A Glitch in the Matrix:October 2009 Style


October 13, 2009 + DIY sleeveless coat

What’s great about taking photos of your outfits is that you get this sort of, inside look at how your outfit really looks – on you. Sometimes things you miss in person, staring at your reflection in the mirror, really stand out in photos. In fact, I almost think it’s essential in preparing for a special event or a prom or wedding, to take photos prior in different lighting to see just what works and what doesn’t. Also, some fabrics are completely transparent when a camera flash goes off, even black, and since there are cameras everywhere now, it’s best to be prepared with the right undergarments.

But what also comes from photographing oneself so often are the flaws {in yourself} that you were otherwise unaware of. Like my jawline, for instance {see the first photo}. I had no idea until I began blogging and photographing my outfits what my jawline looked like, and just how much I disliked the profile of it. Now, I’m NOT looking for compliments here, I promise, it’s just something I was unaware of then and COMPLETELY aware of now. So much so that I find myself paying attention to it on others, women AND men, and mostly while watching TV, not in real life. Do you notice that about yourself? I’m not trying to point out your flaws or anything, but we all have things we’d like to change. I think if it’s a specific thing like your knees or your nose, for instance, it’s the one thing you notice most on other people. You may admire knees and noses that you find pleasing. Since I don’t have a problem with my knees or my nose, I never pay attention to anyone’s knees or noses, but I could imagine if I did, I’d be checking out knees and noses all the time to see how mine measure up.

Not that I am in any way promoting vanity or promoting a ridiculous awareness of all of your flaws, but when you know your flaws, you can learn how to disguise them. Just like when you’re honest about your assets, you pull focus there so as to look your best and feel the most confident and put you best foot forward always.
