Trend: Lace

Looking through the Spring Summer 14 shows on style.com I found lace appearing in show after show. Big names like Burberry, Valentino, House of Holland, Celine and Roberto Cavalli all seem to have adopted this trend into their collections.

Typically a lightweight fabric, lace is sheer and can be made booth by hand or by machine and is known for its beautiful  delicate and intricate aesthetics. It's also seen a lot on formal and bridal wear which has celebrities dominating the fabric on every red carpet.

Outfit Post 4

Trodding around in Sarah’s shoes not only gave me a semi confidence boost (which didn’t help to sway the awkwardness behind the camera but was worth a shot) but it also gave me a boost in height, finally bringing me up to her level. Needless to say she didn’t like me being the same height as her as we’re all used to me being the short one.

Platform shoes are not only hard to walk in but when they are three sizes to big it does make the matter harder. Walking around in her shoes made me feel like a child again, walking around in mums big shoes pretending I was ‘all growned up’. Actually this whole outfit makes me feel like a child again, especially since I’m so used to parading around in all black.

Every time I wear these pants I get either a) compliments or b) weird looks. Either is fine with me and it’s kind of my happy go to outfit. It’s so hard to fit colour into every day outfits and though this may be going a tad overboard…well it’s fun. What can ya do?

So besides stacking it multiple times, we found some random white wall which didn’t make me look orange and got to shooting. Although looking like a kid wasn't exactly the look I was going for, most of the pictures turned out with me looking fairly childish. But, like I said, it’s fun. And technically, as an 18 year old, I am still a child.

Retail Therapy

Shopping for comfort, I can tell you, is a real thing. I tell you this from experience. I tell you this because I have a problem. That's right, I probably need some sort of AA for shoppers.

My name is Samira and I have a Shopping Problem. It all started when I lost my job about two months ago, I was never an avid shopper. Really only shopping when I needed it, and always with in a budget (see here), I have lost my way.

I claimed in the post above (link) that I rarely spend any more than $10 on anything, and although I have stuck within the limit for the most part (that is a lie) I seem to have overstepped my boundary in the past few weeks with all the money that I do not have.

Twice.
Two shopping trips was all it took, spending a mere $35 on multiple items of clothing in the first (it may not seem like a lot but when you are jobless it is everything) and a whopping $97 in the next. I bought three pairs of shoes in a day.
