point => shoot => pose



{Left: My suit jacket. Right: The neutral bra strap that the suit jacket successfully covered all day.}

I do believe that the smartest thing I've ever done in my life is purchase a 2-year extended warranty plan on my camera. Yes, my little point & shoot camera has time and time again broken and succumb to my heavy use of it and that in-house warranty has saved my life. I take a lot of pictures. Not like... oh, I go out and snap 20 pictures... I have my camera with me at all times. If I do forget it or I go somewhere and it breaks and I'm unable to document anything if I want, I have less fun. Fo' reals. I live my life in accordance with the principle that when I reach into my purse, I will find a camera and it will make my day better.

Last week, my reigning little point & shoot friend died. When I took it to the techies at Best Buy, they simply told me that damage wasn't worth the price of the camera. I flashed the extended warranty at them (like a baller) and 15 minutes later, I was walking out of the store with a brand new cam all free of charge to me.

Life is whole again. Those 2 days without it in my purse literally scarred me.

What did I do after I left? Tried out my new gadget on an outfit post of course!
What I wore to work May 4, 2011.

The H&M jacket and the Free People tank literally fall all over my skin like BUTTTAH. Other than that, this outfit isn't that cool- I just wanted to try my camera.

Happy Thursday to all!

Love the OOTD and your glasses! (Reminds me that I should be wearing mine!)

We NEVER buy any of those extended warranties. I love that you flashed the EW "like a baller". *Giggles* My Walmart Black Friday special camera is dying and I really need to get a new one. Maybe I'll think about getting the EW this time! :)

Ha, congrats on getting a whole new camera!! Bet you didn't quite expect that, or did you? And also, I LOVE this tank top.

yayyy it's thursday! i am so glad- though this week kinda flew by. love your glasses- i really need new ones - i wear them at night. But I would rather spend $ on more "important" things, ie- a new iphone case and a new pair of marc by mj sunglasses that i love but are totally unnecessary lol

i know what you mean about the camera. when i'm out doing stuff, i have to have a camera. the one on my iphone won't do. if i am unable to take pictures or have to use my iphone, it makes me sad :( i am just going to start carrying my dslr camera around no matter what i go

Nice shots, nice smile and nice outfit. I carry 3 cameras with me all the time. When i'm doing photoshoots, I carry the big Nikon one, and in my bag I carry 2 point and shoot, plus the camera phone and a smaller one just in case.

Can never be too prepared.

By the way, you are the perfect example of perfection, the opposite of the people I wrote about today. :)

that's awesome the extended warranty is always great. however, sometimes i find it pointless to get an extended warranty for some things. love the shots from your camera what kind of point and shoot is it.

loving the outfit!!

LOL, i take my camera with me all the time, too. even though my android phone has a good camera, a real point and shoot can never be replaced! my friend dropped it last weekend after a few rounds of shots, the tip of the lens is loose so now it doesn't close fully, but she said she'll get me a new one.

Punctuation Mark said...

what cute outfit! have a great weekend!

Kara said...

I think you might be a genius. I never buy the warranty and I ruined a camera last summer by dropping it! I just bought a new $75 point and shoot and opted out of buying the warranty...probably a dumb move on my part but i figure if I'm dumb enough to drop a camera TWICE then I shouldn't deserve to have one at all! Hahaha. Fab outfit as usual. I love me a good blazer.

warranties on expensive electronics have saved my life so many times!
I'm kinda in love with that grey jacket!

Rick said...

you love the camera, and the camera loves you back...lucky for us your fans and followers! :) I loved this post!! I think H&M's stock just went up :)

Raven said...

You are SOOO too cute. totally love you. stealing your button, don't ever wanna miss your posts.

I TOTALLY agree on getting the extended warranty's. For certain things, they are TOTALLY worth it. case in point: cameras!
