Dark layers for spring

Yesterday I went into town with my mum to choose a new fashion book for my collection.

I wanted something that actually had the potential to inspire me, as well as featuring beautiful imagery. We looked through a variety of book at both Magma and Waterstones and I ended up choosing the Alexander McQueen book that accompanied the V&A exhibition, edited by their senior curator, Claire Wilcox.

On the way back to the car, we spotted a nice, white corredor, ideal for taking outfit pictures in.

Smokey layers

A couple of weeks ago, I attended my friend Cassie’s graduate exhibition at the Foundation Coffee House in Manchester. A couple of days earlier we had been shopping and I picked up a long tunic-style skirt and some lace brogues from H&M, which I decided to incorporate into my outfit. I don’t think I’ve ever bought such inexpensive shoes before but they are beautiful and surprisingly comfy.
