Hello again. This week has passed in a crazy blur - from school reports, college applications, late night cinema trips to modelling for Beyond Retro, I think the last five days has pretty much covered it all. Everything had begun to feel a little grey and monotonous again recently, but this week has definitely restored my spirits (and my faith in humanity).
The highlight, however, has to be Wednesday, when I was fortunate enough to be asked to model for my all-time favourite vintage store Beyond Retro, alongside the gorgeous Charlotte and Maddy. After having hair and makeup done, we got to spend the day floating around Brick Lane in the cutest outfits for their Prom edit, which obviously was a complete dream come true - I just can't wait to get the pictures back so I can show you!
On Thursday, I went on a spontaneous late night trip to my local cinema to see Wes Anderson's The Grand Budapest Hotel. It was, of course, absolutely fantastic, with my favourite character having to be the extravagant Madame D, played by Tilda Swinton. All I can say is Wes Anderson never lets you down.
On the way back from Shoreditch on Wednesday, I stopped off to have a wander around the old disused railway line that runs near my house. It was so quiet and calm up above the houses, and has made me want to bring my artwork outside on an early morning instead of trying to paint hunched up indoors all the time.
I wore my dotty tights and socks from Topshop, shoes and skirt from Rokit, shirt and sweater from the Vintage Car Boot Sale and coat from River Island.
My outfits recently have been very yellow-based. This one in particular felt very Wes Anderson too, which I see as no bad thing (it's still my number one dream to be Suzy Bishop...I am still on the hunt for a cute little pair of binoculars).
Here is a sneak preview from the Beyond Retro shoot, styled by the lovely Naomi Rowland from Two Shoes One Pair, and photographed by the awesome Hollie Fernando ...I can't wait to show you guys all of the pictures next week.
Hope you are all well!
