001. Hey everyone, sorry I haven't blogged in a while things have been quite rough these past couple of days. I have also found myself being quite hard on myself and looking back on my previous posts and photos I hate how they come across and how they've been put together. I am such a perfectionist I hate to see things I'm doing wrong and normally I will punish myself and be quite low for a few days. I've realised I'm not the typical high street blogger and I dont have perfect manicured nails and sultry hair. I just love to create stories and sometimes art with my fashion and style. I have put so much effort into trying to bring to life these worlds inside my imagination and its been hard work. Sometimes I feel is it really worth it?  ok rant over.


002. I went to visit my University City where I will be living in september, its quite a flat area but you have to climb up this huge hill to get to my accommodation but there is a lovely sea view. I am so terrified of making new friends I am so socially awkward and I dont get along with girls so well. I find them hard to trust and I'm going to be staying with five of them. I just hope to god they like me and not think I'm some freak. My Dad and I visited the area to get our bearings of where things were, we drove alone the sea front it was quite rainy but I love how misty it made everything, it was so magical I really think it will be such an inspiring place to live.

003. I bought a few things that day some Vintage Pink Cotton Gloves that I would love to wear with a Pink Quilted Jacket like Lady Penelope. I bought a Shabby Chic Dolly Mug and a Birthday Card yes I know it isn't anyones birthday but I wanted a print of the design without buying a poster that was £10. I used it for my giveaway image HERE. Its so cute don't you think? You can find more pieces with the same design HERE. Other things I bought were, 50 Shades Of Grey, yeah I still haven't read all of it, A Vintage Teacup and Saucer and I got the Large Tissue Paper Flower for free, I really wanted to learn how to make them after seeing them being used in Ingela's Photography. Whilst writing this post I've been listening to Erin's 50s inspired mix on 8tracks HERE. Also I wanted to know would you prefer my photos without the vintage edit or not? In the outfit photos below I've not edited them.

You get a 'teen' bracelet from The Laughing Assassin, a lovely lady named Aine hand makes these and they are just so awesome I had to include one!

SIXTIES LOVE CHILD

60s love den
PINK ROSE HEAD BAND- EBAY
WHITE DRESS WORN AS A TOP- CHICWISH
DIY SKIRT FROM NIGHT DRESS- 9 CROW STREET
SOCKS- EBAY
SHOES- NEWLOOK

001. We've all seen the 50s and Sixties blooming in this Spring Summers trends I mean it seems to be in fashion all the time but this year there are some strong vibes being channeled through the likes of Designers like Louis Vuitton and artists such as Lana Del Rey, Paloma Faith, Marina and the Diamonds, you've seen Topshop's lookbook for Factory girl and even Tavi Gevison is rocking the beehive over on her Blog. This post was mainly inspired by Dior's New Fragrance Commercial for Addict , if you haven't seen it click here now. Well what better way to join in all the fun by making a Love Den. I bought some heart shaped balloons, confetti and little cupcakes cases in my nearest Garden Centre, they were in the sale so I thought I'd better had buy them.

002. I made this floral skirt from a nightie dress that I got from 9 Crow Street. I just love mixing in nightwear with an every day outfit. The nightie was so long and you can see the top half of it here.
I've been picking wild flowers again, every time the sun shines there are so many Roses to pick. I feel bad but how can you resist. I have a thing for flowers recently, and I've been collecting empty jars, bottles and floral china tea cups to display on my windowsill. Its remarkably relaxing smelling those sweet floral flowers every morning you wake. I went to visit my grandma and we visited our nearest town where I bought some boat shoes in the sale for £10 they are so comfy, I also bought some socks because these were just so Lolita, I got some sweets mmm and we walked along the Canal and stopped at the pub for some lunch. Also I was the Cosmopolitan's VO5 Style Icon last week and had my photo displayed all day, which was so cool I was so happy. Don't forget to check out my Blog Sale!
