So after about a million editing attempts, I think I've got a method down! I even managed to put my new editing technique as an Action on Photoshop, so it is easily accessible now! I'm so happy. :) It just better work for all my photos as well as I think it worked this time!

Along with struggling a bit with the editing process, I had to take these photos in a light rain fall! I (somehow) managed to prop up an umbrella over my camera as to not risk anything by getting it wet. Surprisingly, it worked long enough to get all these photos! It's a shame I don't have a photographer, but even so, I think I can pose better without someone watching me. Heheh. ;)

About my outfit - I've decided, I LOVE CAPES/PONCHOS. I have a new obsession! A great look I recently saw with one in it is in this post from Lucy of Dear Fish. Really, I love these things! This vintage houndstooth cape is part of a suit set that belongs to my mom, but has been hidden away in the garage! So glad I pulled it out!

2/7 finals finished; 5/7 finals left! See you soon!

I really like the editing that you did on your photos, that's awesome that you figured it out. I have the sketchiest photo editing program and I really wish I had photoshop. I'm jealous!

  18. Awww, don't you look adorable with your houndstooth cape and your cute pixie haircut! You remind me so much of Twiggy! You're so chic, girl!

    PS: Thanks for your sweet comment, hun! I'm following your lovelyyy blog as well :)


  19. Hi Elanor, lovely blog, I enjoyed reading and I love your style. I just got a cape myself, though haven't posted about it yet.

  20. I adore your pattern mixing! This is so so cute! Love your blog so far too!

  21. Your cape is amazing! I have been toying with the idea of getting one myself, and you definitely are inspiring me in the positive.

  22. I love the cape and tights and the whole color palette here!! You have such a cute look, someone said Twiggy and they were right!! I also struggle with having someone else take my photos, I blank out and dont know how to pose! In private I could pose for hours though...

  23. adorable. that jacket is awesome.

  24. I love your houndstooth cape! It's such a classic print and cut, and yet when paired with the pop of turquoise, the whole look is fresh and new! I especially like it paired with these lace tights!
    (And, I know what you mean about sometimes wishing you had a photographer! I'm a remote + tripod girl, and it can get tough - especially now when it's always snowing where I live! You do a great job with your photos. Beautiful!)
