At 17. No mates.
Hmm, as terrified as I am, I am also a little bit excited as i'm pretty much going down there- cheesy as it sounds- to follow my dreams. Just gonna be tough without my mum there to gies a wee cuddle, and obviously i'm pretty scared of getting lost/lonely/lost again. Ah well, a nightly read of the genius "Keep Calm and Carry On" book reassures me that i'd be absolutely kicking myself if I missed out on this mahooosive opportunity.

My passion (such a cliche but "passion 4 fashion" still gets me!) So I still need to actually, properly read Vogue and LOVE as well as needing to fully scan through all the new shows (it's a tough job, eh?)... but here's a little snippet of NYFW and what's going on across the pond.
It's not my favourite of the fashion weeks, hence the lack of buzzing tweets and blog posts, but NYFW does offer up some cracking shows- as well as, obviously, the first look at SS's hottest trends to look forward to (helloooo orange.)

Here are my pick of the shows so far:
