This photoshoot was one of the easier ones I’ve done for this blog (Well, a wall like that is basically a gift to a fashion blogger, isn’t it?), but it was also one of the most awkward.
I mean, I’m used to people staring at me as they pass by when I’m taking photos, but the thing is, I’m ALSO used to them actually passing by. This time, however, a couple of curious tourists apparently decided I was some kind of street entertainer or something, so they just stopped to watch: and then, when we kept on shooting, they found a nearby bench, and settled in for the show. They even took out snacks and everything. Yeah, it was pretty mortifying, to be honest. I’ve no idea what kind of entertainment they thought I was providing, but I can only assume they were disappointed, because I didn’t get a tip or anything. I guess I’ll have to abandon the plan to take my show on the road?
Anyway, this obviously wasn’t my first rodeo, and “awkward” is how I operate most of the time, so I toughed it out in order to document the wearing of this dress, which was a Zara bargain from a couple of years ago. And when I say “it was a bargain”, I mean, “It was £25, so I obviously bought it in navy, too.” (J Crew are currently selling this similar one, but … it’s J. Crew, so it’s not £25.) Just as obviously, I wore it with that white blazer which has featured in almost all of my posts lately. Sadly, this was the day I asked Terry to hold said blazer while I took a photo of something, and he dropped it in a pile of dirty. (EDIT: That was obviously supposed to read “a pile of dirt”. I came in here to fix it as soon as I spotted the typo, but I actually think I’m going to just try to make that phrase A Thing, instead. Can we do that? Like, “Ooh, look at that big pile of dirty!” or “I felt like throwing her into a giant pile of dirty!”) It doesn’t look so good now, that blazer.
Good job I got that replacement, huh?
P.S. Ask me anything…
