Frassy is Audrey Lieghton, the English Lit student based in Spain/Durham with a passion for vintage and all things boho. Each post starts with a famous literary quote, with artfully haphazard shots of her posing in outfits (often charity shop and vintage finds), and the stunted prose reminds me a little of Hunter S. Thompson.
I’m currently trying to write an article about winter trends for Bristol, all the way from sunny Florida, so naturally I’ve spent the last hour blog surfing in a bid to become the world’s best (or should that be worst?) procrastinator. Thankfully I did though, because that’s how I found Frassy, this week’s BoW.
I knew I was onto a winner when I clocked the use of ‘label maker’ fonts – a typeface I’ve always loved, not to mention label makers in general, of which I which I am a proud owner (geeky, I know). Then came the Polaroids and use of black and white – this may sound cliche, but all are big ticks on my design radar.
Not only does Audrey have a beautifully presented blog, she also sells her own homemade t-shirts and some vintages pieces on her sister site, Frassy Rags. The only disappointment I found was that a gorgeous worn brown leather bag I had my eye on had already been sold. I’m not sure if the store was a one off thing or how often it is updated but hopefully this stylish student will have more stock soon…
