California Dreamin’

10 Apr
coachellaa
There’s a lot of things that, as a student, I can’t afford. And apart from steak and champagne, the most upsetting thing beyond financial reach is a golden ticket to Coachella. Every year since I could discern that the Californian desert line up was the ultimate music amalgam to ever exist, I’ve wanted to go. Tomorrow marks the beginning of the first weekend, and again, I won’t be there.
However, I am absolutely adamant that one day, I will. So for that day, here is a collage of the outfits I would wear in that desert among the whisperings and the champagne and the stars.

Things I Literally Need : Sheinside LAME Sweater

26 Mar

lame

Alongside The Burger Connoisseur, “Things I Literally Need” is a new and permanent instalment on my blog.

The thing with fashion is that it is necessary. Sure, you could walk round in bare foot, but it’d hurt right? So we wear shoes. And the truth of the matter is, why would you wear shapeless, shuffly flats when there are things such as Isabel Marant Dicker boots and Valentino RockStud flats available for our feet? Food for thought.

This sweater is from Sheinside.com and it’s only £11. That, my friends, is a week of okay food for one, or a lifetime of being able to wear a sweater that says ‘Lame’ on it in inappropriate situations (such as exams). Your choice.

I Woke Up Like This

11 Mar

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

When you wear a T-shirt that brashly says “I Woke Up Like This”, you’d think that it would be the focal point of your outfit. But I hate rules, so I threw out the rulebook and on this coat. Oh, this coat. It’s from ASOS but I got it on eBay which of course means that I got it half price. It’s in mint condish apart from a rip on the inner lining which no one will ever see unless they get up close and personal to my armpit.

I think what this T-shirt says more than anything is: hey, I rock and I don’t care if you’re giving me weird evils because of it. I think all clothes should say this. Wear what you want guys, you look fab. Even if maybe okay perhaps you didn’t wake up like this.

OOTD : Burberry Cowgirl

7 Mar

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

She’s a silver lining, lone ranger riding through an open space.

This is one of my favourite ever outfits. It’s like watching The Wolf of Wall Street, eating pizza followed by a cheesecake from the Church Inn in Mobberley and then going and getting cocktails in London with the Arctic Monkeys.That’s how this outfit makes me feel. You can keep your ketamine, because I’m a fashion junkie.

The shirt is an ideal dupe of the IT piece of Burberry FW13 and it was so cheap from the amazing American site: Persun Mall. The shoes? Not as expensive as they look because they were just FIFTEEN pounds from H&M. And that hat. Oh, the hat. If I could write sonnets then all fourteen lines would be dedicated to it. It’s ideal and it’s a tenner. Get it here.

Have a great weekend lovers, and for the love of God see Wolf of Wall Street if you still haven’t.

The Best of the Past Oscars Dresses

2 Mar

I’m waiting (im)patiently for the live Oscars feed to show up something more than a few confused looking journalists talking into their ear pieces and trying to talk to foreign crew members in English. No one of note has turned up yet: they’re clearly all getting last minute manicures/meditation/speech preparation. Here are the best looks from the last forever!

OOTD: Underwear As Outerwear

1 Mar

lingerie2

While we’re all getting excited about FW14, I’m also still enjoying the FW13 trends that have disappeared under the glitter of fashion month’s ever moving cycle. I absolutely adore the lingerie as outerwear that Marc Jacobs sent down his hotel corridor of a catwalk last year in New York and so I’m ignoring the rules of sartorial progress and wearing it still.
