Not a Poser

Day Nine

What:
Blouse- Self Made
Belt- Thrifted
Jeans- Gap
Boots- BCBG


Ok I realize these pictures look like I'm trying to pose all model like, but in reality it was super windy out, so I was constantly moving my hair away from my face.
I usually like to wear a lot of colour, but every now and then I like the simplicity of black and white.
I wish it would show better in these pictures, but  I made the neck and sleeve band on this blouse from some black faux leather (left over from these leggings)...I love the contrast of the "tough" pleather with the sheer dainty polka dot fabric.

Wow, that top is simply gorgeous. I love the floaty fabric and the print. And those boots are amazing.

I said it last time too, but I love that blouse. I didn't realize Is had the faux leather bands. Love it even more.

I love the simplicity of this look! Its very polished! And I'm still in love with these boots! I wish I had your toothpick legs, and perfect feet so I could steal them!

You always impress me with the clothes you make - they're honestly better than the store-bought ones you wear. Did you make your own wedding dress?

I'm definitely still in love with the blouse.

As for the windy poses. Don't apologize, lady. You gotta own that sexy self. It's something that I tell women in my tango classes all the time - one of the biggest challenges and scariest things to do is allow ourselves to be sexy. But once you let go of that hang-up, there's nothing that could be MORE natural, and LESS poser-y than allowing that to confidently shine through.

You're beautiful. Own it.

exoh,
Elizabeth
