Hello. This is my first day guest blogging and taking over from the beautiful stylista that is Amanda Blackwood. I’m in my studio at university prepping for a 1950s themed ‘Homecoming’ shoot. You could say my obsession for American pop culture and penchant for anything retro filter into my personal style. Doing freelance styling work out with university means I have an appreciation for designer trends, high street and vintage finds. I love anything quirky and humorous this gives me the confidence to have fun wearing whatever I want.
Today I’m wearing a bright floral new spring/summer River Island jumpsuit which is flattering to any body shape. The jumpsuit itself comes with a detachable belt that I have swapped for a large Moschino belt to draw attention to cinching my waist, a clever stylist trick for creating an hour glass appearance.
I love wearing scarfs, they save many a bad hair day and add a cute retro twist. This vintage one is from Pie In The Sky in Cockburn Street Edinburgh, who have the sweetest shop staff ever. My heel boots and cat purse are both from New Look. I finish this laid back retro look of by using cult lipstick Mac Ruby Woo.
