My love for striped tops came from this film, and when I put on my crisp stripe top, I always like to think that I look at elegant and doll like as Winona Ryder does, but the truth is I'm far from it.

Girl Interrupted, is by far one of my favourite films. It is Based on the book (of the same name), of author Susanna Kaysen's 18-month stay at a mental hospital in the 1960s. She enter's the hospital because of her depression and an attempted suicide which she denies doing. The film continues from here, and introducing other amazing characters. Georgina is a pathological liar. Polly has been badly scarred by fire. Daisy (Brittany Murphy) won't eat in the presence of other people. Lisa (Angelina Jolie) is a sociopath, and the biggest influence on the other girls in the hospita, and has a history of escapes. It's my favourite role of Angelina Jolie ever. 

The styling however, is not typically 1960's, there is no mini skirts and beehives, Winona's character is the modern Audery Hepburn, Breton tops, men's shirts, tailored trousers and comfy loafers, her hair is also so elegant too, when ever I am dressing for work, I always like to try and capture this look, to me it's the ultimate feminine look.

But what do you think?

Remember this scene from Edward Scisscorhands? Peg visiting Edward's castle in the hills dropping off her latest Avon Catalogue, though its no longer pastel colours and wool co-ords, the principle (earning a little extra cash) is still there, which is why I have recently become an Avon representative! Woohoo!!

Living for the now

So I took a lil break from blogging - work (not my life but work!) was getting in the way a bit. But in a perfectly busy way, I was doing long hours, weeks and travel but all it was all amazing!  In the last 5 weeks I have been to London, Paris, Portugal, been on 2 photoshoots, designing AW14, sending clothing to celebs and writing articles for magazines. However, things are slowing down to sort of normality now which excites me because I can get back blogging!! Yay!
