Floodlit {and another giveaway!}.

(Top - this is a plain tee from Cubic Collective, white ruched skirt/sequin clutch - HELLO PARRY, kimono - Sportsgirl, shoes - Jeffrey Campbell) 
                                                                                              Photos by John Li. 
I think one of the hallmarks of a prodigious photographer is their ability to negotiate lighting to add to the tone of the image in any situation - a skill I certainly struggle with at the moment! As you can probably tell, I had serious difficulties with regulating the exposure in these images. The generously sunny afternoon combined with limited time to adjust camera settings meant a series of images flooded with light ... besides the fact that my outfit is almost completely washed out, I actually think it's quite whimsical, don't you? 
I also recently reached my 100th blog post (yay!) so to commemorate the occasion, I have collaborated with the delightful online store HELLO PARRY who is generously giving the ruched skirt featured in this post to one of my beautiful readers! It's such a beautifully versatile skirt - I guarantee this is a worthy investment of your time. :) 
                                                                          How to enter:




(1) Like Hello Parry on Facebook here or on Instagram (@helloparry)
(2) Follow frocks & other frivolities on Facebook, Bloglovin', or GFC
(3) Leave a comment on here or the Facebook wall with your email so I can contact you if you're the lucky winner! 

And yes, of course you will have an extra entry if you share the Facebook photo. <3

Open for international readers, closes June 6.

Good luck, pretty little things! 

Much love, Mandy. xx

    Mandy I really like the exposure, at first I thought it was your intention because it looks so light and ethereal and compliments your entire gorgeous ensemble! What a happy mistake I guess! I love it regardless, it looks so amazing!

  44. Hey hey

    Love the over exposure of these pics. It's funny that sometime "incorrect" photographic techniques can actually be more aesthetically pleasing. I'm particularly fond of inordinately high contrast levels. So sue me.

    Did the giveaway stuff :)
