It's summer! My exams are over! School is nearly over! And I have a tonne of things to post on this here blog that I haven't had time to post in the last few weeks!
Anyway, I guess I better start with another apology for not posting...exams are stressful but hopefully all the summer blogging I have planned will make up for my recent break. I'm sure lots of you had exams too and so understand my pain. I've got loads of things to fill you all in on, for example a few weekends ago I was (finally) lucky enough to see the David Bowie Is exhibition at the Victoria and Albert museum. As a Bowie fan I was completely overwhelmed by all the memorabilia they had on show, while as an art/design student I was fascinated by everything from the layout of the displays to the presentation of his costumes. It wasn't just a tribute to him, but more of an in-depth look into the life of an artist, something worth seeing whether you like his work or not.

We had an evening slot and so only got a very short time in the shop before it closed, resulting in me going on a very supermarket sweep-like escapade, trying to get as much merchandise as possible.
My top is from the V&A, my shirt & skirt are from a charity shop, and my jacket is from Beyond Retro.

I'm sorry for the short post, but I have a few more planned for this week, as I've got a bunch of film developed & loads of outfits photographed...and I'm going to the ponds with the girls tomorrow which might result in some summery pictures.
