You got a lovely way with words, must be the way you see the world.

Now in these times of economic crisis, which we cannot help but hear about, it is handy to be a little crafty. Which I love to do anyway, but now everyone seems to be doing it more. Too this I say great, it's about time more people looked at a top and saw there were other ways to wear it! Pour example, this top borrowed from Pamela, can be worn in 3 ways, most likely more, as this only took me about 5mins at the most!


Top: Pamela.
Belts: both vintage
Tights: Marks and Spencers
This week I have been incredibly lazy, as it has been the holidays and I have been pretending to be busy and doing lots of work so I can go to uni! This has resulted in becoming a tad uninspired when it comes to clothing, I am ashamed to admit. Therefore I decided, before I face the public once more, I would do what I like to do and try outfits, using Pamel's, Susan nd our friends Miss A's clothes.
Pink dress: Susans, from the clothes show.
Waist coat: Mine, orginally Miss A's, from Topshop.
Floral Skirt: Miss A's- a gift from Susan, from a Vintage shop.
Gold top- Susans...from where I know not.
Tights: Marks and Spencers

Last Wednesday Pamela and I went to Liverpool University, as it is my number one! Susan could not make it as she was Universiting in London. Some guy asked us to take part in a psychology experiment to do with odour...I don't know how we should of taken this but he offered us £10, we had to decline, telling him we weren't actually students there (yet!). Even though it is 7months away I am stupidly excited, mainly because Liverpool is a great city, and "student friendly", translation: cheap nights out! O and the course is the best, which is a selling point. Anyway, enough who-ha. This is what I wore:

Denim Jacket: Susans. Charity Shop, Orginally Gap me thinks.
Skirt: Topshop
Tights: Pamela's
Necklaces: Spring Festival, Charity shop and stolen from my sisters room, but she doesn't need to know that!

If I Were...

Going To The Oscars. I would wear one of these (I limited myself to choose only from the couture 09 shows so far).
Christian Dior

Christian Dior
Jean Paul Gaultier

Elie Saab

Elie Saab

Anne Valerie Hash


Christian Lacroix

Christian Dior

Christian Dior

That was soo bloody tricky to decide upon, in the end i just closed my eyes and pointed at the screen to choose which images to use. Aren't the couture collections, so far, just excellent? All of them! I'm very impressed i must say. What I wouldn't do to own one of the Dior gowns. John Galliano is genius. I would like to be his friend please. If only.

So my last post was ageeees ago about my interview for Uni. I would like to thank all the lovely people who gave me advice, it seriously came in handy! To be frank i thought I'd done shit, i had to present my portfolio and i was sooo nervous I can't remember what i said or what she asked me, it was quite horrendous. Then i had to fill in a questionnaire about myself and my knowledge of the industry, at this point I thought about the advice people gave me, to be myself, so instead of putting quite reserved answers i put what I really wanted. Then we all left thinking we had two weeks to wait for the decision. 2 days later i found out I had got in!!! SUCCESS! I can't tell you how excited i was and still am! there was screaming and crying and shock and a lot of frantic phone calls involved. I now know where i'll be for the next 3 years, what an odd concept!

If anyone needs me i'll be at Portsmouth Uni, just strolling along the beach, you know, thinking of the collection I have to design for my own catwalk and the work i have to do with contemporary designer's that show at London Fashion Week. What a boring life it's going to be.

Sarcasm aside, i am terribly nervous that i'm going be in wayyy over my head. Hell! for the moment i shall just enjoy and be incredibly excited!!

A serious thankyou to the advice givers, cheers alot guys!
