I ordered a load of stuff with crazy sleeves from Zara. I haven’t completely lost the plot; I wanted some interesting ruffles and puffs to add a bit of pizazz to some makeup videos I want to film. I wanted something sculptural, almost, because one of the videos is about skin-finishing and doesn’t really have much going on in the way of colour. So the architectural sleeves were supposed to do the talking and the skin would be all clean and glowing and simple by comparison…
Anyway, enough of my frustrated art director ramblings: here’s the try-on video. I haven’t done a proper fashion vlog in years, so it was a bit of an eye opener to edit the video and see myself getting changed in between shots, when the camera was still running. I say “eye opener” and mean “absolute shock” because my body was a totally different shape than I expected, especially around the middle! Oh well. I’ll start thinking about my health and general lifestyle choices after Christmas, because it seems fruitless to begin now.
Fruitless is a pretty good choice of word there, too. Sums up my diet! Haha.
