Photography/ Faded

I really am into this far away feeling that is featuring in many photographs these days. That faded distance that gives the viewer the feeling of intimacy between them and the picture, as if your seeing into every inch of the subjects mind and life. Its great to be able to get your viewers to relate to your image in such a way.

Here are some breathtaking examples I just love!



I'm bit of an anti-Beiber, but this is just
plain straight adorable!

Product Spotlight/ Your Eyes Lie


Home of indie-ish clothing and cult brands, Your Eyes Lies is the place for aesthetics you wont find anywhere else. Think tie-dyed Levis, studs galore and of course your eccentric animal jewellery.

One of the things I love them most for is their digital print products, especially this beauty...



The Galaxy print vest is something you cant find anywhere else, believe me, I've tried. I love the colour and cut of the vest, not forgetting that bleached quality. Its something that could be easily integrated into anyone's  wardrobe.

If I was lucky enough to own that lovely vest I'd pair it with...




Love those quirky rings and the studded, acid washed shorts!


Love,
Rachel

Collection/ 55DSL: Kids in Italia Part 1


Fashion is not just clothes, bags, make-up and the rest of it. Its a statement and a lifestyle. 55DSL, the Italian offshoot of the Diesel we all know and love, understands this. Their amazing F/W Collection just breathes comfort and functionality, you cant really wear a meat dress for day to day life. Fashion isn't just for the famous.

To illustrate how wearable the collection is, Vice teamed up with 55DSL to make a series of videos with a few of Italy's young creatives' who wore pieces from the F/W collection each day. They trailed around after the artists to get an insight of what the urban scene is like in modern Italy.



The first of the two films followed photographer Lele Saveri returning to his home town and a Sicilian village to collect images for his upcoming book.





You get the rare opportunity from this series to see into a small town Sicilian tradition, learn about the Italian culture and new music obsessions. Here's the first video!




In the next part of this post I will introduce you to the two 55DSL girls, Giulia From Above and Elisa Bee,  both DJ's on the Italian club scene. Stay tuned!


Love,
Rachel

Product Spotlight/ Urban Outfitters


Another hige trend for Autumn/Winter this year is Chelsea boots, of all colours, shapes and heights. For all horse riders this is one less thing to cross of your shopping list! The ones I'm sharing today are partly made of the material for A/W...velvet!



These platform Chelsea boots are just to die for. The colour the shape, the on-trend toe cap...daymn. Deena & Ozzy know how to make a boot! 

Pair with something geometric like these monochrome leggings and a simple tee.

Product Spotlight/ Topshop


I'm going to start featuring one of my favourite pieces to hit the shops each Thursday, today is from my favourite stores ever! Topshop!

What goes around comes back around said many a man, including Justin Timberlake. This definitely relates to fashion as well, with the Mod trend that I love so much being a huge success.

Topshop rock the Mod scene as I've said before, this new piece is scoring high in my books for sure!



The contrasting black and grey has a great geometric effect if you look at the jumper from different angles, I saw this in the store and fell in love!

Pair it with these glamorous yet indie velvet shorts and some radical circular sunnies and your in business!






Love.

Inspiration/ Autumn

Busy, busy autumn months. Exams so soon, tired and achy. Music is the only thing keeping my head above water...and the prospect of going to the Clothes Show Live as a school trip! 

I think everyone is feeling kind of downtrodden with work and school at this part of the season, so to cheer us up I have some music, videos and as usual, amazing photos to help us see the positive side of autumn, or completely ignore  it and reminisce of summer.

Really...it's not all that bad! Think of the huge chunky knits you can wear...
