When I did the 80’s Time a 50's inspired dress

Hi guys,

So a few weeks ago my lovely friend Sian and I, headed to the V&A. Club to Catwalk is an 80’s exhibition dedicated to telling the story of how club fashion heavily influenced designers, and how they translated club style to the catwalk. Sian and I were in our element because we both love vintage and of course love fashion, so seeing the marriage between the street fashion of grunge/retro/punk, etc and high-end fashion, was awesome.

The only gripe I had was that the exhibition was way too short. I wanted to see more outfits, more textures, more video clips, more everything! The outfits were amazing though, but unfortunately you couldn’t take any pictures (another huge gripe of mine) so I can’t show you my favourites, but the tweed section was dreamy.

The courtyard is so gorgeous so we thought that would be the perfect place to take photos. Now, the dress. I wanted to go über 80’s with disco pants and a trashy printed dress; I had the dress but couldn’t find the pants for love nor money. What I do have though, are some beautiful 50's vintage style dresses - this one is from Vivien of Holloway. This dress is so pretty and colourful, and I wanted to wear something that reflected my love of bold prints.

Dress & Belt: Vivien of Holloway
Cardigan: South (via Very)
Sandals: Dorothy Perkins
Sunglasses: Spitalfields Market

I've been leaving my hair naturally waving rather than using straighteners. I love it like this!

And for all those who complain I never smile in my photos – an outtake for you:

Hope you’re all well and enjoying the last day of the weekend. ‘til next time.

Love and hugs,


  1. Aww you look beautiful!

In the blogger world, success is often in reference to money or exposure. Often these two things go hand-in-hand, in that the more exposure you get the more you are in a position to ask to be paid for your work/ name/ face, etc. Blogging has become a business for many and an aspiration to even more, but are we being realistic?

Don't get me wrong, I think it's great to have ambition and to work and strive for a goal or goals, but I also think it's important to be realistic with those goals. There are so many factors that come into trying to make a blog a business. For example, bloggers whom have been able to make their blog their sole source of income are often white, slim/ slim passing, a small fat, able-bodied, cis gendered, and/ or with euro-centric beauty. There are of course other examples that correlate, but that's the starting point. Not every blogger is going to fall into that blueprint, nor should we, but unfortunately we have not yet reached a point where said…
