Hello everyone, I hope this week is filled with inspiration, good luck and love – infact I hope that these things always feature in your week!
I feel my blog (and life) needs a little structure.
Maybe it will be fashion based, model based, music, photography, computer games or i do not know but it will be based on something and will feature every Monday ! Oh and also on a Wednesday there will be more structure.. but with a focus on women who inspire in many ways !
So here is to Men on Monday:
The sunshine showed his face a little today, so I have been thinking about summer clothes !
Vivienne Westwood man s/s 2009- milan
- Snap back a little – I really did enjoy this collection and I am still thinking trousers with stripes is the way to go !
Photography : Terry Richardson: I love a sneaky look behind the scences so this time it is a video you can see his work back on this post.
Film: Tim Burton - Director – I also mentioned him back here
I adore all his work and he inpires me ( and no doubt others ) so very much. He just has a wonderful mind and I would love to take a peek in there one day and again, like many others, I would love to work with this fantastic man ! When teamed with Johnny Depp ( view here ) the fun gets even more extreme, two very unique, talented and very fun men and not at all your usual Hollywood creatures ! ! Do check out Tim’s delightful website: http://www.timburton.com/
One of my top Tim Burton films
Oh and I am so excited to see Alice in Wonderland which comes out on March 5th !
- Dreaming of Paris
- Sorting out even more papers, magaines and mess in my room
- Searching fo a part time / full time job where I live
- Making a variety of plans which I may draw on the computer and show you…I have a few different ideas and I think which ever happens first will be the route I take !
- Looking at courses
- Printing cv’s
Below is a fantastic place to eat in Paris !
Hello all , I may be a little late with this one…but four days ago ( while in Paris ) I got a reminder of the Vouchercodes.co.uk Bargainista challenge and the idea of winning LFW tickets is quite exciting!
I got home last night and fell asleep thinking of what my best bargain outfit was…and even if I am a little late I had fun deciding what to show and tell to you lovely readers and what a better way to show you my new vintage blazer I found in Paris !
I found this necklace at the bottom of a pile of clothes in the Monsoon/Accessorize sale in Huddersfield a good few years ago…at a fab £2.00 I could not say no. I am sure you can tell that it has been well worn ( it once had a bird and a cage on it but this fell off after lots of nights out dancing whilst at university ) !
My outfit consits of my new fantastic blazer I found in a vintage shop in Paris…I have an awful habit of putting my hands in my pockets and it must stop!
Anyway the blazer was £8 euros .. which I thought was fab, its in good condition, it is purple and has leopards all over it !
The dress I have on underneath is from a sale in Dorothy Perkins , I do not buy a lot from here but always pop in now and then incase I spot something pretty ! Just before Christmas I popped in and found this dress for £7.00
The tights I have on are from Topshop and I also found these in the sale… for a fantastic £3.00. I am someone who wears tights most days and I must say that these ones are fantastic quality…so far ! !
Last of all my boots are from Magic Vintage in Huddersfield…
I got these a few years ago for £5.00 ish I think, I wear boots a lot ..when I am not wearing pumps and converse and these are fab!
Ok…so there you go …a total of £22.00 not too bad I say !
My secret bargain hunting tip is :
No no no , not David Dickinson !
It is to be open minded …do not dismiss a shop, a carboot sale, ebay or chairty shop just because you did not find anything there before. Always pop in and take a look! You never know what you may find !
I think that all the clothes look soft and comfy perfect for the really hot weather we are unlikely to get in the UK ! Im only kidding, I am sure we will get a crazy hot week where everyone will appear to become unemaployed, fill up the parks, drink too much and pass out due to the heat !
It is all about big big shoes, I really like wedges/platforms – nice and easy (ish) to walk in !
Big hairbands – which I know we all love and it seems the key accessory is a:
flat tummy !
er…I guess I will be off to the gym then …bye !
