Hey y’all! So, I have the outfit I was planning on posting that fateful day back in December when I ran out of blogger space. 😛 That issue is resolved, and I have these pictures still to share. 🙂
If you’d like to know what I wore to church this morning, I posted my navy lace dress on my sewing blog. 🙂
Now, why do I post so many pictures of the same outfit? I mean, wouldn’t one or two be enough? Yes, maybe. But when I visit a fashion blog (which, admittedly, is very rarely, so I’m not thinking of particulars), I love to see how an outfit moves. I love to see what it looks like moving in real life (thus all my twirly photos). And for me, an outfit is a whole picture. It’s not a picture of shoes, then a hand-on-hip-showing-belt-and-skirt picture, then earrings, with no pictures of the whole ensemble. The hairdo, the make-up, jewelry, outfit, and shoes are all one “look” and personally I like to see them as such (thus I shot down my dad’s paper-bag-on-head idea ;). I love the detail shots on other fashion blogs, and I’d love to do that more on mine (I either always forget or my photographer is not feeling well), but I also like to know the full picture. So, now you know my thought process, ha.
So, what do y’all think of the modest fashion blog oxymoron? I really feel the need to be real with y’all, so in reading my posts I hope you’ll understand when I think outloud and share where my heart is coming from. It can be hard to articulate over the internet. 🙂
