As a leading member of those under endowed in a region that is unmistakably a right of passage for any woman, I am fully aware of the struggle that one faces when entering the realm of low cut clothing, halter neck dresses and strapless anything. For those who don’t catch my drift, I’m referring to the disadvantages of having a chest that very similarly resembles that of a growing tween.
But how does one channel the 70’s, or more less, Bianca Jagger, without paying homage what she so distinctly passed off as her effortless signature? In the countless hours I spent to trying to choose an outfit that would interpret a fuse of my personal taste and Bianca Jagger’s style , 90% was spent convincing myself to step out of my comfort zone and try rock a piece with a deep neckline. In the end, I took the plunge (pun intended) and went for something I never thought would enter my wardrobe – because you only live once.
In the process of weighing my pros and cons, I came to the conclusion that there really is not a lot to show. Needless to say, this insane pillow-like clutch did allow me cover myself in between takes to deter ‘WTF are you wearing’ looks from strangers going on their morning coffee run. Without it, I’m not sure I’d be brave enough to dare try this promiscuous stunt again.
But to get to the point, A and I finally got around blocking out a Sunday morning to shoot this look for ASOS. With her direction and massive effort in lugging around her super heavy camera kit, we managed to smash this out for the ASOS 70’s Sisters campaign. As a general morning loathing person, it was actually kind of nice to see the city during non-peak times and prance around for a while. But like I said, mornings aren’t really my thing so please excuse the resting b-face.
