Has been a good week so far ... lots of drawing when I should be doing essays, lots drinking smoothies on the way to school, lots of ideas coming in AND my ma said I could have her old Doc Martens which is brilliant.
Above, you can see snaps of my new mini project. I'm making glam elbow patches ... well I'm not sure to what extent you can call elbow patches glam, but you know what I mean! They are quite labour intensive to sew (I think I should use bigger beads next time), but I am determined to finish a pair and I think they will look alright. I may even put some in the etsy shop because it's looking a bit dead.
Also, check out the pressed penny!! YEAHHA! How brill? (I admitt I am a bit of a pressed penny loser). Betty sent it to me in the post last week from Japan. It's definetley my favourite in my collection now and it's super shiny.
Sorry, but my mum has just called me for din dins and I better go and eat!

I hope that you are all absolutely brilliant. I have been mega busy with school, drinking lots of smoothies, doing yoga and listening to lots of the Royal Tenenbaums soundtrack. Its soo annoying for once I actually have money for clothes and now I can't find anything that I would wear in the shops.
Well, I did get something pretty exciting in the post from a family friend last week. She had read this entry about my Burberry jacket and decided to send me a shirt - how cool and thank you Eileen!

To be honest when it comes to fashion week I just wait for that supplement that comes free from Vogue that shows you the best of. However, in private study today I couldn't help but be tempted by a bit of Marc by Marc Jacobs. And woahh, what an awesome palette and the marshmallow shoes - I think I would wear every piece pretty happily. And if these pictures don't convince you, these definitely will!

Tatty Devine's new a/w 09 collection is out and it is jolly good. I love Tatty Devine sooo much, it's run by the loveliest girls ever and I can always be assured that no one else in my school will be wearing their jewellery (well they probably wear poor topshop imitations!). Their work is always fun and can perk up those days when you just want to wear a sloppy tshirt and jeans. My favourite was the Pierrot ring followed closely by the Hobby Horse brooch. At the weekend my Dad gave me a sample Tatty heart necklace which I love to pieces.
What's your favourite piece of jewellery you own?

Okayyyy. Hello. This post is a bit lazy, sorry that none of the photos are my own.
So this afternoon when I was in Peter Jones (sadly one of my fave shops) doing my back-to-school rounds, I was shocked to see that the 1st floor had Henry Holland tights, yeah? A bit too cool for Sloane Square, was my initial thought as well. Thinking of getting a pair, not too sure which colour yet ... black ... pink ... not too sure and they're only a tenner a pair.
Love, love, love St Trinians sooo much (even the one with Paloma Faith in it). I'm secretly proud of being photographed by the costume lady for the next film, on one of my scruffiest days running to the bus stop on the way home from school. Eurgh, I still can't believe I'm still in school uniform at seventeen, it is quite ridiculous (though I do secretly love my shapeless, shoulder-padded maroon blazer and itchy skirt!) , I don't know how some of my friends choose what to wear everyday.
Teenage Jodie Foster, just brilliant. Pity her later films are all a bit shit.
Anyway, I best go and polish my shoes and iron my shirts.
Have a super evening.
I'll try and do some posts next week, maybe?
