I'm delighted to announce that I've finally finished that horribly time-consuming history coursework, so I'm freeee now to do as much blogging/shopping/sewing as I want :) yay! I've spent the last few days relaxing, playing monopoly (booo, I lost) and doing a spot of vintage shopping with the boyfriend. Hoping to dust off my sewing machine tomorrow and re-start my clothes 'production line'!
Anyway, today, after donning an outfit involving a houndstooth polo-neck (thrifted for £1) I had a sudden moment of inspiration to take some 60s-style photos. I didn't originally intend to post them up because they were really a spur of the moment kind of thing (I very nearly ran out of natural light as well, hence the graininess). But I was really pleased with how they turned out, so here they are! They're a bit of a reference to Op-Art, mixed up with some old photos of Twiggy and a nice dose of mod style.
Thumbs up for beehives, fake eyelashes and red lipstick!
You may notice that my arms are in the air in every photo - thats because I had to hold up the 'background', haha.
As it happens, the background is hopefully going to be the fabric for my next sewing project - but I haven't decided what to make yet! What do you think, a dress, or a jacket?
