dulcie's feathers X revolva


I've been itching to show you these pictures for a while now! My friend Louise runs the online vintage fashion store Revolva and asked to borrow some of my headpieces for this magical festival inspired woodland shoot a few months ago. I love way they've turned out! The styling is gorgeous and the make-up & the way they've woven the model's hair pieces into my headdresses gives the pictures a boho edge.


You can read Louise's blog post about the pictures or have a gander at their ASOS Marketplace boutique for a massive selection of gorgeous handpicked vintage & retro clothing clothing for men and women. You can also see some more of my headdresses on my facebook page

What do you think of the pictures? I'd love to do a shoot like this myself at some point but too many festivals at the moment... I'll be updating you on those just as soon as I get my disposable cameras developed! How are your summers going?

Vintage shopping in East London.

Sorry for the lateness of this post! Blogger hasn't been my friend lately and wouldn't let me upload any pictures, however now that it's all working so I've got loads to share from my recent trip to London :)

If you are a regular reader you will know that I love a good vintage shop! From Bristol to Birmingham, fairs to pop-up shops, I love a good rummage and I'm always interested in a bit of up-cycling. On my trip to London last week my gorgeous friend Claire (the cutie in the hat in the pictures below) took me for a whizz around Brick Lane to see all the gorgeous, quirky shops.

LOVE SAVES THE DAY!

A bit of a belated post on my lovely if hectic weekened at Love Saves the Day Festival a fortnight ago! Despite the slightly drizzly weather on Saturday I had a glorious weekend catching up with old friends and getting to know new ones. We boogied to some amazing music and somehow managed to drag ourselves out to after parties on both nights. It was also really lovely to see  so many gorgeous faces in my feather creations!

To top the weekend off the gorgeous Larissa who is pictured above was snapped by Grazia wearing one of my headdresses in their round-up of the events which I was very chuffed about as you can imagine!

On Friday I took a few snaps of my recent creations up on Brandon Hill to try out my new lens and test the functionality of my headdresses in the rain (they were fine!). The rest of the weekend was spent in a rainy haze at Love Saves the Day festival having a boogie and drinking cider.  Some more pics of that soon when I have recovered! How have you spent bank holiday weekend?

eat : The Christmas Steps

The Christmas Steps, pub, Bristol
The Christmas Steps, pub, Bristol
Yesterday me and my friend Lewie went for a cheeky little lunch date and thought we'd check out newly opened pub; The Christmas Steps. It's situated, believe it or not, at the bottom of one of Bristol's most picturesque streets, The Christmas Steps, and in its previous incarnation was called 'The Three Sugar Loaves'. It's now been taken over by Bristol institution, Crack Magazine, and given a cool make-over inside and out. The pub has been around since the 1600s and retains a lot of gorgeous original features but with an additional minimal edge. Exposed stonework is juxtaposed with a poster for Simple Things festival and the stairwell to the toilets is papered with old Crack mag covers which reminds you that there is a big focus on music in this venue; DJs play every weekend and there is a weekly music quiz.

What sets it apart from other Bristol venues though is that it is definitely a proper pub; there is certainly an emphasis on good food as well as music. I drank Symonds cider and ate macaroni cheese for lunch which was deeeelish. The  best kind of comfort food made even better by being topped with a generous slice of goat's cheese (my kryptonite) and scrumptious onion marmalade. They had a really good selection of vegetarian options which is obviously important to me and at £6.50 it didn't break my student bank either.  I would definitely like to come back and sample their dinner menu!

You can visit The Christmas Steps facebook page to see their menu and events.
