Tiger dresses and fashion lusting

Fashion, Fashion photography, My photography

As I write this I am hungry. What shall I eat? I’m trying to cut down on cheese, as I do tend to put it in everything, although I could do worse. Apparently dairy can make you more intelligent, because it has Iodine in it. So that’s good I suppose. I’ll hold on to that fact.

At the moment I’m looking for a full time job, and there doesn’t seem to be any that provide more than an 8 or 16 hour contract a week. Either that or they’re all temporary! Frustration.

Putting the dairy and job stuff aside, here’s some fashion for you! This is one of my favourite dresses from Romwe and my all time favourite shoes from Underground.

The lip stick is from Topshop and the shade is called ‘Arcade’.

I have been lusting after some rings from www.emptycasket.com. Empty casket (if you don’t already know) is an online jewellery store, everything is hand made with a ‘grungey vibe’. Here are some of my favourites….

Rings £18

Necklace £10

Kitty ring £5

Working on my magazine!

So I’m still working on my Final Major Project which eventually will be a magazine. At the moment i’m trying to decide what should be the cover, however I haven’t taken all my photographs yet but it’s just to get the ball rolling! I chose the name Religion, because I think the word looks good and calling any new business ‘Religion’ makes sense if you want people to follow it. It also reflects the fashion trend of religious crosses on everything at the moment. I’m not religious!

Here are a few ideas I have at the moment. Of course it could change as I will be taking more photographs. Most people seem to like the 3rd cover down best?

New photographs, the end is nigh!

Fashion, Fashion photography, My photography

Hello, It’s been a while since my last post. I am currently only a few months away from 3rd year ending, which is pretty terrifying! Soon I’ll be trying to get a proper job…

At the moment I’m working on my final major project, which by the end of it I need to produce a whole magazine. The magazine is going to feature a more diverse range of fashion model, from body shape to ethnicity. The point of the magazine is not to fall into the trap of the rigid fashion culture which presents mainly skinny very young white girls as fashion models. Of course many magazines are not guilty of this, and a lot is changing in the diversity of fashion models. I also want to do features within the magazine that come from a more intelligent angle, as opposed to diet and celebrity features. I have never produced a magazine before, so it’s going to be a challenge, but I’m excited.

Here is my first shoot. The trend is monochrome, and it has a bit of an 80’s feel to it. Hope you like it!

90’s Fashion

Uncategorized

90’s fashion is coming back. Platform shoes, high ponytails, grunge, leggings…. all the best stuff! Here are some of the biggest things to emerge from the 90’s…

Kate Moss

The 90’s was Kate’s prime time, discovered when she was just 14 in 1988, she revived the ‘waif look’. Not the healthiest body image, which contributed to ‘heroin chic’ being born. Heroin chic was basically a reaction against the healthier looking models like Cindy Crawford etc, where models were made to look pretty much like heroin addicts…. but it was cool. 

Spice Girls

The Spice Girls are the biggest girl group ever to have lived. Yes. They only released three albums, one of which without Geri Halliwell who had left by then, but the impact they made during those first two albums was immense. They made a huge impact on lots of little girls lives back then, and their songs are still pretty decent (seriously, when your really drunk its the most uplifting thing ever). Which brings me to…

90’s platforms

Platforms were huuuuge in the 90’s. The Spice girls were at the forefront of this trend, I remember desperately wanting a pair. I was like seven though. These days everyone’s wearing them, platform wedges, trainers, the higher the better…

 

I have a few of my own platforms…

OK that’s me done, there is way more I want to blog about but it might just be never ending if I carry on.

Thanks for reading.
