A few weeks ago Filipino photographer Edric came to Melbourne and we collaborated on a little photoshoot! He’s shot a lot of amazing people from LOOKBOOK.nu before including Tricia,Kryz, Mayo, Peter, & Bethany before heading down under for Australia :) Unfortunately my week that week was quite packed (more backlogged photos to come of what i ended up getting up to!) but we did manage to squeeze in a lovely morning shoot at a local public gardens. Edric was absolutely lovely and i think one of the most amazing things about being a blogger is being able to connect with other bloggers from different parts of the world which you would have never ever been able to meet before!
So here’s the first of the looks we shot. I’ve been trialling out a lipstick/blush called Lip2Cheek from REM @ Bathing Beauty. My heels are of a beautiful murky colour i can only describe as a mix between mustard and nude. They are superbly high but oh so superbly leather and comfortable and from Italian designer Fabi or (Facebook here). For this look i was going for a very vintage inspired Spring time picnic outfit (hence the straw suitcase bag which i can just see myself stuffing with picnic goodies) – i think Edric’s editing really reflected that mood as well! And of course, i don’t think i could ever say no to a nice collared dress and a bow somewhere in my outfit too. And i don’t think i need to say anything about my hat, i am in love with it but i’m sure you know!
Speaking of photos and all, last weekend my DSLR DIED!!! I cannot get over the sadness it has brought to me haha, basically a firmware issue which you can read about here. If any of you have Canon EOS 1000d cameras (the model i have) make sure you update your firmware asap (if you haven’t done so in the past two years.. personally i never knew we had to update firmware for our cameras.. haha) to avoid your camera dying on you :( I’m heading to the Canon repair centre today and they better fix my camera for free as promised in that press release two years ago or i’ll be back soon to mope about it!
