Catching up!

Posted on: 09 September 2010

It feels like ages since I've worn contrasting colours like this but I feel much more myself when I do! Finishing up the masters has made me lazy with outfits, but I'm definitely going to bring back the patterns and clashing colours some more and hopefully fewer blurry pics too!

So the past week has seen me catch up with friends. There has been plenty of fun party times...

Oh and yes that is a giant nipple near my head in case you were wondering. It's a giant poster covering the new Hollister store that is set to open in a few months time.

On a side note, Music and Burberry definitely go hand in hand these days and I had to post this video of George Craig even though I'm not the hugest fan of his band, One Night Only. I can't help but watch the video for that amazing shearling jacket and actually, it's not a bad song either! I've clicked play quite a few times now...

We all know that Burberry is quite hot on technology these days and they've just launched the Burberry Retail Theatre across 25 stores worldwide, allowing online and in-store events during the live streaming of the womenswear show SS11 which is kind of cool. I just love the technology savvy direction of Burberry. As if LFW is just around the corner!
