Statement Shoes

I'm developing a thing for shoes lately. A few days ago my new Topshop Heeled Brogues arrived. Being snakeskin and all that, they're quite the statement. But I really like them!




Also, I know I haven't posted in a while now, but I'm finishing off a ton of assignments. Partly because tomorrow I'm off to London for the weekend for a mini-break (of sorts)! :)

Bits and bobs

This week I took quite a lot of photos for my Fashion blog, and I thought I'd show you my favourites.

A Topshop Crop Top :)

Spike necklace from Regal Rose. Love lovity love love.

Head over heels (heels? get it?) with these shoes.
They're ASOS AVA booties.

Cool Ear Cuff. I'm getting another similar one from ASOS though 'cause I really liked it too. 

Oh, I love these shorts.

Part of a little activity we did in the Fashion Foundation course I attended last March.

Printy, print, prints.

So I know there are the Fall/Winter shows going on, but I'm gradually easing into a more 'spring-y' state of mind. Mostly I've been creating a lot of Polyvore outfits with particular themes in mind. These themes are prints, leather looks (yes. I wants leather), and pastels/colour blocking. I'm not much of a fan of colour-blocking really, but I tend to like it with pastels. :)

For the sake of avoiding ridiculously long-wided posts, I will focus on prints and florals today, which is my favourite-est theme. Especially electric floral prints. LOVE. Also, Mary Katrantzou's peices... *AWE*.

It's a two-tone floral thing:



Print-astic!




What I'm eager to try out is to mix two items in a different floral print. I think it can play out really well. Who needs colour blocking when you can mis-match prints? Hah. Kidding. (Or am I? O.o)

That Lampshade dress:






Print-astic 2



That lampshade dress. Cliche, you say? Well, maybe. But it's still pretty awesome. This dress was actually done by Mary Katrantzou in collaboration with Topshop. I believe it's already sold out, by the way.

The Floral-Leopard Combination:


Print-astic 3




I feel I have to point out a few things about this last outfit. First off, it's in a tie with the first as my favourite outfit. Secondly, I know I said 'Spring' looks, but I said I was easing into it not jumping head first, hence the coat (also, I'm in love with that coat.) Thirdly, the floral-leopard combination was inspired by an outfit Olivia Palermo donned on Day 3 (if I'm not mistaken) of the London Fashion Week. Observe:

Photo taken from meek-n-mild. Awesome blog. (do visit! :)

See the leopard- floral combination? It's daring, and some might not light the effect, but I loves it. The trick here is that the trousers barely graze the ankle, so there's that bit of skin separating the floral  from the leopard. Removing that gap would probably be a mistake.

Anway, now I'm off to prepare for tomorrow. We have Design fundamentals in the morning and in the afternoon, then I'm out for a (possibly) crazy night. Today it has been the most radnom day. I had piano lesson, came home, tried on a few outfits, finally opted for my black ZARA coat, tan oversized cardigan, lace top, leopard scarf and studded boots (I loved that outfit)... Then I went to visit my gran and spent some time with her. Seriously, she's the best. :)

Designer Blazers For Less

I've got quite a random post for you guys today. As I told you before, I've been eyeing quite a number of blazers at the Spring Summer shows. Honestly though, High Street ones are sometimes just as gorgeous. So to show you this, I took some of my picks from Designer collections and found High Street pieces which, I think, reflect the idea rather well.

Helmut Lang, Topshop

Chloe, ASOS



D&G, River Island



Altzurra, River Island, Topshop



Diane Von Furstenberg, Topshop

Now I'm off, I've got a model of a façade to do by Wednesday and ohmygod I need to get working. Not to mention that tomorrow I start my second semester at Uni. Wish me luck. Gah.

Look at the bright side of things

Getting on with my Systems of Knowledge project! Woop woop :)

"The Bright Side" feature in my project about vivid looking styles.



This is a sketch I'm doing from a Teen Vogue issue for the feature mentioned above.


Topshop's lookbook was amazing. It's was my inspiration for the design on the right.
