Shutter Style


Do you ever find shoes in your closet and go, “Why don’t I wear these more often?  These are cute!”  And then two hours into your day go, “Oh yeah…”

I’m doing that right now.  I remember that I bought these shoes for a very specific purpose:  To wear to Thor’s baby dedication. 

Two things I learned from that day.  One, never, ever, ever wear something that is going to be broadcast on a church plasmatron without taking a photo of yourself in it first.  Holy post-pregnancy body in shiny stretch lace, Batman!  And never, ever, ever wear something that is going to be broadcast on a church plasmatron without taking a photo of yourself in it first.  Yes, I know I have repeated myself.  The lesson was so important, I learned it twice.  No, five times.  Once from every bad angle.

I do recommend taking pictures of outfits.  You’d be surprised how different an outfit looks on camera.  Like that adorable green top I wore to Leslieann’s bridal luncheon?  In person, extra adorable.  In the photos?  Oh my word.  So many kinds of wrong I won’t even bore you with all of them.

When taking the pictures, you’ll want four.  One from the front, one profile, one backside, and one seated-profile.  You want to make sure nothing weird is happening when you sit down. 

ALWAYS sit down in the dressing room when you are trying something on.  I cannot understand how actresses go on talk shows in skirts that are so short they keep yanking them down self-consciously throughout their interviews.  Did they not have to sit down in the greenroom?  Seriously, Tina Fey.  I love you more than cheese, but I couldn’t pay attention to what you were saying for worrying about the dress you kept tugging on the last time you sat on Letterman’s stage.
