- I currently study and live in Birmingham and am in my second year of university, undertaking a degree in media and communication. I used to blog (about fashion, style, clothes etc.) but for various reasons stopped. However, I now find myself at a point where I have more developed and informed opinions on an array of different things, including the fashion industry. This blog is not going to be photos of outfits and clothes, but my view on a multitude of topics surrounding the fashion industry. Fashion is something that I love but as media undergraduate I want to write articles that avoid the wishy washy adoration so commonly reflected in fashion blogs and magazines. It's interesting to look a little further and dig a littler deeper.

lets go together
This has to be one of my favourite outfit combinations, ever. I just love the idea of taking the ultimate girly dress and pairing it with a leather jacket and big bulky biker boots. Personally, I don't like wearing outfits that are overly girly and feminine as I simply don't feel very confident in them. But, taking one or two girly items and putting them with accessories or other pieces of clothing that are quite grungy can give the outfit a completely different look.
I often put masculine jackets/coats over the top of dresses or skirts; a leather jacket is a must. All these jackets are from All Saints, ranging from £147.50 to £395. Obviously jackets are restricted to the cooler months or night time, but a pair of boots can be worn throughout the year, my favourites are my Dr Martens, but all these boots are Kurt Geiger and range from £49 to £190. Lastly, the girly dress. You can get all different kinds of feminine dresses with different cuts and fabrics but my choice is always one made of lace. The first dress is from Warehouse, the second French Connection and the last three are Topshop, ranging from £40 to £110.
