Pizza slice




Nathalie du Pasquier x American Apparel shirt
jeans from India
H&M jacket
backpack from Spain
platform Converse
wings from San Diego
watch from Shepard's Bush Market

It's kind of ironic that I was wearing this Chanel-inspired jacket today since I've been writing and making a little zine which is full of Chanel-bashing. But whatever, it was a rare opportunity to bust out a jacket that doesn't get enough wear because it's hardly ever the right weather. The title of this post refers to this shirt which I love to bits and have to force myself not to wear every day. I think the abstract print looks like pizzas but I've heard all sorts of opinions ranging from microbes to pomegranates. I've been wearing a lot of white-based or pale prints recently. I think I may have evolved from my pastel phase to a white phase…. but maximalist white, obviously. Also I got a cute new watch because I somehow managed to lose mine within the first week of uni. I usually hate 99% of watches because they are just so damn ugly (watches are not jewellery. Why is everyone pretending they are??) but I'm weirdly attracted to this one because it's quite simple yet such a tacky gold colour. :)

Late night, bright light




jacket and skirt made by me
Uniqlo top
random tights
platform Converse
with wings from a market in San Diego

My life at the moment is just uni, uni, uni, tubes to and from uni. Hence these photos hastily taken on the way home. Uni is still pretty damn intense, but at least I've had my first deadline done and dusted and I think it went relatively well. Now to bash some more. Anyone who says fashion is easy is LYING their little ass off.

Anyway, I made this little (very little - this is why you should try clothes on before hemming them!) skirt out of leftover fabric from making my jeans, and a couple of leftover strips of PVC because PVC is always a good idea. I also made this little jacket and a matching skirt over the summer so now I have an adorable little skirt suit in mustard yellow! I currently love yellow just because it is such an aggressively and uncompromisingly attention-grabbing colour:)

Hi, hello! I am here, I am alive. Uni has been super stressful and hectic the past couple of weeks (still is) and I've been so sad that I've been wearing fabulous stuff every day but just not had the chance to shoot. When I packed for uni, I was very worried I wouldn't be able to take all my clothes so I packed in order of "fun-ness", meaning I prioritised packing anything sparkly, fluffy, brightly coloured or generally interesting. I didn't have enough space left for boring stuff like black t-shirts, plain hoodies and jeans which means that now, getting dressed every morning is a fun experiment! I strongly believe in dressing well/fun, especially when you're having a bad day. No mater how bad your day is, at least you're well dressed! And fluffiness makes everyone around you happy too! :)
