I have never been very good at taking glamourous photos. Something a little crazy, yes! Something a little dark, yeah I guess so too! When it comes to taking photos of something glamourous, however, I personally feel I always find myself falling flat and not achieving the look I wanted. So recently, when I was passed this gorgeous dress and was asked if I'd like to become an official blogger for the store ImmateriA, I knew I couldn't say no but I also thought "argh crap, it's gorgeous how can I make myself look elegant!" My brain started whirring, I needed a plan of action and fast...
My plan of action became an image that reminded me of when I was little and I used to play dress up. OK so the photo is of an adult Rudh but the toys on the old chair definitely have my mind drifiting back to when I was little. The chair itself is a Rusted Crate Chair available from [N*11] at the Oh My Gacha event. I even, as I would have when I was younger, rested some cute toys in the form of a yumyums i-Lo bear and a cute Bunny Cafe Cup from Birdy - both of which are also available at Oh My Gacha too. Though I also couldn't resist using the new Nostalgia Jewelry Box from MishMish that you can pick up at the latest Collabor88 line-up.
Then it was on to the outfit itself, I knew just what to wear as the whole reason behind my panic was this gorgeously, classy, vintage style dress from ImmateriA - called Stregoni - in a pretty Azure colour but there are other colour combinations to choose from and each one comes with a long cigarette holder and gloves. I kept my accessories simple as I wanted the dress to take centre stage, and pulled on one of the deviousMind Lolita wristWraps in a storm colour design...
I think I managed to pull off glamourous? Maybe just this once?
