Urban Conflict

I'll admit, this is the second time I've wrote this post. I knew on second glance that a whole paragraph relating to the weather caused for a rather drastic course of action. With LFW been and gone, along with various other events, I feel like I should have more to write about. I don't. The truth is the past 2 weeks have consisted of, what is slowly turning into, a very monotonous routine; up, out, sixth-form, home, work, bed. My daily procedures were, rather welcomingly at that, interrupted one day last week for a trip to London's Globe to watch 'A Midsummer Night's Dream'. The play in its self was extremly entertaining, particularly a very 'pleasing' King of the fairies (a high point I must admit.) I went to capital clothed in some of my very latest A/W purchases, including my Asos Longline coat (a victim of many a wishlist). Initially I was quite wary of the coat, scared that its length might allow direct comparisons between myself and John from 'The Breakfast Club'. Luckily, no one has spotted the similarity and the coat has quickly turned into an everyday essential (often even paired up with a removable faux fur collar). The Zara camo dress, my controversial dress, has also made its way into my top purchases. The thing I love most about this dress is that it always stirs conversation (urban conflict, getttiitt?!), not that I usually condone peacocking of any kind (street stylers I'm talking to you!) Camo aside, I think I'm slowly falling in love with snakeskin; be it a good thing I am not entirely sure. If I start to resemble Tarzan let me know, yeah.

What I wore:

Ps: So sorry for the ridiculous amount of photographs. My indecisiveness is one of my greater qualities...

This post is dedicated to my little English 'crew' (pardon me) and to this really weird girl (it's her birthday or something...)

So it's that time of the year again, fashion week, and the past 3 days of my life have consisted of many many hours lusting over my computer screen, reading hundreds and thousands of fashion columns and  eating peanut butter of the spoon, followed by, of course, brief periods of self-loathing. I'm kidding, sort of. I feel here it's appropriate to note a quick apology for my
disappearance over the past 2 weeks; it appears that 2 Art AS levels have taken more time out of my existence than expected. Currently I'm sitting in my studio (a summer of building work apparently well spent)  surrounded by masses of paper, paint pots and numerous lists of what I have to get done tonight. Consequently I'm going to make this one quick, but I shouldn't worry a mid-week blog post is already in the making. Antipodium SS14 and as per usual House Of Holland, seem to be particularly catching my eye at the moment.

Till then,

Ps: Christopher Kane tomorrow!
