Rhesa & Ess - photo 1

This is a fun little shoot that Rhesa, my photographer and I did one lazy Saturday afternoon.  We both dressed in an LBD and a tie-up blouse – a combination that I rather like at the moment 🙂  I bought this blouse very recently for a cheap price.  I really should curb my tendency towards blouses… some day.  It works tie-up, open or closed.  The versatility is what keeps me coming back to this staple piece of clothing.  A new piece here and there and a bit of mixing and matching with the old and new, does wonders for your wardrobe.

I’d like to thank Rhesa for doing pretty much all of my photography since that first photo shoot so long ago!  Your photography just keeps getting better and better, Rhesa – I’m loving it.  If you guys could go and check out her blog – http://mybuttonodyssey.wordpress.com/, I would be very grateful.  You can continue to follow her photography journey as well as her hobbies and everyday doings.  Thanks Rhesa!

Enjoy these photos and the beautiful NZ scenery that accompanies them.  We had a good old time doing this together, as you’ll soon see.

I’m thinking of doing a bloopers post from the various shoots that we’ve done over the last year or so – just so that you guys realize I’m just as human as you… gosh, the stupid things I’ve done 😉  Ok, I’ll just tell you one recent embarrassing story.  I was at my friends party last night and I was having a lovely time playing guitar with a friend, when one of the other guests came over with some cheesecake.  It looked good, very good.  She was offering it, and I suddenly decided that I really, really wanted it.  Jumping up from my seat, I ran over to claim my small piece of dessert.  Then, as I was on my way, I tripped, flew past her, snatching up the cheesecake in the process and proceeded to land upon the ground on my backside with a large, “thump!”  Classy, hey?  But I got it!  Honestly guys, I really wanted that piece of cheesecake and it was fully worth it!  Yep, one of the many things that keeps my life funny and interesting. 😉

God bless you all this coming week.  Isn’t life beautiful?

Hi readers! Here is the next outfit from our mini photoshoot. If you’re anything like me, and you love vintage and feminine style, then I think you’ll like this outfit. I LOVE wearing dresses, as it makes me feel so feminine, and my brothers love it when I wear them too 🙂 However, it’s so difficult to find a warm dress in winter! Tunics work to a certain degree, but what I’m talking about, is a dress that you can wear with tights, where the hem isn’t closer to your waistline than to your knees, something that I can feel comfortable wearing without dying of cold. It was a long and hard search (when I actually did search for one) but my Mum and I finally did find one which looked lovely on! Here it is, here is my Little Black Dress.

The reason for wanting one of these? Here is a list:

  • They are so versatile, you can style them with shoes in autumn, boots and tights in winter, and sandals in the spring.
  • You can do so much with it! Put a blouse underneath, or a long-sleeve with a coat, chuck a scarf around your neck, or a statement piece of jewellery, wear a cardigan when it’s warm, or a coat when it’s not. The range of ideas is endless!
  • If you suit black, then an LBD is the way to go, because black practically goes with any colour.
  • Buy a warm dress, and you won’t have to suffer for fashion.

Ok, so those are a few reasons to buy one, my decision was based on those actually and also inspired by this blogger, who wore an LBD and styled it differently for 100 days to raise money for orphans in India I believe. By the end of last year, she reached her goal of raising $50,000. I really enjoyed watching how she styled the dress differently and perhaps that is when I realised how useful an LBD would be. (The link I have provided is a video that compiled all the 100 outfits together).

In this outfit, I wanted to bring across a rather vintage feel. I did this by employing the use of a long cream coat. I aboslutely love coats, especially the ones that reach to your knees! The image that I wanted to give was of a girl living way back, waiting for the train to arrive, holding her suitcase, all dressed up warmly to protect against the warm cold winters day. (Ha, here’s me wishin’ it was warm :-P)

Enjoy the photos and the use of another vintage prop. Rhesa and I also used a beautiful rose in these photos.

It was raining!  This helped… sorta.

Also, I have to give credit to Rhesa for helping me style this outfit, and yet again being our amazing photographer!

Enjoy what’s left of your weekend and for all you Kiwis out there, enjoy the hols!
