I little mid week inspo courtesy of the new Vanessa Mooney collection. I’m just obsessed with her new look book shot by Jason Lee Parry staring Anna Speckhart who lives in this bohemia rhapsody lounging around her pool painting all day while drinking red wine.
“This collection is about expression – unadulterated and uninhibited. Dancing to Purple Rain in the desert, standing in the sun with a protest sign. In a time of a thousand causes to fight for, it’s easy to forget how powerful a single statement can be.”
The collection is filled with door knockers and chain links and is inspired by Mooney’s memories of the eighties.
“I remember in the eighties watching Sid Vicious. He wore bike chains and chain mail, he bled on stage. In everything he did, he was making a statement. Madonna was doing the same. She wore cone bras and bows and fishnets and bondage. She made sexuality synonymous with powerful women. She had me dancing in underage clubs, with big hair and big jewelry, rolling my hips, mouthing “touched for the very first time”
Oh to live with a free spirit of an artist or a child with zero inhibitions.
It’s a bohemian week on My Life in Pink this week it seems. Loving Natasha Poly’s look for Vogue Paris so I’ve put together my own look inspired by her.
I love everything about this story. I mean how’s Pilcher’s styling? Printed maxi dresses, suede for days, shearling coats and oversized statement neckpieces. Can I just have it all please?!

Summer has finally started to show it’s face and as the weather gets warmer so does my love for seventies boho.
I recently acquired these pattern wide leg trousers from H&M, they kind of remind me of pyjama’s but to be perfectly honest I have no problem with wearing anything that not only looks like my pj’s but feels like it too. Comfort first, right?
p.s don’t forget to layer up on the jewellery when going for the boho look. Oh and fringe anything.
