The first month of the year has flown by and the season of love is approaching, pardon my cliche. This month has been filled with tons of outfit pictures and flat lays on my Instagram.
“A flat lay is a picture of items or things taken from the top so as to give an impression of them laying flat on the ground i.e two dimensional.”
January began with a back to school flat lay. This flat lay showcases my back to school essentials: a notebook and agenda from Chapters, my go to store for all school must haves, my Forever 21 backpack, lotion, pen, eyebrow dip from Anastasia Beverley Hills Cosmetics, Lipstick from MAC Cosmetics and my Burberry shades. Flat lays always look better when you add different types of products to your picture. If this flat lay was just books and a backpack, it wouldn’t be as interesting.
The first flat lay is my “night time” picture that shows my Aritzia bralette, a poetry book, Victoria’s Secret lotion, a quote picture that I bought from Chapters and a plant to make the picture look more appealing. My second flat lay showcases my workout tights that I bought from Urban Planet and my Tiffany Blue Nike shoes.
Here’s a look at yesterday’s flat lay where I took a picture of my new fur slides that I purchased from Garage Clothing. These slippers are trending like crazy, especially the Rihanna ones. However, these Garage slippers are just $24.95 each and available in the two colours above.
Another flat lay from yesterday is my Monday outfit. My navy top is from American Apparel, styled with an H&M chain necklace. On the side I’ve shown my Canon camera, Kat Von D contour palette, MAC lipstick and Sephora Highlighter.
And there you have my flat lays for January. Happy (almost) February guys!
