Romeo and Juliet Dress #2
I told Fedora how uncomfortable I've been taking photos in clothes and she gave me a couple of tips which I will now share with you. When taking photos one should:
- Stand up straight, thrust chest out (makes boobs appear bigger...okay, she didn't say that boob part)
- Turn to one side (makes everything look thinner)
- Put one foot in front of the other (see last paranthetical)
- And for that extra little vavoom, push front hip up in the air (not the back one - which I did - because that just gives you, as Fedora said, "the crotch shot"). This makes your waist look smaller, and who wouldn't want that?
Anyway, I didn't do any of that in this picture. However, I did wear my dress (here's a Similar One) with these cute over the knee boots, which I love (though they do remind me slightly of the ones that Julia Roberts wore in "Pretty Woman," so just be careful not to wear them with anything too hooker-ish). I also wore my favorite "blacksessories" - a watch and a belt (which cinches the waist better than Spanx!!!). As for the blazer, it's old. So here's the closest thing I could find to it.
