WINTER INSPO

















all the photos from tumblr
Just a random collection of images that have inspired me in the last couple of weeks from my tumblr which I have been getting addicted to again recently. I have now finished for the Christmas holidays although I have to revise a lot for my exams in January. HAVE A GREAT CHRISTMAS!

DEER STALKER







wearing: jumper from romwe, skirt from forever 21, necklace from accessorize, silver ring from family,
gold ring from new look.

Hey again guys! I'm sorry it has been ages but I literally have just keep forgetting to take pictures of my outfit and since it is properly winter now my pictures have to be inside as it gets dark before I get home from school. Anyway, this jumper is one of my absolute favourites at the moment. I saw it on several bloggers but when I say it on Art In Our Blood I knew I had to get it. It is such a gorgeous mint green colour and I love the rips on the sleeves and at the bottom. This skirt makes me feel so Christmassy because it is full of bronze glitter and glitter always makes me think of Christmas. It is great for a low key party.
I promise I will keep up with my posting (my sister also comes home from university tomorrow so she can take pictures for me) and I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas/Hannukah/etc. period.

AN APOLOGY

Sorry I have been MIA recently but my sister went to uni so I couldn't use her camera. I have now got my DSLR (Nikon D3100 if you were wondering) but my tripod hasn't arrived yet. I will however try to get some outfit posts up next week, maybe even tomorrow. Also it will be harder to get pictures outside at the moment because by the time I get home from school it is already getting dark (oh how I hate winter) which means I may have to take pictures inside for the moment.

See you soon,

MANIAC, MANIAC ON POLYVORE

I have recently discovered Polyvore and my life is now complete! It is so easy to style, budget-free, and get loads of inspirations for real life outfits. It does, however, extend my wishlist 10-fold so it is definitely not good for my bank balance. As you can see by my most recent styles I am really craving sheer shirts at the moment. I only actually have one (as seen in 'the scientist') and I would like to collect a few more of them since they are wardrobe essentials. If you haven't guessed the title of this post is a play on words from She's a maniac, maniac on the floor.
Also, I ordered my provisional license today so when it arrives I can begin my driving lessons. I am so excited!! It is only 4 days til my birthday which means I am inching ever closer to being able to buy my DSLR camera which I have been wanting since I started this blog. Hope you have happy days!

THE SCIENTIST



wearing: jeans from spain, red top from topshop, shirt from river island, shoes from new look,
necklace from river island.






Hey guys, sorry I have been a bit MIA the last few days but I have been working really hard at school and doing loads of extra curricular stuff and applying for volunteering at the hospital etc. But that life and I'm back now. It has been really had to get outfit shots recently since it has been non stop raining for about the past 3 weeks. However, I did manage to get a few shots of one of my outfits before the heavens open again. You can even see how horrible the sky was in the first picture. I'll try to get some more outfit posts soon.

In other news, it is my birthday in 8 days and I am going to be 17, how exciting is that. I can't believe I will finally be able to learn to drive. That is just scary. I also now have a blog email address, fashionablyunknownblog.gmail.com so if you have any questions or anything you want to say to me, you can shoot me an email!

GOOD MORNING SUNSHINE





wearing: dress from sister, cardigan from river island, shoes from dorothy perkins, necklace from  river island


The summer has really gone now and we have had four straight days of rain and I am pretty sure it is set to rain for the next 6 weeks straight. This outfit was from a couple of days ago which was like the last day of sun so I decided to wear this summer dress which was given to me by my sister. I thought it would be the last day I could wear a dress without tights. This dress is really cutesy and I love the beachy feel to it with the red and white stripes. The length is really flattering but this is my only dress of this length. I will have to stock up when spring comes again.

This week has been really hectic with A LOT of Spanish homework and science stuff. I'm settling to doing my A levels now though so things are calming down a bit :)

ELLE- 1952





There was one thing I neglected to show you from my trip to Paris, the 1952 French Elle I bought on one of the artist stalls by the river. I obviously can't read a word of what it says but it is awesome just to look at the pictures and to see the amazing dresses and coats that fill the pages. It was the issue showing the new age dresses because fabric rationing had just ended. People were so shocked that you could wear floor length dresses with plenty of ruffle without having to scrounge for practically a year. It is so hard to think that people were so restricted by how much fabric they could buy that clothes were often made from tablecloths and curtains. We live in such a consumerist society today that we can practically buy as much as we want and internet shopping has made that so much easier.

THE INDIANS AND THE AZTECS




wearing:  top from new look, skirt from h&m, boots from forever 21



I decided to mix two American races today by wearing my fringed native American/red Indian t-shirt which I have treasured for a while now. I love hoe the fringing is cut straight into the design rather than being added on later because it gives it a really home-made vibe (I actually had people asking me how I could do it so neatly). I paired it with my denim, Aztec print skirt because I loved the contrast between the relaxed t-shirt and the tight skirt. I finally added my forever 21 boots to throw in a toughed up explorer vibe. Well at least that's what I thought these boots portrayed.

Finally getting back into the swing of things school wise but having trouble taking pictures after school before the sun sinks too low behind the house. Ah well I guess that is just a sign that winter is coming soon.

ART IN OUR BLOOD INTERVIEW


Recently I had an over email interview with Jennifer Wang for Art In Our Blood (artinourblood.blogspot.com). She has just had her one year blog anniversary so I decided to ask her some questions about her blog and her style.

Why did you first decide to create your own blog?

I wanted to get involved at as an early age as I could with the fashion industry so I could network and find and audience to, most importantly, see my fashion design work.

How has your blog evolved from when it first started?

It's definitely becoming more professional and I view it in a very business like manner. I definitely put a lot more time into writing quality posts and making sure I'm spread out on different social media outlets.

What is your favourite thing about blogging?


Becoming friends with some of the other lookbookers! It's really crazy when you have admired someone for their style for so long and now you are friends with them! And of course, I'm very thankful for the opportunity to receive sponsored clothing. It allows me to have tons more freedom to experiment with my style without hurting my wallet.

How long do you spend picking out your outfits each day?

What I usually do is pick out three or four outfits for the week on the weekend beforehand, which on average, takes an hour because I try lots of different combos.

What is your favourite item of clothing at the moment?

My Jeffrey Campbell x Wasteland Coltranes!!

A dress she made for one of her classes
And finally, what advice would you give to someone who has just started a fashion blog?

Layout and photo quality do matter a lot. Even if you have really good style, it will be a lot harder to gain a following without these two elements. The best way to go with the layout is clean and as minimalistic as you can get it so your photos are the things that stand out. And with photos, I recommend buying a DSLR (Digital SLR camera) and learning how to utilize all the features on it.


You should all go check out Jennifer's blog if you haven't already because all her outfits are so cool and unique and her photography is pretty ace as well. She is one of my big inspirations as a blogger and I want my style to be as individual and fun loving as hers.



I also have converted one of my old twitter accounts into my fashion blog twitter account. Go follow me, @KatyFerenczy for updates and random musings.
