Today...all i need is a black apron and a french accent

No, im not off to a shift a the Havana Bar,Brighton.

Jimmy Choo's.side zip, snakeskin and sprinkled with studds of all assortments.

Topshop lace leotard, i clearly clearly remember buying this with some birthday money over 2 years ago!!And i've worn it to shreds, literally.

Primark black skinnies.Possibly the best skinnies i've ever put my hard earned wonga into...and got more that a pennie's change back.

Flicking through a little book of sex tips - wait wrong medium
Flicking through a little book of trend tips - Yeh. Okay,GLAMOUR.

My peepers caught sight of this fun Ray Ban Wayfarer advert. Reminded me of the many times Foot and I (and a little bit of Hawkins)have ventured into the cramped yet hugely varied, photo-booths.

First stop. LONDON.Rough Trade. a while back. First meeting with a rather influential chap, with some rather divine leopard print footwear.

Second Stop.LONDON.PunkClub Soho-Victoria Station Face Paint.Free Candy. Circus Acts.

Third Stop.HASTINGS.We got lost.I got lost.Big Booth.Bigger laughs.Big airbrush

My point?
This ad looks so fun, but so so simple. Just proves that not every trend or brand, colour or style have to try and out do McQueen's magnificent stage acts to get noticed. This is what I love about Fashion as an Art vs Fashion as an Ego.

To:Granny. RE:Knit like your pension relies on it.

Little trip to T-Wells reminded me to start stocking up on casual,cosy, easy clothes for college...uni... Garments i can wrap myself into in between walks from the gravely car park to through the smelly canteen and into the haven of our fashion rooms. Items that i can whizz on in a jiffy after abusing the snooze button one too many times...HELLO CHUNKY KNIT.
Trusty skinny jeans-soft,supple and totally floor-worn, tidy 'Zara basic' fitted top for silhouette and over sized,huge knit,knit. Love this Stefanel range, but i think the look would be more complete with a pair of mid shin, tongue hanging low - a dog panting in the Sahara, low- ankle boots, and some uber long thigh high socks- rolled right down.

I sure ain't gunna let no J.Frost ruin this season. Biatccch.

TROOP? Meeting #1

Brighton Marina
Seattle Hotel
Conference Room
The Beginning...

So, today i met up with two business guys, who want to set up a self customising tailored shirt online store...and they asked ME, not even a degree student (YET) to pop along and give advise on their initial plans and idea's on current or upcoming fashion, trends, colours, forecasting, style, layout, photography...two and a bit short hours later and we'd come up with a fab brainstorm of idea's, just to get the ball rolling.
Their idea's have got huge huge potential, but need YOUR help! After Menswear designers and definitely after a hand with photography, styling, modelling when the launch happens! We're eager to get it done before Christmas, so a lot of work needs to be put in.
I'm having another meeting soon so I'll keep you all updated.I've run our idea's through with Sam earlier today (Foot Wears-The Personal Uniform) and we've come up with some that we can hopefully expand on.

All in all, a very productive day!

Today I'm...MAXIng Out the Store Card.

LOVE this Maxi. Searched high and low for a dress which wasn't cotton, wasn't too thin, wasn't too high street but isn't a pain to wash. Thank you Old Town Hastings for stocking this beaut and for not breaking the piggy bank. The back on this is pretty unusual too, I'll hopefully be uploading one soon!
Tried getting some trend spotting snaps, but if you ever visit Hastings, you'll understand why i was unsuccessful.Better luck next time?

Oh and the gold necklace, Snoopers Paradise. BEST SHOP IN THE SOUTH?Ohhhh yes. without a doubt. Its pretty much a feature in all my outfits/life.

Today...I'm giving Dotty P a pedi.

Basic ol' 60's cream shift dress, with cute detailed buttons on the shoulder, feel like i should be preppin' the wax pot in a salon in this dress, ohh well, least its DP so the manager can't complain today.
Oh and my faithful Tesco bag. Lots of loving right there.
Minimal jewelery,don't wanna get anything caught on the delivery totes.Eeek.

Hope it's not too gloriously warm and sunny today, or the customers are gunna feel a lot of jealousy coming their way!
