Editorial fashion has always been a source of my inspiration, its raw, a fantasy and triggers passion. Since I was a little girl I was always in awe at high fashion ads in Vogue, every look was more impressive than the next. The reality is we’re not all walking around in editorial fashion 24/7 – we’re human. Who doesn’t love a good pair of loungewear or to throw on jeans and a tee? Every now and then I become inspired to get dressed up. Where am I going in these outfits?
Probably to go pick up a pizza.
I have to acknowledge the time that we are all in right now as I type this blog post out. Most of us are stuck at home for an unknown amount of time unless you are an essential worker. My anxiety and depression are really taking over my hours more than I’d like to admit. And when I need an escape I come here to create content.
This organza shirt dress really inspired me when I saw it, immediately I started pinning editorial style poses and forming a full story in my head of this dress. As much as that didn’t go as planned and I was unable to get my favorite SoHo backdrop, I had to make due. So what I’m posing on the deck of my pool in an organza shirt dress? I saw the beautiful blue sky and I knew I had to seize the moment.
My anxiety and depression suddenly disappeared and my desire to take photos in the backyard was on a time crunch. If I have learned anything about photography is that lighting is key, and so is timing. I knew I had a small window to quickly do my makeup, steam this dress and get the hell outside with a tripod.
I styled this dress with none other than my Doc Martens 1460s. This brought my grunge style to this fun organza dress. I love how I’m able to accentuate my waist with the tie waist. Given that I have a “pear shape” body, I’ve learned how important it is to focus on parts of my body that compliment my shape. And of course, wearing darker colors helps 😉
As for my makeup look, I wanted to make my eyes pop by smudging out my liner with Urban Decay’s 24/7 Glide on pencil in perversion. I also used Jaclyn Hill x Morphe Volume I palette on my eyes, it really is my go-to palette for a neutral eye look. I mixed HYPNÔSE DRAMA Instant Full Body Volume Mascara and Charlotte Tilbury Legendary Lashes Volume 2 Mascara like Kim Kardashian said she does. And lastly, for my lips I used KKW Beauty 90’s icon lip liner and Pat Mcgrath LuxeTrance Lipstick in Realness.
I’ve always kept my accessories simple and this time I went with these Bauble Bar Safety Pin Earrings. These are my nicer fashion styled earrings compared to shoving a safety pin in my ear in highschool.
For being quarantined, I’m pretty happy with these “editorial” posed photos.
