Fat Bottomed Girls Make The Rockin' World Go Round...

I have a massive arse. There said it. I don't actually care about its size but I would like to tone it a lot more. So its a fortune in the gym for me then. OR option 2 just cover it in Strumpet and Pinks knickers. More specifically the spectacularly, frothy, silk tulle Black Swan pair.

Also with these beauties on worrying about the tube blowing up my skirt would be a thing of the past! *wink*
But at £525 from Glamorous Amorous maybe that gym membership would be cheaper.

And until then fat bottomed girls remember, you make the rockin' world go round!

Sunny Sunday...

Do yourself a favour this beautiful day. Or on a rainy day. Either works when listening to this.

Sleepy time...

Would you pay £13 to have a nap? These people did....

Today at Kew Gardens. To be fair though, it was a lovely, warm day.

Alexander McQueen s/s11

Now I will say this was probably one of the most anticapated shows of all the fashion weeks. What would the label produce under Sarah Burton, who showed the first collection since he tragic death of the labels namesake earlier this year.

Well what she did create was a collection which remained true to the label, there were no major digressions away from previous themes and some shapes and prints appeared familiar. A quick search of the internet will find complaints about this collection being a "best of" and lacking the drama of collections produced under the man himself, but I think the first collection post Alexander was always going to be a tentative, testing of the waters for whoever took the healm what with the fans and followers McQueen had gathered over the years. Were she to reveal a complete revamp of the label would have more than likely seen the end of her career. I expect as she becomes more comfortable in her new position and people get used to the idea of her we will start to see more ideas presented in the shows (also no one complains when Chanel do monochrome or tweed suits). I, myself, look forward to seeing what Sarah Burton can come up with in future and congratulate her on a very nice first collection.

What do you think about this collection?

Liar, Liar..

Y'know what I love? The Inbetweeners. Who doesn't? I especially enjoy Jay's outrageous lies but don't forget people there are Jay's in real life too!!! And there's now a nice little website devoted to these tellers of tall tales. Billy Bullshit.

In Which Karl Lagerfeld Saves Courtney Love From The Kook....

Of course I enjoyed this, it has Courtney Love and sparkly bits.

Look after me and I'll look after shoe...

OK, OK, that is the last crappy, shoe related title I'm doing I promise. I just thought I would share this little shoe care article with you, y'know because shoes are expensive so you had better make them last! And I just wanted to add another tip I read somewhere recently but I don't remember where! Apparently if you put polish on your shoes before storing them in a cloth bag, you can just bring em out and buff 'em up! Voila!

Church's at
Oh and if I were to buy these lovely loafers to replace my £25 loafers I would most definitely be taking care of them.

Its not shoe, its me....

Free London...

You know the thing I hate most about interviews? Having to buy new interview clothes when the biggest reason you need a job is to get money. I have an interview Monday which would be fine if I could easily find smart, cheap clothing. I think I might have found a nice outfit in the end thanks to H&M but I did have to brave the Oxford Street Primark  for a belt. Just a belt!!! I couldn’t find one ANYWHERE!!! And I despise Primark. But it all made me think maybe if I’d have stuck to the Internet I would have saved myself all that hassle. In fact I would have just got this tea dress and some brown brogues and had done with it. But I didn’t I went to the shops, which brings me to my excitement of the day! Get yourselves to the Selfridges shoe galleries ASAP!

As well as wonderful window displays and thousands of shoes they have a photo booth where you can photograph yourself with a whole host of gorgeous shoes. For free! Me and my flatmate took full advantage of it and I will attempt to get the pictures on here tomorrow. No time now as I am off to see a band, for free!!!

