So I've never been much of an outfit blogger. This is for a variety of reasons, but mostly my lack of a decent camera, lack of interest in getting a decent camera, lack of white wall/space to take photos and general laziness. One of my aims when moving into my studio in Paris was to start taking regular outfit photos. Well, that clearly hasn't happened yet. But I am now really determined to document what I am wearing/buying, mainly for my own benefit so I can look back at what I liked in 2010 and laugh/cry. I wish I had more photographic evidence of things I liked when I was younger, because from the few photos I have it's interesting to see continuity in my clothing choices. Most of the time when I buy things it is because there is just something about it that draws me to it, perhaps I've seen someone wearing something similar recently or it reminds me of a movie. But it's also nice to realise that for whatever reason, there are some things I've always liked to wear, and probably always will. Such as anything in the colour blue, cream lace dresses, chunky platform sandals, dark red velvet, peter pan collars, high-waisted shorts. But enough nostalgia for today, here are some of my favourite tops, shoes and dresses at the moment. More to come.
