First OOTD.

May 30, 2013

I’ve done a couple of dodgy ‘OOTD’s in the past, usually just a iPhone Instagram collage of bits of clothing that I’ve been wearing – but today, you’re in for a treat: here’s me in all my ‘glory’. The outfit I’m wearing is a mismatch of mine and my sister’s wardrobe as she’s recently been visiting me (and took the photos, bless ‘er) and we’ve been doing a little bit of swapsies.

Ebony’s Trip To Cambridge/London: Day 1.

November 9, 2012

Hello! It’s finally time to get posting again, I think! I’m currently sat on the Virgin ‘Super’ Voyager enroute to Cambridge – though, arguably, it’s the slowest one I’ve ever travelled on. If you’re not a regular reader of my blog, I’m off on a little journey this week: firstly, I’m going to Cambridge Uni for the weekend to stay with my ‘bezzie mate’ Heather, before going on to London on Sunday in preparation for my week of work experience at Elle magazine starting Monday. I somehow managed to get the train this morning (granted, an hour later than originally planned), despite not having packed until about 9:30 – oops. Packed all the essentials: Kindle, MacBook, phone, nail varnish remover pads… Lush facemasks, y’know. Although, I have stupidly packed practically an entire week’s worth of clothes in a paper Selfridges bag – and it’s intermittently raining. Hopefully all my new get-up won’t end up all over Cambridge train station.

Today’s plan is to change trains at Birmingham then straight off to Cambridge – hopefully with time to do a little shopping when I get there, as we’re supposed to be going to an 80s-themed night out tonight (they call nights out ‘bops’, how strange?). I’m very much looking forward to checking out Cambridge, it looks absolutely divine from pictures – though I’m not sure my hodgepodge Northern/Welsh/Irishy accent is going to go down a storm with the posh and mighty. I’m sure I’ll update with some hilarious miscommunication stories before Sunday.

Here’s me, awkwardly taking an awkward picture on the train, feeling awkward:

Shoe of the Week – Underground Creepers.

January 10, 2012

A few months ago, I was trawling the Urban Outfitters website when I came across the most peculiar pair of shoes – Underground’s Creepers. Now, I’m not talking as peculiar as Kobi Levy’s creations, but they are still pretty ‘out there’. Creepers are an amalgamation between huge gothic skate shoes (bit of a paradox, but it does make sense) and the Spice Girls’ platform trainers of the nineties. Arguably, these aren’t the coolest inspirations behind a shoe design, but the cross chain-swathed Tumblr crowd and Hipsters worldwide are swarming to them like Lennon-bespectacled, leather short-donning flies. If you’re listening to the likes of WU LYF and currently sat with bleach destroying the ends of your slightly backcombed hair, chances are – you probably own a pair of these shoes. Add piercings to that equation and you probably fashion a pair as your slippers.
