RIP Photosmart HP M425

Dress: thrifted
Sweater: thrifted
Socks: Forever 21
Shoes: Naturalizer

These are the last outfit photos I will ever post taken with our cheap point-and-shoot HP camera. After the camera died this evening, I had to rescue the day’s photos by removing the memory card. I was so glad I didn’t lose these photos because I think they’re a bit nicer than usual — the swan song of my little HP.

We were going to wait until December (a month when I get three paychecks, yessss) to buy a new camera. But now we have an excuse to upgrade this week! I’m actually amazed at how long our old $150 camera lasted...we’ve had it for five or six years, I think.

About the outfit: I wore this to do a little thrifting and walk around the Melrose area in L.A. with Jasen. This dress has a somewhat interesting story behind it that I wrote about here. I found it and the sweater I’m wearing at Quality Thrift, which is where I shopped today.


  1. Love this look with the jumper and I adore your socks.

  2. I love the sweater paired with the dress. I'm also a sucker for white socks with everything and the shoes with the double strap are so cute.
    What a curious story about the dress, must've been quite a nice surprise when you came across it after so long.

  3. I'm sorry to hear that your camera died...but how exciting is it to get a new one?!?! Do you know what kind you're going to be getting?

  4. Poor camera. It lasted a really long time, though! I really like the mix of pinkish colors in this look. The sweater works really well over that dress.

  5. I like the pink-on-pink. Monochromatic looks are some of my favorites. Sorry about your camera but also Hurray! New camera!

  6. Really cute outfit on you. It is good that your camera lasted that long, i have an old 35mm Canon hidden somewhere for emergencies that still works, but not as good as my reflex camera.

  7. Sorry to hear about your camera, but that means a new one is in your future!

    Cute outfit, glad the pics were saved :)

  8. I'd say you go your moneys worth out of that camera, especially in this day-and-age of throwaway electronics!

    I am smitten with this outfit. It's definitely one of my favorites of yours. I think it has to do with those beautiful Autumn hues :)

  9. Sorry to hear about your camera. But at least you get to invest in a new little camera to snap all of your photos!

    I LOVE this outfit. It is so classic and beautiful. What a perfect color combo for the season.

  10. i love when collars pop out of jumpers! cute as look!

  11. What a lovely dress!! i like the color :)


  12. a new camera is always a very exciting purchase. i used to thrift in melrose when i was in high school and wanted to feel far away from orange county.

  13. Oh no! Sorry to hear about your camera :(
    These photos are lovely though! I love the color scheme of this outfit, and that sweater is just lovely!

  14. This outfit is so cute. I love the dress and the sweater. And the socks with those little black shoes? Great! Sorry to hear that your little camera died, but at least you can get new one now.

  15. My computer is so slow that it loads your photos in segments. Which is kind of fun because I can try and guess what type of skirt you have on as it loads. This time I was saying....'have cool socks on'.... 'have cool socks on'....and when it loaded I was rewarded with your awesome socks and shoes.

    Perfectly done pretty girl!


  16. Really cute look, I love these colors. And I just adore pull over sweaters on top of collared dresses, such a cute look :)
