California Dreamin’

10 Apr

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.

OOTD: Céline-a-Like Skater Shoes

25 Feb

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAIf you hadn’t already noticed from my ‘Student Swap’ series, I’m a sucker for designer imitations (that’s imitations folks, not counterfeit) so when Emma Hill of EJ Style quite sensibly pointed out that these ‘Celine’ skater shoes were going on ASOS at an intensely attractive £18, I was immediately taken in by the materialistic and vain yet necessary desire for them. Here I am wearing them in Lincoln, where I attracted a lot of attention from the main road. It’s as though the people of Lincoln have never seen a photoshoot before! oh, wait…**

Yesterday was my friends’ joint birthday party and Beth and I spent most of the day helping them prepare for it. For Beth, this meant blowing up so many balloons that we feared aneurism. For me, this meant joyfully ripping up my old magazines and creating this wall piece. I love doing stuff like this. I’m destroying to create; taking all of my internal inspiration and throwing it out onto the wall like an interior design mind map. I’m going to be doing it in my room shortly, and I’ll post pictures if people express interest!

What does one wear to party plan? The real question was: what does one choose to look like when one party plans, and as you can probably tell, I chose a marshmallow.

Coat – Miss Selfridge

Tee – Zoe Karssen at Selfridge’s

Outside Sofa c/o Jon and Matt’s ‘genius’ smoking area idea.

P.S.

I hope you know about the abomination that is Russia’s new bill. It states that those members of the LGBT community are banned from showing their love for each other in public. This is partly due to the current Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics and Russia’s bizarre desire to keep ‘nontraditional sexual relations’ hidden, though anti-gay propaganda is still rife in the country anyway, with many violent crimes taking place against the LGBT community.

Lush are fronting a campaign in which a photographic petition consisting of people wearing the pink triangle (the sign of love) on their person is sent to the Russian Embassy on Valentine’s Day next week. Below is mine and Beth’s contribution. Think of it as a bit of a ‘fuck you’ to Vladimir Putin.
