Chanel Couture Spring Summer 2015

Chanel Couture's 15/16 show is like a fairy tale, set in a hothouse, set in the Grand Palais. I love the paper jungle installation, it looks like the centerfold of a children's pop up book. The show opened with a fairy tale bride hidden by tulle and followed by a procession of garden boys in straw hats, carrying green quilted watering cans. The collection takes a relaxed look on couture, featuring floral decorated beanie hats and elongated woolen skirts. The cropped suit jackets and low waisted skirts give a fresh take on the crop top. The netting attached to hats and wrapped around the eyes remind me of a bee-keepers mask. Each look is so rich in detail, tiny flowers are sewn onto the seams of jackets and tied to the ends of loose plaits, hats are feathered, sequined and beaded, sea shells and chiffon flowers are sewn into dresses and a honeycombed rim forms the end of a coat. Flowers are used as material forming floral hoods, shoulder pads and pockets. The traditional Chanel suit is frayed and adorned with accessories like long belts and the floral gloves. The black dresses, skin tight boots and tulle hats that partly conceal the face modernise the typical spring floral ensemble

I'm currently snowed in at home so I've been watching Twin Peaks and reading lots. I think I will always be obsessed with the Edie Sedgwick look, leopard print and black velvet forever <3
 I've been using temporary hair dye recently (L'Oreal Paris Casting Creme Gloss) but it has left a lot of copper tones in my hair. Does anyone know how to reduce the copper tones without dying it again? I would love to get back to my original colour

Cast Me Marc: Marc By Marc Jacobs S/S 15

Marc Jacobs Spring 2015 campaign features models cast from social media sites. After the success of the Autumn/Winter 14 campaign Marc by Marc Jacobs used the hastag #castmemarc to source models from social media sites like instagram and twitter. Similar to Meadham Kirchhoff's Spring/Summer 15 show designers are turning to social media to cast models

My attempts at posting my outfit (I'm in desperate need of a tripod). I love this plaid boyfriend coat so much, I never thought Id get tired of wearing parkas but I've lived in them for three years and I think its time to move on. I got the peach fur bag in River Island, its so cute, I'm in love. It's the last week before I have to go back to uni so I'm trying to cram as many books, movies and music into my free time as is possible, its exhausting, I think I'm relaxing wrong hehe
