Nostalgic Trips

I watched Factory Girl earlier and was reminded off my love for Edie Sedgwick, not just as a style icon. In my eyes she was one of the most idiosyncratic women of the 60s, some many argue that was a result off the copious amounts of amphetamine but I like to think otherwise. Her style was so rebellious for her time, well at least for someone with a background as prestigious as hers, compare her style to the likes of Jackie O*, it just amazes me when you think how to people living the same America at the same time could dress like complete polar opposites. (Not that I don't appreciate the style of Jackie O). I imagine the majority of you reading this will have heard of Edie Sedgwick and Warhols' silver Factory, but, in case you haven't, or just fancy some mutual appreciation for this personified roman candle, here's a little clip of her dancing.

Bonjour mes cheris.

Bow - Primark
Sonic Youth T-shirt- Urban Outfitters
Blue Skater Skirt - H&M
Black Belt - Topshop
Black Cardigan - H&M
Satchel - Vintage
Skull Ring - Galibardy
Leather Loafers - Topshop

             Hello people, I'm new to all of this, but it seemed like fun so I joined in. At the moment my camera has broken, which is ridiculously annoying, so I'm relying upon a bad quality web cam and Blackberry, hence the ABYSSMAL quality of photography, the lighting is also really poor as I'm taking photos in my bedroom at halls. Today's outfit was quite relaxed, I love my Sonic Youth t-shirt, I can wear it with just about everything. I bought the loafers yesterday in the Topshop sale, I have wanted them since Topshop first started selling them so to finally have them, and for only £18, made me one happy bunny. They're selling some similar pairs this season, I think they're a great buy as they're such a versatile item. My ring was a Christmas present from my boyfriend, I am in love with it, just so scared of loosing it. I think Galibardy is a great website , its still relatively unknown and they sell unique pieces at very reasonable prices. Obviously, the majority of the jewellery is made from brass, so ensure you buy some brass cleaner to maintain the items, so they don't rust or leave nasty green marks on your skin.
