Lookbook: ShopStyle by PopSugar ~ We Shop Style

Today's lookbook post is a little different as it's part of the ShopStyle by POPSUGAR "We Shop Style" print campaign. I received this background and the t-shirt in the mail to create my own lay down, like the ones in the new campaign for the ShopStyle commercial. I love using ShopStyle for finding products by a variety of brands all in one place. Don't you just love this cool idea for a campaign? Using flash came in handy this time around.

We took these photos in my living room because it gave us the best space, lighting and height, which were all super crucial to achieve this lay down. Have you ever tried taking photos laying down? It's not easy. My concept was outfits inspired by hats, since hats are my favorite accessory at the moment. The pieces I included from my closet are:

♥ Ruffle layer dress from the Zac Posen for Target collection a few years back. The ruffles speak to my girly side.
♥ My personalized and customized Samsung Galaxy phone case that features a few looks from the Muse.
♥ Jeffrey Campbell Roxie platforms--the cutouts make them the coolest shoes I own.
♥ This oxblood colored Forever 21 fedora that you've seen a million times on the Muse.
♥ These Nasty Gal petal scalloped shorts because they add necessary texture and come in my fave color: blue
♥ My all-time favorite blazer has to be this H&M baroque piece that I've had for years and make any excuse to wear.
 My new texture obsession: anything quilted, like these Mossimo quilted ponte pants from Target
♥ I only take these purple Gucci nameplate pumps out on special occasions--like shooting a lay down for ShopStyle
♥ The 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target mini satchel is my new everyday bag, and the ShopLately love scarf adds softness.
♥ This nolita print Prabal Gurung for Target shirt dress is definitely the most colorful thing I own, and it always reminds me of the amazing P!nk concert that I wore it to for my birthday earlier this year.
♥ Whenever I wear these Jeffrey Campbell spiked heels, people always stop and comment on them no matter where I am. But the spikes are no joke. I could seriously hurt someone with those things.
♥ Going some place special? Then I'll bust out the Michael Kors jet set tote. It has jet set in the title so clearly it's meant for plane rides to island vacations, like visiting my home country of Jamaica.
♥ And last but not least, the black fedora that inspired this whole thing. It definitely started me on my hat (over) indulgence. I habit I have yet to break.

Wearing: | Ray-Ban folding wayfarers | ShopLately Lily Wang necklace | ShopStyle Everlane t-shirt c/o | Forever 21 striped denim trousers | Shoplately Bling magazine clutch | Forever 21 d'orsay flats | Daniel Wellington Classic Winchester Lady watch | Starfish bracelet and butterfly ring | Electro Baby Lips Pink Shock by Maybelline |

Came out great doll! Love the stripy trousers. It isn't very easy to take your picture this way, gravity pulls your face in a weird way, but once you get the angle right, it becomes easier. I think you did an awesome job!! Love all the shoes :)) Have a great week xx

Mari said...

I love the outfit, especially since I love vertical stripes for pants! I've never tried taking pictures laying down, and I'd imagine that it's pretty difficult! You look so natural though! It's great! I love the way your picture looks too with your clothing!
