{BDIB:: Sequins}

6 Jan

I have to be honest, this Bloggers Do It Better was tough for me.  Sequins– aren’t something I own a lot of!  Here is my shopping rule:: if I need to take insurance out on it for fear that I’ll ruin it with one wear- I don’t buy it, and sequins happen to be in that category.  I did find this sheer tank that I bought about a year ago.  I thought it’d be fun to layer it with a chambray top & fun pants.

Another confession, this was the first time I had to use my new tripod & remote, and I must say, I didn’t like it!  I missed having my great photographers {my roomies} make me laugh and “work it”.   Fellow bloggers, I need suggestions?!  Do any of you use a tripod & remote?  Teach me the ways!  How do you create fun angles & shots?  Do you just rely on the cropping?  Also, what in the world do you do with the remote while you shoot?! UGH!

    I also didn’t have much to choose from for this bloggers do it better and went with a chambray shirt and sequin tank-as-vest combo!

    Unfortunately I have no photography tips for you – I also had to take my own pictures but I don’t have a remote so there was a lot of pressing the button, then running across the room and posing in time for the self timer on my end!

    Love this look! I also love the design of the sequins on your shirt 🙂 Everything just goes so well together here! I decided to pair my sequins with stripes!

    I think have a hint of sequins in a top (like yours) is a great option if you are concerned about caring for the piece. I’m still figuring out my own pictures as well, good luck 🙂

    Just keep working on it – the tripod and remote thing will come more naturally the more you use them! I do prefer a live photographer to a tripod though, lol! #BDIB
