OOTD: Got me on my toes
October 23, 2011
♥ Blouse: New Look *** Skirt: Primark *** Shoes: New Look ♥
I feel like my face looks a bit "off" in these pictures. Possibly because my camera picks up the color of my foundation but not the fake tan on my body...thanks, camera! Plus I had just woken up from a nap so that's my excuse. As much as I love winter, I really hate that it gets so dark in the evenings now. I took these pictures around 4pm but it was so dark and gloomy which meant I had to bump my ISO up far too high and use photoshop to try and brighten them a little. It makes close-up pictures especially difficult because my hand always shakes and end up with blurry pictures! I could just start using my flash but I really don't like how it washes everything out, i'm definitely a fan of natural lighting! I think I will have to start taking OOTD photos in the early morning again.
Most of my outfit today is from New Look. I love that their size 18 blouses fit me (size 20 in Primark won't even go over my chest!) Snapped this blouse up as soon as I spotted it in store, its very similar to one I purchased there at the end of summer but the color is more fitting for A/W. I didn't want to distract from the pretty lace detailing so I kept it simple (and accessory-free) and teamed it with a plain cotton bodycon skirt from Primark. The shoes are from New Look too, they're so comfortable despite the massive heels. I am waiting for them to make them in a nice light nude shade!
Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend
