My Kind Of Art…. The Art Of Judging…

If you ever see me at a gallery opening or an art show… It is safe to presume I am there for the free sparkling wine and little else, culture to me is the stuff found in yogurt not in art. So my uncultured black heart lit up when I came across this photo exhibition.

Photographer Dougie Wallace, created Harrodsburg 

About the exhibition Harrodsburg is an up-close wealth safari exploring the wildlife that inhabits the super-rich residential and retail district of Knightsbridge and Chelsea. The project is a powerful, timely and stark exposé of the emergence of an ultra-affluent elite who have turned London into a global reserve currency, telling the story of glut, greed and the widening wealth gap playing out on the streets of a city that is going through a period of unprecedented social change.”

David has a way of capturing the absurd and un-posed moment’s which makes this exhibition honest and slightly risqué.

Here are just a handful of the pictures – For the entire collection head to http://www.harrodsburg.co.uk you can also purchase limited edition prints. If in the UK the exhibition will take place in October – Head to website for more details.

I Can’t Even Deal…

File this under fucking ugly trends that are coming back, which should be sent to hell. The same place the Kardashians souls happen to be… Ladies and Gents… I’m talking about the 90’s throwback that is *insert drum roll for effect* The Goth-y, Alternative, Tattoo – Like Chocker… Or as I like to call it… “Get that fucking thing of your neck you troll”

The New Must Do Pose On Instagram and Tumblr

The selfie is sooo yesterday, the beflie can only be done if you are part of the Kardashian Klan. The newest pose that will give you instant gratification from complete strangers, as they hit the like button over and over again is…. The “Behindfie” yes the title is a work in progress, but it is one pose that will garner you the right kind off attention.

Outfit Attire For Working At Home… Yes It Includes No Pants

Every so often one has to work from home – This allows the creative juices to flow without the distractions of telephones, people asking questions or just having a good gossip with your work colleges!Clare GeevesWorking from home means over sized Cheap Monday Tee from my new online obsession Sivvi with oversized glasses and of course a bowtie for colour. Who said not wearing pants while working wasn’t considered fashion…

#NippleGoals and Culottes

Clare Look 1 copy

This season there are two things that are making a comeback – Free the nipple and culottes. Seeing as I own one bra (that my mum bought me when I was 18) this was a trend I was already accidentally rocking. As for culottes plenty has to be said for these tailored, masculine yet still feminine pants.

Outfit Close Up Pants and iPhone Cover

 One of my favourite brands Finders Keepers has created this seasons must have culottes (available next day delivery in UAE thanks to Sivvi – The perfect addition to your wardrobe as you can mix and match with different types of tee’s – Taking this look from Office to night time with a hint of cleavage and a pair of neon heels.

Clare Close Up Shoes C.U.N.TNever to be a shrinking violet – Every so often my C.U.N.T shoes make an appearance… Damn it feels good to be a gangsta! Though these babies aren’t available any more you can find equally as offensive flats here

 

 

Emoji’s are now in fashion…. This trend ain’t going anywhere…

The newest trend to make me feel older then I really am is the “Wear your emoji” from jewellery now to shoes. As much as I hate this trend I am in LOVE with these tongue in cheek flats from Miami-based Del Toro. Though the asking price is $340 *I balk at spending 20 AED on a bottle of wine* these shoes are tres adorbs – Though I will wait for the trend to hit the high street market and wait till I can get the same pair for £10 at Primark…. Just saying…. If you fancy yourself a big spender you can check them out here.
