This might sound generalising and oversimplifying, but I don't think I'm wrong when I say that most of the social media is used to show ourselves at our best. Best make-up, interesting locations, perfect fitting outfits, tasty-looking food, awesome friends.. and that's cool, because most of us like looking at positive stuff. :)
It will be different today though, as this post will be about dresses that I ordered online.. and that were definitely not a success when I put them on. By the way, this is what I usually do.. I come home, see the package(s), take a shower, set up the camera and start trying them on. Am I weird?
It was a long work-day, so I couldn't be bothered to do make-up! So it's back-sides or cropped-off heads.. trust me.. it's for the better! :P
So the dress depicted above was just a little too tight and the colours weren't really working for me. And also the fabric.. I didn't like it.. it gave me goose-bumps.
This second dress.. I don't even think I have to tell you why I returned this one. This dress is a clear example of how a piece of clothing can look great from the front-side.. but absolutely rubbish from the back-side.
This third dress is a classic example of how something looked good in theory on the website, but when finally on my body.. it just looked all frumpy! Ah well.. you win some, you lose some.. right?
And this is why I always take photos when I'm trying on stuff.. from all angles! It's better than relying on just the mirror! ;-)
I have no videos of this dress fitting session, so I'll just leave you with two most recent ones!
