Thou Shall Exploit All Photo Ops

This is the one of the ten commandments of any fashion follower and I have to say that Lola and I nearly always follow this commandment to the tee.
During the period between finishing our exams and going on holiday, a lot has gone down in our world. Even though we may not have found the time to blog, we definitely did not forget to capture it all in photos. I present to you shots from our pre-summer warm up...

Lola: Jacket - Vintage from Cow Manchester, Bag- ASOS, Owl necklace -Ebay, Shorts - New Look
Fikki: Jacket - DKNY, Crop Top - Vintage from American Apparel, Jeggings - H&M, Bag - Primark

So The highlights were

1) Raving hard at Radio 1 DJ Annie Mac's (photo 7) DJ set at Fallotwfest at the Apollo in Manchester.

2) Having an awesome night at Pangea(photo 4,8,9 - the student union's summer Festival)

3) Celebrating 100 years of our local student park at an awesome music festival. The images I have of this event may not exist but the memories will last a life time.

As you guys can probably tell, we love music as much as fashion and the two often go hand in hand in our lives.

Beauty Without Colour

If you live in the UK and have been watching Channel 4's love child E4, you might have seen adverts for Albino United. It tells the story of a Tanzanian football team made up of a group of young albino men with the ambition to prove, in a country where albinos are being murdered, that they are able to take part in everyday society.

So I thought to myself, this should be great show...A good mix of football (which i have to say I love), Africa (my home-continent) and Topical issues...so I set a reminder.

Unfortunately 10 minutes into the show, I got sidetracked and ended up on the internet looking for albinism in the fashion world and being a bit of a science geek I also looked up how it occurs.

It is interesting how a tv programme about football has led me to find some absolutely amazing faces that have rocked the fashion world. The likes of Connie Chiu, Diandra Forrest and Shaun Ross prove that beauty definitely exists in all skin tones!

I may attempt to watch the show another time.

It May Be Dark And Grey Outside But These Colours Don't Fade.

Long Hiatus, I know. Last stretch of exams came and I had a well deserved break to the end of exams. Now there's pretty much nothing to do. Today Fikki and I, seeing as there was absolutely nothing to do, went on a sightseeing mission around central Manchester i.e. venture past the comfort zone. The rain and gloom unfortunately is back again so that was annoying. We did however manage to get some good shots. Enjoy :)

I love this Sweater. Took it from my mum as she will no longer wear it anymore. It was her staple while pregnant with my brother hence why it is massive.

Fikki has had this denim jacket since she was about 9 years old. So I guess it is a vintage denim jacket from the 90s. Her mum, like many mothers out there, bought this jacket 5 sizes too big with the idea that Fikki will grow into it. It may have taken 10 years but she has finally grown into it.

Fikki bought this vintage 80s romper at the American Apparel Rummage Sale in Brick Lane, London. We luckily went on the day without the infamous riots and took home some amazing bargains.
