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.

dressy denim

all from Topshop
If I had a hefty amount of money that I could spend freely, this is how it would be spent. I really love the idea of pairing skinny jeans with heels to create a more 'dressy' outfit, which is mainly due to my favouritism towards jeans over any other leg ware. Usually in the summer I would wear a plain white vest with denim, so I thought why not jazz up the white vest a little, add some heels and perhaps a blazer to make it slightly more suitable for going out in. To some this outfit may seem quite casual and something to wear in the daytime but as someone who practically lives in jeans and converse this is rather formal. I would definitely feel more comfortable in this then in a dress. I wasn't going to include the blazers but I decided to in the end, I wouldn't necessarily pair them like that, I would most likely switch them around as they each go with both of the outfits (I hope that made sense). Anyway, I should really start my psychology essay and then delve into the industrial revolution (not literally, I'm just doing art history).

plain and simple OOTD

cardigan; Primark, top & belt; Topshop, jeans; H&M
I actually wore this outfit just over a week ago but forgot to upload it, so here it is now better late than never. I realise it isn't the most exciting outfit I've ever worn, but I just wanted to wear something super simple without looking too boring. Anyway, I do love wearing black. Today was my first day back after half-term (which in my opinion wasn't long enough)and I must say the amount of work that needs to be done is very overwhelming. In other news my cousin is living in London, even though it is only short term, and I am very excited to see him as I haven't seen him for months and months. So on Sunday we're meeting up, which means I need to fork out money for a train/tube ticket and lunch, which wouldn't normally be a problem but I am desperately trying to save for numerous things. These being my summer holiday, general university life and the ever increasing list of things I need to buy for university, as well as a few other insignificances.I fear a second job may be required.

a boyish outfit of the day

shirt; Forever21, jeans & top; Topshop, hat; Rokit
I have come to the realisation that I am dressing more and more like a boy. Not that its a totally bad thing, for starters its a lot more practical and keeps me warm during these cold winter months, plus I feel more comfortable and cosy in a pair of jeans, baggy tee and boots/converse. I have just noticed that my hair looks rather blonde in these photos which is odd because its really not in real life. Sorry about the shortness of this post, I'm tired and really wanted to upload this before I went to bed. Good night internet.

action movies I shall be watching

So I don't usually sit down to watch an action movie as it is simply not my kind of film, however after watching these trailers I shall definitely be indulging in the genre. I do admit that perhaps some people may not class these two films as action, but in my mind they definitely have aspects of action in them. Plus, recently I've been getting into the whole fairy tale thing, I'm still dying to see Catherine Breillat's sleeping beauty but I just cannot get my hands on it. I'm also studying Angela Carter right now for my literature coursework and strangely like her feminist fairy tale style stories. In other news, I am going out tomorrow night and have nothing to wear, this is not me being melodramatic, I honestly don't have any 'going out' clothes. Well I have a purple velvet dress but I have over worn that over the past few months. I think the reason behind my lack of 'going out' clothes is due to the fact that I really don't feel comfortable in dresses, which is really something I need to get over.

So, the one monroe top I really really really would love to get my hands on is out of stock. It kinda sucks, I'm not gonna lie (wow my english is lacking in this post so bad). In other news, Tesco has no white chocolate buttons. I mean what is the world coming to aye?
