GLASTONBURY ’17 

So Glastonbury was already two weeks ago and I still can’t get over it.

After trying for three years in a row to get tickets, I was lucky enough to bag myself two coach packages at the resale back in April – £600 gone from my account at the click of a button, but boy was it worth it.

For anyone that hasn’t yet been and has been dying to go like I have, it definitely exceeds expectations. It’s amazing – everywhere you go there is something to do and see. The detail of every pop up store and food place is unbelievable. So hats off to all the people that spent months putting it together.

I am not going to bore you by giving you the usual ‘festival essentials’ list, but there is one thing I do recommend – DO NOT FREAK OUT IF YOU SEE YOUR IDOL JUST CASUALLY WALKING AROUND THE FESTIVAL. I still cannot get over the fact that I walked straight past Alexa Chung and Father John Misty (after we had seen him perform) and because I was under the influence of alcohol and what not, I panicked, freaked out, stared at them, followed them for a bit, and then completely bottled it. I will never live it down, but I just gotta keep telling myself that they are people just like you and me, and maybe they wouldn’t have appreciated to get “fanned girled” on their night out at the festival… I guess. Oh and also walked past MC Grindah – if any of you have watched the BBC mockumentary ‘People just do nothing’ you would know who he is. It is the funniest show!

But anyhow, I put together a little video of all the footage I did manage to get throughout the week, enjoy 🎥

She did it! Alexa Chung for Alexachung

Tuesday 31st May, 2017 – the day I had been impatiently waiting for since I was 16 years old… the Queen of fashion Alexa Chung finally launched her own label and it is sooooo Alexa Chung. The whole collection (which I think is 145 pieces altogether) is to die for. It ranges from jumpers to denim to earrings to thick silver heels – it is everything Alexa embodies and more. You can see inspiration from 60s/70s rock ‘n’ roll fashion including leather and sequin dresses, a two-piece Bowie number, and even a Beetlejuice inspired suit. The collection also includes her trademark tomboyish with a hint of Parisian girl style – definitely the obvious next step after her amazing collaboration with Marks & Spencer’s (still the pride and joy of my wardrobe). Even the runway show was magical – wedding-themed in a chapel near Regent’s Park, with a live girl choir singing classic tunes and confetti… what more could you want. I guess as one of the many ‘number one’ fans I’m quite biased as I will love anything Alexa Chung does, BUT, anyone who is into cool chic style would think this collection is great.

The only thing though – shame about the price tags  :(((((( (the cheapest items are the T-shirts at £85). 

But anyway, I’ve made a collage of few of my fav pieces… ENJOY!
