there's glass in the park

Above: Fashion illustrations and moodboard for SS13.
My favourite bits from spring/summer 2013 trend research are clompy chunky footwear. Think creepers, clogs, japanese style shoes, Prada ss13. Popular materials being perspex, jewel embellishments, oriental embroidery detailling. There definetly also seems to be an overall 60's trend (Louis Vuitton, Chanel..) with block prints and shift dresses. 

i love you, but you have no idea what you're talking about

Moonrise Kingdom

your light is ultraviolet

I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas :) Above a few recent purchases and presents: 

Tapestry Skirt £14 Primark
Sparkle baroque leggings £18 Topshop sale
Baroque shorts £15 Topshop sale
Embellished top £18 Miss Selfridge sale

Hopefully I will be able to dedicate more time to this blog in the new year, I can't believe in the last 4 months I've moved to London and started my internship at Warehouse. I would definetly recommend the year in industry option to any uni student, I've learnt so much already. :-)

Above: Moodboard for 'embellishment' trend. Fashion illustrations, my own, inspired by Chanel & Balmain SS13. Chanel and Erdem runway shots. Chinoiserie, baroque, gothic romance. I would really like some heavily embellished shorts and a jewelled, crystal and velvet box bag.

I'm no teenage icon

Above: Recent purchases. Yesturday I spent the day at Westfield Shopping Centre, managing to find these multi colour stud pumps only £12 at Primark! And a slouchy print tee in the Topshop sale for £12.
If you're in search of ridiculously cheap flea markets in London, I would definitely recommend Deptford Market. They have huge piles of old clothes piled onto tables for £1-£2! I got these printed Laura Ashley trousers for £1 and the navy knit cardi for 50p. (I love the little silver buttons!)
