This time next week I'll be at the airport en route to Italy for the summer. I'm very excited - and very nervous - about it but ultimately I'm looking forward to the adventure! I'm going to be working a lot (at least I'm planning on working a lot - let's hope that pans out) however I will have a couple weeks of time off when I'll get to do some TRAVELLING!!!

I'm excited to see my bestie's house in Brighton, and maybe, maybe we're going to go to Paris, which I've never been to and am dying to see. I imagine dressing fabulously and eating baquette and exploring the city by foot or by bike and exuding elegance and awesomeness, like this lady.

Is it possible to get the dressing on the side?

This video is great because I have indeed experienced every single one of these 'ordering types' both as a server and as a customer. (...and okay fine, maybe I'm guilty of pulling a couple of these ordering faux-pas')

Soo Anna dello Russo is designing an Accessories Collection for H&M. Lots of gold and sparkly and robin's egg blue and over the top. I have to say, I always thought that Anna della Russo was all quirk, and while this video supports this theory to an extent, it also points out that she is also pretty darn cute and hella organized. Seriously, I have ne'er seen such a well organized closet in. my. life.

Super Cool Photos!

I heart photography.

Photography as art is awesome.

These photographers are awesome and I heart their artwork.

Matt Wisniewski. What an original and effective idea! Your photo-collages are super cool.

Thanks to Miss Moss for turning me onto him! And thanks to Ciao Chessa for blogging about Cig Harvey.

Cig Harvey. Your photos are at once a snapshot of the everyday and a deeply personal story. 
Your use of colour is super cool.

So today I popped into one of Halifax's new(ish) stores and

               a) immediately wished I had more (any) money to spend
               b) fell madly in love with a new designer whose prints are AMAZING.

Behold Charlotte Taylor. Her website is rad, she's a Central Saint Martin's grad, and I want to wear her clothes and be quirky and cool yet fashionable and chic. Any of these ensembles will do:

Isn't she so great? These images are all from her website, the top 3 from her Spring/Summer Collection, 
and the bottom one from her Fall/Winter (as the dark and stormy background may suggest..)

Oh! If you're in Halifax for sure stop by Grimsmo.
