Note: This might be my last post before Christmas day, I'll be posting normal again after a few days later after the 25/26 th of December.
First off, I'm finally getting the usage out of my tweed blazer! I mentioned it in one of my blog posts a while ago. Its pretty nice when you get the use out of an item you've bought but not used very often. Pretty much feel great also since I'm getting more usage out of it actually, a nice addition to my autumn/winter staples very much.
Did you notice that my photo is not indoors. Sadly (the truth) this isn't going to every outfit post, because I don't have the luxury of living near town which has cool locations like this. But good news is I did find a nice spot near me (but sadly its indoors, haha!). How fantastic is that? I'll probably do this (by this I mean the outfit breakdown posts) from now on because I have a generous amount of time over the holidays. Would be nice to pre plan photos (well every blogger does it like, I wish we can do it on the same day & then post it ASAP but no. Some can but for others no.). Thanks to my patient friend who took this less than 10 shots (lol)! Still a bit annoyed that I forgot to put the proper settings on it so it is grainy in some parts of the photo. Oh well. Practice makes perfect. Or at least I should remember to put the proper settings next time. Same with my limited posing. Really feels weird posing in front of the camera again since I haven't done any outfit posts in quite a long time.
Going on to the outfit, I was inspired by the heritage trend on numerous lookbooks that I've seen in some designer collections of the current A/W 2012. No designer in particular. My point is more on the color palette. To be honest I'm quite impressed on my color palette in this outfit. Five colors going at the same time! Not really impressive to some but to me it is since this is probably the most vibrant outfit I have to date. Yes it isn't that vibrant but regarding to the colors it is for me. But it has more of a cool tone to it. So it isn't too painful to the eye. Also it has both the colors mixing in altogether & the textures like tweed, cotton, denim, wool, leather & acrylic so its more than meets the eye even if the overall styling is simple.
