These boots are made for walking...

Eeek! I got the boots that I've been admiring for a while! I went into town with my mum to get some stuff for my shirt etc. and thought I may as well pop into River Island, since I had those vouchers left over from Christmas, and there they were! One pair left, and this usually is something stupid like a size 3, but they were a 6! I'm walking them in over the next couple of days to make sure that they are okay, but I love them! I just thought I'd show you my new baby's!

My Fashionably boring day....

I've had a fairly boring day sadly, I spent last night up again, because I couldn't sleep, my school would love it since all my work will be in on time at this rate. I started the dress... it's not going well, it's a McCalls pattern, and looks lovely and is going well, only I've to match the check up, and it's just a very fiddly pattern! However! I will be making this jacket next, and I'm so excited! These patterns were my mothers, since she used to make herself clothes as well, but these 4 I love, and I really want to make the YSL and Ralph Lauren jackets, but in really fun patterns or something!
I've also got these shirts to use to design with, I think I'm going to use the one with the black strip down the front and the black cuffs, but I love these Shirts! I'm going to obviously do my design on the front, and I'm going to change a couple of the buttons to coloured ones I think. The shirt is top secret for now as well as the dress! On the days of the Interviews I'm going to do it so my blog will post pictures then! Keep it a little bit exciting for you as well!  

Today I've been to Waitrose and not done much else, but here's what I wore, I wore a black jumper from Riverisland, that I got for Christmas, I think the Squirrel is ever so cute and the jumpers actually really nice! I've brought so much stuff from RiverIsland, I'm waiting on 2 hats and a Dress, but I think the dress might go back, I'm not sure yet! Need to stop being an Impulse buyer! The jacket is also from RiverIsland, and my New Look jeans and Dorothy Perkins zip boots. There's also another picture I found on my Camera and I'm not sure if you've seen it before or not, but I thought you may aswell!

Sales!!! How I love thee!

Hope everyone had a lovely Christmas and got everything they wished for! I've still yet to do my Christmas Day page... oh deary but I thought I'd better not fall behind on my posts. Today it drizzled when we went to town, so we went and caught the train to Cambridge! I brought shoes and 2 tops for my interview! The shoes above are from New look for £12.00, although I'm taking them back, since I'd rather have some jeans, and the shoes were meant for school, and I think are a bit too high for school and just aren't as me as I thought.
 I also brought a beautiful classic white shirt from Topshop for £8!!! I was so excited I rang my mother... I also got the brown top to wear on lazy days to chuck on with some jeans and a long necklace or something like that.

I've also brought a lovely dress and top from H&M! I thought the dress was just a little bit sassy with the red top part, and I'd liked it previously and it was only £10! instead of £25.00, so I thought that was a bargain, and the little pinky top was only £4.99! I do love H&M, I don't know where I'd be without them!
I also brought a summery dressing gown from Debenhams, I've seen a couple like it in classic films and the ladies always look so beautiful! Plus it was on sale so for £12.00 it was worth it plus 20% off for my staff discount! It's a lovely silk, and feels lovely on, but I thought since it was summery it was better to get one now rather than when they are all £30.00. I did buy the matching nightdress, but it looks awful on so I'm going to take it back and see if I can't find something that actually fits well!
I didn't really buy that much else, but it weighed a ton lugging it around, but was very worth it! I'll make a Christmas post today as well for you! What was your favourite Christmas present you got?

Merry Christmas!

MERRY CHRISTMAS! I hope you all got what you wanted! And that your looking forward to the new year, as much as I am!
Every year, I decide on 5 things that I want to complete, so that I can finish the year with minimum 5 things finished, so here are mine.
1) To have finished my Skirt that I started for my night course
2) Have gotten photo's for my art book of dresses.
3) Finish my Technology unit for Business Studies
4)To have completed my history homework (never going to happen!)
5) To find an outfit for my interview (probably never will find one!) 

