in the strangest of places

I never normally look to Will Smith films for fashion inspiration but hot damn the fashion in this film has been overlooked- Tea Leoni plays badass Julie and her wardrobe is SIICCCkkk. Best boots ever. kickass jewellery. striped dress. shortest skirts. and attitude too boot.

Hope you everyone had an awesome christmas, mine was spent in the sunshine-a first for me- lounging by the pool and eating seafood. bliss.

if i were joking

Still hanging out in Australia, kicking back at the beaches day or night and soaking up the summer sun. These photos were taken way over a month back when we were on the Gold Coast- i'm seriously behind with posting stuff. These days you can find me in the Whitsundays until January when we head to MELBOURNE. Seriously excited. Hit me up with any tips or places I should check out whilst I'm there.

the end of the day when the birds come out to sing

Didn't have the internet for a while including over my birthday so couldn't skype my parents back home in London which really sucked, so instead had to stick to the conventional method of the telephone. However I am back on line now catching up with my emails, another year older.

These photos were taken a few weeks back in Broadbeach on the Gold Coast in Queensland, my Mum said to me the other day that in all the photos I'm always wearing black so here I am again Mum in all black true to form. It's a hard habit to break.

shake shake shake shake shake shake it

I think wildfox rocks, i always love their look-books, they represent the clothes so well. The girls in the photos look like they are having a blast, makes me wanna buy into this stuff. Wildfox does it what it does and it does it well! I find myself wearing black quite a lot, black white and leopard print. But today i am in the mood for colour so am gonna locate my inner wildfox and rock out.

walk in the woods

For the last two and half weeks I have been in Australia neglecting this blog, instead I have been posting on my other blog COCONUT TRAVELS. But alas I have returned to my beloved blog and here is a snippet of my spring time sunshine. I am seriously gutted about this long black dress I am wearing here because it seems to have shrunk in the wash, I have since fallen out with the washing machine who's fault it is because obviously it is not mine.

You give a little love and it all comes back to you la la la lala la la You know youre gonna be remembered for the things that you say and do

Both my friend Katie and I are leaving London and going on our respective travels, she leaves tomorrow and I leave in 2 weeks. So Saturday night we went out to the bars we used to hang out in when we were 18.
We had half the dancefloor to ourselves and we danced danced danced to the old skool garage and songs fro different movies, when a song from Bugsy Malone came on Hayley and I danced our little socks off. It was a classic night and one for the history books.

shout out to charotte, immense love

This shirt belongs to my best friend Charlotte who has just set up what will be an awesome blog. She spent the summer in Ibiza and got back about 12 days ago and in18 days i head to Australia so trying to soak up as much time as i can with her. We met on the first day at uni (along with two other of my best friends Anna and Albertine) she had this amazing Mochino white sheer shirt with blue polka dots and a braid in her hair and we have been inseparable since, including living together for a short while which meant sharing a bed and me forcing her her to get up in the morning so we wouldn't be late for uni, she did my laundry and i made her breakfast it was a sweet deal. love you chick and i promise to return this short soon along with all the other shit I have borrowed!

I tried to give my nails a week free of nail polish. it sucked.

Managed to see the future classics show at London Fashion Week, love this stripey number. There was some awesome jersey pieces like these spats. I have had a look through some of the shows on but I think overall NYFW impressed me more as a whole although there were some individual standouts at LFW. I'm watching the city and just noticed Olivia is wearing a dress that I own, which is kinda surprising as our style is pretty different

*****dont know why the pictures i had posted of future classics aren't showing....*********

armpit hair

so its not new but im rubbish at posting often
Unfortunately i am not in new york at fashion week like some other bloggers, but i hope to check out some of london fashion week. As always i adore Alexander Wang's new collection, seriously made me wanna go out and buy a khaki, grey and tan ensemble. I am now gonna try and locate that tan leather skirt my mums friend gave me and make it into a mini. I have been casually seasrching for an army style jacket for a while but i think i am going to try a little harder now, although im pretty sure it would be surplus to requirements whilst im in OZ. I also fell pretty hard for Erin Wassons x RVCA collection, so stoked that she actually had a catwalk show this time, her collection much like her own sense of style captures that casual rock aesthetic. VPL and Nicole Miller had some gorgeous pieces in their respective collections, both strong simple silhouettes. Charlotte Ronson did a killer collection with some mesh legging/shorts which im pretty certain will be copied. BCBG produced some desirebly jersey dresses with beautiful draping, mesh inserts and flashes of sequins. check out for all the shows, knighttcat, le fashion and various other blogs are doing their own highlights.

