Shopping is a very depressing affair atm. I am counting the days until my student loan returns and saves me! For the winter I think I will continue my uniform of denim shorts for as long as I can endure, except replace the t-shirts with shirts. I love the burgundy mesh top from Topshop and was thinking it would be quite easy to accessorise and wear at night time as well. The brogues are made my Dolce and Gabbana, normaly I'm a bit of a square when it comes to footwear, most of my shoes are only black/brown or grey. I think these are great, they would easily add a quirky edge to any outfit.

The black skirt reminds me of one I saw on Morrvisey's blog, its a great piece for both summer and winter and only £25 from Miss Selfridge. They have amazing maxi skirts on the website atm.

Those amazing black platforms are from ASOS. I posted these in response to Manolo Blanhik's comment, that the platform is dead. I hope this isn't the case, as I am a lover and over the past few years the wider variety of heels available has been brilliant. I prefer platforms anyway, they're so painfree.

Favourites for this Autumn

 These were some of my favourite pieces shown in London this Spring. I love Giles Deacon's edgy pieces, he is one of my favourite British designers. It would seem like leather is back in this season, as he was not alone having a more rough and ready collection. Alexander McQueen, Viktor and Rolf and Louis Vuttion are some of the few names who incorporated a darker palette and violent embellishment on their garments.
 Burberry is such a classic label, I would feel rather un-British not featuring some pictures from their show. Unlike Giles, the designs are a lot brighter and bold, another common theme on the catwalk for this fall. Jonathon Saunders, Mario Schwab and Diane von Furstenberg lead the way this autumn with their bright and clashing prints. I love their new take on the classic feminine pieces.

So I haven't blogged in absolutely ages, except I am determined not to give up this time no matter HOW busy I am. This summer I have been obsessed with denim shorts/skirts and t-shirts, its pretty much been a uniform. I've had to work with a limited wardrobe as money has been impossible to find, I spent all the money from my previous job on god knows what.

Anything by Pavement has been the soundtrack to my summer, I hope you enjoy this track lovely people.
