Over the years I make occasional investment purchases – for my wardrobe. Investment pieces should always be well crafted and timeless so you can wear them time and time again. Last year a wrote about my love for camel tones, especially during the Winter. Ever since I’ve wanted the perfect camel cashmere sweater, something really special. View Post
Being a 90’s kid I’m feeling so much nostalgia for the fashion revival I’m seeing right now. The oversized streetwear with massive logo’s from brands like Champion, Fila and Kappa bring back comforting memories from my years growing up. Another moment from the 90’s, one I was too young to buy into was Calvin Klein. The recently revived Obsessed fragrance still uses the original campaign featuring Kate Moss. For as long as I can remember I have loved Kate and as time passes her rockstar status only increases.
I spent the last week in London visiting friends and for work. In most part the weather was nice and like always I found myself hopping across the capital a couple of times a day which is fun but exhausting. Most nights I was in bed early, too tired to do anything else. I only had my iPhone on the trip which I used to take some fun shots along my daily travels. I stayed with a couple of different friends which took me from Hackney in the East to Chelsea in the West and everything in between. View Post
Very recently it felt like I had turned a corner with street style photography. This time last year I was mostly posting lifeless looking pictures that did nothing to reflect my personality. This was really frustrating because good imagery is what I’ve been striving for from the beginning and boy it hasn’t been easy. Part of the issue was my confidence in front of the camera which I spoke about in this recent blog post. With practice I’m learning how to look more relaxed and carefree in images without resorting to a big cheesy grin. Beyond that I’m learning through trial and error how to keep things cohesive plus things to look for when location scouting and the best types of natural lighting. View Post
It comes as no surprise that I’m my happiest when I’m dressed comfortably. I’m not the type of person to forgo comfort for a trend, believe me I’ve tried it and the results weren’t good. This doesn’t mean I don’t love a trend, it just has to love me and then I’m all over it. This week I caught sight of the first leaves beginning to change colour. With that in mind (sorry) I’m diving into outfit ideas (not sorry) for a new season and Esprit came up trumps. View Post
