I, the London Fashion Week virgin

February 17, 2014

Yes, I had never been to the London Fashion Week before. Not that I have been now, but as I was right on the other side of Somerset House to see the exhibition Isabella Blow: Fashion Galore! (which, by the way, I highly recommend) and decided to go and have a look at what was going on. Unfortunately photography wasn’t allowed in the exhibition so I couldn’t take any images to show you, just this one, taken by the entrance.

I was with my friend Lala from Ohlalali, and by the time we arrived at the entrance on the other side we could see that a lot of people were already leaving. I think most likely because the sun was starting to go down, as there were still shows going on, for what I gathered. Nonetheless, there were still plenty of people hanging around, taking photos or waiting for someone to ask them to take their photos. I was only there for about 20 minutes, took some photos of a couple of people and left as there was nothing there to see, really. I didn’t really understand why people will go and spend their days hanging around if they’re not either working or attending the shows…

These girls scandalized me, because it was goddamn cold!!!

Regular blokes – having all the fun.

Fab hair.

Cute looking girl.

And this is me… wrapped up very warm as I am still recovering from a mofo cold. This photo was taken in a much less stylish location – in front of Tesco’s! Haha. Details: Coat – Zara, Metallic Leather Skirt – River Island (both from a swap with my friend Lili), Knee Highs – H&M (on sale), Bag – Ahcahcum Muchacha, Pink Boots – Doc Martens (via Ebay), Ivory Cashmere Jumper – from a jumble sale, Cardigan – H&M (via Ebay), Scarf – secret Santa, Hat – it was my Mum’s.

I am told I may be given some decent photos of the Fashion Week shenagigans to post later in the week, so stay tuned!


Flashback Friday – Personal style from the vault…

January 24, 2014

Almost a year ago the company hosting my site had a problem with their servers- causing loss of data and the blog being down for weeks. For that reason I never got round to sharing all the photos I took in Belgium last year and it’s a shame not to. I did a roundup of all the outfits I wore that weekend so here they are. Better late then never. I think they’re cute enough not to be wasted. Do you agree?

Dress – H&M, (via Ebay), Shoes – Office, (via Ebay, now defunct), Thigh Highs – H&M, Jumper – French Connection (via Ebay), Necklace – Zara (borrowed from Ohlalali)

Leopard Ears Hat and Coat – H&M, both via Ebay, Scarf – El Corte Ingles, I’ve lost it in the meantime, Blue Gloves – present from my friend Linda in NYC (hello!), Muff – Ebay, Bag – Target

Dress, with heart pockets and back buttons – Nishe, Long sleeve top – Primark, Cardigan – Vintage, Leggings – Calzedonia, Shoes – Office, via Ebay. It’s also funny to see how much my hair has grown in almost a year – it’s down to my shoulders now!

Daria Dress – ASOS, Boots – Dr Martens, Shades – I don’t remember the name of the brand but I got them in TK Maxx. I call this look the Daria look because it’s just like the character.

Jumper – From Ebay, Skirt – from a second hand shop in Brussels. I had to put it on because it wouldn’t fit my suitcase haha. I love how it’s got little skiers all over it.

Which one is your favourite? This weekend will be a quiet one, and I need it. Hope you have a good one too!

Office Looks 3 – Totally Inappropriate looks for the Office

May 11, 2013

To be sane in a world of madmen is in itself madness.

(Jean Jacques Rousseau)

Given the above, I choose to be mad and wear what makes me happy to my workplace. Although this has been my second week at home like a beached whale in bed recovering from the op, I still have office outfits to share, so here we go now. Wooo!

And you ask, why is this inappropriate? Because it’s fun! You’re not supposed to have fun at work! lol

Details : Leopard Coat – Bershka, Cardigan – Vintage, Stripy Tshirt – Zara, Dress – Nishe (via Ebay), Shoes – Dr Martens (via Paige Joanna), Bag – Target, Bee Ring – Pedra Dura (present from friends in Lisbon)

This one is a favourite among children. Children and I have a lot in common when it comes to taste in clothes.

Details – Jacket – Monki (from a swap with Lili), Scuba Top – H&M (via Ebay), Skater Skirt – Ebay, Bag – Ahcahcum Muchacha, Rainbow Platform Shoes – Office Outlet on Ebay

So here I am waiting for all the bruising to heal and become less painful. I should be going back to the grind stone on Monday. How was your week?
