BAD ROMANCE?

VALENTINO
Haute Couture Collection
Fall 2010



"The dark side of first love. The contradictory and elusive charm, aggressive and romantic, seductive and destabilizing. So characteristic of today's women"

MISS NOTHING, MISS EVERYTHING

Despite everything going pretty perfectly at the moment (bar all my beloved friends leaving!) I'm already missing summer & know i'm going to miss it like a bitch as time goes on.
It was like a surreal, beautiful dream..
To re-live it would be amazing.

BRAVE NEW GIRL


Been a busy week!

Started my college, I am now officially a Fashion student! Wheeeeeeeeeey 8)!

This first week has just been settling in and getting to know people.

The real work starts on Monday!

But got to make paper dresses!

This is the dress I made with my new friend Nicola :D

Turned out pretty awseome and was really fun to make!

Everyone seems really nice, can tell i'm going to love it!



On Thursday the whole art college went to Mablethorpe to make sand-scultpures.

Not really much fashion based that can be done there, so it was more of a 'bonding trip' for us.

Got teamed up with some second years who seems pretty cool. Was good just to get socialising a bit more!

This is our sand pyramid/crazy golf course that we made!

Also have my new job at Blue Salamander!

Everyone is so nice there, really liking it! Much better than working at Clarkes!

It's like I have a whole new life!!

READ MY MIND

I have a hell of a lot to post about my summer wardrobe!!
It'll be so out of date!
I'll start with these.
Aviators from Topman
£15
Waaaaaaaaaay better than any of the womens ones I found in Topshop!
and cheaper too!
My friend Harry had a pair & knew I had to get some!
They're a bit bent and battered now from various summer antics & due to lack of a decent case!
But they look the part!
Hell of a lot ceaper than a Rayban pair!

AVIATE ME?

I want an aviator jacket sooooo badly!!
Tried on the one above in Oasis today! Looked saweeeeeet!
£150 though!

Burberry

This ASOS one looks really good! However, I am skeptical to the quality of ASOS's graments...

Not sure it's worth the what they price it at.

Material is usually of poor quality from my past experience.

But the detailing on this jacket looks really nice!! Just how i'd like it!

May give it a bash....

LEEDS HIGHLIGHTS


Had another amazing year at Leeds!
For me the lineup wasn't as appealing as other years, but I still loved it!
Brilliant way to celebrate the end of school and say goodbye to friends.


My favourites were...


BLINK 182!
(Travis' drum solo - immense!!)
Mumford & Sons
(Sounded amazing! & had so much fun jigging around with randomers!)
Weezer
Limp Bizkit
Biffy Clyro
The Maccabees
Lostprophets
(Although the crowd seemed to be asleep!!)

Silent disco was awesome! Spent hours in there on the first night!
Soooo much fun!

Last but not least, eating Crepes (Craps) with Bex! ...as pictured below!
Chocolate everywhaaaar!

I'LL FIND STRENGTH IN PAIN

Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay!
Everything is starting to fall b-e-a-utifully into place!
Didn't get the B I needed in my AS art to get onto the Foundation Art and Design course I had applied for. Fortunately I applied for a National Diploma in Clothing and Fashion the other day. Suddenly got woken with a phone call this morning asking me to come in for an interview.
and BOOM! I have a place :D
It means another two years in Lincoln, but the course is perrrrfect!
Can't wait! Enrol tomorrow and start on monday :)
Happy Happy Happy!
