Spitalfield Sunday

Sunday's can only mean one thing... a day of sleeping, eating and shopping. Actually, minus the sleeping part; after a few too many archers and lemonades Saturday night, my brain went into idol mode and I returned home (fair to say a little off balanced) in the early hours Sunday morning. Lets just say that extra hour in bed was extremely appreciated!

Any who back to 'fashion blog' talk... I visited Spitalfields market in East London for the first time and after strolling around for what seemed like hours, my only thought was 'Why the hell have I not been here before!'! An eclectic mix of vintage clothing, antique jewellery and pop art prints grace the stalls whilst the smell of cafe lattes and croissants fill the autumn air. I found myself an antique gold pocket watch and vintage woolen cardigan for just £25 for the two. And my Sunday morning of trawling through clothes never stopped there, in fact it just got a whole lot more exciting at Brick lane, before heading back to the comforts of the highstreet where regretfully I left behind a lovely pair of Leopard print converse (Deffinately one for the Christmas list, if I can wait!). Oh how I love to shop.

A cheeky trip to Madame Tussauds... Hello Einstein.

Purchase photos should be making an appearence sometime in the near future... that is if my week goes to plan.

Happy Halloween!

LBD and block platforms

How amazing would these orange and brown strappy platforms look with a simple black dress. Definately a no brainer for all those other lazy ladies out there who like me sometimes just fancy wearing the ever-so-satisfying little black dress. Perhaps kooky them up a little with a pair of lacy socks! shoes and dress, Topshop socks

Want, love, need

Ok, so I've spent the evening browsing through the archives of Topshop tumblr (looking for inspiration for an assignment of course). And how amazing it is! It's a great way of finding new ways that you would never have thought to have worn something before. The only downside is the fact that I've got myself another list of must have items for the glorious season of Autumn! So here goes for my wish list...

1) A white masculine buttoned up shirt.

2) Chunky brown leather platforms and a pleated mint maxi skirt. 

3) A heap load of finger candy!

4) Leopard print blouse. Yes please!

5) Tangerine trousers.

6) Leather trousers.

7) Luscious RED lips.

8) That EXACT midi skirt! Love love love.

9) Printed denim shorts.

10) Waterfall hem maxi skirt.

And in the meantime the rabbit is up to her usual tricks...
Eating fake flowers. Hmm, perhaps more attention is needed. No more Topshop Tumblr.

Pin stripe shirt and woolen skirt

Wow, what a week!

I started back at Uni last week and already been given four assignments due in just before Christmas. Apparently its the 'season to be jolly', but whoever came up with this phrase obviously did not have students in mind! Anywho, being the dedicated and well organised student I am, I've already started brainstorming and cracking on with the research. However I do wonder how long this attitude will continue... I do have a tendancy of getting distracted by the latest episode of Towie now and again! Yes, I'm a secret Towie fan. On top of this, I've just started a new job in a cool little champagne bar! Hooray for change and sleepless nights!

In the meantime I've been browsing the net and found an amazing Pinstripe shirt! Definately one for those adrogyny lovers out there! I'll be wearing mine tucked into a woolen skirt with contrasting tights, shoe boots and a stack of enamel bangles for a winter urban cool look. Perfecto.
