This outfit is akin to what I would wear on a typical day in which I had a lesson at the school where I take my media class (the dress code there is smart whereas my home school does not have one). I know you're probably thinking "isn't smart blazers and flats?" well this is as good as it's going to get. I rediscovered this shirt while cleaning out my wardrobe earlier and I decided to give it an outing as the weather was nice and called for light and bright clothing. As the shirt is quite ethereal and floaty I decided to toughen it up by tucking it loosely into a leather skater skirt. A key part of my style is juxtaposing elements, be it fabrics or colours or trends which is demonstrated clearly in this outfit. I decided to wear these powder blue socks with my creepers as the soft flecks of glitter subtly compliments the galaxy pattern on the shirt.
I was shooting photographs for my media coursework and I really love the outcome of one particular image. My theme is "beauty ideals and how they have changed" and one of the tasks I was set by my teacher was to create a poster for a new E4 (creators of Skins and Misfits) drama based on a group of girls that defy the generic conventions of beauty. I opted for a simple but powerful style and I hope you like it!
