Ruffled shoulders are so much better than ruffled feathers…LOL, I’m just saying. We had no ruffled feathers at this fun photo shoot. At every shoot me and my talented photographer aim to have fun times in between the cheesing, posing, and multiple wardrobe changes! This playful dress from Eloquii definitely brought out my fun side. Take a peek…
Vacation immediately came to mind when I saw this striped dress. Perfect for shopping or sightseeing. It is so simple in a lightweight fabric and features a big off-the-shoulder ruffle. No other frills, easy dressing. I paired it with a pair of novelty socks (sim) and lace sneakers (sim).
But back to the fun, sharing some of the outtakes from this last shoot. Things generally go smoothly but she always catches me about to fall, commenting on every insect in a 50 yard radius (I hate bugs) or making a crazy face. The outtakes are really some of my favorite shots. All the pictures we take do not make it the cut! But we always end up with plenty of photo options for the Wednesday OOTD postings.
But with any OOTD, there is room for improvement. Let’s take a second look at this OOTD.
We talked about fit last OOTD. This dress was too big, too long, and had ill fitting shoulder straps (this walking is paying off). When you are 5 feet tall, a lot of your clothing choices will require some alterations. But regardless of your size or height, it is a good idea to get to know a good seamstress to do basic alterations, which should cost less than $50 for each. Now, you should consider the cost of the item vs. the cost of alterations. Let’s say you find a nice pair of pants for $50, but they are too long. If a seamstress charges $15 to hem the pants, your $50 purchase now looks like a $100 pair of expensive pants with the professional tailoring. Well worth the money. With a few alterations, this dress will be perfect!
Do you use tailor or seamstress?
