If you are not familiar with the “Inspired by…” series, click here for an explanation.
But short story even shorter, each month I choose a seasonal ad and try to recreate the models look with colors I already own.
Dressing up and awkward posing included!
This months choice was requested by my favorite Italian blogger Carol in a page, who suggested I´d do this one because “I already had the hair” (original quote).
Now my hair may have a slight resemblance, but I did lack the wind machine, blue skies and the defined jaw line (I am 31 weeks pregnant after all), so please keep that in mind when looking at my attempt.
To make things easier to recreate, I decided to film my
struggles technique this time. The voice over was necessary because I knew from previous experience that there might have been some swearing in the process. Not sure if I like the concept of voiceover though, tell me what you think in the comments.
