When I was packing for the NYC trip, I tried to take only interchangeable outfits that won’t use too much luggage space. This rocker chic outfit on one of the first I unpacked and I wore it to the Broadway Fathom of the Opera!
What I can tell you about shooting in New York in the evening is very hard. We don’t use flash, and I prefer natural light photography so you probably already guessed that we had to stroll around the city to find that perfect spot. Once we discovered one and were a bit more than half of the shoot a security guard came by and reminded that you couldn’t take pictures on private properties, which this place happened to be one, but he was very kind and let us finish the photoshoot 🙂
As for my rocker chic outfit, it is something that is “dare to wear“ for me just because of the items combination: leather jacket, patented boots, a dress and a hat – not something you would expect me to wear! Surprisingly, this outfit combination was so comfortable (even for the growing belly) that I felt excellent in it and would probably repeat it, but with a coat because it’s cold outside.
One of the rule I stick by when in doubt wear red lipstick. I didn’t want to overpower this rocker chic style with accessories and heavy makeup, so I went with the clean makeup look and bold red lipstick. Looking back at all of the photos now I’m happy I decided to do so.
What are your thoughts on the travel outfits? Would you wear something similar?
