I’ve tried – unsuccessfully – on and off for a few years now to add a fashion series to the blog. Ideally I wanted to combine it with a more personal post. Just a little backstory or insight into my little world to give me more of a chance of connecting with you guys. In my head these posts would include me, looking casual but stunning, out for a coffee or at a gallery. You know, the usual stuff I never have time for on a Saturday afternoon.
Along with the logistics of living in a damp country with hair that frizzes up at the mere sight of a cloud while not being a ‘hat person’, I’ve come to the reluctant conclusion I do not look good in photos. Now, I’ll admit there are photos I like of myself knocking around somewhere and I’ve managed to get taking photos of myself (in a small room with no one else around) down! But posing for a camera is just beyond my capabilities and it’s about time I accepted that.
With that in mind I decided to go down a new route. I created a space in my studio and set up this DIY Hanging Wardrobe Rail. My (exciting) new plan is to show the clothes hanging up here with styled surroundings that connect with and complement the outfits. (The pressure eases off immediately!) That decided I needed some clothes hangers that would look fantastic in these set ups, so I headed straight for the copper spray paint and here’s the result. I can’t wait to get it set up and give it a go. There’s even an extra special DIY backdrop coming your way next week to give the space something really special. Pop over to Homedit to see the full Copper Clothes Hangers post and follow me below to find out if the new styling works out as well as I hope!

I know what you mean about posing, I’m about as uncomfortable as I can be when I’m iin front of a lens. So I love the idea you have for your new style posts! Can’t wait for the first one :) (ps I’ve been seeing your shots of you in Tulum on insta and you’re gorgeous! You have nothing to worry about being in front of a camera :)
Can’t wait to see how this set up will go. :) looking forward to the first post.

I feel exactly the same as you about posing in front of a camera. It’s why I very rarely post selfies as I’m so self conscious! I don’t think you have anything to worry about though as the pics I’ve seen with you in are lovely! Saying that if you’re not comfortable doing it there’s no point in making yourself and your new idea is great. I’m so in love with copper at the moment and these clothes hangers are gorgeous :) Looking forward to seeing this series develop! x
Really interested to see how this new series pans out. Totally with you on the pictures part. Party I blame our Britishness for our self deprecation! ;) But really impressed to see you try and take this on from a new angle. Good luck!
