I'm Ellie, a 19 year old student from London. Currently studying a Menswear degree at Kingston, this blog (ex url - roseandvintage) was created in November 2012 as a way of documenting my changing interests and storing inspiration. I have enjoyed making it develop and grow, and in June 2014 was awarded 'Best Teen Style Blogger' at Company Magazine's style blogger awards.

Since then I have focused my interests on building a body of work and experience; I created my magazine, Bloom, in 2016, with issue 2 on the way, and have worked hard submitting photography and writing work to various online publications.

As of 2017 I now work as the Fashion Assistant at XXY Magazine, whilst still pursuing photography and writing in my spare time, and studying for a Menswear degree.

I hope to keep this page as a log of things as they happen; I tried different types of blogging over the years but want to keep this page as a more homely space and an archive of my work, rather than a corporate advertising scheme. I also have a website for my photography and fashion work which can be found here, and create art for De Wallen collective.


  1. Hey there, Ellie.
    I've been wanting to conduct a little series of interviews on another young, cool, hip (that's a teensy bit of schmoozing for you) bloggers and I was wondering if you wouldn't mind be apart of it?
    Just reply to one of my blog posts or email me: khenzonatalia@gmail.com

    1. Ah thankyou and of course, emailed you back :) x

  2. Hey, just to say your blog is amazing! Great style sense :) And - in the least stalkerish way possible, don't worry - I really recognise you?! I'm a Londoner too, whereabouts in the outskirts do you live? Florence x

  3. Hi Ellie!
    I ADORE your style, pictures and overall blog! I am currently writing about my best friend, Madeline; one of the most talented photographers I know. But more than being such a phenomenal artist, she is THE most modest, genuine and humble person that I have ever met (as you can tell through her blog postings text).
    If there is anyway that you would mind checking out her blog or instagram it would mean so much to me (and her since you are one of her favorite bloggers!).
