I often describe my style as model off duty. Sans the model. Though I feel as if a leggy blonde could get away with this outfit more easily than myself. The rest of us ordinary people have to work harder to be able to pull off the same thing. Something like this just seems too simple that I feel the need to rely on other elements like makeup, hair, heels and accessories to make up for the lack of skinny pins (not that I have done that here though, hypocrite).
I took these photos with Christine (who I met during MBFWA backstage at Watson x Watson) in between some time out at our shoot on Saturday. If you've been following me on Facebook or Instagram, you'll know I had the opportunity to style my very first photoshoot for the UNSW Photo Club. Let's just say I have a huge respect for full time stylists. It's a tough job. Sourcing pieces, formulating the creative direction, pulling enough options in case something doesn't go quite right on the day, taping shoes - I'm about to embark on the task of returns... all without a car (hooray for public transport). It took a lot more work than I had initially anticipated, but definitely worth it. I'll be sure to post the fruits of my labor in the coming weeks.