I hope everyone has a really good Christmas, and that you have a good boxing day etc. in case I don't pop on to say so!

And on the Twelfth day of Christmas...

And on the Twelfth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me, love. This entire year, I've been gotten through by my wonderful boyfriend, who has put up with my tantrums, and my being so stressed out and has been so supportive, and still managed to surprise me. So for the 12th day, that's what I want everyone to have, love. Have a good christmas! xoxo

On the Eleventh day of Christmas....

This bag from Joules, is decidedly fun! I adore it! I'm very much a bag fetishist? I've just made that word up but I don't care, that's just the power of the bag! Who wouldn't notice this beautiful bag!? It's such a summer bag! I find it completely irresistible, I dislike bags made of fabric cause you can't take them to the beach without them looking dirty after I find, and I dislike washing bags, it's silly I think. This bag however is ideal, it's a beautiful color, in a sturdy enough fabric, that even in Autumn when it's that difficult cross over period, where you don't want to let go of all those bright happy items, you can keep this bag and team it with those autumn purples and reds!

On the Tenth Day of Christmas...

I love this jacket by Hobbs of London, I saw a girl recently with one of these on, with grey leggings and green traditional wellies, and she just looked rather chic, I was a little jealous since one of these would make me look like a farmer instead, but I think if you're tall and slim these look great on! Sort of an effortless country estate chic!

On the Ninth day of Christmas...

I love this advert... I love her enthusiasm, and just what she says and how she walks and everything, I also love the Dior building.
Anyway on the Ninth day of Christmas, I wanted the trousers to the 3rd outfit from the left, I love the navy trousers, especially with the cool floaty top. Diors new collection is quite bright and a little retro I think, very nice! I just wish I had longer legs! The shoes were also amazing in this shoe! And I'm in no way biased to Dior....

On the Eighth day of Christmas...

I so want these! Who doesn't love a red pair of heels?! These ones are from Christian Louboutin's summer 2011 collection called "devalavi", put the word "devil" in there and you so have what these shoes are! They are made to kill! I love the color and everything about these, especially that heel. I can't imagine an occasion when these wouldn't be perfect!

On the Seventh Day Of Christmas....

Apart from wanting Blake Lively's body, I really wanted this dress by Jenny Packham, even if it is from her 2010 Fall collection! it's got an open back and a central slit on it, plus the print and contrasting marine blue stones!? Something she dreamt up! Plus this dress was so made for Serena's little take down! She always wears the nicest dresses when she's out to get someone!

On the Sixth day of Christmas....

On the Sixth day of Christmas....

I would of killed for this! A Lanvin Spring/Summer 2011 multi-colored crystal metal clutch bag! I love everything about it! It's such a classical feminine shape but I think the crystals and metal frame give it a lovely contrasting harsher looked. I want oneee!

On the Fifth day of Christmas....

I Love these bags, I don't mean this particular only one, though this is one of my favorites I've seen so far. But satchels, I just suddenly love, despite having hated them during primary school, perhaps cause it was a red colour with a big yellow logo on it for the school... But I think they are so sophisticated and practical, but almost fun in a way that you expect some people to have them and not others i.e. business people... I just love them! This one is from Topshop for £50.00

On the Fourth day of Christmas...

On the Fourth day of Christmas, I really wanted a pair of Aldo Bregon 4 Buttoned heel shoe boots! I like these because I think it makes a pleasant change from the usual black or brown boots that we see lots of! 

Wednesday, 15 December 2010

On the Third day of Christmas...

I absolutely love these bags! I think they are so different and unique! I'm dying for them to go in the sale so that I can get a couple! I think they would really make a simple outfit really stand out, it's just a really pleasant change to the normal clutch bags that you get. Definitely something for a Clutch bag collector like me to get!

On the second day of Christmas...

