One Blouse, 3 Ways

IMG_8308

“I have nothing to wear”. Have you ever uttered those words before? I know, I have. Sometimes it’s just hard to find clothes ok? I wish I was one of those rich,  celebrities who have an infinite number of clothes you know? Life would be so much easier! But, I’m not rich, so I have to make do with what I have. You can always make a brand new outfit out of the clothes, that you do own. Make it work girl. Today I’ll be showing you how I styled One Blouse in 3 ways.

 

So I bought this top about a year ago and this is how I styled it in 3 ways.

Blouse with Jeans

I styled the top with jeans from forever 21. These are some of my favourite jeans because it’s embroidered with pizza on it. It’s just different and I like different. This style can be worn on a night out with friends or a party. I purchased these jeans about 3 years ago, so they are sold out, but you can purchase similar ones Here. The blouse is from Zara but it’s a year old but you can find similar ones Here

Blouse with A Skirt

This look can be worn to church. The plaid skirt is from H&M. I really like this look because it’s very sophisticated. The green blouse  makes the outfit pop. The skirt is old but you can find similar styles Here

Blouse with Trousers

This look can be worn to the office. The pants are pinstriped and are from this local store called Suzy shier in my community. You change shoes and put on stilettos or flats.

Yes, so this is how I styled this blouse in 3 different ways. You don’t have to be rich or have plenty of clothes to look fashionable. You can work with what you have. Instead of spending money all the time to buy new clothes, just style the ones you have differently. It’s easy!

My Favourite Stores to Shop At And Why

” You only shop at 3 stores in the mall, what?”, my brother asks in disbelief. Yes, I only shop at like 3 stores. I don’t know, I’m just hard to please. You know what I’m saying? It’s taken me a long time to figure out what I like, but I think I’ve finally found what I really like…. Keep Reading…

Everyone probably likes these stores but here they are….

1 Zara – Look Zara just gets me, or I get Zara? I don’t know but it’s my favourite store. I like that the pieces are so elegant and fashionable. Every time I wear something from Zara, I feel like I’m on the runway. I can find pieces for church, or a casual day out. I know some people have said that Zara is very expensive and yes some items are but you can find affordable items for 20$ and even less. You just gave to search.

2 Forever 21 – I like Forever 21 because they always have lots of different styles of jeans. Yes, jeans! I love jeans ok? I have like 20 pairs of jeans and most of them are from Forever21. They also have really cute summer clothes

3 H&M – This store is a good place to find work outfits. They sell a lot of blazers and dress pants for affordable prices

Justfab – I love buying all my shoes from Justfab. They have so many styles!

I love these stores the most. They just have the types of clothes that I love to wear. Do I shop at other stores sometimes? Yes, but I always come back to these ones. They’re my favourite ok? Will I ever find new favourite stores, yes I just have to keep looking.

My blazer is from Forever 21, it’s really long so I wore it as a dress. I bought it about a year ago so they don’t have that olive colour anymore but they have it in cream. You can shop it Here

How I take my Outfit Photos

AfterlightImageHey guys! Welcome back to my blog! I was supposed to post on Sunday but I was just enjoying the last day of summer. I went to 2 BBQS in one day! I had so much fun!

Today, I want to touch on How I take my Blog photos.

As I look at the newest Vogue Magazine cover and look at people like Bella Hadid posing, I wonder, “How the hell do you look this good?”. And then I go cry in my room. I’m kidding, but in the last 6 months since starting this blog I finally feel like I know how to take my blog photos! Finally!

AfterlightImage

So how do I take my Outfit photos for my blog? How do I pose? Keep reading….

1 Find Someone who you’re comfortable with – Look I’m not saying that I can’t work with someone that I’m not comfortable with but at the beginning of starting this blog I started with someone who I wasn’t comfortable with and it showed in my photos. I’m not blaming the person but I needed direction and I wasn’t really getting that. I’m grateful that they wanted to help me. I wanted tips like “Turn your head this way, or that looks better”. I didn’t get that. And again I’m not blaming the person but I think I was just trying to figure it out. I mean, it doesn’t make sense to take 50 photos but only like one out of the bunch. Now, my mom takes my photos and I feel very comfortable and I also use my tripod as well and I can actually see how I’m posing.

2 Find somewhere to place your hands – This was hard for me at the beginning. My hands are really long OK? I never really know where to place them. One day, my best friend came over and gave me some tips. She said, “Just find somewhere to place your hands other than your side”. From then on I started placing  them in my hair, on my knees etc.

3 Know your Angles –  For me the left side of my face is my good side. When posing for the camera I mostly  turn my head to the left side. It just works visually better for me. Also holding the camera high, it makes you look skinnier. Whenever my mom takes my photos I always remind her to hold the camera up. Sometimes she gets annoyed HAHA but I love my mom.

4 Look at how other people pose – I got tired of the way how I posed, so I saw an Article on Who What Wear that literally said, “New Poses You Should Try’, and I was like God, is this you? I studied how the people posed, and I decided to try that bending down one that all the insta models do a couple of weeks ago  and I really liked the result. Yes, not every pose works for everyone but test out which ones work.

5 Practice facial expressions in the mirror – When I’m too serious my photos don’t look great so I find that smiling or smirking works best. Looking away from the camera also gives a good vibe as if you’re reflecting on something.

6 Lighting is Everything – Whether you’re taking your photos inside, or outside, lighting matters. In the summertime, I like to take my photos in the mornings at 9am on Sundays. Early mornings are when the sun is brightest. I wake up at 8, get dressed  apply my makeup and take my photos. When I’m indoors I turn my room light on and I also have another light that I put beside my tripod that helps my photos look bright.

Yes, so these are the things that I’ve learned in the 6 months that I’ve been blogging. Am I an expert? No, but this is my personal experience and I’m still learning everyday. I’m also finally getting more  comfortable in front of the camera. It’s taken me 6 months can you believe it? But everything takes time, even Bella Hadid said it the other day in an interview that she’s just now learning her angles, and she’s been modelling for awhile now.

The moral of this story? Things take time and that’s OK.

My dress is from Zara, I bought it 2 years ago so I don’t think they have it anymore but you can find similar ones Here
