Fashion Show Day



Fashion show day. I took these photos very late after a long day. The fashion show went brilliantly though, hopefully I will get some photos of it to show you. 
Top - Topshop, I made the sheer skirt, belt - Dorothy Perkins (£5!! Love) and earrings are from H&M. 
I had a complete saga with getting a shirt for this outfit, but in the end didn't get the one I wanted but I'm still pretty pleased with the overall effect of this outift. 
So big news today...(drum roll)....I finally took the plunge and bought wet look leggings. I'm still not sure how I feel about them but I will do a post sometime and let my faithful followers decide. Anyhoo, it is definitely time for bed!

Back to School




Oh hey hey. Today was a stressful, busy day at work. We have a really big fashion show tomorrow at the Scottish National Galleries - very excited. Today we were just getting the last bits ready for the show.
This outfit reminds me of a school uniform, I was looking for my head girl badge to wear with this but I couldn't find it. Shirt Dress - Soaked in Luxury, jumper (fluffiest in the world) - DVF, leggings - River Island and bangles - Accessorise.
Hope you've had a good Tuesday.

A tiny little bike!




I think it's only 2 weeks until I go back to uni. I payed the deposit on my flat today (3 weeks late) and enrolled into 2nd year last night. I'm finally getting my head round the idea of going back, but this also means that I have a summer project to do before returning. It is a truly dull and uninspiring project which I'm going to attempt tonight - wish me luck. 
Dress - Topshop, necklace - present from a friend and boots and socks - H&M.
Please leave your thoughts because I love reading them.

Fringe?




Today I thought that I wanted a fringe so I borrowed this wig to see what it would look like. I'm still undecided, let me know what you think.
I'm sick of all the rainy weather we're having here in Scotland, I keep having to take my photos indoors.
This dress is so old I forgot I had it, it's from Wearhouse and the bag is from Cambridge Satchels.

Wingapo



There was a competition at work today to win a piece of stock and I lost, even though I found a luck penny - gutted. So I spent the day at work and spending the evening watching x-factor and making a skirt. 
Today I was wearing a wrap from H&M, top - Topshop, jeans - J Brand, belt - River Island and bag - Spanish shop. Feeling very tribal today. Wingapo.

Sparkles


Sorry I didn't post yesterday, I had a busy day -shopping, museum and then out for Hazel's birthday. This is what I wore, a super sparkly and velvet leotard stolen from my friend Shauna, River Island shorts and new boots!! 
Today I went to see the new One Day film, I wasn't very impressed but that might have been a bit unenthusiastic because I was so hungover. I got in at half 7 this morning - oops.

A Very Good Day


This morning my boss came in and asked 'Do you know you are on Elle.com?' and I said 'No'. But the rumours were true, I am on Elle.com - http://www.elleuk.com/style/street-style/edinburgh-festival-2011. I am so very excited and can't wait for the magazine to come out so I can sign some autographs!! 
Another good thing which happened today was that it was payday so I am hitting the shops tomorrow with a huge smile on my face.
Cape - Oakwood, jeans - MiH, top - Next, boots and bag - H&M.

Oooh 80s



I love the print on the dress, I originally bought it for dressing up as the singer Tiffany. I feel so 80s when I wear it. I was at work again today. Remember that time I said I had London Fashion Week sorted? Well, I don't. I'm back to being stressed about the whole thing - I'll keep you updated. 
Ok so the outfit, cardi and dress - Topshop, belt - River Island and bow - H&M.

It's only Monday..



Another work outfit. I only have 2 weeks of work left and then it's back to the life of a student, I can't decide which I prefer. Although uni is a lot of fun and less work than actual work, I am really enjoying doing all my styling work, and working on photo shoots and fashion shows. However, when I get back to uni I'm starting a new course, Fashion Communication so hopefully it will be more interesting than first year!
So anyway - the outfit! Jacket and t-shirt- H&M, scarf - Alexander McQueen, skirt - Miss Selfridge and shoes - Urban Outfitters. I'm also wearing a belt but realise you cant see it in these photos (oops!)
Please leave your comments because I love reading them.

