poor little rich girl

Hello lovelies! 

It seems as though my following is slowly but very surely growing.  Thank you all for reading, hopefully this blog is the start of something very exciting, and I hope you all continue to read and enjoy :)

As some of you may know, I am a student of fashion journalism (I studied fashion design for 3 years at college, but had some sort of epiphany and decided my life-long passion for writing was my true calling!)

Art, design and illustration will always be a massive part of my life, despite me choosing what some may call a more 'conventional' path in my education.  Yes, I do love writing, but I dearly hope someday I can be involved in the design industry.

I have decided to share some photographs with you of a recent fashion spread I photographed for a project in university, along with the help of my amazing fashion friends! 

We collectively worked, and styled a photoshoot on the theme 'Money's Too Tight To Mention', and the following images are what we created- rather beautiful even if I say so myself.  We came up with the idea of jazzing up old items of clothing with the occasional on-trend piece, perfect for students and those on a tight budget.

I used some of the money from my 21st birthday to buy a professional camera, the Fujifilm Finepix HS20. I know I will get very good use out of it- next year when I put my own magazine together for a final year project, and now, providing you all with original images for my blog- which I hope you all love.

I convinced my rather gorgeous friend, Amiee, to model for us.  I would totally work the black lipstick look, but I don't think I'd pull it off as well as she does...

We wanted a dark gothic vibe for some of the pictures, and we managed to be granted access to use our local Minster as one of the locations we shot at, which was absolutely brilliant.

Obviously this wasn't shot inside the church! ^

Love the lighting on this photograph.  She looks angelic with the light radiating from behind her!

Until next time, au revoir x
