of mice and men

Ee hiya. Yeah so, we have a mouse visitor. We decided to call him Stevie Wonder for some reason one night in the pub. Which is where I seem to be spending all my life when I'm not at work these days. Oh well.

But yeah, yesterday we was scurryin' around and he went under my bed we think so we barricaded him in with pillows and I bought a non-lethal mousetrap off eBay so we can return him to his natural habitat.

I got really worried he would starve to death though so I put a weetabix and some water under there for him.

My awesome buddy Nicola gave me this American Apparel skirt 'cause she never wears it and I was in the shop about to buy one aww fanx pal.
Stolen ex-bf tee.
 I'm sorry but I'm fully embracing socks with sandals. Especially with these Topshop guys. They wreck my feet. I guess what else do you expect from there though. Other than falling apart.
Got a bit creative with the nails, with Barry M gold and then blue crackle over the top.

This is my I-had-too-much-wine-and-no-food-last-night look. 

It actually made the day bearable even though I thought I'd be a tired achy mess. Cosy.

My boots look gross there, they're actually just pretty nice Chelsea boots, mad even cooler by the fact that I got them off eBay as "jodhpur boots" which made them way cheaper.

Past couple of days has been a blur of black, grey and neon yarns with a lot of meeting friends for post-work drinks thrown in.

Apparently I'm "burning the candle at both ends.

Oh hey.

Can't even be bothered to explain my life inbetween now and last time, but the crack is, I'm living in London and doing a year in industry out from my Fashion Design course.

Currently on a work placement at the awesome Cooperative Designs.

I've been there just over two weeks, I'm having so much fun and learning a lotttt.

Right now we're finishing off production stuff for their Autumn/Winter 2011 collection, some of which is factory manufactured, some of which we have to make in the studio. This is getting sent to be sold in a variety of stores including Urban Outfitters, ASOS and Young British Designers.

Stuff I've been working on/made up include:

 This mohair hoodie and balloon skirt,
 this mohair and lambswool layered maxi skirt,
and these knitted camo pants.

I promise to keep you updated!

nothing special

Pretty standard clothing choice really.

Rocking socks with sandals, fuck what they say.

Music I like at the minute:

Ticket Man - The Kills

Heartbreak Hotel - Elvis Presley

Over You - Cat's Eyes

Hey so wow, haven't been on here in a while. Lotta stuff been going on, I'll probably fill you in later.
Got an email from Joe Browns inviting me to a fashion event in Leeds because of my blog, and it made me realise I should probably make more of an effort, especially as I actually have stuff to blog about now living in London and interning at some awesome fashion placements.. more on that later.

Quick shnapps before I head to work:

Soz about the quality.

Most of this stuff is presents; shirt from Lucy, necklace from Nicola and hand-tie dyed socks from Howski.

It was my birthday people don't just give me stuff.

I look like a total hipster and I don't even care.
