"I Love Playing With Fire "

Recently I have been OBSESSED with the 1970's. I have always had an interest in the 70's since I watched a documentary called 'No Fun'  that was part of a documentary series called "Dancing in the street" and explored the different eras of rock music from the 50's to the 90's. It was really interesting to me to see this whole different world of music and fashion and Ideals all at the same time. from then on my interest in the 70's era only snowballed until it hit its peak about a month ago.

The inner Cherri Curry/ Joan Jett/ Suzi Quatro within me was alive when I styled and shot a shoot with two of my friends centered around the 1970's and the feeling of  empowerment and determination surrounding the 1970's women's liberation movement. This shoot gives off a vibe of Girl Gangs and rebellion portrayed by two young teenage girls.

I have this thing about looking at photos whilst listening to music that inspired the looks and the whole shoot itself and as I have done it in the past I'm not going to stop now. I think I'm going to make it a tradition with this blog.

So take a listen to this amazing song by the Runaways - I love playing with fire.

Below is the mood board I created for  this Shoot. Tell me If you feel the spirit of the 70's

Christiane Wears: Vintage sleeveless collated top, Black skater skirt, Vintage Western red Belt, White knee high socks and Rubi shoes gunmetal and black glitter platform shoes.

Hope you enjoyed viewing these photos, I had a great time shooting them. Also HUGE thanks to my beautiful friends Jess and Christiane who were perfect models.

  1. The mood board is so pretty! I love all the glitter *o*

    The filtering on your photos does make it look like from the 70s. It's that whimsy quality.

    Have you ever checked out the Teddy Girls? They were a legit 1950s girl gang in London! It's pretty snazzy and this post reminded me of that.

  2. Thank you so much I love the glitter too!
    Thanks for telling me about the teddy girls they look amazing!
    I totally dig bad ass women/girls.
