One for the weekend: my new favourite photography site TurnedOut by Maya, a collection of beautifully shot images from personal to fashion week to portraits, alongside collages made up of photos and magazines.
A magazine I discovered a couple weeks ago: Garage.
From emails to and from Derek Blasberg and new artistic projects to pages of wallpaper patterns (second from last photo) and squid-headed models.
I really enjoy discovering new magazines, as it's intriguing for me to flick through new layouts and new ideas and getting inspired; I would highly recommend.
Being in my early twenties I've pretty much always had the same hairstyle- long and wavy. I have a slight phobia of the hairdressers and have been cutting my hair for many years. I'm not really the kind of person who 'does' their hair, and I like it that way. That's why it normally ends up piled on top of my head, or caught up in my scarf. But of late I've realised that this is the time of life when you can perhaps get away with a more daring hairstyle. It's not to say I'm going to shave my head/ bleach my hair, but sometimes I do wonder what lies out there...
Recently I've been loving all the pink hair, but I'm afraid that much like dip dyeing or ombre hair, it'll lose it's novelty very quickly. I also accidentally had green hair for two years when I was younger. (One word: henna.) Due to this I'm a bit cautious of doing a spur of the moment chop and colour that I will regret.
I went to see the Yayoi Kusama at Tate Modern this week (I also went to see the Hirst, but that's another discussion). The main conclusions from my experience of the exhibition were 1) I have a total girl crush on her 2) I could spend forever in her Infinity Mirrored room (very upset we couldn't take photos) and 3) I want to paint myself in polka dots and sing.

Sometimes, I'm a real blast and I hide behind flowers.

I came across this beautiful creature the other day. Alice Goddard is her name, and her style- very androgynous and simple, but still sexy. I then realised that way back in September 2010 I took her photo at fashion week (below), what are the chances?
My new polo neck crop top. I had been mulling over one of these for a while, but it wasn't until last week that I decided to go ahead and get one, and I'm so glad that I did. Teamed with the high waisted skirt it becomes so 90s, so great.
A continuation of blues-in-my-wardrobe. These are two of my favourite vintage maxi dresses. What I love most about them is the patterns. The polka dots fulfil the role of going with pretty much anything I throw over them, and the not-yet-bloomed-floral-print of the other works with the bright blue of the whole dress. I got both of these at vintage kilo sales, which are heaven sent in my world, and which I would highly recommend you visit.
