When I was in primary school, my classmates gave me the nickname 'Bel K Rowling', and I have not stopped bombarding people with my inane ramblings since that day. And yes, I know that's a rubbish nickname.
My name is Bel, I currently live in East London and work as an editorial assistant at an arts marketing agency. My hobbies outside work include occasionally hitting the right notes on the ukulele, smiling at dogs and dying my hair lots of different colours.
Rags of Love gets its name from a quote by Angela Carter, which you can see above. It started out as a way to document my personal style, my Peter Pan collar addiction and my dress hoarding problem, and has since become a place for me to share my thoughts on anything from my favourite designers to exciting places to go in London. Oh, and also a place to share my love for anything garishly colourful and weird.

To get a feel of what I write about on Rags (my abbreviated pet name for this blog), feel free to start with some of my favourite posts which I've collated here!

I'm also depressingly active on Twitter and Instagram.

If you'd like to get in touch with me about anything, you can find me here:
