Quarantine Look: 2

Hi everyone, hope you’re all keeping safe and well! I’ve decided to document my quarantine looks since I’ve been trying to drive my blog back to the outfit inspiration platform I had initially made it to be. This look was worn on Easter, and I love how girly and kind of shabby chic it looks- a side of me that exists but people rarely see. This dress is from one of my favorite independent brands and Topshop “Lace and Beads”. If you’re into girly, romantic, frilly clothing or pastels it’s definitely a brand I’d check out. Then I just paired it with some nude strapped Jessica Simpson heels.

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.

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.

The View

Always be grateful..

While my parents were in London, we went out to Westminster to meet with my dad’s friend. The sun was shining, and the breeze was perfect, and I just had a moment where I felt extremely grateful. I always feel grateful, but this time was so different. I just felt like I was exactly where I was meant to be, and I was doing everything I’m meant to, and I rarely have that feeling. The second photo is the background of the first photo, through my eyes. And what I saw while I was thinking about everything it took for me to get to where I am now. There’s not many photos in this post, but I just felt like sharing 🙂

Golden Birthday

Looking back on one of the best days..

On September 20th (yes I’m extremely late haha) I celebrated my 20th birthday, which was also my Golden Birthday! It was one of the most special birthdays I’ve ever had and I felt so grateful and loved, even though I’m 1000’s of miles away from the rest of my friends and family. Sadly this was also my first day of school, but I made the most of the day and still enjoyed it.
To start the day, I had breakfast at The Grand cafe in Green Park with my parents, and rushed to class after. After class, we went to Wildwood in Covent Garden, and to Milk Train for dessert (MY FAV). Throughout the day other little things happened that made me feel really special but I’ll spare you all the details. Needless to say, it was just a really good day.

The Attic

One of my favorite shoots to create and model for..

Over the summer, I styled a 90’s/early 2000s inspired photoshoot and I enjoyed it so much. I’ve been modeling since i was 14 years old, and I love every bit of it. The photoshoots, the networking, the fashion shows, the list goes on. But I also love the creative side behind the scenes: styling, creative direction, etc. So I try to do collaborations with local photographers as much as I can. Here are some of my favorite shots from the shoot below.

Enjoy! XO- Ally
