How I Rock: My Pink Fluffy Jumper

         

          

OMG! I don't think I've ever been more excited about releasing a blog post but I am legitimately in love with these photos! Shout out to the mastermind behind the camera... Thank you Jessi boo!

 I'm also crazy about this outfit. Although I would consider it to be a standard everyday outfit for me, as with many of my previous blog posts, it's the specific pieces that the outfit is composed of  that make it that extra bit special. First of all the hat is hand crafted made to show an outward display of my inner Queen-ness and unique character. and well the cuteness of this jumper  pretty much reflects the utopia of  my mind. The short sleeves also cater perfectly to that weird British summer weather where it's, not cold enough for a jumper but not hot enough to go all out. kind of like the unfortunate weather we're having now. 

God willing the hats will be on sale soon and will still be hand made with love direct from Ajobi (along with other pieces I have made which have featured in my previous blog posts). I will be sure to notify you when that happens! P.S. although these photos are amazing I really wouldn't advise sitting at the edge of a platform so close to the train track... it could honestly end really badly.

A day in the life of a Central Saint Martins student


Other than being renounced for it's outstanding reputation as the world best fashion school there is more to Central Saint Martins than it's reputation. 


Over the past year of studying here, I have found it to be an enjoyable yet challenging experience. Like every other institution it has it's highs and lows and despite it's high rating it is definitely not the place for everyone going in to the fashion industry and it won't guarantee you success in your future career (which is a lie that a lot of people trick themselves into thinking is true.) I too had that unfortunate prescription before I started. "If I don't make it in to CSM I won't be as great a success in the fashion industry". I know of many people that have this perception yet thousands of people graduate from here  every year and still only a handful are successful enough for you to hear about. 


Although I have learnt a lot so far from my university such as how to improve my pace and different methods of working, I really feel that it depends on the individual... How you work and how determined you are to make it. It could be argued that the success rate of Central Saint Martins is down to their process of elimination during their interview/portfolio review stage. They only select the best which means the individuals chosen (such as myself) already have the drive and the skills to succeed with out having to be taught much or anything at all (this is something I have observed in my time here). 


Despite the negative factors, University of the Arts London is a great place to be . It is especially good for networking and because of it's outstanding reputation more opportunities are given to it's students than other university's may be able to offer. UAL campuses are located in London- one of the worlds fashion capitals; which also makes it easier to indulge yourself in all things fashion.


If you are looking to apply to any of the UAL colleges in particular Central Saint Martins here are 5 tips which I fell are most important; 


1. Be open minded 

2. Be prepared to work ALL hours of the day, everyday (especially to meet those pesky regular deadlines)

3. Do not procrastinate (it really does have a snowball effect) 

4. Network with your peers as much as possible

5. Enjoy yourself !!! After all it is your money...

How I Rock: My Obey Attire (Spring Lookbook Outfit 2)



Hat- Furisto London 
Chocker & Africa Necklace- eBay
Red Beaded Chain- Nigeria
Baseball Shirt- Obey
Leather Sleeved Baseball Jacket- Obey
High Waisted Jeans- H&M
Shoes- Nike AirMax one

I love obey! I have at least seven or so quality items from them currently and I'm sure my collection will continue to grow. Their clothes always have such a cool grungy look to them, which is perfect for my personal style. The baseball shirt that I am wearing is actually a Men's but I feel that that's what makes the fit all the more better, as it isn't too fitted on me which I like. The Baseball Jacket I am wearing has real leather sleeves which gives it more of an authentic look and is guaranteed to last you a much longer time than the cheaper options of a leather look jacket, which seems to peal after too much wear. This one will grow with you!
