Virgin Sucides Fashion

So films are always a big inspiration for me on the fashion front and so they should be and I'm looking at the moment at the Virgin Sucides inspired fashion for summer.

It's set in the 1970's midwestern surburbia which has that odd dusky feeling throughout so the style is very much flowery 1970's innocence which is fun to play around with in the summer!

Luella s/s 09 channels a bit of this theme:

Also check out the soundtrack it's good!!!!!

Its me...Bea

Ok so I can't really think of much to say so I'll say this
Love child of Zooey Deschanel and Bob Dylan

Girl named Be/Bee/Bea (spelling is flexible), 17 years old, loves with everything crazy, fun and achingly cool lives just outside London in a poppy field....

Music: johnny flynn, laura marling, yeah yeah yeah's, tilly and the wall, detah cab for cutie, elvis presley, rilo kiley, she and him, cat stevens, nancy sinatra.

Fashion icons: Jane Birkin, Chloe Sevigny, Clemence Posey, Zooey Deschanel, Natalie Portman, Priscilla Presley, Nancy Sinatra, Jenny Lewis.

Fashion: Rodarte, Luella, Chloe, Erin Fetherston, Chanel.

Movies: Charlie Bartlett, Harold and Maude, Life Aquatic, The Squid and the Whale, Littel Miss Sunshine, Thirteen, Grey Gardens.

I am definetly not fashion shy I'll wear what I like! :)

Me I just rectified that top from the back of my wardrobe it says squeeze me on it!

Another thing that most people when i first meet them like to talk about is my curly hair it's true! So my hair is naturally curly and although curly hair has only just come back in with the whole Taylor Swift thing, so loads of people always ask me about how i manage my curly hair so if your interested I'll tell you!

Ok so in the picture above is my hair much more styled than usual in bigger curls than my hair natuarlly is and if you have curly hair (or staright really for that matter) to do this what I do is:

Wash my hair as usual and then instead of spraying with a curling spary and scrunching I put a moisturising creme on it and twirl big curls in sections and blow dry, then I pin each 1cm thick section up and with curling tongs just go over te curls lightly.
So if i can be bothered at some point I'll do a video because poeple hardly ever do them for curly haired people!

Peace Bea x

I'm back - but now it's we....

So it's me (Lulu) and Bea (you say it just like Be or B) or BeGirl on polyvore :).

So We're doing this thing again but to make it more interesting I'm going to do some random magazine fashion shape things on this blog because i currently don't have a camera with me here and Bea is going to do her own style tips, clothes, things etc good stuff will be happening hopefully!

So the next post will be Bea just saying nice things about herself!

I love this issue of Nylon by the way with kat dennings and olivia thrilby the young hollywood addition! Nice stuff!

In my Bag.... :)

So this is like a real life Polyvore set, just a look inside the small life of me :)

My bag is a vintage Louis Vuitton, and in it is: ipod, soft ballet shoes, box with hair pins in (dancer, always prepared) mont blanc pen, great lash mascara, touche eclat and chanel rouge noir nail polish.

I've been using this bag alot recently for just going around because it's an across the body one so it's always on me and it's less heavy and junk filled than my Balenciaga bag!

Paris, the city of love...

So today i thought I would put up some of my awful snaps i have of the city that i took on my little tourist trip with Saskia on Sunday, they are not that great but oh well, plus thought a bit about Parisian chic.

(the eiffel tower itself :) )

(This is my street, i am living at, i edited it a bit to make it a bit more interesting becasue i've only got a boring digital camera with me here :( )

(going down the eiffel tower)

(view from the top of eiffel tower)

(inside the Louvre, yes that is my finger in the way, but I loved this part it was so light and airy much nicer than the mona lisa)

So it was pretty fun, a nice rest from dancing plus Paris is a great place for scoping other people's outfits, even though all i seem to live in these days are leotards and leggings :( because everyone in Paris is so chic, I like to think I drew inspiration for my outfit on Sunday from Lanvin to fit in with the Parisian chic, but I don't really know whether I pulled it off.

My new ballet bag :)

Yes how cute is my new training bag? Very I think most will agree, i love Fifi Lapin and my friend back home bought it as a birthday present for me, it's a bit early but i couldn't wait, so i had to use it!

Svetlana Zakharova

I love Svetlana she is amazing, people talk about her being incredibly flexible but she's also quite interestingly tall apparently 5'7? I'm no short ballerina being 5'6 myself but I never imagined her being that tall. But she has such a dazzling technique and this lovely melodious line, an incredible ballerina.
