Dress- Chi Chi London
Throughout the summer I have tried to understand what my style is about and what Im trying to express through my photography. I have felt most comfortable dressing up in victorian lace blouses and creating photos that you can escape into. Well through autumn its not as easy to create these surreal escapism concepts and I've now settled for styling my fashion to that of the Renaissance period but with a contemporary gothic twist. My lips are almost everyday painted with a blood red colour, thanks to Topshop's 'Wicked' lipstick. My neck is laced with gold chains and hanging around my neck are two dainty cherubs, its my favourite necklace ever and I think its sold out on the Topshop website which is such a shame. However River Island have caught my eye this month but I find their prices to be considerable high for what the piece is worth. For example a black dress with a heavy embellished pearl and gold rose belt is priced at £70, when you can easily collect a number of beads and vintage pearls from old necklaces and do it yourself. Which is what I have been doing to my shoes, headbands and belts as you can see in the photos below. I hope these inspire you to make do and mend instead of spending your money this season.
