I've found out this week that I'm going to Italy in August! I went with my family last year for my mum's wedding in Lake Garda, so it's lovely that I'm able to go back again. Ever since I received the news, I've been trawling through eBay in a bid (no pun intended) to find some cheap pieces to pack!
I'm still obsessed with Dolce & Gabbana's SS'12 collection so I'm hoping to find similar items in time. The second-to-last image is just perfect.
I hope you're all having a lovely week so far; I'm off to try Zumba in a little while. God help me. I know I'm jumping on the bandwagon a little late but I figured I should start toning up sooner rather than later (even if it's just so I can stuff my face with pasta and ice cream in the future!).

I was supposed to be at a garden party today, but as luck (and the British weather) would have it, my Jubilee celebrations have been postponed until tomorrow! This gave me the chance to drink tea, scroll through pages of the Retronaut blog and watch the poor Queen shiver on a boat for four hours whilst putting on a brave face for our nation!
Anyway, these images of London in the 1950's are the perfect antidote during this miserable weather! I hope people have had a lovely weekend already, and hope the rain didn't spoil whatever you had planned!

Again, I am so sorry for being absent for so long, but I can finally say that I am free! I'm back home now for the summer after stressing over deadlines so I'll now have more time for getting back to my blogging ways.
Anyway, I thought I'd share with you a film a group of us created for our Contemporary Design Influences module. It's based on the idea of disillusionment; taking inspiration from the psychological torture Miss Havisham endured, as well as having a strong sex theme too (ooh, fancy). It took us forever to organise, shoot and edit so I would really love your feedback!
Thank you again for followers old and new,
I'm honestly so excited to start blogging every day again!

I've finally finished my concept board for tomorrow! Combining designer Elie Saab and natural elements, I'm designing a fashion show set in a huge nest with feathers, reflective objects and mirror shards hanging from the ceiling and Goldfrapp singing in an egg shell. I love university.
I also had to give a small (embarrassing!) presentation on my NY trip to the class, giving them a good glimpse of my blog. I'm sorry if I've been talking non-stop about my course but it's pretty much taken over my life this week.
Anyway, blogging might be a little sporadic this weekend as I'm off to visit Josh in York tomorrow! I haven't seen him for a couple of weeks and can't wait to hop on the train.
Ooh, and thank you for all of the lovely comments I've received recently! It really means a lot :).

Meet my current obsession; Elie Saab. This semester, I'm required to create a hypothetical fashion show using a designer and concept of my choice (as well as ringing the Natural History Museum pretending I'm an actual events organiser in the hope they give me a price for hiring them). Although it's fairly up the air at the moment, I'm looking into creating a AW12 couture show for this incredible designer; taking inspiration from natural forms, texture and all that glitters.
I've also organised to take outfit photographs with a girl from my course so fare thee well self-timer! Hopefully you'll see more of my face and less of Karlie Kloss' (and we all know which one you'd rather catch a glimpse of).
In other news, here's my finalised document header for my PR company, "Brainjack"! If you caught my previous post, you'll know I've been ripping my hair out trying to perfect it.

I love how I'm watching Big Fat Gypsy Weddings as I upload these images. Oh, how times have changed.
I'm also banging my head against the wall as I've spent ALL DAY trying to come up with a name for my PR company that isn't either A. already taken or B. shit. I'm sure I'll think of something soon but for now I'm off for a cup of tea and a shower. Perhaps doing both at the same time will conclude to some PR-related epiphany.
