WELCOMEWelcome to the fashion blog of Christine Anne Libbey! When I'm not writing novels (or while I'm writing novels...uh oh!) I love to dream about beautiful clothing. So why not turn a dream into a reality and start a fashion blog? That's what I did, and here you are! Hope you enjoy a little bit of my world.
Dress: A.L.C (Don’t worry, I bought it on super sale at Neiman Marcus!)
Having a fashion blog just isn’t fun anymore when you have a great boyfriend. Why would you want to be in pictures alone? It’s just not a good photo if your boyfriend isn’t in it! Now all the men in the world (and lots of women) just rolled their eyes, but it’s true! Having children must be even worse…why would you take a photo of anything but your children? I get that, and I think it’s super cute!
As far as my blog is concerned, I’ve just been too busy to even go shopping let alone take photos in clothes and post them. But I will try to be better starting right now! Fashion blogging does help me be my best… I eat healthier, I go to the gym more, I take better care of my skin, and I dress better on a day to day basis which helps me make a good impression on people. So blogging for me is not entirely an exercise in pure vanity (but close…very close hahahahahah!)
So while I work on getting my life sorted out, I will put up thousands of photos of me and Nick. A few weeks ago, Nick and I went on a lot of short trips and I hired Groupon photographers to document our travels. A post on that soon! Enjoy
More photos of me and Nick in La Jolla, San Diego…on the next page! Continue reading
I really wanted to try a girlish jumper, so when I saw this navy jumper from Oasis on sale I had to have it! It’s cute and comfortable. I recently weighed myself and this summer I gained 7 pounds on top of my already gained 5 pounds…making me 12 pounds overweight. So I have some work to do. These photos are the last of summer in Denmark and then we switch over to Los Angeles photos, and it’s always summer in L.A.!!
Yes, I got all dressed up…I got the picnic all ready…I got Nick to drive us all the way to the beach…and when I went to turn on the camera…I realized the battery was still in the charger back home. But on the bright side, Nick was kind enough to use the Iphone. I had been wondering if the Iphone would ever take a good photo of me because so far I have had little luck taking a good ‘selfie’…but over 160 photos later and these turned out ok. The Iphone really does not like my face, but I’m dedicated to finding my ‘angles’ so that I can always take a good photo with it.
A few weeks back, I played Petanque for the first time. It’s a nice game for a night out with friends. Just competitive enough to be interesting, but doesn’t take too much brain power so you can focus on conversations (or taking photos, which is what I was doing hehe.)
Photoshop Stat Alert! Why did I close my eyes?! Such a nice photo otherwise.
Last Sunday June 17th I had the wonderful opportunity to attend a polo match at Kokkedal Slot. Kokkedal Slot was the inspiration for Baltazar’s castle in my novel ‘Nordic Nights.’ This was the first time I had visited in real life and it lived up to my expectations! What a lovely place, next time I will surely have lunch upon the terrace.
The Kooples Dress (here)
The dress where every photo looks good. There’s something about the neckline and the color and the fabric that complements my face. The two brands I trust for always being on point with exceptional quality are Joie and The Kooples. They are pricey, but the secret is to try on all the clothes at the beginning of the season, make a list of what you want, then wait for the sale. You may only get one piece a season, but really what more do you need? Continue reading
Gown: Asos Petite (here)
The gown is lovely but from a distance it makes me look frumpy due to the ruffles hitting my waist. It’s fine for headshots but not for full body shots. I need far more waist definition for full body shots. I’m searching for a gown by August, so this is very important. Back to the drawing board!
