Monday Blog

so this post is inspired by the lovely llymlrs. I love her blog and read it alot. Every Sunday she does a 'Sunday portrait' so I thought I'd do something similar every Monday I'll talk about my week ahead and the things I have planned and things that are on my wish list (clothes) so here I go!

so this photo is sort of an old photo, I think it was taken some time last year. it must of been cause my hair was long and so was my fringe which is no longer the case :( I cut my fringe into a straight cut and hated it so now it's quite short and growing out. anyway so it's bank holiday Monday today and the weathers quite nice but of course I've left all my work to last minute so I'm having to spend most of this week trying to finish..or even start my summer project for college. It's horrible and I hate it! but I need to finish it.
Urban outfitters £38
anyway this week is a boring week so there isn't much to say actually. hopefully my mum'll take me shopping this week because I get a present for doing well in my GCSE's I got : 1 B, 4 C's, 3 D's, and an E haha not  too great but good for me! I passed most of them and have enough to get to college so that's all that matters. and I'm so happy I got a B in textiles it's what I've been needing to lift my self esteem cause I always think I'm rubbish at things so this has proven me wrong. kind off. this weeks wishlist mostly includes things from H&M and that's an annoying thing because they don't have a website where I can show you pictures! but I'll try and explain them the best I can. firstly I've seen a shirt from H&M that I'm in love with, it has flowers on it and I've been wanting a floral shirt for ages. I was thinking off getting a more vintage one off ebay but I'm not sure if I can go through the hassle of Ebay at the moment. another thing I'm lusting over is a checked shirt/dress from H&M, it's green and black checked and i thought it would look great with either woolly tights and my lace up boots. or with a belt and no tights for when it's warmer! this morning I was looking on the Urban outfitters website. normally I think it's too expensive and I can never afford anything from there! apart from the AMAZING sale they have in January but obviously that's not till ages away but I saw these boots and loved them too much. i saw some in office last year and they looked sort of the same as this but they costed about £80! these only cost £38 so I'm hopefully going to order them soon. I've also been wanting some baggy t-shirts for college and i found the perfect ones in topshop! I love this grey t-shirt and I think it'll go with lots of things and it's something that's comfy but fashionable at the same time!
Topshop T-shirt £15

if you've read all of this then I love you! I have rambled on abit haven't I.

First outfit post

H&M tunic £10.99
Office shoes £55
So today in Brighton the weather was weird. one minute it's warm and one minute it's winter weather. days like this i find it hard to know what to wear. so this is my outfit for today, sorry about the horrible quality I haven't actually got a good quality camera yet. I'm hoping to get one soon! so here is what I wore today. quite boring but I thought the T-shirt stood out so i didn't want to over accessorize it. so i teamed it with just plain black leggings from topshop and a grey cardigan from H&M. the T-shirt was a bargain in my eyes only cost a tenner from H&M and it's something i could see myself wearing lots! as i could wear it tucked in or as a dress (might be a tad too short) but yeah i think it's something i could experiment with. I wore my gladiator sandals from office with it. I'm in love with these shoes they go with everything and i love the colour of them. it's a shame the weathers cold at the moment cause there more of a summer shoe

I also used my new bag today! I bought it for college because I needed a big bag for when I start so I can carry all my art supply's in it. I think it does the job and it only cost me £9 from primark bargain!
I'm also getting £50 this week for doing well in my GCSE's so hopefully I'll be buying some new clothes which i am in desperate need off! I'm thinking either some lace up boots. or i might spend my money wisely and buy some cheap stuff from primark and H&M. I've seen some nice stuff in there recently! so I'll keep you posted on how my shopping goes

I also want to apologise about my lack of blogging and that my blog has been pretty crap recently. I will try and make it more interesting now and post more often. if you have any suggestions on what i should post either email me at rosedl@hotmail.co.uk or you could follow me on twitter http://twitter.com/roseedl
Thank-you lovely people! xo

