Feeling like an Audrey Grace Girl!
I have been a long-term fan of Wayward Daughter – both of Cait’s blog, and her gorgeous creations too. So when I was contacted by the ever-wonderful Jaclyn of Audrey Grace Boutique to see if I’d like to wear any of her incredible garments – I knew exactly what to pick! Along with the marvellous collared Edith dress, Jaclyn also sent along the Audrey Grace lookbook; what a treat! I’ve spent countless summer hours gazing at the beautiful illustrations, and literally wishing I could own every single piece! I especially adore all of the pieces custom-made for Jaclyn’s boutique; what beauties!
When the dress arrived on my doorstep, Barnaby and I knew exactly where we wanted to photograph it! We wandered into a cluster of overgrown grass, alongside one of the curviest points of the river. While snapping away, I was continuously humming ‘Magdalena’ by Brandon Flowers. It is one of my favourite songs ever, and even a quick glance at Edith’s tag had the line ‘prodigal sons and wayward daughters‘ on repeat in my head! I also brought along our vintage Halina, which I typically refer to as the ‘look down’ camera – if you can’t tell, Barney is the camera pro – I’m not so much! Here’s hoping for a successful round of film photographs – perhaps now I’ll finally learn to wind properly!
