FIRST WINTER LOOK

Hey loves, hows it going?

It has been a long time since my last post, I have been mega mega busy with my new job but I am so happy to finally have time to document my look today. So, for me, days off and holidays are all about family. I was so happy to finally get some time to spend with my sister. We love getting ready together, giving makeup tips, helping each other,  On top of everything, she takes my pictures. I can’t thank her enough for that.

Anyways, today we went out for dinner to our fav Italian restaurant to catch. Obviously before dinner she took my pictures which I will add to this post.

Todays look: I wore most of my fav winter pieces from my wardrobe. Fur Coat from River Island, my super comfy ankle boots from DUNE LONDON, my fav vintage leather bag.

What do you guys think of my winter look?

Middle Eastern Storm- Live Project with Atelier Mayer

Good Morning lovers,

Today is my day off,which is well needed after 6hours of snowboarding yesterday.

I wanted to share some of my work from last year before I go out to produce more work for you guys. This was one of my favourite projects, collaborating with Atelier Mayer (thank you so much for giving me these beautiful pieces for my shoot) which sadly closed down last year.

As you all know, I am very multi cultural and I love the beauty of every culture. This shoot was dedicated to Middle Eastern culture, from the images you will see why.

So, as you all know fashion shoots don’t just happen, they take a lot of planning and time. Before even thinking about my shoot I had to research about Atelier Mayer and make a wish list of what I wanted to use and email it to them for authorisation before going to collect the garments I had selected. Obviously when I got there not everything I wanted was available, I had to make quick decisions and choose alternatives. Thinking about my Middle Eastern theme, all I knew was I wanted clothes that were heavey beaded.

Photography 

My images were produced by having good studio lighting and the aperture of the camera, making sure the backdrop is the right colour (not too light or dark). Tear sheets and mood boards were also used from a numerous of magazines to have a clear idea of what was being expected from the shoot. Mood boards and story boards were created for the hair,make up and poses of the model that was expected from the shoot.

To make sure the shoot was successful, test shots of the model and poses were taking in advance. Location shoot was also done but was not a great success due to adverse weather (Yes shoots always go wrong, but you have to be a quick thinker and always have a back up plan, I had to use my test shots for this projects)

My Model

I was able to direct the model- who is my friend, she is soo beautiful and amazing at modelling, easy and friendly girl to communicate with.

I can talk about this shoot all day and explain in much more detail why I love it so much but attaching some images will probably make it easier for you to appreciate. I will let the images do the rest of talking. Hope you guys like it.

How I put my work together

Obviously, After the hair, makeup, styling and photography was done, I went through all the pictures and selected my favourite ones to edit. I always try my hardest and make sure photographs are taking well so I don’t spend long editing them – Anyways, After I selected my images I played around with photoshop and had to make my images presentable. I created a LookBook using InDesign and also added more details related to my theme.  Now wordpress won’t allow me to upload the whole look book but I screenshot some of it for you guys to see.

If the colour fits, wear it

Hey guys,

I hope you all had a lovely week, great weekend and amazing Valentines day. Did anyone do anything Exciting? I spent the day producing some work, planning some shoots and shopping of course.

So, recently I have been dressing too much in the colour black and dark clothes, my excuse was the cold weather. Today I realised that shouldn’t be the excuse and I definitely need some colour in my life and clothes. While shopping and looking for some inspirations I came across this gorgeous colourful skirt from French Connection. It was like love at first site, and obviously I will buy it, without even thinking about how to style it. So i spent a couple of hours scraping my wardrobe and looking for other items of clothing to style this skirt. and here is my look.

I hope you guys like it.

ADDICTED TO BLACK

Yes!!! I have been addicted to the colour black for as long as I can remember. I don’t know if its the absent of colour that I like or just the simplicity of BLACK.

Few days ago, I was window shopping (yes I do this every month before payday to make a wish list of what I want to buy) and I came across this beautiful leather skirt in Miss Selfridge SALE section for ONLY £15 . Even though I am petite and under size 6, they only had this skirt in size 8. Ofcourse, I am going to buy it if I like it and keep it in my wardrobe.

I have never been a fan of leather skirts, but what I love about this skirt is the length. For a size 8 woman this will be a lovely midi skirt but for me it is a little longer than midi size and this is what I liked about it. I could brighten this style up by adding colour but I kept it all black with my fav gold fringe necklace and navy heels.

I was only going out for coffee by the Docs in southampton and this outfit was perfect for the occasion, to finish the look and to make the black stand out a little I wore my Imperial wool coat from French Connection  (my fav coat this year). I am mega mega excited for French Connection’s SS15 collection, I have already made a wish list of clothes I want.

I will post the styled images of the collection soon.

Finally heres my look – The pictures were taken in the dar so may not be good quality. Apology for that.

I never have my hair this curly, But someone left their curler in my room and I took full advantage of it.

More post soon

stay tuned
