Why don't you be the artist, and make me out of clay.

Sunday, 20 February 2011


I'm listening to Ellie Goulding's Bright Light's album, typing up this post on my train back to Notts. What a great weekend it has been! Spent an incredible Two days at London Fashion Week with the lovliest of people and I have 297 Photos and Videos to prove it! I'll be putting my favourites up by Tuesday at the latest! Today I stayed in to watch classic movies on TCM with my family, we saw Jane Russel's and Marilyn Monroe's Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, it was so sweet and funny! We were originally meant to go to the cinema, but none of us could move from the comfy positions we occupied in the telly room haha!

Here's what I wore today. I feel like I'm finding my element when it comes to my personal style. I've seen patterns with my growing wardrobe…I'm drawn to soft textures like chiffon, and vintage pieces that add character. I'm seriously having fun putting all of them together! These jeans are definitely a staple piece in my wardrobe, they go with everything, and my oh my…Topshop did a great job in bringing out these Jefferey Campbell Lita Look-a-likes, how I love them so. I call them my LFW Shoes, I've worn them everyday since Friday!! :D ..xo
