It's harder to do than it looks! But I know your jaw's just dropping over my rainbow skirt - isn't it gorgeous?
- Top - Grey by Jason Wu, thrifted; purchased here for $19.95
- Skirt - J. Crew, consignment; last seen here in March with grey bookends
- Shoes - Big Presence Desmond, Fluevog; last worn here in February with a wooly outfit
- Jacket (below) - Gap, consignment, Vancouver; last seen here (2nd outfit) in April for a chilly garden party
I'm an ally for LGBTQ1A2S+ folks in my office (and in general) and as we celebrate Pride Month in June, I can show my support through my outfits.
I had so much love for this skirt today, and my colours in general - it feels so good to be bright.
But let's talk about the top, as this is its first wearing. It's swanky designer Jason Wu, thrifted for a bargainous price.
As most of you will have realized by now, I do the same poses over and over and over again: the stair pose, leg one way, then the other, hand posed here, elbow out there.
I will not repeat this pose; if I decide to add a sideways pose to my repertoire I'll experiment in a mirror first.
Compare this pose, and any of my other usual poses above - the key is diagonals. The human eye loves diagonals. See how the leaning back of my upper body and the leg pointed across the other leg creates a diagonal? My stair pose is a big diagonal.
Anyway, I ramble. I hope you enjoyed a peek into my process. What's your best go-to pose?
