I'm so sad

I wore my polka-dots today and I trekked out to Seattle Center to take my outfit pictures, but then I balanced my camera on a not-too-stable table and it was super windy, so guess what happened? My camera toppled over, the lens thing got dented and now it can't retract back into the camera. I'm super sad because I heart this little camera SO MUCH. Anyway, since it's pretty new, it's still under warranty so I'll be sending it to the Canon repair fairy, and hopefully get it back in two or three weeks.

In the meantime, I won't be doing too many outfit posts (if at all). But here are my polka-dots to prove that I participated in Everybody Everwear day. I know. I hate iPhone pictures too.


I should not be trusted with expensive equipment. See that ugly blue iPhone cover? It's a replacement for the fancy cover I had which cracked after being dropped way too many times.

  1. Boo! That happened to me exactly. Poor little camera has been sitting there with the lens sticking out at an awkward angle for weeks (no warranty for me...).

    Your outfit looks adorable though, and your iPhone photo better than my awkward non-mirror attempts :)

  7. Awww, so sorry Kimmie! The same thing happened to me. I was careless and dropped the camera, and the lens wouldn't retract again. It was a Canon too, so I blame Canon and not us. LOL

    Your outfit is so cute, as is your sad face which is making me LOL.

  14. Noo! Breaking my camera is my worst nightmare. My point and shoot is so flimsy that I'm always afraid a whisper of wind will knock it over. I'm so sorry, Kimmie :( At least you still have a camera phone?

  15. aww you look so sad, and it makes me so sad too! I hope your camera gets fixed real quick! On the upside, I heart your polka dot blouse.

  16. Oh no! That stinks, but at least it's still under warranty. If you don't do pictures for the next three weeks, you'll have to save up all your outfits, and take pictures of them all at once when the camera comes back, so we don't miss anything ;)

    Your polka dots are adorable today, though!

    This Life, Redefined…stop by and say hi!

  22. Oh no :-( I so can relate, it could have happened to me *just like that*, too! And my iPhone cover also has some dents and cracks from the times I dropped it *ouch*
    But I think your iPhone picture is pretty cute ;-) I love all your pictures, high-quality or not :-)

  26. I am sorry about the camera situation. My camera broke before I went to Taiwan and ended up having to buy another one in Taipei.=/ Although, I couldn't document a few days while I was in Taiwan - bummer.

    That outfit looks so darling on you. I love the colour combination!

  27. I had a camera break after it fell off a table once too. Unfortunately it was my cat that knocked it over and they said that wasn't covered under warranty. Boo!

    I say post with phone pictures in the meantime! You always look so cute :]

    ReplyDelete
  28. ahhh I don't think it's under warranty because it's my fault, not the manufacturer's fault it broke. :(

    @Rachel- the skirt is really old, I bought it in Taiwan about 6 years ago.

  34. oh no!!! I hate when I break my nice things! Look on the bright side, the phone is okay! I dropped my 3GS 3 days after getting it and shattered the screen. Luckily I was MUCH better with the second and now with the 4.
