Throw back Thursdays – Street Style Snaps from London

A few of my snaps of the Street Style that London had to offer last year :D.  **All my own photography**

IMG_0643-2Spotted outside the Topshop show space at London Fashion Week in September.  Those trousers are SO good.  I wonder if I could do that myself? Attack a pair of jeans with a stanley knife..? Paired with a casual, loose fitting black polo neck and a pair of  white Nike blazers this look is a perfect example of sport luxe styling.

 

SAM_0937 SAM_0941 SAM_0942SAM_0945 I loveee Sinead’s bright blue roots – created using Kiko Hair Shadow, great for a temporary change – and hides root growth at the same time, win.  This would look great paired with some gel and glitter, as seen in my Glitter Hair Inspiration post.

Ibiza: Moments in Love

Ibiza: Moments in love

Looking at photos of people partying gives me the same tingly happy feeling you get when you hear -that-song-you-heard-the-other-night-when-everyone-was-going-mental.  Good party photography will capture a moment of pure freedom from the daily grind; the let-your-hair-down joy that comes with clubbing.  No worries; just music, and smiles, and dancing, and sitting at the back having  heart felt conversations with someone you’ve only just met -what’s your name again?-

The Ibiza: Moments in Love exhibition at the Institute of Contemporary Arts is a time portal into the island Ibiza once was:

SAM_0876 SAM_0878 SAM_0875The first thing that really strikes me about these photographs is the people’s style; care free and costume-like.  I would love to rock up to a club with my tatas out and a bit of silver paint on the nips.  And why shouldn’t I.  (Pass the silver paint)

As well as these photographs the exhibition contains past artefacts; magazines, posters, signed tickets, mix tapes etc.  I’m glad to say that I have a shoe box in my room that is absolutely full to the brim with my own collection of similar items.  I keep everything.  I’m going to have to get a bigger box soon.

All photos above were taken by me at the Ibiza: Moments in Love Exhibition.  It’s on until the 2nd of Feb so if you’re in London go down and check it out http://www.ica.org.uk/whats-on/ibiza-moments-love.  The photographs featured are a set of previously unpublished pictures by the British photographer Derek Ridgers taken at Ku in 1984.

Primark SS14

Primark have released their Spring/Summer 2014 collection- and it looks sweeeet well done lads.  Up the cheap and cheerful.

Primark ss14 1

Love the styling here as well – corn rows/braids are set to be a big hair trend this summer.  Primark has undergone a complete image overhaul and I applaud them for it;  they have continued to grow through the gloomy recession and altering their target market towards youth fashion will see them grow even more.Primark ss14 2

Printed matching sets – yes!!Top-8-10-Jan-skirt-12-

I would happily wear every one of the looks in the images above; which is a big step considering when I was younger I would’ve been embarrassed to be seen in Primark (and I wasn’t alone in that feeling).  I’ll be popping in store this week to check out the goodies.
