Fur-escent


Coat- I made
Trousers- Vintage
Tops- Primark/Topshop
Shoes- ASOS

This is potentially the brightest coat I've ever seen...I feel like a stylish traffic warden. It's so soft and comfy though, and I made it myself!! Another Elizabeth-made design on the blog teehee. Summer may me dawning but it's still not warm enough the leave the house without a jacket and bare legs (unfortunately). I'm really not a monochrome person, but somehow I decided I liked the layering look here, especially in contrast with the orange coat! 

So I'm back in London now, and have spend the day walking all over it being a tourist. It's suddenly hit me that I only have 2 weeks left, and then my London adventure is over! How quick has that gone?! I mean, I'm so glad its over, like SOOO happy to get home. It feels like a lifetime I've been here but that the same time it feels like only a few weeks ago I was saying "Oh 5 months, how am I going to survive that long?!" and i HAVE. So go me for putting up with shit.

Suede Me


Suede Skirt- Vintage
Crochet top- I made (!)
Shoes- Asos
Sunglasses- Monki

This outfit is what my dreams are made of....*heart eyes emoji*. My new fave skirt which i found in Beyond Retro (i go there way too much) and this rainbow crochet jumper which I MADE MYSELF. Yes, I am v v proud!! I love crochet and its the first thing I've ever knitted/crocheted properly so I think i did quite well. Not gonna lie it took hella long to make, I started knitting the flowers individually when I came home from placement in an evening to wind down a bit, and after about 3 months I finally finished it. 

These photos seemed to be impossible to get as the sun was dipping in and out, so yeah the lighting is a bit weird. Plus it makes me realise how deathly pale I am, deffo need to get a tan ASAP...and maybe a holiday too, any one want to whisk me away to a magical island in the sunshine?? No? Okay. And oh yes, my hair. It was a big decision, but i'm so happy I did it! i had about 8inches cut off, so my dip-dye ends are all gone and its all natural colour now. It doesn't even feel weird having it short, it just feels like me.

I head back to London on Monday (meh) for my last 3 weeks of placement, and then I'm all finished!!! I can't wait, then I have the summer to try and find a part time job/go the the gym/do my mountain of uni assignments. No social life for me!

Ring Master


Jacket- vintage via Beyond Retro
Polo neck- T.K.Maxx
Jeans- Topshop
Shoes- ASOS

I have strong feelings for this jacket. Its so wonderfully tacky, it had to be mine. Its covered in rosette ribbon prints with little horses on, and of course is full of colour. I feel like its an upgrade from the "vintage printed silk shirt" haha. I've had it a while but its never managed to appear on the blog yet, mostly because I've not being posting much..whoops. But I'm home for a week as I get 5 days holiday to take on placement, so I'm having some R&R back at the burrows of home. Also, how incred are these shoes? I got them in the sale for £15 reduced from £55, bargain! They super comfy too, although yes another pair of black chunky boots isn't exactly being adventurous with my style...but oh well. 

In other news, I got my hair cut today!!! v v short, can't wait to show you! follow me on instagram for more life updates! @elizabethbryony

11th April Rainbow Pleats


Skort *cringes at the word*- Vintage via Beyond Retro
Boots- ASOS
Turtle Neck- T.K.Maxx (some random brand idk)
Hat- River Island 

I'm slowly trying to get back in to blogging since I've been absent for a while. Okay, since January. I still don't know if I'm gonna continue with it, especially as half the time posting photos of myself just knocks my self esteem down a notch every time ha. Wow I sound super bitter today, sorry in advance- its been a tough week. However today I went and did some retail therapy and scored some awesome goodies in the Monki sale, and walked miles down Oxford Street- who ever says shopping isn't exercise is totally wrong. Anyway, my point is sometimes you need to spend time by yourself and clear your head and think things through. Its easy to behave irrationally when you're emotional and upset, so its important to work through it and try and gain perspective. It's hard, but its possible. Right well enough of my spiritual life story, I shall leave it there.

Dressing Gown-Cape




Dress- American Apparel 
Boots- ASOS

Firstly, I have no idea why every time i put photos on blogger, they come out pixelated and blurry? it's really annoying since they look so much better on every other format but as soon as they get on blogger? Nahhh. If anyone knows how to fix this or can give me tips, would be much appreciated since I am a techno-NOT. 

Anyway, on to the outfit; is it a shirt? A dressing gown? A dress? Who knows, the point is I can wear it however I want, and i love it. I found it on a sale rail in Beyond Retro for about a tenner, totally worth it! I can't wait for summer so i can throw it on as a jacket and look like I've just walked out of woodstock in the 70's. My wardrobe is pretty much like 80% vintage now, since i now live 15 mins away from Bricklane...whoops. 

It feels like so long since I've actually written a proper blog post, since I've come home from London for a long Easter weekend I decided I'd try and get back in to it! I have 2 months left on placement and then i get to come home for the summer yaaay!! May cannot come quick enough.

My LFW backstage experience

Hey,
Soo yeah a little different from my usual blogging, but if you've followed me for a while now you may have learned i've been in London interning as part of my uni course since January. Which meant I got to jump in at the start of a fashion cycle and make it all the way to London fashion week! (!!!!x100). The hard work and late nights (3am guys, 3.a.m.) were pretty much worth it to get to go see the show and everything we'd worked to hard to create... 

The show held in the Tate Museum, pre- catwalk of course. Once is started it was full of people, i even spotted Susie Bubble sat somewhere on the Frow!! (and what I thought was Pharell but just turned out to be a man in a hat...was very disappointed)
Backstage in the dressing rooms where the models get dressed in their looks. There was an emergency which resulted in me being a dresser for the show (safe to say I was NOT excited but thinking "wtf help i have no idea what I'm doing and the model will probably walk on to the runway with a thong around her ankle or something")
The two models i dressed for the show (in the dresses I actually cut out a few weeks before, kind of crazy!)
And the insane Louboutins for the show which we had to lace up in record timing- a lot of pressure but they looked amazing. Although the model complained about how painful they were to wear...either way I'm gasping for a pair of thigh-highs now!!

So that was all kind of crazy! But totally worth it to get to see the show. I met some amazing people on my placement (and some...not amazing haha) that quickly became my close friends, and its sad to leave them behind but it was time to start my second placement! (*cough cough* and its at ERDEM how i've got that I'll never know haha!!) Hope you've enjoyed my LFW tales! Did any of you guys go? :)

25th Feb; All the Colours


Shirt and trousers- vintage from Beyond Retro
Shoes- ASOS
Bag- River Island

So its official; i survived fashion week!! The 3am finishes and 16 hour days were worth it to get to see the show in all its glory! if you follow me on instagram you probs know all the deets haha! It was a whirlwind day but i took lots of photos so plan to make a blog post if you guys wanna see? But on to the outfit, I got these dreamy vintage pieces in the Beyond Retro sale a couple of weeks back, and decided to go all out with a crazy bag and patterned shoes- go hard or go home i guess. These trousers make me look HUGEEE (as they always do) but they're wool and comfy, plus a dreamy teal colour too. And only £9 so quite the bargain.

I finally have a smidge of time to post again because work is no longer insane and working all hours of the night, plus this is my last week in my current placement! I start somewhere else next monday so i don't get a break really, but hey ho. 

Any of you guys make it to LFW?
