OOTD: Long Time

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...

Couture Fashion Week : The Round-Up

Obviously, I didn't  cop a ticket, transport myself to Paris, immerse myself with fashion royalty and drown  in champagne and macaroons, but flicking trough photos from online journals and hogging a pack of digestive biscuits did the trick...and here are my favourites from this year's Spring Couture Fashion week...
1. Margiela - The brand's collection was inspired by the notion of disguise which comes along with modern day use of social media such as Snapchat. What I liked the most is how he used this concept successfully without making the collection look childish or gimmicky - LOOK AT THE ARRANGEMENT OF THE TULLE!? (Images: Dazed and Confused)
2. Alexandre Vauthier - Although the designer sent his models down the catwalk in leather and denim for an cooler take on couture, I loved the dresses which combined shape, texture and embellishement to give the pieces an edge. (Images: WWD)
3. Chanel - As per-usual, Karl Lagerfeld pulled out all the stops to produce an outlandish show. Whilst some of the dresses were a bit too 50s housewife or walking cream-puff for my liking, I really liked the power-suits and more understated dresses. (Images: WWD)
4. Jean Paul Gauliter - Never failing to inject a bit of fun and quirkiness into a collection perfectly curated for the feminine physique, the French designer produced a flurry of different outfits inspired by artwork, the 80s, and even traditional Spanish dress...hit up JPG if you have a couple of grand to spare...
