Nostalgia










I read this article recently that questioned how far we should look back for inspiration. When our outfits are filled with nostalgic values on a memorable past, we are happy to watch Clueless and reblog images on Kate Moss from back in the day to give us something to look back on. That might be all well and good, but when are we gunna start producing our own content for our kids to be nostalgic over? When I quizzed Rowan on this topic last night, he said its because of Capitalism; it is easier and cheaper for industries to reproduce content that they already know people like than come up with new ideas. there is no need for market research when you know a two piece tartan is going to sell well due to its prior success.

And its not the fashion industry, hollywood enjoys remaking great films that were successful first time round, or just having sequels to films that people love and remember. When I was younger I used to work in a care home around every christmas, the old folks would sing songs they remember from their days, sweet romantic songs about their long lost loves. When we are in care homes, what are we going to be listening to, Calvin harris or Skillex? haha pick one!

Maybe I am wrong, maybe there is more to our generation than reblogging great mean girl quotes.  
What do you guys think?

Love,
Vanessa

Blue Nights


I shot this outfit a little while back on our weekly trip to the cinema, I remember noticing the change in weather as soon as I went outside. I have already got a cold and its not even september, but it gives me an opportunity to lay in bed and post outfits that have been lost in-between changing memory cards.

Fashion week is upon us, who is excited?

Love,
Vanessa

Clashing between seasons







As autumn outfits begin to surface on Instagram, I am torn between mourning how quick the summer has come and gone and happily welcoming the colder breeze of autumn. Since the morning have been much colder, I have been reaching for my oversized jumpers and layering it with my summer pieces: isn't that what autumn is about?

Hope you guys have a great bank holiday,
I am off to notting hill carnival!

Lots of Love
Vanessa
