So I have a great number of outfits in my personal collection that I think you would like, but alas, I'm not one of those bloggers with

a) photographer boyfriend/significant other; or
b) a tripod

So I thought I'd just throw my clothes on the parquetry floor and see how it goes.  Kind of like DIY Polyvore, but much less classy and styled.  Welcome to my world of fashion. I realise that this is almost a fashion blogging faux par....

"WHAT!?!" I hear the purists scream -
"An outfit post with no-one actually in it????"

"Mwahhahahahaha"  I laugh in an evil-character-disney-style-way.

What can I say - I'm a rebel.  A big one.

Mink Pink blouse (the only designer outfit piece I own)
Thrifted cotton candy Harajuku skirt
Thrifted vintage wedges
Jewellery had for years - wood never goes out of style

So what do you think of my fashion post - result of pure laziness and being too cheap to get myself a decent tripod - feel free to spill your guts.

For the Love of Vintage
Love Lara & Tura xx

  1. i really like this post!
    even though you don't have a tripod or a photographer boyfriend it doesn't matter. the first shot is great, nice idea using the floor.
    now a follower :) xx

    share the love? aestheticjungle.blogspot.com

  2. how adorable is that dress?
    I too don't have a tripod or a photographer boyfriend, so I usually have my mom or a friend take my pictures (or a stack of books :P). I use the floor whenever I take pictures of individual pieces!

  3. LOVE LOVE LOVE. This is absolutely adorable. Love the soft, feminine colours and gorgeous layout!
    xx, Maria

  5. What? No photog bf/hubby or a tripod?!?! Unfollow!!...jokes jokes...The pics are still awesome:P

  6. The floor is actually kind of a nice background! But if you have a light fixture on the ceiling that hangs down at all, you can put it on a hanger. I did this to sell outfits on Ebay. There's also the "over-the-door" hanger trick, but it is hard to make it hang straight down and you have to take an angle shot. Or, if you get really ambitious, a lot of digicams have timer functions. All that said, you actually have an attractive floor, so that works too!

  7. Awww would love to see you on those though!! Any friend can be a good cameraman! :p



  8. thanks for visiting my blog :) and the outfit is lovely.. though it's not on you :p I usually just force my mom to take my pictures.. or get some friends to do it! Once, since I don't own a tripod either, I had to put my camera on furniture or whatever is high enough to take pictures..yeah, big fail.


  9. This is cute :) When I don't have my tripod I lean my camera on window sils and tables :P haha this is a much better alternative! Very cute ensemble!

  10. Love the outfit, love the floor lol =)

  11. I LOVE THIS!!
    1. my boyf isnt a photographer either ( where do they find all these talented ones???)
    2. the last time i took pics of myself in an outfit I piled up 3 sewing boxes and a makeup case just to get myself in the pic so i faaaar prefer your appoach!

  14. Beautiful outfit! I do this all the time when I'm feeling lazy and a lot of the time its difficult to get someone to take the photos, completing agree with you! Thankyou for you comment lovely xx


  15. The outfit is fantastic. Love the combination of colors and the accessories are great. Love to visit you here!!!

  16. The top is really pretty-and how gorgeous in the stain on your floor! You should do interior pictures as well!

  17. love the soft girliness of this outfit

  18. Ah it doesn't matter that you are not wearing outfits I don't think. I have to admit that I started my blog without wearing clothes too. You've assembled your outfit well; I like your shoes! A while ago, I invested in an 'octopus tripod' which retails for about $30, they are awesome, you plug your camera in (fits most) twist it around anything - chair, tree branches, whatever, and put on self timer.

  19. lovely post & great blog! :)

    thanks for the comment on my blog :)

  20. Who says you have to be in an outfit shot for it to be an outfit shot?! There's no written rulebook for fashion blogging! Yes rebel! ;)
    I love that top btw, I have a similar one in orange xoxo
