In the past month, I’ve modelled in a couple of photoshoots for covers and editorials of ‘Witch Way Magazine’, styled and directed by my fabulous friend Daina Renton. The other models (Maddy, Cait, Kirsten, Lisa) and I were photographed by Marisa Bruce and Daina herself, and the wonderfully weird hair and make-up was courtesy of Cait Owens.

On Sunday I met up with Alice Cruickshank, gorgeous red-haired retro fashionista, who blogs over at Twenty Something City. We decided to go on a stroll around the hidden graffiti-laden treasures of Edinburgh and team up to take some street-style shots for our respective blogs. The theme was retro, with Alice in her 70’s flared jumpsuit and me in my 90’s polka-dot jumpsuit! I teamed mine (from Snooper’s Paradise in Brighton) with a Monki oversized denim jacket (similar here), classic vintage Converse hi-tops, some silver hoop earrings and Forever 21 sunglasses.
Last Thursday I had the absolute pleasure of taking part in a new photoshoot for fashion brand I Dream Of Shapes, which is soon to launch in Edinburgh. The idea was to get together some wonderful local Bloggers (Cera Kamonji, Jennifer Brownlie, Katie Williams, Emily Campbell, Kimberley Grahame and Sophie Middleton) to model these beautiful bespoke designs and show a whole range of body shapes and personalities! I hope you enjoy the photos as much as I enjoyed the event (and completely fell in love with these super-high waisted trousers)! Big thank you to Lucie for organising this <3 (more…)
Symmetry is nice. I love it within architecture (inherited from my Mum’s love of symmetrical houses) and nature, and of course in beauty, as I’ve always longed for a face that wasn’t ‘blessed’ with a crooked nose and misaligned jaw!
However, when it comes to fashion, A-symmetry is the new way to dress.
Much cooler than the status quo, styling looks together that don’t quite line up is effortless. Anything from mismatched earrings (although maybe shoes would be too far!) to a draped dress, a-symmetry is easy as pie.
A few recent purchases have now become wardrobe staples, and it was only yesterday that I realised the a-symmetrical trend has infiltrated by style in a huge way.
Last week I was sent a gorgeous belt by under-the-radar fashion retailer Gant courtesy of Betty & Bee. I rarely accesorise with belts either as a functional or decorational piece, but as Betty & Bee said “They’re not the most exciting of garments, but girl we need them! Not only they can add a bit of va-va-voom to an outfit, they can dress up a classic LBD, draw attention to your waist and join separates together”.
