Today on The Daily Candy, Sardi Klein, a longtime NYC photographer and professor at The New School and Pratt, provides Expert Tips for Looking Good in Photos.  The video’s pretty helpful, but if you can’t bear to watch videos on your computer like me sometimes (ugh, it’s more than 3 minutes?!?  I can’t bear it!  <— it’s not, don’t fret), the tips are listed below:

1.  Stand contrapossto.
2.  Chin height (lower chin 1/2 inch or raise chin 1/2 inch).
3.  Relax your fingers.
4.  Don’t talk.
5.  No harsh lighting.
6.  Always smile.

I dunno Sardi… any advice for a photography novice who’s biggest challenges include finding a perching space that still allows for head-to-toe shots and backdrops that are compositionally interesting but not too distracting from my daily getup?

Dipped out to the mall at lunch today and man, is that the place to go to get noticed.  3 people inquired about my bracelet and 2 about my hat.  I think my lunch date started to roll her eyes towards the end of our adventure!

Is it just me or does this hat resemble Roy Licthtenstein artwork?

Of all the t-shirts in the world, it’s uncanny, coincidental, and serendipitous (*never ironic) I should find this one.  It reads “Good BFFs Are Hard To Find” and boasts a two adorable white puppies, much like my darling Pupsy and Pepsy, who are quite fashion-forward themselves.  Watch them work it in today’s fashion shoot.  And for more of my musings on the colour pink, check out my article at The Daily Get Up!

Harem pants — AKA dhoti pants, genie pants, Aladdin pants, MC Hammer pants — shall I go on?  I’m afraid it only gets worse — are among the trickiest 2009/2010 fashion trends to pull off.  Both Elle and New York Magazine advise women to pair them with heels, which I would agree with… if I had suitable ones.  NY Mag adds, “Indulge in the comfort of harem pants,” which was precisely my intent this morning when I heard the mercury was bulging out beyond 90.

I haven’t exactly caught World Cup fever, but today’s USA v. Algeria game was a momentus one — a win would advance the USA into the winner’s bracket; a draw would leave destiny in the hands of other teams’ W and L columns.  Most importantly, however, my sister would be one of the crazed fans attending the event!  As I dressed this morning, I decided to don red, white, and blue to show my support not so much for the USA team, but my sister’s fervor for them.  At this stage I’d feel like a frontrunner jumping on the futbol trend… but that doesn’t prevent me from cheering GOOOOOOAAAALLLL!  GOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAALLLLLL! with the best of them.

Happy Summer Solstice!  Today is always one of my most favourite days of the year.  The amount of daylight we of the Northern Hemisphere are bestowed is just so generous — solar system, you are far too kind.  One of the bloggers I read asked How Do You Know A Day Is Starting Off On The Right Foot?  If it’s June 21st and the sun is shining, it’s good enough for me.  Even a bad hair day can’t hold me back!

IM Friend: Ha! Can u imagine? I’m such a dirtbag!slob!
WWJilly: ew my hair looks like the gulf of mexico hahahahahaa
IM Friend: Bahahahaahahha! I think its worse! Jk!
