My Current Obsessions

Hi lovelies- its finally half term which means I finally have some time to relax and unwind. I thought that this would be a perfect opportunity to share with you some of the things that I love to do in my spare time (is it sad that most of them revolve around the internet? heh)

20130218-211548.jpgThe first thing that I absolutely love is the ipad magazine “Just another fashion magazine”. Ipad magazines in general are really fascinating to me- I love how interactive they are- most of them giving off a really ‘bloggish’ feel and style. This one is relatively cheap, and really well put together, I always have fun looking through the articles, and the links to new websites that I would never have found without it! If you have an ipad (or an iphone- not that I have one, but I assume it’s available on there too), definitely check it out on the newsstand- some of the past issues are only 69p if you dont want to commit to spending £1.50 (or however much it is) until you are completely sure whether you like the style or not!

Amelie has always been one of my favourite films. One of my little habits when i’m bored is to watch clips of it on youtube (which usually results in me digging out my dvd and watching the whole film). Anyway, this clip is one of my absolute favourites from the whole film, just because it is so cute. If you’ve never seen Amelie go and watch it now.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

As you are probably all aware, it’s London Fashion Week this week, which means I’m constantly online trying to keep up with the shows. I have such great fun doing this- maybe one year i’ll be lucky enough to actually physically attend (we can always hope right ha). You all know I am a huuuge fan of Mulberry- so here are a few photos from their Autumn Winter 2013 show. (Have I ever mentioned that I am completley and totally in love with Cara Delevingne before? But then again, who isn’t?)

It’s so simple, but its really fun- i’m not even a person that usually plays games on my phone- but this is brilliant ok. Hah.

The lovely Kareen from www.ziba-blog.com  has recently nominated me for a Liebster Award!! It’s such an honour coming from her, and I’ll make a post all about it really soon 🙂

That’s all for now- I hope you all had a great monday!

À bientôt!!

London Collections- Men AW13

So, these past few days have seen a huge number of menswear fashion shows in London, for the 3 days of London Collections.

Personally, I have always been really interested in menswear (there was actually a period of time where I was seriously considering studying it at university), and the shows this year didn’t disappoint.

The majority of the shows have concentrated on the idea of the “english gentleman”, with top hats and bow ties making a lot of appearances.

There was one show in particular that I just felt the need to share with you. You have to watch this video, showing “The Nutters of Savile Row x Peter Werth”‘s collection. I promise you, you’ll love it- it takes a typical runway show and adds a quirky twist 🙂

These outfits were some of my favourites from the collection. I love the little pop of colour added from the pink and red blazers, colourful ties and vests, and obviously the blue trousers. I think it adds a quirky, fun aspect to the traditional black and white of mass produced menswear.

I absolutely love the top hat, you have no idea how happy I would be if it became fashionable for men to wear them again haha! And bow ties of course of course 🙂

London fashion week is next month! My plan is to go and lurk outside of somerset house, does anyone want to join me? hah!

À bientôt!!
