I hate my pictures, so much so that I don't really allow people to take photo's of me...not even with my kids. How does this tie into this post?
I have been dieing for this skirt from Anthropologie, however knowing that my 4'11" frame can't pull horizontal stripes. I knew it would never happen.
When I went to Joann's for my daughter last week I found the perfect fabric and I thought I would try to make my own but make it vertical strips. I was so excited I couldn't wait.
I used this tutorial for the waist, but hen did my own thing for the bottom (which I do truly love). I cut slits in for different areas then cut triangle pieces of fabric and stitched them in place with the top of the triangle angled to the waist band.
So Here is the problem I made it, put it on, looked in the mirror and LOVED it. I couldn't wait to ware it. so the next day I wore it all day and when my daughter got home from school I had her take pictures so I could share.
After I saw the pictures pure disappointment. Is it just the pictures? Does it really look that bad? How could I have loved it before in the mirror.
So my question is do you ever love something in the mirror and then dislike it when you see yourself in pictures with that item? Just curious.
