You make it shine so bright

Funny how blog mates of  mine say they can't take good outfit photos because of the dark days they have on the other side of the world. I find it harder to take photos in the Summer months, because it's so bright. Like these pics taken at one of my photo spots. I find the bright sun makes everything shadowy & washed out. Oh well these pics will have to do. This French 60's frock was found at the WAC sometime last year. The fabric is a light poly-cotton, but it's fully lined with quite a thick lining, which makes it a bit hot (for me anyway) through summer. But with things cooling down a smidge I had the chance to wear it again.

  1. I know exactly what you mean. Direct, bright sunlight, at least, Queensland sunlight, does not a great picture make. But these pics in your autumn frock are delightful! The colours of your frock are divoon and don't even start me on your amazing bag! Hope your enjoying a peaceful weekend my lovely. xoxoxoxoxooxox

  2. You really do sixties so well! But I know what you mean about the linings. I've found a few cool looking sixties shifts in my time but they're usually made with thick stiff fabric and possibly longed as well. What gives? I thought that was suosed to be a time of freedom and liberation? You make the dress look effortless. Yeah, that damn summer sun! It's a photo killer for sure.

    1. That's supposed to be lined not longed. Autocorrect can be kind of annoying but I keep it because it's also hysterical. Xxxxxx Oooooo

  3. What a gorgeous painterly print on your frock! Ahh, I agree with you about strong sunlight, far harder to manage than dim winter conditions for photos, I think. Still, the pics are lovely, and you look beautiful, Leisa. xxx

  6. What a gorgeous dress! I hope that you get to wear it more often. It's still to hot to wear anything lined here, let alone with sleeves. The colours in that beaded bag are perfect, especially that green, and what a fantastic disco ball ring!

  7. Your dress is beautiful, such a lovely, delicate pattern. No sympathy with the sun getting in the way though... I live in Scotland and have no such issues here!

  8. Beautiful frock, beautiful colours. I agree with your photo woes at least if a pic is a little dark you can do simply editing to adjust exposure to brighten it.

  11. I run into that problem during the Summer when I take outfit photos after church when the sun is right overhead. (I could get up earlier and take photos before church, but that has only happened, like twice, ever.) My practical solution is to find some shade to stand under, works much better than waking earlier than I have to on a Sunday. :o)

  12. Can't say I experience such problems very often! Its usually getting a decent photo before it starts raining or gets dark - Northern European problems!
    Love that dress and your accessories are always perfectly coordinated! xxx