I am pretty sure nobody warned me about the sheer boredom I would encounter as a student. Seriously. Without a job to gurantee a monthly boost to my bank account I am living in fear of spending all my loan and being left penniless and unable to buy magazines and pick and mix. You know, the important things. Thank heavens for the £3 wine in Tesco, but a girl cannot live on wine alone. Well she can but all i will achieve is weight gain and bad skin, oh and alcoholism! All I can do is hope the job fairy comes along soon and believe me when it does I will be relieving my boredom the retail way! Maybe a sequin dress would be just the ticket to brighten the dreary Autumn days? Or maybe hit up Brick Lane and score me some vintage goodies before consulting the Vintage Guide to London for some fun times?

I am also considering filling my days with baking or cooking, top of my wishlist is parkin my favourite Yorkshire autumn treat. But buying ingredients and then tins etc always seems so expensive. As Kanye said “Having moneys not everything, not having it is”.

Inbox Love...

Today I fell in love via E-mail not once but twice. You might too when you see the lovelies that popped into my inbox.
Every time Agent Provocateur send an email I know there's a massive possibility that theres going to be something inside to tempt me and today's email introduced me to Dasha and the classic Gangster in a lovely, new grey shade. Yes please.

This followed an email I recieved earlier from Nina and Lola in which I fell in love with this versatile MEGA scarf by Clarissa Labin.

 I have turned all Southern and soft it would appear and therefore I am freezing and its not even October so I think this would be perfect. Well it would if it didn't have a £235 price tag.

Sink your teeth into this...

Well the Christmas countdown has begun (3 months tomorrow!) but a whole 3 months of Christmas does get rather tedious, and besides its Halloween first which brings me to this post inspired by this little guy I have just spied at Fortnum and Mason.

Pretty cute for a vampire huh?

Looking for something to wear whilst eating him? Then check out Etsy's Halloween costume treasury.

This would be my top choice if I had money.

Or this if you fancied something a little spookier. Both from Romantic Threads.

Maybe you are staying in and want to be comfy but would still like to get into the spirit? Then I would recommend a Kigu, the black cat I feel is particularly suitable.

Christmas can wait, there is dressing up to be done!!!

Coral and Cobalt...

It just screams hot sun and cocktails to me and cheers me right up after all the other snoozeworthy collections.

Sorry for the lack of posts but I am now a student! Official. Enrolled and everything! Thats why I haven't been on the internet. No internet!!! I have it now though.
Due to my lack of internet I am super behind on looking at pictures of s/s11 but from what I am seeing so far its the same as last year so just keep hold of your leather/sheer/big knickers. Luckily I am living just off Brick Lane so I can get me plenty of vintage stuff until current designers decide to do something exciting.

I also have been told by uni that I am to pop alomg to the Grace Kelly exhibition at the V&A, no biggie was going to anyway. Its on til the 26th so if you wanna see how the old school did glamour check it out quick sharp.

I also quite fancy the Diagheliv and the Golden Age of the Ballet Russes exhibition, with costume collaboraters including Coco Chanel and Pablo Picasso it should be a nice little treat for the eyes.

Heres Looking At You Kid...

Today I have been watching Casablanca and practicing my goodbye face. I almost cried.

 Love the drama of the trailer.

Lights, Barbie, Action....

I didn't think I'd say that after the age of 10, but look shes a video camera now

And whats this? Barbie Wintour?

Tuesday, 7 September 2010


Roar! Yes I do have the worlds greatest boyfriend. Not only did I get a super awesome vintage dress but I got a dinosaur kigu!!! Apparantly my excitement was highly amusing. I have had it on a lot since. Its soooooo comfy. And has pockets!

Super mean. Grrrr.

I even have a tail!

And I did say I would put a better picture of the dress so here I am having a boogie!
But thats enough Deb for anyone.

I am a mega magazine addict. Seriously I love a new magazine so much. At times piles of magazines have threatened to trap me in my room and/or crush me to death in my sleep. So imagine my delight when I found this place. Magma Books. Holy heck. I promise myself I will wait til after the move though so I don't have to carry them all to London!

P.S. I found it while looking for somewhere I could purchase The Chap for my boyfriend, it sounds like the perfect magazine for him but the site only has subscriptions and we can't find a single issue in Leeds. But then I found it here! Hooray for me being a super girlfriend!

