My Favourite Object??

So back to Uni I's actually much better than last year. My classes are a lot more interesting and we're getting to do a magazine again!! Been put in control again as editor so it's totally playing up to my control/OCD personality.
This photo is for our CCS class. We had to do a biography on ourselves, which I won't bore you to tears by posting it, but then we had to include a picture of our favourite object or something significant to us. Since I couldn't find anything deep, meaningful and slightly pretentious, I settled on my old faithfuls. La leopard print booties! Personally I believe they are an extension of my personality.....or just really, really cool.
But being bored on a wednesday night whilst writing the bio, my flatmate and I decided to turn the whole thing into a photoshoot. Better than a midnight Tesco run anyway.

Wedding Blues

 Carrie in Vera Wang - in my opinion better than the Westwood she ended up in! Clearly why Big never got to the altar. Bloody Vivienne.

Had my last day a work yesterday, so sad! Have really enjoyed working there, but hopefully I'll get to go back next year. For those who don't know I've been working at Opus Couture Bridal Boutique - google it, it's brillant - felt I should write a post as an ode to Opus! So here's some of my favourite bridal looks, & yes for those who know me, I KNOW I don't want to get married - have many reasons which I won't bore you with - but I do love the pretty dresses! & the shoes, & the veils, & the tiaras.....
Princess Grace's Wedding Party

Vogue's "The Wedding Party"
Kate Moss's Wedding Party shot by Mario Testino - pure perfection, no?

Anja Rubik I think..
Jason Wu Bridal - this would be mine! Means I can wear AMAZING per all about the shoes...


Have been working as a dresser today & tomorrow at a fashion event so in definite need of a cocktail or 3...

As I'm concentrating on all things bridal, if you are one & are stuck for something blue what about a cocktail, perfect non?

Bikini Martini

1.5 measures of Hendrick's Gin
1 teaspoon of Peach Schnapps
1.5 measures of De Kuyper Blue Curacao

Shake all the ingredients together in a James Bond-esque fashion and strain into a preferably sparkly martini glass. Enjoy whilst wearing floor-length evening dress.....or bridal couture.

Elbaz + Meisel = Genius

Found the new Lanvin A/W Ad Campaign video featuring Karen Elson & Raquel Zimmermann. Utterly hilarious - haven't stopped laughing for 2 days. Its so simple! But it really just shows that models can't dance. Shame really, they look so pretty. But the best part has to be Alber Elbaz at the end - pure brillance.


Lanvin has to be my favourite BIG fashion house, yes I think it does even beat Chanel & Kaiser Karl. The clothes just ooze pure luxury, & are clothes you'd actually want to wear.

Have also realised that I've been getting quite a few comments from people so I'd just like to say thank you very much & if you like what you see then please follow me & hopefully I'll take this blog to Paris one day!
Also sorry for not replying, something's going on with blogger and it won't let me. I'll keep trying though.

THE Dress

I finally finished it! Party was on Saturday night and just after midday I managed to finish it - so pleased sewing under stress was out my life until I realised, I only have another week til I go back to Uni.
The inspiration for this dress came from one by Marchesa, so I found a basic, basic dress pattern adapted it and adding my own. Took a bloody age though!
Party was good though still suffering today although Lounge made me a special birthday cocktail....

Sorry for the lack of posts - the dress is consuming me, but all of a sudden the tension in my machine's going all wrong, I have a day to complete it so this is what I'm feeling like.
However in an aid to calm me down I found these behind the scenes pictures from the Chanel A/W campaign - gotta love the pink eyebrows....perhaps a trend??

Just love Freja Beha Erichsen - so versatile as a model.
