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.

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

Dotted

A quick OOTD

Just a little outfit of the day to show you guys. I’ve been loving polka dots and flatforms, so here’s a look with how I styled both! My romper is from Zara, shoes from nordstrom rack, and purse from forever 21.

What I wore to the Miss Cayman Islands Universe pageant

I really loved this look. This is what I wore to the Miss Cayman Islands Universe pageant a few days ago. Believe it or not, I bought this suit on sale at Topshop! Definitely one of my best sale finds to date lol. Underneath, I wore a little ribbed bralette from Pink and my simple everyday accessories.

Instyle Cayman

Last month, I was apart of a new local fashion show that involved beautiful designs and lovely people. I was lucky to have 8 looks (very hectic) in the main show, and one in the pre-show. I wish I could model every day. I love runway and editorial, and love modeling so much. I hope to get into it semi professionally for a bit just to experiment! Anyway, here are some of my looks below.
