How to show us what you’re wearing

We’re just a day away from a week of outfits.

Here are a few ways you can show us what you’re wearing!

1. Hire a professional photographer to come and take your picture every day. After you’ve had your personal chef make you an omlette and some fresh-squeezed orange juice, of course.

2. Shyly and awkwardly ask a complete stranger to take your picture. Don’t forget to show them how to use your camera. That can always take a little bit of time… ahem… you hold it like this.

3. Ask your roommate or husband or co-worker to snap a pic of your outfit. Head to toe! We want to see your shoes too. Feel free to strike a fun “Amy” pose while you’re at it.

4. Take a picture of yourself in the mirror. Naturally a full-length mirror is best, so that we can actually see what you’re wearing, and not just your necklace. Here’s the key to doing this: do not look at yourself in the mirror, look at the camera {with your eyes} like you normally would. Otherwise you end up looking off in the distance and weird (it’s a reflection thing). In the picture below, it looks like I’m looking at myself, when in reality, I was looking at the camera. Also, turn your flash off for this.

Oh, you know, just practicing taking pics of myself in the mirror.

5. Aim the camera at your legs to show us what the bottom half of your outfit looks like, and do a selfie to show us what the upper half of your outfit looks like. You kind of have to extend your arms out as far as possible, bending your back to get a normal looking shot. If you’re having a bad hair day, you can shoot from the chin down. Or maybe you’re just extra shy. But really, we want to see you!

6. Pile your clothes on the floor Display your clothes neatly on the floor, including accessories and shoes, and take a bird’s eye view picture of the outfit.

The fun begins May 1st – – – Wednesday! I hope you’ll join in!
