Source: All, Military Jacket Mango via Asos

Mango is not usually one of my immediate go-to's when I reach for my mouse and delve into the world of online shopping. However, having recently spotted some boots that tickled my fancy (above) I thought I'd have a browse, and boy was I surprised. The Autumn/Winter Collection had an array of pieces that were not only bang-on for the new season but much more reasonably priced than I had imagined. I am in love with the denim smock dress and military jacket (which seems to be stocked on Asos and yet not the Mango site). Student loan can't come soon enough but I'll have to be even more selective as usual; I have a feeling final year projects are going to be expensive.

Hey girl, hey boy

Trousers: Zara
Shirt: Three Floor
Brogues: H&M
Bag: Zara

When the nerdy androgynous looks walked down the runways in preparation for Autumn/Winter it was all I could do not to hibernate until September came around. Collared shirts and brogues have been a long term feature in my wardrobe and this year they're making the big time. Couple these with a pair of ankle grazers and some geek glasses for the finishing touches and you'll be making a statement that even the boys over at DSquared2 would be proud of.

Zara loves film

This A/W, models of the moment Cara Delevigne and Freja Beha star as Zara take their first notable delve into the world of fashion and film. Worth a watch.

Print me a pretty picture

A great admirer of the likes of Mary Katrantzou and Peter Pilotto; the modern day giants of digital print; I'm not usually one to don such pieces myself. Lately however I find myself adding more and more printed items to my ASOS 'Save for later' basket and pinterest boards. Whether or not my latest obsession will stand the test of time in my ever-changing mind it is yet to be decided so I won't go splurging on anything too outrageous yet, but a little colour never hurt anyone right?

Well jel.

So those of you who know me will already be aware that I have not been blessed with good hair genes. The untameable ball of frizz that sits stubbornly upon my head is something that inevitably curses me with incurable hair envy, that is only made worse by hoarding pictures of desirable styles on my pinterest board. These are some ponies that I'm yearning to recreate at the minute.


Oh what I'd give to be Cara Delevigne.

A/W Trend Report 2012

For a recent competition entry for Company magazine, participants were required to produce an A/W12 Trend Report of what we thought would be the key trends for the season. Above is mine, a post about my week at Company will follow soon!


Having heard about the calibre of the Cos summer sale, I had a little look whilst browsing some of my favourites today. It did not disappoint. Here are a few of my picks for the sale, but hurry ladies, they're low in stock so don't hang around!
