Spring Summer 2013 Inspiration and Advertising video’s

A collection of video advertising campaigns for Spring/ Summer 2013, love the music and visual elements. Makes me excited for Spring and Summer clothing! Music to fashion, fashion to music I’m happy. The ASOS,  Missguided, Target and Topshop ad’s are my top ones out of the bunch, fun and fresh. And the Hermes advert is such a simple, yet classic idea! Reminds me of old children’s cartoon’s.

American Apparel, Jumper’s galore, Joseph Cashmere and Sale shopping

Some of fabulous finds for January and early February. I’ve gone jumper/ sweater crazy this winter.

I’ve really gotten into thrift stores recently and finding pieces which are comparable to things I would find on the high street or even luxury brands. Some of the sweaters I got are a dupe for ones on the Topshop website. I’ll post a some of the comparable things at the end of this post.

But onto the things I’ve brought-

American Apparel space scape t-shirt

I’ve been wearing this with some rust colored cords I have or jeans. Quite a good length to cover your bum. Looks nice with a light denim jacket or gilet. American Apparel do proper t-shirts which I find wash well and go with everything. They are quite pricey at times, but for the range of colours and a basic that can be worn a multitude of ways..well worth it.

American Apparel See thru tee- Navy. I also have one in black, they were $9.

I love this it’s long, can be layered for any weather, though it’s sheer it’s so versatile. Would be nice for a night out with a blazer, some leather leggings or coated trousers from Zara and shoe boots.

Joseph- Cashmere leather elbow patch jumper

Very luxurious- got this from Net-a-porter in the sale. I love the simplicity and that it can be pared with jeans, trousers, worn day or night. I think as it’s longer I’d wear it with leggings.
Of course good to have a cashmere jumper which will keep you warm, feel nice next to your skin and last for years.

Thrift store buys:

Pink and white printed jumper
Think this is hand-knitted by someone. A floral digital type pattern. Quite a hot pink too in person.
Good with leggings, denim shirt or longer shirt layered underneath.

Grey Cable knit men’s lambswool jumper. This was a great find, from LL bean originally, think I paid about $2.50 for this jumper! I’d pair this with black shiny leggings or a leather skirt. Would also be nice with a white tailored shirt underneath.

Men’s chunky knit sweater- got this for about $2 and I have seen a very similar one in Topshop, see below this!

Topshop comparable jumper for 42 GBP

Burgundy print men’s sweater, very 90’s. I love the pattern. This was $2, another bargain. Gonna wear it with jeans, maybe a longer length shirt/blouse underneath. Might even throw on something floral with this. A black leather jacket would be nice with this and medium wash jeans.

Burgundy nubby men’s sweater with navy elbow patches
I am loving the nubby, mottled fabric for t-shirts and jumper’s this F/W 2012. Something about the colour and then flecks of a contrasting colour. It reminds me of cupcake sprinkles and 90’s American culture. This is burgundy with yellow and navy flecks.

Got this in the H&M men’s sale if you are looking for it. Love the suede elbow patches. I now have about 3 jumpers and 1 cardigan with the whole elbow farmer ‘esque’ look.

I also got a Leopard print faux fur, swing coat from the 70’s/ 80’s for $25. I’ll leave that for my next post as I have a lot of photo’s of it.

And I got women’s Grenson’s which I will post separately. The women’s line was released in September 2011 and I want to talk more in depth about that.

Thanks for reading, check back as I’ll be posting over the next few days.

Leopard Print Flats -Obsession- Haulage


I’ve had a thing for animal print since I was a teenager, maybe even a baby, but can’t remember any photo’s of me wearing it. I know my mum wore fur jackets and sparkly jumpsuits which are all in now again.

In the late 90’s I wore a short leopard print mini, think I got it from Miss Selfridge.
It was my favorite thing to wear. I’m sure there are many photo’s of me in it, god forbid! If I come across a photo I’ll post it. I went to a Michael Jackson concert and remember that being part of my outfit with a black shirt and platform trainers. I also wore pink leopard print shirts and in the 90’s leopard blouses which I probably brought from New Look and Littlewoods, oh the memories.

I think seeing animal print on the high street always reminds me of soap stars wearing leopard or zebra prints. You can have the whole bar maid look going on.

Look at Kat Slater from Eastenders or Bet Lynch from Corrie.. they donned a combo of animal prints together.

So when animal print has been such a big thing for a couple of season’s I’m obsessed with animal print shoes. I enjoy wearing flats and my current obsession is leopard flats.
I got two pairs a few months back from Topshop and another pair of loafers from River Island.

These fabulous chelsea boots are from topshop $75


Hightops sneakers from Topshop $50

these beauties from River Island and were about 30 (GBP)

I reckon my affection for Leopard and animal prints is the animal inside of me!!! I bloody love an animal print mate. Bit of Pat Butcher any day for me!

Fashionhaulage- Destination: Reykjavik & the U.K.


Always wanted to go to Iceland and this summer I thought what the heck and took my chance’s.

Combined a trip through Icelandair from New York stopping in Reykjavik for 5 days and then onto my home country of the U.K. Of course lots of shopping and window shopping had to be done.

Iceland is rather expensive for a start. I kept an open mind on what to buy when I was there.  As we were staying in an apartment right near Laugavegur the most popular shopping street in the city ( was literally a few blocks down hill and we were there) it was handy to browse stores nearby, our days started off here looking at the stores, in cafe’s and thrift stores and I picked up a couple of clothing items.
