As at yesterday morning, I was beyond frustrated because after much delay the photographer that was supposed to take my Red series pictures cancelled on me. That was supposed to be my first major shoot for the blog and you can imagine how my excitement was quickly doused.
I tried to get help but none was forthcoming so I went to my Instagram and saw some likes from a photography page. I sent a dm to the account and explained my predicament (this was around 11:30am) and I was just lucky because the photographer just cancelled a pre-wedding shoot. We quickly talked details and picked Ikeja City Mall as the location. My friend Foyin had to go with me so I could change clothes easily.
Traffic and all, we got there around 3 and started the shoot around 4pm. Walking round the mall to find a suitable place, CK (the photographer) mentioned that he saw a sign stating no cameras allowed in the mall and we were planning to just shoot and claim ignorance if we get caught LOL.
Long story short, we ended up shooting this outfit in the middle of the mall, and with the very nice and beautiful Nescafe people who were doing an exhibition at the mall. It was weird at first because people kept staring at me but I got into it.
I ended up shooting three outfits and I really can’t wait to share the others with you! Thank you CK for doing this at a very short notice. Foyin my darling, I still owe you that movie we missed. Thank you for turning up for me.
So yeah it’s red Christmas for me and this dress is so cute! The cape jacket adds so much character to the outfit and I didn’t want to take the spotlight away from it, hence the simple black sandals and clutch.
