Micro Trend: Stripes Below the Waistline

I think I need some stripy tights/socks in my life. Also saw a girl wearing some wonderuss stripy tights during the sale at Liberty's - she tried some red shoes on with them and its looked freaking awesome!


Sorry for the lack of posting recently but I've started a work placement at a magazine (more on that later) and have been ill every other week for 2 months now, so I have hardly had time to READ other blog posts let alone write me own. I did manage to sqeeze in styling a Pierrot/circus inspired photoshoot during that time though.

Tim Burton's Alice Update

The fact that Tim Burton was going to direct a film version of Alice in Wonderland has been on my radar for quit sometime now and I've managed to find some sneaky peek pics on the internet

I must say, I'm a little disappointed with Alice's outfit - I was expecting/hoping for something more Gwen Stefani like. Also the dress underneath reminds me of the cut out jeans from House of Holland's latest collection - thats never a good thing right?

But apparently, this is an early make-up/costume test for Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter, which is more like it but don't quote me on that!