Half Post


Today I slept in by nearly an hour - so yes I'm half asleep in this photo. I knew I wouldn't have time after work to take a photo today so I'm actually in the middle of getting dressed here, I don't have my necklace, lipstick, glasses or jacket on yet. So, I guess it's really only half an outfit, sorry!
Anyway skirt and earrings - H&M, vintage shirt, belt - River Island and shoes - New Look.
Spent the day at work taking photos for our website which was fun. We got the coolest bag ever at work today, it's by DVF and it's a briefcase/satchel with a bit at the back for your iPad. I WANT IT! (I think I would need an iPad first though...)

ELLE



It has always been a dream of mine to be in Grazia on the style hunter pages. Today something even better happened. I got a phone call asking if I would like to be in ELLE for their street style section - my answer 'HELL YES'.
So 40 minutes later I met the journalist and the photographer in town, answered their questions and got my photo taken. Hopefully you will see my face in the next issue of ELLE!
This is what I wore for the shoot - top and belt - River Island, skirt - Zara, boots - H&M, socks and necklace - Dorothy Perkins, hat - ASOS and vintage scarf.


Cape cape cape cape


Heyloo.  This is my new cape, its by Oakwood and we are in love. I was wearing him with trousers earlier ( I promise I didn't go out like this) but they got soaked in the rain so took them off. I had a very busy day being out and about in the Edinburgh Festival, I saw a couple of street performers juggling a chainsaw and other crazy items, then went for an interesting noodle meal and finally a comedy show which was brilliant. It showed some of the best comedians at the festival and all the money from the tickets went to charity. 
I think I might have finally tracked down a way to getting to London Fashion Week which I'm really excited about, I will tell you more details when I have them.

One of my favourite dresses

       




Day off work! I got this dress when I was 13 and although it's a bit snug (I can't wear a bra with it), I love it and can't part with it. The dress is from French Connection and my shoes from Office. 
I haven't really done anything today except drink cups of tea, it's been amazing. However it has left me with a lack of things to say. 
Please leave your comments!

McQeen Tribute Show






The Alexander McQueen tribute show last night was amazing! It was in a building which was like a 1920's mental institution, it was very creepy. There were drawings of animal skulls all over the walls with ivy hanging on them. There was a single cellist playing music during the show, it was eerily quiet and you could hear every footstep the model's took. The model's hair and make-up made them look slightly crazy and they were half naked and barefoot for a lot of looks. The show ended with the models all standing around a balcony looking down at the audience, it was such a great tribute to McQueen and everything he stood for. 
Today I wanted to wear something really comfy, so I'm wearing a dress and cycling shorts- Topshop and a pair of converse. Cycling shorts are perhaps the best things ever, especially when inter-railing around Europe and sleeping on trains.

Friday Feeling



What a busy day at work! My brain is fried. Today I'm wearing jumper and t-shirt - H&M, leggings - River Island and necklace - Dorothy Perkins.
There is a lovely leather and sheepskin cape in at work, Oakwood, and I am in love with it! Although nobody else at work seems to like it so I'm not sure whether to get it. I'll let you know how it turns out.

Rain rain go away..



I'm sorry for not posting yesterday, although it was my day off I had a really busy day. I made my first ever successful cake yesterday for my dad's birthday! I was so proud of myself because I am usually terrible at baking.

Photo Shoot Day 2



I had such a busy day today so I didn't have time to take nice photos. I was working at the second half of the photo shoot from yesterday. We were shooting on the streets of Glasgow, which is really difficult for a number of reasons. It is really hard to get the lighting right especially since Scottish weather changes every second, people keep coming up to you and asking what you're doing and we couldn't dress the model on the street so had to keep running back to the studio. Despite all these difficulties, the shoot went really well and it was really interesting to work on. 
When I got home from the shoot I had to go babysitting so didn't have any time to take a photo and I'm looking a bit sleepy in the photo.
Today I'm wearing M Missoni top, skirt and belt - River Island and the bangles are from various places.
