UNIVERSITY: FASHION MATERIALS AND FORM

Today I researched two ideas to add to my "nest" as I am now a "Magpie".
 
My first idea is 'Breakfast at Tiffany's' -
 
During the last week of college I decided to rent filmsfrom the library for the last time. I came home and fell in love with the romantic visuals and Audrey Hepburn's tapestry bag and George Peppard's eyes. Here are a few images I have collected so far:






My second idea is 'Minimalism'-
 
I'm a clean freak. Precise, monotone and neatness is the key. Here are a few images I have collected so far:

UNIVERSITY: FASHION MATERIALS AND FORM

I recieved my second brief last week with the title "Fashion Materials and Form".
 
The idea is to use the idea of a magpie as an example to gather research,which stem from a number of opposing ideas whih must be articulate and considered. I am thankful that this week is "reading week" in which I plan to research ideas everyday.
 
Today I was inspired by 'EASTERN CULTURE - here are a few images I have collected:

How beautiful? The weather we are recieving in England is utterly depressing. This collection makes me want to walk through a field full of flowers, hand in hand with someone whilst eating and Twister ice cream. Not long now!

As I had the day off I decided to go shopping for clothing essentials for University. I found this lovely little number in my local Hypnotic. Most of the clothes in there are so CHEAP and TACKY I feel like crying. On occasion I have found numerous amounts of Topshop items so I always have hope when searching through the rails.


I also found a see throuugh black beach dress in which I plan to wear with a bralette and high waisted items. I love the plaited tie belt that is placed upon the wasitline. As petite as I am it helps to show off the little curves I do have...I promise.
 

I was intially on the hunt for a leather biker jacket but I'm not keen on the idea of buying a PVC leather jacket when I can save and buy a real leather one. This resulted into a little walk out of town to COW Vintage Birmingham in which I found NOTHING but walked out with a few urban magazines.

 
...and last but not least I think this is the bargain of the day. PRITT STICKS at 25p each when they are usually £1 each...so good I grabbed 12! 
 
Top: Hypnotic (£2.99)
Beach Dress: H&M (£3)
Magazines from Cow Vintage (Free)
Pritt Sticks: Big Deal (25p each)

The perks of working for an Arcadia brand retail store is the fact I get discount in many shops.
 
Today I was on the hunt for a pair of jeans but ended up buying a handful load of jewellery.
 
 
 
I worked it out and it should have paid over £30 for all of this if it was full price....but instead why not pay £3.60 ay?
