fictional fashion

my fictional fashion hero's.
effy stonem is a huge fashion influence of mine. i think her style is amazing, she's beautiful, and although she never looks perfectly groomed due to her wild lifestyle on skins, she always looks stunning in an effortless way.
regina george plays the class bitch in the film mean girls. although her style is so feminine that its almost sickly, her beauty and trashy fashion cannot be ignored. the exact opposite of effy, her outfits are always perfectly matched and she never has a hair out of place.
phoebe buffay in friends has a style that can only be described as unusual. however this makes it all the more stylish. at the time, phoebe's style was considered clumsy and unfashionable; but now her style is equal to that of the modern day hipster. particularly in the early series, she would frequently support knitwear and clumpy shoes like doc martains. phoebe has turned out far more stylish now than she was at the time.

sci-fi fashion

at this moment i am watching a christmas special of doctor who, and the first person to come on set was a woman in a white body suit. i think it looks brilliant. science fiction is often mocked and connected to dorks, not fashion. but i think that great inspiration can be taken from this genre.
so here are a couple sci-fi inspired pieces that i found.

online stores

i love online shopping. i think that it's brilliant that i buy from shops that are only located in america or something. i just think it's so convenient. so this is my list of top 5 online stores to shop at.
1. urban outfitters. i love everything from this shop. the sizes on the website are accurate and it is simple to understand how to order. of course you may consider me biased because this is my favourite shop but i really recommend it.
2. black milk. i don't know if this company actually has shops, if they do i've never seen one. it's fairly simple to order from. i think that this website has some of the most beautiful clothes i've ever seen.
3. asos. asos is a really easy website to use and has a wide range of clothes. this can be brilliant, but it does take quite a while to find something you really want because of all the plain clothes that they supply.
4. topshop. i'm lucky enough to have a topshop store in my town, but for those who don't i would definitely recommend this site. topshop clothes are beautiful, also the site is organised and easy to use.
5. american apparel. the american apparel website is not very convenient to use. the layout is difficult and unappealing. however i think that despite that, it should still make the top 5 because it has such good clothes.

most fashionable 2011

2011 is coming to a close and i saw that nylon made a best dressed list. i was inspired by this. i will be doing a list of Top 4; best dressed of 2011.
1. emma watson is my number one best dressed this year. she has been my hero since 2001 (i was four) when she played are debut role as hermione granger. this year, the final harry potter film was released and as usual it was amazing. however in real life she has been a huge style icon. she looks beautiful and is always dressed perfectly. not to mention that while she is doing all of this, she has now taken on an oxford degree. she is definitely a style icon and an amazing role model.
2. florence welch definitely deserves a place in this list. i think she is amazing. she manages to be a brilliant musician and a style icon 24/7. for more details click here to a previous style crush post i made about her.
3. third in my list is felice fawn. felice fawn is my hero. her views on religion inspired me to stand up for my own opinions on the matter. she is endlessly wise and infinately beautiful. her style is nothing like mine, but i would have to be an idiot not to see the beauty in it. i cannot express enough, how wonderful this woman is.

4. in fourth place i want to put alexa chung. she has been my style hero for years now, and this year she's been amazing as always. she's the queen of the mod fashion and i think she's brilliant. she looks like she's stepped off the runway; effortlessly stylish. she's just fantastic.

christmas list cont.

i've added two new gorgeous items to my christmas list. two pairs of amazing leggings from blackmilk. i was so happy to fnd these because for a while now, i've been looking for some leggings that are interesting and not plain & dull.
  i love this pair with skeleton bones on them. i think these are brilliant because they will go with anything, just like regular leggings, but they are far more original and unique.
then these nebula leggings. i think that they are amazing and would be so fun to wear. they would be difficult to match with things but i think it would be worth it; just because they are so beautiful.

work experiance

so i'm doing my work experience next year in january and i've applied to urban outfitters. i was lucky enough to be given an interview with them! it would be such an honour to work there even just for a week.

knee high boots

looking through the vogue website and found that a current trend is knee high boots. this isn't something that i've noticed in my town, but i am thrilled to see that this trend is happening in winter. it is rare that fashion is appropriate for the seasons, but knee high boots are ideal for the colder months.
so here are afew knee high boots i found to go with the trend:


so i've already done one post on my christmas list, but things have changed. i still want the jacket but i no longer need the creepers. this is because i went to a vintage fair at the boileroom and got an amazing pair of double stacked, navy blue creepers for £10.
i was so thrilled when i found them and i can tell that these are going to become a much-used part of my wardrobe.
