I've always been influenced by the 20s and 30s, it's a time I keep returning to. Mary Lou recently posted a photoshoot of her Alice In Wonderland Mad Hatters Tea Party and that inspired me to do my own take. I've also been really inspired by Sarah Moon's 1972 Pirelli Calendar shoot, more on that later.
Let's have some music, I uploaded this song especially, though it's a crime it wasn't on youtube already
1930s Parasol - one of my best finds ever - 50p at a car boot
Dress - is a vintage cotton nightie from ebay
Necklaces - black - used to be Mum's, Coral - 1930s from a shop I used to work in
Belt - Primark
1930s bangles - Charity shop and Second To None
For the porcelain and vintage linen fans...
The green and gold cup was 50p at the Salvation Army Christmas fayre - when I got it home I discovered it was from the 1790s.
The lilac and gold is Japanese 1950s/60s
The Sevres style one is Aynsley from 1910s and the Teapot is 1930s Grindley
Sarah Moon's wonderful romantic and feminine shots were a step away from the usual as far as Pirelli calendars went. I love their 1920s bordello look and the clever painterly use of light.
