Polka Dot Shirt Charity Shop

Faux Suede Boots Primark
Lipstick Mystic by Sleek Make Up
Hey everyone! First off, I just want to say sorry if these photos look a bit ‘overly Photoshopped’ – as with any others that look that way on the blog, often the light in the photographs requires a fair bit of colour correction, and since I’m still using my old Canon 400D I struggle a bit to get good resolution/quality at 620px wide without images being grainy – hence the Photoshopping!
In other news, my *NEW* camera arrived today, yay! I made the foolish mistake of thinking the kit lens from my 400D would fit my 5D Mark II, which means for the time being I only have my 50mm lens and no remote control = out of focus self timer photos! So, I’m sticking with my 400D until I can get my hands on my remote (which I forgot to bring to Somerset from my uni house in Rochester, oops!) which is a little bit annoying because I’ve been so excited about using my new one, but hey ho : ) and on the plus side, I managed to find a tripod which isn’t broken which is a huge help! ❤
As for the outfit, the polka dot shirt was a charity shop find, and for something like £3.50 it was a definite bargain! If you're a follower of my blog, you'll probably realise by now that I quite like polka dots, haha. The skirt was a gift from one of my best friends Charlie; she didn't think it suited her so she donated it to me, which I'm really happy about because I'd been eyeing these skirts up in New Look over Christmas, and burnt orange is a colour I really love – a match made in heaven, you could say? I love the 60's vibe it gives off. The boots are a few years old, but still a favourite item of mine – I get quite a lot of compliments on them, and no one ever believes me when I say they were only £15 from Primark! See ladies, there's solid proof that people can't generally tell how much of a cheapskate you might be! Haha : )
I'm currently planning my first video post – woohoo! I've been wanting to do one for such a long time, and so in celebration of the new camera I think its about time it happened, what do you think? Feeling a little bit nervous; its easy enough posting photos up, but there's a lot more to think about when it comes to talking to a camera without sounding like a loser… we'll see how it goes!
