WHEN YOU DECIDE TO START blogging and you become the subject in front of the lens, you realize that it’s not as easy as you had thought it was. The image of yourself that you have visualized in your head doesn’t often match the preview on the camera, and after a good number of photoshoots, you realize that you are a pose repeater.
I WANT TO REFER TO SEPTEMBER as the twilight of summer, but this September has been so indecisive, it has become a styling nightmare.
“YOU LOOK LIKE A LADY that owns a resort!” my friend exclaimed as she greeted me wearing this cotton button up dress. “Well, I haven’t met one, but thanks!”* My planned first sentence to her was initially different.
ONE OF MY FAVORITE THINGS to do is finding ways to incorporate pieces from different sizes into my wardrobe. Of course, when I buy or sew for myself, I always keep in mind proper fit and length unless I am going for an oversized look. But sometimes I somehow acquire pieces that are not my size, but look so appealing that I just have to find a way to wear them.
CONTRARY TO POPULAR BELIEF, I think red is the easiest color to pull off. Red itself is so dominant, it immediately assigns secondary roles to other colors combined with it. Instead of making you think “how do I match this color in order to bring out its beauty”, red comes off as the center piece that needs no further enhancement and that, in fact, orders you to work around its beauty and fill in the voids as you see fit. That’s the easy part.
