@shanklin what camera/film did you use for the second one? I really like the soft feel the image has. With my AE-1 it seems that I am unable to produce such a feeling because the aperture and shutter speed are so finicky.

I used ektar 100 with a canon ae1p. I went back in PS/Lightroom and did some minor PP and also added a 5% white overlay. Btw, tripods and long exposures are your friend blushing. The longer the exposure, the softer the light. Crank up your aperture to like 5.6/6.3, and then throw the cam on a tripod, and adjust the shutter speed based on your meter readings. Also try shooting during the golden hour, the first and last hour during sunset and sunrise, because that def helps a lot too. In that shot it was around 5, so the light was kinda harsh, but the blinds acted as a diffuser which gave it a nice soft look.

alright. thanks. right now I use the auto aperture for 90% of my shots. would you suggest choosing the aperture by myself?

Kodak Portra 100, best film for realistic colours, produces great skin tones for portrait work too.
