Street Style – Take One

And now for something a bit different (for me).

Since having a fashion blog I’ve been noticing what other women wear more and more. As a frustrated photography graduate I thought it was time to jump on the street style bandwagon and see if I could successfully combine my two great loves. So on a hot October day in Exeter, camera in hand, I took the plunge and just did it. I didn’t want to restrict myself to older women simply due to the theme of my blog, so I looked for stylish women regardless of age. I’ve always thought your age matters not a bit if you look fabulous – a beautiful dress and great shoes will make you feel more amazing than the date on your birth certificate ever will.


Claire, 37

Megan, 19

Gillian, 45

James & Liberty, both 17 (These two were just the most adorable couple ever)

Linda (age not given)

Lynn, 52

Mel, 24
(I left Mel’s photo till last simply because I am so glad I eventually managed to persuade her to have her photo taken… The one that nearly got away? Thank goodness she didn’t!)

I’d like to thank the lovely ladies who said yes – you look fabulous and I’m really grateful to you all. Thanks also to my trusty assistant/niece Charlotte who did a brilliant job of taking down everyone’s details and helping me talent spot… you’re a little star. (If you’re one of my ladies please don’t be too self-critical as I know us women can be – I’m no exception – remember I wouldn’t have asked you if I didn’t think you were super stylish! You can leave a comment at the bottom or if you’d rather, email me by going to my About Me page.)

    These are fantastic photos! It takes guts to ask people on the street if you can take their picture 🙂 I love that you managed to capture a variety of ages and body shapes!
