Tanya Scheer Orange Tie Dye Dress

Does this dress look like me or what? I don’t think I could have designed a dress myself that was more my style. Tanya Scheer started designing dresses after she became a mom and realized she had less time for herself but she still wanted to look (and feel) amazing. Her simple, yet gorgeous dresses are perfect staples for anyone’s closet if you ask me! This tie dye dress and the bougainvillea sun dress are my FAVES. But the short silk dresses are adorable too!

And the best part….Tanya is generously offering Stylish Housewife readers 30% off any tanyascheer.com order with code STYLISH30. Enjoy!

Nikon D7000 vs Nikon D40

In other news…I got a new camera!!! I upgraded from the Nikon D40 to the Nikon D7000 (body only). More bells & whistles! Which means my pictures are going to be a disaster until I get it figured out. I just BARELY figured out how to use my new 50mm lens and you guys saw how long that took me! The biggest difference I’ve noticed so far is the color of my images. Something is DEFINITELY off. The photo on the left is taken with my new camera and for some reason all of the colors are muted. Everything looks flat (even my lipstick) and my eyes look darker. I much prefer the coloring in the photo on the right. In my camera’s defense, the pics were taken at different settings (LEFT: ISO 100 F/2.5 RIGHT: ISO 400 F/3.2) but still all of my images taken with the new camera are leaving skin tones with a greenish-grey tint (no matter the setting). I’m sure it will just take some getting used to but if any of you are Nikon users, I would GREATLY appreciate any tips/advice! =)

    Love your blog! I bet you could “fix” the color issue by going into the menu and choosing the “vivid” setting. You can also tweek each actual value for color saturation and sharpness. It’s not as difficult as it sounds. Nice upgrade!

    What is your white balance set to? Maybe try shade instead of auto?

    That dress!! It’s perfect! I am styling one of her pieces soon…she has such gorg dresses! And I am sorry about the camera. Wish I could help, but I have a Sony and have no clue how to use it…thank goodness my husband has sort of figured it out. You are beautiful regardless of the photo coloring. πŸ™‚

    Love the dress, that orange looks great on you! Have fun with your new camera. We’ve been going back and forth about updating our DSLR. So many choices, it’s so hard to decide.
