With the last of the sun…

13 Jan 2011

So guys, I tried really hard to get some cool lens flare…

Yeah, fail.  They’re almost all like that, and the ones that aren’t have the worst chromatic aberration ever.  So none of that, then.  I’ll just have to keep trying!

I haven’t worn these liquid leggings in forever so I thought it was about time I got them out again.  I was going for something a bit tougher looking I guess, with the leggings and the motocycle boots.  However I think I totally ruined it with that Anthropologie sweater.

Ehh… oh well.  I’ve always been more of a gothic romantic type of dresser when liquid leggings and lace and black are involved.   I know I’ve mentioned it before but I had a serious goth streak in high school :)  One of my friends recently posted this about idolizing Morticia Addams as a child.  I was totally Morticia Addams for Halloween once when I was younger.  My great aunt made the dress and it was sparkly and spectacular, and one of these days I’ll dig up the photos.

Here’s to hoping this week’s outfits are a bit more sparkly and spectacular!  I almost didn’t post this set and I think everything I wore last week was spectacularly unspectacular.  I’m not posting some of others but those actually didn’t come out, I swear.  Photos after 5 pm on cloudy snowy days = definitely not advisable!

Love, Alex

    Totally get what you’re saying about pics in cloudy weather. We’ve had rain/snow/clouds for the past few days, so I’ve had absolutely no good pictures lately. Oh, well.

    Gothic is the perfect way to describe this look. But Gothic in a good, fashionable way – it’s pretty hard to go wrong with amazing liquid leggings!

    I love how the cardigan looks with the skirt, it almost seems to merge into a dress.
    With the lens flare, try to position yourself so you are directly infront of the sun, thus blocking it out, then, let a tiny bit to shine through.

    Also, I know this is still a wip, but any chance of a mobile version?

      Your wish is my command! Totally forgot about mobile, thanks for reminding me! The site is now mobile although you have to click twice to actually see the post… kind of annoying, I’m going to try to work on something better.
      Will definitely try positioning myself with less sun next time! Sometimes taking photos of yourself can be such a challenge :P
