What Goes Behind the Shoot



Dress c/o My Spring Fling, cape c/o Look Bible, jewelry c/o Keltie Leanne, bag c/o Roots

So as you may have noticed, I have a little multimedia aspect to the blog today! As I mentioned last month (can't believe it's November today, crazy!), I've been meaning to get a little more video action going for awhile now - when I was in journalism school, I always loved my video journalism class. I know this sounds weird, but for how awful/abrasive I am when speaking, I really do love being in front of a video camera...I just think it's fun. I also love the editing quality of it and how you can bring in so many different aspects to it, from transitions to music to voiceovers to countless other elements. 

Anyway, this video is actually for a little competition I'll be taking in soon (I'll let you know how that goes, may need a bit of support [pretty please!]), but I thought in the meantime, I'd run it by you guys and see how you all liked it! So there you have it...if you've ever been curious as to what goes on in my day-to-day life, other than going for a jog or my meals, this is pretty much it! Hope you like it...please try to be nice because being on film puts you in a far more vulnerable position than one still photo :)!

So if you haven't noticed yet, I'm really into rich tones: from purples to reds to navies, there really is something about fall that brings out a deep desire for deep colours. My latest Keltie Leanne Designs baubles were the perfect accompaniment to my navy/red duo - I'm pretty sure these earrings are my favourite of hers yet, though I love all Keltie Leanne pieces!

Happy November everyone!

So apparently the video didn't initially upload but should be all good now, thanks so much to those who gave me the heads up!

  4. Call me crazy pally, but I'm not sure your video upload properly...? I can't seem to find it in the post, but maybe I'm just blind. You look lovely as always, of course. That lace dress is such a gem and of course, Keltie's baubles add such a pretty touch to any outfit :)

I really love this outfit, the navy lace dress is gorgeous on you especially with the coloured tights. I loved hearing about how you get inspiration for other posts, taking pieces from summer and making them work for fall or winter is always awesome to see
