Mon Cahier

For the past couple of months, I have used a sketchbook as a store of my fashion inspiration. The pages reflect my ideal style, and I use the book as a guide to see how far I have traversed in achieving this. Photographs, pieces of magazines and newspapers, sketches, buttons, ribbon, certain words, lace and beads, they all congregate here in these collages.
The book acts as a gentle nudge, reminding me of how I would like to dress, with little regard to any current trends or fads. I have even purchased a few of the items featured......

Hello my name is Evelin, i'm from Argentina, so far away from United Kingdom. I would like to know about your country, because it's my favourite country in Europe, i would like to go when i finish high school, but i think that is so but I think it is so expensive that I will save that for years. I envy you for living there, I hope that we keep in touch. With love, Eve from argentina

I love this = I collect many pulled pages from magazines in a file - but putting them on the page in a combination like that - takes it a good step further and I love how you see later if you incorperated the look for yourself or not - inspiring
