they made me buy it

Friday, June 25th, 2010

So, after giving myself a good talking to about how I need to start saving in time for University in September and no more clothes, shoes, accessories and the like until, well who knows, I went and raided the Topshop sale rails in the Manchester Arndale store and left with these rather lovely bargains – oh dear! I did get student discount and I did partially pay for it with the remains of an old gift voucher so it isn’t too bad, right? I promise not to buy anything else for a while (ish).

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

topshop summer sale – now on woohoo!

Thursday, June 24th, 2010

I just love it when I carry out my daily Topshop website check to see what is ‘new in’ when bam! I see that today is the first day of their summer sale! This makes me very giddy as I live just minutes away from the huge Manchester store where there are usually dozens of sale rails, but also very sad as I only get paid tomorrow and my bank balance is looking very unhealthy as of late (thanks to visits to London GFW, Scottish weddings, numerous meals out and impulse purchases…!) . For all of you who can splurge on a few end of the month purchases, click here for more …

P.S I had planned to show you my favourite sale items aswell but my internet connection has fallen out with me today.

graduate fashion week 2010

Saturday, June 12th, 2010

Hello! This Thursday myself and my friend Melissa went down to London to take a look at this year’s Graduate Fashion Week. We were both exhausted after catching the train at 6.11 am…! The morning ran much more smoothly than last year’s event when the entire London underground was on strike – eek! It took about 5 hours to get across from Euston to Earls Court (not so fun).

Graduate Fashion Week 2010

After being set uni summer projects before we start back for our final year at the University of Huddersfield in September, we were both after some much needed inspiration to get us back into design projects. Here are the photos I took of the best work I saw at GFW, sorry for not being able to include the student’s name and University – it was a little hectic down there! (please get in touch if you do know so I can rightly credit the photos with the designers name!)

We spent the afternoon shopping on Regents Street and Oxford Street before meeting up with our friend Joanne for tea and drinks. We are doing our design project on the gorgeous store Anthropolgie so it was great to finally get down to London to see the store for ourselves. Unfortunately we didn’t see much to buy in London but I did get a long black jersey maxi skirt (I’ve become a little obsessed with anything maxi …) and Melissa got a great pair of wedges from Primark with lace up detailing.
