Crilly Circa 2002

ruth crilly old picture

I have been going through my old polaroid pictures. I want to scan them into my computer before they fade or get lost in the mountains of papers and old bits and bobs that I have hoarded beneath the spare bed!

This polaroid is from 2002, I think. Perhaps even the end of 2001. It was a test shoot, which means that it was an unpaid job for the whole team – everyone was working to get pictures for their portfolios. I have absolutely loads of polaroids from this shoot, I’ll dig out the rest and post them up when I’ve scanned them in.

Don’t polaroids have a beautiful quality? There’s something magical about them, I think. I miss the days of polaroid! Now it’s all super-high-tec and digitally retouched, you don’t get quite the same result.

On a side-note, how amazing is my hair? If I still had a baby-face like this, I’d totally have this hair. Though I’d have to curl it like this all the time, which would get boring… Very cool though. I may one day have to re-visit this particular style!


  1. Love it Ruth! You still look exactly the same

  2. hi ruth – hope this doesn’t sound bizarro or anything but you looked absolutely stunning!! (obvs you still do now) I do love the hair particularly xx

  3. Bonjour Ruth i have been following your blog posts for along time and really like them , just wanted to say i totally agree with the “old days” photography ! and that photo of you is magnifique ( in case you havent guessed already i’m French ! so if you need any info on French products dont hesitate) Bonne journée

  4. Hey Ruth. How come you deleted my comment on your other post re: what foundation I shoud buy?!?? :S

  5. The hair is very ‘there’s something about Mary’ don’t you think? Polaroids look amazing compared to all the edited things these days. They miss the magical feeling and are considered vintage already.

  6. Gorgeous pic, Ruth. You haven’t changed though! xx

  7. you don’t look any different!
    I love polaroids too, shame they’ve discontinued them x

  8. Surely this pic was taken yesterday ;-P you look exactly the same, sans the it took me a whole day to do hair!

  9. Ruth, this is stunning! Totally agree about the polaroids and old photos in general. There’s always something charmingly imperfect about them.

    I love your blasts from the past… very much looking forward to when you’ve scanned the rest of your photos :) x

  10. You look stunning Ruth! This hairstyle suits you, it reminds me of Hollywood glamour. But I agree with you, having to curl and style the hair everyday would be a hassle. I prefer to sleep a bit more or spend more time on my makeup. ;)
