The Best Outfits idea in 2017

On this occasion I want to discuss about the best outfits idea in 2017 I have ever used. and I also want to wish you happy new year 2018, hopefully in this new year all wishes can be achieved soon. A little Story of the year Everybody’s got resolutions on their minds, and I’m no different. Add to it the fact that my blogiversary is coming up (which I count as my birthday–at the end of this month–because that was the day I decided to get serious about Mox and Socks, or, as it was known then, Breve e Dolce), and I’ve been thinking hard about what my plans are for the future of this blog. When I first started out, I intended this to be a fun and easy, once-a-month endeavor. I quickly found, though, that I loved being immersed in the blogging world, and discover a passion for photography…

Outfit: Forever Yellow

Forever Yellow Over the weekend, I was spending a lot of time analyzing some of my favorite bloggers’ pictures and trying to figure out just what made them so great. on this occasion I will discuss about Forever Yellow. While they each have distinctive styles, some of the things that struck me were the beautiful composition of each photo as well as the breathtaking use of color. While I have a long way to go before I develop some great composing skills (hi, I’m too much of a ham at the moment), I did figure out a way to really punch up the color in all the right places. For so long, I’ve been de-saturating my pictures, trying to make them look more “vintage,” but I’ve realized how important it is to use color to draw the eye in. After some careful Google research, I learned about the Vibrance slider in…

Outfit: Hurry Down the Chimney

Outfit I don’t know if you guys can tell with my outfit, but these photos were shot with my brand new 50mm lens! I’d been lusting after one for the last few months, and I finally decided to go for it. When I first bought my DSLR back in the spring, I accompanied it with a decent 35mm lens.  I didn’t realize then that a 50mm is much better suited for style blogging, but boy, can I see the difference now. I don’t know much about cameras, but what I do know is that a 50mm makes the background a little blurrier than a 35mm, which means the subject is in sharper focus. It makes a lot of sense that most style bloggers are using 50mm lenses because it helps keep the outfit front and center, so to speak. Are any of you Book of Deer fans?  What’s your favorite collection…

Why I’m Disabling Comments

Disabling Comments Last week, I went on a short break from Mox and Socks, and it was a huge help.  Not only did I have a little more time to relax, but I had some time to think about what I want from this blog.  I think a lot of you know that I struggle with the stress that can come with blogging, and I decided that one way I can reduce that anxiety is by closing down the comments on my future posts. I really, truly, absolutely care about and appreciate the things you say to me whenever I post outfit pictures or tutorials or the like–it means the world that you like what I’m doing and care enough to tell me that. My personal blogging philosophy has, for a long time, included the conviction that I should always respond to and comment back on other people’s blogs.  Finding…
