I know I’m pretty late to the party with these galaxy leggings, but I’m just way too much of a space nerd to resist them any longer. I loved them when they first appeared, but the fact that they were everywhere & everyone had a pair really put me off getting some myself. I also could never really justify the £50+ price tag when I knew for me they would be more of a novelty piece, something I only wore very occasionally or mostly just around the house when working from home.

I was skeptical of the quality of this pair when I ordered them, being so cheap, but I was pleasantly surprised when they arrived. The print is vibrant & clear, and though the material could be a little thicker they are definitely not sheer or cheap looking. I have already worn them more than I expected to and I love that even though they are one of the more colourful things I own, they still feel quite dark & fit easily into the rest of my wardrobe.

Last Sunday we went down to the Southbank Center for the 2013 Vogue Festival, we got there a little early & so decided to kill some time by taking some super touristy outfit shots. It seemed like it would have been a shame to not use the beautiful backdrop of the Southbank whilst we were there, even if we did have to fight for a spot amongst all the other tourists.

I can’t even begin to describe how much I love this dress. I’m not much of a print person, so I never usually like to buy different items with the same print, but I loved both this & the leggings I featured few weeks ago so much that I had to get them both. Well, the H. R. Giger inspired print was just too me to pass up & I think the alien influence is even more apparent on the dress. I love the way the pleats curve in around the waist, it’s super flattering & it’s so 3D looking it’s hard to believe that it’s just a print. I was stopped so many times by people asking for photos of it whilst I was walking around, it’s definitely an attention grabber. You can just see a glimpse of my vintage black diamond earrings here too, I don’t have many pairs, as you rarely see them underneath all of my hair, but these are easily my favourites.

Now the weathers finally getting a bit warmer I’m able to wear my draped leather jacket more often too. Those of you that follow me on Twitter & Instagram will see that I’ve just brought a vintage sewing machine (she’s now called Agyness by the way!), so I’m hoping to re-make a more perfect version of this jacket soon. I’m thinking of maybe doing a suede version too, as I do wear it an awful lot & it would be nice to have a few of them, especially now I have a machine capable of sewing them up!

Ever since I heard Georgia Hardinge would be creating a collection for River Island’s Design Forum I’ve been desperate to get my hands on a few pieces. I then saw the short film released during London Fashion Week & learned that the capsule collection of 14 pieces was inspired by H.R. Gigers paintings & sculptures. I don’t usually do print, but being the huge sci-fi nerd that you all know I am & the fact the prints reminded me of the Xenomorphs from the Alien series (one of Gigers creations) had me sold immediately!

I finally bagged these leggings & also the t-shirt dress in the same print, I wanted to get the pale grey pleated neoprene dress too, but talked myself out of it, knowing I wouldn’t get much wear from it with it being so pristinely pale & me being so messy! Practicality is a huge aspect of why I wear mostly black.

I kept the rest of the look simple, pairing them with my favourite, worn to death Todd Lynn for Topshop tux & my handmade skirt. I’m wearing this skirt more & more recently, the little details like the notches make all the difference to an otherwise plain skirt & the stretch twill I made it from is the most lovely fabric, I really need to buy some more & make a few more things with it!

After having just spent a small fortune on a sale haul from ASOS I really shouldn’t have spent any more, but when I saw this maxi dress I couldn’t help but make another order. You know when you see something & it is just so you, it could have been made for you? This was one of those pieces, I couldn’t say no to it. The asymmetric midi/maxi hem, the contrasting jersey/crepe panels that give it a little stiffness & that beautiful flared shape & the top half is a t-shirt too, total perfection.

My cropped leather jacket from my degree collection (are you sick of seeing this yet?!) was the perfect compliment to the long lengths, I love playing with proportions, especially when wearing maxi lengths. Everytime I wear this I remind myself I need buy some more leather & make a better (less rushed) version, but never get around to it. I’m hoping to get my machine fixed in the next few weeks though, as I plan on making some summery dresses & shirts, so hopefully I might get around to it then.

Also, on a side note, I overheard some chavvy kids call me ‘the angel of death’ whilst wearing this, I think because it billows out so much when I walk, and of course all of the black… I’m sure they meant it as an insult, but I definitely spent the rest of the day swooshing around with this in my mind!

Since high school I have been obsessed with Andy Warhol, I would even go as far as to call him my idol, so naturally I’ve been meaning to get my hands on some of the Pepe Jeans x Andy Warhol collaboration for a while now, though I could never find anywhere in the UK to buy it.

Whilst browsing through Zalando a few weeks ago I actually squealed in excitement when I saw they stocked the collection & couldn’t pass up the chance to own this tee! I love the simplicity of the ‘print’, which is actually embroidered on, it reminds me of his scribbled sketches & the quirky detailing such as the bright blue binding inside the neck & hem, raw edges & the baby soft fabric make it feel really special & I can easily imagine it’ll be something I wear to death!

These Finsk wedges are my latest favourite purchase, I brought them from their London sample sale just before Christmas & have been wearing them everywhere since. You all know by now that I’m kind of obsessed with the brand & have quite a collection of them, these are my first pair from their new sister line ‘Skin by Finsk’ though & I love that they’re a bit more understated & ‘everyday’ than the mainline. This is one of my favourite things about the brand, the way they combine style & functionality, they’re like little works of art but are also some of the comfiest shoes I’ve ever owned, even their monster wedges which look like a total nightmare to walk in, are comfortable enough to wear all day!

The jacket is one of my own, it’s not perfect, but it’s the most used of the pieces I made during my degree because it’s pretty much my dream jacket; cropped, buttery leather, draped, subtle anatomical detailing & super versatile. It’s been featured here quite a few times now & my favourite thing about it is that it looks totally different depending if it’s zipped up or not, you can see it done up here. I really need to get around to making a more ‘perfect’ version of it when I get chance…
