Paris couture:My favourites from Alaia.

9 Jul

I’m in absolute love with these two Alaia dresses shown at the couture show in Paris ! I love the diamond pattern of these two dresses. Also the fact that it’s knitted! The craftsmanship is amazing. Real couture pieces.  Real statement dresses. I can imagine them being worn on the red carpet with accessories kept to a minimum and hair in a nice high bun with Charlotte Olympia Dolly or Dolores heels. Such a red carpet outfit. A great return after eight years of being absent from the catwalk!

Beyonce in Mark Fast

1 Jul

I absolutely LOVE this Mark Fast dress Bey is rocking at the Good morning America concert! The colour compliments her skin so well. So glad she’s wearing his designs as he’s a favourite of Nicki Minaj who we all know I love!

Versace X H&M

I’m beyond excited for the Versace X H&M collaboration. Especially after watching this video! The fact that iconic Versace pieces will be recreated to be more affordable is just way too much to deal with! I can see the queues on Oxford street already!

Orange nails: Essie Bright tights

20 Jun

 

 

 

 

On Saturday I got my nails done by this lovely woman in Westfield aka my second home, for free! They were doing free manicures and massages! At first I chose quite a ‘safe’ coral colour but then the beautician suggested I go with the Essie ‘ Bright tights’ and I thought why not! I actually love them! Not for the faint hearted though.  A real stand out colour.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Burberry Prorsum Men S/S 12

19 Jun

I love the theme for the mens Burberry Prorsum S/S 12. Very different to what we’re used to seeing from Mr Bailey. This collection features Aztec like prints that could be reminiscent of the 70’s. Has that type of ‘hippie nonchalant’ feel to it. This collection feels very rustic, the total opposite to the expected ‘shiny’ looks. Don’t you just love the hats and the mocassin inspired shoes?!

Scones: My first attempt!

15 Jun

My second favourite thing to do is bake. I love all things to do with baking, I’ve had to restrain myself from buying the whole baking aisle in ASDA. No joke. Over the past few days I’ve been having the biggest craving for scones. So instead of buying them I thought why not bake some! Ok, I’ not going to lie, I did use a ready-made batter but I did add milk! Anyways, I hope you like the pictures and trust me they taste amazing! Especially with butter (  alternative to clotted cream) and jam. Enjoy! Nothing like fashion & food!

I love this PVC coat as well. We’ve been seeing a lot of PVC inspired pieces this A/W. Such a refreshing and alternative twist to the classic trench.

Graduate fashion week: pt2 UCL fashion show

10 Jun

As I promised here are the pictures from the GFW : UCL show! I’ve included my favourite looks from the show. The atmosphere was electric! There’s nothing I love more than being surrounded by fellow fashion lovers. Each graduate had music that complimented their collection and it really did vary! I was so grateful that I was sitting frow ( fashion word for front row) as having such a good seat enabled me to take clear pictures (without people’s heads getting in the way!) The collections were a real mix. From collections featuring pure whites,creams & beige to collections with fluro and botanical themes. Crop knit wear was heavily used in many of the collections along with maxi skirts and ruffles. It was truly and eclectic mix!

Post rewind: Cupcakes+Last summer

9 Jun

* One of my favourite things to do is bake. I’ll try and bake anything! Now that I have some more spare time on my hands I’m going to get back into it. Check out my cupcakes from last summer. Nothing goes with fashion like food!

I had that summer feeling today and it took me right back to last summer when I made ( yes I did make them!) these cupcakes.I was so proud of myself I went through a baking phase and baked at every moment I could.! I really should get back into baking asap.Nothing goes better with fashion than food!

Graduate fashion week pt1: The exhibition

8 Jun

As I previously mentioned I attended GFW on Sunday for the first time and it wa an amazing experience. I loved seeing the universities individual stands. Each represented their personality and you got a message from each of their stands. I fell in love with so many of the pieces especially the tan satchel! I’ll p[ost the fashion show pictures tomorrow!

Graduate fashion week!

6 Jun

Yesterday I attending GFW at Earls court and it was buzzing! Being surrounded by so many fashionable people gives me this indescribable feeling! So much fierceness. I took so many pictures of the graduates collections and the exhibition stalls. I also got to watch the UCL show and I was sitting ‘FROW’! I was kind of shocked! I got the most amazing pictures from having such a good seat. I shall upload them tomorrow after my last exam!

BFW launch party.

On Tuesday night I was fortunate enoguh to have been invited to the Brighton fashion week launch party! It was such an amazing experience! Here are some pictures before my camera went and died! 

Ear cuffs.

3 Jun

As I was browsing Asos, looking at things I can’t afford, I came across ‘ear cuffs’ and instantly fell in love. I love the fact that you don’t have to bear the pain of another piercing to achieve a new look. They look so quirky but intriguing at the same time. If you saw someone wearing one you’d think what’s that kind of thing! The one below is the one that I really want. With a side parting in my hair to show it off! *adds to my ‘to-buy list’.
