Ops I did it again!


 Monday night, after a few shots of tequila and some cheesy pop music from my teenage years blasting from the computer, I gave the white wall posing another try.

This is most definitely not my most original look although it would appear otherwise. I can not take credit for anything you see.
The make-up was inspired by the The Chic muse.
Although I have been sporting the same old cat eye look since I was 18, I have never exaggerated as much as I did in this post.

The styling would have been my own if I haven't decided to add this faux fur hat to the mix. Not that the hat isn't mine but most normally I wouldn't have paired the two together unless large portions of alcohol had been ingested most certainly not the case after just a  few sips of that yummy Mexican poison.  Iulia from Dream Size Zero seems to have such a strong grasp of me that not only do I shamelessly and poorly copy her posing but it seems unconsciously her styling as well.

But no worries! I am still my old tacky glitzy self, so my next look later this week will bring exactly that.

Hat: Claire's
Dress: Helmut Lang
Cuff: Erickson Beamon for Target
Shoes: Salvatorre Ferragamo
Earrings: Vintage

 P.S. Thank you to all who have given me feedback on my latest post. I have taken each advice into consideration and I am currently working on improvements.
The layout was changed into something a bit more organized yet just as simple as to not detract from the content.
As to the banner, which has been the thing that most of you had suggested needed changing, well its creation is underway. Yet a further discussion of it will have to take place!

:))))) This photos are so fun and you look beyond cute with that fur hat. I also love the makeup- it adds even more of the “exotic” element to your features (which I think you already have). I think you should make the white wall photos a regular on the blog. Many kisses:)

nookie said...

I should have done some yesterday after my vodka marathon;)
no walls for that though..
I think the hat looks really fun with the dress! In the small photo in the reader I thought you changed your hairstyle& color:-s

Cheesy pop music from teenaged years? AMAZING.
Boy bands are totally underrated these days.
BTW, these pictures are awesome. I love your black outfit. It shows up superbly against the white wall. Definite win.

Yes well, Iulia is a inspiration, but if you feel it isn't you doing this, maybe you souldn't force it. I know I am comfortable with my old classic poses :)) And I love your makeup! Denni from Chic Muse is really exaggerating with the eyeliner, but it looks good on her. I tried once that much, and I felt ridiculous! :))

Holly said...

you look great! love the furry hat lol

I wanted to thank you for stopping by my blog the other day. I really appreciated your advice. You seem to have a strong head on your shoulders, and for that I commend you!

Beautiful photos! I love the dress and the hat! xxx

I love your wall photos! I think your poses are really cool and make it pop so it's not just a boring wall photo. Nothing wrong with taking inspiration from fellow bloggers, imitation is the highest form of flattery :) I like the exaggerated eyeliner on you. You manage to make it look wearable whereas Denni sometimes makes it look a little bizarre.

Kimberlee said...

Love the makeup! I see you changed your blog a little ;) Very nice.

Melissa said...

beautiful post! thanks for your comment, have fun when you come to london!

aliciafashionista said...

You are just stunning Mina!!!! I'd say the tequila and pop music helped, because you really let the model in you shine. Great shoot my darling :)

Love Bonche said...

CHESCA said...

Great shoes!!!!!

Love at First Blush said...

I love the spontaneity of this shoot! From looking at your other shoots, this is by far my favorite.

Great posing and styling. Keep it up!

These white wall photos - though inspired by another blogger, are fantastic! I think over time you will make this more and more your own. I encourage you to keep doing them! I really like seeing these posts (even if they are taken with cheesy pop music in the background :P )

BTW, I'm thinking of hitting up the Salvatore Ferragamo museum in Florence when I'm there - shall I try and find a postcard to send you if I end up going there?

PinKky said...

You look so great :) i follow you ;)

Lara said...

exaggerating is great! you look awesome!

a dreamer. said...

it doesn't matter you got inspired from somewhere, what matters is to fit you well and to look great in each angle, not to look like you're trying hard.
so you made it!
and i don't think the make-up black line is too much! i think it's still on the normal way.

love,
a dreamer
