- 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.

fashion trends I will not be wearing: creepers
So right now creepers seem to making an appearance in the fashion world and despite the amount of people that seem to be taking them in their stride (see what I did there?) I will definitely not be seen wearing them this season. I remember seeing them on the backs of vintage store shelves and being completely bemused at the prospect of wearing them, and my feelings have not changed since then. To me they're not attractive and don't fit in with the style of clothes I wear, that being said this doesn't mean that other people can't wear them and rock them. In my opinion it takes the right person with a unique sense of style to pull them off successfully, and that person is not me.
Top to bottom: River Island £30, Jeffrey Campbell $164, Topshop £60, Underground at ASOS £85
A range of high street stores have now started to sell them each varying in price, so if you do fancy getting a pair of creepers there should be some to suit every budget.
