6 2 09

I FINALLY got a job interview the other day, with the vintage shop Rokit on Brick Lane, so hopefully I will be getting a job there soon! Fingers crossed!! Anyway, I digress...
I have been thinking a lot about prints and patterns lately, because I seem to be slipping into a habit of only wearing black - which is very rare for me! So I decided to make some outfits on Polyvore to get some inspiration. Notice how all of the outfits are for the summer! I've had my fun in the snow and now I'm ready for some sunshine.
I guess this post is quite selfish, because it's just me indulging in a little fantasy and dreaming up outfits I would make if I had the money!

Outfit 1 daytime:

Dress £45 from TopShop
Shoes £208 by Sonia Rykiel from Far Fetch
Bag from Miss Selfridge
Necklace £5.90 from Forever21

Outfit 2 daytime:

Dress £35 by Reko from TopShop
Shoes £470 by Fendi from Browns Fashion
Bag £93 from French Connection
Necklace £5.40 from Girl Props

Outfit 1 evening:

Leggings £29.36 from Lipsy
Shoes £23.60 from Sexy Shoes
Bag £1,483 from Chanel

Outfit 2 evening:

Dress £45 from TopShop
Shoes by Nicholas Kirkwood
Bag £85 from Rokit
Earrings from Forever21

I LOVE that first floral dress. I could see myself wearing that dress all of the time if I owned it. :)

I love how bold you are with textures and patterns! I'm much more meek, in my solids and stripes.

Loving the printed lipsy dress, and all the shoes are pretty much to die for, if not impossible to walk in. i'm waiting to hear about a placement interview as well, i hate this waiting game...

i think it's easy to get stuck habits we don't usually tend to lean toward at the end of a season when it comes to our dress. i know this is true for me - mainly out of boredom and for needing that environmental change to get my creative inspiration back in gear!

that polka dot frock is adorable.
