Have you ever been out shopping and came across the utterly perfect dress? I was shopping at Forever 21 a few weeks ago looking for some cheap trends, and I came across this gorgeous white maxi dress that might actually be “Lisa” in dress form: the lace, the off-white color, the laces on the bodice. I bought it immediately.
This outfit of the day post is a little different from my previous ones because they were shot by a professional photographer: my friend and former co-worker Alex Marcano, who is crazy talented. He had the idea to do a collaboration, and I jumped at the offer. Usually, a member of my family or a friend takes my photos, so it was a new experience for me to be photographed professionally. Of course, I picked my new perfect, favorite dress to wear for the occasion!
I hope you like these photos! I had a really fun time with my friend Alex, and in a couple days, you’ll get to see some incredible photographs from his professional portfolio.
This dress is what I love about personal style: that a piece of clothing has the ability to make you feel pretty, confident, and like yourself. This dress is so my personality, and throwing it on immediately makes me feel like I’m expressing myself perfectly. I think that’s why I love fashion so much: you don’t have to struggle to express yourself if you can communicate it through clothes. It’s the way you show the world who you are, and clearly, I’m a romantic at heart, with more than a small affinity for anything old fashioned or anything that looks like Elizabeth Bennet may have worn it. 🙂
