Everyone I see just wants to walk with gritted teeth

Above: snaps from Leeds Festival & a few in London. 
Leeds was amazing, favourites were The Black Keys, Foo Fighters, Kasabian, Crystal Castles, Foster The People & Jake Bugg. The weather was also suprisingly good for Yorkshire, I actually got a tan haha. 
Most of the London photos were taken in Nottinghill, such a beautiful area of the city. I've finally got my house sorted and will be moving the the big city this Saturday!

You got to put your shoulder, shoulder to the wheel

Above: dress £7 in H&M sale. I love the elegantly fitting shape and the lace, and the fact its so versatile. I think I'd wear it with wedges on a night out or military boots, a barbour-esq coat and light cotton scarf during the day.

My Leeds fest weekend ticket arrive yesturday! I'm already planning outfits inspired by above collage. My favourite icons are Chloe Sevigny & Agyness Deyn. 
I'm so excited for Foo Fighters, The Black Keys, The Vaccines, Florence, Crystal Castles & Jake Bugg

street style

Above: illustrations of street style inspiration. what i love most about working in fashion retail is people watching, noticing which trends and key pieces seem to be the most popular. The other day I noticed so many young women wearing mid length skirts, particularly jersey, slightly more fitted ones. I love the combination of clumpy shoes+ awkward 'dorky' length.

Below: inspiration+ideas- Suzie from Style Bubble, Chloe Fall 2012, Elizabeth from Donnie Darko and Andie from Pretty In Pink.

DIY Distressed Shorts

These were originally full length jeans from a carboot.. about 50p or something. I basically cut and frayed the edges, went bleach happy and de-studded an old belt, taking inspiration from the studded denim shorts at Topshop, UO..

I've bought a tonne of work/smart clothes lately, below are my beige, suede lace up wedges from Topshop £15 in the sale wahoooo :-) as well as lots of other sale bits and pieces.
