I dreamed your dream for you

Topshop shirt
mom's belt

Swooshy pants and a cutsie blouse.. more of a summery outfit but at least it didn't rain and I didn't freeze so spring feels like it's arriving. :)

Everytime it's harder to show this sort of skirt - they come into their own when striding. :)

I'm gonna be the one that he loves

^Lady Gaga




Topshop crop top
H&M denim jacket
H&M leather pants
Underground creepers
gifted jewellery

I rarely get my hair done/cut and I have never had it curled before...WOW I am in love. I feel so incredibly much like Lana Del Rey and I so need to learn to do this myself. I should probably buy a hairdryer first... :)

I can't stay

^The Killers




abercrombie jumper
American Apparel skirt worn as dress
Topshop socks
gifted scarf (with attatched metalwork)
mother's blazer
Underground creepers

Actually wore this with tights but since I couldn't find any plain black ones (why is my drawer filled with deceptive navy, why why why?) and a friend told me this outfit "just needs a pair of knee highs to be a bad catholic schoolgirl" I figured why not. Not that I had that in mind at all when deciding what to wear. I was feeling more punky-but-sweet, weird. Also my look how long my hair is! :)

Down by the river





River Island tshirt
abercrombie cardi
old gilet/bodywarmer
Topshop pants
Topshop boots
River Island scarf
satchel from Christmas markets

I've always wanted to take photos by this beautiful little pond but people dump rubbish in it so the pond itself's not very pretty. There were still a pair of very cute mallards swimming around. :)

Remember the time...




Topshop earrings
mother's cardi
H&M leather skirt

self-made earrings
H&M shirt
Ostwald Helgason dress
Underground creepers

The mean reds and blue moods. Contemplating chopping my hair again, I want to be able to roll it like I did here and have never ever managed to do so well again since. Yeah my hair's annoying me at the moment. Why so same-y? :)

River Island scarf
Urban Outfitters jumper
River Island vest
H&M leather pants
Underground creepers
earrings from V&A museum giftshop

Asos scarf
father's jumper
Zara tshirt
old earrings

old vest
Topshop leggings
Topshop earrings
Topshop gloves

Excuse the extremely odd faces. I'm awful at packing because I can only ever realise what I want to wear at that very moment so if I pack over only one evening, all my outfits will look the same, or I pack everything I own to allow myself some variety (I'm not so good at packing light). Anyway now I don't feel like wearing leggings, a sweater and big earrings for at least what, two days. See, capsule wardrobes turn me insane. :)

Elegance personified




All clothes Ann Balon
Kurt Geiger shoes

I haven't blogged for far too long because I've been at Pure, a London womenswear trade exhibition with Ann Balon. Wearing a knee-length lilac lace dress is not my usual style but I quite enjoyed floating around pretending to be sophisticated. And I was totally reminded of Christopher Kane's "Princess Margaret" collection, only not so much "on acid". :)

Ps. Oh and I believe the phone was because I was going for a "the modern tech teenagers can wear Italian lace too"

Teddy girl





mother's blazer
abercrombie sweater
old pyjama top
H&M fake leather pants
Underground creepers

Creepin' and creakin' in ma leather. I wore this yesterday and it was so much fun: a pyjama top + leather pants + creepers. I got a variety of comments from "you look like David Bowie in a good way" (as if there's a bad way) through to "you look like a nice sex pest" and "I like your prostitute shoes" (creepers have never been a prostitute thing). I also tried on a friend's black velvet blazer and felt like a Teddy Boy which was definitely a good moment. :)

I need direction to perfection

vintage shirt
Topshop trousers
father's cardigan
Underground creepers

I hate taking photos inside but I had to blog my new babieees. Meet my brothel creepers. Even the name is fabulously weird. :)

Use somebody


vintage shirt
Topshop skirt
Topshop boots

Completely unexpected car headlights though a Flu when it's been snowing...not cool. Excuse my lack of posting while I've been dying. :)

Keep some face, you know you've only got one

^The Killers




River Island vest
H&M jacket
Topshop earrings

Having a big hair day for unknown reasons but big hair is awesome - I got told I looked "more like a lion than usual", cool. I'm also in the midst of an eyeshadow obsession...just waiting for the right day to display my blue look... :)
