I was ment to do this post a few days ago but me being very unorganized, I've somehow managed to be a bit behind schedule. The other day I (and my Mum) headed to the area of Brick Lane to see the Rankin exhibiton. For those who don't know, he's a famous photographer. At first I didn't realize how many nude shots he had done but I loved seeing his shots of the many celebrities he had photogrpaher - from Jarvis Cooker to Kate Moss, Hugh Grant, Keria Knightly, Daniel Craig, Britney and Lindsay Lohans recent cover shots for Elle Magazine. I think I like Rankin so much is that his photographs are simple, with plain backgrounds and no really showbiz glitz but they are still really effective, especially the close ups.
I also managed to meet him and rather shyly we had a small conversation.
Anyway, I couldn't resist going into a few shops, especailly all of the vintage botiques around Cheshire Street which I love.
In the end I limited myself to two beautiful pieces. The first is a off-white coloured cardigan with lace, bow and pearl beads detailing, I just love how its so detailed and pretty. Its from the laden showroom, on of my favourite shops where, whenever I go to brick lane, I always buy something.
The other item is a vintage white cricket sweater from beyond retro, I've been after one for a while and was actually debating buying my school cricket jumper that all the boys have to have but this vintage one - with its cute little buttons - is way better!
Both of the pictures look so much better in real life, its hard to properly photograph something thats really pale!
Finally, thank you so much to everyone who commented on my last post, I appreciate every word and to Jazz in particular, you can find her amazing blog here. She did this great picture of me and I really want to say thanks for taking time to draw me and I'm really flattered!
Again, I know this hasn't been the most fashion-filled post but I am planning to do a photo shoot soon!
How was your weekend?
