These photos were kind of inspired by Lana Del Rey’s Met Ball outfit you can see HERE. She looked like a Dark Vampire or Mermaid I loved it so much, you rarely get to see her Dark Rock and Roll Style. I got this dress from Jovonna London, its new in and you can see it HERE. It cost sixty pounds but looks so perfect for the Red Carpet or a Special Event. They have so many other well made unique pieces such as Cecille Dress and Cookie Blouse. I paired it with my Sea Shell Necklace from Chicwish and a Shell Shaped Bag from a Charity Shop. They are my favourite pieces ever they went well with the Sparkly Underskirt. My favourite part of this dress was the Floaty Skirt, every time the wind blowed the Skirt would dance around my feet and I felt like I was in the amid of a stormy beach. The see through Chiffon Pleated Skirt enhances the Mermaid theme to the dress and for a short Lady like myself ( 4’9 ) a size 8 was just about right, If I wanted to I could of take an inch on the bottom because it was dragging on the floor, even with six inch wedges.

The locations I went to were an Old Green Barn that I found whilst walking the Dogs the other day, I thought it belonged to the Farmer but to my surprised it was owned by this old couple with the amazing magical garden. I don’t think I’ve quite told you about it! I saw this shallow pond in someones garden through the hedge row on my walk and I looked more closely too my surprise there were so many rose bushes and a dainty green house and vegetable patches, wild flowers everywhere and a little bench right by the pond. It looked like the Secret Garden and I wished I could take photos there! Whilst I was minding my own business taking these photos an old frail man wondered up to the fence and asked me who I was. I had to explain to him everything and I don’t think he quite understood me. But anyway he offered me that I could take photos in his garden I really wanted to but didn’t want to look intrusive after all this barn actually belonged to him!! I went about my business and tried to get out there asap I feel so rude when people catch me taking photos on their properties. So I resorted to the Lane and the Churchyard. I hope you enjoy these photos they are something a bit darker from my usual airy fairy photos but I feel its good and no human being can be living in a happy fairytale all the time.
