Recently I headed down to South London and had a great time taking photos of my friend Ross (will share these when they can go public) and exploring an area of town that I’d never visited before. These skate parks are great to be used as backdrops for photo shoots and it was amusing that we weren’t the only ones who had the same idea. Regardless, there was enough room for everyone and even managed to snap a few photos of a couple of random girls, who asked us to take their photo. I obviously had to step in and take one with my camera.
What else is new? Not much, except for the fact that I’ve gone back to work full time and things are slowly going back to normal. I’ve been busy with creative projects as much as possible, focusing on the things that I love doing. I also wrote and illustrated something about social media for bloggers for Talented Talkers and a piece on illustrated Vogue covers for the new online magazine for bloggers Bloggeration (of which I am now art editor, yay!).
Seems like we caught Robbo working on his piece of art!
There will be more exciting things to share but all in due time… For now, just enjoy the street art and I hope you like my new Spring dress (I can’t get over how cute the hearts on the collar are).
Outfit details: Beret – American Apparel; Dress – c/o Joy; Shoes – Repetto; Jacket – Morrissey merchandising.
this was a really nice day out and I loved doing photos at this place. What other spots would you recommend in London for photo shoots that I should try?
PS: A big thank you to Ross for snapping my photos and finding this amazing place!
For a variety of reasons, I’ve been ditching a lot of the cutesy dresses and accessories that I own. The reality is, I’m getting closer to 40 and sometimes dressing like a 5-year-old feels a little bit silly and it’s getting a little bit old for me. I’d like to think that I still have my own style, but it’s been evolving and less infantilised. However, sometimes there are dresses that come along that you can’t just say no to.
Mod Dolly’s Margot dress was one such garment, as soon as I saw it I knew I had to have it, although it’s short and has the obviously cute heart pockets. I’d like to think that I can still carry it well, despite being designed for much younger ladies than myself.
Sometimes you know you are just going to like and get along with someone, even before you actually meet them.
This is what happened with Shu-Shi, who also blogs at Shu Likes Clothes. When we decided to go on a pizza date along with our mutual friend Umit, it was part of the plan all along to do a few outfit photos. It would be rude not to, especially with Umit’s talents as a professional photographer.
Having a few days off between Christmas and New Year was a much needed break from work and the perfect opportunity to spend time with friends, go to the cinema and go out and explore the city during the day. This one day in particular, I went to the movies to see “Paddington”, which although it is a children’s film, it was very entertaining. It made me laugh and that’s exactly what I needed to do. We go the tickets and went for a walk around Islington, to kill time before the film and of course, do an outfit photo, as opportunities for these tend to be scarce these days.
