BURN YOUR BRA

I've been lucky enough to work with some brands that I really love recently, I'm so stoked to be able to create content with people and brands I adore. Making images and styling is my favourite thing to do, so being able to do this on the regular is quite special to me, you could say that I'm currently on cloud 9 about it. To celebrate this I've taken a trip down nostalgia lane and gone totally retro for a series of images I'll be sharing for the next couple of weeks,

and

as I'm quite proud of them I will undoubtedly be plastering them everywhere... To help with this I've teamed up with

Waiste Vintage

, who supplied me with all of the throw-back pieces I could dream of. The whole thing was a trip back to the seventies (

I obviously wasn't around in this era, but having a mother who lives for it and endless icons from said time, I think I know a little bit about it?

) and they might just be my favourite shoots to date, what with it being my all time favourite era I just had to take it to the extreme and go full on with it! Prepare for my blog to take a trip back to the time of psychedelic prints, statement accessories and of course a little bit of the '

burn the bra

' movement with this first post. Yeah, I'm embracing these phenomenal tan lines BTW...

When I think of the seventies I think of making statements and being loud and proud with everything from feminism to clothing, so I wanted to mix both with this outfit. I've nailed it with the

perfect slogan t-shirt

from

Nasty Gal

that was made to be worn with a seriously retro get-up. Of course, women did not actually burn their bra's in the late sixties and early seventies, but the myth of it all made for a powerful slogan for journalists and critic's, which later become great for printing onto clothing. Woman simply put their undies in the bin for a protest on the modern day beauty culture of valuing women for their looks, rather than their true being. It was a revolutionary act and put weight on unrealistic beauty expectations and standards. So to me, this piece needed to be worn for my throw-back shoot as it was a huge political movement from the era and one I stand with, it also makes for a pretty cute shirt too...

To help with making a statement I've got these beautiful flower power trousers from

Waiste Vintage

that have totally stolen my heart. They would be perfect for warm summers but also far too perfect to be kept away in winter. I braved it with these and forgot about sweet warmth for a while by embracing them for what they are, a pretty pair of kick flare linens -

my body is shivering just thinking about how freezing it was shooting these! 

The whole thing was worth the hours of goose-bumps afterwards, as I think me and my partner in creative crime (

that's you, Harry

) did good considering the zero degree temperatures and sudden down pours of rain. No matter what the weather I wanted these images to come across like they've been shot in the Californian sun.

The entire theme of these upcoming shoots means so much to me, I'm practically bursting I'm that excited to share them all with you.

So

, even though it's basically Baltic outside, I'm going to be sending us to warmer climes and chilled out scenes for the next few weeks,

enjoy!

WINTER PARADISE BY GHOSPELL

My

last post

featured

Sister Jane

, and this time it's all about their

sister

brand,

Ghospell

. When I went to the

Siser Jane

store I thought I'd only be greeted by rails of floaty dresses and patterned suits (

their staple product

), fact is I also got shown the new collection from

Ghospell

,

it was a total treat!

So, instead of picking a select handful of purely Sister Jane, I decided to try on some pieces from them as well. Turns out this one ended up coming home with me, or to the cabin shall I say. I'm a sucker for a frill, and this rusty orange shade is the most perfect colour for autumn, so I couldn't resist. A perfect piece to shoot in the warmth of our cabin we acquired of the night! So here it is, part two of my collaboration with the dream team that is Sister Jane and Ghospell...

TOPSHOP

Ghospell

recently launched their latest collection,

Winter Paradise

, which is filled with rustic hues, winter florals and of course a ruffle or two. Ruffles are huge this season, and perfect for any man or woman wanting to feel a bit Bowie circa 1970's. As the bohemian ruffles made me feel like it was an ode to Bowie, I wanted to team it with some trousers that I know he would of enjoyed. Say hello to my sequin flares of dreams that were made to be worn with  girlie frill! 

This outfit borders on rock and roll with the sequins and flamboyant blouse, I could image rock stars like Alex Turner picking the shirt and Mick Jagger selecting the trousers, it's a bold mix and match outfit, but for me it totally works. If I was a front man this would be my stage outfit, but sadly every time I've picked up an instrument I've failed miserably, and boy have I tried! I'll stick to wearing this combo off stage and keep singing into my hairbrush in private, something I do all too often.

These flares are going to be my winter party piece. They're so easy to style because they do all the talking for you. Wear them with a basic t-shirt and your outfits pretty much made. I bought mine from

Topshop

, but since picking them up I've seen brands like

Missguided

and

Pretty Little Thing

jump on the hype. I think our Insta feeds will be filled with sequin OOTD's from here until January 1st and I'm excited about it! I can't wait to take these babies for a spin on the town, maybe I'll head to a karaoke bar and live my dream of wearing the ultimate front man attire on an actual stage with an actual real life microphone and not my Tangle Teaser. Maybe, but probably not...

Stay tuned for my next photo set which features even more

Sister Jane

and even more ruffle!
