Photobucket(Boots Primark)

All I have to say is... I suggest you pull out your twenty English pounds and get down to Primark right now because they have an absolute beaut of a shoe range this A/W and they are all under £20. (Amazing!) ... and remember, just because it's cold outside, doesn't mean your feet can't look pretty!

(Piece by June Jitter)
So I opened up my emails today to find this amazing piece by the very talented June Jitter, I loved it so much that I thought I'd write a post as a thank you. It's pretty amazing when someone takes the time to make something for you and I like that. So hope you like and Thank you June! This will feature as the footer on my new blog layout when it's finished xo.

Mother of The Groom

I was having lunch with my family at The Parker in Palm Springs, when I saw this wonderful woman pass by. I hopped up from my seat and quickly snapped a shot of her on her way to her son's Wedding reception.

Dress up

(top Topshop, ears disney land circa 1999, pleated diy skirt (which you cant really see) vintage belt from Mexico)
When i was little, dressing up was my most favourite thing in the world EVER. I'd dress up in my mum's old dresses and catsuits (she was a 70's disco dancing champion, not a gladiator) and I'd dress my brother up as a little girl in a blonde wig and pink dress....I'm 24 and i just don't seem to be growing out of it??? Thank you all so much for the feedback on my jewellery, I'll be posting some more designs on here soon! xo Penny

(crystal slave bracelet designed by me for ASTRAEA jewellery £25)
OK people, so as you all know, I've been designing jewellery for a while now and I've decided to open up shop and share my designs with you all HERE. At the moment, it's just a facebook page and i'm only shipping to the UK, but I'm hoping that my webpage will go live in the next few weeks and then you can all get your mits on my little projects :) I hope you like what's up so far, and like the logo! The name is Astraea ( I know it's complicated and hard to say, but I like it!) it's pronounced "As-tray-ya" and it means star in Greek (it's from my own obsession with Greek mythology, but I wont bore you with all that!) .... Any way, let me know what you think about it and the designs, I've got lots more products to go up so stay tuned, and thanks for your lovely support. Lots of Love, penny xo

Thank you for all of your comments and support on my last post. I hope to empower people to feel good about themselves and live life to the fullest, so any feedback on my work is much appreciated. I met this beautiful woman while consignment shopping with my family in Palm Desert. She was shy about posing, but lit up the camera with her beautiful smile, as soon as she stepped into the frame.

The Glamorous Advanced Style Ladies/Women

Friday, November 25, 2011

Today I read a review of Advanced Style on the Pilgrim's Moon blog. In her review, The blog's author Tess Giles Marshall, disapproves of my use of the word "ladies". A little constructive criticism never hurt anyone, so I wanted to bring the debate forward. What's the best way to refer to the women that I feature? I try and listen to how the people I photograph refer to themselves.I was once criticized for using the term "Ari's Girls" even though I was quoting someone that I had just photographed. I want to be respectful as possible, but can't please everyone. Where do you "guys" stand?

( Shorts originally from Topshop: DIY)

OK, so I do alot of customising and tweeking of my own clothes and normally completely forget to document it in any kind of "blog-able" way, which means that you guys don't get to see it (sorry about that) however, today I remembered! Dont ask me where it came from, I literally had a massive urge to completely cover a pair of denim shorts in gems, so i went to hobby craft, bought the most massive bag of gems I could find (turns out I probably have enough gems to cover about 20 pairs of shorts, but I'm sure that could probably happen) and began to individually glue them all onto the shorts...turns out that there is a very specific fabric gemstone glue which works a treat! I didn't realise glues could have such specific purposes, but turns out they do. every day's a school day. I'll probably rock these bad boys around town this weekend and will post a photo for you all to see. Laters xo

Fall For Orange


I am spending this Thanksgiving cooking with a few friends in New York. I just got back from shopping at Whole Foods and was inspired by all of the Autumnal colors. Orange is everywhere from yams, to pumpkin pie, and it can be seen in some of Advanced Style's best Fall Looks. Check out how the style experts above incorporate orange into looks appropriate for every season.

I haven't seen Hilda Longinotti since she turned 80 years old, and she looks as fantastic as ever.Hilda is a legend in the world of interior design, serving as the architectural and design liaison for Herman Miller.Her style is definitely influenced by her love of design, as seen in her bold, architectural accessories. Hilda offered this advice to anyone trying to discover their own personal style,"Set yourself apart from the crowd, young people need to find their zone. Style is an evolution, a process."
