Styled in Celia
Just a few days ago one of my dearest friends, Katie, sent over a link to a treasure trove of a Photobucket account, full of of pictures that we’d taken aged 15 and in our last year of school. Apparently our favourite pastime was taking photos in toilets and pulling silly faces. It made me come over all nostalgic and wishing that I could go back in time. Then I sat down to edit this set of pictures, and I realised that things aren’t really all that different now. The faces might be different, and we may have bigger cameras and shinier shoes, but these girls make me feel 15 again. I’m so pleased to have found a bunch of ladies that enjoy laughing as much as I do. Whenever I’m asked what my favourite thing about blogging is, my answer is always the same: the friends I’ve made.
All that soppy stuff aside, we were all styled up in an item from Celia Birtwell’s debut collection for Uniqlo. Such a fun collaboration – I was excited to see what everybody had picked to match their personality. I opted for a star print dress, whilst Dunya, Kristabel, Olivia and Lucy had gone for other pretty printed pieces, like floral shirts and bright culottes. The prints in the collection are reminiscent of Celia’s famous prints from the ’60s and ’70s – and you know how hard I find it to resist a good vintage-inspired print! The collection isn’t in stores until the 21st, so write it in your diaries – everything is so cheap<3
I couldn’t help but pair my outfit with this quite frankly ridiculous cat bag that I found on ASOS Marketplace. It certainly divided opinions when I posted it on Instagram, but I love it! It got a fair few funny looks on the tube – but I always take that as a sign that I’m doing something right ; ) x
