Vintage Camera.

My uncle has made my week. He heard that I had a fashion show shoot to do before the end of the month and therefore decided to give me my birthday present early. It's a darling of a vintage camera, trouble is I haven't the foggiest how to work it, I'm going to get online and research it I think. I can't wait to get to grips with how it works in time for the show, a vintage camera for a vintage fashion show. I'm really progressing well with my photography through all these oppurtunities at work, vintage clothing is always something I've been passionate about, especially the 1940's, I think it was the elegance and boymeetsgirl cuts. Hence my love of brogues, they're the perfect shoe for both gender. 1940's become a turning point because jackets weren't just for business men anymore, but they also came with a gorgeous clinched in waist to excentuate a womans figure. It was a powerful time for us ladies post-war and this is definately reflected in the fashions. Especially looking at icon at the time, such as the beautiful actress Veronica Lake. She was successful beautiful and above all a clever woman. That's why 1940's fashion should be remembered as a time of change and prosper for women. These strong yet flattering shapes, changed the face of fashion, from this moment on, women's clothing was powerful.


I have a job! Not only a job, but the best job I could possibly hope for, as soon as I heard that a Vintage shop was opening up in my town I marched on down there and asked for a job, I think I must of sounded crazy with passion for vintage clothing... or just crazy, either way I was offered a job. I know work in the shop, dressing maniquins, making sales and gnereally dressing up and dancing to Peggy Lee and Doris Day. It's blissful. The best part is... my boss saw my photography and asked me to take over the photography for the vintage clothing website. The shop is called Timeless, here's a link to the website I'm working on for her, The two photo shoots I did were an absolute blast. I dressed the girl's in everything from early 1940's fur to sexy Sixties sequined dresses. All of the photos will shortly be on the website, I loved dressing the ladies up and I currently have my eye on a beautiful tweed 1950's jacket at work. I think as my 18th Birthday is approaching. I know, EXCITING?! I will hopefully be getting it from someone. I absolutely love it and will be taking a picture of it pretty sharpish to see what you think. I love it. Check out the website, if you like vintage, I suppose.

don't sweat it sweetcheeks.

Literally, I think I'm going to be out on my behind unless I find a job SOON. My mother is literally at her witts end, so tomorrow I'm dropping my CV at a shop that's looking for part-time staff, as dull as it is, I NEED a job, else I'll never have enough money to persue a career in fashion design, if I can't even afford to pay for my bloody materials! When I get a job, I will be SO HAPPY.

On the upside, it's not all doom and gloom, me and Josh are taking are first proper holiday in less than two weeks, I'm so very excited, we're heading down to the gorgeous sandbanks of Christchurch in Bournemouth, eligantly placed on the south coast. It's so blissfully simple: huts on the beach, no electricty, no cars, a shared water pump, just the open waters, barbeques, guitars, and at night a full set of stars in the sky due to lack of pollution. I've been going since my first year of life, I'm so excited to share it with Josh. It's my secret little heaven, I can chill and not stress about anything. I get lots of writing done, swim in the sea, and just relax. It's an incredible place, not to mention the WATER SPORTS. I just can't wait.

The Summer Ball, guys and dolls. Well, what can I say?! I had an incredible time, it was at my boy's old school, I had to meet all his old friends, although a little nervous they all turned out to be rather nice, actually. I wore a grecian style cream dress, with a red rose corsage and gold grecian heels. The night was a pure success and the school year went out with a bang. Ofcourse I danced the night away, which was slightly awkward for Josh. He is the greatest musician and can turn his hand to anything creative but my god he cannot dance, he has two left feet, and myself being a dancer for several years, well you can imagine the conflict on the dancefloor, but I wanted to help him, and we got there eventually... he only stood on my dress or toes afew times! ahaha. A great night was had by all, even if the food was a bit of a let down: cold and undercooked, but hey THE PUDDING WAS GOOD. ahaha. Here's the shots.

the look of the day,

Tell me why I no longer see things as I did. You turn me around.

If we had a moment to share, would you take it.

I'm loosing sense of time and everything's the same.
I'll be home in a day, though I fear that's a month too late.
I borrowed my burgundy dad's work shirt, cut up and old pair of faded bleach-washed jeans to create shorts and threw on my striped top from H&M underneath it. That IS a laundry basket you can see in one of the photos. It doesn't matter though, I kind of like it.
