My much loved oversized denim jacket.
Charlie is the greatest poser in the world.
Some sort of Vegeterian Turkish Salad.
I had to enrol for my course yesterday & my lovely friend Charlie said she would come with me so we both had a nice little day out in London. We visited Topshop & Urban Outfitters on Oxford St plus Beyond Retro which was around the corner. We then spent a good few hours in Camden & i tried this Turkish Salad, which was quite nice. Had a browse in a few Vintage Stalls there & some Gothy ones as i really want a pair of Creepers! After we had a stroll around Covent Garden which i always think is such a pretty area! Checked out Rokit but i couldn't see much that i needed from there just stuff i wanted, like jumpers with kittens on. I only actually got one thing that day which was a lovely Cath Kidston Bag for Uni, therefore now i want to fill it with much more Cath Kidston stuff especially the wonderful vintage floral flask for tea! Lastly we had a walk along Southbank which is where most of these photographs come from!

Hello. I hope everyone is having a lovely weekend. This is what i wore to work today. The dress is from Forever 21, i really adore the colour & i think it will look lovely in the winter! :) Here again is my favourite studded leather jacket! I find that it goes so well with everything.
I'm so excited to have nearly 5 days off work this week & i have some very exciting things coming up. I'm going to London on Wednesday to enrol on my course at the wonderful LCF! The past few weeks i have been really nervous about starting my course, being in London & at LCF but now i'm so excited. I really can't wait. Luckily my lovely friend Charlie said she would come to London with me on Wednesday so hopefully we will both take some photographs to put up.

Hello Hello. I have been going lookbook crazy this week as i have had the spare time. Here above is my fabulous Barbie Tshirt that was from Topshop a couple of years ago. I actually adore anything that has barbie on it..i don't know why. My inner child i guess.
Then here is a fabulous Nautical Jumper that i found at a Jumble Sale for 10p. Amazinggg. Jumble Sales can be fabulous.
Anyway i hope everyone is having a good evening. I have to work over the weekend but shall be having a drink or two & a boogie tomorrow night! I hope to take some photographs of whatever dress i shall be wearing.

This year i have become very confident with my body shape & that i no more wanted to be 'skinny'. My hourglass curves were fading & i felt very unwomanly. Since i have surrounded myself with more positive influences i feel lovely. As i have been becoming ever more obsessed with Vintage, i adore the idea of being a 'pin up' or vintage model! Especially after winning a competition in Vintage Life Magazine it's given me a boost!
So the other night i remembered Suicide Girls who are a lovely group of alternative models of all different shapes, sizes & looks..i have adored them since the age of 14. Anyway i thought i might apply & see if i would be any good & i got through the first part of the application! :) So now i have to send in a set of photographs but i have as long as i need to do so to make it perfect & hopefully be accepted. I'm now currently looking for inspiration from the past especially images of Bettie Page & Gil Elvgren art!

My 3 yr old sister wanted to take a photo of me so here it is. ^
Hawaiian Shirt from Rokit Vintage at Covent Ggarden!
Me today. Lovely hot day & had not yet had the chance to wear this dress. It's covered in Lemons & it's quite like a 50's style dress. The only annoying thing about this beautiful dress is the fact that it flattens my top half alot yet it goes in perfectly at the waist. My sis said i got alot of 'looks' from the opposite sex so yay i guess?
Me & my sister Chumia also went to London on Wednesday. I got a couple of things which i shall pop up soon. xx
