As far as I’m concerned, the 90s isn’t one of the ‘vintage’ eras that has permission to come back into fashion every now and again. This summer, however, they seem to feel that none of the previous eras are good enough, that even those of us who aren’t old at all need to relive some bygone era. Honestly? It’s the first ‘vintage’ era trend that I actually lived through myself! I remember all of these trends! I used to think they were terrible…but fashion has a way of wiping your mind and convincing you that whatever is en vogue is, like, totally cool! The best thing about the 90s was Clueless.
I call this look: Lovechild-Of-Drew-Barrymore-And-Gwen-Stefani. True story: I am actually wearing these buns in my hair regularly now! Whaddaya think?
Bodysuit – American Apparel; Skirt – Topshop; Platforms – Ecote
So I was sifting around my photo files and came across a few images that Cormac took a while back of some of my bits and pieces in my wardrobe. I can’t find the rest from the set unfortunately, there were some good ones of my sunglasses collection (extensive), and my jewellery (messy).
Custom bleeding Chanel logo necklace
Alexander McQueen silk scarf and skull ring
Leather heart box of jewels from CC Skye, Macy’s, Zadig & Voltaire etc.
I went up to Norwich a couple weeks ago for a whirlwind 24 hours of manic photoshoots with Sophie! Hectic it was, but luckily it was also a success! Here is an image we shot at 1am in the morning, in her bedroom, lit only with fairy lights and candles. Her concept was centred around the overall theme of the colour White, and also children’s forts – it made me want to build one at home like I used to when I was a kid, and just hide in it all day!
You can just make out a bunch of photobooth snaps on the wall underneath the fairy lights – I approve. Massive fan.
Nightgown – Christian Dior
I’ve been wanting to release my inner child and make a fort in my room for aaages but it’s hard to justify as a 21 year old! When Annelise showed me this gorgeous nightgown I knew the time had come to get building! I lit this shot with a selection of continuous lights from fairy lights to candles to lamps. I wanted it to look as organic as possible.
In some ways I guess this is a bit of a self portrait, this room is where all my ideas come to their head and it’s filled with little parts of me, for example the photobooth photos on the wall. It’s full of beautiful little things and it was lovely to add Annelise to that list and take some photographs, hope you like it!
PS. I advise everyone to build a fort in their room as soon as they can!
