Shake it off baby ..




(skirt and top: Thrift, Shoes: Primadonna, Accessories: random)

After being active in the blogosphere for almost 4 months, I often find myself posing in a particular way when I take my outfit photos. I like to stand diagonally to the left, tilt my head to the right at a 45-degree angle, cross my left leg behind my right leg, and hold a smile for 5 seconds until the timer goes off and snaps a picture. I was going to use my "limited amount of space" as an excuse, but look at Miss Denise. She never fails to amaze me with her new and exciting poses to compliment her look of the day :)And she has an eye for affordable yet elegant pieces and wear them like they worth a million bucks. I can only adore her and other "great poser" bloggers from afar. I guess I'm not carefree enough. Or maybe I'm afraid of looking like a fool for trying too hard. Perhaps I should just learn how to shake it off in front of the camera ;)
Anyway am wearing a skirt that is actually a dress, you can see it here. And shoes by Miss Denise's thethriftaholicshop

  2. Hey !
    That skirt is so cool, I wish I could pull of that length, midi is not a easy thing to wear.
    I think your poses are cool,especially the second one :)

  21. I've got a lot of the same posing habits too. I try to shake things up but I swear my body just gravitates to the same way of posing every darned time. Really love that top, such pretty details, and it looks great on you.
