Metallic Pills.

21:02



Pilar Vidal- one of the Brands at the Pure show. Couldn't resist putting up the flyers. So for all the brands out there I suggest you attach dolls to your flyers.

Helen Rochfort Handbags- 50's shape with phycadelic vibes and pop art styled. One of my fave brands at the show. 





What I wore to the Pure Spirit Trade show (I was listening to Courtney Cox and Babylon Zoo at the time, whilst flicking through 80's records such as Siouxsie and the Banshees; at the time of creating the outfit)  :
White Shirt-Asos, 
black shirt- H&M, 
Metallic top-vintage, 
studded choker and chain - Mum's from the 80's, 
Skirt- Gap, 
Bag- ?(A Goth shop in the Isle of wight...) , 
Shoes- Office


A rather successful weekend, I managed to venture to Camden and then in Contrast visit the Pure Trade show. For once I had money(!!!!!!), due to last week being my birthday. I managed to purchase a few bits and bobs, that you can see in my next post. The Pure trade show, shows all the latest brands collections'- SS11 and AW11. The Pure Spirit section is more so a showcase of the difusion range/ younger range of brands, and Pure London has the extra touch of class added to the brands. Sadly due to the hectic schedule  (I was literallty running around with 10 mins to spare from place to place: Dance to Camden, Camden to 'one-of-those-family-get-together-thingys', homework to the wild Londoners of the tube, the tube to the Pure show, Pure show to Grandma's. You get the gist, sorry for the rather unnecessary and irrelevant weekend schedule), I only got time to see Pure Spirit. With freebies on offer how could any teenager resist? I managed to find myself with free copies of  Drapers; a trend Bible and Notion Magazine at the end. There were some utter cutesy granny chic brands, floral heavens, 50's chic, and florescent street style brands (including Lazy Oaf). From seeing the AW11 brand collections, the high street seems to be gripping more than ever onto dainty 50's and 60's styled garments, except there's an exuberance of bright colour and print. Creating the perfect combo of granny chic- I think I'll be borrowing my Grandma's clothes more often. Texture still a key element for updating the look, with new fabrics such as plastics and satins bursting in. AW11 is going to be fun to play around with, so much so I cannot literally wait- Ebay here I come. 



 P.S: I think it's fair enough to say GaGa has outdone herself with arriving at the Grammy's in an egg designed by Hussein Chalayan. Wouldn't it be cool if we could all arrive to place like that or maybe have Hussein Chalayan design something for us? Trying to keep the week optimistic; with a much awaited half term approaching.

  3. thanks for your super sweet comment :)

    in actual love with this outfit - the skirt, shirt and shoes especially!
    i used to be a loyal gaga monster but idk, now i'm just getting a bit tired of her. her new album i find awful! fame monster was sooo good but born this way sounds like it's come from glee/ too madonna-esque and her other songs are too technoey. the egg thing is really cool but apparantly she stayed in there beforehand for 3 hours to "get into character" - is that really necessary? i think she's all for the attention really ox
