Dear Photograph (WARNING PICTURE HEAVY POST)

Dear photograph is a new tumblr blog which can be found at www.dearphotograph.com
The whole idea is that people submit pictures of old photographs in the present. It kind of reminds me of the Irina Werning photographs from my Back to the future post.
Such a lovely little idea, and the captions add a witty little narrative, bringing the stories to life.





















Chloe Sevigny x Opening Ceremony = sheer delight

Wow, wow. Loving the outfit at 1.28


Inspiration for new outfit?

Broderie Anglaise bralette and knee socks from Topshop, vintage belt and shorts from Beyond Retro

Ring ring, HOLLER




So i've bought a few new rings from Topshop and off of ebay. I'm trying to get back into wearing silver so the 2 silver ones and my double crucifix have been making lots of appearances recently. However this ornate gold and multi stoned beauty, brings out my inner hindu hippy. Can't wait to teem it with some bright floaty dresses and sandals with my hair braided.


Silver ring with turquoise stone, bought as wholesale from ebay. Silver knotted ring and ornate gold one are both from Freedom@Topshop.
My nail varnish is also from Topshop and has the charming name 'Marine Biologist'.

Love for Bee



So i'm guessing that the majority of people saw Beyonce's Glastonbury set? No?
It was out of this world.
She was the first woman to headline in over 20 years and without getting all feminist and girl power she made me proud to be a woman. Blowing Coldplay and U2 out of the water, her performance was everything a show should be. One of my favourite parts about it was that you could really tell she loved doing it, loved being there and was so appreciative of her success.
Bee, I LOVE YOU.

For those that missed it and live in the UK, catch it here.
Skip to 25.46 if you just wanna see Miss Knowles.

Stylish Blogger Award


So Thank you to the lovely Joy at Alex Drake Vintage for awarding me with the prestigious Stylish blogger award :)
I've not really been putting my all into my blog recently and I feel really bad about it. I really enjoy doing it i can just never find the time anymore since moving back to Leeds and starting my new job. I'm making a promise to myself that every day off i have to post at least once. I need to get back in touch with fashion, feel like i know nothing about what's going on currently!
ANYWAY, thanks to Joy, I feel included in this lovely little fashion bloggers circle.
Part of receiving the award means having to share 7 facts about yourself, so here goes...

1. I have a strange looking birthmark on my back called a strawberry mark. When wearing backless tops people always thinks its a bruise or graze, and i have to explain. My dad used to say it's called a strawberry mark because in the summer when strawberries are in season it appears redder. (and I genuinely think it does!) It's a nice story and i like to believe it still. A little permanent strawberry on my back, ahh.

2. I'm not a natural ginger! Although people are always shocked when i tell them this. I just have a natural auburn hue as a result of dyeing.

3. My dad was a big Fleetwood Mac fan and as a result I was named after the song 'Rhiannon'. The song tells of a Welsh goddess with magical powers. I never really listened to the song until about 3 years ago, and once I did I really appreciated how good of a band Fleetwood Mac are. Stevie Nicks is one of my idols.

4. One of my favourite colours is black. I know it's dark and grungy and has the whole gothic vibe, but i really think black is brilliant. It doesn't have to be gothic at all, unless you're head to toe in it and have black lace and net (that's probs taking the goth vibe to another level). I will probably wear one item of clothing that is black everyday. AND I PROMISE I NEVER LOOK GOTHY. I hope.

5. One day I want to own a Chanel 2.55 bag. Chanel is my number 1 when it comes to fashion, and in a dream world i'd love to have everything Chanel, and be one of those classy older ladies with a tweed twinset and pearls. But alas, I will never be crazy rich and so for now I'd just like a bag. And maybe some pumps. ha.

6. My favourite drink is water. I'm not even joking. Everyday i always have my RDA, and it's out of choice. I've been the same since i was younger, and i genuinely think there is nothing more refreshing than a chilled glass of iced water.

7. I wish i read more books. Recently someone inspired me to get back into it and although they're now long gone, I really have taken the opportunity to take some time out of my day and sit down and read. I'm trying to make sundays my day when for a few hours, I don't go on my mac/phone/internet or watch any TV. I don't watch a lot of telly anyway but my computer is one my dearest possessions. (Pretty lame i know) and I'm probably on it for about 5 hours a day. ANYWAY, these few hours recently on sundays have been spent going for a bike ride or reading or cooking. Getting away from the world for a short time anyway. I think a lot of people rely too much on the internet and tv and I don't want to become one of them.

So there we go, 7 facts. Now you know a bit more about me. So, i guess the next step is passing this on to 7 other bloggers. hmmmm.

WEIRD WEIRD VIDEO BUT SO GOOD


Love this song, I hear it at work 7 times and hour and i still can't get enough. Really wish i'd gone to see them at the Brudenell social club the other week. DANG. The new album is great.

Some old Today i'm wearing... that i forgot to upload. SORRY!!!

I hate having to do photo's like this in my mirror, but unfortunately i live alone so can't get anyone to take them for me. It's the worst. I am dead jelly of all those fashion bloggers that have beautiful photo's on their blog that someone has taken for their "Today i'm wearing.."
So here are my rookie shots
The last few pictures show my maxi skirt and rucksack from my Topshop wishlists.

Mustard floral maxi dress from Rare@Topshop, and vintage gold chain from eBay

Crucifix ring from Urban Outfitters, 'Geography teacher' nail polish from Topshop
