A couple of weeks ago I got together with friends and photographer David Bridle for a little photoshoot. When I saw the flowery clothes and accessories at The Boutique, Mexican artist Frida Kahlo was the inspiration that came to mind. I did two similar looks, with the main variation being the accessories. If you are familiar with Frida’s work you will know that it features mostly her self portraits and always with a very serious expression on her face. I don’t think I’ve ever seen any painting of her smiling, please correct me if I’m wrong. I hope you like these, I had a lot of fun preparing the looks and planning the photoshoot.
Details : Flower headband– Sassy Vamps, Flower Scarf and Dress – The Boutique, Necklace – Matalan.
Details : Flower headband- separate flowers I got on sale from H&M, Flower Scarf and bangles – The Boutique, Earrings– Matalan, Shoes– Irregular Choice (via Ebay), Skirt – Primark, Black leotard – American Apparel.
I’m adding this post to Patty’s Visible Monday over at Not Yet Dead Style.
Sunday Sunday, I love a lazy Sunday. I mean who doesn’t? Having a lie in, time to do your own projects, nap and snack when you want… The perfect day of the week if you ask me!
Last weekend I traveled to Lincoln to go to the movies. It was a nice trip out.
I wore a big flower on my hair and my uber cool DIY project.
Tabi shoes from Japan, Silver jeans and Dr Martens high heeled loafers.
More inappropriate wear for the Office- rainbow platforms from the Office outlet on Ebay and the Ahcahcum Muchacha cat bag. I love it!
The red sparkly shoes I got from a blog sale at Emily Divine and the embroidered ones are from Oysho and I’ve had them for god knows how many years…
I love getting nice things through the post – particularly if they have s sense of humour. I got the rosette from Dear Colleen, a super fun indie shop from New Zealand. It’s a one woman show and what a great show it is, go on right ahead and have a look, you won’t regret it. I also learned how to use my sewing machine for the first time this week. I am hoping it will be a lasting love affair.
Yesterday I went to a tea party at Chloe’s. I was even given a teacup to match my outfit, how cute was that?
Party mask and cake!
We played twister and it was a laugh… to watch!!! I’ll be posting more about it during the week.
When I got home I found a lovely package that had arrived when I was out – A flower crown and loads of goodies from Desiree of Pull Your Socks Up! Thank you for all the goodies – the kookaburra magnet went straight on the fridge and I can’t wait for an opportunity to wear the amazing flowers on my head.
