Styling: Polina S

As an aspiring stylist I think the hardest thing is lugging around bags of shoes and clothes, trekking it 3 hours at 8am in the morning on public transport for a two hour shoot in which the weather is cold, windy and to put it frankly we all got sand in our eyes. Not ideal. The best part though has got to be getting the pictures back to build up your portfolio and have the actual result in front of you of all the hard work you've put in.

I had my stunning best friend Polina come and model for us and with Ella H doing makeup and hair and of course my favourite photographer Alyssa, pulling together an all up beautiful shoot.

2014 MTV Video Music Awards Fashion

With any awards show, someone takes the cake, someone stacks it and someone rocks it. And of course with any awards show, all eyes are on the fashion and the red carpet.

Trend: Lace

Looking through the Spring Summer 14 shows on style.com I found lace appearing in show after show. Big names like Burberry, Valentino, House of Holland, Celine and Roberto Cavalli all seem to have adopted this trend into their collections.

Typically a lightweight fabric, lace is sheer and can be made booth by hand or by machine and is known for its beautiful  delicate and intricate aesthetics. It's also seen a lot on formal and bridal wear which has celebrities dominating the fabric on every red carpet.

Outfit Post 4

Trodding around in Sarah’s shoes not only gave me a semi confidence boost (which didn’t help to sway the awkwardness behind the camera but was worth a shot) but it also gave me a boost in height, finally bringing me up to her level. Needless to say she didn’t like me being the same height as her as we’re all used to me being the short one.

Platform shoes are not only hard to walk in but when they are three sizes to big it does make the matter harder. Walking around in her shoes made me feel like a child again, walking around in mums big shoes pretending I was ‘all growned up’. Actually this whole outfit makes me feel like a child again, especially since I’m so used to parading around in all black.

Every time I wear these pants I get either a) compliments or b) weird looks. Either is fine with me and it’s kind of my happy go to outfit. It’s so hard to fit colour into every day outfits and though this may be going a tad overboard…well it’s fun. What can ya do?

the famous head tilt, my head is also the same colour as the wall
So besides stacking it multiple times, we found some random white wall which didn’t make me look orange and got to shooting. Although looking like a kid wasn't exactly the look I was going for, most of the pictures turned out with me looking fairly childish. But, like I said, it’s fun. And technically, as an 18 year old, I am still a child.
