5 Fashion Faux-Pas I made in this outfit


Hi everyone,

I hope you are all doing well. This week has been very challenging to me. I am surprise to see how resilient I can be as a mom and also how determined I can be when I really want something. On Monday I fell up the stairs on my spines. Although the injury was minor, the pain was - and still is- horrible. Since I made it clear to the doctor that there is no way that  I can be on bed rest full time with 3 kids (a 6 years old and twins of 2), so he probably thought that a wheelchair would help or maybe given that the wheelchair itself is also painful, would actually convince me to stay in my bed. But if you are a mom, you know that is impossible - so painkillers are my best friends with some rest in the middle. Let's talk about bad timing, shall we?  Anyway, I wanted to give you some heads up since my blogspots are being published pretty late this week.


So for today's post, I wanted to openly talk about all the faux-pas I made in this outfit. So before I start- I think I should defend myself:  I do monthly photoshoot session mostly because I have a full time job and I live in the complete opposite direction to @vonvonphotography and I am also committed to the blog schedule. And most of the time, I do have to go to work after the session. So this outfit was the last out of a serie of 12 so needless to say I was a little tired and in a rush to get it over with. With that said, let's talk about the 5 fashion faux-pas I made for this one:

  • Hairdo: I should have gone with an updo. To my defense I did bring the bobby pins with me but completely forgot about them;
  • Watch: I should have not wear a watch with the gown. I had it on since the previous outfit was this one here;
  • Makeup: Current make up did not do the dress justice. I should have gone - at least- with a red lipstick (which I had with me again) to elevate the look. Red is the complementary color of green in the chromatic color wheel and would have made the look more glamorous.
  • Jewelry: Earrings to be more precise. I should have gone with a pair of classic chandeliers (I had them with me). Then again, we were all tired and all too excited to get this session over with.
  • Alteration: The dress was way too big for me.  I picked the smallest size available and although we made a few tricks to make it fit, It needed alteration to fit my body properly (size and length). Anyway, in that particular case, alteration was obviously impossible since  I had to return the dress to the store :-).

I love that dress. It is perfect to attend a summer wedding. Can you tell tell that green is growing on me? Anyway, I wanted to plan a remake but we were officially locked down the day following my photoshoot session and instead of giving up on them I prefer to share them with you and making it some sort of a teaching moment. I hope you will enjoy that one as I am openly self-criticizing my work. 

Thanks for stopping by and remember to stay home and safe.

XoXo,

Moumous

  1. I agree with the red lipstick and earrings but for the other faux pas if you didn't mention it, it wouldn't be noticeable.

  2. I intellectually understand how each of these things is important and would elevate what you are trying to portray with his dress, but honestly, had you not mentioned them, I wouldn’t have noticed. Green is a fantastic color on you! That I do notice.

  3. I wouldn't have noticed those faux pas on my own but once you mentioned them, I can see how correcting them would make the outfit and shoot better. That is a very pretty dress!

    1. Thank you Mireille :-). Honestly, just taking the watch off would do just fine but the additional few changes can make a nice difference :-). Thank you,

  5. My immediate impression was that the dress looks stunning on you, I didn't see the imperfections until you pointed them out. Sorry to hear about your bad back and hope it feels better soon. Thanks for linking up at #WowOnWednesday.
