See?... This Is EXACTLY Why I Do This...

Ever since I started using my handy dandy built-in camera to take my picture for my fashion posts I've learned a VERY valuable lesson...

I like it:

RuhRoh!


People you can't see your own back no matter how hard you try... but the camera don't lie. Even when I'm not posting my picture I've taken to trying on my outfits in front of the computer's camera instead of a mirror. Seriously... it has totally changed how I look at my clothes. To my eye, in the mirror, the back of this dress was smooth and not puckered. Mostly because in order to see your back you tend (or I do) to stand in an unnatural posture. With the camera I can stand perfectly upright and see how things really fit... for better or worse.

I think it's really cute and looks fine from the back. You crazy lady :) (I mean that in a nice way)

P.O.M.,
seriously?!!? click the back pick... it is too tight. I'm hunting down the Medium... because I do love it & the color.
You know where to get your own ;)

i think it looks good too. and too good from the front and side to not keep it.

perhaps you need a different bra! bra-shopping ho! (i mean ho as in go forth, not as in you will be a ho that is shopping for bras.)

Mrs Furious said...

could be a bra issue...
I'll get the medium and take side by side comparison shots... I suspect it will fit similarly in front since the seam under the bodice has elastic in it.

Stay tuned... I'll get the other one tomorrow!

Agreed -- new bra required, not the medium! You look great!

(i mean ho as in go forth, not as in you will be a ho that is shopping for bras.) lol!!

It looks adorable. Love the color on you. The back looks fine. I agree it is probably a bra issue and really who cares as long as it is comfortable.

Totes! It is a bra issue fo sho. Cute cutes!! I want one :)

While I utterly agree that this process is an awesome way to get a true look at your clothes, the angle is to low.

From that vantage point, the view you are getting is the line of sight of a child. And they really don't care how your butt looks.

I'd suggest moving the camera up, and pointing the lens down.

I vote for a bra fitting, too. I think the dress fits great and look fabulous on you.

I like this idea. I have the built-in camera thing going on, too. I think I'll wait until a couple months after this next kid comes in order to implement your system, though. I'm not sure I can handle the truth right now or within a couple months postpartum.
