Hey guys! It's me, Zaira, and today my lovely best friend Venus graciously agreed to model an outfit for me, so I could get my first blog post up. I originally had my other friend Violet ready to model a very different outfit for this post, but she had a last-minute swim practice and wasn't able to come. Usually Venus would take the photos, but, well, as you can see that didn't work out this time! I took the photos myself, and I think next time I'll let Venus handle it and ask one of the other girls to model, because as you can probably tell from the photos I really don't know how to work V's fancy-shmancy DSLR camera! I think I'll let Venus handle the photos next time! iPhone photography is hard enough for me, thank you very much.
Anyway, here's the outfit. Most of the pieces are ones that came right out of Venus's closet. I made the shirt as a birthday present for her last year using some of my iron-on transfer paper, and we both thought this post might be a great place to show it off. The skirt is mine- I usually wear it with my Hogwarts shirt for a school-uniform kind of look, but it works well for the same look with Venus's outfit too. I'm pretty sure the socks originally belonged to Felicity- left them on the stairs, and, well, we kind of just took them! The boots are Venus's, and she ALWAYS wears them. I don't know if I've ever seen her without them, except when she's in her pajamas, of course!
Here you can see Venus's yellow satin hairbow. I found this in our new friend Madelynne's closet, you'll meet her in another post, hopefully soon! Madelynne has a great collection of hair things, and she very generously let me borrow this one for Venus's outfit.
Here is a look at V's hair. It was quite messy by the end of the photoshoot, I'm afraid, and unfortunately Saige, who did the hairstyle and is the bast at styling, was off to ballet and not available to fix it. But look how long Venus's hair is!
Anyway, hope you liked my first post! Next time hopefully Violet will be around to model, so I can let Venus take over her rightful job as photographer! And after Violet's post, you might not hear from me for a week or so because Madelynne, Venus, and I are travelling to Chicago for an 8th grade trip. Us girls are the only 8th graders at the Academy this year, so it should be fun. Maybe I'll take the pictures for Madelynne's fashion post while I'm there!
Until next time,
