(Zara top, vintage shorts, eBay shoes)

My go with bright prints. Got these shorts today and I am in love, the perfect vertical yellow stripe, and a length that i can play around with. I clashed it with a horizontally pink striped sweater I got in the Zara sale.
and OH thanks for asking those are my new ugly shoes, I like to think of them as a mix between the new JC Lita's and the black Wang mules. (I'll go into this further at another time).

Enjoy!

Photos of me in my room in Leeds, taken by Jessica Ruff for her blog which focuses on creative people in their creative space: their home. I think it's such a great idea, (and a good excuse to snoop around people's rooms), and I'm so honoured that she chose to feature me. Jess herself is a great photographer.

I think I keep neglecting pretty-photo-find posts as I now have a Tumblr, so they tend to just end up there. But I miss them. So here is one. just some random things that I like furry skirts and beanies, a white sunlit room and a crop top white t-shirt.
It was my birthday yesterday and I've got some new yums to show you, stay put.

WHITE.FLOWER.

Photobucket

Photobucket
(Vintage everything)

More white, more light, more shadows. Works well on clothes, not so well on face.
Trying to find a more 'normal' way to wear these jeans, think with very simplistic top and accessories it works best. The jeans are quite big (that's vintage for you), so I tend to roll them over and hope the outcome is a I know they're too big for me but I don't care kind of vibe. Or boyfriend jeans, with flowers on.... Hm. Maybe not.
On a more definite note, I love the shimmery light-reflecting-ness of this top; so easy to wear.

Pieces for summer, a classic white bra, a new favourite light weight Pierre Cardin jumper that I found at a vintage kilo sale (and have been living in), and a satin strapped blue top that I found in the depths of my wardrobe.

BRIGHT.AND.STRIPE.

Photobucket

Photobucket
(Vintage sillk trousers, shirt courtesy of Ark, Banana Republic necklace)

Been taking lots of photos recently, as I said I should, and creating a kind of 'photo diary', and I've come to see that what I love most is light, sunlight, and the shadows it creates.
That's why I decided to shoot this in front of the perfect blank canvas: a white sheet in the sunlight, for anything and everything to create a shadow onto.

Also loving brights and stripes at the moment. These trousers a great and silky and stripey so they fit the bill, but also a little shapeless, hence all the dramatic posing.

NINETIES.DOTS.

Photobucket

Photobucket
(Vintage dress and boots, Arc Jumper)

Had to show you these babies asap. Perhaps the ugliest, yet the best, boots I ever bought in a charity shop. I think they come from the actual nineties, which makes me love them even more, as I am a nineties baby, so it's apt that these babies come from then too.

SHEER.PINK.

Photobucket
(Topshop Jeans, Vintage top, Banana Republic necklace)

In love with this almost-sheer simple top at the moment, and love contrasting it with brights such as these jeans. Sadly, the weather isn't quite up to this kind of dressing at the moment and I tend to end up with a big ugly rain jacket over everything I wear, should I chose to leave the house.

News to note: it's my birthday in a week, I'm moving house at the end of the month, need to find dresses for a multitude of birthdays coming up, and I start interning at Notion Magazine in three weeks. How time flies when you're doing nothing.

Had totally forgotten how much I love Tank Magazine. I picked up the Summer 2011 issue and within several hours had devoured the entire thing (with my eyes sillies, I didn't eat it).
On top of it all, I was very happy to see the one of my favourite photgraphers, Viktor Vauthier, had shot the main feature with Edie Campbell and got the cover. I felt like a proud fan.

On further proud notes, my sister (work below) has been asked to intern for Diane Von Furstenberg in New York. Jammy Lucky girl.

The result of my sister's, Jessica Hoareau, look book for her final collection.
I'm so impressed by it (and very proud), I love the simplicity of the looks, yet they are so detail focused that they are in fact anything but simple.
Check out her website here.

You might also recognise the model, Tess Ward, one of my closest friends, who was in the Just Another Magazine shoot I did a few weeks back.
