How To: a Fashion Blog Post

One of the biggest questions in blog land is, how do those fashion bloggers do it?  Well today I'm here to unveil all the secrets.  It's simple really.  Just follow these six steps...







ONE | Use leaves, girls love leaves in the Fall.







TWO | Candids.  Always take candid pictures, you never now they could turn out like these...







THREE | Use your iPhone, forget the DSLR you spent all that money on.  If you can't post it on Instagram it's pretty much nonexistent.  Because really, that little "favorite" heart determines the worth of your picture anyways -- no hearts, you fail.  #fact







FOUR | Use a Starbucks cup in your pictures.  You can't go wrong with a Starbucks cup, don't question this tip.







FIVE | Eye contact is a no-no.  Never make eye contact, just don't do it.  NOTE: this doesn't mean you can't smile because duh there is still a camera pointing at you.






SIX | a Photo Buddy.  When all else fails, sucker someone else to be in the photo with you.  Most choose a puppy or baby -- I have neither.  But occasionally I can sucker Thomas to getting into a picture.




All jokes aside, I admire all of the fashion bloggers I follow and truly aspire to have even an ounce of their hair, photogenicness (lets pretend that's a word shall we) and wardrobe one day.  

I sincerely hope that you will understand the sarcasm behind this post (as it can be missed in plain text sometimes) and will enjoy a good laugh today.  Cheers to those that get us to NEED the clothes they're wearing and look good while doing so; well done fashion bloggers, well done!

And in the mean time, I'll be working on my own fashion post with a amazing cause behind it.  Stay tuned until next week!  Feel free to leave your fashion post critiques on that post ;)




Who is your favorite fashion blogger to follow?  What actual tips do you have for creating a solid fashion post?  Have you ever successfully suckered someone into your photos?


 
 Say hello to this month's sponsor, Chelsea!

    ReplyDelete

  17. Thanks girl! It's good to laugh at ourselves once in a while, and as bloggers NEVER take ourselves too seriously. :)

    ReplyDelete
  18. You're welcome! I do the occasional fashion post, and really these tips do work if you are feeling uncomfortable. You can do it!

    ReplyDelete
  19. I love Instagram, and seeing other's OOTD always makes me wish I had their clothes or their matching sense....sigh. I'm glad I could help!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Haha, I have done the occasional fashion post, but am not a fashion blogger by any means. It's good to get out there and try different things, but I can only do some many different styles with this hair of mine ;) How they do it is beyond me, more power to them!

    ReplyDelete
  21. I've done a handful as well, and enjoy them but am no master. They are truly something else and I admire their hair and wardrobes completely! Plus I can't help but always think, man if only I owned that (fill in the blank). ;)

  22. Who doesn't love a bunch of colorful fall leaves, although the ones in my hands look pretty brown and blah. I'm a sucker for Starbucks, I have to admit, and the cups just make for sure perfect props, haha.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Well goal accomplished! Everyone can use an extra laugh or two mid-week. Good ole Starbucks, gotta love it!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Thanks Heather, you've made my day a little brighter with your sweet words. Nothing like making fun of yourself to receive a compliment in return! Happy hump day. :)

    ReplyDelete
  25. I have my favorites too, and they seriously blow my mind with every post they put up.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Thanks Helene! Eye contact is a no-no, every fashion blogger knows that ;)

    ReplyDelete
  27. Agreed, and speaking of I think I'm due for my second cup of coffee for the day. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  28. Starbucks is always the best go-to prop in a pinch, not to mention the caffeine that comes along. I'm thrilled you enjoyed the post :)

    ReplyDelete
  29. Amazing could be stretching it, but thanks for your uplifting words. Everyone should laugh at themselves every once in a while right?

    ReplyDelete
  30. This was great! Starbucks cups always make a photo better. :)

    ReplyDelete
  31. Haha this was hilarious! I'm definitely no fashion blogger, but a lot of these tips actually seem to stand true. Loved this!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I love your "love" tank with the kettle bell, where did you find that?

  33. Kristin DiCristofanoNovember 13, 2014 at 12:47 PM

    Haha I love this!! Your candid shot is my favorite. Oh and your photo buddy- adorable!

    ReplyDelete
  34. This is so hilarious. I love the "no hearts, you fail #fact" I was laughing so hard. I do agree with you though, I have no idea how fashion bloggers do it. I've tried and tried and just look ridiculous while they nail it everytime!!

    ReplyDelete
  35. LOL at the no eye contact. Fashion bloggers always seem to have a fascination with their shoes. As a shoe lover, I can respect that tho haha

    ReplyDelete
