blue steel







Helena, me, and Kim.
(photos by Kim of Eat, Sleep, Wear and her boyfriend, Brian.)
 
Outfit Details:
jacket - H+M
gloves - c/o DKNY
striped sweater - J Crew (fyi mine was a little over $20 in store)
sheer button down - Threadsence
sequin shorts - Cynthia Rowley (super on sale at the boutique PLUS extra discount with foursquare check in! Thanks, Holly!)
tights - HUE
bag - c/o Coach
Hawk Wedges - c/o Seychelles
glasses - Ray-Ban
lipstick - Bobbi Brown Lip Color in Rose


When someone besides me (or maybe Bobby, Tessa or Kim) is taking my picture, I all of a sudden become the most awkward person on earth. My lip starts to twitch, my hands do really weird things and I can't remember how normal people stand or...breathe. Instead of Magnum or Blue Steel, I have two looks like to call my "har har" or "durrrr" faces. I also have this other one where I look angry as all get out. But that's just my normal face, so be cool.

I might not have a future in professional modeling or even professional "being a normal person" but goddangit, I'm halfway to being Marge Simpson's twin sister and that's almost as good (or maybe the opposite of that). I need a haircut, stat!

  3. Such a darling look! I almost bought the same H&M coat, but it didn't fit right. It looks perfect on you though! And those shorts are such a dazzling beauty, while the striped jumper is steal of a deal.

  7. You are too cute!
    I'm terribly awkward and fidgety the moment anyone raises a camera to me. It's so funny, because I hardcore pose it up with my remote or for my little brother. Aside from that, I forget how to smile or look normal with my eyes.

    ps: I'm so jealous that there are H&Ms nearby. I've never been to one before and, in TN, there isn't one in the state!!

  8. Still so super cute Keiko! I tune in because you're 100% real doll, leave the modeling to the pros and you just do yo' thang!

    Loving that steely bag...perfect title post too!

  26. Love your Coach bag!!!

    I definitely understand what you mean about photos. I feel so awkward and incapable of being normal. Add random people walking by to the mix and it's a giant uh oh disaster.

  33. Cute outfit. The same thing happens to me if someone other than my husband is taking my photos. I suddenly become so shy and forget how to pose in front of the camera. lol.

  34. Haha, when I have someone take my photo, I always think about George Bluth saying to Buster,
    "You were just a TURD out there! A TURD!"

    That's what I look like. A Turd.
    But you don't. :)

  36. I'm in love with your shorts. So cute. :) I love the way you layered this outfit. So girlish and classy. I understand about the pictures thing. But for me, I have to use my tripod or nothing else will work. I'm not a fan of people taking my picture. I just freeze up. haha.

  37. Ha! This made me laugh. ;) I love your explanation of what happens when a stranger takes the photo. Don't worry, people ask me ALL the time when I'm not smiling if I'm angry.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Wow seriously perfect timing about the photos (although you look great to me!) I just had my 3rd failed attempt at my first outfit pics with my bf... Just feel so damn awkward : / maybe I need to try a tripod/remote..
