Fashion Show Photos











I promised photos from the fashion show last night, it looked amazing. I only have a few photos at the moment but will upload the rest when I have them. The first look is Dries Van Noten, second Erdem and the three gowns are Temperly London. 
I bought a Polaroid camera a long time ago but only just got around to buying film. I really love the way the photo came out even though it's not quite what I expected.

Feather Skirts and Fashion Shows



This evening my work is hosting our big fashion show of the year at the National Gallery in Edinburgh. It is a very classy and fashionable event. We will be showing new collections from Dries Van Noten, Erdem, Temperly London, Roksanda Ilincic, Diane Von Furstenberg, Missoni and so many other great designers. I really look forward to doing this fashion show and I will hopefully have photos from the event to show you tomorrow.

My Styling Work


 Hola!! Sorry I haven't blogged in a while, I have been on holiday in Barcelona. It was so much fun and although it was crazy hot, I have returned home without a tan. 

I'm not doing an outfit post today because I can't find anyone to take a photo for me and my dog is still unable to use a camera. However, it has been a while since I posted some of my styling work that I've done with Lindsay Campbell. Some of this was done ages ago now but I thought you might like to see it anyway. 

The photos above were taken for an editorial piece which will be used in Spectrum magazine at some point, the theme was animal print lingerie. We used eight models on this shoot but I only have a few of the photos to show you. 





The photos above were taken for a watch company in Dubai called 1915. These images will be used as their Autumn/Winter advertising campaign and will be everywhere from buses to billboards in Dubai. The male model in the photos was perhaps the most beautiful person I have ever met, even better looking in person!



The photos above are from Bridges shopping centre's Spring/Summer advertising campaign. All the styling had to appeal to a young market. 



We took the images above on the same day as the ones for Bridges shopping centre. These ones were taken for White Rose shopping centre in Leeds and were used as their Spring/Summer campaign. These ones were styled to appeal to a slightly older market. 



These photos are part of Van Dal shoes' Autumn/Winter campaign. They were looking for a campaign that was slightly edgier than what they had before but would still appeal to an older market. This photo shoot took place over 2 days. On the first day all the photos were taken in a studio and the next day they were taken in an old mansion. I only have these photos at the moment but as soon as I have the others I will post them because it was a really lovely photo shoot.

Statues in Modern Clothing






Last week I was very busy at work and ran out of time to blog so I'm really sorry for the lack of posts. 
I came across these photos today on Coggles Facebook page. If you don't follow them on Facebook, you really should because they are always posting great things. These photos are from a collection called Classic Statues in Modern Clothing (does what it says on the tin!) and are by Alexis Persani. I love them because they are humorous but also very clever. 

So my outfit, shorts and sandals_Topshop, jacket_J Crew, scarf_McQueen and I made the t-shirt.

First Time











I want to be this girl ^^







I think that when I am 40 I will dress like this all the time, for now though it's just for when I'm working. My parents were in London at the weekend watching the Olympics ( I was green with envy!) I soon cheered up though when they gave me this special Olympics Ted Baker bag. The best bit is the countries listed down the side of the bag, love it. I may not be very good at sport but I am going to be carrying this bag around like I just won a medal. 

Solestruck, one of the best shoe retailers in existence ever, have launched a magazine. I have added some of the photos because they are genuinely the most creative and inspiring magazine spreads I have seen in a long time. There is so much good stuff in the magazine and it is available for everyone to look at here! Go - do it now.

Ab Fab





My computer isn't playing nicely today so I couldn't upload my photos properly! 
I bought LOVE magazine today and when I was glancing through it I found this advert for Alexis Bittar. I think it could be my favourite advert of all time (is it sad to have a favourite ad campaign?!) so much so that I think I might frame it. Let me know if you like it as much as I do!

Unexpected Sunday


Do you ever have days which are filled with really unexpected, nice surprises? They are usually very rare but today was definitely one of those days. Firstly, I got new fun shoes (even though I have no money...oops!). Then my neighbour had tickets so see Michael McIntyre tonight but was unable to go so my sister and I went to see him tonight - he was brilliant! And finally, my parents came home from watching the olympics in London and brought me a present of a special olympics Ted Baker bag - amaaaaaazing. So I am a very, very happy girl today. Hope that your Sunday has been fun too!

August



I can't really think of anything to post about today because the Olympics are so exciting - I am finding it difficult to stop watching long enough to type! Today I am so proud to be British, the GB team have had an amazing day at the Olympics, with hopefully many more great performances to come. 

I don't usually like posting black and white photos on my blog because I think it is important to show the colours of my outfits, however, there is something about this outfit which was calling out for B&W.
