ICANT THINK OF A TITLE i will changethis

Gold tunic dress - £30 eBay
Black suede skirt - £10 eBay
Shoes - Docs £23 eBay

I wanted to post this while I still have golden blonde hair (may be bleaching it platinum-ish this week) because it matches the dress. By the way, the hideous top knot I have at the moment is to hide the fringe/bangs regrowth I have - it isn't long enough to put behind my ears but is baso just hanging there otherwise.

I wore this dress to this thing sixth form gets at my school called Winter Ball back in November or December(???). I had black 70s platform heels from Office on as well and despite turning up literally looking like a drowned rat (it was raining & my hair is naturally curly so with a regrowing fringe the state I was in was pretty tragic) the event itself was good. I have pictures on a roll of film somewhere.

Coat - Mango £30

Not sure anyone has used the school bike sheds for outfit pictures before (cringe).

The empty tongue and groove'd frame behind me is a noticeboard DIY my mum attempted and has concurrently neglected (it used to be in our shop though).

Below are some really old film pictures - probably from September through November.

I spent a good deal of time from the end of August to mid October trying to force any willing subject to go to this run down cafe near my house (the one in some photos). Unfortunately the film I used was a new one so I wasn't used to how it handled exposure and a few came out quite dark. When the table in the last photo cleared we tried to sit there (I wanted photos with the reflection on the wall in them) and uncharacteristically I even asked the man who was hovering at the time whether we could take it and have him take ours (the exact same on the opposite side just without the reflection)  but he refused and it has angered me for months. Some of the others are in an arcade in town and the other one interval at school.

  7. Great photos. I particularly like the last one with the cafe reflection. There's a Philip Lorca di Corcia feel to it.


  8. I agree with the above comment, plus I've noticed how you seem to have been progressing as a photographer, you take some really lovely photographs (hopefully that doesn't sound condescending) Also you seem to be an ebay queen, I would definitely be interested in a post about how you find such great ebay steals.
