Red Patent ♥ Wallet

Yay, I have finally bought something with my money to keep my money in! Ironic? I know!
Now I'm earning all this hard earned cash I needed something to put it in didn't I? After walking all over town with no luck, (damn those sales) I finally ended up in one of my favourite shops in Brighton Lanes, Lulu Rose. Red Patent with white fringing and gold heart emblem I had to have it! Check out the poka-dot inner lining as well! The selling point for me however, was the clip on strap to turn this wallet into a shoulder bag and all for under £15, yes please!

I got the Job!

Ok so I haven't mentioned that I went for an interview last Friday. The reason being that I thought it very unlikely that I would get it. However I got the confirming phone call this morning and as from this Wednesday I will be a
Jack Wills employee.

After the very scary interview where about 20 of us
(yes 20!) had to sell three garments in pairs (I had to sell a candle, shampoo and leggings) to the group and play a game involving a very big pair of knickers, I felt my chances to work for Jack Wills very slim but I pulled through and got it!

The contract will be for 6 weeks which is ideal as I am heading back to sunny Bournemouth at the end of September to start my 2nd year!
For those of you who do not know of Jack Wills here is some information:

Jack Wills was established in 1998 in Salcombe, Devon. Their target audience is between 18 and 22 aiming at the 'student' age. The Jack Will's Brand is particulary preppy, focusing on sports style including polo, rugby and rowing. Their brand is typically British and inspired by traditional British Heritage. The Company has a policy that they do not have too many stores and do not have stores in shopping malls, the reason being that they want to be exclusive.
Jack Wills is therefore promoted through word of mouth which includes events and tours. They also brand alot of their clothing to make it reconsiable as the Jack Wills signature. Jack Will's is about having fun and living the student life!

New H&M in Brighton!

Its been a month since the launch of the new H&M store which opened on the 25th of June.

I have finally given in and gone for a visit
(without purse in hand).
I was not disappointed, three floors of Women’s, Men's and Children's wear including maternity, underwear and accessories. It was my little bit of heaven.
What was great about the store was that it was split into smaller sections which gave the feeling of exploring smaller caves within one great big cavern. Yes I did get lost, but who can complain when you are surrounded by beautiful pieces of clothing at very affordable prices. I literally danced across from one garment to the next. It was only when my brother grabbed me by the cuff of my coat and dragged me out the store that I was brought back to reality. Yes I have no money and still a way long way from getting out of my overdraft I know I won't be able to afford anything yet, but that won't prevent me from entering those shiny new doors for very long.

Lapin Lust

Louis Vuitton Autumn 2009 Ready-to-Wear collection.

What I love about fashion is that there is no limit of designer's creativity when it comes to creating something new. This was defiantly seen in Marc Jacobs new collection for Louis Vuitton Paris show. Inspired by cancan dancers we see a revival of 1980's padded shoulders, lace, ruching and ruffels galore. Including hair accessories of...bunny ears?
'Bunny ears! Thats what we need to finish this look!' said Jacob.
The bunny ears made from Radzimir and Satin were defiantly an eye catching accessorie and funnily enough I found myself lusting over these 'Lapin' ears.
Have we all gone hopping mad?

Were not the only ones, check out Madonna modelling for the new Louis Vuitton collection in below!

I ♥ Kylie

I am loving the new collection for TOUS jewellers. Kylie Minogue's Secret Party is the new TOUS ad campaign. Wearing a pink couture gown, Kylie playfully poses amongst balloons, cake and sweets, confetti covered floors and a giant teddy bear whilst dripping in TOUS jewllery and accessories. This is an ad which has a little bit of sugar and a little bit of spice and alot of jewellery which is defiantly nice!

Romantic Soul Photoshoot

Model Katie Roberts
Photographer Emily Smith
Stylist Victoria Smith

Photoshoot for my Image and Communication project. My words were Romantic Soul, so I looked at fairytales. Focusing on Cinderella, Snow White, Rapunzel, The princess and the Frog and Sleeping Beauty. I was very pleased with this photoshoot although next time I want to give it a bit of edge, the reason being that I think these photographs look too pretty!
