It’s been a long time since I’ve got proper excited about a collaboration and even then, I think I’m like a month behind on this so soz this is old news. Tyler the Creator who I’m not really that bothered about has partnered up with Converse with a product range and oh my god Golf le Fleur is SWEEEEEET. Coming about a couple of years ago when he wanted a range of trainers to go with his golf brand, the original Converse One Star has just been taken up a notch with some new additions and tbh I want a pair so badly. It’s bold, bright but so bloody cool – the floral sole is another level. Hypebeast eat ya heart out gals.
It’s obvs completely sold out completely after initially launching just in Korea and I’ve been refreshing the website ever since… I absolutely LOVE everything Converse is doing right now, from those Millie Bobby Brown memes, Miley Cyrus hosting those episodes, I’m all in.
Lmao I’ve so lost the plot with blogging that I just added this as a page not as a post
Hope everyone’s had a really lovely Bank Holiday! Uni’s finished, everything’s finished and I feel so on top of the world and so happy and also feel like I have the headspace (and energy) to have a hobby again. Wot is a blog? Is blogging even still a thing? Will anyone read this? Hello? I also have the headspace to have friends, cook meals, wash my hair and generally be a normal person again. The past couple of months have been hard and I’ve had to take everything down to the minimum in terms of life; basically all I’ve done since October is sit in the library, go to work and eat, sleep uni work. By sleep I mean you should hear some of the conversations I’ve been having with myself these past couple of months (actually, don’t).
But, I’m the happiest and proudest I’ve been with any work ever and for the sake of 9 months, it’s been really worth it. Here’s some updates, some things I’ve liked etc over the past couple of months in note form:
First of all if perhaps you’re looking for an assistant in communications, events or anything creative, hello! Pick me! My website, portfolio and LinkedIn
Like everything, I’m probably a million days late with this but deep into my denim FMP realisation at uni and I stumble across Itchy Scratchy Patchy (totally the coolest brand name in da world). Set up by model, Edie Campbell (also she’s just amazing), the brand create insane iron-on patches to jazz up your denim and anything else that has a clear space to patch. Their first collection was titled ‘Best of British’, celebrating typical British characters (erm a feminist, pole dancer, a philosopher) and tabloid culture, followed by patches of sumo’s, mushrooms and nettles. Oh so very cool. To go alongside and if you’re after pre-patched things, there’s everything from customised CDG shirts, jeans, sweatshirts and tres Francais beret’s, hey now get in my wardrobe. Selling at Dover Street Market, I wanna go and see the display but in the meantime their website is very cool.
Hi and welcome to Ellie’s Favourite Things otherwise known as the Miu Miu Appreciation Blog. Half joking, half not. But I’ve gotta show some love for Miu Miu’s beachside SS17 campaign that’s got me California dreamin’. Retro high-cut two-pieces, classic swim hats and pretty postcard prints, it’s love and just what I needed in grey February. Shot by Fashion Photographer Alasdair McLellan and styled by fashion hero/God Katie Grand featuring Elle Fanning, Lara Stone and a couple of new faces, it’s a narrative I would happily join in with and I’m yearning for sand and sunshine. Deckchairs, parasols and the funkiest sandals I’ve ever seen, is it too early to start buying summer clothes for a holiday that isn’t even booked?!
So a couple of months ago I probs made the most outrageous fashion decision a jeans-and-striped-tee-girl could make. Yes amigos, I bought some silver boots. True to say, I have evolved into a magpie in recent years and anything that reflects light I feel should be in my possession. I need it. Now. Take my money. Alas, I am now the proud owner of silver boots and they’ve been sat awkwardly like an ornament on top of their box ever since. I feel so beyond out of my comfort zone that I secretly enjoy it and when I wear them, I am proud to say that for 10 minutes(until I scuffed the toes) I was probably the most sophisticated person in Stratford, East London (note: that probably isn’t hard to achieve).
Thanks to my saviour Pinterest, this is the inspo that’s got my through. Since, I now own some raw hem jeans and according to my hero’s Leandra Medine and Chung, long coats rule and the biggest lesson is that actually anything goes and you can wear whatever the hell you want! Like anything! Yolo my friends yolo and yes I shall wear my starry blouse with my silver boots because I am inspired by the galaxy.
Blog I miss you and I want more time to ramble my life away on here *dramatically drowns in uni briefs* cya
I admire luxury designer houses secretly from afar. Obviously with clothes oh so completely out of my price range/life; their imagery, campaigns and art is something I find more accessible and more enjoyable. This Gucci SS17 campaign sums up everything for me. It’s excessive, over the top and if anything quite hilarious. Shot by Glen Luchford and including top models, obvs, it also features a lion, leopard and a tiger. Insane. Shot in various locations in Rome (including the Trevi Fountain) it combines the every day (a fast food restaurant) with everything out of the ordinary. Incredibly retro, oh so tacky and those bling bling bling sunglasses are giving me life, my favourite campaign that I’ve seen for a while for sure!
now playing: defo I Have a Dream Westlife/2 Become 1 Spice Girls/Feliz Navidad some random spanish Christmas song that reminds me of putting bath bombs through a till, ah sweet memories/Step into Christmas Elton John (personally my favourite Christmas song)/Mistletoe Justin Bieber (another favourite)
