Blogging behind the scenes | The outfit that just won’t work.
Whether you are capturing your capsule wardrobe or your doing a sponsored blog post then you might already find this but sometimes when you are blogging there is just this outfit which in real life is great and yet the moment a cameras present it just looks terrible? This outfit is a prime example; in fact it might just be that this skirt is the problem.
The last time I wore this skirt on the blog it was September 2013 and we had gone to our favourite town ever, Tonbridge Wells and I have never put it on the blog since and I am beginning to see why now!*
I actually don’t think I have worn it that much in real life either I’m not sure why I think it has something to do with feeling quite self conscious in maxi anything which is daft because shorter skirts should probably give me more anxiety but alas. So I haven’t worn this in forever and I put it into the summer capsule wardrobe for one big reason and that is because this is a really great quality skirt. I got it from Monsoon and I really bought it as an investment buy, which is sad because it hasn’t quite lived up to its potential.
But we thought now is the time lets try photographing this skirt! Was it successful? Not particularly. On a girl talk moment I feel like I have the worst bra collection right now and lazy me I have yet to go about replacing them so everything I wear just seems to be completely unbalanced and this outfit just seems to emphasis everything I don’t want. It also makes me look insanely short! Which is beyond crazy when you consider I am almost six foot tall!
Now honestly if I wasn’t doing the capsule wardrobe I would probably never share these photos just write them off but I love a good honest post. I am getting so bored of the top end bloggers of perfectness (not jealous, but totally – how do you look so perfect everyday? I will honestly never know.) So instead here we have it the skirt that just wouldn’t do me any favours!!
Do you guys have those outfits which just look rubbish on film? Or maybe have you chosen some pieces hoping that they will be amazing but are actually no goes? I implore you to be brave and post your bad outfits or outfits that just don’t work on film!!! A little less perfection for a Monday is on the cards I think!
*If you go back and read this post, awesome but also have you seen the shine that is my face! Oh how times have changed!!!
