[Lookbook 05.06.2012] Self-portrait practice


I went out today to have a haircut and to pick My Bibe up. I got to wear my new shorts from Regatta (that I love so much) and I thought of doing a lookbook post before heading out. Problem was, I had no one to take my photos. So I brought out the ancient tripod, mounted the camera, framed the shot, set the timer, and stood in front of the lens. Click! Then I checked the shot, set the timer again, posed again, checked the shot, and the cycle went on. Geez, I need a remote!

I was sweating through the whole process but I thought it would be a good practice for my lonesome trip this Friday. Yes, I'll be traveling alone again after almost a decade and who do I expect to take my pictures but myself? But I really need a remote.


The shorts I'm wearing are part of a collection of dusted pastel shorts from Regatta. I picked the blue one although they have it in pink, yellow and green as well. White, too (though I know white is not pastel). They fall just above the knee and have a tapered fit that I like.

I wore it with an old floral-printed tee that I thought goes well with the blue shorts. Now for some color, I put on these fabric boat shoes.


And just like that it's Monday again!
T-shirt (from Bangkok); shorts (Regatta); boat shoes (Topman); watch (Timex); sunnies (Aldo).

  6. God, yes... taking pics of yourself with the timer is really exhausting! I've been through that a lot too... and I still have nightmares about it! LOL

    But your pics still look professional, so no worries :)
