CONFIDENCE CAN LOGO

hilariously not a fashion blogger.

hilariously not a fashion blogger.

first off, i am faboosh, whether the camera tells me that or not.  (a little confidence can, if you will). 🙂

this is a dark mistake of a picture of my living room.  it is just the tip of the iceberg that will blow your mind about the upcoming "fashion" post.

but

um…how do fashion bloggers do it? there is a super popular series, well, i’m sure that there are many, many series devoted to this, but i know of what i wore wednesday, by the pleated poppy.

okay. i am not a fashion blogger. in fact, i am not what anyone may call fashionable (at least to the point that someone would ever wear what i wear together, as i wear it). but, instead of cleaning the fridge, grocery shopping, and cleaning my car, i thought i might try something different on this little space. for laughs, if you will.

now, in order to get a good look at what a fashion post is supposed to look like, i suggest my favorites here:

casey from the wiegands

lindsey from the pleated poppy

elsie & emma from a beautiful mess

mary from trusty chucks

carly from this is my story

okay, so do you see a pattern? they all look faboosh, they all have the “i’m cool, without trying to look cool” looks down, they inspire you to dress a little more put together.

umm, thanks instagram for editing out my sweaty, uneven makeup-ed forehead...oh wait...

here are my takes:

(also, let it be known that i actually attempted to take some with my digital camera, and a leftover tripod from one of ar’s old christmas gifts a few years back, and then the camera died. and i have NO idea where the cables are to recharge it – this is already turning out great for a fashion shoot).

maybe if i make a funny face, no one will notice that i don't know what i'm doing?

and next up, we have the accessories “close up” shot, that so many before me have perfected:

a little too dark, and also, my hand looks like a limp duck neck.

a little too dark, and also, my hand looks like a plump, weird duck or something.

and next up, we have the “look at my pedicure/manicure that is so cute!” shot that i failed on epic proportions at:

one foot wonder.

one foot wonder.

and then, both feet:

please do not pay close attention to the details of this pedicure.  a 3 year old could have done a better job.

please do not pay close attention to the details of this pedicure. a 3 year old could have done a better job.

and then, you will not even know how to contain your jealousy at the next shot…

wait for it…

ready???

i like to call this one fashion dancer.

there were a few that i liked, but, alas, i am not a fashion blogger, unless wrists are what you are after:

boom. blew. your. mind.

boom. blew. your. mind.

so all in all, i think i will leave it to the pros, and just keep using pictures of other people, and nature. and gus the guinea pig.  because i am not afraid to say i am bad at something.

fashion blogging is something i am bad at. also, please don’t take this as me making fun of people that can do these.  i am jealous, and also want folks out there to know that the ones that look awesome, who have rad edited photos, and can look cute while doing it all?  kudos to you, and this stuff is hard, and takes so much time!!! my headband is off to you.

have a lovely day my friends, and i hope this post at least made you laugh. ps. my watch is from tarjay. it is this one.

  1. This made me laugh so much. Especially when it looked like you only had one leg and I giggled because I imagined you had a peg leg. And that’s not funny, BUT IT IS at the same time.

  2. You are so cute and so silly 🙂 I love this. And keep doing it, you’ll start to feel less and less dumb. Haha. I still do though . Hee hee