On the second day of Christmas, a Miu Miu coat! (the one on the left) I love ittt! it looks so warm! I always love Miu Miu's looks! they are so clean and fresh! Something I absolutely adore! There shoes are brilliant too! I'm definitely going to be keeping my eyes out this/next year for any pieces that I can afford!

On the First day of christmas...

On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me, a wooden coat stand, to hang my necklaces and shoes from! Brilliant idea or what? I love the thought of an old wooden coat stand in a lovely chic apartment, with just necklaces and shoes and coats thrown on, and ready to grab to go out. My insanity does avail, but when I go to uni I definitely want my own flat with a coat stand in please Santa!

12 days of Fashion Christmas...

Remember the 12 days of Christmas? That song with the maids, and jumping lords etc. I was a milking maid in that, a very good one till i fell off my 3 legged chair, wouldn't of been so bad, but people could see through the imaginary cow...Nvm I was only 7.
Anyway, I've decided to do a 12 days of Fashion Christmas, pretty much 12 items I would LOVE! Santa to bring, and in return I thought you could post what you would like Santa to bring you! 
This will start on the 13th, right up until the 25th! Providing my maths is correct, which it might not be. So twitter about this as much as you can, and perhaps a little bit of re-blogging? I think the more people we get to do this the better!

Leaps and bounds...

Come on leaps and bounds this week, I got some new trousers, which I've worn all week practically! and I finally sorted out my Re-sit and my Interview which clashed. I also have the new Vogue! Eeek! and I brought Company and realised it was rather rubbish and won't be buying it again.
I've also found my pattern and design! I'm wondering about putting sleeves on it? I also want to put on the top half little gold studs on it, like the ones on my bracelet, and lots of chains! I'm getting really excited and can't wait to start it over the Christmas holiday or sooner! 
My drawings really come on though so I am a very happy person with that! I sorted out my Tax finally and will be getting it back! which is lovely! I also get paid next week so I'm quite excited about that. Oh, and I also finished one of my business coursework bulks, which was pleasant! loads of stress off my shoulders now.I have done lots of work on my portfolio, and it looks pretty good so far! I need to do more experimentation with it though, but it's going good at the moment so I'm quite impressed, I might just do some art work this afternoon for the day instead of going to History, since then my art teacher can see my portfolio and can advise a little which would be good.

I've seen lots of photo's this season of people in Wedge boots... I didn't like them... I got a pair.... I will be buying many pairs very soon! They've a habit of looking extremely high!... Something I like, but they all seemed stupidly high, until I put a pair on.. Due to the wedge... not so high after all! I will become a sky scraper one day!
I love these because of the colour and the studs, the end. and for £35 not bad! I also like that the toe is covered as with many they are peep toes, great if you like peep toes... not so good if you really don't. I fall under the latter sadly. Taupe Studded Wedge Boots

I quite like these as well as they are fairly simple, still £35 and still from Boohoo.com. They were also made of Suedette which when you only wear black providing you've lots of different types of material, they look rather amazing, but I do just think they'd go well with anything, skirts, jeans, etc!
For a bit more of a party style I quite like that New look did the one above in some other colours, a paler taupe and a cranberry red sort of coloured, they also did a closed toe version that wasn't as high, which is good for when you're on the go, but also gave you a better choice of colours and was still in a suedette style.
I think these ones are really cute and would go great with jeans or jeggings! They're a little bit more pricey at £65.00 from Asos, but they aren't £300 so it's a lot better I believe. I think people should pay for quality shoes... but not extortionate amounts, especially when you're a student....

Lots of work Done!

