Loving Life after 50

A Labour of Fashion #140 and a Cream of a Day

waiting at the bar in Summer White in a pretty sundress and crochet cardigan with a straw fedora

Oh my I got so caught up playing with Photoshop and actions I almost forgot about A Labour of Fashion. Where has the week gone, Thursday already and almost the Labour Day weekend.

Photoshop

I finally have mastered a few actions. Click Start Club and the ones shared by Randa I seem to have mastered.  The resizing to 1800 and to 735 I have perfected.  Watermarking seems to elude me totally and let’s not even talk about the actions I purchased tonight.  Possibly I should have mastered a bit more Photoshop before I started purchasing actions. The sparkle add-ons I mastered two nights ago and now I forget everything I discovered.  I think I need a week of not creating posts and just playing. Photoshop is hooking me though.

Update: After finishing my post I actually went back and mastered two watermarks.  Yea me.

OOTD

Went with what I refer to as my “Festival Look“, a dress and cardi I discovered at Forever 21 and wore a lot last year to music events. I have worn this dress a few times like here and here and even here but it never gets old, something about cream and fringe and lace that just make you feel great. I switched up the necklace and the sandals and it changes the look. Enough about me and my looks though are you ready to show me some fab end of Summer Fashions?

    Love the dress and cardi together. I use Picmonkey Pro to do my editing…to be honest, Photoshop intimidates me!

  • Very pretty dress! It looks great with your neutral cardigan and sandals. I use Lightroom for my photos, but have been thinking of trying photoshop – primarily for my portrait photography, not necessarily the blog.
