up until recently, the paths of myself and H&M only cross when i'm in need of the basics; a white tshirt for work, school trousers, shirts, plain cardigans.. all the boring fashion necessities. and they have done me well, but never brought excitement to my wardrobe. it's always when my shopping trips are at their most unsuccessful that i venture to H&M, and i usually leave feeling more disheartened. but now, things have changed.

last week in covent garden, H&M was a world of MAGIC! i saw this jumper as soon as i walked in, grabbed the large and went to pay. no trying on, no wondering whether it's worth the money. the price, the shape, the christopher kane esq. animal WEIRD AND WONDERFUL-NESS.. it is all perfection. I have barely taken it off since i bought it. think it's love.... all for £14.99.

jumper - H&M - £14.99
trousers - H&M - £15.99
earrings - accessorize - £2
sunglasses - camden market - £5
shoes - office - £80

lipstick - topshop (hazzard) - £6

sorry for my absence from the blogging world for the last month or so, but it's all in the name of fashion. i'm back working at Obscure Couture (if you have never heard of them, don't dare read another word of this until you have stalked them until you can stalk no more), and have just got back from 3 weeks in london doing a fashion course at the INSANELY amazing Central Saint Martins. everything has been full steam ahead so i've only just had the time to get my little photographer friend to work her magic.

while i was in london i set aside a sunday specifically for the amazingness that is brick lane. brick lane is one of the most famous markets in london, and is without a doubt the best place for vintage shopping i've ever been. if you're one for a second hand bargain and happen to be in the big city, YOU'VE GOTS TO GO! anyway, on that particular day brick lane claimed far too much of my money (and my sanity), but in return bumped up my wardrobe with lotttts of it's vintage MAGIC. there's also some wonderously brilliant vintage shops in camden and covent garden that i love, along with many more throughout london that i am yet to find. if you know of any, COMMENT WITH DETAILS!!

some of my favourite shops that you should check out:

shirt - Rokit - £18
bracelet - Rokit - £5
sunglasses - Rokit - £6
leather skirt - H&M - around £10-15
shoes - Office - £80
