Sessun


After noticing that lots of other bloggers use a 50mm lens, I thought I'd quite like to jump on the bandwagon, so earlier this week I ordered one to go with my new camera. It arrived this morning, and I just couldn't resist testing it out straight away... even though it is supposed to be a birthday present for next week (eek, turning 20!). Since taking these photos way back in 2009, I've been itching to do some sort of similar shoot. The floaty white curtains in my room soften the light just perfectly for taking dreamy photos - and it was all wet and gloomy outside so it felt decidedly cosy indoors.

A few weeks ago I purchased this Sessun jumpsuit in the sale section of Urban Outfitters (NOT that I particularly like the idea of buying from UO; most of their stock is horrendously overpriced, and there was a big scandal recently which involved them stealing the ideas of an independent jewellery designer!). Anyway - I'm quite delighted with my purchase, which is a wonderfully high quality chambray jumpsuit with lots of nice details - pretty lined pockets and carefully covered seams, to name a few. Which is what you'd expect from a jumpsuit that originally cost £130(!!!). It seems I was in the right place at the right time - I bought it for a mere £20. Best purchase ever!

I've been waiting for the right occasion to really do it justice, and I'm quite proud of how these photos turned out, especially as I was working awkwardly with a tripod and self timer! Sorry if I come across as really vain - I promise I'm not!
What do you think of them?

These photos are lovely- especially the first one, you're such a natural with a camera! And what a reduction on that jumpsuit; though totally agree with you on the UO front (my bf now refuses to go into UO with me, as I pretty much just walk around picking everything thing up and muttering "I could get that for a third of the price at X shop!")

Gorgeous photos Sadie; for someone who's still getting to grips with their camera, they're even more impressive! I love the jumpsuit too :)

I adore the jumpsuit, Sessun are one of my favourite labels. And you are so right about UO, how pricey are they? The sales are great though, I picked up a navy TBA princess coat reduced from 300 to 50 euros in the sales, no way would I sepnd the full price like that!
