twisting through the fog

Saturday, 23 September 2017


I know I literally just posted but I wanted to share some recent things before I forget and they become irrelevant. I always leave things too long and then when I try to write about them the words don't flow as well, so apologies but hopefully it'll be an interesting read.
This outfit was from last Sunday and a morning spent working for XXY Magazine at fashion week. It was the first time I've done makeup without winged eyeliner in literally years and it was strange but quite a nice change.





As usual, jewellery is from Hirst Antiques. The clothes are a mixture of vintage and the shoes are Demonia. I love how colourful the jacket is but had to make it a little more dark just as otherwise it's too much brightness!





It was also my last day working at Hirst Antiques on Saturday, after nearly three years of dressing up in and selling vintage jewels every weekend. It has been honestly such an amazing job and I don't think I'll ever find anything like it. Above is one of my bosses, Shirley, who founded the shop as an antiques shop back in the 60s, in the cardigan I gave her as a leaving present. I bought the skeleton earrings and a pair of Shirley's handmade huge red clip earrings as keepsakes, although I am sure I'll be back within the week as I cannot get enough of that shop.





Then on Monday was my first day of first year fashion degree. I have studied at Kingston for a year already so it's familiar to me, but obviously degree is a lot more intense and exciting. The first day was mostly talks and information. I then met up with my boy in the evening for food (Wahaca has an entirely vegan menu!) and to see IT in the Imax, which was terrifying but also a really nice way to relax after being nervous meeting new people all day.



Tuesday was another mostly talks and lectures day, we got the brief for our first project, then I stayed with Alexi again and started my work. Wednesday was a day off, which was useful to get started with the sketchbook they wanted us to complete.





Thursday was a nice day looking at the archive of really old clothes we have at Uni for referencing, seeing the workshops, enrolling and then heading to Spitalfield's market for our projects. Which of course meant brick lane bagels.




Friday was hand-in day, so a lot of work to finish before the deadline but I managed it (although I became a glasses-wearing school person in the process). The yellow bracelet and fish earrings I bought whilst at Spitalfield's the day before.
I couldn't help but do a little update just as I know in the future I'll be grateful for documenting it. I hope you are all having a good week!
