Here’s to 100

For my 100th post, I thought I’d share some sweet nothings about myself and
E X T R A S K I N N Y.

xs studio

Studio.  My “studio” is actually my back patio.  The decision stemmed from privacy more than visual aesthetics.  For subsequent posts, I’d like to venture out into the open.  It’s totally out of my comfort zone, but bloggers like Song of Style have inspired me to take the leap.  Maybe not into the 101th post, but 189th?

xs photographer

Photographer.  My boyfriend photographs all of my shots.  He encouraged me to start a blog and gave me a little push when posting was spotty.   Now that I have my gears going, I might turn the tables and take some pictures of him.  Could there be some menswear posts in the future?  We’ll see.  But for now, I’ll stick to reading Dru’s style guide on we wear things.


Insecurity.  I am the most un-photogenic person you’ll ever meet.  That’s why my head is hidden or cropped in most of my pictures.  I try to be posey to save face.  You have to work with what you’ve got right?

Cheers to 100 posts!

    I actually really like the way you take photographs! I’ve never seen another fashion blogger with the head cropped off. It’s something unique from other bloggers!

    Congrats on your 100th post!

    As a newbie to your blog, it’s so cool to read more about you. I love your backdrop & pictures, and wondered how who took them. What a great photographer your bf is, and you certainly do not look unphotogenic, I’m amazed at your pictures every time! Wish I weren’t so self-conscious so I could someone to take my pics, as resting it on the boot of my car is not very good, haha…

    Btw, would you like to exchange links? I’d love to add you to my blog roll 😉

    your bf does a great job taking your photos! i have to say though, you have THE best poses. hands down. the positioning of your body and arms seem so fluid and natural. (I always feel SO awkward. =P) AND even though there have been only a few photos where i’ve seen your face, i’ve always thought you had a stunning face.

    congrats on your 100th!

    HAPPY 100th POST!!! i think you’re super photogenic!! i always look so.. um.. ’emo’.. whilst looking downward.. as if, i can’t see the camera means the camera cannot see my face.
    oh and i like your patio.. it’s quite aesthetically pleasing! but your style is top notch! i’d love to play in your closet! and Dru’s posts never disappoint!
