Leva Laguna for Elle

Venus Rising is the name of this shoot. It really caught my eye. There is a real sense of
calm and elegance about it. The model, Leva Laguna is beautiful and utterly perfect for it.

Glasgow International Festival Of Visual Art // The Duchy // Pio Abad // Dazzler

Today is the first chance I have had to go to some of the exhibitions that are on for GI.
The first thing I went to was at The Duchy gallery which is on Duke Street. I was very
impressed by it. The whole gallery was decorated with the most incredibly thick, textured wallpaper.
The colours were so vivid and inviting and the whole concept was executed excellently. If you live
in Glasgow you MUST go, not just to this though, just to anything that is on. We are so lucky to have
all these amazing exhibitions on in our city for free, it seems such a waste not to go.

Here is the official blurb about the show -

Po Abad's exhibition at The Duchy investigates the historical permutations of the word Dazzler:
first, as the Dazzle camouflage pattern developed in the Royl Academy Schools to disguise naval
vessels at sea during the First World War. Then, as The Disco Dazzler, a 1980's comic book
super-heroine modelled after the Hollywood Starlet Bo Derek, who disposes of her enemies by
transforming sonic vibrations into blinding flashes of light - a disorientating function similar
to that of the Glare Mout Dazzler, a non-lethal visual disruption laser used by the U.S. Army in
Iraq and Afghanistan to serve as an 'irrefutable, multi-lingual, cross-cultural warning that they
mean business.'

Weaving all these references into an immersive installation, Abad explores the seductive strands of
aggression, deception and, ultimately, effeteness that connect these seemingly disparate histories.

I have for the first time in my life, been listening to Roxy Music this week.
I am hooked.

Black and Navy

I love Black and Navy together. People often say it doesn't work but it does.
Alexa Chung knows exactly how to wear them perfectly.

Summer Shoes

I would like all of these for the summer time. I am surprised I like the green ones, but I do.
I could imagine them with a really simple navy dress or something denim. My favourite ones however,
are the Peter Jensen sandals. They look so comfy and I know I would wear them all the time.

Clock Tower Saleroom

While driving home from the most perfect few days in the west coast of Scotland
this little haven of vintage goods was found. It is called Clock Tower Saleroom.
It is in Adrishaig, which is in between Tarbert and Lochgiplhead. We couldn't
believe our eyes when we caught glimpse of a white brick wall with vintage
clothes floating on it. It is one of those places that is completely rammed with
a random selection of amazing stuff. Everything was so cheap, which is very refreshing
as so many antique and vintage shops based in cities can take advantage of people and
drastically overprice. I bought these incredible old knitting patterns from the 80s
which I plan to frame. I also bought two teapots and some amazing drinking glasses.
If you are ever near the west coast I highly recommend visiting this place, we were
told to call first as the opening hours change.
