Self-Portrait in a Velvet Dress






After a week of delightful weather today it has rained all day! Never mind  I dressed up in delicious turquoises' and snapped some pictures of myself as Frida (note my eyebrows). My brother gave me Self-Portrait in a Velvet Dress: Frida's Wardrobe for christmas so I used photographs from it as inspiration and took my own self-portrait in a velvet dress; all be it one from a charity shop!
This picture is a particularly beautiful I think, Frida's hair is wonderful! All the clothes I am wearing are from charity shops. The necklace was purchased from an amazing lady at Portobello market last summer.  She told me she got it in Pakistan and its actually for a horse (!)

Anyway I recently handed in my thesis, jolly exciting! Tomorrow I am visiting Eltham Palace for the first time with a few friends from university as a celebration of our great endeavour. I hope you are all having a lovely week and making the most of this rainy weather (its great for doing all those dull tasks that are avoided on sunny days!)
