Launching Point





My boyfriend insists that getting outside will be helpful in getting me on the road to recovery and so I took myself upstairs for an outfit shoot and some fresh air. It appears as though in these shots I'm launching myself around the place but I can assure you the movements are quite slow (they have to be, my head is thumping). The idea is to put yourself into position and lift ever so slightly just as the shot is being taken to give the impression of movement. Pretty easy once you get the hang of it.
I love this outfit because its so slouchy and comfortable. A few days ago I gave myself a $100 challenge to find an outfit at Kmart and the result included these men's jeans and this baggy tee, among other things. I really should have documented my endeavor for my blog but it was really a spur of the moment idea and I didn't bring my camera.

this jacket is seriously perfect.

your challenge sounds like such a blasty- and zanita you could wear a paper bag and still shine + glow like no other!

Yay the new studded jacket it is as awesome as i imagined it would be! how did u spend $100 at kmart only on clothes? u must have been either extremely lucky or in need of basics :D or did u buy some insanely cheap shoes?

Love the jacket! And those mens jeans look really good on you. I love love LOVE the second photo, I think I've tried the whole "last-minute-movement" idea, but I'm not very good at it, haha. Too uncoordinated.

I do believe this is your best fashion set. The poses (especially the first two) are perfect! I'm still trying to wrap my mind around the looking-like-you're-really-jumping-without-actually-jumping bit. Mm, good ol' trade secrets. :P
