I've loved looking at other people's lookbooks for a long time now. Whether they be clothes, make up, hairstyles, I've been hooked since day one. Considering how much I love looking through or watching them, I decided it was about time that I gave one a go. I wanted to do a video but considering my editing skills are non-existent and I haven't really had time to learn recently. Oh, and my confidence is almost as none existent as my editing skills. Barbara Palvin I am not. I decided there was something about photos that seemed a little less scary than a video.
I have a good camera, a whole wardrobe full of clothes and love putting outfits together so what could possibly go wrong? Answer; everything. Yes, that's very pessimistic of me, I know, but for some reason I was lacking inspiration and felt that every outfit I put together just didn't look right. Not only that, but none of the pictures came out how I'd imagined and the weather clearly wasn't on our side.
We took the photos on what started of as a lovely, sunny, warm day that slowly got greyer and windier up until the point that we had to go inside. We figured that at this point, it wouldn't matter. We'd been taking photos for over two hours and I'd made multiple outfit changes so we had a quick look through the pictures and I was very disappointed though tried not to show it.
I had another look through today and decided they weren't as bad as I'd previously thought (though still not how I'd imagined) but, after being assured that they were fine, I edited them down from one hundred and fifty-something to the ones you will see in this post!
