Inspired Outfit

Today, because I was very bored, I decided to piece together an “inspired” outfit. An inspired outfit is basically a look that someone or someTHING inspired me to make!

I just watched “My Week With Marilyn.” Marilyn Monroe is such a classic beauty icon, and wore a lot of gorgeous things. (Short review on the movie: The actress played her extremely well! Check it out when you have the chance!:} )

So, first off, I chose a swimsuit, not a dress, for a more beachy look.

It’s the “Magicsuit Solid Gabby One-Piece Swimsuit” from Soma.  It just has that vintage pin-up feel, and reminds me a lot of one that Marilyn wore! Marilyn+Monroe+black+bathing+suit

Next, I picked out some high heels! It’s all about the shoes, ladies!

Who could rock heels with a swimsuit? Marilyn could!Image

I know everything looks very “basic black”, but Marilyn was the epitome of classic. These are the “High Heel Platform Pumps” from Peltz Shoes.

And last, I chose a pair of black, vintage cat-eye sunglasses from RetroCitySunglasses.   Image

Add some red lipstick, and that’s the cherry on top of a fabulous outfit. ❤

(I like to use MAC’s “MAC Red”.)

Hopefully this outfit wasn’t too boring for you guys!

How To Look Good in Pictures

Hi my adorables!

Have you ever looked back at super-old pics of yourself and CRINGED? Wondered what the heck you were thinking back then? Wanted to just wipe out those embarrassing year-books? Yeah, me too.

Want to know how to look good in pictures? Of course you do! Here’s my life-saving information:

Step 1: 

If you’re at a place where you KNOW people will be snapping pics left and right, wear a little makeup to conceal flaws and put the oil-slick skin at bay. You don’t have to wear a lot, just enough to look like you, but enhanced and confident. nomakeup-look

Step 2: 

Wear some clothes that make you feel attractive and comfy!! If you’re wearing a too-tight, white dress that pinches in all the wrong places, chances are you won’t look, or feel, so good. (That is, unless you’re a Victoria’s Secret angel.)

Wear something appropriate for the event, that goes with you’re body type and coloring. This will get rid of all worries about clothing problems!

Step 3: 

Well, your facial expression usually plays a big part in how your photo turns out. If you’re having a good time, put on your best, genuine smile. In my opinion, everyone on this whole wide Earth looks better when they smile. Instead of ducking under a table, angle your face towards the camera and smile like you’re meeting a close friend. Or, make a funny-face! Have fun! It IS just a photo, after all.

Anyway, photos are photos. But, I hope these tips were somewhat-helpful, because these are things that I use all the time when I’m around cameras. Of course, you probably won’t look like Marilyn Monroe, OR a Victoria’s Secret angel, but you’re not supposed to! You’re unique. And you’re beautiful! When you look in the mirror, you can know that no one else looks like you, and that makes you special.
