This casual photoshoot series and outfits were inspired by the Louisa Clark from Me Before You, mostly from the book. Clothes are my own, except for the red dress I’ve sewn and bumblebee tights I’ve bought after I read the book.
” I pulled the vacuum cleaner from the hall cupboard and ran it up and down the corridor and into the two bedrooms, thinking all the while that if my parents could see me they would have insisted on taking a commemorative photograph”
“Spring arrived overnight as if winter, like some unwanted guest, had abruptly shrugged its way into its coat and vanished, without saying goodbye. Everything became greener, the roads bathed in watery sunshine, the air suddenly balmy”
“I cut his hair in the living room. I lit the fire, we put on a film – an American thriller – and I placed a towel around his shoulders”
“the snow came so suddenly that I left home under a blue sky and not half an hour later I was headed past a castle that looked like a cake decoration, surrounded by a layer of thick white icing”
“I dusted some shelves that didn’t really need dusting, and contemplated cleaning some windows. “
“this book – which was actually suprisingly readable was all about a kind of battle for survival. It claimed that women didn’t pick men because they loved them at all. It said that the female of the species would always for for the strongest male, in order to give her offspring the best chance. She couldn’t help herself. It was just the way nature was.”
“but in my experience there’s not much that can’t be fixed by a decent cup of tea…”
” a vintage dress in dark red satin. it was made for a more frugal generation and i always had to say a secret prayer that the zip would make it up past my waist, but it gave me the outline of a 1950s scarlet, and it was a “result” dress, one of the outfts you couldn’t help but feel good in.”
Bonus; Amazing drawing by Ersen, with side by side comparison and stages. His artworks are seriously amazing, I’ve been following and admiring his works for almost ten years now and it feels truly amazing to have an artwork made for me!
