This Is The Day

Here are a few self-portraits I took in my apartment, featuring my absolute favourite vintage dress. I love wearing clothes that possess a unique vibe and a bit of history! This dress has the loveliest ethereal shape and some delightful crochet details. However, it is super fragile so it's more of a collection piece that I save for special occasions. It has more than 40 years of existence, after all. I must take great care of it!

Side note: I'm obsessed with shooting RAW and editing my pictures in Adobe Lightroom. Taking outfit photos inside my apartment is pretty hard since the lighting is quite poor, but I can fix it in Lightroom without destroying the originals. I like how these photos turned out, especially the rainbow sorbet colours of my dress! Just one thing: I should have smiled. Hehe.

Memphis Blues Again

I must admit that writing a blog post after such a long absence is incredibly bizarre - I almost feel like a stranger on my own blog. Never mind! I was going through my hard drive and found some outfit shots I took last October. It took these on a very windy day, just 30 minutes before sunset - my favourite conditions to take pictures. Even if the wind makes my hair go nuts (so. many. tangles), I love how it gives movement to clothing. With long pleated skirts, the effect is almost surreal and clearly worth the consequent hair untangling session ;)
