I have been remiss in keeping up my funny blogger poses! After discovering a great new (to me) style blogger, Clarabelle – ♥ she takes her “style with a splash of snark” ♥ – I was delighted in her hiLARious post featuring her take on “The Top 5 Style Blogger Poses.” So I went through recent pics to see how I stack (pose?) up. You can thank me later.
The Standard. This one features an “immaculately dressed blogger [with] one hand firmly planted on her hip with the legs casually bent at the knee for an air of stylish apathy.”
Am I projecting enough ‘stylish apathy’ here?
The Thoughtful Gaze. The facial expression here is the key. I often try to pull this one out, to try and break up my natural instinct to smile insanely whenever a camera is pointed in my direction. Here’s one of my most recent efforts at this classic pose:
Deep thoughts, y’all. “I wonder if it’s too early for a shake at Burgerville… hmmm….”
WTF is on my shoe?! Ah yes, similar to the “cross your legs and contemplate your shoes” pose — one of my personal faves!
Tee hee! My shoes are so cute… why WOULDN’T I be looking at them?!
The Paparazzi. LOL at Clarabelle’s take on this pose: “The key is that he/she should appear acutely unaware of the camera. It has to seem like a random photographer took a photo of said blogger’s impeccably stylish person without her knowledge. No one can know that it was actually her unwilling husband who she dragged away from football to stage the shot.”
My husband is my personal paparazzi.
The Joyful Lean. This one is harder, involving “a large smile and the dramatic arching of the back to add visual intrigue,” and I much rather prefer the “Lean and Laugh” (seen here, 3rd pic down), which involves leaning forward rather than backward. Clarabelle also mentions: “For extra drama, you can pair The Joyful Lean with The Thoughtful Gaze, but that is pretty advanced.” I think that’s too advanced for yours truly.
This is where I lean!
