Old, New, Borrowed, Blue

13 Feb

I did a bridal photoshoot for Eclectic Eccentricity the other week! As I have no plans to get married, it’s always fun to see myself in a wedding dress- and I think it’s a “must-do” for every girl as they’re just so pretty! (As in, try on a wedding dress, not get married!)

Here’s a behind-the-scenes I’ve yoinked from their Instamatic: 🙂

As you can see from photographer Charlotte Rutherford’s stylish bobble hat, it was beyond freezing, but we had a lot of fun and I’ll show you more behind-the-scenes when I have final edits too…

While there, I was given the finished lookbook from our last shoot! Here are a few pages… (sorry for the bad cameraphone pics- my scanner isn’t speaking to me at the moment.)

And here are some of my favourite pictures from the shoot!

Photographer: Charlotte Rutherford
Jewellery: Eclectic Eccentricity
Clothes: Retreat Vintage
Hair/Make-up: Ria Lingwood

I love that bee necklace!!! 😀

And for Lucy (the jewellery designer)’s birthday, a friend photoshopped Wendell the mascot into one of the pictures…
“Ishysquishy cutesy ickle birdykins…”
“Get this crazy lady off me!!!”
He’s lovely, that Wendell. 🙂

On Saturday, I did my first fashion show of the year, for Playful Promises. It was an outdoor (mostly) lingerie show and while we were in hair and make-up, people were de-icing the runway (!!!)

Despite the obvious chill, we had a lot of fun, discovered an energy drink called “Pussy”, and many of us treated outselves to some new lingerie (coming to a photoshoot near you…) 😉

Anita De Bauch looking lovely!

I’ve forgotten what was so funny but…

Me with Jess:

And as I got on the train with a bag of sexiness and another of sushi, I decided to treat myself to an upgrade. It was so lovely seeing the sun set over the docklands- and for those of you who get excited over these things, I saw a buzzard, three deer, two hares and a fox on the way home. 😀

Speak to you soon…

    You ladies are lovely! Too bad I can never do runway work… 😥

    Your hair, skin and eyeshadow make an amazingly stunning combo in addition to the sweet EE accessories!

    Oh and Happy Valentine’s Day! I hope you have something special planned! I am just going to text my beau endlessly as we’re distances apart…

      Awww, thanks! You probably can- I’m technically too short but occasionally get booked and it’s the same with Anita.

      Happy V-Day to you (sorry it’s late!) Hope you get to see him soon!

        Well, you ladies are 5’6 right? That’s easily remedied by heels, unlike my teensy height of 5’2, unless I put on sky-high platforms or ballet heels…

        Thanks for the wish! I am planning to head back to my hometown soon!

          I’m 5’7 and I think Anita is 5’8. Sometimes designers look for petite models- just keep your ears out 🙂