I need to learn to think of more interesting titles...
I've managed to do lot's of work thank goodness and here is the picture of my Design page so far for my interview at Falmouth. Please Excuse the weird colouring, the picture was taken in bad light, so I had to play with the contrast and that and this was the best I could get it. I've still not got a sample of the material that inspired me, but it was sort of a yellow and grey lumberjack style check, which I want to make into a feminine dress since the actual material I find the pattern to be a little masculine as is the idea of a lumberjack. I then wanted to add some punk rock chains as shown in the very top right, or some little antique gold studs just in the top section or some little grey sort of jewels as shown on the left. sort of Feminine Vs. Masculine, and a Rock sort of edge Vs. Glamour. I also concidered putting a grey lace over the skirt, but I think that would be far too feminine and ruin it a little, but I've yet to experiment. I also concidered de-constructing it a little, and using grey tulle underneath the skirt to give it some volume but to also leave some to stick out the bottom of the dress, like Alexander Mcqueen did on this yellow dress, since I really like the volume, and I think it looks, how it is swaying quite feminine, but I haven't decided yet. I'm definitely really fired up about this Project and have been finding idea's are coming to me far easier than what they were before. I also want to have it done by Christmas so that I can do some styling with the dress, to show the interviewers that the dress can be worn in lots of different ways, which will be great fun I think.
I also designed another dress yesterday but haven't really had a chance to finish it, so I might do that over the weekend but here it is so far. It's long and I want it to be quite floaty but slender, and I've taken out the back section and a section just over the collarbone, since I wanted something that wasn't very revealing but very subtly oozed sex appeal, so I took away the normal show of legs and cleavage and found a new part to show off, plus backs and collarbones tend to look quite slender. I really want to make this dress, but I think I'm going to need to have a long hard think about it and do it after January since I think it would be quite a task, a good one... but perhaps a little difficult for my skills as yet. I was hoping to do it in a dark red wine sort of color, but I may change it and use very floaty fabrics that are slightly see through maybe, and do it as a summer dress, with some pretty patterned light fabric... not decided yet.

Here's what I've been wearing lately, or that sort of thing... clearly I've not lived in the same outfit! So here are my new boots as well! The photo's don't want to go where I want them to so excuse the new layout...  It's also been snowing here as well! Admittedly in this picture it's more ice than snow... but there was lots of snow! That's all for now! (: xoxo

Gossip Girl! Pattern! and Designed Dress!

Excited! Going to town Friday to get some fabric for the dress and a pattern! I want to make a mock up one as well as the real one, and then I'm moving on to the shirt, though I can't find the style of shirt I want to begin with which is causing a small issue. But I started the drawing and little alterations and things like that.
I've also just watched Gossip Girl! Eek! I don't quite understand what happens at the very end between Chuck and Blair in the limousine though somehow I've not quite got that. But I think they are friends, and I think the pumpkin pie was meant to show that he was the foundations and she was the rest sort of thing... not quite following. mean while hating Juliette, I adored her black dress at the end! The dress was from Cut 25 by Yigal AzrouĆ«l, and I thought was very hot! Especially with the back revealed a little! I love dresses like that! I did, while trying to find the designer of the dress, come across a similair one by Urban Outfitters, least that's where the link took me but I couldn't find the dress on the website, they had it down as " Silence & Noise Ponte Cutout Back Dress" Incase anybody wants to try and find the dress! It was under $30.00 I believe, so roughly £25.00 I think in GBP.

However I loved Blair's dress! And who else is psyched for the Blair & Dan Take Down!? It's been a while since we've seen anything like that! And Blair do something to make Chuck stop being stupid! It breaks my little gold heart!  The dress was from Barney's in New York. I actually really loved this, especially with her Yellow Louis Vuitton Bag! I also always like her hair, she's more me than Serena but Serena does ooze quite a bit of sex appeal which is why I do love the girl! Although really... The Juliette thing, it's bugging me! And again? In a hospital? Little repetitive?

I also drew yesterday a beautiful backless dress, for some reason I thought of it while I was on the WiiFit, but I plan to paint it etc. before letting you see the page! But I really was quite impressed by myself! I think a red sort of colour, a royal red or something like that, Autumny but sophisticated, but not black... or maybe black... maybe multi-coloured! I've not quite decided yet.