Topshop loving

topshop, topshop,topshop..who doesn't love it? well recently not me. I just haven't really been inspired by it and not really finding anything interesting. But I'm glad to say i think my phase of not liking topshop may have subsided. I was looking on the website today and I love some of the new things coming in. I even did a wish list and it included alot of things and a very high price tag which sadly i can't afford seeing as i don't have a job and I'm 16 living of my parents. but here are a few things that I'm loving for the autumn months 

first off all shoes..this autumn i think i will be living in brogues and boots these topshop brown brogues are amazing I love them and i love the colour of them. shame they cost £50 but i guess there worth it.
also this autumn knowing the English weathers it's going to be chilly so i will be buying some chunky knits and warm socks
i love this knitted cardigan in topshop. it looks so old and warm.  althought it is £48 I'm thinking maybe i'll just look round some charity shops and see if they have any..or even ask my grandad I'm sure he'll have some! but i love the trend of big knits so much and I'm loving autumn fashion.
sorry for not blogging everyday. I have been busy looking after my younger cousins this week. but hopefully i will do an outfit post this week! I really want to do one.
Tomorrow I'm picking up my GCSE results and I'm so scared. If i fail textiles then I'm screwed. but I'm sure I'll be fine. wish me luck!

Primark obsession

So I know alot of bloggers have shown the Primark A/W collection but i thought i would show some pieces i like. normally i don't like primark as some of the stuff seems cheap and not that appealing but lately my opinion has change. I'm loving the new stuff in there. recently i have bought a lace dress (£3) which i love. a playsuit (£13) which i also love shame the weathers not been nice but i guess i could wear it with some tights. and here are some other things i am also investing in.
1. these nude brogues, I love them and i also love how they have a small heel. I was shopping in Primark a couple of days ago and saw some brown ones and almost bought them but decided against it. and of course now I regret it! so as soon as i get some money I'm off to buy them they are only £12 so i thought why the hell not. and also when these come in to my local Primark i think i might have to buy them aswell. I'm loving the nude colour at the moment.
2. I also love this jumpsuit. I have never bought a jumpsuit before and keep meaning too but I'm always afraid that i would look short in it. but because this is a primark one and probably going to be reasonable cheap i thought i would. as soon as it comes in to my local Primark I'm going to buy it. i thought i could wear it with a denim jacket for when it's a bit chilly.

I'm really looking forward to autumn season now. i love the whole look such as chunky knits and boots. I am going to be investing in a pair of good boots this autumn i think. i have some black lace up boots  from topshop but i feel like i wear black too much so i think i might get  a pair of tan or brown coloured boots.
I think my next post will be on autumn fashion and boots so please follow!

This is the first post of Hedley-rose, I should probably start of by telling you about myself

Who? Rose Davidson-leech I'm 16 almost 17 which is VERY scary, from Brighton, my real name is Hedley but I don't like it so please call me Rose! which is what my whole family and friends call me, I'm a triplet with 2 brothers (yes it is dreadful) and I have just finished school and will be going on to do an Art course.

What? this blog is new and I'm not even sure how to work it, but i will give it my best try to make it exciting, I will use it to post my interests and things I like, so it will probably mostly contain Fashion and textiles, as I am trying to pursue that as a career!

When? Now i guess? I have a tumblr blog which I started just over a week ago, but that's not a very good start, so here it is my first ever blog and I hope I get some followers!

Where? I live in the amazing town of Brighton in East Sussex, I love it and couldn't think of a better place to live, it's fun exciting and has great opportunity, I love the fashion and art around Brighton, the vintage shops and everything, it's so inspiring, I am hoping to move to London when I am older though as I believe that's the best place to start a career

Why? Well really just to show you my interests and my Fashion, because it's a passion of mine..not sure how this blog will turn out maybe it wil turn out to be an Art blog! seeing as I am doing an Art course at college, who knows, but I hope people enjoy it!
