A Tale of the old dress

Believe me or not, but the dress I wore for this post is around 40 years old. Yes 40 years old! 
My grandad bought it to my gandma in Chicago as a present, while he was there visiting his family ;) 
Later on my mummy wore this dress  for few occassions and now is my turn, haha, what i really appreciate about the past is that the clothes were made with love and passion, the quality was uncompromising factor and people take care so much more about their clothes compare to nowadays. Seriously how many clothes now will survive and look almost like a new for 40 years? Most people shop and drop and change their closet every seasson. Maybe this is good, cos it helps to boost the economy, but personaly I tend to keep my clothes hanging in my wordrobe for ages and I buying less but try to pick a better quality. Tell me what is your shopping habits?

Today shoot feature work of two amazing photographers. I always enjoy a day out with creative open minded people, despite my shy personality, throught this photography- blog journey I've met so many talented people and get involve in plenty of projects. Thank you!

The first look is more nostalgic, it was made at Leeds studio with Steve, you can see his portfolio >here< we also shoot together the 'Sporty chic' look which was published on my blog recently.
The second look contrast perfectly with the first, it gave it a bit more dynamic and urban view. It was shoot with Phil  >portfoilo < in Manchester.  We also shoot a 'Alice in Wonderland look.


In the crowded street, you’re standing all alone.

I want to keep on dreaming.

Newland Estate lies in the valley of the River Calder between Alfofts and Stanley Ferry, and is one of the very few estates in the area that can be traced back through documents which have survived and span 900 years.  Pretty Awesome;)  Me and  Keith (The Photographer;)) went there for photoshoot to explore a bit more about this abandoned place. It is so easy to get lost!  When I was younger this area was perfect to play hide and seek game haha ^.^

The pond was noisy with frogs and the grass alive with hoppers.  Lying on my back on many a summer day with my beloved friends, staring into the bluest of blue skies I travelled far and wide, never leaving home, imagining my life to come – pretty accurately as it turns out.  The combination of rock, water, grass, trees and privacy made a complete world I called my own

" 狂ったこの世で狂うなら気は確かだ。

Hello, Today a very short post. I accidentally was invited to help my friend with her 1st year art uni  photography assigment, which was base on preaparing a couple Avant Garde Portraits which in my case shows quite simple facial expressions. The make up is quite unusual, something i won't wear for every day basics, hope you like them:)

We are all ordinary. We are all boring. We are all spectacular. 
We are all shy. We are all bold. We are all heroes. 
We are all helpless. It just depends on the day...

Alice in wonderland

“Alice came to a fork in the road. 'Which road do I take?' she asked.
'Where do you want to go?' responded the Cheshire Cat.
'I don't know,' Alice answered.
'Then,' said the Cat, 'it doesn't matter.”
― Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland

I not sure why, but when I saw the 'ready to go' pictures from this photoshoot, I already started to think about Alice in Wonderland story. I didn't plan to shoot this kind of inspired look. Maybe, I get this sort of feeling  because of the oversized plants around me in this lovely garden- park in Manchester. Believe me or not, but the lake was just behind me on the right side;)

Me and Phil shot this look a couple of days ago while I was in Manchester, and I went fora very Chic and girly look, not something you will see me too often. Being away of your comfort zone can be great at times though, Keeping positive by thinking this way…
Recently I got really into flowery and quite feminine looks. I love this skirt and bluse, it looks almost as one-piece dress and the oil painting on them looks so bold and beautiful.

Reality is merely an illusion ...

Happy monday people!

My new post was shoot at Harrogate a lovely town with the best Tea House called Bettys :)
My and my Chinese friend Paul Xandu shoot at the Local Park in Harrogate at early morning, to avoid to many tourists, and the early morning light gives the photos more nostalgic feeling.

I love Vintage butiques . The blouse from today post i one of my newest shopping Trophy (●´艸`)
Vintage clothings makes me feel special and unique. Perhaps it is not something that is not produced in massive quantity like many of the mass market clothing. Secondly, it is a piece with unknown history.
I really like to spend my leisure time shopping at Leeds, plenty of good stores and places to go. Recently i found Pop Up Boutique where I bought this amazing collared blouse from 1970.  I decide to pair is with black trousers and black heels and a big hat to make it a bit more quirky ;)

I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn't say any other way - things I had no words for.

Paris is always a good idea (●♡∀♡)

Browse through Audrey Hepburn quotes  and find the most famous sentence : "Paris is always a good idea"  I've decided to spent a bit of time over this magical place, and create post about my Parisian experience, enjoy (´・` )♡

I have to admit, Paris is one of the most beautiful places in all the world.

The view from the bridge La Seine River

De La Tour Eiffel has become both a global cultural icon of France and one of the most recognizable structures in the world.

The view from the Top, magic<3 
The Eiffel Tower is nine hundred eighty-four feet high. On a clear day, you can see eighty-five miles from the top. It has three elevators. Each elevator can carry sixty-three people. It cost about one million dollars to build Eiffel Tower.

Arc de triomphe, Arc de triomphe de l'Étoile
Arc de triomphe, Arc de triomphe de l'Étoile, is placed in the heart of Paris at Place Charles-de-Gaule. It is a great place for dinning, i get really obsessed with the local spaghetti Bolognese with french baguette and with glass red wine. The shopping is also really good, this is quite obvious, all flagship stores good amazing visual merchandising and window display, I loved Sephora store <3

 Mercedes Benz Store ^.^

And you can not leave Paris without visiting a Laduree store, it is a little piece of heaven ;)

Okay, well, I want to know all the details. I want creative input..

I've been fifty thousand times to the Louvre. I have copied everything in drawing, trying to understand. Here's a little collections of some snaps of Du musee du Louvre <3

(´・` )♡ I would love to live in Paris and speak French. That would make me feel glamorous!
