Wardrobe Post 2018

The years seem to go by faster and faster and once again it's wardrobe post season! As usual I've posted to EGL on LiveJournal, and clicking the image below will direct you to the full post.


I tried something new with this year's post and borrowed a dressmaker's dummy to do mannequin shots! However...I decided to cover it with fabric, which turned out to look kind of shoddy. And I made a terrible choice of background with the red velvet. And my focus and lighting is awful in some photos.

Which is a bummer, because I really wanted to top last year's post in terms of aesthetics/presentation and to my mind totally failed at that. But oh well. I still got to document where my wardrobe is right now, which is the main thing. And despite my whining about what isn't great overall I'm pleased to have done this again and objectively my photos aren't that bad lol.

The berry corner of my wardrobe...

I also experimented by doing a collage layout, which I am rather happy with. As my wardrobe gets larger having one item per photo would make the layout a bit ridiculous, and since I put all the things on the mannequin there is just one item per photo. So collaging was the natural choice and I think I made it a little bit cute. Could be a lot cuter, but still ^__^


And, speaking of doing things differently this year I actually photographed my jewellery (and coats)! My bracelet collection in particular is coming along nicely so I wanted to show it off.


On the subject of showing things off I couldn't not share my fawn fur photo directly to this blog! So proud of this corner of my wardrobe ^__^

Anyhoo, enough rambling, especially because there is even more rambling in the EGL post itself. I hope you enjoy looking at my wardrobe and I've certainly enjoyed sharing it! If you've done a wardrobe post yourself this year, please drop me a link in the comments because I love looking through wardrobes!

  1. I liked the red velvet background. It looks good and different, even if it might've messed up some things in photography terms, but as a total amateur, I can't tell that. :) And I'm glad you took the plunge to include photos of things you haven't previously, it shows off your style and personality that little bit more since now we know what sort of things you add (or not :P) to your flatlays, since not every piece gets included or is well visible on a flatlay. Even if on a personal level you feel like you failed, I really enjoyed scrolling through and reading your wardrobe post. :) Ok, better stop procrastinating and start photographing mine, since I already set everything else up :P

    1. I do like the background too, but in retrospect I think it's too much, too distracting.

      I'm glad you enjoyed it, and seeing the littler things as well!

      Can't wait to see yours as well ^__^
