Here's a little song I wrote, you might want to sing it note for note

It is one of those chilled evenings, sat on my deskchair that leans far too far back, listening to reggae. All I could do with now is a nice warm decaff by my side. Nonetheless, this state of being relaxed inspired me to write, and this time about this lovely designer Laura Theiss. Her expertise is in knitwear and her fall 2010 collection is inspired by Samurai's. Hence the model's look. I'm not usually a fan of knitwear, but this is gorgeous. It is making me seriously considering getting on board the cardigan train. (strange metaphor, I know) Those patchwork tights are amazing too. I've always had a love for coloured tights, I was one of, (thinking about it now,) I was the first to start wearing opaque coloured tights when I was in my early teens, (yeah I'd like to think I started that trend, [unlikely though it is]). These tights have a more superior feel though to my red, blue and tartan tights from then. The ruched black shirt/top is lovely too, I think I'd need to wear it with something underneath during autumn though as I generally feel the cold. This reminds me of that episode of ANTM cycle 13(the one with the petite models?) where they have to fly about as samurais.

I don't wanna walk ess oh ell oh

Ohh I love the Blonds, the glamour & glitz. Although if you ever saw me walking down the street you would not guess this, but I love the idea of being caught up in a whirlwind of sequins, sparkles and studs. Their Fall 2010 collection is no disappointment. Models walking onto the catwalk in animal costume and stripping down to couture. What I really appreciate about the Blonds is that they stick to their thing, they're not trying to hone in on the pastel cutesy look, (not that that's bad), or the tough chic military look etc. That black jacket-dress and huge necklace combo is beautiful. Although I'm not too sure on the thigh high boots, I so want those glittering silver Louboutins, which go surprisingly well with those zebra striped tights. Thus, if this is what fall 2010 has got to offer designer-wise, I can't wait for it.

I got my exam results back today, and lets just say, I'm very happy :) :) :)

My winning streak is missing

So today, I'm going to look at the best of bling for this Spring's High St (online) looks, apologies for bad put together, I only have paint, might get back to photoshop soon as my own laptop should be getting fixed soon :), its been broken for about 2 months now. I'm rather disappointed with the high st. really, they've really toned down what was on the catwalks. I was expecting to see full length embellished dresses, but I've seen sequins and a few buttons. However, this amazing bandau I found astounded me. I think its beautiful and its on by One Teaspoon for a mere £120, you may think, wow that's a lot for just a small top, but really look at the detailing on it, beautiful. I really don't know how to upload this montage in a good size either, I'm generally good at technical things, but maybe its just paint :S. Anywayys, have you seen any spring bling in the stores or online? Because all that's around in my ends are sequins, which are okay sometimes, eg- on my new cardigan, but not so much covering a whole blazer, which I have seen around. Just my opinion though, maybe there are some nice sequined blazers which I have failed to see. I went to the zoo today, so I'm pretty tired again, the monkeys were so cute, and I'm not one to usually see the appeal of animals, then again the smell of the giraffes was pretty...unforgettable.

We'll run until we're strong enough to jump

I'm so tired, and its just been a weekend in which I spent most of my time watching films, very confusing. Thus, I'm doing something different. I'm finding my favourite online highstreet looks of the moment, and their link to what was seen on spring/summer catwalks back in 2009. This is just a start. I'm incredibly fatigued, and shall be preparing for bed, as soon as this is posted at 9.35 pm, wow.
I hope this is okay, if you don't like the idea just tell me, I really don't mind :)
