Girl of Now is a fashion and lifestyle blog based in the UK. It is intensely personal, featuring outfits, experiences and random musings from the author, offering what I hope to be an unique and insightful perspective on fashion, travel and the journey of life.
I, Rebecca Amy Oakes (but please, just Bec), was born in West Lancashire on the 85th day of the year, 1995. I have lived the entirety of my existence so far in the north west, between a tiny town called Burscough and what I believe to be one of the greatest cities in the world , Manchester, where I have been studying intermittently since 2014. As of September 2016, I am studying English Language at the University of Manchester, following previous studies in Art History.
Girl of Now proudly stands alongside my education as both an outlet for sharing my passions for fashion, travel and everything in-between and as a platform from which I can develop my personal brand in an ever-growing digital world.
And, if nothing else, Girl of Now should be a place that inspires thought and the pursuit of individuality. Now, go explore!
Be daring, be different, be impractical, be anything that will insert integrity of purpose and imaginative vision against the play-it-safers, the creatures of the commonplace, the slaves of the ordinary ~ Cecil Beaton
