This is kind of a carry on of another post, as you may notice the same dress again! But I had too many photos to do it all in one, so though I would split it up.
Here I've got it with this gorgeous forties utility coat (complete with original utiltiy label!) that is also my mum's, and a bright green shirt dress- place of origin also being my mother's wardrobe. I seriously want to steal half her things!
The hat is a vintage Kangol one found in a local charity shop, and the leaf necklace is a family piece. Boots as before.
I would spend lots of time explaining this, but I think all of it was said in the previous post! But I will say that this is officially the last shoot done on my old camera, from now on they'll all be with the Canon 5D.
So I thought I'd devote the rest of my writing to a debate.
I recently found an article on the internet (not sure where) about teen fashion bloggers. But more interesting than the article itself was the 'your view' section. I found it fascinating reading these, but there was one point that riled me slightly. There were a number of people who thought that if you had a fashion blogger, then you were always obsessed with getting new clothes and feeding the capitalism of society. Apparently this 'frivolous' subject should also have articles of meaning too.
Now I'm personally very interested in fashion, but not just the 'clothes' aspect. I love designing (as is obvious!) and photography. These are my two main passions. I find that my blog is a perfect creative platform to showcase my ideas and style.
Nearly all of my clothes are from charity shops, market stalls and flea markets or family items. The massive majority of my wardrobe is vintage!
But just because I often write about fashion, it doesn't mean that this is my only thought in life. I love writing (fiction and on occasion, poetry), reading all types of literature- my favourites of the moment being the Bell Jar and Small Island. I'm really interested in art and take inspiration from all areas of life. I try to steal the newspapers my parents buy so I can read them first and would like to say I'm rather academic.
Fashion just happens to be one of my interests. Is there anything wrong with that?
Now, I really do understand that everyone is allowed their own opinion on things, but I think you should be able to appreciate other's choices too..
So whats your opinion on all this? I'd love to hear your views.
