Look At Me! I’m a “Fashion” Blogger

I like my outfits. True, they aren’t J Crew, Nordstrom, Shabby Apple, or other high-class, expensive clothing. But, I do like my style and I do like dressing up. I have to–I’m a teacher!
I’ve typically taken pictures with my iPhone through the mirror, or begged my husband to take pictures of me with my iPhone. But, I don’t have a fancy camera. I have a 5 year old Cannon Power Shot A1000 IS (at least I think that is what it is called). 
So, I’ve decided, I will play at being a “fashion blogger” and try doing my own pictures!
Here it goes, my own, self-done photo shoot.
It was kind of awkward. I don’t have a tripod. So, I used my laptop stand (kind of like a music stand) and use the 10 second timer. Then, for the vertical shots, I had to use a bag of brown sugar to hold it up. 1st class quality, I know.
Pretty good self-shot for the close up of the shirt, if I do say so myself! I really love the design of this shirt. But, what I also love about it is how light it is–a perfect summer shirt. It was a bit embarrassing to take the pictures because one of my neighbors was trying to get his dog to pee outside and he was just in his boxers!
I love dangling things–dangling earrings and dangling hair-things. I also really love the bohemian feel.
Shirt: Ross
Capshirt: Wet Seal
Pants: Papaya
Hair Piece: Claire’s
So, what do you think of my first photo shoot?

    Great self shots! I'm still trying to figure out how to work my timer. 🙂

    • Thanks! I took a total of like 25 pictures and only used 3. x_x

  • Absolutely love this look and you did a great job with the photos, much better than when I try to photograph myself!

  • I use my phone for everything too, sometimes you gotta use what you got

    • Exactly! And not all of us are gonna be photographers

  • Oh man, if I had to take self pictures, I probably wouldn't do outfit posts. 😛 You're committed! But that is a very cute top and your hair decoration looks cool, too!

    • Thank you! I just have a reluctant husband who enjoys rolling his eyes when I ask him to take pictures =)

  • You can be whatever you want, including a fashion blogger! Go for it!

  • Very Cool Earrings n' Hair pieces!
