Returning to Dazed

Snoop Dogg - Dazed & Confused Magazine Cover [United States] (1 August 2012)
After mopping about this summer, moaning about having nothing to do, I decided to get back in touch with Elizabeth Fraser-Bell, deputy fashion editor at Dazed and Confused. 


I managed to bag myself an internship at the style magazine last December. It included hard work, heavy suitcases and long hours but I was working at one of my favourite publications so I won't complain. I emailed Elizabeth the other day to ask if I could return to the Dazed fashion department. 

Knowing how many interns come and go at the magazine I was worried that I might not be remembered but thankfully I got a warm reply, welcoming me back to work at Dazed. I will be returning in August and can't wait to be heading back to the Dazed and Confused office.

USED



















Yesterday afternoon I found myself back in the East End, heading towards the Used magazine office. Used is a new biannual publication, that focuses on the connection between fashion and art. I met with the lovely Rebecca Sammon - the Fashion Editor of Used, to discuss potential work experience there for myself in the future. The magazine office was quaint and cute, somewhere I would definitely like to work. My chat with Rebecca went well and we established that I will be returning to Used to help out in the next few weeks, which I am very much looking forward to.

Lazy Oaf X Batman

 


To celebrate the release of The Dark Knight Rises, Lazy Oaf have teamed up with Batman to create a capsule collection for men and women. 

In true Lazy Oaf style, the collection is animated, full of prints, with bat wing dresses, sheer crop tops, leotards, shirts and tee shirts. The batman print crop top in the image above has particularly caught my eye, and I can safely say I will be waiting for the collection to launch this Friday. 

One of my favourite photographers, Viktor Vauthier shot the campaign for the collection.

Life of a Fashion Intern

Alexis Knox
Today I'm heading down to Notion magazine's office in Old Street, to meet and help out fashion stylist Alexis Knox's team. The rain is pouring down so fingers crossed I'm not sent out running round London as usual. Either way I'm happy to have the chance intern for Alexis as I've been a follower of her and her work for a while. 

Happy Interning to me!




For my work experience with Alexis Knox's team I had to style a show room for a press show that will take place later this week. It's reassuring to know that not all internships mean dragging suitcases round London! The day was spent sorting rails of clothing and styling mannequins. At the end of the day I swapped numbers with Alexis's Fashion Assistants, who said they'll let me know when they next need an extra pair of helping hands...

Dungarees


I injected a hit of nostalgia into my wardrobe when I purchased a new pair of dungarees last week. I have always lusted after the perfect pair of dungarees. Playful and childlike, they remind me of the good old days, when  I was able to run around getting grass stained knees in the summer. However, unlike my childhood, I wont be using my dunga's as overalls to protect myself from the dangers of my back garden. 
The hunt for the perfect pair began early this year. London's cool kids nabbed vintage one's from the likes of Beyond Retro and Rokit. But alas, my tiny 5'3 self found it hard to track down a pair that would fit me without looking like I drowning under a sea of denim. 
So I turned to the high street. Trusty Topshop let me down and Urban Outfitters only had dungaree skirts and I was after shorts. 
I finally found the perfect pair in American Apparel. I ended up paying £76 - a little on the pricey side I agree - but I know I will where these babies constantly throughout summer. The baggy fit adds a tomboy charm and my new dungaree's are both pretty and practical! All I need now is my jelly shoes, vintage ray bans and Hawaiian shirt and I'm ready for summer.

Spoiling myself..

I decided it was time to treat myself for two reasons. 1. My hard work for Nicole Freeman needed to be rewarded and 2. I haven't treated myself in far too long.


I bought a Mink Pink knitted jumper with 3/4 length sleeves. I love the holey detail on the jumper and for this reason, I also bought a lace crop top to wear underneath it. The crop top also works well as a comfy alternative to a bra. Both pieces are from Urban Outfitters.


 I also treated myself to a ditsy floral print playsuit, also from Urban Outfitters. Not something I'd usually be drawn to, but thought I would try something more feminine for once. The cut out detail breaks up the print nicely and I look forward to wearing this little number with converse and a denim jacket when the sun comes out. My final (and favourite) purchase is a pair of dungarees from American Apparel. Due to their expense, I decided to order these online to save myself 15% so I'm looking forward to having these babies delivered in the next few days.
