I enjoy straight -up photos and out fit shots. I love a good quality pic, a clever angle and all the rest of it – but I’ve never seen myself as that kind of blogger. I’ve been asked a few times why I don’t have shots of myself on the blog and I don’t really have an answer. It’s not something I’ve thought of. I don’t dress in a quirky way, I’m not a fashion pioneer so it all seems a little alien to me. I don’t own a tripod and my boyfriend would probably laugh at how un-photogenic I am.
I hope that answers your questions 🙂
So I have some new for you:
Gossip Girl siren, and according to Karl Lagerfeld “A kind of American dream girl” Blake Lively has been confirmed as the face for Chanel – modelling the Mademoiselle handbag range from March. And of course Blake simply couldn’t be happier about her new role.
‘A dream come true is an understatement,’ she gushed. ‘I can say that I feel like the happiest, luckiest girl around.’
No sneak peaks of the images yet, but they will be featuring in all the magazines April issues. I.Cant.Wait.
Along the same Chanel lines, Freja Erichsen will be fronting the Spring campaign for the fashion house alongside Abbie Lee Kershaw. I have serious hair envy of Freja.
Oh my oh my – the public strikes back. I’m not one for writing a somber blog post but this caught my eye as I’ve been watching Allie Crandells modelling career for a while now.
The american model (from The City fame) has been banned from fashion retailer Revolve after shoppers complained about her emaciated frame.
Revolve clothing featured Crandell on their online boutique looking painfully thin as she models a collection by BCBG Max Azria.
These images in particular sparked outrage among customers with one commenting, ‘As a normal, healthy woman with a healthy body type. How can I possibly imagine what this dress would look like on me when it is shown on a tiny frame?’
Revolve were quick to reply saying that they would not be using the model again on their site until she was a healthier weight.
This isn’t the first time Allie has had to defend her weight. Back in 2008 on The City, fashion publicist Kelly Cutrone accused her of being far too thin, resulting in Allie defending herself when the viewers agreed.
I guess the fash-pack have had enough now. I would turn your heads to Asos.com (who I have a love/hate relationship with) as they do use fantastic healthy looking models.
I suppose it’s only right to write a blog about my year.
A year of ups and downs – a year of change.
Where to start really?
The beginning of the year saw a lot of change. Discontent at my job led to taking a huge chance that paid off. Heartbreak ended in happiness. Taking a step back ended up being the right choice.
I moved back home into the countryside. Lack of ANY transport led to the purchase of my car. Needless to say the most expensive thing I’ve ever purchased, but I love her (Fifi). It might sound silly but buying something like that was a big deal to me.
Lack of inspiration at one job left to taking on another, working 6 days a week for 6 months and blogging inbetween. Busy days were what I needed. My luck changed and I landed my dream job full-time, followed my a mini promotion. Things were on the up.
Heartache left and was replaced by love once again. People grew up and things worked themselves out. A hard time turned into a great time.
It’s strange how much things can change in a year, through bad times and good. Of course I can’t finish without mentioning the start of my blog. After blogging most days for work I wanted to do more – got the blogging bug as they say. Justicepluskiss was born. I started not knowing when or if it would end. But here we are, still going along.
My blog is a place for things I like. It doesn’t follow a format or have a theme. I blog anything I like, from photographs and editorials to products, people and the countryside. I love that people speak to me and know my blog, they read it and they enjoy it. That alone makes it worth continuing.
I’ve hope you’ve enjoyed this year as much as I have.
I look forward to it.
