About a few weeks ago, when this look was shot, my blogger friend Whitney and I had set out to take outfit photos with a whole plan in mind – only to find out that the London weather has fooled us once again, and we were stuck in the pouring rain.
Deciding then to meet at the luxurious Savoy Hotel for a little teatime and chat, we waited for the rain to pass. For those who have been to London or who know how London weather works, the rain obviously didn’t stop. Sometimes it rains here for days! So my choice was to embrace the crazy weather and shoot this outfit under the rain.
The look I chose to wear is an oversized turtleneck sweater (the only one I own, I should really get some more of them as they’re so comfy and warm!), black leather pants, a fedora felt hat (this one is by René Derhy), these rocker Michael Kors ankle boots and my Burberry bag. The perfect look for a rainy day? I’d say no.. But I guess we just need to adopt ourselves to the weather!
On another note, I’m not sure if you can tell, but these pictures are actually Photoshopped! As much as I love playing around with Photoshop, I usually never edit my blog photos except for brightening the color from time to time. For these though, they came out SO dark that they were almost unusable, but luckily I had a few tricks up my sleeve… And I think they look pretty good in the end, don’t you think?
