PONCHO 1I was going through my photos yesterday and came across these pics we shot a few weeks ago with Lena and that I simply forgot to share with you. The sad thing is that it is the last photo shoot to be published here as I am “out of service” for another couple of weeks. There’s nothing worth photographing around me lately as 90% of the day I am lying in my bed and watching TV, reading and sleeping. Even the food doesn’t look good these days, so don’t be surprised if my future posts are only about outfits that I will be creating from my boring bed.

Anyway, for the occasion, I went for this very cozy, baroque style poncho which in addition to being a must-have piece this season is also an elegant and versatile outerwear piece working with everything from denim to cocktail dresses.

Wish you a beautiful day guys, and thanks for visiting my blog.

duo 1Posing in front of the lens is in itself quite challenging but it gets worse when two or more people are involved. We all have done group pictures in which we looked less attractive than the others and vice versa, because knowing how to sit, look or what to do with your hands isn’t as easy as one may think. With Lena, we have only done a few photo shoots together that weren’t very successful, so we wanted to try again and practice a bit in order to improve our posing skills when doing photo shoots together. I selected only 4 pictures because the rest isn’t really good. ^_^ However the progress is obvious and next time, there will definitely be more pics to see.

Take care guys and thanks so much for visiting my blog!

N A V Y

Being able to wear a mini dress in middle of October is more than I asked for, but there are some things to take into consideration when you decide to step out with bare legs. Even though it is around 17 degrees outside these days, you will need a pair of opaque tights or over-the-knee boots to be sure it doesn’t get too windy under your dress. In my case, I didn’t need to cover up my legs more than that because I spent most of the day indoors.
For the top part of the outfit, I went for some of my favorite fall/spring pieces including of course the light and comfortable shirt and military jacket which are perfect for layering. And since I was in a sporty mood, my footwear choice seems obvious! The super comfy and warm wedge sneakers are great for rainy and cold seasons, so I really enjoy wearing them right now. But speaking of shoes, as I mentioned before, over-the-knee boots are something every woman should have in her closet. Many would say that this type of boots are not made for shorter women (under 170cm) and would make you feel bad about wanting them, but that’s total BS! It is of course a particular pair of boots that really looks amazing on long, skinny legs but they shouldn’t only be reserved for models or model-looking girls. The only thing you should be paying attention to is to find the right heel for your stature. The shorter you are, the higher the heel should be.
For my part, I came across a nice flat pair of over-the-knee boots last year and I almost bought them, but then I realized that I would look better with at least a 7-cm heel ’cause I am not Gisele (as my husband reminded me!). Now I am hunting for THE right pair and am pissed to find them online only. God knows that I cannot buy shoes before trying them on, so I will just keep waiting until stores here start to follow the trends and offer us a greater number of fashionable and modern boots.

Wish you all a beautiful Friday and great weekend!!
See you next post guys,

HOOD MOOD

baseball 1Double trouble. The serious faces we tend to make while shooting are giving a false image of who we really are. We will rectify that as soon as possible, it is a promise. In addition, we still have all of our teeth and hiding them is a real shame, don’t you think?! ^_^

As for the style we went for, it was 100% sporty and comfortable, exactly what we needed on that busy day. A kind of look that is quite simple and wearable, that can be worn either for a drink with friends or to go shopping or a barbecue with the family.

Enjoy the pics folks,
