The evolution of my fashion posts

Doing fashion posts are amongst my favourite posts for this blog. I don't consider myself a fashion blogger (ha, have you seen me pose?), but like most girls, I enjoy pretty clothes and it is fun to goof around in front of the camera.
Once in a while I get nostalgic and read back on old posts of mine. It may seem strange (or maybe not?), but I like to read my own blog. It's also nice to see how things have changed between then and now - has there been progress? Are the old problems gone? How much has my hair grown?

Looking back at my first attempts at fashion posts was so hilarious to me, that I thought I share them with you here.

Did you notice a difference on those last 4 pictures? The quality of my photos is suddenly better! I treated myself to a new camera (Canon EOS Rebel SL1) during the boxing week sale, and even on automatic setting, the photos turn out so much nicer. I also bought a tripod (finally!), and that makes life a whole lot easier as well. No more propping the camera up on tree stumps and stacks of books!

As you can see, I'm a far cry from your typical fashion blogger. This is mainly due to my inability to pose, apply make-up properly and accessorize in inventive ways.
But somewhere along the way I found a method that works for me: having fun, including animals in the shots and not taking myself seriously. 
If you think you can't pull off the typical fashion photos, simply find a different way! Fashion should be fun, and there are as many different ways to approach it as there are people trying to do it. Break the mould, be unique, be you!

Love, Miriam

I'm on vacation right now, so it will take me longer than usual to reply to comments. Thanks for your patience!

  1. You have such an awesome style, I always enjoy seeing what outfits you'll put together! And I don't think there's any particular definition of a "fashion blogger" - I like that every pose is different and it's a great way to show off your personality. Love the fashion posts!!

    I think that is a load of rubbish! You are one of my favorite bloggers that do fashion posts exactly for that reason! You aren't the typical fashion blogger - good! You are unique and different from the norm and that's what fashion should be all about!!

    Ps. It's funny how my favorite photos of the above all seem to have certain furry friends in them :P

  5. This is the first post of yours that I am reading and I love it. I like your poses and they are really fun, not the typical ones. I like your sense of dressing. From the first collage, I like all of your dresses. And then I LOVE the way the second picture is captured in the ninth collage. Like you are embarking on a long journey. I want someone to take my picture like that. Also, do you have German shepherd? The white ones? I love dogs and cats and all the animals. OMG I JUST SAW A SNAPSHOT OF BLACK PANTHER THERE. Let me see, because I of all the animals I love, I love black panthers the most. Happy holidays. X

  6. I love to see the evolution of posts as we grow up in the blogging world. Your photos are always great.

    I definitely need a tripod. That would make things much easier....
