Outfits

Ring ring! The good old days called

Post boxes near the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden

Covent Garden’s Phone Boxes

I was really happy when my friend Jumar Mundo (a guy I immediately clicked with as soon as he joined my team at ASOS, wide-eyed off a flight from his hometown in Australia) told me he’d gotten into photography. I was proud and knew he’d be great at it. I was even more happy when, a year or two later, he asked if we could shoot together one soon. It seemed an almost novel idea since my rare shoots, where I rope in Kristabel to snap me, have majorly dwindled. I planned what looks we’d shoot and then, last weekend, we went out to a couple of classic, ‘Blogger-bait’ locations in outfits I knew he’d love to photograph.

We had a blast trying to capture my skirt billowing as I pirouetted in the street. I probably offended the Royal Opera House and its bronze ballerina statue next to us, not to mention the patrons of Zizzi’s with my poor technique but I didn’t care. (Funnily enough, those shots never made his cut). I ordered him to get a lower angle every time he threw himself to the ground (his decision, not on my command!) to get the shot he envisioned. And, we laughed at the fact that every time he lifted his lens, the motion appeared to prompt tourists or pigeons to walk into our shot.

It was GREAT fun and looking back, it made me realise that this is what Blogging is all about. Having fun, hanging out with your friend, enjoying the clothes you’re wearing at the time and well, ‘chatting’ away in a blog post about what a great day you’d just had. It was like the old days.

Note to self: have more of those days.

    Aaah these are fab shots Lucy! I have a lovely group of blogger friends and it’s gorgeous when we get a day to do things like this. MUCH easier to get a decent shot from a blogger, who spends their time on Pinterest or IG than my husband — who doesn’t!! LOL!!

      Haha I know the feeling, my boyfriend tries but it’s just not the same!

    p.s. I’d be totally up for shooting together any time—I’d quite like to try outfit posts again, now and then :)

    This is such a cute post! I think you should definitely show this side to blogging more often! Of course, it’s a serious career for some, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be fun! The photos are beaut by the way!
    Bisous, Faz

      Thanks Faz! Agreed, we all know it’s kind of contrived so we may as well have fun whilst doing it! x
