The life, style, and derp of a small-town girl. Dress-up misadventures, crafting frustrations, and little obsessions can be found here.

This blog is full of my face. You have been warned.

 

The Little White Dress
People keep talking about the Little Black Dress (LBD) and how it’s an absolute style essential. I don’t deny that - I actually own 7 LBDs in varying degrees of formality - but I feel that the Little White Dress deserves some loving, too.
White clothes are often avoided because they’re giant stain targets. If you’re careful, though, your whites can go pretty far. I decided to dress this up by adding glittery pumps and a clutch, with an updo. It could be dressed down with a denim jacket and sneakers, too.
Yes, I know that white isn’t exactly the most forgiving color in terms of creating illusions of curves or defining shape, but the LWD comes in so many styles and cuts that there’s bound to be at least one out there for you. It’s a lighter, breezier option. (Can you tell yet how much I adore white?)

A New Beginning

This is my first legit shoot for 2013, and I am extremely happy with it. These are just some of the shots that Life (yes, that’s her real name!) took, and I am definitely excited to see the rest!

CONFESSION: I was supposed to use one of these shots as my entry in dolldelight’s model search.

I’ve dropped out of the contest, not because I don’t have a presentable entry, but for personal reasons. I looked at these shots and realized that while we were shooting, I wasn’t thinking about the contest. I was doing this because it’s something I love. I work with the photographer to try and produce the best possible shots. I do it because this is the art that I choose.

I personally believe that our efforts deserve more than to be entered in a popularity contest. I understand the value of an artist’s effort, and I don’t think any form of art should be judged according to its popularity, but rather, by its quality. (the entries in round 1 look good, don’t get me wrong. Check them out yourself!)

This shoot marks a new beginning for me. A renewed appreciation for photography, and for my chosen art. I made it my new year’s resolution to do at least one good shoot every month, and I think this is an excellent start. I’m ridiculously excited to shoot again, and I am already preparing for February’s shoot. :D

Just got home from Hong Kong! Prepping my entry for that one, but here, have a photo set! I absolutely adore layers, and I wish it was easier to get away with it in the Philippines. The cold weather in HKG was perfect for layering all the fluffy winter clothes that I love!
