Oh it’s been so long since I’ve made one of these! I miss window shopping on the internet (net-a-porter and Bergdorfs to be specific).
Miu Miu thigh highs
The perfect winter leg warmer!
Wheels and Dollbaby ballet dress
I fell in love with this when my friend Lauren showed them to me and when I saw Amy wear it on ‘So you think you can dance’ I nearly died (in a good way)
D&G chiffon shirt
Grungy and so ladylike at the same time, it looks so wearable.
Christian Louboutin clutch
Ok, so the clutch is ‘so so’ but the clasp is so cute! Look at it! It’s a pair of sky high pumps!
Roberto Cavalli frayed, ruffle front shirt
I adore this! Well I always have a cute shirt on my ‘want list’. I did end up getting one it china but I had a case of ‘shop mirror effect’ (it looks so good when you try it on at the shop and when you bring it home you think “What? Was I blind when I tried it on before?”).
Alice + Olivia bodysuit
I think I’m in love this, I’m not sure if it’ll suit me but I would love to style with this!
Adidas by Stella McCartney
I’m going to start going to the gym as soon as it opens (no seriously, it doesn’t open until late may) and I’ll need gym stuff.
Celine ombré full skirt
Hmmmmmmmm If I can find similar fabric I would seriously make this!
Celine plexi-glass belt
You don’t need an excuse to like this
A great winter ‘pick-me-up’, that persimmon colour is actually one of the bright colours I would wear.
I think the first one is like a cooler version of the Chanel ones. The second is just amazing.
Zac Posen dress
This is actually one of the very, very, very few dresses I liked from this collection.
Christian Louboutin lace platforms
Balmain studded blazer
I would never, ever wear it, in fear of getting it dirty and having to send it off to the dry cleaners. I don’t trust dry cleaners…
Bally t-bar, cross strap, peeptoes
-froths at the mouth- They look sssssssoooooooooooooooooooo good!
Hmm I’m gonna go to bed with a smile on my face. Ah.

So I was 3/4 of the way through my french work (10 pages long, font size 8 and I’ve been at it for 3 hours straight) when I was asked to bring Bianca sewing machine needles. Ha! The perfect excuse for a break (well not really I had to go somewhere before hand anyway) and to photograph Bianca for my pop art assignment! We had been talking about it for 3 weeks but either I was busy or she was busy.
I helped Bianca replace the needle and we just chatted and chatted, well no. Bianca chatted on the phone in search of work experience and I gave her phone numbers and emails. We didn’t get down to the photography part until 4 pm, we quickly snapped some portraits.
These are just some random pictures as my pop art project is a kind of a big deal and I’m not going to spoil it by posting it online until it’s done.
PS. I’ve started designing again! Wohh!

I never would have come across Allie if it wasn’t for MTV’s new oh-so-fake-but-addictive Docodrama ‘the City’. Allie’s the girlfriend of Adam, a male model who’s friends with Jay. She has that alien look that was ‘in’ 2 seasons ago but wow! She’s got the perfect look of high fashion modeling looks but commercial appeal. Despite how skinny she is she actually has boobs *shock, horror* well Lara Stone(r) doesn’t count, she walks funny.
She’s one of those models that look good when she’s not modeling as well.
She’ll soon replace Olivia as my favourite from ‘the City’, I feel sorry for her, she get treated so badly by her on and off boyfriend Adam. Just to get it out there, I think Adam’s a whore!

This took me so long because I was so not use to using a pattern I had to construct, resconstruct and then construct again only to realise the fabric had a stain on it and I had to do it all AGAIN! Obviously I put my own spin on it (zip and fold over). I’m not totaly sure about the colour but I really wanted something bright.
