ELEPHANTS NEVER FORGET...


vintage aztec ethnic top, Romwe lace up pleather shorties/spiked cuff, vintage crochet maxi vest, vintage hat, Nasty Gal UNIF Hellbound boots, Target socks, Zara faux fur bag, H&M silver arm cuff, Mad Lady elephant necklace/tribal stones cuff, Beginning Boutique cage ring, eBay evil eye ring/bracelet, random rings and vintage oversized elephant head necklace

So the #1 question this week is "How do I look so fucking tall if I'm only 5'4? I thought I'd answer it on my blog just in case there is some other shorties out there DYING to know my secrets.

First off I have freakishly long arms/legs for a short person and feel I'm nicely proportioned for my height...kinda like a tall short person, lol!! Since I know my legs go all the way up, I tend to wear hoe shorts and mini skirt to make them appear longer.
Second and kinda the most important, I only wear 5-6 inch heels that elongate my legs. If a shoe hits me in a certain place on my ankles or calves it can make my legs appear stubby. That's why I loooove my new Hellbounds cause they give me that extra boost and not make me look like a short person on stilts!
Last but not least, CAMERA ANGLES! If you noticed my all my pictures are angled straight up to the sky. Which means I have my tripod all the way to the ground. Then I get up as close as possible head to toe, stretch out my body (sometimes standing on my tippy-toes, hehe) and lean towards the camera. Notice how I look like a giant compared to the house in the background and almost as tall as the trees?
Soooooo in conclusion it's all a fucking ILLUSION, you don't have to be some world renowned photographer to look tall in a photo! Just practice over time and it will get better, shizz I know I wasn't the greatest when I first started. Feel free to go back and see my progress.

Anywho Spring is amongst us and I can't fucking wait!! You?

Wow! You totally fooled me hun. All this time I truly believed you were taller then me - I'm 5'7" - judging by your awesome shots. Thank you so much for the tips.

I want to become as proficient as you are with a tripod. My skills with it are bare. :P

And by the way I'm excited for Spring as well.

Every piece of this outfit is fabulous, I especially like the shorts.
I can smell spring in the air :P Snow turned into mudd :P... finally days are a bit warmer so I'm not freezing anymore and longer...so when I come back from the university it's not dark anymore :P woohoo! Maybe with all that new conditions (besides the mudd) I can make some pictures outside... lovely :)

I am shorty, even shorter than you! I'm only 5'0... maybe 5'1 but I can't take photos like you can, because I haaate the way my face looks on those angles haha. Oh well, looking short isn't so bad. Those shorts are awesome :)

I can see how these shoes are essential for the height, need to get myself a pair. Plus I absolutely love your jewelry, always wearing such a great mixture.

T E X T U R E said...

hooker shorts and monster boots were made for small people like us yay for the shorties.

JessieGoGreen said...

I have the same issue, except im 5'6 and have super looong legs. I look so much taller than I really am, so throw on a pair of 4-5 inch heels and people think im a giant!

Maya said...
