Beacon Hill



This weekend has been nothing but rain and I think I've mostly just laid around and slept for the majority of it. Today I got to hang out with my two favorite boys (my boyfriend and my twin brother Jeff, wink) and we ended up testing out Jeff's fancy polaroid camera!

These pictures were taken on some cute little street in Beacon Hill. I miss working in that neighborhood, the little narrow brick streets are charming and I love looking into the shop windows.

Fantastic photos! Especially the one with the buckets... And that coat is super, i love pleats on the backs of things.

There is something about polaroids that have a charming effect on you, doesn't it? Well done Jeff! Gorgous Effie!....I guess I will have to give your boyfriend a thumbs up too. :)

Anywhos...I have bad news, right now, at this time, I am not able to have a blog yet. :( Hopefully soon! Though I might be able to start a ebay (or) esty store! Any advice would have so much! Contact: dreaminwonderland@gmail.com

These photos are gorgeous! I love how the coat stands out in them.

You're so lucky to be surrounded by talented photographer boys, or maybe it's they who are lucky to have you around as their model ;)

Love the photos!!!

Louise said...

Quite apart from these photos being completely charming and your coat being just lovely, how is it you look so sweet and natural in photos? It's so hard not to look silly posing, and you always do so wonderfully.

Effie said...

thank you so, so much everyone!!! these pictures are some of my favorite ones Jeff's ever taken! that boy is good!

kathleen: I'll send my boyfriend your thumbs up! And things are a bit crazy right now for me, but I'll definitely get in touch with you soon about the online stuff!

missa: that's awfully sweet of you to say, but I think it's just that these boys are awfully talented!

heather: I think the only thing in the hat boxes is dust - but it was nice to finally put them to good use instead of sitting around in my room!

tara: girl, it's from anthropologie! I'll have to look in the tag at the brand - maybe there are some floating around ebay?

louise: thanks for saying that! I really appreciate it because I feel the same way as you! Jeff took 10 photos and these were the only ones that I liked and didn't feel like I looked like an idiot posing!

jess: you're the luckiest girl for having once lived there! those houses are all so nice!

jeff: thank you for answering all the technical questions for me! what would I do without you??? also, three comments?!? you're about to start a blog of your own aren't you?? haha PS I wanna see the pics? and not in two years from now!
