Summer Shopping Inspiration

I feel like i'm building up to a mahoosive (yes i know that's not a word as I have been told many times before) shopping splurge. I love this picture from chanel:

I love the contrast of the luxurious, girly, OTT clothes and the haybale setting. I can't put my finger on what it is about this mix that I love (methinks I really need to improve my ability to put my thoughts into words if I am to pass GCSE english) but it has something to do with what I said in my post about individuality; if you saw this girl checking into a five star hotel then I would probably assume her to be some kind of royalty, (and without meaning to offend anyone who dresses like this because I personally love this look and I am merely trying to illustrate my point about the contrast, in a very roundabout and offensive way) someone who would pull out a diamond encrusted bottle of hand sanitizer if she came into contact with another human being. But by setting the picture on top of a haybale my whole opinion of this woman is changed and the look seems much more wearable and fun- which is just what fashion should be! Gonna be looking for lots of lace and jewells when I hit the shops-YAY!

New dress

Ok, I admit, this is quite a bad photo, but my camera is being wierd, so this is your lot for now, maybe i'll get a better picture to put up tomorrow. Anyways, this is kinda where my style is at at the moment. I bought the dress a couple of days ago (a bargain at half price) and i'm totally in love with it; it's all lacey and pretty and yummy! But I wanted to add a twist to the rather girly dress (not that girly is bad), so I wore it with neon pink tights, my iced gem earings and top hat hairclip. I think this is my favourite thing to experiment with at the minuite, lace in neutral shades, with a flash of colour to give the outfit a pop. Well thats all for now, tell me what you think.

On individuality

I didn't really know what to write about for my first proper post, ive been told that I should tell you guys something that i'm passionate about. So here we go, the best thing about fashion: can you guess (you didn't think i would just tell you did you?), oh ok fine, my favourite thing about fashion is that it's an opportunity to be an idividual, to express yourself, to show who you really are. You can make a different statement about your personality just by changing your jacket. So just be yourself, don't follow the crowd; who cares about the stares (oooh I rhymed), enjoy the limelight, because know one can tell you who you are. Don't get me wrong, I love finding out about the latest trends, and i love wearing them even more, but fashion is more than that, so add your own twist and DO NOT let people put you down for it. :)
