Alexander McQueen

i love a good McQueen exhibit

I recently stopped by the Alexander McQueen London flagship store to see the latest exhibition and there were so many glorious and one of a kind pieces that made me feel  so inspired and excited!

I took photos of some of my favorite pieces that were on display and inserted them below for you to have a look, of course. I am in LOVE with the pops of pink and the stunning flower inspired shapes (I’m a big flower person if you didn’t know). My absolute favorites are the hot pink sleeved suit jacket and blue died floral inspired dress, and I found the jute (i think?) dress with the leather harness so unique.

What are your favorites?   XO- Ally

A Weekend in Milano

A week in Milano❤️

Milano is one of the most magical places I’ve ever been to (especially during the holiday season). For as long as I could remember, I’ve dreamed of going to Italy and eating my favorite foods, drinking wine, and shopping. Sadly I only had a weekend to do all of that, but it was one of the best weekends of my life. A friend of mine was living there for a few months, so I bought a plane ticket, planned my trip, and left London on Black Friday weekend.

Everything just seemed oddly familiar to me, like I’d visited before. It was exactly what I thought it would be like, yet nothing like what I thought at the same time. But I must say, the food was EXACTLY what I thought it would be like. Fresh, flavorful and to DIE for. Best pasta and bruschette I’ve ever had.

There was so much culture and history everywhere that I went, and I could just feel it there. Everything was so beautiful and it sometimes felt like I stepped back in time.

It’s definitely a place I want to visit again in the future, and hopefully you and I both will get the change to tour the rest of Italy! And of course, eat all the food.

Winter Wonderland

winter wonderland 2019

Winter Wonderland 2019 wasn’t as action packed as 2018’s, but it was fun all the same. My 2 girlfriends and I went out during the week while it wasn’t too crowded, ate some sweets and rode the weakest and most sane rides possible. One of my friends brought her disposable camera and took some shots of us to sum up the evening. See what we got up to below haha.

2020

Happy new year!

Happy New Year! It’s been a while since I’ve posted on here, and I just came to say I’m back. I’ve noticed that I post consistently for a while, and then abandon you all for a little while due to lack of inspiration (if I’m honest). But excuses ASIDE, it’s a new year! I really want to start putting in the work to produce things I like on all my platforms, because I have a really good feeling that all that work will pay off! I’d like to post more skincare and travel content on my youtube channel (so please subscribe if you’re not already!) which is in the “Youtube” tab at the top of my website.

On this blog I want to post more thoughts, lifestyle, advice and fashion content so stay tuned for that if you’re interested !

Anyway, here are some photos from New Years Eve night (Dress & Earrings: Topshop and Purse: ASOS). Hopefully I will stock to my plan, and upload more things on here for you all.

See you soon!

Glam Rock

I recently styled 3 looks in response to the Glam Rock subculture of the 70s.

I recently styled 3 looks in response to the Glam Rock subculture of the 70s. I looked to the greatest fashion icons of the time for inspiration, including Bowie, Marc Bolan, and Elton John (at the start of his career). As you can see I had so much fun with the colors and textures, including sequins, glitter, and metallics. My style is usually 90s grunge or 2000s Britney spears era inspired, so this was a huge contrast to me, but I absolutely LOVED the challenge and the outcome. I hope you all enjoy!

The Butterfly Effect 2

Part 2 from my butterfly photoshoot series.

I love coming up with concepts and modeling them myself. I love styling people and producing other shoots, but I also love being in front of the camera, because I get to create the kind of outcome I want, you know? It’s one of my only ways of creative expression, I love it.

Manchester

24 hours in Manchester…

I recently spend 24 hours in Manchester visiting my sister, and I was so surprised by how my I enjoyed. First and foremost, let’s talk about the Intu Trafford Center shopping mall. THE most amazing mall I’ve ever seen/been to in my life. Not to mention, that I found a stall with the best candy floss I’ve tasted. My sister and I haven’t spent much time together before this trip, so it was nice to do a bit of retail therapy, get lunch, and take busses and ubers all over Manchester for a day.

Later that night, we went mini golfing at the Roxy Ballroom, which was one of the hardest mini golf coursed I’ve done, but it was so fun and I really enjoyed it.

 

For Bay West

Over the summer, I was apart of a photoshoot for an up and coming local skincare brand, created by a lovely friend of mine. The shoot was so dreamy and the photos came out so beautiful, that I wanted to share them on here, as I can’t post them all on instagram haha. So have a look through and enjoy.
