tripod troubles

A short while ago I'd posted that I was starting a fashion blog. Well, I really enjoy what I've been wearing, but you just haven't seen any of it. (Except for my new coat in the cherry blossoms photo.)

I've been experimenting with the tripod but I haven't been happy with any of the shots. I don't think there's a space in our "cozy" apartment that's wide enough to allow a nicely proportioned photo. Other options are to wait til MoBob wakes up (and risk his occasionally questionable photography skills) or to take photos in the backyard.

Here are some blogs I really like, mainly because the bloggers are so cute and they wear "normal clothes":
Childhood Chalk
Frocks and FrouFou
Already Pretty
and a local Washington DC blog which I like because it features similar items at different price points (Elected Official, Hill Staffer, and Unpaid Intern): Capitol Hill Style

Hey Sylvia! I'm so with you there on liking fashion but being disappointed in the dearth of plus-size ideas! Thanks for posting your outfit of the day and for the links.

I watch http://www.flickr.com/groups/fatshionista/ and http://www.fatshionista.com/cms/, http://30dressesin30days.blogspot.com/ and http://www.youngfatandfabulous.com/ for ideas. You got anymore link ideas?

This community does sales posts every weekend in case you're looking to pick up some new pretties for cheap. they seem like nice people.

I hadn't seen the T Minus, T Plus or the Deals blog before! Thanks for the links. I meant to link you to http://community.livejournal.com/fatshionista/ for the sales posts but apparently forgot to do that.

I do belong to that community but haven't bought anything except for a Macy's gift card. :)

I'm excited that you've finally updated your fashion blog. I've checked it in vain while you were overseas, on the off chance that you'd update while away. I'm looking forward to this undertaking!
