I’m trying something new today.
I decided to make do without my usual detail photo or my triptych of faux candids. Instead, you get a triple threat of full-body portraits because the dress is such a showstopper that it demands different and prominent advertising.
And if you buy that baloney, I’ve got some desert property to sell ya.
Snark aside, the reality of it all is that I had been in such a frenzy trying to capture the light during this week’s photo shoot that I plumb forgot to take detail shots. And because this was the first outfit to be photographed, and because the first outfit always has me at a disadvantage – I always have to warm up to the camera, even after this many months of blogging – I just didn’t have enough pictures for a triptych.
Ah, first-world problems and the behind-the-scenes challenges of a style blogger, eh?
Anyhow, this week’s theme is Going Geo(metric), riding on the coattails of Anne’s 52 Pick-me-up challenge from last week (we’re off schedule again). I plan to regale you with outfits that gyrate and mesmerize and hopefully along the way, some of them will correspond to other people’s linkups so I can kill multiple birds with one stone.
Today’s offering is an oldie but goody. I’ve had this dress for years and it’s still going strong because of the classic shift silhouette that we all know I adore. I also love the bold pattern and colors that, combined, allow me to go easy on the accessorizing. A plain long chain and my new fave stilettos and I’m good to go.
Sorry, Caitlin, for such a simple offering for your Dress Up (or Down) linkup. But sometimes, one just has to capitalize on the very nature of a dress; the fact that they’re an all-in-one affair makes for effortless, basic styling, and if said dress has a fabulous pattern, then even easier, yeah?
Now if only those sunnies were prescription ones and I could actually wear them as more than just a prop!
