I chose to begin my shop report on Oxford street, pretty much everyone’s heard of it, and it’s like the shopping epicentre of London everything seems to come off of it . Leicester square, Soho, Saville row, Bond and Carnaby street and well there are just a ridiculous amount of shops to chose from round there, some good Topshop, American apparel and urban outfitters and some not so good..Bik Bok and ones without names that sell tourist crap and cowboy hats that I’m still uncertain to how they manage to pay for rental on possibly the most expensive street around .I came out of the Underground bustle via floating, the Christmas shopping is upon us as are some very pitiful Christmas lights. I was so kindly carried out by a heard of young women and found my feet at the newly sorted traffic light system facing Nike town, the streets were mental and to be honest I was rethinking my shop report tactics, would I have been better to come first thing like really really early the answer yes!. I’m getting the sweats from just thinking about it. So I moseyed up Oxford Street passing Topshop which was followed by me walking back on myself and actually going into Topshop. There Christmas stock is to die for all sparkly and lacy with huge beautiful black knits. I only bought some sparkly tights ...note to self don’t go in again before Christmas or I will leave with EVERYTHING. So down Oxford street I go passing Urban outfitters, American Apparel, La Senza, Uniqlo, GAP, Zara, H and M those kind of things and though I love most they’re real commercial and well I’ve been there done that I want to explore shops I wouldn’t normally. I get home and realise that all I’ve learnt and reported on is what I know I’m not going to do and that’s Oxford Street it’s too mental for me to handle at Christmas. I have a little google map time and come to the conclusion that Oxford Street is the epicentre but my shop report will take place in Carnaby and Bond street....NEXT TRIP BOND STREET.

im back, i had barely begun and i had given up, but this time im out of the sulk and out of the rain and truely excited about moving back to london....just a few weeks to go in the mean time the plan is to get blogging, go see chuck ragan (way excited) and find the perfect charity shop curtains for my new place which i'll be sharing with cat and pop whom i know have big plans for our everso cute home to be. In the last month ive been to london and back,visited my friend sarah who is like a beautiful punk, the dr martens and the denim but none of the piercings, been to 'Pure' womenswear which is this event full of small clothes brands which sell to stores, interesting but more for shop owners and sadly the fashion wasnt too desirable.Seen Coco avant Chanel...audrey tautou the only women who could ever play her is incredible and intoxicating.I've started having odd dreams again, so wake up at like 7, absolutely shattered and completely bored so back to visiting peoples blogs which i love but normally save for night times . on madamoiselle robots blog i came across this.......possibly the best find of the week by far...at first there was poladroid.com... but this is unreal i love it. I have forever been in search of those old fashioned photobooths the ones that take 4 individual images and well now heres one and you dont even have to leave the room....
that is the smile of one very excited blogger.
and then yesterday i was on style.com and cam across this lollapalooza thingy ma bob , anyway the photos i picked have come from there n theyre my four favourite, i guess the 3 girl pics i'd like an element of each of them in me, like those round space ages glasses and the little pixie heeled lace up boots, i think im deffinately going black and lacey this season not witchy, but lots of leg and awesome tights like the polka gerbe ones which are everywhere.
This sassy lady is wearing a christian dior dress (if only) and charlotte ronson shoes (actually the sexyest things ever)
theres something very beautiful and very natasha khan (bat for lashes) about feathers in your hair and sparkly eyeshadow . Its no where near the eye,but i think the further away the better. if youve seen that Barry M advert it may put u off sparkly bright colours for life, but done in the right way Barry m is amazing me and my friends spent all of being 18 in barry m, those little pots of glitter best thing that could happen, just dont wear it like the girl in the add, awful just awful
the black top, skirt and boots are all all vintage. all these people are from america and i cant help but be totally jealous of their vintage finds, i mean england is fab at vintage so fab infact that theyve raised the prices and all the good things are going fast where as america still has its $7 ways and thrift stores, dammit. This girls boots are incredible i mean not as incredible as the burberry lace up heels but frickin close, and i bet they were about £450 quid either. gorgeous shoes just make my heart melt
she also has legs that i wish to borrow or i dunno rent out cus seriously, how do you get ones like that.
so with that here they are from style.com the most heavenly shoes ever
i have this vision of going on a hike in them in the peaks, getting mud, sheep poo and some grass stuck in them whilst wearing a long trailing lacey white dress with layers and it just being mouldy with dirt at the bottom and getting in the house and sitting on my bed on a white duvet and thinking I DONT CARE I REALLY DONT CARE because these are the best shoes that could possibly ever happen to me and then in a cinderella meets horrid henry kind of way fall asleep and well never take them off ever, cus why would i when theyre just so comfy

its late at night and i dont really know what to do with myself so i gave some oldie drawings a bit of a scan..theyre pictures of season 08 autumn winter collections so i guess i shold really get round to doin this seasons..i chose black as the theme last time' into the dark' this time i dunno i like dark tones and wanna do the rock grunge thing..but i may just go for the theme of big coats and draw pretty ladys with little cute heads and feathers in there hair and long curly locks...hmm thoughts a whirling....
The feathers reminded me of this awesome section in an old Amelias magazine 08 A/W 2007 ...its like a halloween special 'trick or treat', the stylings by Mhairi Gibb and photos Gemma Booth...the back drop for the images are so 'I live at home with my mum and this is what i wear like everyday' the outfits are awesome and playful..the feather and burglar ones are my favourites and the contrast of setting and garment just works

Its a picture of treen actually just above a nudest beach, but that thankfully i will save you from, but what i will say is some old people can look surprisingly good. Im thinking its from swimming in gorgeous sea like that.
So instead of the sea ive been sat at my wooden table, blogging and general noseying and drawing things aswell as finding the most adorable animal pictures...oh and going on farmtown on facebook a habit i need to calm down on
Inspiration of the cutest kind so i went google crazy on teeny animals and came across these
A little drawing i did of my friend poppy with a little cute mouse and wolfy
