Style Inspiration: Good Girls Revolt



Good Girls Revolt is an American period drama on Amazon Prime. Set in 1969, and inspired by real events, the show follows Patti Robinson and her fellow female researchers as they decide to ask for equal treatment at the magazine that they work for. Their quest initiates an upheaval that impacts romantic relationships, careers and friendships, and propels Patti and her friends into unfamiliar territory that they never dreamed of. 

Mini and Me

This picture of me and my beloved Mini City was taken by the lovely Billie Jay, who got in touch with me on instagram to ask if I would be a part of her latest project, exploring women in the 60s/70s mod and scooter scene. For the shoot I wore my Topshop suede jacket and handmade crimplene shift dress.

Billie shot on a combination of film, iPhone and polaroid and will be exhibiting her work later on this year. She's always looking for new ladies to photograph so if you want to take part then drop her a line! You can find out more at www.billiejayphotography.co.uk
