Paris (+ OOTD)

To take some pressure off post-exam and pre-result stress and hysteria, I was able go travelling all around Europe with a bunch of close friends. Whilst train-hopping through central Europe, we encountered castles and monuments, bizarre local cuisines and equal amounts of both casual misogyny and fetishisation (think comments containing the terms 'Beyonce', 'Milk chocolate' and, my personal favourite, 'Nubian queen'. Other than the occurrences mentioned, along with missing trains and going way over budget in certain situations, it was a trip of a lifetime and, in the least Disney Channel way possible, taught me a lot about myself and others. To top the trip off however I went to Paris with one of my best friends, Maria, for a slightly less hectic and more metropolitan end to the trip. We were able to make the most of our trip, seeing almost every sight possible despite making very poor clothing and shoe choices day-in-day out. I only managed to photograph one OOTD on my iPhone so be warned of questionable image quality, but below are also photos of our adventures...

Shirt - Zara (aka ethical armageddon)
Jeans - Topshop
Bralette - Brandy Melville
Sunglasses - Vintage
Shoes - Vintage
I mean it when I say long time no see. I've been crap, no, abysmal at this thing, admittedly and fairly obviously. Exams, constantly plundering motivation in every way shape and form in a creative context and even the temptation to give up blogging etc. can be used to explain my AWOL attitude towards this in recent days but I came to a number of conclusions from my absence
1. I will regret pressing the delete button in the long run
2. No.1 is a fact
3. Posting something - an outfit, a thought, hell, even a rant - is better than wiping my presence off the blogosphere entirely
4. I shouldn't be so perfectionist with this whole thing. Not to say the future of looklovewear will be scruffy with collosal effing and jeffing, but I need to remember that this is not Vogue, just a little site on my 14 inch screen so I should take it easy, no matter how shit (there it is!) iPhone quality photos may be

OOTD: Levi's and Fishnets

Jeans - Vintage (Levi)
Jumper - Kowadakowa
Bag - And Other Stories
Fishnets - Depop
Boots - Vagabond
Earrings - MyAsho
After losing an SD card and being to pedantic about posting more iPhone outfit/beauty/life photos, I'm back with another mediocre outfit. It's been over a month since I last posted, which I honestly feel quite crappy about, but I've returned. Although I will soon be entering the firey depths of hell, also known as A-Levels, hopefully blogging will become an outlet to share stuff or just rant about this-and-that...I couldn't think of anything worse than teaching myself the logistics of the British Economy for 5 hours daily...
This was a pretty casual outfit, taken from an afternoon in Camden Town. I'll happily admit that I actually like the ripped-jeans-and-fishnets trend probably plaguing your Instagram feed at this very moment, but that it did not keep me from just about freezing :)

OOTD: Red Turtleneck

Jumper - Hugo Boss
Jacket - Burberry (Vintage)
Flares - Forever 21
Shoes - Vagabond
Earrings - DIY
First of all, apologies for the poor image camera died so had to resort to the slightly more democratic iPhone 5 for outfit pictures...anyway, today I went to Brick Lane with a friend and, despite the fact that the sun has started to make a come-back appearance (I bet it won't last long), I had to layer up. Here I am unsuspectingly wearing about two more shirts under my jumper but besides that, I have really been in to the colour red recently, hence the scarlet turtleneck. Despite the fact that I don't have a lot of this in my wardrobe currently, I am dying to get more red and colourful items of clothing in the near future (R.I.P. bank account) instead of wearing black, black, and more black...but let's see how that goes...
