I am back! Well, I plan on doing the 365 project as of today, April 01st. I debated on when I was going to start doing it because on Saturday I will be flying out to Cali for the week. However, I do have enough OOTD (outfit of the days) for the beginning of the month. Right now, since I’m in the middle of fashion rediscovery for myself I figure this would force me to do other things… like make sure I dress cute.
Believe it or not I have been so incredibly lazy with what I wear. To the point where it’s teetering on the IDGAF Level 5 realm. Yeah… it has come to the point where I find a clean pair of pants and a shirt that may or may not match and then run out of the house. Even when I shoot it’s all about the Adidas work performance gear. It’s hard to get excited about clothes because I have nothing to wear.
I am excited about Cali because that may allow me to get a breathe of new air. I want to see what the style is out there and gather inspiration. Also, I’m hoping to hit up some boutiques there that I couldn’t necessarily find in Dallas and just change the style game up. In Cali I will be hitting up two cities and I may or may not have some vlogs while I’m out.
Since 2014 will be dedicated to more travelling I think I may do vlogs while I travel. I’m deciding if I should do every day… but I think I may be too busy for everyday material so I’m leaning towards a compilation of the week.
Nonetheless, I’m super excited to hit the West Coast up because the last time I was there was about four or five years ago. It’s a been long time coming.
Another exciting thing!
I HAVE A STUDIO!
Yes! My studio is based out in the Bishop Arts District in Dallas. Once I have competed the website I will share with you guys. I have taken some amazing pictures so far. Case in point this one below of my Sorority Sister!
I have good looking sisters, don’t I?
You know what else is new?!
I will now be concentrating on Boudoir and Portrait photography! Yes! While kids and weddings are cool and everything I just get more love and better photos from Boudoir and Portrait work. I love contacting with people one on one to bring out the best for the photos. In fact I have a new website and it’s called Wonderland Boudoir!
Yeah, that name is ah-mazing, isn’t it?
Below are some samples of recent work?
I really love the fact that I can actually see myself getting better. It’s great not only know, but see progression in my work. While I love my full body of work I will not take away the fact that I love it. Even when I see past work I now see things I could have done differently… but it’s great because I know how I could be better. I really love that.
I really do that love that.
The NEWEST thing?
I have a remote now for my camera which will allow me to take more OOTD pictures!
That was another thing that stopped me. The amount of time that it took to take these photos. It wasn’t really the time, but I live in Downtown Dallas and there are always people walking around and want to stop and stare at what you are doing. So I’m hoping my little device will allow me to shoot my pictures faster in one take and also allow for better pictures.
Wow? Did I seriously just type all that?
Thank all of you for really hanging in there with me and this blog. Especially the last week were I was just super wordy in all my entries. I have to give a shout out to S because the other week she really encouraged me to write the Kim Kardashian and Yeezy piece. She also reminded me that I needed to scribe the “Too Old for Forever 21, but Too Young for Ann Taylor” piece. After I finished those pieces it made me remember how much I just love writing. That’s why I loved the blog. It is an creative outlet for me.
Well, there you have it people. My first entry for the 365 project. Which I will not only accomplish, but demolish. Thank you all again for sticking with me… and I really can’t wait to jumpstart this. If you aren’t already following me on YouTube check me out at UrbanJungleFashion. However, it’s not overly necessary as I will be posting all those videos on my blog as well.
In the comment below please let me know how everything is going on with you!
