a tongue in cheek guide to fashion blogger posing.

"A ongue in cheek guide to fashion blogger poses?" I hear you gasp? I know, i know, don't mention it.

Taking some snaps of my new outfits was on the agenda and i thought this could be a fun spin on things. Because you know, you need to know these moves in order to forge ahead in life.

Be sure to mention your knowledge of these moves in your college application, because they're not after evidence of extra curricular activities these days, it's all about the strength of your fashion blogger pose. Still don't believe me? Just look to Napoleon Dynamite; he knows the importance of some solid moves.

new items listed: oversized blazer, white tee, print skirt.
[three+in+one.jpg]
aa acid wash tee, floral playsuit, mens leather shoes.
[be+silly.jpg]
black body con lace dress.
[3in+one.jpg]
pale yellow knit cardigan.
[nice+sit+down.jpg]
baggy lace top worn with old high waist skirt.

discalimer: just to clarify, i love my fellow fashion bloggers, this is no piss take, just a satirical guide.

I love this, haha! My boyfriend always gets annoyed when he sees picture of people looking at their feet, so although I love the "just seeing your shoes for the first time" pose, I don't think he would!

My fave are the silly faces, I am a master of those.

I just stumbled across your blog while searching for things on Isabel Marant, and I love this post. I was particularly fond of 'the hunch' aka 'i may have just soiled myself...'. Genius! While I've tried almost all of them, I usually end up looking like a total tool. Must. Try. Harder. Ha.
