D&G in Development

It's probably become fairly clear over the last few years that I'm a massive print-whore. I love big crazy colours on everything and of course Dolce & Gabbana is one of the best brands for this. Also, development models are awesome-looking and totally jealousy-inducing for me.

So here are a few looks you would definitely see me rocking if I had a slightly better wardrobe/infinite ££££ and looked like THIS:

Annie @ IMG Development in black Dolce & Gabbana dress and long sleeved tshirt from Proenza Schouler
Sofia Rivolta @ IMG Development in Dolce & Gabbana maxi skirt, Filles A Papa tshirt and Rick Owens jacket 
Nana Strand @ IMG Development in Dolce & Gabbana skirt and McQ sweatshirt
Until the day that I magically become a super mega rich supermodel though, I'm going to sit here and cry into my empty bank account and alexander mcqueen jumper with newly acquired paint stains (this happens a lot, it's been a long day). Why life?

My song of the week this week is Go by Grimes, enjoy guyss :)

Weekly Inspirations #5

I'm in bed with a hot water bottle right now and it's foggy outside and my life feels like a pale girl tumblr. Speaking of pale girl tumblr, here's my new URL, and here are my weekly inspirations for the week beginning Monday (I've totally lost track of the date).

The Spirit of the Rose at Alexander McQueen AW15

So having the flu meant that I never really left the house over fashion week, but I did get a good look at some of the shows (Simone Rocha, House of Holland and Gareth Pugh). Unfortunately my longterm fave Alexander McQueen managed to slip through my kleenex-clutching fingers, but thanks to the lords of the internet, I got to see it a short while later, and boy was it magnificent.

There was a definite Victorian/Elizabeth I type-thing going on here, what with all the backcombed victorian-spinster-hair a la Miss Havisham. The whole dark, romantic, gothic mood was contrasted with sheer maxi-dresses and cutouts which meshed quite nicely. I've always loved the witchy way of dressing and oh god those maxi dresses. Just. Look.

Sarah Burton, you are God.

My song of the week this week is 27 Club by Chloe Black, enjoy :)

The Pre-Spring 2015 edit

Yes, that is a thing now and no, I probably won't be posting a Spring edit considering it's now (approximately) 10 days until the turn of the season and I'm in bed with some kind of bug and about 12 different 'natural' cold remedies in my system; Hence I have taken to photoshop. 

 My plan for this half term was to be in Paris, with my friends, and fashion week, and lots and lots of Sobranie cigarettes; however it hasn't quite worked out. I'm ill, broke, and I think I've left it too late to book plane tickets. Also I have nothing new to wear apart from a few fur coats, an alexander wang cutout dress which now has chocolate on it (I fell into a chocolate fountain- don't ask) and some vintage Jamie Hewlett tshirts (courtesy of my once-fashionable mother).
 So until I get my life sorted, my half term is going to entail lots and lots (and lots) of blogging.
 I'm done moaning, here's my Pre-Spring Edit:
And all of the pretty things in it, all available at

My song of the week is Break The Rules (Odesza Remix) by Charli XCX, enjoy :)

Well how time flies and suddenly it's been a whole year since my Valentine's Day edit!

I'm now half way through my first year of boarding school, and while I haven't actually done any A-level related work since December (the last time I posted), I did get up to a whole lot of other stuff. I stayed in Chiswick for a week over christmas and recorded a song for Darkspin Records (but more on that later), took a shot at interior design in my apartment and ended up on a spending-spree (I now have a giant polar bear as a bedside table), bleached the ends of my hair to shit and dyed them mermaid blue; and secured my future bankruptcy by investing in a whole new winter wardrobe and a small collection of (vintage, never new) fur coats. Alas, I feel myself slowly transitioning from a lazy teenager into a lazy adult.
Wednesdays forever- TV and booze sesh with Morgana
Anyways, enough about me. I've found a lot of cool things on the magical interwebs this month. Here's a moodboard I made earlier, to illustrate my point and also feelings about my life right now.

From far left: reversible shearling coat from Miu Miu @ Net-a-Porter, cropped floral sweater from MSGM @ Farfetch, rainbow striped skirt from Valentino @ Farfetch, model in sequin cat top by Phiney Pet, catwalk model in Zahia Dehar, girl with plaits and Louis Vuitton handbag from Arvida Bystrom

So let's start with Arvida Bystrom. She's a photography-based artist and model (the one with the pink hair up there ^^^), with an affinity for pastel colours and gradients. Her subjects are babes with pastel-perfect hair, set against a gradient colour backdrop, giving off a type of ethereal serenity that we all crave to possess. Check her out:

Next up is epic lingerie designer Zahia Dehar, a protege of Karl Lagerfeld and the ultimate business role model. Zahia debuted at Paris fashion week, having been exposed in the french press as an underage prostitute, and managed to use her notoriety as a tool for success. I've been obsessed with her SS13 collection since I stumbled upon it 2 years ago, have a looksie:

Last on my moodboard hit-list is Phiney Pet, a London-based womenswear label with childhood nostalgia at its core. Seriously, where can I find this stuff? Cue epic animal illustrations and sequins on EVERYTHING:

Hamma beads on clothes = Life 

This week I recorded a song for my school's student podcast; it's a cover of Youth by Daughter and I had to record it in one take so please bear that in mind as I expose my soul to you across the black void that is the internet.
 Have a good week everybody :)
