Hey lovelies sorry I haven’t blogged in a week, but hasn’t the weather been so fantastic! This summer has been yet again filled with magic and nostalgia. I’ve discovered my own music tastes, instead of being influenced by someone else’s. Its so easy to loose yourself to another person and its a beautiful moment when for so long you have lost yourself and been suffocated by someone, to finally let go and fully blossom back to the precious flower you used to be, is an overwhelming feeling.
This little photo shoot I quickly put together was inspired by the song Beauty Queen by Foxes. I seem to be reminiscing so much about my childhood recently as I am growing older and maturer, and long for that innocence and naivty again. I have always been interested in the whole idea of Beauty Pageants since my Mother entered me into a few when I was a child.. I mainly love the dresses, all laced with pink frills and peach satin fabrics. I prefer the older pageants and not the new ones that you see on TV where the children are orange. I guess remembering the things as a young child with my mother perhaps makes me feel closer to her. However I’ve always been obsessed with girly parties, sleepovers, proms, weddings, christenings, anything that includes big overly decorated cakes, and and balloon arched ways. I didn’t go to my prom because I knew it would be a disappointment. I have the perfect image in my head of what a prom should be like, and I knew nothing could live up to that. Perhaps something like the one from the Virgin Suicides, where nobody has to wear fake nails, short dresses, stupidly high heels or caked in make up. So now I just like to dream of being prom queen lives on, and I collect and make plastic tiara’s. I wonder if any of you still think your a hopelessly romantic 16 year old girl? I definitely don’t feel like I am turning twenty one in September.
Lots of love,
