Hi girls! Hope you are all good, I'm currently trying to multi task this essay that's due in this week, while doing this blog post. It's tricky, quite tricky haha. Lets hope I don't start referencing Roland Barthes' theory in this post... This week I've been glued to my laptop typing, spell checking, more typing and then more spell checking. A girl once told me that the third year of uni was the easiest - that girl lied to me haha. If I'm not trying to finish my essay, I'm wearing my yummy sushi pyjamas watching Buffy episodes with Louise. We're up to season 5 now ;) Oh, we also made ourselves a roast dinner on Sunday. It had cranberry sauce and everything! Pretty swish indeed, although we did watch Aladdin while we ate it so less glamorous there haha. Louise said I reminded her of the Genie, I don't know whether that's a compliment or not haha. Have you watched any Disney films lately? I finally went to the cinema and saw Breaking Dawn. I'll be honest with you gentle, readers. I wasn't as impressed as I thought I'd be. Maybe it's because I didn't get nachos when I watched it?
Okay, lets start with the outfit trend. I've been doing my usual research on websites and magazines and I can see that the 20's are coming back with a bang. 100% feathers, 100% tassels and 100% glamour. I love this trend because it's very old Hollywood. Stella McCartney and Calvin Klein did a great collection for this fall and of course gold was a main factor. I personally think that wearing everything inspired by the 20s can be too much for a day time look, but wearing a few elements will really make your outfit pop! The black bandeau dress from Rare is out of stock at the moment (I've looked everywhere, but feel free to post the link below if you find it!) but I think this going out dress is perfect for giving off the 20s vibe. The dress that Cher Lloyd wore for the Cosmopolitan Ultimate Women of the Year Awards was 1920s inspired. I love how Hollywood she looks in it. Let me know what you think of this trend. ♥
