It's only going to get better from here on!

When I started this blog, I didn't think anyone would read it. 2 months and 42 followers later, I'm still astounded that all of you are interested in what I wear everyday, especially considering that I'm not as half as stylish as any of you! Thank you for reading :)

And most of all, thank you for putting up with my outfit photos - indoor photos with crap lighting and my face obscured by the camera and all the crap of the world in the background! If you've noticed, I've slowly started clearing up the background. And, my husband and I recently made two investments that will make the photos on this blog much better - a camera (a Nikon D3100) and a Gorilla pod. This means, or atleast it will once I get the hang of these purchases, that you will be able to see clearer photos of my outfits as well as my face. And once I work up the courage to set out all alone with my camera, you might even get some outdoor shoots!

Let me warn you though - I look pretty awful in photos. Whenever someone asks me to pose, I end up giving the most fake smile ever and ruining the photo. Oh and despite having huge eyes, I always squint and making them look tiny whenever I'm clicked. Don't believe me? Here is today's outfit photo.


Outfit breakdown
polo t shirt - benetton, india
sweater - esprit, lyon (last seen here)
jeans - pimkie, lyon (last seen here)
cuff - moa, lyon
earrings - india

I look so weird :D Get used to it though, because you are going to see a lot more of these photos!

P.S. Now that you can see my face, would you be interested in knowing what makeup I have on, if any?

Love the outfit & your simple makeup as well! I agree, a nice camera is a great investment & also motivates you to blog more, take more pics...

Hooray for new gear. I think it'll be great being able to 'see' you better. You'll get better at posing, and finding your groove. It takes time. I love your wrist cuff and bold color use. I think you're very pretty! I have large eyes and do the squinty thing too.

Speaking from experience the photos will only get easier & feel less awkward than this :)
The purple & yellow is great!

Anjali said...

You've got nothing to worry about you've got a beautiful smile. I for one would appreciate knowing your makeup secrets...I still consider myself a makeup novice.

Love the yellow sweater and purple color, great color combo!

Ki said...

Loren: I hope so! And thanks :)

Anjali: Aww thank you! :) And I'm not much of an expert myself, I just love doing up my eyes!

GenkiOriana said...

What a cool color combination! I love how bright colors look on you. I feel you on the posing for photos thing: I do not understand how to hold my arms for the life of me. ;)

Ki said...

Genki Oriana: Thanks :) and yeah, I don't know how to smile even, let alone where to keep my arms :P

Mia said...

Oh, I think you look perfectly nice and not awful at all! I'm a big fan of the mustard+purple, and even though I don't wear makeup myself, I'm interested to hear what you do!

Ki said...

Mia: Thank you! :) turns out, I love this combo too!
