Seeing Is Believing

May 28th, 2012 by Selise


This was one of those outfits that look much better in person. 2 dimensions just can’t do it justice.



I dubbed it my “Flashdance Meets 80’s LA Mystic” look. But you’d probably have to be a mystic to guess why from these pictures. In person I’m sure you would snap your fingers and say, “Oh! Of course!”



That is, if you’re the kind to snap your fingers. And my mystic powers are saying you…aren’t? Are! Yes, of course, that’s what I meant to say.

    I totally know what you mean! So many of my outfits just look better in person, I can’t explain it. It can be so very hard to capture the Exact look you want in pictures. Clothes look different when you see someone moving in them. Awesome grunge look here!!!

    I feel the same way with some of my outfits. It is so tough taking good photos of them some times.

    Your boots are perfect!

    I really love your glasses! πŸ™‚

  8. I love the seams on your shirt! I always get bummed when I take photos of an outfit and it just looks bleh. Or the lighting doesn’t do it justice. :/ I can tell this outfit is badass, though. Especially with the checkered print and boots. πŸ˜‰

    I have yet to see flashdance, aha. But love this outfit.

    Btw, is this a new blog layout? I’m pretty sure it is unless I’m imagining it.
