Everyday is like Sunday...

Since I've been off school, I have had a lot of spare time that I can use to draw and design clothes so I just thought that I'd share some of my work. My inspiration came from 60s fashion and pop culture, especially artists such as Andy Warhol.

Lots of love,

I'll stop wearing black when they invent a darker colour

I hope you all had a fabulous Christmas and a wonderful time with your families exchanging presents, having fun and eating a lot. Although I had an amazing Christmas, it does seem to be an awful lot of preparation for just one day which is over before it even began...
I love seeing what other people received for Christmas, it's like seeing people's excitement all over again as they show off what they got so I thought I'd show you some of my gifts.

I love my new River Island shoulder bag. It has a really interesting snake/crocodile print. I'm also super happy because I finally got the Bastille extended edition cd and it has been on repeat for ages. Other things that were given to me were new acrylic paints, brushes, nail varnish, The Perks of Being a Wallflower DVD (which I've watched 4 times already!), some clothes, pyjamas, sewing bits and bobs and makeup. I think that's all... Overall it was a brilliant Christmas but I'm definitely glad all the stress of buying presents is over. Now it's time to lose the few pounds I gained after eating so much!

Today I went to the sales at Westfields shopping centre in Stratford; there was only one thing on my mind. A few weeks ago I found the most amazing pair of flatforms in Topshop for £58 and when I checked online yesterday they had been reduced to £25!!!
It's ridiculous how happy I was when I walked out of the shop with them in my bag <3
I don't think I'll ever take them off...

I also bought this black skirt from River Island for £10 and later on the day I made a pair of black velvet shorts. They used to be trousers but there was a rip in the bottom so I cut them off and sewed in a new hem.

How was your Christmas? Did you dare to go to the crazy Boxing Day sales?

Frances Bean Cobain

Daughter of the late Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love, Frances Bean Cobain's shoot with Hedi Slimane from 2011 is one of my favourite photography sets ever. I adore Hedi Slimane's work and Frances Cobain is such a beautiful muse. Taking the best features from ther parents, Cobain literally has the perfect genes.
Although Frances Cobain didn't spend much of her childhood in front of the cameras, in this alluring portrait she looks like she was born to be there.
'Art is the solution to chaos'
Cobain rocks jet black hair, tons of jewellery and intriguing tattoos. 
Nowadays, Cobain is a self proclaimed 'goth wino' and has also gone blonde, the hair colour of both her parents.
Still just as stunning, and look at how cute her kitten is!
Lots of love,

Red Carpet looks of 2013

There have been many amazing red carpet looks this year and I'm sure I missed a few out but here are my favourite red carpet moments from 2013. 
Lady Gaga always knows how to make an entrance and I think her at the AMAs is probably my favourite red carpet moment of 2013. She looked absolutely stunning but still kept her regular theatrics by riding in on a white puppet horse. The fit of this Versace dress was a little odd but the colour was gorgeous and Gaga being Gaga just made it work.

I love this dress by Prabal Gurung that Diane Kruger wore to the Metropolitan Opera. Black, red and white can be very hard colours to wear together often looking harsh but Kruger made this dress look so elegant. 
Rihanna at the Grammy Awards is a red carpet moment that I don't think I'll forget for a very long time. She literally looked like a princess in this Azzedine Alaïa gown. She looked glamourous, sexy, sophisticated; everything a woman should look on the red carpet. I love Rihanna's edgy look up but she should have her hair and make up like this everyday. It's gorgeous!
In my opinion, Kerry Washington has been one of the best dressed celebrities this year. She always look like perfection- from head to toe. I love the Louis Vuitton SS13 show but I did question how some of the dresses would be worn in a real life and I definitely think Kerry Washington wore the dress how Marc Jacobs would've intended it. Her hair, her shoes, her accessories; everything just works so amazingly together.

Miley Cyrus has caused a lot of controversy this year but whatever your opinion o. Other you have to admit she knows how to dress well. I love this sleek, seductive white Azzaro dress but how she stayed true to her style with the spikyish hair and natural makeup. I love how Miley can change her look from a wild girl just coming out of teenage hood to a demure woman.

Michele Obama look dazzling in this Marchesa ball gown. This colour on her skin tone is so beautiful and I love the princess shape of the dress. I think without the sleeves it would've been to girlish and a little prommy but the way sleeves fall delicately on her arm really just makes this outfit even more stunning
Cara Delevigne. What do I even say about her? This year she has taken over the modelling world with her countless campaigns, magazine covers and runway shows. When she turned up at the Met Gala in this studded Burberry column dress I think my heart stopped beating for a few minutes. To be honest, Cara would look amazing in a bin bag but I love how she embraced the punk theme and still look so elegant. 
Absolutely adore the way Solange Knowles dresses. She takes risks and is someone who always surprises you on the red carpet. This Stéphane Rolland couture dress that she wore to the Cannes Film Festival literally made her look like a goddess. The way the wind blew the sheer fabric around her created such a magical moment.
Jennifer Lawrence looked absolutely radiant at the Annual Academy Awards in this stunning couture gown from Dior. Although the voluminous gown did cause her to fall whilst she collected her ward for Best Actress, I don't think Jennifer Lawrence has ever looked so beautiful. I think I'm actually in love with dress. I mean just imagine wearing it!

I hope you enjoyed my list of the best red carpet looks this year and if there are any that you think I missed out why don't you comment them below :)
Lots of love

Office wish list

Office wish list

Office chunky heel platform shoes
$105 -

Office mary jane shoes
$100 -

Office mary jane shoes
$98 -

Nike Air Max Thea
$130 -

JuJu Sammy
$16 -

I am in desparate need of a new pair shoes so here is my wish list of some shoes that I really NEED from Office (hint hint for anyone who wants to buy me a Christmas present ;))
I don't know how it happened but all the shoes have a fairly similar colour scheme, I guess because I want a pair of shoes that I can wear with multiple outfit and those both of those brogues are just perfect. I've also been looking for a pair of trainers. When I told my mum she actually laughed in my face because trainers are just so not me but those Nike Air Max's are pretty hot. I will always love Mary Jane heels and the silver pair are just so cute and dainty but they won't kill my feet if I wear them all night.
What's on your Christmas list?
Lots of love,

Ootd 12/12

Today I wore one of the jumpers that I bought at the vintage £1 sale, an old skirt of my mums and my red converses. I really want to start having fun with what I wear again; I'm always rushing in the mornings so rarely have time to even think about what Ike wearing...
Lots of love,
