Blair Switch Project?!

Has Blair gone all Little J on us?! According to this picture she has! Miss Waldorf wearing a Jack Vartanian bat necklace, short shorts, a cashmere wrap, and the coveted gladiator sandals from Chloe Sevigny for Opening Ceremony.

London hasn't got the new season on GG just as yet, all I know Miss Blair doesn't fit so well in NYU. Has Queen B's new country not quite feeling her?

I felt like Gossip Girl herself writing that. I can't decide, do I love the new Blair or the old Blair?!

In other news, I saw what Cassie wore to 'The September Issue' Premiere in New York a couple of days ago. I have to say unlike the majority of people I really like her cut, I think most people don't like it because they haven't got the balls to do a cut like that! Anyway her jumpsuit is from Zero which when you look on the site to be honest looks so bland, but on her it looks amazing with those Gucci shoes!

I finally made something outside of you that is worth wearing. Yesterday was my grandparents 50th Golden Anniversary, yes 50 years. That's right hollywood people can do more than 2 years. I didn't have a clue what to wear?! As I have insufficient funds the only thing I could do is to design and make something myself, on the day. I know talk about last minute, I just didn't have a clue what to make especially with the fabric I had since I only had one particular fabric which I could make something out of, all the rest were scraps.

I cut the pieces out the night before and in between cooking I started to make it! It was literally down to the last minute before leaving that I finished it, as well as altering my black dress, so here it is. Sorry about the blurry pictures, it was a long night.

I feel quite proud of myself! my room mate should be proud of me! I did it from scratch! I have to say it isn't perfect, but for doing in about two hours it isn't bad!

Undercover for a while.

Sorry for not updating a in a while. I have been in the best attire lately since I haven't been anywhere other than home and work. I didn't think my tank and shorts it's-hot-and-I'm-home uniform or my all black work uniform would excite you.

Saying that, I did go out to an exhibition with my fashionista bitch, Derya and her sister Merve ( I love you guys!) If you're in London, before September 27th, then go and see the 'Undercover' Exhibition at the Fashion & Textiles Museum. The exhibition presents a visual demonstration of how female underwear has evolved as a women's role in society changed and encompasses the changing trends from the 'flatten it' to the 'push it up' to the 'let it all hang out'?! It contains some of the most amazing pieces with a wide range of private and public collections from the who's who of underwear such as Marks & Spencers, Triumph, La Perla, Christian Dior, Wonderbra and Myla to name a few.

It goes from risque to the radical, pieces include an original Merry Widow corset inspired by Lana Turner in the film of the same name, renowned burlesque artiste Immodesty Blaize's corset and more.

Please, please go and see it! Let these photos tempt you!

I also finally got to see Coco avant Chanel with my girls and Genevieve (Genebebbe in french!) Amazing of course! Went to see the film in RichMix just at the end of Brick Lane. It's really a cool place to see a film. There is a little bar and cafe aswell with free wifi! Shame a didn't have my mac on me!

Sadly, I didn't take a picture of my outfit, but I will next time.

All my time at home makes me do one thing. Lists. I have a slight addiction to making lists, I know really weird! This is about the 100th time, okay 20th time I have made a list of items I have to buy before I go back to university. THIS IS MY FINAL LIST, I hope.

- silence+noise extended bra.
- knitwear; long cardigans; big knits; crop knit tops; KNITS KNITS KNITS!
- tshirt with shoulder pads (grey and white one).
- long vest and tanks (because I wore mine to death!).
- boots ;ankle and lace ups.

- two pairs of jeans.
- black skinny trousers.

- a big bag for university.

Oh, all I can do is write lists and wish.

Hair Muse.

Recently, I have been so bored with my hair! I actually can't do anything new with it! Dyeing it can not been done since my hair just falls out to this dye it still is! I tried to do cute curls to it, the fluff on my hair isn't long enough. Weave is not applicable in the summer months, I am sorry I don't know how these girls do a full head weave in the summer sun, it's like wearing a wooly hat 24/7! So there is only one other resort, some sort of hair cut with some extensions in!

I've been looking for a while! For some reason my boyfriend and friends seem to think I look like Rihanna, I know...where?! Anyways, at first Rhianna's cuts were practical then everyone started doing the same hair style! I'm sorry I am not a sheep and I don't want to look everyone with short hair!

For ages I have wanted a fringe or bang, whatever you want to call it, but the front of my hair is too short for the heavy bang that I wanted! I would have to get a piece put in the front for a fringe! DISASTER! Visions coming to my head of black girls with hair pieces all silky and beautiful and the the afroness waving out from the sides and the back, and tracks smiling at me right, left and center! I know I will have to pay big money to get none of the above! Now the hair cut! Gosh, the hair cut. 

Tao Okamoto, my hair muse. It's a rebellious, modern take on a sixties look. It can look edgy and angelic and I will be able to look after it! I love the fact it cover you eyebrows and is such a blunt cut, plus it means you don't have to do your eyebrows in the morning if you're rushing!

What you think? Shall I or not?
