Being back after two months of absence feels slightly strange but it’s been a hectic last few months what with exams and uni preparation, summer being a gentle reprieve from reality of course. I didn’t quite realise how much I had missed blogging until I started writing this post. Why did I ever stop eh?
Anyway, last week I had a mini test shoot with my friend, Faisal, a talented photographer trying his hand at fashion photography and these are some of the results from the shoot – which I have split up into two parts in order to distinguish the two looks I styled. Recently I’ve been trying to accommodate my personal style and as we do, purchased a new signature scent (it smells divine, divine, divine) and changed my shade of lipstick in the process. The look I was going for here was very laid back with hints of sophistication and a sort of rebellious youthful air; hence the mashup of style paradigms. Given my brief overview does it come as any surprise that we chose to shoot in Camden?
Do check out Faisal’s photography on his:
And with that I bid you adieu until the next post,

This is the first post on my newly established fashion blog and I really hope it gets a good response!
The story behind this picture is quite amusing. I went out in Central London with the aim to take pictures of people I found stylish and suffered from a momentary lapse of confidence when it came to approaching those people.
After a pep talk I received whilst buying a neck strap for my camera (as well as a threat from the most amazing people I know), I saw this girl walk past with a friend. Her outfit captured my attention immediately and I debated on what to do for a minute or two before making up my mind and running after her. I kid you not, I ran.
I’m glad she was the first person I photographed for this blog; 1) because she was incredibly nice and 2) because her adorable Spanish accent helped to calm my nerves.
I especially loved her shirt, which had an almost Neo-Gothic feel to it. That paired with the grungy cut out shoes, 1980’s acid wash shorts and black lipstick I feel created the perfect balance, without any of the individual pieces outshining the others.
Hope you dig this look as much as I did 🙂
