The Fab 4


2012 is upon us and the fear if we'll make it through the next 11 months is a daunting prospect.

Do we splurge all our hard earned student loans on looking fab over the next two seasons or do we invest in key Primarni pieces and ogle at the merchandising of Topshop, Kurt Geiger and Urban Outfitters?

Our current uni project is a class magazine focusing on the theme of 'diversity,' and to be ''published'' in 2013...if we make it.
One of the shoots i'm doing is an accessory shoot based on the 4 elements; air, water, fire and earth, a feature of our 'Rebirth' theme.

Here's a sneak preview of what is yet to come...

Today i am a sheep

Today i am wearing a bargain jumper - 40% wool don't you know.
I find myself turning my nose up at anything that looks warm and cosy but is actually 100% synthetic. Not in a pompous manor FYI.

Jumper £15 STING at Westfields shopping centre in Stratford, Laaaandan.
Trilby £12 Forever 21
Vintage Scarf - Christmas gift from the bestie ( blogspot; Footwears)

Popped to the big city to see my cousin for a hint of christmas shopping, window shopping, idea hunting.
We both had a pretty successful evening, rummaging for NYE sparkle and christmas glamour. I came back to the coast with this wooly jumper from STING, a plum trilby, gold sequin skirt, metallic top (as seen in Metallic Madness) a 'joke' LOVE LIFE tee all courtesy of Forever 21 accomanied by a belly full of fine wine and good food.

My wardrobe 1 - 0 Christmas Shopping

Post festive season, i am still snuggling down in this oatmeal delight however, the bobbling has got a bit extreme and it has sadly become a frequent hibernator in my art deco cocktail cabinet...student make shift wardrobe.

Playful Pastels

Pretty pastels and ladies in lace are rarely easy on the eye - in my opinion. However whilst dipping into the generic online high street stores, i discovered a new found love. a passion for pastels.
Topshop have a fabulous array of early SS12 pastels on show which can be easily adopted and introduced into even the most urban jungles of personal style.

This season, i'll be pinning my peepers open for hints of orange sorbet, meadow lilac and powder mint to accent vanilla pod creams and summer fate pinks...
