Men's Shoot Pattern Clash

One of my first ever menswear shoots! Last weekend I got to collaborate with Sarina Scheepers who is (and has been for a significant time) very high up on my Inspiration List! Very talented and pretty much amazing, she takes me with her on these exciting fashion adventures and I'm reeling at the results. 

I decided on the theme Pattern Clash. Think florals mixed with stripes, tartan, Aztec, brocade and general jazz - all married together by complementary colour tones. It's a mixture of the very Old pulled from some of London's best vintage and thrift stores; and very New from this year's graduate designers from the local fashion schools.

Pleather you like it or not.

My Pleather skirt finally arrived from China! This season a leather skirt is a bit of a must-have and I had my eye on the Zara studded rara skirt but its £75.... So while a wait for a payday/pop-up presents/miracles/or money to fall out of my ears I bought this pleather alternative from eBay. I plan to stud it up once they come in the post too. So I've teamed it with my ages-old jumper and my ancient but reliable faith  wedges.

Today I'm wearing:
Jumper with faux fur epaulettes - Next
Necklace - eBay
Skirt - eBay
Wedges - Faith

Ball and Chain

It's been a blue month! Unintentionally as it's certainly not reflecting any form of somber moods, chills or tranquility. Perhaps even the opposite; I'm so busy I feel like my head might just explode - with fashion weeks in full swing and shoots to book. Today I'm wearing something else I snatched up at a bargain price of $2.50 in the States: my velvet shirt. 

Today I'm Wearing:
Velvet shirt - Florida, USA
Shoes - Office

True Blue

Sorry hugely for the squinting - its so sunny! What a lovely day for blue. I've spent this afternoon in the garden, not working but enjoying the company of a fox who decided quite confidently to sunbathe next to me. They're more like cats than dogs - they play and chase bits of floating fluff and butterflies and sunbathe! 
This is the Kimono I picked up in Florida in a daytime look - but I'm going out for dinner tonight and probably won't change...

Today I'm wearing blue:
Kimono - Florida, USA
Necklace - ASOS
Dress - Urban Outfitters

Holiday Haul

A big reason for being massively absent in August was that I spent a good chunk of three weeks holidaying in Florida. It was the best - all you can eat full fat, fully greasy, feeling full food; soft American accents; the sun; Disney; and of course, the shopping. I'd already made a shopping list and saved for items of brands which I knew would be cheaper in the States but that rapidly went out the window when I came face to face with thrift stores and flea markets - something I could have never anticipated.

Here's the fashion haul vid of some of my favourite things I picked up out there. I spent less than $200 overall in three weeks and came back with at least 7-10kg more! 

The day after visiting Disney - and feeling very Minnie Mouse inspired....

Minnie Mouse Headphone!

My gorgeous new double faced watched sitting pretty.

Blogger's Block

If there is such a thing... It's been exactly one month since my last post. That's yonks. I found it really difficult to get back into the swing of things arriving back from Florida - I think I've got post-holiday blues! Work is work, it's cloudy and there's a distinct chill that wasn't there before. The only thing keeping my upbeat is my tan and my Summer clothes. Talk about a serious sufferer of Seasonal Affective Disorder. So here's probably my last post with my bare legs out and summer attire - hello Autumn layering and big big boots!

Today I'm wearing:
Shorts - River Island
Shoes - TK Maxx
Bag - Mischa Barton
