I’m not sure if I’m the only one who thinks that OOTDs are getting pretty uniform – similar poses, similar outfits, similar locations and probably similar if not the same cameras. Just to be clear, I’m also talking about myself here. OOTDs seem to have set parameters that everybody follows and while familiar, I think it’s always nice to take a breather and try to swim against the current, even just for a bit, in the way we digest our outfits. I don’t think I’d be drastically changing anything soon but now more than ever, even the slightest edit is appreciated.

I’m always for reinvention and evolution and to be honest, I’m kind of getting tired of seeing my own photos and choosing four  shots out of about 50 tries where it’s practically the same angle. I never even change my make up so it really is just the same face.

So I figured for my next #iamForever21PH look I’d use Instax photos. No edits, no difficulty in choosing (sometimes options screw you up) and an easy, different feel altogether. Threw in some doodles, just for the heck of it. This Forever 21 fringe dress has been one of my go-to dresses for a while now. Basic enough to feel absolutely comfortable in but packs a big enough punch to make a statement. Fringe is definitely one of the more common trends that’s been shown this fashion month. From Giambattista to Céline, fringe has been swishing on the runways of S/S 2015 and I personally can’t wait to see more of it trickle down to high street retailers.

Thinking of doing an Instax Style Series once in a while to just switch things up. If you have any ideas on how to take even more creative OOTDs, do share. I’m open to your fantastic ideas.
