Sporty Spice

Recently I have decided to get back into running.  I live on a lovely road passing fields (tranquil, no one's majorly bright headlights shining in my face blinding me).  So this has inspired a Sports Luxe  post.  This look is very in right now and I'm going to be honest, I didn't like begin with!  However it has grown on me particularly (and very strangely) the mix of metallics. So I've done some research and found some key designer pieces sporting the trend. You might see me out running in one of these sports luxe dresses the summer obviously.
Anyone who know's Alexander Wang knows that as much as this is predictable of him it is also VERY great.  I love his oversized quirky and shapless pieces and this tee looks great with the brogues and jeans.  Love it. I found this image on Elle and felt the look was comfy and stylish at the same time.

But we all know that Karl took out his own range on Net-a-porter which is just luscious.  I want every single thing.  His range definitely meets the sports luxe, here is some of his key pieces, things that are sporty and what I generally want anyway:

We also have dresses following the Sports Luxe trend; yellow being Michael Kors; coral being Alexander Wang :

One to watch

I know I know, 2 blogs in one day...aren't you all lucky. I really couldn't wait to share this though.  So tonight I watched the London College of Fashion's MA Fashion Design final graduates catwalk show which streamed live from 8pm.

At the end was Hana Cha and I actually started smiling because I was so blown away by her collection, it was fabulous. One to watch.

Here is a link including background into her latest work: 

this is her collection, the winning womenswear collection:

So if you missed the show, then here is a link to view galleries of the students work. If you scroll down, you will see the list in order of showcase on the left of the screen.

February is here...

So, I should apologise sincerely for my complete lack of anything blog-worthy over the LONG month of January. Through coursework and exams to then working the rest of my time off before uni I didn't have anything exciting inspire me over the weeks. 

It's a new year, which can mean a fresh start.  Usually I don't believe in all that nonsense of changing yourself just because it's a new year.  If you want a fresh start, you can have it any time - life's too short.  However, I might be more into the concept than I let on.  I recently decided to have, quite a change, of hairstyle.  Given, I have been wanting this hairstyle for quite some time.  I just plucked up enough courage to do it last Friday.  I have indeed been very inspired by Freja Beha Erichsen, which from the photo you can hopefully pick up.  Obviously I'm no where near as beautiful, stunning or original as this talented lady mind you.  But since she is a fashion model/icon I thought this worthy of a blog post.
