Uni details

Sorry for the lack of posts guys but I'm finding it extremely hard to find a photographer her at uni in Brighton (so if you know anyone that could help me out hit me up ha) but I think I may have finally found a solution to that. In the mean time I wanted to show you a few details from my university room as I'm really proud of how it turned out and it honestly may feel a bit more like home than my room at my house because I really worked on getting everything just how I wanted it.
In terms of all the pictures on the wall above my bed they are all disposable camera photos from the last year or so (bar a few of me when I was little) and you may recognise a few from my disposable photo posts.

Fashion archives of Fashionably Unknown

I've been searching through all of my family's old hard drives to find any pictures I want to keep for myself and my goodness it was a whirlwind trip of embarrassing childhood photos complete with awful hair cuts and 2000's fashion. I thought as a treat to you all I would share some of my favourites on this blog.

So this is a great place to start as obviously my sass was evident from a young age (I want to say about eight) and I think this rainbow shirt was a perfect choice for my fabulous childhood personality.

Wedding photos are always suitably scarring but I actually kind of like this floral dress I am wearing. I'm a bit more dubious about those flowery white tights and pink hoodie, not very wedding. I also apologise to my sister's and cousin for this photo as you were all going through your awkward early teen years (see awful silver dress worn by my sister Lizzie).

Back to being a cute eight year old and I loved Disney World, as seen by my Stitch visor which I loved for a few years after this (why?!?). I was also still in the stage where I refused to wear jeans or any other trouser with buttons so cue grey trackies.

 Time to skip forward to 2008 where I am not longer cute but a horrendously awkward twelve year old. Apparently I have not only got over my jeans fear but I liked to roll them up as far as they would go. Again sorry to my sisters (your preppy phase was in full swing here).

I actually kind of like this shirt but why would anyone sane ever let me get my hair cut like that. The split full fringe has never been a good look.

I was a big fab of the monochrome even back then and leopard print accent trainers are pretty cute. Style points to me.

Ok so it was snowing but everything about this is just not alright any more. Love the dinosaur umbrella however.

Yay I'm back to being cute again and honestly I think those velvet leopard print trousers were (are still are) my most iconic fashion piece, especially as I went on a water ride and they got so wet I was made to take them off and walk around in my underwear (acceptable for an eight year old).

The balaclava look is still one I adopt on ski trips.

Because if you don't use a muffler around your face while skiing and it is windy you will end up like this. Wind burn is not cute but neither is that shirt which I'm pretty sure has something spilt on it.

And finally the most embarrassing I am willing to show you. We really went all out for flourescent 13th birthday parties and I think I wanted to be a princess with a tiara and feather boa. It wasn't even my birthday!

Do I Wanna Know?

Wow my blue hair was so bright back when these were taken (yes this was like two weeks ago and we haven't seen the sun since then) I miss that and I miss summer because autumn has well and truly come here in the UK but I'm not quite ready to let go of my collection of flowery shorts and floaty crop tops. Can't hot weather come back for just a couple more weeks please. Anyway this blouse is the holy grail of chiffon shirts as it is light, airy, pretty but not too see through. I have wore it about every other day since I bought it earlier this month and I actually have no problem with that.

WCW: Mimi Elashiry

I'm quite a instagram stalker really and I love coming across new accounts that I can sit and scroll through for hours at a time (it helps me forget my own unfiltered life). One such account was the instagram of 18 year old Australian model Mimi Elashiry. My first thought was how is she the same age as me (damn the curse of baby face), secondly I just fell in love with her fashion. She has a really hippy/festival/flower child vibe going on which I now more than ever am attempting to emulate (see future posts). I literally spent over an hour scrolling through basically her entire feed last week and I basically wanted to like every photo, they are all composed and edited so perfectly.

The quay is one of my favourite places to hang out in town (you can find me drinking with friends in the spoons) and so I thought it was about time to get some photos in the red brick lanes there. These dungarees have been such a blessing to my life and I just don't really ever want to take them off. They were reduced to £7 in Primark so I mean it would be a crime to have not bought them really. 
Also if you didn't notice in my last outfit post I have half blue hair now.

Summer disposables

I've been attempting to take loads of disposable photos this summer to a) document what actually happens and make it look cool and b) have a load of photos to pin up on my wall when I move to Brighton. These photos are some of the results so far and they feature many of my closest friends who are all moving away next month as well so these serve as a memento of the best summer of my life so far.

Wind in the wires

Sometimes I forget that I live in one of England's most popular holiday destination and that this beautiful view is only ten minutes down the road. I've been thinking about it a lot recently since today I officially found out that I will be moving to Brighton next month. As much as I can't wait to move on to a new chapter in my life I will miss the scenery of Poole and Sandbanks so much (maybe one day I will move back and into one of the million pound houses ha) as it is all I have ever known and really it is beautiful.
(Also notice my new bleach blonde and blue hair for summer.)
