Top 5 fashion blogging tips, lookbook and paris photographs

Top  #5  Fashion Blogging Tips

Looking for ways to take your blog to the next level? Then check out my top 5 blogging tips bellow, by Rosa Fairfield.
"Cities have sexes: London is a man, Paris a woman, and New York a well-adjusted transsexual.”  Angela Carter
















#1 Don't spend a fortune

When I first started blogging, I read so many articles about how expensive blogging is. It doesn't have to be if you are resourceful. People are always saying how you need to spend money on hosting, I use Blogger. It's free and gives me much more freedom than Wordpress where they make you pay for every little add-on. Learn coding so you can design your own site. Email PR's about clothing loans or collaborations, instead of buying lots of things (that's not being 'dis-honest', it's having business sense).

#2 Go to different places, experience things

One of my favourite things about blogging is that it gets me out-and-about, doing fun activities. Look for new and creative ideas for shoots, not just posing in a different outfit next to the same city backdrop. I also love blogs that try and tell a story or make art through their photography, when it's not just all about the outfit.

#3 Celebrate other bloggers and don't be scared to talk about money or followers

It's so easy to compare yourself to others, instead, celebrate their success. In this industry, you need to make connections with people so comment on other bloggers' work in a genuine way. Also, don't be afraid to talk about numbers, be proud of the followers you have and unembarrassed that you would like to grow your following.

I hate this whole, 'bloggers earning money from there blog is bad' way of thinking. It must be the only industry where being a professional is seen as a bad thing. It should be celebrated if a person is good enough at what they do to earn money from it.

#4 If you want to make money, make sure your blog is commercial

Having the figures is one thing, but your blog must also be commercial if you want to make money from it. By that, I mean it must look both visually pleasing and offer people and brands something. Fashion is a good example of this. People search for styling tips and brands want to promote clothing.

#5 Promote, promote, promote

You can have the most fantastic content but if no one sees it then what is the point of it being there? Research SEO, use social media and even start an advertising campaign if you have a budget for that.

Fashion: Summer Evening Dresses

Summertime Party 

See my favourite evening dresses, which are perfect for a summer party, by Rosa Fairfield


1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5

The warmer weather is a great excuse to wear a beautiful gown. The latest thing I've added into my life plan is to go to more fancy events so I can wear pretty dresses (not that I need an excuse, I wore an evening dress to university once). 

My favourite is dress number two. I love the contrasting colours and the shape. It accentuates the waist and is fitted on the top so would be great for someone with a similar figure to mine. The website Muee have a great range of wedding dresses and they are affordable.

Fashion: Vintage floral dress, coat and camera

Finding my direction

After being out of university for a year, I made a pretty bad decision. I had dreams of becoming an oscar-winning actress and having my own fashion label. Somewhere along the line, I lost faith in myself and thought that I needed to find a more realistic career in order to ever make money.


That was a mistake. When I stop and think about it, I know that I'll never be happy with the whole London based office-type job, standard marriage, two kids and white picket fence thingy. I have to go out there and chase down my dreams, travel the world and have crazy adventures.

I'd like to be a good role model for the people in my life and my imaginary future children and I can't do that unless I'm true to myself.

Fashion Outfit Ideas: Animal prints

Hear me roar 

"Why not rock a cute animal print this Spring? Check out my wishlist picks of the week, by Rosa Fairfield."


I'm currently rolling with the animal theme, after my post earlier in the week. I'm also going crazy over the colour yellow. It's a trend that's in again this season. I love yellow because it's fun, happy and makes me think of the warm summer days to come.

Now, when I think yellow, I think bees. I'm loving the design of dress number 4 because the illustration is whimsical but ornate instead of having a cartoonish feel. Top number 2 is my favourite, I've been obsessed with butterflies ever since seeing the Alexander McQueen dress that ended up in The Hunger Games. It almost looks like lots of different butterflies have landed on that top. You can buy this top and more via the StyleWe website (link bellow).

Finally, I have a thing for snakes. Love them, have held a couple and had one wrapped around my shoulders. Ring number 6 has a creative design, as the loop of the ring hole is part of the snakes coiled body - such a cool effect. 

You can purchase all of these from StyleWe - they also have a blog, featuring awesome post such as: what is a romper and how to dress like a skater  (I was such an Avril Lavigne fan growing up).

Fashion: western outfit, cowboy boots and hat horse editorial

Farm Fun

"Tired of pastels and girly florals? Discover my alternative, boho-western look for spring, by Rosa Fairfield"






















This was one of the happiest days I've had in a while. I spent my most of my time, at this farm, laughing and smiling. If you've been following my blog for a while, you will know that I love anything with a western theme. I also adore animals.

As a child, my bookcase would be full of animal stories, my favourite being the Animal Ark series. I would cry every time someone would try to kill a bug and dreamed of becoming a dolphin trainer (that dream was pretty short lived as my goal of becoming an actress overshadowed it).

This post has also reminded me how much I need to go horse-riding again, something to write on my summer to-do list. Also, I really need to buy a pair of proper cowboy boots.

With this outfit, I wanted to create something that had a western-cowboy vibe without it looking like a dressing-up outfit. The dress has boho and floaty feel and the boots don't look too western so it adds a nice contrast with the hat and jacket.


I think it's a nice alternative spring look, for when you are tired of pastels and girly florals. Its such a comfortable outfit to wear too because its loose fitting.
