Chanel Couture Spring Summer 2015



I love this show sooo much, I had to consciously stop myself from posting every photo I could find from it hehe
 I love the paper jungle installation, it looks like the centerfold of a children's pop up book. The bride hidden by tulle and chiffon followed by a procession of garden boys in straw hats carrying green quilted watering cans add to the fairy tale-like display. The collection takes a relaxed look on couture, featuring floral decorated beanie hats and elongated woolen skirts. The bold coloured woolen suits with straw hats wrapped in tulle are shortly followed by cropped suit jackets and low waisted skirts, giving a fresh take on the crop top. The netting attached to hats and wrapped around the eyes remind me of a bee-keepers mask, adding to the garden concept. Each look is so rich in detail, tiny flowers are sewn onto the seams of jackets and tied to the ends of loose plaits, hats are feathered, sequined and beaded, sea shells and chiffon flowers are sewn into dresses and a honeycombed rim forms the end of a coat. Flowers are used as material forming floral hoods, shoulder pads and pockets. The traditional Chanel suit is frayed and adorned with accessories like long belts and the floral gloves. The prominence of black dresses, skin tight boots and tulle hats that partly conceal the face add to the allure of the collection and prevent the pastel floral dresses from visually receding into the paper jungle.

Leopard Print


top - h&m
shorts - topshop (sold out similar here)
boots - topshop

I'm currently snowed in at home so I've been watching Twin Peaks and reading lots. I think I will always be obsessed with the Edie Sedgwick look, leopard print and black velvet forever <3
 I've been using temporary hair dye recently (L'Oreal Paris Casting Creme Gloss) but it has left a lot of copper tones in my hair. Does anyone know how to reduce the copper tones without dying it again? I would love to get back to my original colour

Cast Me Marc: Marc By Marc Jacobs S/S 15

Marc Jacobs Spring 2015 campaign features models cast from social media sites. After the success of the Autumn/Winter 14 campaign Marc by Marc Jacobs used the hastag #castmemarc to source models from social media sites like instagram and twitter. Similar to Meadham Kirchhoff's Spring/Summer 15 show designers are turning to social media to cast models. There is hope for us normals yet hehe :)

White Light/White Heat


coat - forever 21 (sold out similar here)
dress - oh my love
bag - river island
shoes - new look

My attempts at posting my outfit (I'm in desperate need of a tripod). I love this plaid boyfriend coat so much, I never thought Id get tired of wearing parkas but I've lived in them for three years and I think its time to move on. I found these shoes at the bottom of my wardrobe, I sort of forgot they existed. I think they look really cool with this dress or possibly a white shirt and black jeans. It's the last week before I have to go back to uni so I'm trying to cram as many books, movies and music into my free time as is possible, its exhausting, I think I'm relaxing wrong hehe
