notdressedaslamb 's Thoughts:

The eleventh day of the eleventh month: Remembrance Day. This post was a tribute to the amazing men and women we remember on November 11th, and I wore my poppy with pride :)

I have created a series of retro-look photos showing my outfit for this important day, showing the poppy I made myself after seeing all the bling poppies worn on TV. I decided to donate the money I would have paid for a bling poppy straight to the Royal British Legion and make my own instead, and it inspired my ever-so-slightly retro outfit because of the day’s connection with the world wars (it’s the hair, lips and pearls that do it).

Quite by accident one of the shots was very overexposed and it looked like a really early colour photo, so I decided to go with it and create a similar effect on all of the final photos. I shall wear my poppy with pride and treasure it for next year, when I’ll donate and wear my poppy again so the charity gets 100% of my money.

Stay safe everyone x
