Rubidoux Shift-ing Photos

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Happy August friends! This week is my 30th birthday. Kinda crazy that I've lived that long, huh? It also means I get my 15% off from Anthro! This year the discount is for online shopping. Unfortunately, I haven't made it into my local store for a while, so I'll be relying on many of y'alls reviews (thanks so much!).

A few posts ago, Laura asked how I did the moving image in this post. That was an old school animated gif. I just took multiple photos and used an online animated gif maker like Picasian or Gickr to put the images together into one animated gif.

On the other hand, the picture above started from a movie and became a series of multi-layered masked image frames in Photoshop (see a tutorial here). It is still technically an animated gif, but lately they're being called cinemagraphs. If you haven't seen them, you should check out some of these AMAZING ones: fashion cinemagraphs, movie-related cinemagraphs. They're really fun to play around with and highly addictive to make - so you may see a few more pop up on the blog now and then.

It feels like everyone needs a good summery pair of beaded sandals. They go especially well with the whole Boho-chic vibe that's been going around. I found this Nine West pair at Marshall's for $20. I love the soft leather and the ankle straps that keep the shoes firmly in place.

The dress is Anthropologie's Rubidoux Shift. I found it at Goodwill, and I immediately fell in love with the neckline. It's like a magnified section of lace. So pretty!

I'm just not a fan of the shift shape on me. I need waist definition! So of course I belted the dress :) . To get back some of the length I wore it with a black lace slip underneath.

I was a little freaked by your fern. This stuff is fascinating. The fern looks like it's breathing.

It was Jen of Vintage Glammz that cleared the animated GIF question up for me. I actually created one yesterday using Gickr. I checked out all the links you provided. Some of those gave me a creepy feeling. Even the ones with the beautiful models.

Happy Birthday Dear Lori!
