Check



I was on my way to pick up a suitcase I'd been spying for a while, as I found an excuse in the form of a trip to Sunderland to see my friend Claire's exhibition, and realised how pretty all the blossom was so took a picture, then took a photo of my feet...

The checky thing is a nightie I found in a charity shop and then hemmed and altered to make it un-nightieish. It's all cute, I feel like wearing it with white tights and red mary janes. It's got nice, crocheted cuffs and collar to make it even cuter.



I wish summer would hurry up and get here. I think my boyfriend wants attention, he playing a harmonica and rolling around. Silly boy.

Old Man Glasses HXC



I got new glasses. Too bad I have a silly face to put them on.

Lick my Legs





I like raunchy French t shirts. I want one, though I don't think i'm any where near edgy enough to pull it off...
Here's a link to Lick my Legs for more scary erotica on t shirts. It's too bad the £/Euro conversion rate is so bad at the moment otherwise one would be on its way to me right now.

I get to pick up my old man glasses tomorrow, I finally decided I should get some back up glasses in case I run out of contacts or lose them etc so I've chosen some massive old man ones. Silly thing is, my friend Claire got the same ones on the day I chose mine, good job she lives in Sunderland.

The Cut

Censors have banned 'The Cut', an anti domestic abuse advert created by the director of Atonement, Joe Wright, from being shown on TV until the violent, kicking scenes have been removed. I think this advert is very effective, i'm not a massive fan of Keira Knightley but I can see why she's been chosen for this part, it captivates the audience and has major shock value. I don't see the problem with portraying an abusive relationship onscreen when it happens in reality and similar violence is shown in films. For more information about the short film and how to donate to 'Women's Aid' click here.

First Lady

I know how much attention Michelle Obama has been receiving within the fashion industry recently, as she does seem to have impeccable taste. However, i love this picture far more than any of the fashion shots. It makes me happy.

Ebay

I've had a little clearout today and put some things on my Ebay. Have a gander!

In a bubble

I've just read the Ponystep interview with Susie Bubble and instantly regretted turning down the chance to interview her a year or so ago just because my PR teacher wouldn't let me do it for a project, I should have just done it anyway. It's a lovely, in depth interview that reveals Susie's thoughts on fashion in a way I've never read in any of her other media coverage.

Susie Bubble has been my inspiration and aspiration since she started blogging in 2006. I read her blog every day and respect her fashion choices, however barmy they may seem, as I too would love to see fashion become more objective and less criticised in the glossies such as Grazia.

I have just got in from a night out so this post may be a little vodka fueled and gushy but it's still true. Also on said night out I found the perfect library chair for my future library, it's not the one pictured below but it's similar. I can imagine myself sitting there with a nice book and a massive dog at my feet.



I did a little charity shopping today on my way to get food for tonight's barbecue and brownies, I got a paisley shirt, a white, pleated old lady shirt and a brown, leather belt. I shall put some pictures up at some point as I never do. Anyway, enough of my inane ramblings, goodnight.

Necklush

I want one of these.



They're $65 on Necklush's Etsy. Maybe not the best thing for summer but still... I may try my hand at a DIY one but I'd rather support designers. We'll see how the monetary situation is after a month or so in London.

Easter

I've just returned home for Easter, with A LOT of bags of clothes, and am ready for at least a weeks' worth of fun. I'm off to the Monkey Forest tomorrow for my friend Fiona's birthday, I'm a little bit excited but I'm not the biggest fans of monkeys... It'll be fun even if it does mean that Jim's jealous of me for a while...
I'm having a lazy night tonight, drinking wine and watching films with my mother. A parcel was waiting for me with 'Like Water for Chocolate' in it so I may watch that later, I love that film. I shall also be listening to my boyfriend and our friends Clare and Russ's Radio show on Chorley FM tonight. They have nice, special chats that few other people will understand.
This is a very ramble-y post... Ah well. We went for a little day trip to Windermere the other day, rented a motor boat and had a little adventure on the water so I thought I'd put some pictures in to add interest to a rambling post about nothing.

David David x Simple Shoes

It's nearing the time of handing in for our final project of year 2. It's been a very short project, we've only had two weeks from brief to hand in, so things have been a little rushed. I managed to squeeze in a photo shoot with my friend Henry though and have been editing the images, inserting my sneaker design into the images and creating all manner of promotional material to go with it.

The project was to make a collaboration between a designer (or other talented person) and a trainer company, I chose David David and Simple Shoes to fit in with A/W trends for geometric/80's style prints and eco friendly products. They are shoddily photoshopped but they are just to give the idea of the shoe, too many other things to do to make them look amazing!

Here are a few images with the shoes in.

Tax discs

I was doing some research on David David for a uni project (more on that later...) and came across these delightful tax disc holders called Pretty Taxing. They are exclusively commissioned tax discs, only 500 of each line are made so they are really quite something. Each one comes with a certificate of authenticity and it's signed by the artist. The fashion collection are changed often to keep up with trends and are £15, I want one but my car's broken, saaaaaadness.



Green Knickers - Natasha Law



Beautiful Impact - Boudicca (love these)



Bling Splat - Stuart Semple



One where all sides and angles are equal - David David

They are available here go go go!
