Red Obsession

I really like this bright red trend.. โค๏ธ

Personally, I usually go for neutral colours, I’m always afraid of getting sick of intense colours and patterns and I am always trying to not let fashion trends carry me away..

This season is just being so full of reds everywhere, every shop, on the streets, and even here, I asked Cathy to pick some of her favourite winter outfits and here she is, in this beautiful RED jumperย ๐Ÿ˜‚

As I said in this post New Year, New Styleย I am changing a bit my photography style, bringing some different colours to it ๐Ÿ˜‰

So, about Cathy and her outfit.. she actually started with the shoes! She saw these cute and funย limited editionย โ€œDonโ€™t Careโ€ shoes and bought them right away, she added the socks to make it even cuter ๐Ÿ˜ย Then she picked the jumper because it is super cosy for the cold weather and she is also obsessed with red โค๏ธย and finally the stripy trousers to add another bit of fun!

P.s. In December I was tempted to buy a bright red jumper.. but kept telling myself “No, it’s too bright, you will wear it once, twice and never again.. and you don’t need any more clothes”

And I resisted.. Until yesterday! ๐Ÿ˜ฒ

New Year, New Style

Happy new (not so new anymore) year! โœจ

Iโ€™ve been rethinking this project, I was very excited in the beginning but after a while it lost its sparkle and made me go look for new challenges..

2017 was a very intense year, I went to Brazil, changed jobs, planned a wedding, got married, lost my full time job and decided to go back to being a full time photographer.

I have changed, and consequently these changes will reflect on my photos.

This is my most recent photo shoot for Our Closet, new outfit, new photography style.. I kinda feel like this is more the direction I want to go.. ๐Ÿ™ƒ

Anyway, this is Cathy and she fell in love with this jumper because of the big pops of red which is one of her fav colours at the moment (that btw is THE colour of the moment โค๏ธ) and she knew it would go great with her red skirt!

I loooove it! Super cute ๐Ÿ˜

Floral Dress and Sis’ Sunnies

Megan saw this dress in a vintage shop and immediately fell in love with it! ๐Ÿ˜ 

The floral print is beautiful, very summery and its short sleeves let her show off her tattoos!

She bought it to wear with her fishnets and the shoes she treated herself to, after doing so well in her college exams! ๐Ÿ˜Š

“My brother was moving to Scotland and I got this outfit for his going away party, but  the first time I wore it was actually for this photoshoot, as the party only happened a week later” ๐Ÿ˜‚

Her bracelet says “Megan” and is her baby bracelet, a gift her older sis gave her and she has been wearing it since she was only 2 weeks old ๐Ÿ˜ฒ It still fits her, I think that’s amazing!

And her sunnies are actually her younger sister’s (that by the way, will be here soon too) they swapped them because they decided their own would match the other’s outfit better! Typical sisters ๐Ÿ˜Ž

And you, what do you share with your sis?

A Nightgown as a Dress

Martha always wears what she likes and likes what she wears! ๐Ÿ˜‰

This is a nightgown, but she doesn’t care! What matters is that it looks really nice with her favourite skinny jeans!

She first wore it when she was moving house and hosting a house โ€˜coolingโ€™ party.

“It felt lovely swishing around the house topping up everyones prosecco in it!” ๐Ÿพ

She loves red and when she wears red clothes and lipstick she gets loads of random passersby serenading her with “lady in red” and it makes her smile ๐Ÿ˜Š

Now, this camera bag has to be the cutest thing ever! She saw it in a fashion magazine and specifically went on the hunt to get it ๐Ÿ“ท

“It holds next to nothing and often turns upside down, spilling all my goods on the ground.. but who cares when it looks this cute!” ๐Ÿ˜

A Sea Themed Outfit

Martha loves outfits that tell a story. She matched these pieces because they all have a “sea” element, the image of a boat on the necklace, a swan on the top and the mossy coloured dress underneath, that moves like murky water ๐ŸŒŠ

The necklace was a gift from an old friend, it has a watch inside ๐Ÿ•”

The top was a present from her niece, she caught her admiring it, remembered and bought it for her for Christmas ๐ŸŽ

The dress used to be her sister’s (the mother of that same niece who gave her the top). She likes to wear it as a โ€˜skirtโ€™ with tops over because it’s a bit too big for her to wear it as a dress ๐Ÿ‘—

She told me she wore this outfit to work a few weeks ago and a lot of people liked it ๐Ÿ˜

The boots which are a bit scuffed at this stage bring some edge to an otherwise girly look and gives the outfit a hard and soft balance that Martha loves ๐Ÿ’š

Dancing and Fashion

Last week I photographed a person with a very unique style, Martha! And she picked really, really nice outfits ๐Ÿ˜

Martha likes to wear makeup, skirts, dresses and heels almost every day, even if she is not going anywhere, she can buy a beautiful new dress and wear it that same day sitting at home ๐Ÿ‘—

 “I donโ€™t believe in saving your best clothes for rare, special occasions”.

She bought this skirt for the Rose of Tralee Festival, when she was a participant a few years ago. She remembers wearing it to the circus, with a white corset and a little hat and feeling like a ringmaster herself! ๐ŸŽช She loves its bright pink, the heavy fabric and the way it moves beautifully. 

“I think Iโ€™ll probably keep it forever”.

Martha has two passions in life: dancing and fashion! And her shirt encompasses them both, and although she is not usually a fan of patterns, she loves this one so much ๐Ÿ’™

“I think itโ€™s the most beautiful pattern Iโ€™ve ever seen”.

She prefers to wear silver or white shoes to black as a neutral footwear choice. These sandals are perfect for her in the summer as she doesn’t like to show her Irish dancer’s not so beautiful toes ๐Ÿ˜‰

And her super cute bag was a great bargain! She fell for its colour and fluffy material. ๐Ÿ‘› And while it has a label, this doesn’t really matter for her, she prefers buying cheap things often and keep recycling her closet than spending a lot on designers products! 

I totally agree with her! Who doesn’t love a bargain?? ๐Ÿ˜

Comfy with Personality

This is Camila’s second outfit! 

She loves her skirt because it’s comfy and goes with almost everything she has in her closet ๐Ÿ˜Š

She likes to wear this outfit on warm days to go for drinks or food ๐Ÿป

Her necklace is really cool and gives the outfit a lot personality ๐Ÿ˜

I love her outfit! What do you think?
