Patterns by Pilotto

For a while now Pilotto has intrigued me in a few ways, with it's interesting patterns ranging in different colours and shapes to fabrics carefully and delicately designed to aesthetically please the eye in the blink of an eye. I have furthermore seen these types of intricate patterns on other garments from other retailers which makes me think that it could possibly make an appearance in a lot of people's choices in clothing this year.  I know that I am waiting to grab my first Pilotto or Pilotto type garment very soon which I am excited about. I found some great pieces on net-a-porter.com so check it out!

Mr. Selfridge


ITV's new hit show Mr Selfridge has wowed audiences ranging from different ages and professions not just those with fashion insight. This portrayal of the man who started the multi-million retail business is played by Mr Jeremy Piven also well known as Ari Gold on the show Entourage.Well to say the least I was very impressed. It kept me intrigued throughout the whole of the juicy one and a half hours. I am excited to see how the rest of the show unravels. I encourage you all to tune in!

What is so special about Selfridges is that is has a very well balanced selection of delicate and detailed garments suited for any body type or style. I went on the website and found a bunch of dresses that I adore, especially for summer. The range of patterned fabrics makes it appealing to the eye and interesting to look at. Here are some examples. 

Alexander McQueen Wool dress
Alexander McQueen Printed dress
Peter Pilotto printed silk blend dress
Preen Bondi oversized dress
House of Holland Stripe dress

Christopher Cane Pleated dress
And my favourite: The detail of the print is so exquisite, and lies so well on the body, all in all, a very well made garment.

Weirddough obsession

Seriously check those videos out, such musical talent. 

I bid 2012 a goodbye and welcome 2013 with a fresh mind. Sounds corny. But had to be said. I hope everyone's holidays were filled with everything amazing, family, food, laughter, happiness and joy, the list could go on. But nevertheless I hope each and every one of you will start 2013 with some ambition. Ambition is what leads to the path to actually getting somewhere. For me, my ambition or accomplishments I would like to achieve this year is to get into University, and start meeting incredible new people whilst exploring the inner most crevices of the city. So enough about this, I want to visually show you some photographs of my time during Christmas and New years.
