As you may or may not have seen, I was asked to model a few outfits last month (here, here, here, and here). You also may or may not have seen my bloopers posts from the first three of those four outfits (here, here and here).
To me, the whole point of a fashion blog is to post beautiful, magazine quality photos of perfect outfits but there's just so much more to it than point, shoot, and post. After a whole day of shooting, primping, adjusting, re-primping, re-adjusting, crying.. the 500+ photos are whittled down to a measly 5-10 useable images that even then are hugely edited to hide the hideous way your face contorts naturally. Right, guys? RIGHT?! No, just me? Well shit.
At the very least, I got to dress up in pretty outfits and pretend to be cool for a day. Shooting was fun (to a point), but scrolling through the hilarious fails was even more fun. I truly hope you've had fun laughing along with me throughout this series, and I really feel that I'm finishing off strong with this set of photoshoot bloopers from my final outfit post, Summer Vibes:
Did I mention that I have zero balance? Combine that with the standard "crossed ankles" pose and you're going to have a bad time.
The ol' Marilyn Munroe dress blow-up.. Except not even close.
Did you know that sea spray fucking stings when it gets in your eyes? 'cause I do..
Hence the face of pure disgust.
Here's a fun fact: I
don't can't do close-ups. For reasons clearly demonstrated below.. I'll just leave these here.
For the 10,000th time in this series: Christie does not like wind..
Say it with me!
and with that, I conclude this series by taking my hat off to you, proper fashion bloggers.
The guys who make their living off this shit. Who provide beautiful content several times a week.. In just one day, I learnt how dangerous, infuriating, time consuming, unpredictable and embarrassing this profession can be. I have a new-found, undying respect for you lot.
Touché to you all, touché.
