"In order to be irreplaceable, one must always be different".. Coco Chanel. I shall live and die by this quote. Be who you want to be, not who someone wants you to be, it honestly is the difference between being happy and not. I aim to blog about fashion and all that surrounds it.

1920's Warm up

Today at Uni we had a one day brief task, it consisted of being set era's and creating a photo shoot within hours and presenting the final images. We we're paired up, one the photographer, one the model. I was the model for Lily and we had the 20's. Instantly we knew we wanted to do the iconic 'flapper' style, we knew someone with a vintage flapper dress, I bought a little black wig and we borrowed some shoes.

I woke up and did my make-up as '20s' as I could manage, with the elongated eyebrows and rounded matt red lips. I had previously found some locations in Worthing that we could possibly use, ideal for what we wanted to create.

possible locations:

We had such a good time creating our test shots for after christmas, Lily was amazing and we worked excellently together throughout the day and our final shots we presented are below.

All for now,   take care

The God to our soles.

Well, the other evening, my life (to the current moment) was complete.   I met Monsieur Christian Louboutin himself at Harvey Nichols, London for his first book signing.   Amazing to say the least.

An experience in life I am glad I did not miss out on. To have sat next to such a genius and be spoken to like a friend was a moment I shall never forget. As for the book, outstanding. Worth every penny and to have it addressed to myself with the signature of Louboutin completes it that little bit more.

To queue for a hour after being told the chance of not getting a signature, being star struck and shaking constantly was not the best part of the evening however... Amazing. It was safe to say I woke up Friday morning feeling like I had had the best dream possible.

A moment I shall never forget. 

Never give up on a idea,  follow every possibility.
