I’m a big fan of outdoor fashion photography à la The Clothes Horse. But I'm also quite a wimp when it comes to cold weather - which is why I've lately taken most pictures indoors.
But when it comes to showing tweed I really had to overcome my inner wuss. Tweed evokes pictures of horses, hounds and rifles (and ideally a rambling English mansion) in me, but since I was a bit short on these accessoires the hedge had to do. The costume is one of my diy projects; I made it by cutting up an old coat I bought in an Oxfam (thrift) store. Theoretically I love it, but practically I rarely wear it because it's scratchy as hell.
Why is it tweed today? Because I've become a tweeter (or twitterer?)… Anyway, I've finally managed to activate my twitter account. I signed up ages ago but 140 characters never seemed enough to have my say and in the end I just forgot about it. I'm a total novice and really don't know if I will be very entertaining, but I will try my best and be prolific. You can find me as SabinePsynopsis and if anyone wants to communicate with me please leave your twitter name and I will follow you.
But back to fashion – What’s your stand on tweed? Friend or foe? Chanel or Prince Charles? Cool or way too old-fashioned?
