Coral hearts and Trompe L'oeil

24 January 2010

While I might not be able to afford the real deal in the form of a Burberry trench SS10 or the Trompe L'oeil seen at Commes des Garçons AW09....
I can pretend and wear this fun Tromple L'oeil trench dress for Oasis by LCF undergrad, Rosalind Keep instead. Seeing as I work at the store part time, I couldn't say no to this when it came to choosing my 'work uniform', how could I resist? Susie has also been spotted wearing this dress and of course, wears it in a way that only Susie knows how. I decided to pair it with my new coral cardigan and the little hearts really worked with the fun element!

So, I started a week of my new lectures, one of which was a class on E-marketing. It couldn't have been any more perfect. The lecture was on ASOS, Twitter and Facebook and the lecturer did a quick google search and we had The Sartorialist on the lecture screen! It was so interesting to be learning about something that we're already part of and to see the outsiders viewpoint. As bloggers, we've had to teach ourselves so much and it's very much still a learning curve. It's such an interesting time to be a blogger seeing as there are more and more opportunities becoming avaliable, with some bloggers reaching incredible new highs. I'm beginning to think that my dissertation should be on fashion and social media! Will be strange writing about something that is so relevant for once!

  6. Amazing dress! And so similar to the one in the fashion show.

    I find it incredible how quickly blogs and online media has become relevant. I'm sure I'm not the only one who's noticed that in probably the last year, the amount of press releases and interest in online presence has increased. I wanted to do a dissertation on fashion law for my GDL but sadly there wasn't quite enough to write about. One day...

  17. Amazing dress, and such a bargain if it was on uniform. Man I miss that perk... Also your lecture sounds so interesting, I might have to change my dissertation topic too (though it was previously about shopaholics, so not too far from the truth).

    As for e-marketing lectures, etc. I totally agree-- as bloggers we've learned so many things ourselves. I'd love to read your paper :)

  23. I so love the T-shirt dress. And cute cardi too..I heard on the news recently that many of the some fashion magazines are looking to "real" people to show off their photo-shoots in fashion. Perhaps bloggers have had a lot to do with that phase.
