Ballet Inspired

"We are shaped and fashioned by what we love" - Maybe my ballet roots have inspired my indulgence in fabrics.

In the Name of Vintage.

Last March I was browsing through Topshop and saw the most amazing pink Ostrich feather Jacket. I was intent on buying it until my boyfriend reaaallyy put me off saying I'd look like a sheep, or an idiot basically.



Since deciding independently that it would have been :
A) an investment piece, B) a vintage item and C) a beautiful jacket for my winter nights out...
I CANNOT FIND ANYTHING SIMILAR!!!
Even flicking through Elle a few months ago I saw a designer with the same one but longer, unfortunatly it was Parisian Vintage ):

In my quest for this DAMN coat before Winter strikes [as if we even HAD a Summer here in London], I beg of u bloggers to suggest me places it can be bought or even if u know any websites with similar ones. It's a jacket not a Bolero.

I can't find the coat photo anymore but this is the gilet version, please lemme know what u think!! Do you agree with me or my boyfriend? I've seen a killer AllDressedUp dress I could buy for it. Ironically Topshop have brought back the opulence of the ostrich feathers in the A/W Kate Moss collection in the form of blue miniskirts. I mean they are okay, but my heart is set on that jacket.
My issue is that I always want stuff I can't have grrr.

My Secret Muse in Sketch.

I'll be coming back to this blog when I have more time to post more medias. First up is a sketch because it was quick and effective. He happens to be my favourite Myspace buddy who is a big photographer and fashionista too so it wasn't hard picking him as the subject.

He'll be blogging soon so I can't wait to see his material. Thanks Xavier.

It's not perfect but hopefully doing it in pen will look cooler

Flicking through a few websites last night I discovered that Jourdan Dunn is five-and-a-half months pregnant! So congrats to her and her boyfriend especially being 19 years old. Vogue have written an article about the news but they've received critism from avid fans who think she's just thrown her life away. Well yeah, personally she could have waited to solidify her place in the fashion world because as we all know, the business is fickle. But on that note, she's probably confident that come this time next she'll be hitting the runways regardless.
