Savage Beauty - 21.5.15


Yesterday I found myself in sunny london to for a visit to the Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty exhibition. I've been waiting to go since I found out it was coming to the V&A back in 2014 and it really didn't disappoint. There's so much I could say, I could talk about it for ages but I won't bore you for too long.

For those who don't know, Alexander McQueen is possibly the greatest fashion designer there ever was or will be, honestly, I'm not exaggerating, and finally the Savage Beauty exhibition came to London this summer. It displays works from his graduate collection right through to his final, unfinished A/W 2010 collection. 

His collections are more than just fashion, they're works of art. Constantly surpassing his own boundaries with exquisite detailing and innovative tailoring there's no body else close. Personally I feel Alexander McQueen had only just hit his prime when he left us, which only makes losing him even more tragic. I can only imagine the extraordinary places he'd be taking us if he was still designing today.

If you're in London before August 2nd I can't encourage you enough to go and visit this exhibition, its extraordinary (i ended up spending 2 and a half hours in there!). The atmosphere in each room is amazing, they really take you through the different era's of McQueen. 
See I'm talking way too much! I just urge you to visit, you wont regret it!

PS you're not allowed to take any pictures so I borrowed these pics from some lovely cheeky peeps on Instagram (I tried to take my own but the security guard really wasn't happy with me (oops))

Get tickets for the exhibition here! Kisses x

Awkward - 16.5.15


Shirt Dress - Primark || Sunglasses - ASOS

Everything feels awkward today. The awkward length of this shirt, the awkward grown out style of my hair, these awkwardly flat shoes and the in between weather. But most awkwardly, awkward social interactions, yep. Forgetting someone's name is one thing, mistaking them for another person is another but completely forgetting who they are? Yeah pretty awkward. And i managed to do it 3 times today. Needless to say its been a long day and a long week, I definitely need a drink or two. 

I'm questioning my decision to wear this shirt as a dress today, I know this is how it was intended but I'm not convinced its very flattering on me. Next time I think I'll style it with a pair of white jeans and platforms. Now to get ready for another long week. And molly, if you're reading this, sorry!

Denim Wishlist

Double denim, perfect heels and coffee, pretty much perfect?
(I'm so happy about the denim trend this season you have no idea)

As someone whose lived in black skinny jeans what feels like my whole life I'm still trying to build a relationship with real blue distressed denim and, this time round, I have no intention of taking it slow. Its super scary, everything I try on I hate for a while, I think it's just a case of breaking out of the black and free falling for a while.

So I suppose this is a little denim wishlist as these are the pieces I'm lusting after. Light denim always gives me summer vibes, just day-dreaming about sunny summer days in the south of france, shopping by the waters edge with my bestie, a girl can dream right?
