Posts Tagged ‘The boys’
So, someone metioned to me I don’t blog enough about boys, despite my best intentions. Did they not see the post about Paris and Milan male fashion week. Anyway i’m doing something about it.
Lately i’ve been spending sometime on Asos on their fashion finder site and created some looks for the boys with the running theme of Hollywood/teen drama. Basically the cool boys.
So recently I have decided to sell a few things on eBay. I’m moving rooms at home from my current bedroom to an attic conversion and I don’t really want to transfer all my clutter.
Besides it was genuinely stuff I don’t wear anymore. As well as this, some were vintage pieces that i don’t really I don’t really like that much.
I know I said I’d never want to get rid of clothes but I’m kepping the stuff forever that I think i’ll look back on in 30 years time and be like i’m glad I kept that. No doubt i’m selling the stuff I will actually want in 30 years time!
So, i’ve sold 7 pieces and made £23 profit. Not too shabby plus I have sooo much more room now. Well a little after my new buys…
I’ve bought a cricket jumper! It’s not quite like the one I originally had in mind but I like it and I’ve wanted one for ages. Like a whole year. I originally wanted a long one I could wear as a dress but my friend called me a tart at that so I changed my mind!
When I saw lots of shops like New Look and Internacionale and I changed my mind. Anyway, i finally bit the bullet and bought one for £3.20 on eBay!!
I intend to team it with a dark polo shirt. I have a ‘Lacoste’ one from Turkey and it’s only purpose is to wear it underneath something and maybe shorts because I don’t wear jeans.
While I was in London, i went to Camden but in recent years, I have been going off Camden. I would take myself off and just not find anything I specifically liked or felt inspired by.
This time though, I went with my Mum and sister and my Mum hasn’t been in like 20 years so I re-found my love of it.
Yes it’s more full of tourists than locals these days and I got told off in Super Drug for trying a tester that wasn’t a tester
I went to a vintage shop which actually is a vintage shop and doesn’t sell Primark items from three years ago. it’s the same shop I got my 18th Birthday dress for £50.
Just as I was leaving after hanging up the 10th dress back up that I can’t afford I had a flick through the sale rail and found a hand made, pink, fitted 1960’s dress for £5.
So i’m in London at the momment and I know thta isn’t what i’ve been taught to write a title like but it pretty sums up my day yesterday.
Basically I got dressed, and made my way into London with my sister. We got off at Marble Arch and did Primark in about 20 minutes which is all you can possibly do in there.
After that we went for coffee in the EAT in Selfridges. For those of you who do not know, I am a massive weirdo attractor. For some reason people just talk to me. So the guy next to me eating mackerel from a M&S packet in Selfridges with a suitcase was no different. I politely turned down his offer to try his fish.
Anyway into selfridges who are helping CocaCola celebrate 125 years.
Celebratory bottle which you can buy for £1.99. Resisting the urge to get a tattoo in the palour next door.
What was really amazing though, given i’m anti everything in relationships, was the Tiffany windows display. Call it influence from Wills and Kate or just wedding season.
Now when I write this you’ll all think i’m posh and rich but i’m not this was an 18th Birthday treat. My Dad took me to the Tiffany in Bond Street to choose my present. Although it’s great its just too big so I went to the one in selfriges which is now my favourite!!
So anyway the window display is various love notes, tickets and telegrams with a ring underneath it. Now these pictures are from bond street and not great but you get the idea.
On the way to the tube station to see TAKE THAT I cam across the most amazing shop in the world!! M&M shop near Leicester Square. I think it might have something to do with them sponsoring JLS on tour. On my way out I was sure that I saw David Tennant and when I turned the corner there was a massive poster of him and Catherine Tate who are starring in Much to do about nothing. So it was probably him!
I also got stopped by a woman vox popping from Real People magazine. Now I know this is not the most fun job in the world so I happily obliged her in answering her questions. Who know I might be in Real People magazine next week! oooooo 😉
Take that were absolutely amazing and I love Marky Mark even more plus the added member of the band…the 65ft robot!!
Robbie of course was incredible!! xx

Looking forward to next year already! xx
Paris Milan fashion week- Men spring/summer 2012
This week was men’s fashion week in Paris and Milan! For some reason, I have become completely obsessed with Paris and I soooo want to go this winter. I watch the episode of The Hills where Whitney and Lauren go and I really want to go.
Here are the pictures from Paris!
Prada have got Tobey Maguire to promote their Autumn/Winter range.
Usually using professional models , Prada are not known for their use of celebrities to endorse their clothing and collections. He swaps the spiderman outfit for the Prada after being selected by Miucca Prada to pose thoughtfully and broody.
