First of all...HAPPY NEW YEAR! Hope you all had a great New Year's eve, and wishing you all the best for the New Year!
Anyhow, I'm in Malvern, which is caressed by marshy green fields and hills, among ice glazed ponds. It's so great to have a change of scene, and moreover the fresh air, compared to London- though I'll always be a town girl at heart. The house is great for photos...CLEAR WHITE WALLS! Plus the surrounding fields will be great for photos/photo shoot; hopefully you'll see them in my next post. So as you can see I made use of the clear walls, to do a long awaited outfit post. I'm not too fond of outfit posts, I feel they lack substance and are for vanities sake. So to add some of that substance, I edited the photos and tried to add an edge with effects. Inspired by the likes of Anna Sui to Miu Miu SS11, combined with the influential Isabella Blow. Then to top it all off, the cultural christmas atmosphere, with winter fairgrounds, full of traditional merry-go-rounds. Trying to express fun, added with sophistication.
There's no way of putting an outfit together without being inspired, and as always I remind myself the cliche saying 'Fashion is Art', maybe one could call me pretentious. Though Art is to the eyes' beholder, and if done well and sustainable, fashion can be an example too. Note: I believe Fashion is giving meaning to the garments through numerous ways, but not wearing the latest trends, following the crowd and just taking outfit photos- that is trend.
Plus I'm thinking of doing a few Article Style posts, just wondering if that would that go down well?
