Like A Grain Of Diamond Dust, You Float Away . . .


Today's OOTD was inspired by the fictional character Serena van der Woodsen from Gossip Girl. Yes, I've been rewatching the old seasons lately because, to be honest, the new TV shows nowadays simply don't give me any form of fashion inspiration the way Gossip Girl used to. 

One of Serena's closet staples throughout the whole series was a striped cardigan, and she's also been known to frequently wear earth-toned accessories. Sequins and sparkles were also amongst her favorites. What do you think of my OOTD? I hope I did her character justice.




In the middle of doing this photoshoot, my photographer and I were approached by a guy who noticed what we were doing. He ended up giving me some valuable tips on smizing and posing from H to T. One of his advice to me was to relax my mouth whenever I pose, because for some reason I always end up doing this pouty expression. I'm sorry that I didn't quite catch his name but if you're reading this, thank you so much for the tips you gave me! I really learned from them and will be practicing my poses with your suggestions in mind. I always love meeting new people even if just for a brief moment, so again, thank you! :)

Incidentally, what do you guys think of my blog's new design and layout? Would love to hear your thoughts! More improvements are on their way and I'm happy to say that it's only on and upwards from here! :)
