Charlotte De Carle 
I love her style, masculine but still elegant and sexy, I think she is gorgeous and so down to earth - one of my favourite models. I also love all her blazers and I'm currently on the search for the perfect one.
If you haven't yet watched the TV show "Dirty Sexy Things" you really should, it's really interesting, funny and all the people on it are beautiful.

Vivienne Westwood
Even though she's in her 70's I think Vivienne Westwood is a huge inspiration, she helped shape the punk era and even now creates beautiful clothes. I love her attitude and what she stands for- good clothing that lasts a long time, unique styles to suit individual people and good old rock 'n' roll.

 Their music reminds me to relax and add a little bit of colour to my day. Music in general has a big impact on my style! Whatever I'm listening to at that moment will affect my mood, which will affect my clothing choice for the day and will generally give me a certain feeling whether it be punky or chilled or upbeat.

Fearne Cotton
I've seen pictures of her in magazines and things and I love everything she wears. Sometimes edgy, sometimes cute and vintage. I think our styles are very similar.

Allison Harvard
Allison has a really cute, kinda old fashioned quirky style. She is truly unique and wears what she finds interesting. Her dresses are lovely, I also like the lace and odd hats that she wears.

Of course there are so many other inspirations out there! I had a lot of trouble picking and choosing but these are some of the people that inspire me. Who and what inspires your style? Why?

welcome to my blog

Hello! and welcome to my blog. I think I should introduce myself first of all...

I'm Anna and I have created this blog to express myself, post my interests, share my thoughts and ideas.
I live in Orkney, an isolated island in the north of Scotland, I hope to one day travel the world, float around and absorb everything that it has to offer. My interests include fashion, music and art. You could probably find me drinking coffee with friends or doing ballet.

My style consists of simple but edgy clothing, occasionally a girly skirt or dress. I love anything unique and special. Like most people I don't have all the money in the world so I shop at highstreet shops such as Topshop and I love little market places. My favourite item of clothing is probably my brown leather jacket or my tutu inspired skirt/shorts and I love my worn out Wranglers boots. Some of my favourite designers are Vivienne Westwood, Marc Jacobs and I love Elie Saab dresses.

I have soooo many ideas on what to post, I'm gonna have loads of fun and I hope you enjoy my blog :) 
(that is to assume that anyone is going to read this).
