My love for striped tops came from this film, and when I put on my crisp stripe top, I always like to think that I look at elegant and doll like as Winona Ryder does, but the truth is I'm far from it.

Girl Interrupted, is by far one of my favourite films. It is Based on the book (of the same name), of author Susanna Kaysen's 18-month stay at a mental hospital in the 1960s. She enter's the hospital because of her depression and an attempted suicide which she denies doing. The film continues from here, and introducing other amazing characters. Georgina is a pathological liar. Polly has been badly scarred by fire. Daisy (Brittany Murphy) won't eat in the presence of other people. Lisa (Angelina Jolie) is a sociopath, and the biggest influence on the other girls in the hospita, and has a history of escapes. It's my favourite role of Angelina Jolie ever. 

The styling however, is not typically 1960's, there is no mini skirts and beehives, Winona's character is the modern Audery Hepburn, Breton tops, men's shirts, tailored trousers and comfy loafers, her hair is also so elegant too, when ever I am dressing for work, I always like to try and capture this look, to me it's the ultimate feminine look.

But what do you think?

Remember this scene from Edward Scisscorhands? Peg visiting Edward's castle in the hills dropping off her latest Avon Catalogue, though its no longer pastel colours and wool co-ords, the principle (earning a little extra cash) is still there, which is why I have recently become an Avon representative! Woohoo!!

Living for the now

So I took a lil break from blogging - work (not my life but work!) was getting in the way a bit. But in a perfectly busy way, I was doing long hours, weeks and travel but all it was all amazing!  In the last 5 weeks I have been to London, Paris, Portugal, been on 2 photoshoots, designing AW14, sending clothing to celebs and writing articles for magazines. However, things are slowing down to sort of normality now which excites me because I can get back blogging!! Yay!

LOST CONTROL - slogan top's

Daily I am filling up my online wishlist's and shopping baskets, with what seems like an endless amount of slogan tee's. There is just something so effortlessly stylish about a slogan tee, and they are the perfect item to wear on the those 'I just really can't be bothered days'. The 'I can't be bothered to speak so I'll let my t-shirt do the talking' kinda days. Just throw it on with a pair of jeans and converse or boots and the outfit is done.

And I especially love them, when they are a little bit offensive ;)

I recently came across the site divinetrash.co.uk. They have some great slogan tops. The above 'Lost Control t-shirt is £34 is something I am now really lusting for, equally I love this 'Porn is the new Black' £48 the drapery cut is a great alternative to the standard t-shirt and would look great with some Black Milk leggings. And this 'Led Bloody Zeppelin' vest £45 just makes me smile!

DAY IN THE LIFE: London Visit

This Saturday I spent the day in London with my lovely friend Michelle (who travelled down from Sunderland may I add) to visit the Andy Warhol’s Muse by David McCabe exhibition at Proud Camden. Of course that was just a small part of the day, we also did a small amount of retail therapy on Oxford St and within the Camden markets.


Just a quick post. I was in London Saturday and took a quick snapshot of what I was wearing. I am completely obsessed with white at the moment and I wanted to share with you my obsession!

Anyways! lotta love!
