Dress ups.

July 30, 2008

Concise dressing has never been a strong point of mine. I guess because I like so many different styles, and I switch between them from one day to the next, so they often overlap and create some outfits which start off nice but end up… odd… Anyhoo, here are some snippets of my ‘concise’ outfits from my past week.

Worn with my gladiator sandals! Skirt, H&M; t-shirt, GAP; belt, vintage. I didn’t think this was too mix and match when I put it on, but I kinda think it was. I keep getting dressed in outfits, going out, and realizing I look like a grown-out hippy. Not saying that’s a bad thing, but I keep doing it unknowingly…

 

£8 Primark shoes + cute lil’ ribbon socks from Japan = happy feet. My friend is going to Japan at the end of the year- SO jealous, I’m invited but can’t afford it. Do I let him know now that I’m starting a list of things for him to bring me back….?

This next outfit is somethng I wore when going out for a meal with the ‘rents- my dad was driving so I got to wear my highest heels without worrying! We went to Old Orleans at Sixfields in Northampton. I’m telling you this so that you know NEVER to go there.

I like this outfit best. Definitely going to wear it again, or something similar!

Top, Topshop; trousers, GAP; shoes, Betty Jackson; bag, Nine West. Accessories- suggestions, anyone….?

Sophia Kokosalaki Resort 2009

July 28, 2008

I love the details, the draping and the Egyptian Influence in the Sophia Kokosalaki Resort 2009 collection. The colours are a little too pastel for me, I prefer darker, jewel colours. I think the dresses in black and navy blue look stunning!

Topshop AW 08

July 22, 2008

I’m liking a lot of stuff in the Topshop AW08 Look Book, especially the lightening shorts, the gold and white top and the fringe skirt! Looks like they will have some nice things in this winter. Although, I wasn’t as impressed with the shoes as I have been recently.

Vivienne Westwood Fall 08 – Ready to wear

July 21, 2008

Inspired by my recent visit to the Vivienne Westwood exhibition at the Millennium Gallery in Sheffield, I have spent my dinner time today browsing the Fall 2008 ready to wear collection (why is it ‘Fall’ when she is English though!). A lot of the collection is a bit too garish for me, there’s a lot of random clashing prints. There are a few looks however, that I really love! The dresses in particular are gorgeous, and the tights!

Inspirations

July 20, 2008

I save a lot of the fashion photos I like to a folder on my hard drive. I’ve been doing it for a couple of years now, and I have hundreds and hundreds of photos! I though that I would share a few that I have been finding inspirational lately. There is a lot of black, white and grey here, but that’s the way my tastes have been going recently. I can’t stand colours or prints at the moment!

Shop discovery.

July 18, 2008

Siren. Mostly I’m thinking I like it. Some things I don’t get, but each to their own, right? Some of it’s a little Alice In Wonderland. Some of it’s really chavvy looking. Some of it’s a bit Harajuku/chav cross-over. Some of it’s just plain cutesy. Some of it’s… odd…
