Lift Me Up

It's always a challenge to find a (for lack of a better word) interesting location to shoot your outfit; it's even more of a challenge when the setting is a confined space. Exhibit A, the lift. I'm no pioneer to these pose-in-elevator shots; heck, it's probably so overdone the mere thought of trying to revamp it is futile. But since it's never been featured here on "yours fashionably", why not give it a shot? Though I must admit, after 15 minutes of trying to vary the poses and angles within a badly lit metal box did make me feel kind of claustrophobic, but then again being "in-the-closet" for so many years didn't seem to induce that many panic attacks so I reckon I can handle this. The worst part was having to listen to the unholy repetition of "Doors Opening, Doors Closing" while the elevator door kept shutting every two seconds. As long as my neighbors never discover it was me behind the random mid-day lift-hogging, I think I'm safe to do it again, when they least expect it.

  5. wait, did you do this on some public lift? wow that must be super challenging, I first thought you went up and down and open and all over again, tho the first picture is just perfect, you look chic and just awesome, loving your eye bracelets and your pants, and that bag <3<3.

    1. Not exactly public, but that would be fun for next time... Especially if I include random people in the photos while I just continue posing and completely ignoring them (or use them as props).

  6. Well, at least you forced your neighbors to learn the virtue of patience, haha.
    Love the trousers and coat. You look amazing!

  14. Nice crotch shot :) Also, did you adjust the colours in these shots? I would have thought that the horrible lift light would make the colours look really weird, but the shots are great!

    1. Yay! I love a good crotch shot, it really pulls focus. Yeah I had to enhance the colors and up the exposure because the actual photos were too dim, even on a low shutter speed.

    The outfit is great, though those shoes are definitely not my cup of tea, but I loooove the pants (I want them for myself!) and your coat. Your writing styling is amazing as well, I laughed reading about your elevator adventure!

  46. thank you for commenting onmy blog- your fantastic! I absolutly love your style of dress and the way you write. Knee high c=socks are fantastic- i dont understand how something that has less coverage than tights feel a lot warmer.
    this photoshoot is fantastic- it looks mega difficult to get right but the results are worth it (fingers crossed your neibours dont find out it was you hogging the lift). cannot wait to see what you do next- folloowing you now

  50. love your style, love your look,
    and I especially love your pants and those heels!!!!!
    YOu are so very stylish and chic!

    I'm an american guy traveling in Europe this fall, and I have 13 years in ballet, and a love for fashion.......
    Growing up, I used to wear tights with sweaters all the time as a comfy alternate. Your progressive androgynous look reminds me of all those days....epsecially when the delivery man would come and I'd meet him at the door and he's refer to me as Miss......
    I've been raving to my new friends about how much I love the tights/shorts look, so they encouraged me to try it myself...
    and I have in a big way,..... denim cutoffs, high waisted shorts, even a romper.......
    I will following your blog religiously..... thanks for sharing your lovely taste
