Out and about....inside out

From Fashionistable
On a recent trip to the Tate Modern I spotted Sophie. I loved her use of blue. I am amazed I got her in focus. For any of you who know about photography I was shooting on 1000 iso at a 15th of a sec. I normally find a 30th of a sec as good as it gets for me when hand holding and would ideally be shooting on 100 iso. It is a very grainy shot as a result. (OK technical bit over now.) Sophie is from Switzerland but is living in Italy at the moment. In January she will move back to the UK to Oxford write her PHD in Ancient Greek. Smart cookie hey. Also talented. When I asked her to tell me something surprising she told me she was also a dancer and actress. Her style influences are iconic actresses from the 50's. She likes simple classical forms and bright colours. Saying that 'the special thing would be the colour'. Her scarf is by Jeff - can't find a link. sweater is Koan, trousers are Bread Jeans and her beautiful shoes are Louboutin.

1/15 at 1000 iso - I'm so impressed. These modern cameras with their anti-shaking devices and all... but still, you need a very steady hand and you certainly got a super quality out of the shot. After all that technical talk... The girl is beautiful, too :)

Ooh those shoes! The whole outfit works well for her! What a stunning face she has. And great job on the photography!

My eyes immediately went to her shoes— they take her outfit to the next level! Imagine if she had been wearing boring black flats or something?

Love this look! Mostly because it looks accessible, I can totally see myself wearing a similar outfit, which isn't the case with a lot of the outfits on streetstyle blogs.
