What I Wore Wednesday - 02.03.11

I'm addicted to fashion blogs, I love looking through the posts of bloggers who showcase their outfit choices. Most of the time it just makes me envious that I can't afford the clothes they have! But sometimes I also find myself a little inspired to try to re-work items already in my wardrobe.

I get really inspired by editorials in fashion magazines. It's often where I draw ideas from for posing subjects, and although I try not to pose people too much sometimes I meet someone and just know that that particular pose is going to look amazing in photographs, with what they're wearing and where they are. I can't resist it!

I'm going to try out a new feature on this blog called 'What I Wore Wednesday' and I'm basically going to post pictures of myself in an outfit I particularly liked from the previous week. I plan to share with you where the clothes are from, why I liked it and where I wore it. I don't think I'm amazingly fashionable but every now and then I do pull an outfit together that impresses me! It will also give me the chance to have a bit of practice at self portraiture, and learn what its like to be in front of the camera for once.

I advise everyone (ok, maybe just the girls?!) to go and read blogs by Keiko Lynn, The Vintage ValleyLookbook and Weardrobe as some of these people do this for a living, and are obviously much more style-savvy than I am! You'll be addicted in no time. (And if anyone knows of some others I should be subscribing too leave me a message in the comments!)

So if you're interested here is what I wore the other day. I was only popping into town to meet with a business advisor and talk over my business plan. Sometimes it's just nice to put on some clothes that make you feel good, because all this working from home lark means some days I just hang about the house locked to my laptop in my jeans and a hoody!

Dress: Tu at Sainsburys
Belt: H&M
Cardigan: Next
Leggings: H&M
Boots: Peacocks

(oooh I'm such a bargain hunter!!)

Next time I'm going to try and look less moody in my pictures... ;) Let me know if you like this blog feature, I'm a bit worried about posting it to be honest! I know it's not too focused on photography but sometimes I just have to indulge my girlie side!

  1. I think this is a great idea Kerrie! I have a friend that will love that dress from Tu - she always picks up such great bits from there.

    What could be more relevant to photography, especially what you specialise in, then what the subjects are wearing. Makes total sense to me.
