My dream of having a vintage-style photoshoot has finally been fulfilled! Okay, in part, but this has come very close.
One of my closest friends, Emma, is doing a fashion journalism portfolio for university, and asked me to be her model for the day—to which, of course, I said ‘yes’!
We took the pictures in and around her house since her interior designing skills are kind of goals.
Look 1: Breakfast At Tiffany’s
Check out that floral wallpaper! Though we haven’t really had proper spring weather here, it’s getting a bit warmer now.
I feel like this look leans a bit towards Breakfast At Tiffany’s; what do you think? The evening gloves, the cat on the bed…(that’s Emma’s cat, Bob—he’s nearly one year old—and he’s a pretty good model!).
OUTFIT: Dress – Zara / Shoes – Topshop / Bag – Arkwright’s Emporium / Gloves – Vintage / Ring – New Look / Necklace – gift / Earrings – Miss Selfridge
LOOK 2: Riviera Reverie
This look makes me think of summer on the French Riviera—or something I’d wear on a cruise in the forties or fifties. Also, that belt is actually from the strap of a handbag! You do what you’ve got to do, right?
I want to mention: this is my first time with cat-eye liner in six five years, and now I wish I did it more often!

LOOK 3: Dressed For Dinner
Going glam for this look, with the demure black and flashy white and gold. And I am so in love with those chandelier earrings from New Look!
Vintage queen, Audrey Hepburn, being my inspiration, today and everyday. Obviously.

LOOK 4: Girl About Town
Channeling Faye Dunaway in ‘Bonnie and Clyde‘ and Suzy Bishop in Wes Anderson’s ‘Moonrise Kingdom‘ for this part of the photoshoot. Also, I wish I wore a beret more often.
