A new location....

To some it might seem really obvious what to do about not having enough lighting- add some. That has taken me about 2 weeks to work out.
Today it occurred to me that if I took things outdoors, and in particular being inspired by Karla's Closet, I might just be able to capture the detail I want because well, sunlight is a wonderful thing isn't it.
Jokes on me kids, don't worry.

Vintage fur stole: Savers

Lovely! I have a vintage stole but I haven't gotten brave enough to wear it out into public yet.

yup the natural lighting is very nice and so is the wind blowing in your hair. hehe
Was this taken in your backyard or one of those old little stone alleys around richmond/collingwood?

Love it! The fur looks great. I also have a vintage stole, a fox complete with an articulated jaw, but am yet to find the occasion/nerve to wear it. ALL my friends hate it and most refuse to even touch it!

Sabrina said...

That stole looks... fierce! I can't believe I said that haha. Great find.

You're lucky those tights are so black! Very short 'dress' but as they say 'if you've got it, flaunt it!' You definitely have it!

During winter here in London I rush home on the tube and try to catch at least 10 mins of sun to take my blog pics - the neighbours think I'm mad. Natural light is a photographers best friend. xf

Flawless look, as always! I love everything about this outfit. The stole, the shoes, the cardigan used as a dress. I love your new header, you look amazing in this picture!

SJ- Take the step, once you wear it out you will get so many compliments, I've even had people offer to buy it straight off my back.

My Charlie Girl- I will be in touch over email, I love your images!

A Dreamer- you are very close with the laneway reference but if I told you it would reveal too much about where the maids deposit my empty shoe boxes. Let's just say it is a laneway, in a very old part of town.

FG- I'm sure all my neighbours think I'm quite strange too!

Sabrina and TC- I'll take fierce! I'll take flaunt it!

Silje as always your comments are warm and complimentary, thank you for coming back.
