Fall Trend Report

Friday, 30 November 2012

So december is officially upon us, and that means time to get out the good old winter wardrobe. This year, oversized coats are number one on the wish list, but with fur trims and detailing you could fit two of fall's major trends into one item. (shop coats & other trends here, here and here)

Tailored suits with matching prints are also going to be huge this year, and offer a nice change from the usual dress at a christmas party. Also on the wish list is leather, brocade prints and embroidery.


Sort of contest thing-y I guess

So I took some more pictures today...I still haven't had the time to take any good ones and so once again apologise for the quality and the state of my face. Anyway, I am wearing a vintage denim jacket from Rokit, a vintage woolly jumper from Blitz (coolest vintage store ever) some plain black leggings from H&M, a hat from Urban Outfitters and a necklace from Camden.
I've been feeling a bit ugh recently but I blame the dark and cold weather and the amount of weight I've put on from excessive comfort eating...oh well, it's christmas soon ^_^


Not that my opinion really counts for anything but

Let's all just take a moment to appreciate the complete perfection of Cara Delevingne. Definitely one of the best new models for a long time.

I hate rain

So it's raining. Rain means bad hair. Bad hair means a bad day.
Anyway, to make up for the fact that I looked like I had been dragged through a hedge backwards I thought I'd come home, have a nice orange berocca (vitamin drink for all you non-berocca people) and eat a crapload of nutella...which I did. Now I feel (and probably look) like I weigh about 19 stone. Oh well, there's a song for that.... and I don't mean 'sexy and I know it', I was thinking more along the lines of 'whole lotta rosie' by AC/DC but you know, whatever.
I also thought I would try and take some more photos but, as said, I look like trash and have eaten my feelings so will probably just take some more later on in the week.

*please ignore the state of my face

So here's my first outfit post...I apologise for the picture quality, my camera has decided to not work properly (I also apologise for the state of my face)...anyway, I am wearing a vintage tie-up shirt from spitalfields market, Levi shorts, patterned tights from H&M, and a vintage Diesel Jacket. My socks are from Urban Outfitters and my shoes are from Office.
I do actually shop in high street stores occasionally, but often only for basics or one-off pieces. I used to be a huge Topshop and River Island fan, but nowdays I'm more likely to look in H&M as everything is relatively cheap, or Urban Outfitters as I like their sort of vintage-y, grunge-y vibe.
Also, I have a lookbook! http://lookbook.nu/ellie_c ...you never know, hopefully I might get into some kind of routine with all this internetting (I know that isn't a word but it totally should be).

Just click on the photos to enlarge xo

Winter Boots

I have a cold. And I think I've got to the point where I'm finally going to have to give in and except that it is actually winter now, which means, in my mind, new boots. I like buying shoes all the time but it's even better when you have a good excuse, and what better excuse than winter?

Embellished heels are really in right now (for example the above boots, which are Alain Quilici for David Koma, from Vogue.com) And I really want a sort of heeled Chelsea boot (I need a heel to make me normal height). Also on the rise are cut-out, shin-shielding boots and sandals such as Alexander Wang's examples below (from Style.com), so look out for them at future fashion events, and making their way onto the highstreet.
Hey blogspot ^_^
So yes although I said I'd stick with tumblr, I thought if I'm going to start taking this seriously I may as well make a blogspot as well. (I nearly said yolo but then remembered that I'm trying to get you to like me).
So if you haven't already, please follow my various tumblrs ( pastel/pink blog, fashion blog, personal/fashion blog) and my twitter ( @ellielikestea ) and please follow this blog and remember to check back soon as I'm going to try and post more.
