So the other day I was wearing a grey top, black leather leggings, a windbreaker I bought in Berlin and some gold hoop earrings. I got told by my Media teacher that if the windbreaker was on anyone else they'd look like Vicky Pollard and my step-Mum asked whether I trying to look like a chav, when I said yeah she replied with 'like a kind of chavvy chic then?'. Perfect, I thought. Chavvy chic is exactly the look I was going for.
With the return of windbreakers, airmax and sports brands, such as Adidas and Nike, making a come back in the Fashion scene, chavvy chic is definitely a trend to keep your eye on.

Found this image in a 1994 issue of the magazine Fashion Weekly. Why did Orla Kiely look so cool then? Now it's just for Mum's. (Including my own)

As you may know if you know me personally, I work in Zara in Bristol's Cabot Circus store. It's a hard job but I do actually enjoy it, however much I moan. The main reason I enjoy it, is the amazing clothes we get in our store. Seeing them come in to the store, how many get sold, picking them for customers etc are what makes the job worth doing. (And the discount of course!)

Got back from Berlin on Sunday, where I went with my sister for 5 days last week. If you've not been to Berlin, and like pretty buildings, beautiful shops and an amazing nightlife, then you should definitely go!
As I said, the buildings are soo pretty, the whole city looks as if around about 5 years ago, they knocked a whole city down and started again, or like the whole place is some kind of  representation of a city of the future. Why has Britain not taken Berlin as an inspiration for better things?
 Whilst we were there, we went shopping in some of the most amazing shops, including one called Paul's Boutique, (nothing to do with the extremely chavvy brand of bags), which sold anything from vintage Fred Perry coats, to battered New Balance trainers and old Adidas tees.You could spend hours sorting through the jumble of clothes here but you'll always take away something great. 

 For three of the nights there we went to a place called White Trash Fast Food, on the first night we went there, we went to the restaurant part, where you could order their dishes of Fuck-You Fries or even an Octopus Burger. The second and third night we went to White Trash we went to the club downstairs, which played decent music, had decent prices for drinks and we had a really sick time.
As well as seeing the best shops and going to great places at night, we did see some historical things, like the East Side Gallery on the Berlin wall. After they knocked down the wall, they decided to make the wall a gallery of graffiti and it's become a great place for tourists to see, and a good photograph opportunity.

So there you go, that's my time in Berlin. I really enjoyed it and would recommend anyone to go as it's a really great place to be, with loads of things to do and see. You'll be missing out if you don't.

So I'm starting a blog. It's gonna be mainly fashion based but will have posts about anything and everything I'm interested in really.. I've been meaning to start this for a while but procrastination got the better of me and it's taken months and months to start this up, but hopefully I'll keep it up! So yeah, keep checking back for more posts!
