This is my first post for the 30×30 remix challenge! I’ll be sharing a list of the items I picked sometime this week as well. For my first outfit, I was fairly lazy — as usual — and paired up a comfortable dress with a flower crown I got in May and hadn’t yet got around to wearing. I had the pleasure of working with Mary Katherine from The Evergreen Nest on Etsy — highly recommend you check out her shop if you like flower crowns or anything fairy-related! My bracelet was also made by an Etsy seller, Melissa of You Can Sparkle.
Back to this outfit, this is the first time I’ve shot a full-body outfit since around May; I’m a bit rusty. I really need to find a guinea pig to model for me so I can learn how to do this then transfer the info onto my mom (and use it myself once I’ve got a tripod. Oh, if only). But it was fun and an excellent start to the month to get going right away on all my projects.
I had the hardest time with two things: my glasses and my lack of anything resembling bold orange I could add to the bottom part of my outfit. I wouldn’t have gone out and got something even if I weren’t doing a challenge that specifically goes against that, but it still bothered me a bit. The glasses are the subtlest I’ve got because the rest — metal red, black plastic, round silver — clashed far more, but the lens glare on the photos is remarkable. Sometimes it works, like in this picture I took after I took the crown off, but mostly it makes me look like I’m wearing a pirate eye patch. The lighting — it was sunny midday; couldn’t get my mom to come shoot with me any earlier, but I didn’t want to put it off — didn’t help, though. Details to ponder.
Anyway! One outfit down, twenty-nine to go! Exciting.
