These images were shot in my beloved Ealing B by my office wife Tess. It was a super rainy day so I thought I would unleash some sunshine-esque brights onto the streets of EB. This blazer was a total barg at Zara; I nabbed it for £30 in the sale instead of £50 ish (I think!). I love how oversized and long it is -- I often have a problem finding blazers that fit how I want them to: too many on offer are very fitted and sit at the waist which I find super unflattering. I'm also wearing my Topshop sale shoes which make me feel like Carrie Bradshaw (an awesome or awful prospect I don't know...). They are completely ridiculous and I can't imagine where or when I will wear them. When taking these shots Tess asked me about the practicality of these shoes. It went something a little like this:
T: So, when will you actually wear these B?
B: Don't really know. Blog posts? Fancy dress? Days when it's not raining?
T: So why did you buy them?
B: THEY WERE IN THE SALE AND I HAD A VOUCHER OK.
I am currently planning my upcoming year (as much as you can "plan" for what life will bring in the next year) and am looking to go travelling over the new year (just for a short period) in Indonesia with my mate Michelle, and move to Putney in April time. If anyone knows of anyone looking for roommates or of any rooms available, do let me know! I also got a call from The Debrief last week too, offering me the short internship I applied for, which I will complete in March. I am SO excited as if you know me, you will know I am a crazy fan of the humorous-fashion-writing bracket, which The Debrief definitely can be filed under. I am also back at The Times next month, but the big news is that I have been kept on at the magazine (SHOP) I have been interning at since the beginning of Dec. I am still doing intern duties but have also been writing as a freelancer and am surrounded by the nicest people! So it looks like a move to Putney is on the horizon...London life is officially underway! (woop woop).
