Brick Lane

Today I bring you not just one, but two different outfits! These were taken on a grand day out to Brick Lane, on one of my favourite blogger streets, Princelet Street. I went along with Lucy, a childhood friend and person I had pretty much fallen out of contact with until recently. Lucy is undoubtedly one of the most vivacious people I've ever met, so she's always so much fun to hang out with. We spent many happy days back home in Oxfordshire getting dressed up and taking countless photos (usually of Lucy jumping, because she just insisted on it) and then uploading them for the wonderment of our school friends on Bebo, so you could say that Lucy inspired my career aspiration to take lots of photos of myself, and as a consequence, was a small part of the conception of this fair blog. Anyway, we spent a marvellous afternoon together taking a selection of genuinely hilariously terrible photos in the Rough Trade photo booth, nearly crying with laughter in the Blitz London changing rooms, and eating burgers at the Big Chill.

Coat - Topshop
Cardigan - Monki via Asos (sold out)
T-shirt - Primark
Bralet - Asos (sold out)
Disco Pants - AA via Charity shop
Trainers - Converse
Bag - Choies
Necklace - C/O Punky Pins

It's pretty funny looking back through the outfit photos we took because I'm pretty much laughing in every one, as Lucy was screaming 'YAS DARLINK, WERK!' at me whilst I was trying to pull my serious blogger poses. Luckily there were a few saving graces!

There's quite a lot of colour clashing going on in this outfit (shocker). This t-shirt is from Primark, and I love it because it reminds me of Christopher Kane's flower organza pieces from Summer 2012, sort of like someone has pressed some flowers on to my torso, definitely a look I can get on board with. Under it I'm wearing a Asos bralet to save my modesty! I also pulled out my disco pants from the back of my wardrobe, and I think I'll wear them more often, as they're really comfortable for casual wear. I rolled them up at the bottom and added my orange converse, making this a quite transitional outfit, as we're seeing some promise of hotter weather in London (I'm English, all I ever want to talk about is the weather, ok).

This is Alfred Hitchcock and I, who I'm sure would be thrilled to know that he would be making appearances on a fashion blog posthumously. His influence definitely adds to the outfit right?

Lucy is one of those people who cannot keep still, which I think sabotages any possibility of a career as a fashion blogger. I must have taken 50 photos of her in various ridiculous poses, but that's what I love about her! We got a few street style worthy ones though, showing off her dress (which I think she got from the East End Thrift Store) and fur coat. The colours complement her beautiful hair so well.
