Camden has been my favorite haunt in London (in fact, in the whole UK) for quite some time now, so when I decided to collaborate with Pia Meads Photography for some Outfit Of The Day posts, I was over the moon that she suggested we shoot in this awesome, eclectic location. I feel like it fits the vibe I’m trying to portray perfectly; merging style with music and highlighting fashion with an edge. I love gigs, and dressing up for them, so I’ll be running a mini-series from the shoot with that kind of theme in mind. It’s basically the only time I feel like I have dressing appropriately down!
Uprawr is back – yessss! Although my favorite rock night is no longer located in the Purple Turtle (RIP), it’s returned with a vengeance to its original home, Dingwalls, in the heart of Camden Lock. This is where I got my first taste of the madness back in January 2012, and it’s even better than I remembered it.
I’ve been somewhat ‘alternative’ I suppose you could say since I was about thirteen, which now I guess is practically half my life. It makes me cringe a little to say that, to bang on about ‘alt’ stuff, but to be honest – it’s true. Whilst I’m much too old to concern myself with how ‘mainstream’ the things I enjoy are, I would say I tend to have a bias towards fashion, music, people and style that’s a bit quirky, edgy or different. Or at least by the standards that exist in a lot of the world! I was invited by JawbreakerLDN to LondonEdge, the alternative fashion showcase, and it really made me feel proud of the lifestyle I tend to surround myself with, meeting such awesome and creative individuals.
