Writing this on a rainy Tuesday which is quite ironic but this (was) a wonderful little outfit for the pretty Autumn sunshine we’ve (had been) kind of having, when it wasn’t throwing it down. I worked with a new photographer I’d not worked with before, Olivia Bossert a few weeks on a film test shoot and I’m so pleased with how the images turned out. I love shooting on film, that retro look you can never quite recreate with lightroom or photoshop, trust me, I’ve spent HOURS and (too much money than I care to mention) on presets trying to. Sometimes if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, film photography is still alive and well and I love that. Remember when you were little and you’d take your holiday snaps (from your disposable camera) to Boots and were so impatient to get them developed ? Instead of agonising over hundreds of photos you have 36 to choose from. Saying that I still can’t decide which I like the most! Honestly I am the most indecisive person ever, I question myself so much, which is something I don’t like about myself. Goals for this year: be more assertive!
I borrowed this lovely brown leather vintage dress from Waiste for the shoot as the leather trend is everywhere at the moment, but it’s so rare for me to find something like this vintage that actually fits me, so I may end up keeping it ! It goes so beautifully with this Lily and Lionel blouse, just look at those sleeves. Edit: I did end up keeping it, and styled it up differently on my instagram here
Honestly though I feel like I’m having a bit of an identity crisis with getting dressed at the moment ! I think there’s so so much inspiration out there, especially on pinterest and instagram sometimes I feel like I get a little lost with it, and comparing myself to others but also trying to keep true to my style, (even if I don’t know what that is at the moment)
