JUMPER DRESS: MISSGUIDED | SHOES: MAISON MARTIN MARGIELA MM6 | BAG: ISSEY MIYAKE | SUNGLASSES: PRIMARK | CAP: PAUL & SHARK

Hi! I know it has been a while since my I last posted here… but since I have: I have been on a cruise, done a lot of shopping and turned 21! So I am real woman now. I did spend my birthday at sea and let me tell you that I now know that I have the worst sea sickness ever known to man. Yep, I seen my 21st in with my head down a toilet and not for the right reasons. This being one of the reasons that I cherished the time that my feet spent on solid earth cemented ground but also because of scouting out the best backgrounds for outfit posts! This one was taken in Morocco, easily the best place that I visited on my whole trip and I bought the cutest pair of leather pointy slipper thingies. It wouldn’t be a trip to a medina without buying some legit Moroccan slip ons. Am I right?

Yes, admittedly I was a little warm in this Missguided ribbed jumper dress but it is literally the most perfect item to throw on and it just looks instantly cool – easily my most favourite piece I have in my wardrobe right now and currently on sale! It is made from quite a thick neoprene fabric though so I would recommend not to wear it when your walking around North Africa.

Also can we just appreciate these MM6 mesh high top sandals that I am convinced were a gift from the gods. I just love them. It was love at first sight, I might of even pushed a kid over when I seen them across the shop, I just had to get them and get them fast. That didn’t happen, I didn’t push a kid over but I did get the shoes and I’m sure you will see them here quite often! Please share my enthusiasm for these shoes, I’m sure you will.

Please let me introduce to you my new Issey Miyake Bao Bao bag – the perfect birthday present but I think now I might be an addict so if anybody wants to buy me any more, any colour any shape I am not too fussed I just need more. I think I have Miyake madness at the moment because I am so obsessed with pleats and this bag and yeah, Pleats Please. Literally. If anybody feels the same then there is a Modern Japanese exhibition currently on at Manchester Art Gallery so a lot of Miyake designs. Its worth a visit!

Just a quick side note about the sunglasses: The best Dior dupes ever from Primark for like £2.50, I mean come on £350? Not a chance! Im just waiting for them to bring out some rose gold ones because why not? £2.50. Also, ngl I robbed the cap from my dad.

Sorry for rambling on! I do have more outfits to put up from my holiday so please follow me on Bloglovin’ to keep up to date with those. I also have a ton of post ideas but if there is anything in particular you would like to see or read then let me know!

STYLING: PORTFOLIO WORK

 

So here are the finished images from a photoshoot that I recently styled and creatively directed. I love the clean crisp minimal aesthetic and the amount of negative space paired with the oversized boxy silhouettes of the clothes.


All images were edited by me.

STYLING: BOYFRIEND SERIES

 

 

 

To build up a styling portfolio I thought it would be a fun little project to “style my boyfriend” and document it here so MASSIVE THANKS to my partner in crime for agreeing to help me out with this! Hopefully this twist on the classic “OOTD” will keep things interesting, especially since this poor pharmacy student has no clue about clothes/blogs/photography. I just like to make him feel uncomfortable. 

I have an upcoming photoshoot this Sunday so keep updated with behind the scenes on my social media channels. I will post the finished shots here when I can!

Some backstage pictures from a shoot I did yesterday – yep these
pictures are all taken on my little iPhone 5s for prime instagram
opportunities so its only right I threw in a full length mirror selfie.

I will eventually filter through the finished shots & the finished article:
a look book for our fictional clothing brand North.
