Leather and Vintage Studs

Dearest Third Cousin,

In my mission to expand my accessory collection, I came across this fantastic belt in Turquoise Flamingo. It's  so much fun to wear. I have also been meaning to blog about this skirt for ages. It was unearthed in one of many well stocked charity shops in Cork and it fits like a glove.

The quest part one.

Dearest Third Cousin,

This is the tale of two bloggers quest for "the" outfit shot. While our journey is far from over we have made many advances in out battle against unflattering poses and dodgy lighting.

1. Casually bend your knee whilst leaning against strategically graffitied wall. 

2. Praise the wall. After all it has just made you look really cool. 

3. Put on an "I am deep in thought" face and pretend the camera isn't there. It a great way to show off your new nail colour. 

While the lessons above have been learned the hard way. I shall leave you with this advice if all else fails hand your camera to the first person who offers and pose with a friend for them. The quest continues but if last night proved anything it was that "the" outfit shot will be a lot of fun to find. 

" 4. Work the classic bathroom pose?"
