Total girl band 😉

 

The Performing Arts Ball was a wonderful night. It was a chance to dress up, listen to some of our friends play in their bands, and dance for hours. The dress I am wearing was in the sale from Boohoo. My friend bought it for £8 and unfortunately didn’t fit her. I couldn’t let such a beautiful dress be boxed away so of course I snapped it up…thanks b!

I love low V-necks as they are so elegant and classy. The bold red is not something I would usually go for but the colour worked well with my skin tone and although I stood out amongst the safe dark colours which I would have gone for, it felt great to wear something a bit different. It has encouraged me to explore more colour in my wardrobe – another goal for 2017!

Charity shops are also great places to find dresses. The blue dress worn by Rachael on the right side of me on the photo was from a charity shop. This just shows that you do not have to spend a lot of money on a dress for it to look fabulous. Caitlin, on the other side of me was wearing a dress from Topshop which was a sale buy – again proving what feels like an endless search for that little gem is worth it!

I absolutely loved this venue! I was so excited to go as I had wanted to go for ages. It was the Buyers Club which is on Hardman Street in Liverpool. The exposed brick and fake shutters made for a casual feel, but the decorations purposefully for the ball re-created it into a formal space perfect for a ball. This proves a formal event does not need to be in a super fancy venue for it to have elegance and glamour.

The blurry shots were not intentional but I really like them because they give a sense of rapidity to the evening with the quick movements and therefore adds an element of obscurity and imagination…..

As you may have seen in my review of Laynes Espresso, an independent coffee shop in Leeds, I included some photos which were taken by a kind gentleman who was a cameraman. I was close by and overheard them mentioning camera angles and shooting something – this caught my attention. I was writing a review of Laynes and wanted some photos of my outfit. For about 20 minutes I was debating whether to ask them to take a photo of me. I got up the courage and asked and they kindly accepted, taking photos at different angles and giving me a range of shots to choose from. As this website is in its early stages I am still figuring out how to be creative and take the best shots I can. The passion I have for photography and journalism was in part what gave me the courage to ask that favour. Sometimes all it takes is a moment to push those nerves aside and remember what you are passionate about and eventually your self-confidence will build.

‘Life is not easy for any of us. But what of that? We must have perseverance and above all confidence in ourselves. We must believe that we are gifted for something and that this thing must be obtained.’
