About Me


(Photo - Laura Alice Hart)

I’m an author, freelance journalist, poet, and model. Having won the Vogue Talent Contest at the age of sixteen, I’ve gone on to write for places including British Vogue, The Guardian, Broadly, Refinery29, BBC Radio 4, The Debrief, SUITCASE, Buzzfeed and Metro with articles covering areas from clothes to culture to health to travel. I am also currently junior editor for Violet magazine.

My debut non-fiction book Notes On Being Teenage came out with Hachette (Wayland) in 2016. Part memoir, part manual for adolescence, it takes an honest look at areas including body image, friendship, family, and online life. As an author I’ve talked at literary festivals, schools, sixth forms, and bookshops.

I’ve also performed my poetry in locations ranging from Shakespeare and Company to Burberry stores to The Society Club, and my first poetry collection 'Branch and Vein' is available through the New River Press.

I began modeling at the age of thirteen, started my style blog at fourteen, and had surgery to rectify a spinal curvature when I was fifteen. These days I’m still a model (now with the Talent division at Models 1), still blog (which is good as you’re here, looking at it), and still have two metal rods in my back (and yes, I do set off metal detectors in airports).

Over the years this blog – specializing in a mix of inventive imagery and intelligent commentary on everything from fast fashion to feminism – has seen me featured/ quoted in publications including Sunday Times Style, Miss Vogue, The Observer, Grazia, Vogue Nippon, the Evening Standard, and i-D.

Beyond all that, I read constantly, adore long conversations, drink a lot of coffee, hate to go out without at least two books in my bag, am happiest climbing hills or stomping around cities on foot, spend a lot of time lingering in charity shops, advocate dressing up at every opportunity, and am sometimes to be found jumping in freezing lakes and rivers. Oh and I'm rather tall, too.

Hello!

Nice blog. I like the surrounding of your pictures. Nature is the perfect frame for such poetic and beautiful clothes. I'm also impressed by the lack of attitude that's like a virus in fashion blogs. You seem at ease and laid back, in your articles and pictures.
Keep going and never change the way you are.

Your blog is very unique, and I like how you have combined literature with clothing (since I have one blog on literature and another on sewing).

I must add, I cannot leave the house without a notepad and paper, I started a notepad collection just for it.
