Things need to change drastically in this country for the good of its people.It is simply not a case of 'Old Colonial' putting their nose in to other peoples business.Its the case of getting rid of a bloody tryant who starves his people and threatens them with violence. The governement needs to be taken away right away with military action if need be.I would support this.The government should also be circumspect to a sort of Nuremburg trial for their disuse of Human Rights. I recognise that this is a fashion blog, not a political one, but I feel very strongly on this issue and wish to address it to other people.

One thing that comes to mind is wearing it with full dresses and skirts, bows, skulls and studs. I do have a penchant for skulls, studs and gothic type things as I LOVE heavy metal and have a lot of goth clothes from when I was younger. And as my mother does say I do sometimes up looking like a dead Victorian goth becuase I am so pale and dress in a Victorian manner! I also promise some more outfit photos from the past week. My outfits have been uninspiring and only one outfit is really post worthy!
All photos are from this post by Susie Bubble.

pictures from my vast collection of vintage images.
All items Vintage bar the shoes which are from http://www.shopplasticland.com/ . I have cats eye sunglasses like these but only around the lenses is a leopard print design!
I love love love this dress with a passion that knows no bounds! Unfortunately it is vintage and probably quite expensive! The coat is also fabulous and from the 1940s. You could probably find something like this from e-Bay or in stores this summer as this style of coat, I think is timeless. The hat is probably not everyones taste or style It may be hard to wear if you have long hair but if you pin you're hair up into a chignon or some similar style you could probably get away with this hat.
The suitcase is something else!Id kill for a vintage suitcase like this but theyre not very practical if you have to walk long distances in airports!

Right first of all.....Hand Luggage. I think within the UK, Ireland and the European Union the limit is 10kg. This is fairly workable and if you are only going for a few days you could bring your suitcase on as hand luggage and save on the baggage prices. If you are going to do this you need to have ALL LIQUIDS in a CLEAR PLASTIC BAG. A bit like this:
I personally use sandwich or freezer bags that are available in most supermarkets.This means all liquid make up products and bath products like this:
You MUST have these at the top of the case. A good idea would be to pack all your clothes and then have your towels on top of the clothes followed by the clear plastic bags. You do not need to have lipstick, eye shadow or powders in the clear plastic bags. I have came across this mistake before and ended up with too many things in my hand luggage and the security officer was not happy!
And now to the luggage you are going to put onto the plane. Again I think that the maximum weight is 20kg for the UK, Ireland and Europe. There is a place within most airports that you can weigh you're suitcase before you check it in. IF it is over weight you have to pay a £6.00 fine per kilogram. The airline you are travelling with should outline these prices on their website.
Now to the packing! Are you the kind of person who heaves everything in and then sits on top of your suitcase?Or does it last minute and forgets everything essential? I have done this to and I am no perfect packer! Though I have found that being prepared is key. I always make a list of what I have to get and check it off as I buy it. I also do this when packing.
I normally pack the heavier,bulkier things first. Such as jeans, dresses,jackets etc. I then put in my shoes and some t-shirts, skirts and shorts. I do this as I find it is easier to layer my shoes in between two layers of clothing. This is incase the shoes are sticking out at the top and I cannot get the case closed. For socks and underwear I normally either roll them and slide them into the sides of the suitace or I put them in the pocket that is on the other side of the suitcase. I also use this pocket for important documents and information on were I am staying.
Also to note if you are bringing a hair dryer or hair tongs or hair straighteners it is wise to put them in the layer were the shoes are.I hope this has been somewhat useful and you can use this information if you are lucky enough to be going on holidays this summer!

P.S.-The posts are somewhat in disarray. You should view the pictures of me in the same dress AFTER you look at this post. Its just below the video post. Technically the other picture post should be before this one....but it did not work out quite like that!

I love this video ever since I came across it on the 'Cherry Blossom Girl' blog! I love the Alice in Wonderland-esque feel to the whole video piece. I also especially love Zooey Deschanel's outfit in this video piece! Very last century but somehow modern.Hmm I need a large bow in my hair now....

This is so yummy! I wish I could eat this on a daily basis but I think my blood sugar would be through the roof. What it is is Tesco Finest* Raspberry yoghurt icecream, Raspberries and dark chocolate! Yum yum yum!
This is my faithful Vintage brown leather satchel. I bought it for £3.99 in the Oxfam in Belfast. I adore this bag and has been everywhere with me! From nightclubs, to fields to airports and back! It holds a lot and is not to big to be used as a going out clubbing bag. It does need a good clean inside but I do love it so. The best thing is that it goes with every outfit!
These are the Wingtip Oxford Brogues from New Look. I bought them for £5.00 of e-Bay and they arrived the other day. I must say I adore these shoes and they are somewhat comfortable to walk in-though I think I shall have to buy some party feet sole cushions for these shoes!I love them becuase they remind me of shoes from the 1930s and 1940s and I have a penchant for anything from these particular decades!
Yes I do admit to owning one of these bags from Marks N Spencers. But so what!? Theyre cool and stylish (I think) and I can lug my books and art materials around in it for next term. At least it looks better than a Tesco Bag For Life! Although on that note I do have the hessian material Ladybird bag for life that was out over a year and a half ago. The nice little one that was made BEFORE they stuck , 'TESCO BAG FOR LIFE,' on it!
Anyway there is the information for the purchases as follows:
Mock Croc Bag: £6.00 Primark
High Heel Oxford Brogues: £22.00 TKMaxx
Red Patent Bag: £3.99, Vintage, Oxfam.
White Over the Knee Socks, Black Alice Band and Corsage: £5.99, £2.99 and £5.99 respectively. All River Island. I normally do not shop here as I find some of their clothes to be somewhat Chavvy but I had a voucher from Christmas that needed using up so I decided to buy these lovely items.
Gold Chain: £3.99 H&M Kids Range-with a picture of Maria in it!
I also bought two coats-one nautical themed and one a woollen swing coat. Both from Primark, but I need to take better pictures of them. I also managed to buy that tutu skirt that has become popular amongst fellow fashion bloggers. It is the one from the H&M kids range and I also bought a Primark boob tube to use as a Body-Con skirt (not an original idea of mine though!).
However, I turned the skirt and boob tube into a dress of sorts. I did this by attaching ribbons as straps to the boob tube and again the attached it to the skirt. Though I think I shall just tuck the boob tube into the skirt as it is only pinned to the dress. More Pictures to follow tomorrow!
I was going for a somewhat girly 1950s-esque look with this outfit. I had it planned out the night before which is something that I have been doing quite often this past while as Im not in a rush to get up for University or anything!
Brogues: From New Look but I bought them for £5.00 via e-Bay.
Top (actually a dress): Primark
Skirt: H&M Divided from about a year ago.
Necklace: Marks & Spencers.
Studded Bracelet: e-Bay from about 3 years ago.

One of my favourite artists from my University's, 'End of Year Show,' for the graduating third years. I will post the information on this artist once I sift thought the various leaflets and flyer's that were on hand to tell me about the artists!SEE ABOVE I do love her work though- it is old fashioned, vintage yet modern as in it is her own concept of the past! I have included these pictures of art on here as this is just not a fashion blog.
Well I try very hard for it not just to be a fashion blog! I am an art student and therefore naturally I am interested in art and artists themselves. Therefore expect more artistic posts in the future.
