Industry

Dress? Thrifted Booties? Aldo Clutch? Thrifted Bangles? Thrifted

Hamilton has a big industrial area. The blue collar industry (especially the steel industry) has been a very complicated part of Hamilton's history and identity. It is also provides many interesting places to take outfit pictures...
We'll drive through the area... I'm on the lookout for somewhere to take pictures and Matt is telling me stories about every place we pass. Through his work, he's had interactions with many businesses in the East End industrial area. He'll tell me what places he had access to, who was caught stealing tires from a local mechanic, whose shop is like an episode of Hoarders and then he talks details on some steel production lines and I just nod.
This is us in our element. Matt is a gossip. And I'm too busy looking for a garage door that matches my dress to really listen...

I. LOVE. THIS. :) To make it more wintery, you should get a coat like this! I think the dark maroon color (it looks darker in person), would be beautiful on you, and the shoes are very winter/chic. :) IF you paired this over the dress, you would be good to go for a night out! :)

That dress is amazing, and I love the photos with that green garage door! I'm the same way with my photographer/fiance. He's got tons of fun facts and I'm too busy scoping out photo shoot locations to retain the information. :)

Also, those bangles are so great! I love chunky jewelry, and it really works well with this mod dress!
