The Duster Coat

Slowly but surely I've been building up my collection of coats and jackets. First was the car boot sale bomber jacket, then my amazing £10 fur coat and finally I have my duster coat. At an amazing £12 from a local charity this has definitely got to be one of my best wardrobe purchases.

Even though it was way too hot to wear it, I was determined show off my new coat. Keeping to a monochromatic theme, wearing a Breton striped top, black shorts (both from New Look) and Just fab trainers. 

What do you think of duster coats?

Le 21ème- Streetstyle

I ILe 21ème is one of my favourite websites to see street style from around the world and to get some awesome outfit inspiration. Showcasing images from cities such as London, Paris and New York, Le 21ème describes itself as a photojournalistic view into the world of fashion rather than simply a street style. Here are some of my photos that heave recently uploaded.

London Fashion Week

It has been ways to long since I've made a blog post but with the start of my final year at college and London Fashion Week, I've had absolutely no free time.
Since Thursday I've been volunteering as a dresser with Fashion Scout, an organization which showcases new design talent all around the world.
Working backstage at a show is extremely different to watching a show and you would not believe the amount of prep, panic and general craziness that goes on before and during the show. Even though it's quite an intense environment, the past few days have been such an incredible experience, and I've got loads of backstage pictures of the clothes, models and everything else that's been going on.

One of the shows that I managed to see was Nasir Mazhar. The collection was a wonderful mix of national tribal dressing, fetish wear and sportswear. The Nasir Mazhar girl is rebellious, sexy and ethnic.

Their shoes are gorgeous!

One of the best things about working at fashion week is that I got a ton of free make up :D

That's pretty much a summary of my past three days and as you can probably see it's been hectic. I'm exhausted, my feet hurt and I've barely had any sleep but it's also been the most amazing experience and I cannot wait till February for the next fashion week!

5 things to do before Summer Ends


Here in London we've pretty much had non stop rain for the past 3 days but I'm still hoping for just a few more days of sunshine before I officially say hello to winter. So here are 5 things I will certainly be doing if the sun ever decides to come out.

1. Have a picnic
The last time I had a picnic it was for my 7th birthday party and the theme was teddy bear picnic. All of my friends brought their favourite teddy bear and we all ate sandwiches and finger food in the park. Ever since I've desparately wanted to do it again but I'm not sure my friends would be so up for bringing a cuddly toy...

2. Go to the beach
Even though I've been to the beach twice this summer, I really want to go again. If you can't go out of the country then you absolutely MUST go to Brighton. Although it only has a pebble beach the water is lovely, there are amazing places to shop and the beach front scenery is beautiful!

3. Make ice lollies
When I was younger making ice lollies during summer was a ritual. I've had loads over the
past few weeks but nothing beats the feeling of creating your own flavours and enjoying the frozen
delight while reading a magazine in your garden. 

4. Go to a Lido
Lido is the Italian word for beach but here in England it is an outdoor public swimming pool. The perfect mix of beach breezes and swimming pool fun, Lido is a great place to simply hang out with friends. 

5. Wear sandals
This may seem like a silly one but unless you're a fan of socks and sandals it'll be almost impossible to wear them in a few weeks so I might as well wear sandals as often as possible while I can. 

What are some things you want to do before summer is over?

Makeup Inspiration

I've never really been that interested in makeup, I usually just wear foundation, blusher, mascara and maybe some eyeliner. I'm always saving images like this onto my phone so I thought I'd gather them together and do a makeup inspiration post. They're all such different looks but I love them all, I think my favourite is the one of elle fanning or the last one with just a sweep of black eyeshadow.

The Jean Paul Gaultier Exhibition

On Thursday I went to the Gaultier exhibition at the Barbican. Although me and my friend spent ages walking around London trying to using google maps to find our way there,we finally found the Barbican and it was definitely work the sore feet. The exhibition closes on August 25th (next week!) so of you're able to make it it's only £14.50 for a standard ticket and £9 for students.
I took loads of photos around London and at the exhibition so here are a few of them. 

My wonderful new trainers are from Just Fab, an online shoe shop which you must all absolutely check out because at the moment you can buy your first pair of shoes for 75% off. All of their shoes cost £35 and with the 75% off that makes all of their shoes and amazing £9!!! These trainers I bought literally feel like clouds... With it a wore a white jersey dress that a made recently which gives the outfit a sporty chic kind of look.
