Rumour has it that the puffa jacket is back. Something that would only be acceptable in the coldest of weathers and sometimes not even then. But apparently it's now the latest trend and a key item for your winter wardrobe. So what's with the sudden turn around? The reinvention of the puffa came about during the a/w 11 collections of many designers. Isabel Marant created a long gilet puffa, Alexander Wang reworked them into ponchos and anoraks and Thakoon Panichgul gave it a blue and red check pattern with an hourglass design. Even though I may not be the biggest fan of puffa's this reinvention may have me changing my mind.
So my not so guilty pleasure at the moment is definitely X Factor. Every Saturday and Sunday and then even the Xtra Factor afterwards if I have the time. There is a lot of talent this year, so they may have the X Factor, but do they have the F Factor(F being for fashion)? Before the live shows begin they always try to revamp all of the contestants which usually results in them looking worse(unless they are old in which case it is usually necessary).
I don't know how well you can see Sophie's shoes, but they were definitely the highlight of the show, fashion-wise, for me. I just tried to find where they're from but Google didn't want to help, oh well.
By the way, sorry if this post is lost on you which it probably will be if you don't watch X Factor.
So last Thursday at Elements may not have been the best idea, Ben & Jerry's and alcohol is not something I will be trying again. However next Thursday the theme returns to dress up, and this time round it's Where's Wally. Firstly where would I buy Where's Wally attire and secondly surely wearing the real outfit would be way too hot to go 'clubbing' in (clubbing in Epsom just doesn't sound right). So as a refresher, what do Wally & co wear?
I think I'll cross the dog off the list. And the wizard man. I don't think I have any yellow stripy clothes so I guess I'll cross the creepy looking guy off the list too. Leaving me with wally and his lady friend. I don't even have any red and white stripy clothes... I guess a shopping trip is in order.
You may have had your doubts about Stratford in the past, but if you were to visit now you would have a whole new perspective. My new perspective kicked in when I visited Westfield shopping centre for the first time this Tuesday. Forget visiting Track'n'field next summer, you should be visiting Westfield. Calling it a shopping centre is a huge understatement, it's more like a new town, Westfield town. Meaning I'm definitely looking forward to, hopefully, going again next week and letting my student loan take the hit. Eek. Here's my favourite buys from round 1 at Westfield.
Leather (I use that word loosely) skirt from H&M.
Another H&M item, velvet black dress with zip detail down the front of the dress. But my favourite buy of the day?
Due to this new student lifestyle, I have somehow managed to become even lazier than I have ever been. Maybe it's not having your parents there telling you what to do or living with 7 other students who you just want to sit around and chat to all day... Either way the laziness has taken over. That is why it has taken me over two and a half weeks to finally create this blog and upload my pictures from LFW. Now I may not have been back stage at a show, or even got into a show, but I was near the shows and managed to get some pictures of some outfits, people and clothes I found interesting.
Love this skirt, is it a back drop hem though? The diagonal front hem makes me think otherwise, clearly more fashion terminology needs to be learnt in my seminars.
Not sure I would be quite so brave as to wear just underwear underneath but nevertheless this dress still looks great, very Rihanna.
Denim jacket? Yes. Maxi skirt? Yes. Stud detailing? Yes. Dip-dyed hair? Yes (you get the point).
May I have your hair please?
Forget finishing this post with a thought, I'll finish it with these shoes.
