Give some RESPECTFUL fashion/ photography/ post advice to the person that posted before you.

Lookbook is designed for flattering people looks and pics, that's great, but sometimes it could be good to listen to other's advice and opinions just to improve. (If you apply it is up to you)

This can be a good tool for newbies but it's necesary to be courageous enough to listen to critiques and to be sincere yet tactful.

I'm ready..

Your outfits are perfect always and you have great continuity with the three pictures for each look.
The only thing I would suggest is a different back ground once in a while, or even just a different colored wall.
But as I said, nice looks :)

I like your style and I also like your backrounds cause they're different.

I think the only problem would be the qualitiy of the camera(but I have the same :D)

all in all I really like your looks! :)

I think your style is precious. The slightest things such as lighting touch ups on free online websites, like PXILR or PICMONKEY, are grand helps in making your photographs more bold and enchanting. :]

You are just as gorgeous as last time I checked out your LB. I love how you've got a big smile on all the time, and you look especially beautiful in your new (or newish? xD) profile pic.

I especially like the following, out of your more recent looks:
lookbook.nu/look/3607149-Find-me-and-follow-me-through-corridors-refectories
lookbook.nu/look/3487557-summer-breeze-makes-me-feel-fine

And I love your hair in lookbook.nu/look/3623991-Something-outrageous-bout-that-evening-sky

I've not really anything bad to say. Pile on more bracelets in looks where your wrists are out?

We don't mind how long you've been around LB, but if you've good advice we'll still value your opinion :D

I'm not knowledgable about photography but like you said, some of your looks are shot in bright daylight and it looks very harsh, but this is only 1 or 2 looks, and the important thing is still the clothes. Most of your looks, I think the photography is absolutely fine.

One can be super stylish and never wear heels, so I wouldn't worry about that :3

Maybe wear sunglasses? It's a barrier for your eyes to hide behind so maybe you'll feel less awkward, and of course sunnies are good for bright light and will make you squint less.

Give us a smile, and a few bracelets/watches now and again? :3

Your poses are nice when you run your hands through your hair and things; maybe your other poses will look more natural if your arms are less straight? Fling your arms around a bit, twirl around, loosen up :D

Also, may I suggest that when taking photos, you point the camera so it's facing up to you? I think it'll be more flattering and make the most of your height.

One of the main things that I've noticed is that you are looking down alot in your photos. I know that Cass responded with a similar critique about loosening up, but you don't need to hide behind your hair or keep you face down. You're very beautiful!

Your looks are amazing! But I think you have to relax more in the photos! And what about more collage like your first look (it's amazing!)??

I like your photos where you're in the foreground and the trees are noticeably in the background. The ones where it's all together I just didn't think were as strong. Other then that great pics and I love love love your style!

Love the relaxed simplicity of your style, though perhaps you can afford to be more ambitious with your styling and colours.
On your photos, maybe shoot in less harsh light, which will be more flattering.

Hey guys, I would love some feedback!

I already know that my photography isn't quite up to scratch, but I'm having some trouble getting my photo's uploaded onto Lookbook without getting grainy and distorted (does anyone know why this is? I haven't found a relevant thread on the forum yet) and looking like they're just really bad quality. I'm still fairly new at all this and that great with technology :/

You looks are generally very cute, but I feel like cutting off your head really kind of puts a dampener on the nice photography that your looks have. You could maybe turn away your head, use a hat or a cute little sign with the name of your look on it to cover your face with instead if you want to keep anonymity.
Besides that I can't think of much else to say, you have a gorgeous wardrobe. Fanned :)

I think you look better in fitted tees which are looser (but still fitted) rather than tight; more flattering. I also find trainers more fitting to wear with shorts and t-shirts rather than heeled boots which are too formal.
I see you like crossing your legs, which is a nice pose, but try keeping your feet closer together when crossed?
Your recent looks are quite dark but the monitor i'm on is dark anyway. Maybe have the light lighting you up from the side rather than the back. The photos taken outside are nicest.


Dear next poster, I love really in-depth critiques.

HI Cass! I absolutely love that you are very adventurous with colors. And I do love your style! I think they deserve more hypes, but the problem is you don't put too much effort in the photographs themselves. I think you should show your pretty face too, or switch up the shooting location sometime. :)

Izumi, your style is so lovely and well put together, it's darling! I just fanned you haha, but in the way of Critiques, some of your backgrounds/locations can get a bit distracting, maybe they look a bit too casual for specifically -lookbook- photos? But other than that, I think your looks are great :)
Next commenter - be as fearless as you like, I love this thread :)

Hmmm, not much criticism to give actually, I love your style! Maybe try smiling a bit more, you've got a sweet smile that I wish I'd see more often. :D And you've got a lovely figure, but you seem to be layering a lot, especially your top half. Judging by some of your pics you can definitely carry off clothes that showcase your waist and boobs a bit more. Not all the time of course but it seems a shame to hide your figure!

I think you should be careful with the lighting of your pics and also I think you shouldn't put effects on your pics (like frames),I personally think this effects takes attention away from what you are wearing.

Thanks for the critique. I try not to, but sometimes the picture just won't crop correctly. And I don't really want people to see my messy room. But I'm in the process of cleaning my room and making a space to take pictures in. Thank you so much for the helpful critique!

The only negative thing I can say to critique you is the lighting, Most of the looks make you look a bit washed out. It could be the camera you use or the editing software, in any case, just mind it! I love your hair, by the way, it's so cute.


I'm down for critiques! I would love them.

I checked out your looks and I like your style choices and the background, but may I suggest trying out more fitted outfits? You have a beautyful body shape but you're not making the best of it.

your style is great and unique! you look great in colors though, and you wear mostly black. also i feel like your photography is inconsistent. some of the photos are great and clear, but others looks like they may have been take in poor lighting or with a bad camera :/

I really like your looks! They are very clear and well combinated.
I think changing your backgrounds would make your photos more interisting and more inimitable!
Nevertheless, great styles! :)

the photography on your looks above can be more better like you had with Nude Mood and Black In The Wind. I'd avoid taking photos in the night unless the lighting's good. Above all else, I love how you match your clothes, all are well combine:)
