Taking a city detox

Just before Christmas I made the decision to leave my job in the city and my daily commute in favour of a slower pace of life back in my sleepy home town in the country side. (Oh’ and to also save a LOT of money!) After a year and a half of commuting and trying … Continue reading Taking a city detox

Interning: how to get more out of it than just making tea or photocopying

Whether you decided to not go to university (like me) or you have a degree, the reality in most industries, especially fashion, is that you are going to start your career as an intern. Before I became an intern, that word filled me with dread because in the last few years internships have rightly been … Continue reading Interning: how to get more out of it than just making tea or photocopying

Should feminism have ever become a ‘trend’?

With my blogging hiatus came the lose of blog post inspiration and, as much as there is nothing wrong with hauls and posts that are made up of outfit photos, I love to write and for me there’s just no substance in that.

When the lovely Scarlett invited me to the #bloggersball the other weekend in London, I assumed I would go along with my friend and blogger Sadie to network with other bloggers and meet brands, little did I actually know that I would spend a large amount of my time there on a photoshoot. I honestly wish I … Continue reading The Impromptu Photoshoot with Jody Bell

1 Year of She Wears Stripes- Starting Again (Again)

Although, it's been about a year since I first opened She Wear Stripes and published my first post, but I can't claim that I've actually been blogging for a year due to my recent step away from blogging. One reason for my disappearance from blogging was the fact that I was finishing my course and … Continue reading 1 Year of She Wears Stripes- Starting Again (Again)

See You Later Education

See you later education, and as much as I wish I could say it's been a blast, I would be lying because I've never been so happy to see the back of you. Once again, I'm maybe slightly over dramatising the situation, because education has made up the majority of my life, I don't remember … Continue reading See You Later Education
