Living in a Material World!

21:09








Shirt- ASOS, Jacket- H&M, Gloves- Beyond Retro and everything else thrifted.

First of all sorry for the MASSIVE delay in posting. I have been so busy, and right now I'm meant to be doing GCSE work; I've got all my exams and deadlines approaching- and it's hell (just a year and a half to go...).


So the idea behind the little shoot? Tackyness. It's become more and more and more fashionable; with unicorns popping up here and there to wearing that jumper your granny knitted you. So I decided to take it just that step further. I ventured into the land of those who are devoured in cheap fake tan (a.k.a tango cream), acrylic nails, skirts that barely cover their derriers and hair extensions. I think you get the picture. Now of course I wasn't going to do any of the above materialistic options...but I was going to invest in fake designer bags (not just because I'm a budget teenager *wink wink*).  I could never betray the designers, so I decided to be ironic, by shouting out to you that they're FAKE! Gosh It's so fun to walk around and just pretend that you're holding a real Prada bag, yet still having the pride to casually say 'oh it's fake'. So to reflect all of this in the photos I added the 'Free for Cleaning' sign (that originally was on my bedroom door)- it's meant to reflect the self-absorbed little materialistic bubbles that people are in who invest in fake designer bags in order to look rich or 'on-trend'. Oh, and the irony of having 'Material Girl' by Madonna on replay at this moment in time. 

Anyhow, the world of homework awaits. Though I do have some mega exciting news! There will be a giveaway in the next post ( and better than the last) for all you amazing followers- so stay tuned!

  18. Oh my, I have the urge to get out my boa collection. I feel like most people think of cheesy 80's outfits and dance recital costumes when thinking of tacky, but I think people with truly amazing style see it differently and can make it look amazing like you obviously have.
