Thank you guys so much for all the nice comments about the new format of my lookbook photos! I’m glad you guys like them and the change was good for me. It’s funny, when I first started documenting my outfits 2+ years ago, the other style bloggers (there was way less of us back then!) were like me. No fancy backgrounds, no fancy shots. It was just purely about the outfit. Along the way, sites like lookbook.nu and Chictopia started up (which I’ve never joined, I have mixed feelings about them) which I think sparked the model like poses and editorial like shots. The no smile, eyes down, really moody kind of poses against a grungy background/empty field/brick wall. Well, that’s certainly not me so I went on my merry way with my non model-like outfit shots and was fine with them. I resisted the change because I liked my plain jane, no frills lookbook shots but as my blog grows, I’ve gone through some changes (this is my 3rd blog design I’m on!) so I thought about it and thought that it was time to get with the times. Hang out with the “in crowd” 🙂 So I requested a different way to shoot my lookbooks and my ever so patient husband, obliged my every request on what needed to be shot and how to shoot it until we were happy with the style that was shot. I also owe my husband a big thank you for he’s the one that came up with the idea of adding “What I’m Wearing” to the photos and I got a lot of feedback that you guys love it. (Hubs also came up with the silly title of this post. lol!) Being a blogger for as long as I have, it’s only natural to go through some changes and I feel as I’ve been stuck in a rut for a bit so I’m ready to change it up. I’m not sure what else I’ll be changing, I think I’ll just be adding a variety to the type of posts I write (not just style/fashion related) so if you have any suggestions of what else you’d like to see, feel free to let me know!
Onto the outfit! I searched high and low for pink pants and my first stop in San Francisco was Zara where I had a suspicion that they would have them and they did! They had 2 pairs that I really wanted but I ended up just taking these home as I thought 2 pairs of pink pants may be a bit excessive (but now I want the other pair. haha) My outfit was inspired by an outfit I saw in a magazine as I loved how they styled the pink pants with the ribbon belt so that’s exactly what I did! It’s just a fun twist to the usual belt and I’m loving it. Just go to the fabric store and buy a ribbon that’s long enough to fit your waist! Super easy and cheap too!
I mentioned on a previous lookbook how much I love these pumps and I still do! If you are a size 6.5 you are so lucky as Bluefly.com has the same pair for 20% off! I’m also dying for these two tone peep-toe pumps. So pretty!! The Cole Haan Air Talia pumps are great for a “designer” pump but at a better price point.
“What Goes Around Come Around Vintage” bags are always in fantastic shape but they are all still really expensive. Still, I do love looking at their selection of bags and jewelry. And if you haven’t read my post on my tips of where/how to buy vintage Chanel, click here!
