Redo: Red Pants and Vintage Top

Okay guys – I feel like I wear these red pants CONSTANTLY, but the more I wear them, the more they mold to my body, and the more comfortably they fit! Plus, who knows how long (or short) this colored pants trend will last? I want to take full advantage of the trend before it’s considered to be old news.

I featured this same outfit a couple months ago, but I feel this time around I’ve improved. Plus, I’ve gained many new followers since then, who may not have seen the original post anyway. So, why is this outfit better, you ask? I’ll tell ya:

I caved, and bought some heels, despite the fact that for as long as I can remember, I’ve held an unspoken vow to never wear heels, except at formal events. This is partially because they can be painful, and partially because I feel self-conscious and conspicuous when I wear them. This self-consciousness is merely a result of my overactive imagination convincing me that everyone is staring at my feet thinking how ridiculous they look, when really they don’t give a crap. Sometimes I just don’t understand my brain.
In fact, I look about 10 pounds lighter when I put on these heels. WHO KNEW?! Combine that with really good posture, and I’ll never have to go to the gym again. I take that back… exercising is healthy, and I gotta be healthy!

Better photography. I changed my normal physical location, which changed the direction of the light, which actually makes a world of difference. Light is paramount to photography. Crappy light = crappy photo. If you’re a frugal person like me, use cheap white poster boards as light reflectors.

More liberated posing. The more I take pictures of myself, the more comfortable I become, and I’m starting to learn what angles and poses are the most flattering, or at least more fun.
