So I did some styling work

When my friend Levi Macdonald asked if I wanted to do some styling work for her for an editorial in The Pulse I was reluctant at first. Reluctant and clearly mad. I fretted about insurance and how much time I would have and all sorts of little stress monsters. And then she gave me the brief. Marie Antoinette meets Marie Queen of Scots. Diary at the ready, suitcase in hand and we were set to go.
I got to work with some of the most beautiful clothes, shoes and jewellery this side of Scotland (seriously I was spoiled for choice) while working with people I think are all sorts of fantastic. The day was all kinds of cold but we stormed through it. Levi got some beautiful shots, Taz generally looked crazy gorgeous and Kaeleigh was on hand mixing lipstick shades and generally making sure Tara looked super sweet. Within the brief I was given a lot of creative freedom. I wanted it to be decadent, nothing would be too fussy. I liked the idea of mixing lace,silk,tweed and leather and creating softer looks with lots of detailing. While I love the romantic tulle skirt with the bebaroque body, I had a total soft spot for the all pink outfit. Lots of pearls, crystals and leather. It was easily the outfit I had the most fun with.
I had a wonderful day and was an overwhelmingly positive experience. I’d like to say a wee personal thank you to all the designers: Lilly Wiggler Couture, Obscure Couture, Bonnie Bling, Judy R Clark, Bebaroque, Euan McWhirter, Sarah from La La Land, Steven Moffat from Shhhoooh, Fi from Elanor’s Riot & Godiva Boutique as well as my friend Lorainne for the emergency costume pearls, Lynne from Tatty Bon for the gloves and hand steamer and anyone else who helped make this shoot happen. A special thank you to the gorgeous Taz, the tremendous K-wo and as ever the ever talented Levi Macdonald