coconut ice cream

black tshirt American apparel Sexuality T, boob tube dress worn as skirt american apparel, wedges faith, vintage backpack

Maybe one of the last days of english summer consisted of smoothies and sunbathing, barbecue and comfy separates from trusty american apparel and then a hunt for a bounty ice cream. I am addicted to coconut, i like to smell like a coconut.

I think i just ruined a pair off levi cut offs. crap crap.

this ones for you lion man

pc from top Danielle Scutt SS08 collection (amazing collection i still want it all), Christopher Kane (available net-a-porter), Christopher Kane for Topshop, Me in Zara.

Have a thing for animal print, whether its the face of a gorilla, a tiger or indeed leopard print. I'm not sure when this obsession started but over the years it has never died. Was mega excited when i saw that Kane was doing another collection for Topshop..even more so when i saw this t dress a cheaper version of the infamous gorilla stuff. but whilst waiting looking for a starbucks the other day i stumbled into Zara and nearly keeled over when i saw this tiger face tee, it's digitally printed which i know first hand can be mega bucks (although i guess a huge chain like zara have their own machinery), when i looked at the tag and saw £16 i freaked! It now belongs to me, and I have to say Zara has been kicking ass recently, i got some snakeskin print pants in the sale (which i need to take in cos not quite skinny in the leg enough for me-no one likes a baggy knee) and seen some killer on trend pieces. In the words of cher in clueless 'I don't trust mirrors' so am always snapping away in changing rooms (dunno what i would do without a camera phone) I had planned to take some better photos to post but not been feeling well this week so haven't got round to it, and wanted to share my find with you guys before the tiger tee's all sell out. If your not familiar with Danielle Scutt you should seriously check out her shit, the SS08 collection is one of my all time favourites, each piece is wearable whilst still being unique. I bought a Tshirt dress about a year or so ago from her collaboration with Topshop which has a snake printed on it. ( I also bought a silk top with zebras all over it from Topshops collab with Emma Cook!!!)

animal instinct

trainer wedges kate kuba, black slip m&s, leopard print sheer shirt charity shop, vintage bangle

i find that however bulging my closet may be i get always go back to the same basics, and have my safety outfits when i cant decide what to wear. I bought this shirt recently for £4 in a cancer research store and teamed it with my favourite black slip, and it's fast becoming a regular on the outfit rotations; i guess it doesn't help that my boyf lives about an hour and a half on the train from me so I am constantly living out a large bag, with half my clothes overtaking his room and half in mine.

How awesome is this zebra wall?!

cuffed off

pc litter sf, fashion toast, stylecaster

i wear a silver earcuff everyday, but have been searching for bigger earcuff for quite a while, i have found some amazing ones that connect to a piercing in the lobe but im actually allergic to earrings (the traditional ones that go through pierced ears) so i will continue my search. but heres to all you earring makers please make some amazing aer cuffs with the chains and shit but that don't require pierced ears. eternally grateful. or if any of you know what im looking for hit me up. in such a bad mood right now.

i have a preference

clothes american apparel (since the first aa store opened in london years back i have been addicted to the comfy staples) rings gifts from the bf or market purchases, the silver with turq and red jasper in my left hand was the present my boyf bought me for our anniversary its from the mexican vintage. i adore it. the skull necklace was a gift from my friends boyfriend- he's a jewelerry designer find his stuff here the other is vintage.

yesterday's weather was freaking awesome. it was hottttttttttttttttttt, perfect summer dayspent with one of best friends in the whole world jessica drinking frappachino's in the park and then onto beer and chocolate int the evening. London doesn't always have that great weather, i'm such a sun baby so one day i plan to live near the beach in the sunshine. i always bought my friend loza a skirt for her birthday, its a little floral number that i really wanted to keep for myself!!!

dunno what the fuck is up with my slr camera its never used to be grainey like this, have no clue what i have done to it but if anyone has a clue please let me know its making me super sad.
