lula lula lula.

I recently purchased the latest Autumn/Winter issue of Lula, and I was very lucky as it as it was the last one in borders. Here are some photos of the pages that have really inspired me for my latest Textiles project. As i love the pale pastelley colours and the vintage feel the photos give.

Here are just some odd snapshots I took while in London the other week. I didnt take many as I was in abit of a rush. I decided to edit them on adobe photoshop and on the internet site rollip. I liked all the effects I did of the taxi so therefore decided to combine them in a three way photo.

topshop mania.

I recently went into my favourite Topshop store, and as i was by myself, i used the opportunity to try absolutely everything on that caught my eye. Now of course you can only take a maximum of 6 items in, so i went to the upstairs and downstairs changing rooms! This was my favourite outfit out of the bunch, which was; a lace tunic and grey denim jeggings/treggings (i have no idea what they are called) and my own brogues.

london calling.

Yesterday I spent the day in London, which I normally go to every couple of months for a recent art exhibitions and a spot of shopping. I went to see Per Kirkeby in the Tate Modern, and as it was middle of the week, just as the gallery was opening, the exhibition was almost empty and very easy to look around. I didn't really know what to expect about going to see his work, but i really enjoyed it. The postcards and photographs of his work don't do them justice! The colours in them are beautiful and really eye catching, with big blocks of colour with "scribbles" or outlines over them. They layering of the paints and textures was just incredible and with some of the scales of the pieces, I would find myself standing staring at them for ages! All in all a really great trip, cant wait till i go again, hopefully soon!

This was the outfit i wore today; a dress slip by Yuki, Topshop brown leather satchel, vintage blue thin waist belt and black Topshop Brogues.

And i got these beautiful booties from Urban Outfitters. A bit pricey but the quality is of an amazing standard, and they were a lovely early birthday present!

todays wearings

I am wearing a Zara turquoise cardigan which i decided to wear as i all ways stick to the same old navy/grey/black cardi, a dress slip from this little shop called KOKO tucked into an Urban Outfitters skirt, vintage blue belt, accessorize velvet shoes and accessorize beaded bracelets and of course the 'nerd' glasses from Primark wear i simply popped the dark lenses out.

vintage happenings

Whilst wondering through town yesterday i went into one of favourite little shops that has no name. Its one of those really cute vintage shops that just seems to store every bit and bob by not going too charity shop. Anyway looking around i noticed for the first time that it had an upstairs and he had a really mix of things. And in the corner of the room out came these vintage canvases,

which reminded very much of my 'Vintage Inspired' art topic that i have basically finished with just a few finishing touches to development and the final piece so i thought i would share you a few pages.

Keep checking back for posts of the dress!

summer time

I have recently just spent my holiday down in East Sussex for a wonderful week with friends and family, where we would go exploring all of the various fields until we were told by a passing driver that farmers don't actually like people walking through their crops! So we won't be doing that again! As this holiday was in England and English weather isn't always the best, even though its suppose to be summer, I made it a challenge to myself to go through the week wearing as many dresses, skirts and shorts as I could, rather than wearing the good old jeans. In this photograph I am wearing a Topshop cardigan, Oxford university t-shirt from Covent Garden market and also a Topshop skirt which I haven't worn in ages so I am giving it a new lease of life!

hi there

This my new blog which is a rather silly thing to write as its quite an obvious statement, but trying to choose the first words to feature on a blog is difficult. It will be a blog devoted to my fashion inspirations ranging from the tiniest things from Internet shopping to having an entirely inspirational trip which will include my own personally style thoughts. I also love art and and anything creative as from an early age my mother took me to many art gallery's which meant I was always filling up sketchpads with random drawings. But now recently I have started to take art more seriously and I am very devoted to it even if I sometimes complain i don't have enough time! Anyway enough of my rambling I hope you will enjoy my thoughts, inspirations and photos in my blog and will be an avid reader!
