Here is a moodboard showcasing my favourite pieces from H&M's new fashion brand & other stories. All the clothes featured are really reasonably priced and look a lot more expensive than they are. Here are just a few of my favourite pieces, including the clear plastic bag (which I desperately want) and the white wrap over shorts. Actually, just give me it all.
I cannot wait for the next five weeks to fly by so I can do more bits on here, and also have my social life back. However, I am quite enjoying this last (ever) project....perhaps I am clinging on to the final stages of education. Madness.
I have re-kindled my love for some bands and artists I used to listen to a few years ago, so that explains my currently listening to below.
I have also wrote a few pieces for the Nottingham Trent 'Platform' magazine, Peace - In Love album, King Charles live and Little Comets live. The students do a great job of maintaing the website and the perks for me are free gigs!
Currently listening to; Bon Iver, Them Crooked Vultures, Ariel Pink.
I haven't blogged in SO long, and this is partly due to being bogged down with third year work and mostly due to the fact I have been feeling particularly uninspired as of late. Above are just a few photos from my dissertation work on Mod culture, shot in a seaside caff in my hometown.
Music wise, I am super excited for the release of the Made Of Stone film by Shane Meadows following the journey of The Stone Roses. Their first gig at Heaton Park last year was one of the highlights of my life so I am pretty happy this documentary is being shown at Broadway cinema in Notts, which is right on my doorstep.
Fashion wise, lots of vintage 1960s numbers have been purchased by myself from eBay and Etsy, pictures of which will soon follow.
Melissa is wearing a Fred Perry coat, vintage scarf and Dr Marten shoes.
Currently listening to; The Velvet Underground, The Temptations, The Strypes.
My time has been spent attempting third year Uni work, going to gigs and writing. Also, I am becoming a little obsessed with Etsy, check my favourite items here.
Currently listening to; King Krule, Haim, Bloc Party, Keaton Henson.
London Fashion Week has come and gone once again and my lust for clothes has risen to a miraculous high. One of my favourite shows was surprisingly, for me, Topshop Unique's Fall collection. The plastic....so so shiny. The clothes were based upon the Nineties Brit-pop era and this is evidenced throughout..sequins and thin straps people. I am also digging the bright red and knit combination.
Simone Rocha also filled my love for baby pink and Sixties silhouettes, whilst Tom Ford's daring tacky comic book clash caught my attention in a fairly positive way.
Currently listening to; Foals (Holy Fire is the shit), The Kills, Swim Deep.
Erdem Moraliogluis one of my favourite fashion designers. Each collection is as beautiful as the last, with this pre-fall 2013 look book showing off an array of layers, lengths, colours and patterns which are just so elegant and sweet.
Hope you all had a lovely Christmas, I have been procrastinating over my final year work a ridiculous amount, because blogging and eating chocolate pudding seems so much more appealing....
I have also been very naughty and ordered a few bits from the Topshop sale, you can never have too many leather skirts and coats right?
I wish you all have a happy New Year!! xx
One week to go. I have come home and been sifting through all my possessions (junk) in my bedroom and come across some CD's I forgot I even had. Bringing back memories of when I was at school, some albums include; Maximo Park - Apply some pressure, The Rakes - Ten new messages, The Twang - Love it when I feel like this, The Last Shadow Puppets - The age of the understatement. Crazy how that was five, nearly six years ago.
Having fun down the beach again in the freezing cold, Alicia is wearing a sixties vintage number from a newly moved vintage shop in Nottingham - Backlash. Probably the best vintage shop in the City on a good day, as it is fairly priced.
I can't believe that it is only two weeks until Christmas and so far I have done zero shopping or preparation for it. To be honest, I haven't even watched any Christmas films or inspired myself to get into the spirit of it all. It doesn't seem like two minutes ago it was Summer. Above are some of the things that have kept my occupied, plus a weird photo of myself. I have been going mad on eBay recently and bought some gorgeous sixties dresses and a new Fred Perry polo, I have also been drooling over things on Etsy, such as this Olive and Ruby calendar, this Bee Ring and this antique cup and saucer.
In order; 'Mollie Makes' Christmas craft book, Cone of chips, Queens of the Stone Age on non stop play, myself at the seaside, a Victoria Sponge I baked (and didn't ruin) and a me.
currently listening to; Lianne La Havas, Alt J, Alabama Shakes.
