Blah-Blah Blog

Picture imperfect: I'm still working out the kinks in my makeshift photo studio, aka the "Gay-rage" There's lots of room for improvement, but I've just got to buckle down and get to work. There's plenty of things to list! 

Today, I had some fun prancing about, in front of, and behind the camera, trying to model various items, with mixed results.  Today's theme was "the need for Tweed," and I wore some spectacular specimens of tweed clothing, including the moto-jacket made from tweed, and this office-ready skirt. I'll be listing them soon. 

I've decided that I need to recruit some models! So I put the call out, and hopefully can get some fresh faces in front of the lens. I think it'll be easier and more fun for all. So maybe in a couple of weeks, I can have a fun editorial style spread for you, featuring lovelies modeling my "fresh picked vintage."


A year ago today I lived a whole other life, and the year before that, in a whole other different locale. It's kinda funny/cool/weird to see what's changed, and what's stayed the same.

That's about it for now- I'm feeling under the weather, and need to take easy this week. See you on the flip side!

I agree with Patti, sorry to hear you're not feeling well. You did a great job of faking it while doing the photo shoot for your "need for tweed". Studio is looking fantastic, love the picture frame idea.

Terri said...

Oh, I love the frame! I recently popped for studio lighting equipment, but I'm fairly certain it will be winter before I set it up and master all the new bells and whistles. That's what I'm loving about the selling...so much to learn.

Love the new backdrop and frame, and I LOVE all of those looks! Especially the first one!

I like your new studio and the latest 'geek chic' look- I'd come and model, if only I could just pop round. Feel better soon.

How great to have a studio set up and ready for use! It looks nice and bright, and I love the single big picture frame. Great outfits, too. I get the feeling we're all ready for some tweed now after a long, hot summer.

I hope you feel better soon.

Nice studio space - I would love to have a place like that to use. It will be fun to dress up some other gals. Hope you feel better soon!

Tamera Wolfe said...

Love the new studio!!
It's been amazing watching your changes this past year or so!! You ROCK

Tilda said...

Liking the frame and the concrete background. Its so hard to get a good setup for listings pictures, but it looks like you're on your way!

Lynn Dylan said...

I hope you are feeling better. Regarding what you said about time passing and changes, one of the things I love about blogging is being able to go back and see my life in pictures and feel like I am right there again. Some of those places I like being in again, and some of those places I wouldn't do again.

XOXO
Lynn

Emalina said...

Get well soon dear Bella. You look wonderful in those tweed outfits, I love it when you show off your gorgeous pins in mini skirts! Congratulations on your happy transformations over the years, here's to many more my friend.

Ariane Lasalle said...

Get well Bella!
I love the backdrop, the frame
Models are a good idea, Izzy does the same, apparently sales go up when you hire models -

Hope you are feeling alright again. Love your studio work. And tweed is very happening this fall. So you should sell them easily.
I wonder what it is going to be like with other models. Please let us see you from time to time as well. I love your serious-looking face.
