Shirt/ Sun Thrift, Jacket/ Rummage Sale, Shoes/ EBAY HOLLA!

So I had to get these shoes. I just had to. I remember my mom had a pair when I was little and I thought they were so ugly. I never thought in a million years I would be searching Ebay for a size 5 at 3 in the morning. They are surprisingly comfortable and I love how they look. This is my sort of Lazy Sunday [posted on a friday] look.

Music- I find it fitting to post some music that has been occupying my mind, the past couple of weeks.

Thanksgiving bb

Dress/Karma Clothing, Shoes/ Urban Outfitters, Jacket/ Brick Lane Market.

Let me start by saying Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I am sorry for being MIA for the past 2 weeks, school is coming to an end for the holidays [Thank God!] so I have had a month of finals hell. It's almost over though, just one more week and I am finally done. I wish I was in LA to celebrate with my family, but I am super thankful that I have skype and a computer so I can at least talk to them on this wonderful holiday.
Something that I am also really thankful for it this dress that I am wearing. Karma Clothing was so generous to send me it to me. The weather may be shitty in London, but this dress's scenery warms me up! I strongly suggest that you look into their inventory on their site. They have a bunch of really awesome clothing for really affordable prices. Here are a few of my other picks:

Top/ Lazy Oaf, Skirt/ Vintage, Coat/ UNIF, Shoes/ Ego and Greed

I went to a Lazy Oaf sample sale over the weekend where I scored this awesome top (among other things). I always saw this top on nastygal or the lazy oaf website, and I thought it was cute, but not something I would ever own. It might have been the price that I couldn't rap my head around. I got this one for ten pounds. Thats why I love sample sales, you get really awesome clothing that is really good quality (usually) for a really good price. I got some other shirts and a really wonderful dress, which I later spilled chocolate on... -__- ... Other than that one exciting event, this weekend was filled with work. The term is almost over (thank god) but I still got some things that I need to do. Wish me luck!

Dress/ Jet rag, Shoes/ Sun Thrift, Sweater/ Burbank Vintage

Scatterbrain is becoming a common occurrence in my life. I am getting so many ideas/ obligations thrown at me every hour and I feel like there aren't enough hours in the day. At the same time I don't even know what I do. That sounds so strange, but I feel like I have all this stuff to do, but then I don't know how to go about doing it or something and then I have cool ideas of stuff I want to do, but with all my work it seems like the things I want to do are out of reach. It's an interesting feeling though, I'm learning to deal with it.

Lord O-Mighty You Betta Smile

Top/ O-Mighty, Dress/ Thrifted, Shoes/ Unif, Jacket/ East End Vintage.

So the reality of this post (and most likely the next one) is it was fucking cold outside. The things we do for fashion.. I know I have been complaining about this for the past couple of posts, but just so you know that I am being serious:
Okay, so it's in celsius, so it's actually around 30 degrees, but I am from southern california! I am FREEZING!

I have had very little time lately because school has really gotten complicated in the past two weeks after a month or so of literally doing nothing. It kind of snuck up on me. A friend and I went to camden to take these pictures over the weekend.

I haven't done to much exploring in that area besides going to the camden market and the little retail shops around there and neither has she, so we thought we would give it a go. We did really venture that much past the market because we really weren't very sure where to go. We stopped to take some pictures at this mural. It looks so much cooler in the picture than it did in real life. It looks like there is chaos behind me when I think it was supposed to be a high way scene.

On our way back I got a crepe, and it was the messiest thing I think I have ever had to deal with. I have never had a hard time eating a crepe before, and trust me I know my way around a crepe, but this one was dysfunctional or something. It started leaking from the plate that it was on and then it got all over me. I thought I had fixed it by cleverly folding the plate and then the chocolate syrup started pouring from the middle of the plate and it wouldn't stop. Of course I was on the tube at this point covered in chocolate and getting weird looks from everyone. I couldn't help but laugh at how gross I was being, but I couldn't help it. I felt like I needed to take a shower. Some woman kindly offered me a tissue, and it helped for a little while, but then I used a plastic bag that I had gotten syrup all over and that did the trick. This was literally me trying to eat this crepe:

I think that's probably a good place to end, no?

Music- This song is a bit regressive in my musical evolution but I have always loved it. It's one of those songs that whenever I show it to someone they are kind of like... Are you serious?... Yes, I am very serious.

Artist Spotlight: Francesca Jane Allen

I meant to post this last sunday, but time has really been escaping me lately. I found this artist through facebook actually. A friend from my past who I haven't seen in ages posted her website. I looked at her work and fell in love. I noticed that my friend had tagged her in the post which was piculiar to me. I clicked on her linked name and found out that she goes to a school within UAL. This was even more bizzar because my friend who posted the link lives in LA, but it was clear they knew each other. What a small world right?

Francesca is a really talented photographer who has done a lot of professional work with many fashion designers and magazines and she is still in Uni. From what I can tell this must be her last year at UAL. I really enjoy her work and I would love to someday shoot with her. Check out her website here, and her blog here.

Picture overload:
