Plus, it's really hard to take daily outfit shots without showing my glasses unless I get really creative with the posing.
Beret, berets.com (how delightfully self-explanatory); black tank; mustard 3/4 sleeve sweater, Forever 21.Why yes, I did buy a beret. And now it smells like smoke (eew), as I wore it to a bar last night and forgot that people still smoke in bars in Kentucky.
This shot is obviously a rumpled after-bar self-portrait, but I'm still the definition of "jaunty angle" with that beret. Why did I ever fear hats?
Fur collar wrap, Via's Vintage; stretch cotton gloves, vintage via eBay; stretch satin sheath dress being hidden by my fur and dramatic hand gesture, custom-made (Carole Bruns in Minneapolis- she's goooood).
I wore this to class the other night. Not as a "I feel like wearing stretch satin and fur to campus" ensemble, but as a costume for a PR pitch of "Vertigo". The lining of that fur is a brilliant green, which always makes me think of Kim Novak's fur in the restaurant shot of "Vertigo". I had to find a way to bring that into the presentation, so hell, why not go all out and midcentury-glam it up?
I am having a hell of a time finding a way to take outfit shots at home. I may have to get a tabletop tripod and find some self-timed setup, as this outstretched-arm shot is going to get really old. Plus, it's hard to hold the camera steady when your gloves are a rather silky cotton and you keep losing your grip on the camera body while pressing the shutter.
