Strange Days Have Found Us




 Skirt: Free People   |   Woolly Ape Jacket: Mink Pink @ Market HQ   |   Boots: Betts   |   Mickey Mouse Skull Ring: Boticca

Winter is not a fashion blogger's favourite time, because it gets increasingly harder to find the moments to shoot outdoors as the rain begins to envelope each day with grey and wet wet wet.

BUT...

Winter is a fashion lover's favourite time, because there is so much more to work with; layers upon layers of textures to fulfil all of your clothes horse dreams.

BUT...

Winter is not a fashion photographer's favourite time, because the light disappears so quickly and everything looks dull and the showers interject like stabs of creative murder.

BUT...

Winter is a musician's best friend, because the days are darker and all you can do is hide in a creative little cave and write tunes and watch the night roll on round so much faster as that light disappears into the full moon hour.

So much of what we do and see and feel in this world pivots on the pinhead of perspective.
Fall to the left and things look grey. Jump to the right and grey is exactly what you're looking for.
I don't think you have to find the sunny side of every situation, just find the inspiration and the thing that makes you feel. Really feel. Good or bad. Up or down.

Strange days have found us if we can't feel that.

  2. Good read! Thanks for sharing your thoughts :) We don't have winter, but we do have crazy typhoon season which I think is equally difficult to deal with as a fashion blogger. But as you said, inspiration is out there. Love your skirt! And nice hair style :)

  9. I agree! It's so hard to pick the right time to take fashion shots because it gets dark so quickly! Love your style. :)
