Pokeeer Faaaace.

A pick of some make-up looks I've been experimenting with. I'm SO excited about the colab with Hello Kitty and MAC. In saving up for February.

Also I've been listening to Lady Gaga's album, The Fame. It's all the same but it's very girl power while grinding. Also shes preeeeety fierce lookin'.

Generations of the same person

After seeing this mother and daughter, two separate versions of a stylish woman, I felt okay about being a young girl and being nearly 100% unable to wear heels. I will stick to my naive ideals until it's the right time to grow up and move on.

Viva La Justice.

It is impossible not to be won over by these charming specimens of French men.

I had my last exam today, and the worst, maths. What a relief but I'm still extremely tired from the stress overflow.

These trousers came in the post today from Topshop. Please excuse my stupid pose I have to squash my head under the sloped ceiling to get my shoes in the picture!

nudge nudge wink wink

= Topshop's latest "Wink Drop Armhole Vest" (£14)

Compared to ...

Lanvin's "face tank top" from the Spr/Summer Ready To Wear collection of 2008. (205 Euros)

Similar much?

As worn by Chloe Sevigny at some Couture Fashion event in 2008.

I like it.

Sale challenge VERDICT ...


Result: a perfect [first proper] LBD, and £30 more River Island credit.

Turns out River Island's skimpy sizes mean I can successfully wear a dress 2 sizes too big for me. Imagine this black dress skin-tight and on the upper part of your thigh area (yuckk)

P.S. Am I alone in my tendency to completely disregard high street sizing?

Barfin' Arfin

Leslie Arfin is cool and she has cool friends.

Just Friends

Fashion dreams

Quick note, does anyone have weird dreams where they meet big fashion people?

I had a tonne of bizarre ones recently, one where I met Karl Lagerfeld and he didn't like me (it upset me a little).

Another involved being toured through London by Natalia Vodianova who stole some money and made me hide it. ?.

Spoooky. Does this happen to you?

YSL girls

Ohh I see myself doing all the typical things as time goes by ... like slowly falling in love with YSL.

What goes black, white, black, white ....

.... my new jacket! Okay that's not necessarily funny, but it's true. But fact based jokes are funny in their own right, right?
Anyway at £13.50 (with a student discount) from the last of the Topshop sale, this was a steal.

Keeping in the black and white theme, the fog outside makes the park outside my house actually look nice (even though I had to open the windows and put a coat on so as not to freeze when taking these)

Btw does anyone reading this have any advice on lens or tripods or general camera accessories that make for better photography? I'm still a novice with my camera really.

Gagged by hollywood

One down ...

glasses - chanel
tee - blood is the new black
trousers - topshop
wedges - chrissie morris

Okay Jenni, don't give me a heart attack

The designer's spring collection was kept fairly simple with occasional embellished extravagances.

Apparently featuring 90s power dressing themes without the shoulders and bad hair. Definitely something special in this collection, produced whilst Kayne was expecting her first child, power indeed :)

Now I should concentrate on some maths revision ... but I don't mind, an extra revision class at school tomorrow will be including lots of chocolate and takeaway pizza! Work is tough ...

Jenni Kayne ... I love you

A delectable mix of 40s and grunge from Jenni Kayne's eponymous collection. You can't really argue with something that's just fundamentally cool.

Wow it feels nice to do some blogging ... exam pressure has deterred me, but at the news of a 20th January interview at University of Westminster for Fashion Buying Management, I realised that fashion isn't just my leisure but my work too.

Daryl K & Kerrigan FFaaallllll

Finally I have found another designer to be included in my personal art study, her name is Daryl Kerrigan and I chose her because of her focus on personal style and functionality and the connection she has with her audience.

Her models were recruited off the street but the designer :)

Marigolds are THE look, if you ask me.

The season of good will may be officially over now, but that doesn't mean I can't share the collection of lovelyness that was my Christmas presents.
