Free your Mind and the DRESS will Follow

 Today I'm Wearing: mock-croc clutch, H&M long cardigan and gold chain, TOPSHOP dress, and Irregular Choice shoes.
This recent Topshop dress is amazing: super light, comfortable and has contrasting prints on the front and back panels which makes it more interesting. The front (seen above) is a silky flowered print and the back is a cool retro repeat print of grey diamonds and circles. Long necklaces are my favourite as they instantly slim down and elongate a short torse and I've jazzed up this grey outfit with some of my Irregular Choice shoes in a hope it will also jazz up this grey weather....

Bend Me, Shape me

The past few months have been full of changes in lots of areas and although I'm not blogging as much as I'd like (due to an absent boyfriend/photographer and a serious lack of Internet) here are some of the most exciting things going on the with world of Fashion Crowd:

Inspiration (above) - new projects for fashion, my friends and what they're sporting, and a recent trip to a NAP sample sale has really got me excited about fashion and how it can be incorporated into both my wardrobe and styling projects.

Re-inspiration - going through my closets back up north in my home town I've rediscovered a load of old things which have re-inspired my wardrobe too!

My Personal Style (above) has changed quite a lot recently - now my hair is longer (finally) I've been able to experiment more and there has also been the recent fringe cut in. It was meant to be a Zoey Deschanel type thing but it turns out that it just makes me look more Asian and the maintenance is tiresome. If you like you hair sans fringe, don't get one cut in!

My work  (above) Style is ever evolving especially since I've been exposed more so to some great photo shoots including a Mary Katrantzou and a Peter Pilotto shoot for Moda Operandi - one of the fastest growing online fashion boutiques at the moment. Making mood boards is half the fun - brainstorming looks, colours, combinations of clothes and accessories is so enjoyable; then putting them into action watching it come together is super satisfying.

Life - the snow, birthdays, moving house, art exhibitions, family visiting have all played a massive part in the Fashion Crowd aesthetic.

This spring I'm so excited about the spacey shiny trends and the neon brights found all the over the high street at the moment. Today I'm wearing a neon pink, mullet-hemmed dress from TOPSHOP. It's a really special day today - I'm wearing bright colours to honour the life of someone extremely special in my family and we celebrated her life this afternoon.

 Dress - TOPSHOP
2 flower headbands (worn as an armband) - Primark
Metallic shine coral sandals - Dorothy Perkins
Wet look leggings - H&M

Screwed, Blued and Tattooed...

It's sunny in London today but not so hot to go bare legged. These fun tattoo-esque tights are a great way for an extra layer on your legs but also maintaining the spring vibe. These Cut off Levi's were once customised with blue lace frilly fringing and this season they've been updated again by removing the lace and taking another inch from the length to show the pockets underneath.

I'm also wearing my favourite vintage tee - its got a cut out neckline and beaded gold and pearly - so no need for accesorising! 
Today I'm wearing : Levi's cut offs, vintage tee, Topshop tights, Versace belt, Topshop clutch/laptop case and Primark wedges.
