Tropical Print Dress- Handmade by my Grandmother
Leaf Necklace*- Merrin & Gussy| Earrings- H&M
Hey everyone, I was going to continue posting my red head outfits, but then again I thought well Its just basically a lie because my hair is brown now. So I want to try and avoid my orange past and look to the future. I decided to enter Lookbook's competition for a chance to win a trip to New York Fashion Week, I am always entering their competitions because you got to be in it to win it. It would honestly be a dream to go to NYC, I really can't even begin to imagine it. To leave Wales and travel on a plane to America, oh my god. I've never been outside of England or on a plane! I'm going to keep on posting entries in hope of winning of course! So this look was inspired by Lana Del Rey's upcoming short film called film called 'Tropico' I'm not too sure what it is entirely about yet, but I have my idea and I just know it will be perfect. I found some tropical print dresses in my Grandmothers house that she had handmade when she was younger, they funny enough fit me, with a belt of course but never the less I still admire anything that is handmade. I found a great location near my house which has over grown plants taller than me and it has a tropical paradise type feel, so I just had to take some photos there. They have cut most of it back and it was quite scary to go walking around in there, I was scared to see a grass snake or something. But I braved it bare foot and imagined there was sand beneath my feet not spiders and stingy nettles. I prefer taking photos outdoors it just takes a while to discover and imagine the photos in your head. It was so much fun walking in the cold river, the air was quite humid but still cloudy and its definitely one of my secret hiding places now I could get away to and read a book. Hope you like the photos there is part two coming up called Redemption so stay tuned.
Lots of love,
