About Me

My photo
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.

weekends and weekdays

So on Saturday I went to Nottingham, but being the forgetful person that I am, I forgot to take my camera. I know, I know, I'm a bit useless sometimes. I also forgot to photograph my outfit which was a shame because I really liked it. Anyway, the uni was okay, I don't hate it but I don't love it either, not much more I can say about that. After looking round the uni I went for a wander round Nottingham centre, mainly just the shops really as it is quite a big place and my feet were tired. There is quite a nice assortment of shops there ranging from low end high street to designer and I also managed to find some cute and quirky shops and vintage stores. I got an odd vibe from when wondering around so I'm not completely sure about my views on the place as a whole. It didn't help that there was a fight between the football supporters at the station. It's difficult as that could potentially be my home for the next 3 years of my life.

Kicking myself for not remembering to go into Selfridges to check out the new Monki stock there. It bugs me that you can't order online at Monki as I adore their clothes so much. Weekday is also another store I would love to purchase some clothes from but unless they open up a store in England I shan't be able to. However I still looked on their website and did some wishing, and here is what I am loving right now from them. I really would love a pair of chelsea boots, but quite a manly structured pair, so these Monki ones fit the bill nicely. The selection here sums up what I like right now; simple good quality clothes that work well together. I love to just through on a jumper over a shirt and be done, it's so classic and fuss free.

simply smart

Shirt; Bershka, skirt; H&M, shoes; Topshop
Currently I am very uninspired which I put down to the immense amount of stress that has been put on me recently from school. So, unfortunately this is affecting the blog, I just simply can't think of anything to write so I feel it better not to write at all. However, I do have an outfit post to show you, albeit rather plain and boring. I love the smart look right now, and as a result have acquired a reasonable amount of shirts resulting in this look. Not much to say about it really. I do really love my new shoes though, how could I have lived this long without owning a pair of brogues!

easily found

This past week has been rather busy! Firstly I have had to do lots of work for art which involved starting a new project and finishing off another (I still haven't finished what I was meant to). I also had to take Bonzo to the vets which was a bit of hassle, but I won't go into that. Then Friday my friends had a joint 18th party, Saturday I had work, then on Sunday I went shopping. So I have got lots of goodies to show you from my trip.

H&M - Blue Jumper £14.99, burnt orange/red shirt £9.99, skirt £3.99
Forever 21 - check shirt £16.75, necklace £3.90
Topshop - Bruce t-shirt £22, black leather brogues £30
I sort of went a bit mad and spent quite a bit of money, but it isn't something I do very often so I will forgive myself for parting with most of my money. I wanted some new pieces just to spruce up my wardrobe as I felt a bit uninspired with the clothes I have at the moment. I think now is a lovely time to go shopping as all the stores have just put out their autumn stock. I partly went shopping just to check the new Forever 21 store on Oxford Street, and I must say that it is amazing! It is super big and is decorated beautifully, I know a few people have said that the clothes aren't that great but I really liked the selection they had there. So, if you haven't been already, go check out the new Forever 21.
