hey Rosalyn, tell me where you been (Brighton part 2)

Thursday, 9 May 2013

As you know, I went to Brighton last weekend, and on sunday morning (after a huge bowl of amazing porridge and strawberries) I decided to do a little photoshoot on the beach. I personally love pebble beaches...all the pros of a beach, with none of the sand that always seems to stay with you several days after your visit. I actually went back to the beach later that day, and ended up falling completely asleep in the sun, which was amazing and so blissful I can't even describe it properly.



I wore a few of the things I got on saturday, including my £5 real cashmere red polo neck, which I'm a little bit in love with at the moment. I wore it underneath this awesome shirt/dress from Beyond Retro (I'm wearing shorts too but you just can't see them). My shoes are my little off-white boots that I found in the vintage emporium. They fit me perfectly and are the most beautiful things I own at the moment. My bag was my mum's, and my tights are from H&M. Sunglasses are from camden market.

(Petra and her dress are just so perfect)

I wore purple lipstick for some bizarre reason, and some cute little rubber duck earrings. I quite enjoyed the weird looks I got.




(remember you can win one of my handmade flower crowns just like this one along with a bunch of other cool stuff here:


Some inspiration I felt went with this outfit's vibe. Made by taking a screenshot of my tumblr archive.





(from Rookie and tumblr)

I'm totally feeling some 70's vibes at the moment, maybe because I'm doing so much work on that decade for my current art project (which seems to centre around David Bowie). The fashion was amazing. I do love me some flares.

  2. Hi, Ellie! I admire you for feeling free to express your individual taste in clothing. You look fabulous. Your story reminds me of the lyrics to a favorite song of mine released on 45rpm in May of 1970, "Spill the Wine" by Eric Burdon and War:

    I was once out strolling one very hot summer's day
    When I thought I'd lay myself down to rest
    In a big field of tall grass
    I laid there in the sun and felt it caressing my face
    As I fell asleep and dreamed

    I am enjoying your blog, Ellie, and I wish you a happy weekend!
