There’s something mysterious that draws me to vintage frames, worn leather suitcases and wooden stools, and makes them the perfect props to use. So you would imagine how delighted I was when one day, I stumbled across this empty wooden ornate frame. I couldn’t help but feel intrigued by this discarded piece – especially its history. Was it a painting, a photograph or other that was framed by it? I can’t seem to let things go to waste. But hey, I like to see it as being eco-friendly by saving the environment from that one extra piece of trash. In any case, I’d like to think that I’ve now given a new life to this frame as a prop for studio photography. It’s super fun to use in photobooth-style photos but here, I used it to compose and emphasise the details of what I’m wearing, to create a quirky little outfit post.
I’ve been on the search for the perfect circular hemmed flippy red skirt for a long while now, and I finally found the perfect one at Topshop! The structured material really ensures a long-lasting flare in the hem which adds plenty of volume to your look. Paired with my staple striped top and new favourite casual Gorman mary-janes with a floral crown to top it all off, I’m definitely ready for soaking up the warmer weather!
Don’t forget to enter my Etsy giveaway which closes this Friday, and as always, have a lovely weekend!
