January 2012
Was the month I started to work with Companies, last year the only one was Romwe, at the beginning I had bad hair extensions, took photos in doors which were so bad haha but the outfits were so creative and crazy. I completely let myself go. I got featured in Teen Vogue Best Dressed Online and my photos wearing Your Eyes Lie clothes were featured on their website as a product image. It was crazy to see yourself on a clothing website that you have admired for a while. Companies worked with Your Eyes Lie, Chicwish, Romwe.

February 2012
There are a few more looks in this month because it was the season of Love and I think Chicwish knew this and spoilt me with many wonderous fairytale dresses to prance around in. This was the month I started talking to the lovely Paige and we collaborated together for the Lookbook Valentines Competition. I also worked with an amazing online vintage store called Shoppalu, and She Inside oh and also I couldn’t believe that In Love With Fashion sent me this Pink Maxi Dress. It was so expensive as a sample I was so thankful.

March 2012
The month of the fiery red head seems like I was actually on fire with lots of ideas that created wonderful looks. This was the BOOM month, so much happened. I became obsessed with Cosette Munch dyed my hair like her. BIG MISTAKE. Dont have a clue what I was doing at that time. I worked with Proopticals, Australian Store Beginning Boutique, and Club Couture. I discovered the wonderful Jessica Celebre’s looks and fell into a state of romantic dreaming. She opened up this whole new world for me. I watched the film Picnic at Hanging Rock because of her. I worked with little jewellery boutiques like Megan Jane, Rings and Tings and Iridescent. I received a parcel of clothes from Paige, and I sent one back, it was a way of supporting each others blogs and experimenting. I became obsesed with Lolita thanks to Cosette Munch. I started reading blogs like Briar Rose and Red Brick Lipstick but I was afraid to approach these ladies they seemed to be so magical and inspiring.

This look got shared and featured on the Lookbook Facebook page thanks to Yuri Lee.

Inspired by Jessica Celebre’s Look.

April 2012
The Blooming Butterfly months. Found my love for Lana Del Rey. Invested in a wig, didn’t want to be Ginger anymore but my hair was in bad condition so its better than dying it and its easier to completely reinvent yourself with wigs. I had such a great time dressing up as Lana Del Rey, I think my hard work paid off because in May she followed me on Twitter. Worked with great companies like I Wear Sin, Ellatino and Ax Paris and OASAP.

Inspired by Kustom Kix Shoes by Sherriff Nasir

Remember this look reaching top 5 on the Lookbook Hot Page and Ivam and I were getting too excited.

May 2012
Was the flaming hot weather where it was just too hot to take looks outdoors! I can remember making up this Jubilee Tea Party at the bottom of my garden because it was the only place that had shade! When I wore the cream lace dress I was sweating so much, it was so uncomfortable. Worked with amazing companies like The Orphan Arms, Mad Lady, I Any Wear, Little Me and BQueen Shoes.

June 2012
Still obsesed with lana as you can see in the photos, I invested in a longer Curly Wig, which was amazing but now has gone ratty. Need to invest in a new one asap. Found the biggest sweet smelling Pink Rose in the Graveyard! It basically just put the cherry on the top of that Darker Black Laced look. So beautifully contrasted! I started talking to Megan Mcminn at this time and we sent each other parcels, she was such an inspiration, but now she is fully blooming and its great to see her being so successful, wish her lots of luck for the future. Worked with great companies like Choies, Camera Fund Clothing, Laughing Assassin Jewellery and 9 Crow Street.

    Sweetheat, this is definitely one of my favourite 2012 recap posts so far. Absolutely LOVED going over all your past looks. They've been so wonder and inspirational. I've said this to you before but I so admire your sense of style. It's so whimsical and dreamy. Yet, you seem (and are) so approachable. I feel lucky to have spoken to you. Yours was the first blog I've EVER read! I found you from Rookie (thank you Rookie) and have been a devoted follower ever since. And from you I found Megan, and Paige and all the other beautiful girlies. So many many thanks to you Charlotte. You've brightened my days. Cant wait for Part 2 lovely! xxx
