Oh H&M

So I'm casually mooching through a website looking at different editorials and so on, you know seeing what going on the fashion world when this image places itself on the screen.
And BANG its Love. The beautiful two piece is for H&M's new summer collection. But can i find out when the collection comes out? Oh no of course not. But I am determined and will search the web every day till I own this beautiful beautiful outfit (an outfit that will be perfect for my cousins up and coming wedding this summer. Yes, I know, it's gotta be fate.) 
But however amazing this gold beauts number is we must not forget to mention the photographer, Andreas Sjodin and modeled by the striking Swedish Frida Gustavsson. The collection is styled with a modern 50s pin-up glamour style, with some of the outfits with a slightly sporty and Rockabilly edge. (I think this 50s historical project is affecting me quite a bit.)

I suppose I better show you the rest of the collection.

Oh God bless you H&M. <3

Since watching My Week With Marilyn (a brilliant film) I have been obsessing over the iconic Marilyn Monroe. And with the fact I have had to do a historical fashion shoot for the 50s for one of my current uni projects the fascination has only got worse. The result being me sitting on the internet for hours on end researching everything about her.
I so badly want to be her, however I think this is a little beyond reach so I will just have to be happy with the fact that wearing black eyeliner is about the closest I'm going to get.

One of the most beautiful women in the world. Marilyn Monroe.

So our first Uni project we had to use a word to create 5 items for a pop-up shop. A t-shirt, a swing tag, a event invitation, a perfume packaging and a magazine cover. I used the word Sin to name and distinguish my brand, all my products revolving around this word. I used influences from the Story of Adam and Eve. Thought I'd post the magazine cover on here.
I loved the outcome especially as a lot of work went into the idea and the process. The model is my housemate and dear friend Rosie Mason, who i want to thank A LOT for getting her boobies out for me.

The Blazer.

Every trip to Brighton or any place that has any shops at all I can't blady help myself. Today I was dragged into Zara. And I fell in love.
However at £79.99 I restrained myself and ran out the shop. (After trying it on and swanning around the shop in it for a while, savouring our last moments together.)
I will continue to dream and hope that maybe one day we will be together.
