Sing along mocking bird, you don't affect me

Hey guys! Here are some medium format shots my uni friend Melissa shot of me around the Portobello area of London on 23rd Feb. It was really fun shooting this, we had various different denim items for the shoot (ones labelled are mine and the rest are hers) that was based around the subject of a denim campaign. Unlike the weather that we're having now, back then it was quite chilly which came to our advantage as the wind has brought my hair to life in some shots, which I do rather like! I've only ever shot on medium format briefly in the studio at uni before, and that was digital, but shooting with Melissa that day really inspired me to get going with medium format on film when I go into my second year. We can rent out the cameras for free so really there should be nothing stopping me! I'm so looking forward to getting taught about how to use those cameras again when I start back, even though I've been taught before, my memory needs refreshing!

Catch a moth, hold it in my hand

 Jumper: Lazy Oaf Dress: Topshop Vintage Dr Martens: hand-me-downs

These photos were taken against one of the cool nearby locations I spotted when I first came to London for uni and thought 'ah that would be a cool backdrop for outfit photos!', so finally I have gotten round to shooting at least one look infront of it :') This jumper is another piece I bought back in a Lazy Oaf sale, I love the design and the pops of red, it's also super comfortable and soft on the inside! I also like how it's cropped so you can put it on top of dresses and such without hiding much of the dress, like a lot of jumpers would do.

London Fashion Week Day 3 Outfit

Dress: Lazy Oaf Vintage jacket: charity shop Mary Jane Platforms: UNIF Sunglasses: Primark

Last February London Fashion Week blog post! This was the last day of lfw I attended and wow this outfit got the most attention of them all, so many people snapped me in my beloved bones dress that I bought back in a Lazy Oaf store sale for only £10, such a bargain considering it would have been £65. I love to wear this dress on a night out but it's also fun to dress it up casually for the day, like here in my oversized jacket, teamed with these platorms that are like a size too small and killer to walk in! I bought them online so didn't know my size would fit my feet so small :( Originally I was going to take them back and swap them for a size up but I couldn't resist wearing them for fashion week so there goes that idea... ha! Literally towered over everyone in these as I'm 5'9" and these add an extra 5 inches! Crazy. Anyhoo I hope you all like it!

London Fashion Week Day 1 Outfit

Vintage jacket: Portobello Market Dress: Motel Rocks
Hoodie: Dirty Harry Vintage Scarf & Dr Martens: hand-me-downs

So this was my outfit to Day 1 of London Fashion Week 14/05/2014. I had to wrap up because of the cold and rain and at first wasn't that keen on the clashing prints and didn't want to be wearing this scarf with this outfit, but when looking back at the photos, I actually don't mind it ^.^
But yeah I don't know why the first few photos have a yellow tinge on here, the files aren't actually like that but hey-hoe...

Here's a pic from the day with Kayla and Leanne

Pam Hogg Autumn/Winter 2014

Here are some shots I took at the Pam Hogg AW14 fashion show, titled 'Courage', the themes explored that of gay rights and protest showing, whilst models entered the catwalk carrying boards showing statements such as ‘This is a dedication to Pussy Riot’ and ‘This collection is not for sale’, embodying the spirit of Pussy Riot, and also the punk movement. I love it!

The photos aren't that of great quality as it was hard getting my lens to correctly focus from the back, which was pretty frustrating but here are the most successful ones of the bunch I took. There were about 10 of us bloggers all huddled at the back trying to get some decent shots and we were all pretty disappointed with our blurred outcomes. It was also a shame because we were supposed to be second row but there was a mix up. Despite this though I enjoyed the show thoroughly! There were some really crazy and beautiful outfits, with plenty of colour. I even found out later on that my friend Maxine walked in the show, unfortunately I didn't manage to get a photo of her though, but she looked awesome in one of the really colourful bodysuits! Many thanks to Kayla for the invite ^.^
