(Soon to be) Happy Feet.

(Soon to be)


Shoes are my weakness. And not in the normal, I-love-shoes-so-much-I'll-sell-my-relatives for them way. In the way that mine are often a bit rubbish. 

Don't get me wrong..I love shoes. Really love shoes. But they're generally more expensive than clothes, especially boots in winter. When I'm trying to resist spending (even if I'm failing) they always seem that bit too pricey, and shelling out £50+ always seems a step too far. Plus, I have strange shaped feet and a lof of the styles I love look stupid, or hurt, so I tend to find one pair I love and wear them to death (Topshop Mighty boots, I'm looking at you). And buying practical shoes that you'll wear every day just isn't that exciting.

But, I've decided, ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. No more will my outfits be let down by sub-standard shoes. This summer I'm focusing on my feet and buying pretty, neutral shoes that will help my clothes to realise their full potential. 

Obviously I can't buy all of the below as I'm clearly not a millionaire (waaaa) but I'm hoping that the top row will all find a place in my life. The pink Zara ones (furthest right on the second row) are so beautiful that I want to take them to bed with me and cry, but realistically they aren't that useful. Such is life. 

Links to all of them are on my Polyvore!

After talking someone's ear off the other day about how much I love sequins and how excited I am that embellishment is big for Spring/Summer, I figured I should practise what I preach and actually wear some.

I need to be careful with sequins though..after I fell in love with them last time I got a bit carried away and my eBay took quite a battering.

I swear every time I wear this necklace I have the same colour nail varnish. I must be well weak minded and open to subliminal messaging. Or I just quite like turquoise.

Iris London.


Having parts is a double edged sword. On one hand, you have no boobs, so you know, that’s a negative. Lingerie designed to be “sexy” looks silly (on me anyway) and I have no doubt that I'd be more charming if I had something noticeable to thrust at people. I'd probably get my own way a lot more too. But on the other hand, we have a lot more bra options when we don’t have to worry about where they’re headed without proper supervision and support.

I'm always on the lookout for underwear that can make me feel girly and feminine despite the natural circumstances given to me. That's why I like new brand Iris. It's a London brand based in Hackney, and all the pieces are handmade and designed by the super-talented founder, Ellie. The fabrics are beautiful; silk, eyelash lace, all in pretty colours and flattering styles with amazing attention to detail.

With underwear making an appearance in a lot of the catwalk shows and sheer being huge for spring, having nice underwear has never been more important. A washed out, 5-year-old La Senza number isn't going to cut it anymore (DAMMIT). Iris's range of longer-line and soft-cut bras are perfect for this, all the soft ones are double lined so give a bit more support than some soft ones I could mention (cough New Look cough). Top of my list is the Harlow, I love that it's a racer back as I've been searching for a nice racerback bra my whole life (ok that's a lie, but I have needed one for a good few years. I have a pretty top that's stewing in the back of my cupboard, waiting for a bra like this to walk (bounce? sashay?) into my life). 

And don't get me started on the Ink bra. So nice that I'm considering wearing it as a top. I don't know if that's a step too far? But these are bras that are designed to be seen, and to be honest it's a shame to cover them up. Realistically, I pretty much want to be one of their campaign girls. 

But I'm not that thin or that cool, so I'll be wearing them more like this. {Featuring the Harlow Pastel and Ink bra}. A little bit more subtle I think.

What's more, if you weren't in the back of the queue when they were handing out boobs, they go all the way up to a DD. So you get to look booby AND pretty. If this is the case, please don't speak to me. It's cruel, and I'll just make you uncomfortable by staring.

If you want to check out Iris, you can find them here:

Maybe I'll just leave this blog post open on my laptop, and if my poor boyfriend is as sick of my horrible old bras as I am, he'll make some of my bra shaped dreams come true.

I think it's time my underwear had an overhaul. Girls, it's time to invest in your breasts.

Daily Detail 11.03.14


I get annoyed with myself for wasting having long hair and not experimenting with it. So I went for a fishtail plait today. Didn't have much time to do it but figured it was more imaginative than a ponytail..sort of. I just want someone else to have my length hair so I can do fun stuff on it, I can't dislocate my limbs therefore can't do anything particularly interesting on my own!

Daily Detail 10.03.14


A full outfit post is a bit of a stretch for me. So a "Daily Detail" post of a section of my outfit will have to do until I can bring myself to ask someone to take pictures of me. And until I can bear to stare at my face for ages while I try to edit it so that I look like a human instead of a slug, which is what I normally look like in pictures.

I'm not entirely sure why the ends of my hair always look pink (slash orange). It's one of the many reasons I've decided to cut it all off. I just need the balls and the money to do it now.

Bela Borsodi.

Bela Borsodi..

be my best friend?

I'm going to apologise in advance for posting loads of pictures. But I just couldn't help myself, and you'll understand why in a minute.

I'm having a bit of a moment. It's sort of like when I first discovered Tim Walker and felt like I'd died and gone to fashion fairytale heaven. It's made me feel slightly panicked if I'm honest.

Bela Borsodi is an Austrian fashion photographer living in New York. He does still life editorials and they're just incredible. They're the sort of images that leave you staring at them trying to work them out, all while being beautiful and so polished. They're clever and funny and I think I might be in love with him, which is awkward.

The first images are by far my favourite shoot. It's called "While You Were Out" and takes on the idea of accessories coming to life while we're out the house. What makes me sad is that even my accessories wouldn't be this cool. They'd be in bed eating pizza. 

The rest are just a random assortment from his website, which you can find here.

If you'll excuse my language, this last one is a complete mind fuck. IT'S ALL ONE PICTURE. My tiny brain literally can't wrap itself round this.

I feel like I've lost a whole day of my life staring at that picture. I've got a bit of a headache.
