S/S14 London Fashion week

Hey everyone! The fashion world is going into overdrive at the moment, I thought I'd join the buzz by sharing some of my favourites from SS14 shows.

Antipodium's collection definitely caught my eye, its just the right mixture between cheeky and sophisticated. The dress on the left is so unusual, yet relatable : little mermaid, meets punk, meets schoolgirl- love it!

Sister by sibling made its mark with netting, netting and more netting. Skirts, tops all of the partially see through variety. The skirt above makes you sit up and pay attention, the sort of ' I wouldn't wear it but love to look at it' piece!

House of Holland's dreamy collection is full of beautiful prints and beautiful fabrics. The baseball cap adds an urban feel and contrasts gorgeously with the feminine dress.

What do you think?

Days out...

Hey everyone! So, on Tuesday I went to London with my Dad and my sister. We decided to travel using Boris bikes, and go to Borough market. After this we went to Leicester square and got tickets for a musical that night. Once we got to Leicester square we were greeted by a mass of barriers and angry looking policemen saying 'you cant stop here'. Scary security, screaming girls: could only mean one thing... One Direction. The 'This is us' premiere definitely caused some hype, seeing Harry Styles face on a massive screen brightened my day anyway! I still cant believe I was just metres away from an indecent amount of Simon Cowells chest hair! Last week me and my family went out to celebrate my sisters results: here is a photo of us: I'm wearing my favourite jewellery, a vintage leather watch and blue oblong ring from Topshop. What do you think?

Hey everyone! I suppose the saying 'all good things must come to an end' doesn't exclude British weather. For the past few days dark skies have overcome the pleasant weeks of sunshine and warmth. But what else can you expect from a good all British summer? So, a few months ago while watching made in Chelsea, I spotted the perfect winter coat. I searched online for it but couldn't find out what brand it was. Then last week I stumbled across it, you can imagine my excitement! However the excitement quickly evaporated when I realised that these coats were sold out everywhere! I'm eagerly awaiting more coming into stock. If this doesn't happen I'll be trawling through ebay for a look alike! Here is a photo of the coat (Bellfield padded jacket in lollipop red) worn by Phoebe lettice: Love it!

Hey everyone! I absolutely love the new kimono trend and after looking all over for one that I really liked I found this gorgeous one from Topshop.

What I love about kimonos is their effortless versatility, by choosing one in a darker colour or mixing it up with clumpy boots they can go from pretty to grunge! What do you think?

A year on...

Hey everyone! I cannot believe it's been over a year since I started my blog! Its been quite a stressful year for me what with school which equals exams which equals endless studying! I also entered into the world of work a few months ago, the phrase 'like a lamb to the slaughter' comes to mind when I think of my first day, needless to say I quit that job and am in the process of finding another one. Its the holidays again, I'm currently a week in and loving the long lie ins and lazy afternoons reading Jilly Cooper in the sun. I am absolutely determined to do lots of posts this summer, so watch this space!

Short hair...

Hey everyone! I know its been a while since my last post, but school work has had me completely over occupied! Not to mention the struggle of my first job and overcoming a nasty manager. Anyway, amongst all of this, I have still had time to watch my favourite trashy TV shows: TOWIE and Made in Chelsea. While watching the drama unfold, I was also watching Phoebe Lettice Thompson's and Lucy Mecklenburghs hair. Although everyone always told me how lovely my long hair was (nearly waist length) , I decided to bite the bullet and cut it off! I know have shoulder length hair and its safe to say that I absolutely love it! Below are some pictures of Phoebe and Lucy's hair, mineis now a mixture of theirs. What do you think?

Hey everyone! I hate getting home from a holiday, for the first few days its all 'home sweet home', but then you begin to miss the sun and sea. I find myself sitting in school, wishing I was back in Barbados on the beach! Especially now that mock exams have started and with them a whole lot of stress. On Friday I had four hours worth of exams, its safe to say that when I got home I was completely exhausted! Here are some holiday photos, I hope you like them!

Summer hurry up!

Hey everyone! Yesterday I went on a little excursion to Westfields with my friends, it was the first time any of us had been to London on our own, but we survived! Even after a stressful few seconds when we thought we were going to miss the train and had to sprint down the platform. I think it's a right of passage that whenever you go to Westfields you see someone famous. We bumped into a cheeky bit of Jack and Finn (you tube vloggers) and have since received many a jealous comment from people we have told.  I'm feeling really fed up of Britain's seriously bi-polar weather. The snow today made me feel like listening to Christmas songs and watching Love Actually! A recent love of mine is 1950's style high waisted bikinis, I got one from Topshop for my birthday, i think it's so cute! I'm off on holiday tomorrow, so can't wait to wear it on the beach. What do you think?

'I'ma take your grandpa's style'

Hi all! Last weekend, I went on a little trip to London, where was I headed? The dusty, musty, vintage shops of Brick Lane- favourtie of Harry Styles and other celebrities as well as budding fashionista's. Although I do most of my shopping in highstreet shops: my absolute favourite is TopShop, once in a while I like to break free from this generic idea of 'fashion'. I love knowing that I will never see anyone else wearing what I've bought, which makes it completely unique to me. I think thats more what fashion should be about: rather than everyone looking the same. There is something so fulfilling about finding a quirky top or jumper for under a third of the price you would pay in highstreet shops. Lots of people wouldn't even look at the clothes because they hate the fact that they look old, but that doesn't bother me at all. Its not only the shops that I love though: Brick Lane itself is so diverse, the clash of cultures is overwhelming. Not to mention the food stalls are so yummy! On this excursion, I bought some vintage Levi Jeans and a netted American football top. (expect photo's of these in a post soon). Do you like 'thrift shops'?

Hey guys! If you read my last post you'll probably know that I recently got my cartilage pierced. To be honest, it was definitely an impulse action, its my first piercing, I haven't even got my lobes done. I wanted my tragus done, but I chickened out after finding out it was the most painful piercing. I will admit, I was sooo nervous and needed my sister to hold my hand, but it wasn't too painful. My inspiration was this vogue article:

It made me realise that piercings can be elegant as well as edgy. After eight weeks I'll be able to change the plain one I'm wearing, to one more interesting.I also love nose piercings, i think they're so different.  What do you think of piercings?

Hey everyone! I am so ashamed of my complete lack of posts! But two exams, a controlled assessment, three essays, a cartilage piercing, a gym membership, a Christmas and a lot of snow later, I'm back in the bloggingsphere! I'm not sure if you remember my velvet shorts post, but I decided to re-wear them to my friends birthday party, but with the army top this time. I hope you like it! I promise you will be seeing a lot more posts from me, my heaps of opinions still stand.
