I wish I was

Rumi - the creator of the blog fashiontoast. Her blog is top of my favourites list, I could read it all day. I wish I had clothes like her! She is one of my new style icons.

your funny face

We watched Funny Face in our fashion history class today. Audrey Hepburn is so beautiful! What I wouldn't do to look like her...
I have an exam on Wednesday - eek - not looking forward to it. It's for our contextual studies module which is about the history behind cultural changes and how fashions came about. It's actaully quite interesting but I'm not so excited about having to write about it for 1.5 hours. But one bonus is that I am going to have Tuesdays off every week now. Yayy.

After discovering how to create these sets I now have a bit of an obsession for it - expect more of these to come. I love the dress above, I wish I could afford it.

all things pretty

Hit London again today, but this time to shop. Student loan forgotten again for another day. However I did steer clear of Topshop and Urban Outfitters instead going a bit cheaper with H&M and Primarni. One blouse, pair of leggings, faux fur scarf and wooly jumper later I was one happy girl.

l.o.v.e love

For our magazine project we were sent into London yesterday. We went to Selfridges- what a beautiful place. I picked up Love magazine because I have never read it before and I am falling in love with it. May have to keep on buying them.
We also went to the Mick Jagger exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery. Basically a room with lots of photographs of Mick Jagger. Wasn't too impressed but I guess if you are a big fan of his you would find it very interesting. The Museum of Everything exhibition was in Selfridges and we had a look round that. From what we could see on the information the drawings etc were created by people with learning difficulties and disabilites. It was amazing to see what they were still able to create despite their difficulties.

princess jewellery

I was watching Made in Chelsea and I have fallen in love with Caggy's jewellery. Her rings all have chain that link to her wrist, reminding me of an Indian bride's accessories. The rings fit in with Caggie's cool and quirky style. Couldn't get any images of the one she was wearing but found a few beautiful ones, as shown below. May have to invest in some of these.

 The Bliss Lau Chrysler Bracklet

Seeing the rings made me think also of the chain headbands that have been appearing now and again in various fashion shoots and on celebrities' heads (as shown on Nicole Richie and Vanessa Hudgens below.) I know it is a trend that has been around for a while and I have always worried that I wouldn't be able to pull it off but I might have to be brave and try one of these as well.

going koko for Annie Mac

On Saturday we went to Camden town's Koko club to see Annie Mac. When we arrvied Ms. Dynamite was on stage which was a very nice surprise.
Annie was amazing to say the least. And wearing an acid pink skirt and sequined top she stood out from the crowd in more ways than one.

flower power

p.s I have fallen in love with this. It smells amazing.

baby it's cold outside

After the burst of strange Autumn sun, the wind is now blowing and it's getting cold. Winter isn't far away. Below are some must-have pieces for Autumn. Fur jackets, long skirts and beautiful boots - all topped off with a dark lip.

autumn sun

It's October already! The weather could not decide what it wanted to do at the weekend, it was so hot ! Had to get skirts and vests out again which was a bit confusing. But I love the sun so I can't complain.
This week has been a busy one - getting a lot more work being assigned to us. A lot of deadlines! With journalism the most important thing is deadlines so better stick to them. Went home at the weekend as well which was nice. Wierd though after getting used to London - the rest of England seems so small now in comparison.
We also recently started shorthand. Dear Lord. They say that as a journalist applying for a job having shorthand on your CV is really good. But it's so bloody hard I don't think I'll even pass! 40 words a minute writing loads of symbols ? Definatly lost in translation with that one.
Today the editor of Vice magazine came to talk to us at uni. He was so lovely. He seems to have done some amazing things as well and having done economics at uni just stumbled upon a career in fashion. So jealous! Hopefully one day that will happen for me too.
