If you follow me on instagram then you'll know that 2 weeks ago I went to Berlin with my family. It was a present from my wonderful parents as my sister turned 18 and I turned 21, so quite big and significant birthdays!
I love seeing blog posts on places people have visited as it gives me so much inspiration but I'm so awful at writing about places / my travels so I thought I would just collate a load of images I took on my 35mm film camera and share it that way. It was my first time using the camera so I'm still learning and getting to grips with it (even if it is just a point and shoot) but it's something I want to work on and get better at!
I also shared a fair few photos on instagram so check those out too if you haven't already (shameless self promo).
Also I apologise now if you can't read my writing, my best friend can't so you wouldn't be the first!
If you want anymore information then give me an email (address is to the right) or send me a message on instagram or twitter!
Here I am with a quick post featuring the most amazing dungarees that I bought way back in January and have only just got round to posting.
Dungarees : Beyond Retro
Jumper : New Look
CDG Converse : Dover Street Market
I've always had a full 'head over heels' love for dungarees but have never found the right ones; they're either too big, too small, not the right wash and so on and so forth (I'm a very fussy shopper believe it or not). After heading to Beyond Retro which conveniently is only down the road from my flat, I found these beauties. To say I stood in the changing rooms really debating whether I should actually buy them sounds really stupid as I can't wait to wear them all the time once the weather warms up.
Of course I'm gonna have to give a special shoutout to these CDG x Converse. I bought these the day they were released as an early birthday present to myself so they're totally justified. Plus they're converse so they already go with everything in my wardrobe, ever.
I'm totally feeling the whole spots and stripes together. The start of a pattern clash love affair?
I miss being creative at uni and although collaging isn't my forty, I love putting a collection of photos together to creative a mood and emotion.
This one is a start towards my final year collection ideas. It's a long while away and there's time for my thoughts to change but for the moment this is where my inspirations lie.
Mixing soft, feminine fabrics and silhouettes with masculine, classic tailoring. The WW2 is a huge inspiration with it's function over form characteristics and highly practical pockets, fastenings and fabric choices.
Mixing this with modern pieces and ideas makes for an innovative collection.
