secondhand dress from Texas

robe made by me
vintage sunglasses

This time of year, every year I get a weird craving for wearing white... white floaty things. This is closest I have... prepare for a week of white out. OH, also I somewhat accidentally dyed my hair purple, its washed out to blue and this is the result... I enjoy it. :)

gifted shirt
Clio Peppiatt skirt
platform Converse
wings from San Diego
gifted tiara customised by me

Black lipstick makes anything and everything look a hundred times cooler, especially with this hair. These are a few snaps of what I wore to the Female Matters exhibition curated by young designer Clio Peppiatt (my boss for the summer) and Ione Gamble of Polyester zine. Amazing feminist art, lots of friends/people I admire, and all in support of anti-FGM charity The Dahlia Project. Fashion is great sometimes. :)

Topshop skirt (shortened by me)
vintage top
K's denim jacket (embroidered patches made by her)
K's Ashley Williams jumper
vintage top and sunglasses
McQ shoes
bag from Singapore
hat from a pound shop
Tatty Devine necklace

Now that I've finished uni for the year you'd think I'd have more time for blogging but London life is crazy busy (no complaints). So I finally made it all the way to white hair! AND I LOVE IT! And everyone else loves it too. And I think it makes me look more tanned.... To be honest, after all I've put my hair through (something like six rounds of bleach, wut), it's in pretty good condition. Yeah it's fluffy but come on, it was fluffy naturally (don't brush curly hair). :)

Boater

Asos jacket and skirt
top made by me
River Island shoes
vintage sunglasses
old straw boater
H&M earrings


This is an outfit I really liked but didn't get chance to shoot myself (you can probably tell by the vastly different photography style) - these photos were taken by the lovely lady (oops, didn't get her name) behind the Street Style Carousel out in Spitalfields last weekend. The weather has been beautiful (minus a few notably horrible days) so I have been breaking out the summer straw hats! :)

original 1940s Balmain dress (not mine sadly)
vintage velvet turban
old velvet gloves
Topshop heels
H&M earrings

I've slowly been repairing this beautiful 1940s Pierre Balmain dress for a friend. Many hours of delicate hand-sewing later, all the rips and tears are fixed so how could I not shoot it? Walking around where I live at 9am in an evening dress and heels towing a tripod was a somewhat weird experience, but worth it for these shots (before a confused security guard told me to go away).

robe from Manchester Chinatown
H&M shirt and dungarees
River Island jacket
Underground creepers
vintage sunglasses
bag from India
embarrassing Christmas-themed socks

This was a pretty basic (for me) scrud life outfit. Scrud life is on the move, packing light, sitting on pavements, hanging out and being chill. Yesterday I stumbled across some very photogenic houses in Notting Hill - now I finally know where everyone takes their Landan blog photos! If I lived there I'd be so annoyed... I literally had to wait my turn to photograph here! Also, I'm still working towards being white but I'm currently really enjoying being blonde/yellow, especially when I find matching surroundings! :)

I's vintage dress
mother's jacket (fluff sewn on by me of course)
vintage sunglasses
Ashley Williams scarf
bag made by E

Ever since I discovered that there's an area of London called Little Venice (I know right, who's ever heard of it??), I've been wanting to visit. May bank holiday weekend was perfect as all the canalboats were decorated and there were kids everywhere and we may have spent a good half an hour eating candy floss and watching a clown perform. :)

Hotdogs for preztels

Tinned Bananas bodysuit
silk trousers from a charity shop
Gap denim jacket
River Island straw hat (on a ribbon around my neck)
mother's belt
McQ shoes

So these trousers... they fit perfectly and what a coincidence I found them since I purchased several metres of raw silk not too long ago and was thinking of making some for myself... Ok yeah, the big deal here is that I bleached my hair. I'm finally (about 7 years later!) going white! Hopefully. This multicoloured yellow/orange is but a stop on the way and it was kind of accidental... but I quite like it to be honest. And it's super amusing when my friends don't recognise me on the street. :)
