This look revolves mostly around the bun hair. It’s not a style that I wear out very often so I wanted to see if I could make it look a bit more special.
What I used:
1. leather cuff (used as hair tie) £5 -NO:WEAR camden
2. Clock part necklace -ALL SAINTS (not current season)
3. Studded cross hair clip £18 -Eustratia (www.eustratia.co.uk)
4. Spikey bracelet £18 -River Island (not current season)
5. Bird cage ring £12 -TOPSHOP
6. spike earrings £6.50 –ebay
I think putting the leather cuff around the bun really made a difference and gave it an edge.
I get asked about this one a lot. It’s a little pierced cherub creature (wings on back) was a gift a friend brought back for me from Tokyo. I made it into a long necklace because I think it brings a bit of fun to my outfits. I haven’t seen anything like it in the UK and most people react quite strangely to it.
And finally the full outfit.
I recently found some behind the scenes shots from the chimera shoot and decided to share them as I think they show off some aspects of the garments that weren’t that evident from the final images. The majority of these were taken by Phil Nicholls and a couple by myself.
The garments featured in the shoot are available to purchase at www.eustratia.co.uk. Sale on till 22.1.12 so hurry!
I also took this opportunity to better showcase some of the accessories from the shoot with some still life images as I feel most of them didn’t stand out enough in the final images. These will be added to the online store as soon as I have some more suitable images back
