Hey Guys! Long time no post. I kind of left this blog to crumble away while I built up one that focuses more on the thing I'm really passionate about, which is music. I love fashion (which this blog very loosely used to revolve around) but I feel I have a lot more to say and a lot of fairly strong opinions on music. Feel free to check it out at

And thanks if you're still checking this blog... I'm amazed but it seems some people are! You guys are truly lovely.

I can't even state how good they were. They fricking blew my mind, and I was sitting. Any band that can reduce someone in the sitting area nearly to tears are genius, it was one of the more emotional gigs I've been to. And I pretty much hyperventilated when Yannis came on, and just arggghhh everything! Spanish Sahara was awesome but the best I think was either French Open or Two Steps Twice...Oh and did I mention I fricking MET YANNIS AFTERWARDS?! He is the best thing in my entire life, and gave us his cigarette. Quite simply one of the best gigs ever. Oh with signed tshirts on their way. My life is just a little bit more complete.

Yannis Fricking Yannis.

Awesome Lasers


Our wonderful banner, literally seconds before we met Yannis, which he said he loved ♥

And possibly my favourite picture ever? Obviously not from yesterday, or taken by me, but still... fricking awesome. I love these two, and I'm seeing them both inside one weekend.

Sorry AGAIN for the lack of posting for a while! I'm still here guys :) I'm going to see Foals tonight, which should be amazing and I'm incredibly excited. Plus going to the Tate before that. Such a cultured day today! I love how much you can do with one day off school. School is in fact, the main reason why I haven't been updating, its the most time consuming thing in my life. Anywayyyy. I will post pictures of Foals & some outfits tomorrow!

I know this is a bit of a deviation from my normal posts, but a change is as good as a rest or whatever the phrase is. Anyway, I'm obsessed with music (as most people are in some way, shape or form) and I think its so important to share what you think is good, and what inspires you, and what makes you literally stop and put everything down and just dance. So this is my definitive list of whats good right now...

  1. Still A Weirdo - KT Tunstall 
  2. Wonderman - Tinie Tempah
  3. Hypest Hype - Chase and Status ft Temper T
  4. Whip my Hair - Willow Smith
  5. Infinity Guitars - Sleigh Bells
  6. New Low - Middle Class Rut
  7. French Open - Foals
  8. Eat That Up, It's Good For You - Two Door Cinema Club
  9. Hold Yuh - Gyptian (the version ft Nicki Minaj is better, lets not lie, but the originals good)
  10. Game Over -Tinchy Stryder (Feat. Tinie Tempah, Giggs, Devlin, Chipmunk, Pro Green & Example)
Number 10...oh, my god. Probably the best thing I've heard in a while. It makes me weirdly proud of the UK music scene, even though it only shows a very limited part of it. But the fact that these artists (who about a year or so ago were nobodies, especially people like Devlin and to a certain extent Giggs and Pro Green) can come together and make something as completely phenomenal as this is...amazing. It blows me away.

The MOBO Awards performance of number 10 is on the link above - Listen!!

First Outfit Post!

Finally, I got my camera up and running again and decided to go for an outfit post. I went to the V&A to do some research for my artwork, which is lovely because I think the V&A is amazing, and I managed to find exactly what I needed. Out of all the London Museums, it definitely has the most personality - probably the most eccentrically British museum I know.
Trousers - Zara
Tee Shirt - Topshop
Cardigan - H&M
Blazer - F&F at Tesco
Scarf - John Rocha at Debenhams
Watch & Bracelets - Vintage

I know its not the best put together outfit ever, but I really love the trousers and want to find as many different ways of wearing them as possible. My discovery today is that they only really go with flats, bummer.

The Five Things You Need Right Now, 26/10/10

Basically, its absolutely freezing right now. I'm sitting writing this post with a coat, two pairs of socks and scarf on, but my fingers are still so cold that I'm hitting the wrong key occasionally, so apologies for any inexcusable spelling mistakes. Taking this into account however, I thought I'd theme this post with what I need to keep warm and look half decent at the same time; its basically my winter wish list, cut short to five items.

Sheepskin Detail Swing Duffle Coat
Sheepskin Detail Swing Duffle Coat, £150, Topshop
This just looks so so so warm. I've been looking at all the structured coats and capes that have been floating about recently, but this just grabs my attention a little bit more, maybe because to a certain extent its anti everything thats around right now. Its knee length, and seems to have a lovely cocooning effect, and the sheepskin at the top is just the right amount of fur. Lovelyyyy.
Cable Thigh High Socks By Unique**
Thigh High Cable Knit Socks, £25, Unique at Topshop
A double whammy for Topshop today, but mainly because I couldn't really find what I was looking for elsewhere. I was trying to find something similar to the socks that were all over the RTW Fall 2010 Prada collection ( and these are the closest/most affordable match. Besides, they do look pretty toasty.

Printed Leggings, £45, Holly Fulton for ASOS
I can't really explain my choice here, other than I love them. With a big, baggy jumper they would be completely lovely, and the fact that they're a bit out there doesn't hurt either. Plus the colours fit with the whole icy/snow winter theme.
Plum Velvet Shift Dress
Plum Velvet Shift Dress, £45, Miss Selfridge
This dress just evokes Christmas. The colour, the yellowy lace details, the heaviness of the fabric... I read an article in last month's NYLON magazine about velvet, and its huge return back to mainstream fashion and for the record I love it. I imagine that after a few wears it will begin to soak in a whole personality of its own, a quality very few fabrics can do, but very typical of velvet.
Treats by Sleigh Bells, £4.99 Amazon.
Not exactly a winter warmer of a record, but amazing nonetheless, and I'm totally into it right now. Its quite get-up-and-go, and in certain tracks the guitar and vocals clash quite incredibly, but its an invigorating listen that makes you appreciate artists who do something slightly different with their music.

So I know I haven't posted in over a week, and I can only apologise for that. Schools been pretty crazy, and there simply hasn't been enough time to write an entry! And while we're on the subject of apologies, I was going to do an outfit post today, but my camera has run out of batteries. Everything is just going oh so well at the moment.  But its okay, because I have a fair amount to say now :) And its now half term, so I can spend as long as I like making my blog look more beautiful and lovely and interesting.

Anyway. I was going through a book on Fashion Illusration, and found what I think is possibly my favourite illustrator ever. I've always found fashion illustration interesting, because as photography has kind of taken over in that industry, and I feel that it can represent the clothes in an entirely different way. Drawings can convey character in an entirely seperate manner to photos.

They're by an artist called Laura Laine, and are pretty lovely. I prefer the second of the two, the smaller, skinnier figure, because it exudes so much attitude. Its pictures like these which show why illustration of fashion, not simply photographs of lifeless clothes are so important.
