London Fashion Week Pictures!

I had meant to do this post ages ago but I was so busy with going back to school that I never got the chance, anyway in September I had the amazing experience of dressing at London Fashion Week for two shows; Unconditional and House of Holland. And yes I was fangirling in my head when I saw Henry Holland and grinning like a silly school girl, I think he thought I was a tad unhinged. It was so much fun, and this time I managed to take a few (fuzzy) snaps from backstage, enjoy!
The model/outfit board at House of Holland, showing what model is wearing which outfit.

Snapped Henry Holland whilst doing an interview for Vogue.

This is the models outfits whom I was dressing, the board shows how the outfits are to be styled and also the number of showing order the model goes onto the catwalk. 

And some other assorted pictures from behind the scenes!

Music: Imagine Dragons

As you may be able to tell from my last post, I enjoyed "The Perks of Being a Wallflower" and so naturally just had to find out the song from the trailer, which led me to find Imagine Dragons, a band hailing from Las Vegas. Their song you may recognise from the film is called "It's Time", and is seriously catchy and infectiously happy, much like the rest of their album "Night Visions" which has a rather upbeat feel, some of the tracks sound similar to other bands such as Two Door Cinema Club and The Killers. I personally really like this band and am enjoying discovering the rest of their music!

Movies: The Perks Of Being A Wallflower : Review

I have literally just gotten back from the cinema, and decided the only fitting thing to do after seeing what may be one of the best movies of the year, was to write about it (without giving spoilers away of course!).
"The Perks of Being A Wallflower" is a seriously moving and emotive film, as I was going into it not having read the book, I wasn't sure what to expect. However I was pleasantly delighted, the acting - top notch, the script- amazing, just everything about this movie was so right.

"The Perks Of Being A Wallflower" is a coming of age story based on the critically acclaimed novel by Stephen Chbosky, about Charlie, an introverted "wallflower" who learns to experience "dizzying highs and crushing lows of growing up", with the help of his vibrant and dynamic friends Sam and Patrick.
As a self confessed "wallflower" myself, I found the characters incredibly relateable, especially Charlie, to the point that I no longer felt myself in the cinema, but genuinely a part of the story and immersed in his life. This was thanks to Logan Lerman's acting talents, who plays the role flawlessly, and the wonderfully constructed story line and character development. Emma Watson and Ezra Miller are perfect for the roles of Sam and Patrick,and bring fun, liveliness and warmth, so much so that by the end of the film you will want to be their friends.

There were so many aspects of this story that will speak to the audience on so many levels, finding "first love", learning to grow into yourself as a person, overcoming past or present demons and the experience of coming of age.
"The Perks Of Being A Wallflower" is a sweet, charming, melancholy, witty film and one that I would recommend to anyone.

Red jeans and how to wear them!

I have been coveting a pair of red jeans since last month, I need them! Coloured jeans are so on trend right now, and my favorite colour is burgundy. Its a really classy colour that will add an extra oomph to any outfit.I have put together four outfits; two casual and two for going out, to give you an idea of what I think looks good  with red jeans, as it is a very tricky colour to work with, but when done well can make you look seriously stylish!
Outfit 1: The pink sparkly Topshop top compliments the dark red colour of the jeans, and when paired with the glittery shoes this outfit has a sense of sweet girly innocence with the twist of the edgier jeans.

Outfit 2: The grey sequinned top looks dressy yet more grown up than the previous outfit, paired with the killer black booties, you'll be a sartorial envy of all your friends.

Outfit 3:  The clean crisp white shirt gives the jeans a smart yet casual look, however the leopard print ankle boots crank the outfit up a notch from good to gorgeous.

Outfit 4: If you want to work the colour block trend this season pair your red jeans with this gorgeous jumper, add Zara's velvet moccasins to give the look a unique twist.
