A Little Neon: First Outfit Post!

Ok, I'm clearly new at this whole outfit post deal. I felt a bit uncomfortable with the neighbors walking by and staring at K and I wondering why we were taking pictures of me by my lonesome. But ok, we got over the weirdness and K finally took three somewhat decent shots (please excuse my awkward posing, the light reflection in the background, and the fact that the shoes aren't really showing.) We most certainly need more practice, but here we go... my first outfit post!
Wearing: Theory sweater, David Lerner leggings, DVF boots (old), Madewell necklace (old), Ippolita, Hermes,  By Boe bangles.

Thoughts or advise? I need some good pointers to look a little less nervous/awkward.

  1. Love this outfit Viv! I'm not an expert at this at all (not even a rookie) so don't really know if you should take my advice, but I guess that taking pics outside help, natural light is very flattering ;)

  8. That bright color looks wonderful on you! I could never wear it in the dead of winter. I have no advice on the pic thing, I am terrible with it myself. Looks great!

  16. You look great! I'm new to this as well, and it's always awkward having the neighbors catch you taking outfit photos. However, outside the lighting is so much better for photos! When it's not too cold, I drag my husband on our rooftop deck to take pictures because we are so high up that the neighbors can't see :)

  17. O you look great! I would agree outside may help with the lighting, but seriously don't worry everyone that looks at your blog already loves you and you just need to smile and enjoy the awkward few seconds and people looking at you. You can also shout out its for my blog? May be a new way to get some devoted readers?? xoxo

  22. LOVE this outfit! I really need to get some neon going on in my wardrobe!!
    What I like to do when taking outfit pics is to have whoever is taking my pic make me laugh... normally turns out cute..sometimes scary.. but give a more natural body language! I am no pro but it helps me a bit!!

  23. Just discovered your blog and love it. Love your outfit post as well, you look great. I'm not so keen on having my photo taken as you'll see in my latest post where I've taken to chopping my head off...hehe.

    You have a new follower sweetie!

  29. Viviana, in all honesty, you look great. I love the neon and the boots and I admire you for taking a stab at it. I only did it twice on my blog, the second time I told my husband not to take pics of my face! So trust me you're doing an awesome job. I read or saw somewhere that for good pics, you should angle your body as opposed to do a straight into the camera kind of thing. I haven't tried it but that's what I heard. I worked in TV and I still feel uncomfortable "posing." So kudos to you and looking forward to more of your posts! xo
