How fun is this? I get the opportunity to publicly comment on my girlfriend’s outfit without any repercussions! For once I have a say, some control, and am no longer just the penny-pinching, behind-the-scenes, cameraman/boyfriend. I can give a male’s perspective on fashion, albeit a fairly uneducated one, but a male perspective nonetheless.
The best part of having control of Grace’s outfit shoots is getting to decide when to take pictures and of what outfit. Grace has been going crazy not knowing when she is going to be photographed, and it’s only been four days since she’s relinquished control to me. But that’s part of the fun. Any day, any outfit... it may be picture day!
Today was a picture day. Grace had this on, and I loved it:
Maxi Dress(as skirt) seen here-Gap, Belt-Express, Shirt-Old Navy
Notice the “skirt” Grace is wearing? If you look at the left side of the blog at Grace’s “Weardrobe” photo, you’ll notice that the dress she wore is the skirt in today’s photos. I like that creativity. If there’s one thing that Grace has taught me about fashion it’s that it’s not about the clothes you have, it’s about what you are able to do with them and how you wear them.
And speaking as a guy who is constantly on a budget (seriously, Grace is an expensive gal), I can appreciate taking one piece and using it in multiple, stylish outfits. There doesn’t have to a new outfit for every day of the week in order to stay fashionable. I’m sure all of you have a closet full of great clothes (that’s probably overwhelming your boyfriend’s side) - I challenge you to try something new, to take a risk, with something old, with something used. Create a “new-old” outfit the next time you’re in the mood to shop-till-you-drop. Save a few bucks and look good doing it.
So what do you think of my first post? Do you like the outfit I chose to photograph Grace in? Are you going to try to get creative with your wardrobe, if you haven’t already? And is it weird having a guy write about girl fashion??? Yeah, I thought so.
Until next outfit,
