Crazy Yellow Print Dress

Dress – Oxfam Online
Necklace – People Tree
Jacket – Swapped on
Belt – Swapped at Swap in the City
Boots – Dream in Green

The slightest whiff of spring weather andΒ  get the urge to wear the brightest and craziest prints I can find!

Today I decided to venture outside to take my photos and try some different settings on my camera. I got varying results but overall you can clearly see that the outside photos with natural light have turned out better. I was trying to achieve the kind of unfocused background but it didn’t quite work as well as I hoped perhaps partly because I was limited in how far I could get from the camera because I don’t have a tripod so was limited to where I could rest the camera and didn’t want to get my feet muddy by going on the grass. Will have to try again on a drier day!

In case you are interested, I recently wrote a post on Oxfam Fashion, My Top Ten Charity Shopping Tips, probably pretty obvious stuff for any seasoned charity shoppers, but maybe useful for those who don’t buy from charity shops and would like to give it a go. I promise you, it is great fun and you can find some amazing stuff!

I have also launched a new ethical fashion blog shop featuring some of my favourite brands. I would love to know what you think.

I hope you are having a lovely weekend and enjoying the sunshine.

With warmest wishes

  1. You look fab, that dress is stunning and I love the outdoor shots, too. I can see your pretty face much better now.
    Your tips on the Oxfam blog are great, not buying for the sake of it is something it look me a long time to learn! x

  2. I tried to take some photos outside this week too…I really struggled to get the light right, it was either too sunny or not bright enough – so frustrating! I ended up going back to my usual spot in the end, what a waste of time. This crazy yellow print dress, is crazy in just the right! I love it!

  3. The outdoor pics turned out really crisp, I prefer natural light as well for outfit photos, it makes a world of difference. Also like the red & yellow, not combination I’ve thought of, but it works really well πŸ™‚
