In many ways, dressing for Autumn and Winter is much easier than for Summer, in are the woolly tights and jumpers and out is the fake tan and the need to shave your legs! Hurrah!
Still, while dressing for the new season can feel less of a burden, it does require some thought; spending the season swamped in an oversized sweater, jeans and muted colours, can soon feel boring. Continue reading
Kizzy and I went on a lovely girlie shopping trip last weekend. We were excited to go to Shoe Zone with a £30 voucher to spend on some new shoes. The store had lots of styles on display including a huge range of boots for the Autumn. I decided that a pair of ankle boots was exactly what I needed to see me through the colder months and I was really impressed by the choice and the prices! While I tried on various styles of boots, Kizzy was trying on a selection of pumps and canvas footwear, in a variety of colours and patterns. They were excellent value starting at just £3.99 a pair.
As we stepped into the studio, arms laden with Christmas decorations, slippers and boots, the first request naturally had to be ‘can we have Christmas music on?’ If we were going to shoot Christmas publicity in August, we needed to set the mood!
With ‘Fairytale of New York’ playing in the background, we started our mission of set building, fabric draping, prop placing and most importantly shoe positioning. Things were taking shape nicely, but we were far from a finished shot at this point. We couldn’t put it off any longer as we pulled out the dreaded prop – a gingerbread garland! ‘Dreaded’ I hear you cry, how can a gingerbread garland be so bad? Well, suspending a fragile string of fabric men and love hearts between two metal poles and taping it into position with very attractive gaffer tape is the easy bit. Getting it into focus and in the shot successfully was quite another.
Check out this week’s blog spot from the lovely Laurenella again, we recently gifted these studded knee high riding boots to Lauren and we have to say it…..they look awesome with her outfit! Nicely paired with a turtle neck jumper for the colder days and a pale purple mini skirt – we love this casual trendy Autumn look!