Lady in red....

.....Its my birthday soon!!!! Unfortunatley I will be in London away from all my besties and boyfriend :( Fortunatley I am going to celebrate early. Woohoo!!! Of course birthdays mean going out, drinking, dancing and possibly falling over, so what better to fall over in than a new outfit? Hooray!
Haha wonky or cheesy? I can't do photos.
But how awesome eh? Early birthday present from aforementioned boyfriend, bought for me while we were at Vintage Threads in Manchester. I was having a bad shopping day until someone handed us a flyer for a vintage fair.
And of course I needed new shoes.

I'll get proper non-blurry, akward posed pictures on Saturday I'm sure.
Last year I fell down the stairs and had to hang my shoes on a coat hanger in the cloakroom, so wish me luck this year. Seriously it was painful, I still can't lean on my elbow!

Farewell Summer....

Summer, summer wherefore art thou? I guess it has gone then? Sorry to keep posting back to school/autumn posts but I can’t escape the feeling!!! I do love autumn though; I think it’s my favourite time of year. And not just because my birthday is in September!!! I love everything about autumn. I love the colours of autumn, I love the bonfires/Halloweens, I love being able to eat sausage and mash without sweating! And I love the fact that there’s no better excuse for new clothes than dark nights and colder weather. I’m already on the hunt new boots (anyone know where I can get some?), and I recovered my woolly, ribbed tights from storage last week! I do think I have found my dream coat but I don’t have £295 and if I could try and save it but I might have suffered frostbite by then, but just look at the little beauty.

In this funny in-between season time I am lusting after light knits in pretty colours like this lovely bit of embellished knitwear which would also be perfect for spring and matches the colour of the hair I fell in love with in my last post. I can never resist a little bit of sparkle either. Swoon.

True Blue.... I love you.
Seriously considering a pink rethink. Especially after seeing this over at Scalpture.

I love it all. The colour. The cut. The roots.
Plus blue is more fitting for autumn/winter no?

Beauty School Dropout...

Been a while eh? I'm trying not to slip into my old habit of a few posts a month but I am a busy bee. Not really I'm just lazy.
Today has been a day of beauty or non beauty depending on how you look at it.

Jump Around.....

I said I'd post my first Etsy purchases, so after the headband comes the harness. Love it.

Excuse the picture I was very drunk at a lovely wedding, but it does show off the fabulousness of the chain rather well I think.

Schools out for summer.....

I think I'm beginning to get that "back to school" feeling. I don't think working in a childrenswear shop helps as we are really stocking up on uniforms! And I don’t think I am the only one. My fella just messaged me and said the radio is playing songs that remind him of his school days. It’s in the air!!!

All I want to do is buy new things. Pencils, pencil cases etc. I think I might treat myself to a few more Etsy purchases later in the month in order to satisfy this particular craving.

But as much as I love stationary, I love clothes more.

 I think this floral dress would be a perfect end of summer buy. Wear now with bare legs (ha this is England so maybe not) and sandals until the chilly weather and dark nights roll in, then don a pair of opaque’s and brogues. Add my gorgeous, trusty satchel from the Cambridge Satchel Ccompany and I think I have the perfect first day of school (uni) outfit. Oh and check out this post at Super Duper for some super sock suggestions and further proof that the back to school bug is spreading. Now where’s my conkers!??!

I said I'd take a picture of my Etsy purchases. Heres the first, super awesome chain headpiece from Bambi and Snowflake.

When I am rich and run out of ideas about how I should spend my money I will just throw parties and serve my guests via women with tables in their dresses.

....Argh! Just made my first Etsy purchase.
I've been registered for ages and have had loads of fun browsing, adding favourites, thinking hmmm.....maybe, but I just made my first real purchase! Excitement.

I'll post pics of me wearing as soon as they get here!!!
Well on my way to that Medieval wardrobe I was talking about.

Oh you pretty things....
