Burberry have relocated their London Head Office to Horseferry House in Westminster. I normally wouldn't write about something like this but the interior is so super slick, I would love to go there and have a nosey around, I'd make sure I took my shoes off at the door though! Burberry (along with Paul Smith obviously) is one of those brands that I aspire to and would it turn love to work for.
In other news, I've purchased a couple more pairs of shoes.
Marc Jacobs Vans Slip-ons (hooray for TKmaxx thats all I can say)
Clarks Desert Boots
Oh and this is also my 100th post! Thank you to everyone that has ever took the time to have a browse and to anyone who has taken an interest in my blog. I know I don't really have that many readers but that doesn't matter. A special thanks to Steve and EJ at Style Salvage for taking an extra keen interest.
I'm currently looking for work experience for my third year at uni, so if anyone knows of any work placements anywhere in England in pretty much anything to do with fashion, get in touch.

I totally love this shoot which currently features on fashion156. Keeping the location fairly simple but the styling is spot on. The multi-coloured suit is by London College of Fashion's MA Rohan Kale, it's just amazing. Check the website for an up close look because the detailing of it is just incredible. After seeing this shoot I'm craving a bright pink shirt, orange cardigan and acid wash jacket. Make sure you check out fashion156, it's an online mens and womenswear magazine featuring up-to-date products, trends, hair and beauty, street styling and much more.

Oh and the Ben Sherman for Loake brogues that I featured in a post last week arrive but they are too big for me, if anyone is interested in buying them contact me. They are size 9/43.

So Easter Bank Holiday has just passed and me and James decided to go for a (now what seems like annually) road trip to the countryside. Blackpool isn't really that big and a 15 minute drive from my house in the middle of nowhere really. The road a tretious and animals wonder across the road to add an extra element of danger, oh and there are big drops and no barriers! Its so nice though, just so peaceful.
This bit James needed to be extra carful, certain death if his eyes aren't on the road.
What's the opposite of big drops, big cliffs!We had a bit of a rough time here trying to cross the little stream but it was impossible as James decided to wear Converse!
We decided to climb one of the many hills, it took about 15 mins to walk up and we had to stop. Clearly bigger than we thought.
I took this when we were pretty far up the hill, James has pretty bad eyes but I knew I could see a shape in the hills in the distance. IT LOOKS LIKE A FACE! But who does it look like?
I had to take a photo of this, it most likely belonged to a sheep, this is the type of stuff were finding up hills these days.
On a different note I went shopping today in Manchester. Heres what I got:
Bright red city shorts - H&M
Rashberry t-shirt - American Apparel
Blue batwing t-shirt - Topman
Grey/white/blue panel shirt - H&M

"Givenchy Homme Fancy Pants", as Tweet describes them. These are what dreams are made with, you know the ones where you dream about leather pants that are attached to shoes and lace up all the way, we've all been there. Image from Jak & Jil of course.
Heres my look of the week, I think it's about time I started a new section. I found this uber cool lady on Garance Dore. Black lipstick gets a big thumbs up from me, really like he fit of the t-shirt too.
