(motorcycle jacket from H&M, lace bustier and asymmetrical drape skirt from Foreign Exchange, thrifted ankle boots)
This is my first outfit that I photographed since coming back from Berkeley, hence the change in scenery. I had been looking for an affordable motorcycle jacket for awhile, and I finally found one at H&M. FYI, if you sign up for H&M's online newsletter, you can get a 20% coupon.
I think the tough look of the biker jacket and ankle boots is balanced by the softer appearance of the drape skirt. I like this outfit because it balances a bunch of textures: matte leather, lace, soft knits, patent leather, and suede. In addition, the zippers on the jacket and the boots (I love double zippers) add a nice touch of metal without having to accessorize.
I'm trying to shoot more these days. I've been getting faster at completing these photoshoots, so it's fairly easy to photograph an outfit before I head out to class.
Have a lovely day! xx
