Cuffed Up Next Time

One thing I really like about blogging is that it is helping me get to know my body and style even more.  Many times you look in the mirror and everything seems fine, but then you look at the picture and it is bad news.  I am not talking about being photogenic, it is about little details that we chose to ignore and the cam cam shows you that maybe you shouldn’t.  For example, in this shoot I realized that the sandals I am wearing with the jeans make my legs look extra short, so either I should wear them with heels, or cuff up the pants.  My hair, I always have my hair messy, no fail.  Even when I try to make it nice I always end up putting it in a bun or something because I like it messy, I’ve never been the girly girly girl that has to have everything perfect-not me at all.  But the pictures show me that messy only looks cool in the mirror, so it is another detail I will try to focus on more.
 
I am wearing Forever 21 pants and shirt.  BCBGirl sandals, vintage necklace, the bag is a lucky find I got in Panama, and the jacket is Anthropologie.

Model Behavior

These pictures were taken the first time I went shooting for the blog.  I did not realize that being a fashion blogger also means you have to be a “model” and I am far from that, so I struggle throughout the process of being in front of the camera and having to edit my pictures.  I am very hard on myself and specially since I am not a Chiara Ferragni, or Amy Song who have loooong legs, perfect for fashion photography, I constantly look at their photos and compare them and it’s never good.  So try not to be too harsh on me lol.
 
Estas fotos fueron tomadas la primera vez que fui a tomar fotos para el blog.  No me imagine que ser un fashion blogger también implica ser “modelo” y yo para nada soy modelo, así que se mi dificulta todo el proceso, desde estar enfrente de la cámara hasta editar las fotos.  Me la paso comparándome a Chiara Ferragni, o Amiee Song, que tienen unas piernas largas, perfectas para fotos de fashion, y mis comparaciones nunca terminan bien, así que traten de no ser muy duros conmigo lol.
