After recently starting a new project in my personal sketchbook entitled 'The Sixties', which some of you may know is an era I love all too well. I thought I would share with your a few pages from the new project, as my book seems to have taken a whole different direction since last featuring it here.
When starting new projects I always like to look at various types of research to gain a wider understanding of the theme, as well as use it as a source of inspiration for my designs. For this particular theme I looked at things such as films - 'Marnie' (Alfred Hitchcock) in particular had a pre-founding effect on one's wardrobe (and designs), photographers such as the legendary David Bailey and Melvin Sokolsky- who's 'Bubble' photos I am obsessed with.
I also included some instax snaps of that 60's dress, I featured a while back (link here). As there's nothing like looking at genuine pieces of clothing, from the era, to draw inspiration from.
Also if you've featured your sketchbook on your blog, leave the link to it below, as I love looking at them!

here, I thought it would only be right if I shared with you how I'm currently sporting them. As I was having a 'lazy sunday' consisting of eating (the norm.) and planning upcoming blog posts. 'Sunday attire' consisted of the stripe jumper and pink skirt combination, which I've been currently coveting as of late. That and branching out my hair styling skills courtesy of watching a couple of youtube tutorials. Hello.. 'Halo Braids', aka new favourite (easy-to-do) hair style, whilst re-discovering a pair of (new-found favourite) earrings. Sometimes that what Sundays are perfect for- catching up on the past week and/or experimenting with something new. Speaking on the theme of 'experimenting' I've currently ordered myself some pink hair dye, as I'm forever dreaming of 'my little pony'/ pastel coloured hair - unicorn obsessed maybe!? As ever since I first experimented with purple/ lilac dip-dye, a while back, I thought it was about time that I turned the blonde pink!
