Soft Focus

Self-shooting is hard. Sometimes, for whatever reason, it just doesn't come together like you hoped it would. This is one of those times... I struggled with the exposure and focus on all these images, but I'm taking comfort in the fact that in the 1950s all the images of actresses were in shot in soft focus, on purpose. It was considered flattering. Today people expect more and more of the images they consume. Well... here's hoping you find this nostalgic and not annoying...

I've been investigating and investing in more and more tall clothing recently. This super snuggly cardigan is from New Look's Tall range (via ASOS). Unfortunately it came out a little oddly coloured in each image - the close up (5th image down) gives a more accurate idea of the colour and material.

But the tall item I love most at the moment has to be my long length skinny jeans from M&S (the unsung hero of many an outfit of mine). In addition to being tall, I'm also pear shaped - so finding a pair of jeans that fits both my waist and my hips is a tricky business... somewhat like self shooting...

This is my unimpressed face (after seeing the last image)


And this is my 'well this clearly isn't working' face.



















Black Top (worn underneath): F&F 
Skinny Jeans/Jeggings: M&S

P.S. If like me you find yourself struggling with your camera, I've done a bit of research now and would recommend having a read of Elizabeth's Tips over on Delightfully Tacky.
