Video Killed The Radio Star

Denim cut offs: Vintage Levis. Body suit: American Apparel. 
Pink Chuck Taylors: Converse. Belt: Vintage. Matt black wayfarers: Rayban - borrowed from the boy. 

A couple of days ago the boy came running into the house... "The light outside is perfect and there's an old TV in the street!!!" To him this meant one thing: Photo shoot. 

People were driving by giving us the "you are crazy" look but we took the shots regardless. One of the hazards of having a fashion blog is people looking at you strangely while you stand and take pictures in the street. Oh well :) I think the first shot is awesome. It's very 'attack of the 100 foot woman'....

I got some exciting news today.... I'm gonna be shooting a new TV series! I was planning to go back to LA at the end of the month but I don't think I will now because I'll be busy filming here until November. That's a loooooooong shoot. I'll give you all the juicy details when it's all locked in and finalized.

Meanwhile I'm shooting 'Victim' the movie and loving it. The boy came down to set and took a few shots so I'll share them with you later this week.

p.s Do any of you have any good blog recommendations? I read loads of them already but I'm always on the look out for good up and coming ones.

The shots do look awesome, don't worry about those people that drove by. They just don't understand! Congrats on your TV series. That's so cool. Can't wait to see the shots from the movie!

You sound very happy, Ashley.

The first shot is my favourite! And the stares should be normal to you, no? If not for the middle-of-the-road-photoshoot, it's your looks -- you're gorgeous

LookinFab said...

That's exactly what me and by guy were discussing today. It's hard for me to take pictures one the street, I don't like all the extra attention...

What an amazing TV, you boy was right to take you this photoshoot!

Sandra said...

Wow, your leggggs are awesome! I love pinky convers!

Li said...

Wow, love the mini photoshoot! Your boyfriend is adorable! Congrats on your series!

Amy from Forever Curiouser said...

love the converse, such fun shots! =] x

Jehh said...

Your legs scream "envy me" louder than anything else. If only my legs complied with my commands of growing longer legs.

I agree with the strange looks from other people, they're like "wtf are you doing, and who do you think you are?"

Project details!! I'm so excited to see more of your work, because your role in TBL was so good
I hope your movie comes to Canada!

love you!

rainbows & fairydust said...

JJ said...

This is such a cool blog :)

I love these photos especially. I first saw you in Secret Diary, but I'm very sad to say that advertising for TBL was very poor indeed. I LIVE IN NY and did not hear about that show until it was canceled! I'm going to have to watch it on line, because I adore you and will watch you in anything <3

have fun with the new series, congrats!



Lucy said...

Great photos !!

Have a look at my blog and let me know what you think:

SHAMEEN said...

simple and fashionable. i love the outfit

Being thin, rich and pretty are sure the important things in lfe, eh??

bit superficial isn't it?

you may be rich (are you really though?) and you may be pretty (apart from that moon forehead)... but your thiness is nothing to make me insane.

You need some fat, some boobs and an arse. You have the body of a 12 year old for gods sake! How Iddo can want to go to bed with that...

slappedactress said...

I LOVE the ensemble! It's very chic rocker. (And I'm jealous of there just being a tv in the street. I wish that happened more often where I live.)

I can't wait to hear about this new series! Since you said Bambi won't be back on SDOACG, I wasn't sure where we'd see you next!

As for blogs, I only read three others, aside from this one.
A college friend's daily blog: http://transferlife.tumblr.com/
A fashion blog: http://whatiwore.tumblr.com/
A friend's music blog: http://scratchedintooursouls.wordpress.com/
(And then, there's always my blog, which is somewhat comprehensive of reviews and fashion and whatever else I feel it's necessary to blog about!)

Always, Cait

Ring My Bell said...

The MOST important thing is being happy. Which I am :) And all smart comments from me aside I think that is what must be driving you insane.... otherwise why would you keep coming back to the blog? It obviously distresses you in some way. However it's your life (eh hem) and if this is how you want to spend your time- then good luck to you.

I've said it before and I'll say it again: Splashing about your negativity under the safety of 'anonymous' is lame. No face- no game.

Live it like it's golden.

Kim said...

Love the shorts! you're so pretty :) also, i don't know if you'll bother checking it out but the latest blog i subscribed to was


Not that many people know about him - he deserves more subscribers! hah :)

Iana said...

This is my fave photo shoot by far...simply gorgeous! Ignore the anonymous hater and good luck with the new show xox

Ring My Bell said...

Thanks for all the recommendations! I'm going to check them all out :)

Lana- You are so right! I think I will just have to ignore 'anonymous' from now on. I just remembered that Mark Twain quote: "Never argue with a fool; onlookers may not be able to tell the difference"

Shhhh said...

I love the first photo you look amazing, so fierce and your tanned legs go on forever!


Kara said...

Your blog is definately my favorite! Your legs are Awesome! Dont even pay the slightest bit of attention to the sad, jealous fool! Its so obvious why they are hating.... You Rock! ;) x

Lizzie T said...

I love the photographs and the cool and simple styling! I wish I had legs like yours.

As for a blog to recommend, I recently started one, so that's up and coming, right? =) Feel free to have a look!


One of my favourite blog is:
Very feminine and girly styling. She's already pretty established though. Maybe you've seen it?

Congrats on the new TV series!

Yas said...

Hey -
I recognize my street and even my living room window. :)
All the shots are good - I think I like the 3rd one a lot, if you could airbrush yourself on the pic, it would be perfect ;)

Not as exciting as yours, but that's my blog: I keep telling myself to update it more. http://zyasmine.blogspot.com

Congrats on the new show! :)

I think I saw you on marylebone high street the other day with your friend Kevin, was going to say hi but you were on the phone (you looked sooo pretty though)!!!

Simone said...

Great photos girl, love it!

This shoot is AWESOME! I love it!!!

I discovered intermediatetones.blogspot.com surfing through the blogsphere and it has good writing bits. The pictures are very amateur like, but the writing is definitely worth taking a look at it.

stylescrapbook.com is a good fashion blog too.

Check them out.

Ignore the haters hon, we all wish we were thin and young and pretty. There will be plenty of time later to be not thin and not young -- enjoy everything life brings you along the way and you'll have no regrets!

RaindropsofSapphire said...

This is definitely a very funky photoshoot! It's got that 80s retro vibe to it :D Love it!

Congratulations too on the TV series and the movie you are shooting! That's great news :D Can't wait to see the behind the scenes pics!

You already read most of the blogs I do and you know about mine as it's in your blogroll so I can't think of anymore :( Sorry!


love the first shot!!! & congratulation on your new tv series!

These photos make your legs look miles long - gorgeous as usual.

Exciting! I can't wait - I loved you on The Beautiful Life so will be great to see your acting chops in a new show xx


S.Ella said...

why does my bloglovin not let me know when u update??

I love that first shot so much! Ignore the idiots. Funny how the more they spew negativity the more successful you become (congratulations on the new TV series btw).

As for blog reccommendations, a lot of good ones have been posted already so I'm going to do a shameless plug for my own - strutt mode

Kyli Rochelle said...

LOVE! You have the longest legs ever! And the tv in the middle of the street... love it!

Is it too selfish if I try to recommend my own blog to you? :))

QuiteQuaint said...

I really like these images, amazing luck to find the old tv in the street! Plus your legs look absolutely incredible! Hah.
Congrats on the new series. I thought you were really good in Secret Diary of a Call Girl, I'd never seen your blog at that point, so it was really nice to stumble across it.
As for blogs, I have a few favourites, but of course Im going to shamelessly suggest my own hah! But if it doesn't take your fancy, I've added a few other links too! x
