The classic Dr Marten shoes are amazing. They come in two different colours; black and cherry red. It's bugging me that the bright patent coloured Dr Martens are becoming stupidly popular; I think they are vile... what's wrong with plain and simple? I do think these shoes can look clown-like if you have quite large feet, but as I'm size 3 I think they will look quite cute. They are £80 which I don't think is a shocking price when they are a comfortable, everyday leather shoe.
I am definitely considering buying a pair of the classic Dr Martens... I just need to decide on black or cherry red?
So I thought my first official post would be a "wish list" one. Everything in this post is clearly from Topshop and I've had my eye on most of it for a while now. I won't go through everything in detail but starting off the Topshop wish list is the Leather Backpack which is £40. I think it is adorable and I love the gold clip lock fastening. I think any black backpack is really versatile so will look cool with pretty much any outfit! The Egyptian Triangle Ring is £7.50 which I think is quite a decent price for Topshop jewellery. I love that it's gold, because I tend to stick to gold jewellery. I find that their rings never fit my tiny fingers so they need to think about making rings for people with small fingers! The Pointed Toe Creepers are by Underground but they are sold at Topshop too. I have had my eye on these creepers for such a long time now, but at the price of £92.75 I haven't been able to find the money to buy the beaut's. Maybe one day... The Speckle Tea Dress is such a bargain. It's only £29 and even though it's quite plain, I think this dress is something everyone should have in their wardrobe. The only reason I haven't bought it yet is because I haven't tried it on and when it comes to dresses, it's essential that I try it on because of sizing and length as I'm a petite 5'1. Topshop also sell this dress as a midi dress for only £5 more which I think is just as lovely, but I think the shorter length will suit my height better. I have been looking for a pair of John Lennon style sunglasses since last summer and Topshop have finally started selling some in their new Spring collection for £16. I am the ultimate thrifter so I'll probably search for a cheaper pair before settling with these ones! Maybe I'll have a look on eBay... Lastly I would like everyone to look and admire this fabulous Biker Jacket. I don't own a leather jacket, which yes I know, is quite a disgrace, and I have decided that this one is perfect. I absolutely love this leather jacket and if it wasn't £150 I would definitely think about buying it.
Okay, so this is my first blog post. My name is Eloise Passey and I live in London. All my friends call me Elly, but to be honest I prefer Eloise now so yeah! I'm 16 and currently in my last year of school studying GCSE's. I take; product design, media, history, child development, Russian and all the core subjects. I'm sick of school and the surroundings so I'm looking forward to moving to college in September when I start A-Levels in which I hope to study fashion/textiles, English literature, media and history.
I've been wanting to make a fashion based blog for a while now, so here we are. I'm not sure how well it will go but we will see! Having a fashion blog has been on a growing hype and I thought I'd join in. I kind of see it as keeping a fashion diary? It took a lot of thought to come up with an interesting title for this blog and also a URL. My URL is basically my first and middle name. I'm not sure how I came up with 'Fashion Therapy' but I kinda just really like it! I also wanted my URL to be 'fashiontherapy' but some loser had already taken that... haha.
I'll be posting mainly about my personal fashion style, music, travel, inspiration and anything that I think could make an interesting post! Enjoy, E x
