Investments

Floral Top: Wet Seal // Shirt: Garage // Jeans: Uniqlo // Boots: Spring // Scarf: An Outlet Store

After what seemed like forever, I finally bought a denim/chambray shirt that fit me well and within a price range that I thought was worth it for quality ($13 :D ). Generally, I invest in a lot more versatile and basic pieces because I know I'll wear them a lot. That explains the lack of prints I have in my closet because I find it so difficult to incorporate into outfits! On another note, guess how cold it was today where I live? It was around the 5°C area (41°F) in the morning. Time to pull out those thick knits! Where did autumn go?! Soon, I'll be putting on my winter jacket before November even comes.

I have been thinking of investing in a better camera. The digital compact cameras aren't cutting it for me anymore. I'm not sure I want a big DSLR though because it's hard to carry to school, which is where I take most of my photos. Have any of you had experiences with the mirrorless cameras? They are the ones that have "DSLR quality" but are half the size. I tried looking into them and I've heard some good reviews on only a selected few. Are there any cameras that you can recommend?

There are so many things I still need to learn about photography. One thing I know for sure is that photo editing is not my forte. I'm still trying to get the jist of editing, how to angle the camera, how I should pose, what lighting is best, what the settings are on my camera, and of course how to pair outfits together better. My friends who help me take the photos aren't experts in the field either, so we're learning the processes together as we go!

  1. LOVE your boots and shirt! I recommend just buying a dslr (I bought the cheapest canon one but with lens for outfit photos and not the kit lens). I can fit mine into my bag so it actually isn't that heavy! Good luck on your camera search :)
