35mm

The beginning of my photography series on my blog, what better way to start than with my first roll of film. I tested out my new point and shoot camera a couple of weeks back as I explored around Northern Quarter in Manchester & Didsbury. If you want to see more of my photography, feel free to check out my portfolio along with my films...

Neat Pleats

New Look Jumpsuit // Adidas Superstars // Thrifted Denim Jacket

Pleats have become noticeable trend this summer, fine pleats, thick pleats, tops, trousers you name it you probably can get it pleated. I own a few pleated clothing myself, something I really like about them, they're extremely versatile and can be worn in a range of ways; this jumpsuit is completely able to be worn more formally with strappy heels and some jewellery. This black, simple pleated jumpsuit I've styled for an everyday casual look - PETITE STYLING TIP: If you buy a jumpsuit and it's still a little long at the leg, for a casual oversized look tuck the front into your trainers and a slightly bigger jacket, unless otherwise wear footwear with a little platform.

Monochrome Victorian

Topshop Lace Top // Topshop Black Shorts // Topshop Boots @ Victoria's Vault

Sun has been very kind to Preston letting me expose some skin. Shorts were an option, which is actually rare for the UK. This outfit brings out some elegance with this statement lace blouse that has been beautifully crafted with detail from the neckline, cuffs and lace pattern of the top. The top is a little cropped so high waisted shorts were my option of styling, with the whipstitch details along the side making this emsemble a very high fashion outfit for the summer days.
I would like to give the owner from Victoria's Vault in Preston a shoutout for actually recommending me the top for the shorts.

Mint & Cream

Starting off the relaunch with a summery look, incorporating bright colours and styles. Something I come to love is culottes and adding a white into my ever growing collection, it is a perfect item for summer. STYLING TIP: if you ever get a pair and struggling how to style culottes, try and make it balanced for example a longer bagger pair of culottes could be teamed with a tight small top. Especially for petite girls you don't want to be drowned out with too many oversize clothing. This season on the trend forecast the colour mint came up a lot and this pleated top screams SS16, the two compliment each other extremely well in colour and style and with a pair of ghillie sandals, it makes way for a good summer look.

Back With Vengance

You thought you heard the last of me, but I'm back and here to stay. Been away from the blogging world to kind of finish reality and teenager years by focusing long and hard with college and my future, even doubting myself with blogging but I am ready to come back and I am thinking huge.

Notice anything different? Yeah a new name to really get myself out there and what actually says about myself, (more than my actual name) 'PETITEFROCHIC'. If you split up the name, you'll notice three words, petite-fro-chic which has obvious reasons why it relates could relate to me; petite as if you've viewed me before I am only 5ft 1 but growing ever so slightly so I'm doing it for the small girls, fro as if "afro"for hairstyle and chic to basically round off my style.

Coming towards the end of my course of media has made me realise I love being practical with cameras so I have plans you should all be excited about. Trying to mix up the game of blogging I will publishing personal work in form of photography and video. Sure bloggers do it already but I want to be artistic, if it's small lookbooks for each outfit posts, 'day in the life', or something I've come to love watching and doing recently montages that could have meaning or not. There will be FEWER lifestlye posts, but more of a visionary perspective, that is what I plan to do with my blog.

I cannot promise consistently, I will forever lack that but my excuse is that I gotta live young whilst I can with under a month until I am 18 and preparing for independent years to come with university ahead (which I will update, I will be taking International Fashion Promotion and Manchester Metropolitan in September). So I'll never leave the fashion side, I'll be more indulged into it. 

Now, onto world domination and let the era of PETITE FRO CHIC begin..
