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.

you think I'm so caught up

jumper; H&M, skirt; Zara, belt; Topshop, shoes; Newlook
This is such a lazy post, even the name is lazy (I'm listening to drake right now and couldn't think of anything else). I have been temporarily absent recently, not entirely sure why, I think its just numerous things that have added up leaving me with no time or energy. However, today I broke up from sixth for two weeks which I am so relieved about as I'm just so tired. This does mean that I will be taking a trip to Exeter as per usual when I'm on brake. I leave tomorrow afternoon after work which will be a slight rush but I don't mind as it means I get to go to the seaside sooner. I have banned myself from going shopping whilst I'm there as I really need the money for other more important things, this ban is not a new thing I enforced it quite a while ago. This is one of the reasons for my lack of outfit posts, I'm just wearing the same clothes all the time so there's nothing new to show you guys. Anyway, I may blog while I'm away but I can't promise anything, so if not I shall be back Easter Sunday.

my love affair with a high street giant

all available from mango.com
I was flicking through a well known fashion magazine and saw so many lovely pieces from Mango, and as a result have now fallen in love with their clothing. I was always aware of them but their clothes never really caught my eye, in fact the last time I went into one of their stores was about two years ago. However, two years ago I was a very different person in the way I dressed whereas now my style has matured more and I'm a bit more sure of myself. That having been said jumpers and jeans seem to take over my daily wardrobe, and that does shine through in the selection I picked out. I can't help feeling that the jumper with the arrows on looks rather familiar (ahemRIVERISLANDahem).The skull print shirt would definitely look wonderful peeping out of a simple jumper.

an evening at Loch Fyne

top; Oasis, shirt, jeans & necklace; Topshop, shoes, Newlook
First things first, I got the grade I needed in my psychology exam! I'm so relieved, as it means that I'm one step closer to getting into uni. Moving on, I have decided to do a slightly different outfit post today. Well, its not that different, I've just added some photos of where I actually went wearing the outfit. It was a wonderful night and I must say it was one of the finest meals I have ever eaten, definitely a good way to celebrate my friend's 18th birthday. I haven't really got much to say right now which I apologise for, I'm just so tired but really wanted to get this post up. I'm going to love you and leave you as I'm off to watch towie (don't judge).
