From my experience, the only thing that can settle my annual restlessness for the summer to begin is a new summer wardrobe. Exhibit A- Topshop scallop fringe shorts- One part of what will inevitably be an excessively large summer closet. For £34 these shorts were the perfect fix for my ever-expanding obsession for chiffon and scallop trims! In the designated summer piles, the shorts are grouped with numerous injections of canary yellows, light denims and abstract floral prints.
Although I admit that I have strayed away from bright colours in the past, for this summer, I expect them to be a staple requirement to my outfits. Currently, I am lusting after a pastel orange nail polish and a bright orange/vermilion lipstick- which to my disappointment MAC no longer has in stock!
I thought it only suitable in the above photographs to use my current read as a prop- Mrs Dalloway by Virginia Woolf (which I hope some may have recognised my title's quote from).

After a long struggle to find the perfect working 120mm film camera, I present to you the newest addition to my camera collection....
The Kodak Brownie Reflex! (£4!)
I am yet to order the suitable film for the camera, however, I will definitely post the results of finished rolls. The camera carries the same and familiar odour of my vintage binoculars and tea-set- a definite indication of it's history and decadence!
I apologise for the short post, I have constantly been on my feet- either at school or at home doing more work! Also, recently I have been photographing small-scale events, the product garments of my fashion students friends and even some bridal photography- with this all keeping me busy, I have found it difficult to fit in blog posts. I have not posted as planned about my night at London Fashion Weekend- however, a full featured post about our visit can be seen at Vintage Stop! I hope everyone had a good weekend!
Lots of love,
