As fashion trends come and go, quicker than… erm, let me think.. That time when Scoobies were the “IT” item at primary school. I never got the swing of them, until the trend had slowly dissolved. That’s how I feel about Mom Jeans. Anyone that knows me will always know my struggle of finding the “perfect pair” and I’m sure many other woman who is pear shaped will share this struggle as well. Why do retailers assume people with a larger bottom half, are going to have a waist to match? When this definitely is not the case!
On a positive note, I FOUND THE PAIR *woop woo*.
A week has passed, a week has passed since my post man was nowhere to be seen with my mass amounts of invitations to LFW.
Non existent invitations more like!
Having said that I have had my time to soak up the glossies and surf the blog-sphere in the venture of finding my favourite trends. I have chosen my three favourite trends from the catwalk and I have picked a few pieces from the high street ready to get your prepped for S/S’17.. Talk about planning ahead!
So ruffles, huge puffy sleeves

Christopher Bailey started the ball rolling for Burberry with ruffled over-sized shirts, they were seen on both the men and the women; looking to the past as an ode to Virginia Woolf’s Orlando (with a copy of the novel left on each guest’s seat). Bailey introduced the collection as “a love letter to the past and to English history and a kind of dressing up box to visit and revisit.”
Inspired the silhouettes created on the catwalk my most recent #ootd on my Instagram shows a chunky belt to cinch in at the waist and creates a more masculine texture with the clash the feminine silhouette. In the winter it would follow with a long line coat (video to come soon!) which would add androgynous vibes this is iconic in reflecting British style for Burberry.
I am someone that doesn’t always abide by the rules; and by that I don’t mean any ground-breaking criminal activity. One being trying to take a photo when it says “no photography allowed.” For once I understood the rule. Why ruin this exhibition for anyone? Why should I ruin the hard work of six years curating the exhibition and the 100 years of Vogue itself?
All I can do is simply recommend to high heavens for you to see this exhibit.
Enough about my guilt ridden tendencies…
This exhibition should be devoured by all. Whether you think fashion is somewhat a mimsy subjective thing and you are oblivious to the fact fashion and filters an element of your day.

One thought I had when I left the exhibition was…What potential does Vogue have over the next 100 years? It is truly remarkable how they have set the standard and influenced cultural trends and lets face it they set the bar for the “cover girl”. Continue reading
Oh sorry Sir, sorry it’s late… I was held up.
Probably the most miscellaneous & unphotogenic favourites post known to man kind.
– I mean how do you photography recovery software for an SD card?

I am always one for turning negatives into positives… more like always justifying my reason for spending or hoarding. I cleared out my wardrobe the other night in what I can now say I feel like a new woman. How does one collate so much?
I rekindled my love this kimono, thankfully it never left the “selling bag”. After some unexpected spending habits February has been an expensive month. I am withholding from future apparel and food buys and restricting to what can only be necessities. This means “shopping my wardrobe” I have so many clothes, I am in the process of thinking of new ways to style them rather than find an excuse of my lunch break to fall in to the devil-some ways of Oxford Street.
