_HOH Tights

Check these out!!!Henry Holland for Pretty Polly.


This is a box that Rory's mum made me for my 20th birthday. This is definitely the best present I've ever had! It is so creative and personal. On it are a variety of Westwood prints. It makes a beautiful jewellery box!


Madonna! My all time fave icon and singer. I love this photo, I found this A5 postcard in a vintage shop and I snapped it up quick!! She wears a black top and her skirt is Westwood McLaren from their Witches collection of' '83, and apart from that her arms are covered in bracelets, love the over accesorizing!

_Exhibition Heaven

Just found out about this exciting new exhibition that will be opening on the 18th September at London's Somerset House, what a lovely venue... hosting it is SHOWstudio, the exhibition is called SHOWstudio: Fashion Revolution, check it out here...


This is a print called 'I am Expensiv" from Innocent SS07. It is one of my favourite prints so my boyfriend, Rory, printed it digitally on canvas and mounted it on a stretcher. The print was used to flood the garments and specific designs were taken out and used individually, such as 'AR' which has been imprinted on a pin broach, and sold exclusively from World's End.


These are definately high up on my favourite things, my shoesies, and boots. I have a little bit of an obsession, and as you can see its with Westwood shoes in particular! I am very excited about another pair which i have ordered for S/S '10 I'll see if I can find a photo for you...

This photo is from the A/W09 Gold Label Collection,it is called +5˚. They have done the same boots in a different colourway for S/S10, the sandle part is navy blue leather and the material part is white cut and slashed canvas, AMAZING! Can't wait for those babies!

Here's a pic of my cape, the model on this catwalk (above) is wearing it round her neck, its my first A/W buy, This is one of my favourite pieces from the collection.


Here are my hat boxes which were a present to me from my boyfriend. I have always loved hat boxes and apart from being a good home to my many head-scarfs and hats, they also look really nice as an object, stacked up in a corner of your bedroom! They are from a little gem of a shop,i've never been able to go to, but in September im finally able to and i'll document it with lots of phots for you to see. The shop is called Seaman's in Rugby, its a bit of an antique /auctioneers shop which accumulates its stock from house clearances of big estates in the country. I CANNOT wait to finally go and find lots of goodies!


Right so i'm finally writing my first post, and after a little deliberation about the name of my blog, i've finally got it started!!! I want it to be a mix of selected fashion related culture and a sort of personal diary in which i document interesting places i go, or things i see. I'm going to begin with posting my 5 fave things, it will give you an introduction to me and my life!
