So the past week has been fairly busy. Setting up my graduate exhibition REVEAL and attending the opening night (the free bar that was supposed to last for 3 hours ran out in 45 minutes!). Since then I've been having a well-deserved break for a few days and now the packing begins because.....I'm moving to London in a week! So thought this was a good opportunity to do a workwear/general inspiration post for going to work at ELLE magazine. So excited to start properly, it will be fantastic.

Loving the grey t-shirt, leather shorts, cardie combo on Alexa.

 These beauties from Topshop Boutique (£75) will be perfect for later summer and then Autumn/Winter. Too hot for leather shorts atm!

This oversized stripe t-shirt will be SO easy to wear for work on a hot day. Teamed with heeled ankle boots and bare legs (£32, Topshop Boutique)

Also LOVING this dress from COS, definately a new staple wardrobe piece (love the leather pockets)

And as I am a staunch A/W girl, I have been looking for new winter coats already.

On the list so far I have a flying jacket (hoping to get a vintage one) and either a cape or grey coat, like this beautiful Stella McCartney number, available from Net-A-Porter.

Or this BEAUT of a coat from Miu Miu:

Some things to look forward to:

1. Starting work at ELLE magazine next Monday!!
2. The launch of Mr Porter (new from Net-a-Porter)
3. The return of my gorgeous boyfriend.
4. The soon-to-be-made purchase of the Mulberry Oversized Alexa.
5. Summertime in London.

Graduate Fashion Week

so, it has been Graduate Fashion Week at Earl's Court 2 this week and....I WON AN AWARD!!!

So flattered to be even shortlisted for the award I won and really didn't think I would win at all. Still in shock, very overwhelmed but extremely happy and so pleased that all of my hard work has been recognised!

So, last night at the Gala Show I was presented with the HACHETTE FILIPAACHI MEDIA AND DESIGN AWARD for my BACKSTAGE book by the CEO of HF Kevin Hand aaaaaand ERIN O'CONNOR!! She is incredible - so ethereal and TALL.

Bagged myself a lovely glass trophy, £750 and get mentor support for 2 years from GFW.

So here's one of the many photos of me with my award (still waiting for the official photo to come on the GFW site)
Had a fab time at the afterparty and did a few interviews which is always good!

Off to Leeds for the weekend now and then setting up our graduate show at uni called REVEAL. The preview is on Wednesday evening so we have lots to set up!

If anybody wants any more details about my work please let me know.
