Me and my dad had a far from easy relationship, for one he thought I was wasting my time with fashion and failed to understand why I would choose it as career, something that especially since I moved to London for university two years ago meant we didn't talk a lot and caused me to develop a lot of resentment towards him. He was a very complex human being and far from the perfect father figure or family man which has made loosing him the more complex, the many unresolved issues I hold against him irrevocably linked with the loss of the dad that I spent few yet unforgettable childhood days with and who engrained my love for electronic music and Quentin Tarantino films in me. Despite our issues I have always sought his approval, whether achieving straight A's or getting into UCL, something that I will continue to do, a drive to succeed that I have to thank him for.
And that's what it comes down to I think, of course he wasn't perfect and a rose tinted view of him is impossible but its the finality of this loss and the fact that I no longer can prove him wrong about my love for fashion that despite all his faults will make me miss him dearly.

I had the great opportunity to style and model Miss Selfridge's new Project 3 collection which is designed by their assistant buyer team, alongside two other great bloggers, Jazmine and Amy. I hope you enjoy the final pictures, it's always a pleasure to work with my favourite photographer Phill Taylor who has shot me on numerous occasion and makes any shoot fun and relaxed!
Check out the whole collection here

Last Friday the lovely Grace at Bleach, the only person I trust with my hair, gave me not only a trim but a colour rinse that has seen me go through several shades of pink this week. I could never quite make myself commit to permanent colour so doing something like this was really fun and allowed me to use my hair as real accessories for the week and has made me want to try more colours in the future for sure!
