film inspiration?


Whilst everyone else is embracing the pastels and florals (spring has sprung and all that), I seem to be finally discovering a love for all black.  My trusty white will be back again soon I’m sure.   Following Monday’s #fbloggers chat on style eras/icons, I’d had visions of combining Sandy-style all black with this Pink Ladies-esque jacket, though I’m not sure to what degree it was successful!  Part of the reason I love watching old, classic, films is of course the outfits.  Sandy’s disco pants and bomber jacket combos, Ariel’s dance dress in Footloose, and Dirty Dancing Baby’s cropped tops and shorts are exactly the kind of outfits I’d love to wear now!  Which movie do you think has the best fashion of all time?


Jacket and Top: New Look
Jeans and Boots: Primark





Lately, I’ve been feeling more inspired creatively (for which I have the Great British Sewing Bee to thank!) so hopefully if I have any spare time this week that’s where it’ll be spent.  I’ll be sure to blab about whatever I get up to here so watch this space!

    All black is very cool and your outfit today is really great! Maybe one of my favourites. As for movies with the best style of all time, I’ll have a think about it and get back to you! I liked footloose and grease, but I don’t really have any outfits that come to mind. Hmm, depends of if I’m looking for knitwear or just clothes in general. Ah… I’m racking my brains here, but I can’t remember any movie outfits in particular. Shame on me!

      Ah thank you Max! I’m a sucker for dancey musicals so they’d probably be my favourite films anyway, never mind the clothes!

    I’d love to know a little more about how your photographs are taken… is someone taking them, do you do tripod work? Always a pleasure to see your photos.

      Hi Dayana,
      My mum is a photographer and she takes the majority of my photographs! I’m a very lucky girl to have her 🙂

    […] it’s the general gist.  I realised halfway through shooting this outfit that we’d shot one remarkably similar, in the exact same location, almost exactly two years ago.  And bloody hell have things changed […]
