Into the woods lookbook

I am so incredibly fascinated by fiction and fairy tales- princesses, pirates, animals you name it so themed posts are always fun for me. This is the second look book I shot with photographer Przemslaw Grabowski (see western post).

I'd watched the film Into The Woods a few months back, and I just fell in love with the whole theme; the woods, little red riding hood, the costumes, the music. I decided to shoot my interpretation, I'm not dressed as characters etc but I went down the whole little red riding hood(or in this case little cream riding hood) girl lost in the woods theme.

My dress is from Jones and Jones UK, and I seriously just adore the whole brand; their dresses are just so fun, girly and you really do feel amazing in them. I own about 6 now and a lot of them are classic pieces that you can just wear time and time again. My mum is always digging out vintage clothing from her wardrobe from when she was my age and I can't help but think how adorable it would be to share these with my own daughters/sons one day! 

Jones and Jones dresses are designed and made in the UK which is another thing I love, I find that authentic UK sourced/made products are a rarity these days. I feel like I could babble on for ages about how much I love them so here are a few bullet points to speed up the process:

-They fit beautifully 
-There are so many beautiful varieties of dresses, patterns, shapes.
-You can dress them up or down
-If you are girly, you've found the right brand
-UK made
-The signature fit and flare shape is extremely flattering on all shapes and sizes

 I bought my first Jones and Jones dress on my 16th birthday from Topshop (in my lfw post) and from that day I fell in love with the them!

Again I just love creating themed posts time to time, being a model and blogger gives me the opportunity to combine both my style and shooting and I just can not get enough! 

Also torrential rain here guys...excuse the makeup that had melted off my face. But other than that I really hope you enjoy!

If there are any themes you would like to see me create do let me know, I'd love to know your ideas!

London meetings and shopping on a budget!

Hello again! Apologies for the lack of posting recently, if i'm honest I just haven't had the time to blog but I have lots lined up in the next few weeks so keep an eye out!

Today's post is my OOTD, I went to London today for a meeting with the Wearisma team. It was just a casual day but I wanted to make an effort!

I'm wearing the cutest pinafore from Boohoo, I HATE skirt shopping... anything with a skirt. I'm quite tall(hence my URL) so finding a skirt with a bit of length is the most challenging thing in the world! I really love the pinafore as it's in between slouchy and tight, so it's perfect for walking around and sitting in and is super comfortable plus I just love the colour.

I paired my pinafore with a simple black roll neck from Dorothy Perkins. Bad move Mon. I chose the worst day to wear a jumper London was so so hot I could have cried! I'd also wear crop tops under this for hotter weather...I should have taken this advice for today!

I got these boots from the boohoo sale, shock I know another sale item but I find that buying winter stock in the summer saves you so many pennies as I've noticed before that shops just bump up the price of certain sale items as soon as it hits autumn/winter again. Plus black Chelsea boots are a classic style so it's not like you're going to be seasons behind! The outfit needed a little something so I found some old knee socks in my drawer. I think this is the first time I've worn knee socks since I was about 13 but yeah it happened, I quite liked them! Affordable fashion is my favorite and I find this so much with Boohoo, i'd say it's my favorite online shop right now.

To finish my look off I wore my famous 'Cross my heart' sunglasses that I wore to fashion week, everyone loved these glasses I think they're up there with my faves.

Wearisma is a fashion app that allows you to post your looks and tag the items directly from your phone;blogging on the go! Wearisma will be exclusive to everyone by hopefully the end of this year so I will keep you posted, I will leave all links at the end of this post.

Enjoy!
