Hi my lovelies! So on Saturday I had the pleasure of going to Chelsea to look at a few galleries and I thought I'd share with you some of my favourites. The first one showcased the work of Swiss artist Claudia Comte in an exhibition called NO MELON NO LEMON. I absolutely loved the wooden sculptures on display and the space itself made you feel almost delirious, it was amazing.

The works of Erik Van Lieshout really caught my eye too. Entering the exhibition entitled "I am in heaven", you go through a dark tunnel (it was reminiscent of the scene in one of my favourite films Coraline where she crawls through to the alternate world) and you encounter a film (which I won't spoil for you incase you decide to go yourself!) A lot of his work explored consumerism, censorship, and the current social and political sphere so I'd definitely recommend going to see it if you're in New York or checking out his work online.

Finally, my favourite of all has to be Titus Kaphar's work. His exhibition Drawing the Blinds, examines a forgotten history and the whitewashing of history through his manipulation of what first appears to be classical and canonical imagery. It was so incredibly striking and left me lost for words. 

If you ever happen to be in Chelsea I would most definitely recommend spending the day looking at some of of the 150+ galleries there and then popping over to Chelsea Market to get a bite to eat!

Hey everybody! It has been an incredibly long time since I last posted on the ol bloggy wogg and I have to extend my sincerest apologies! I have been a) super busy and b) considering the fact that is on average around -10 degrees celsius pretty much everyday here in New York, I haven't really been too keen to go outside and take outfit photos! However I thought I would do a lil update post for you guys! So it's my second semester studying here at NYU and I have to say that I feel like I've found my footing a lot more this semester; I'm feeling a lot more settled. I have been absolutely loving the courses I'm taking at the moment and have firmly decided that I'm going to major in Anthropology and minor in History which is really exciting as it feels really great to have a clear picture of where I want to go in life and I feel so much more calm when I think about the future (although it is still very scary to think about life in the real world). What I know, however, is that whatever I do in life, I want it to have some element of creativity. I realised this when  was in the MoMa the other weekend; being surrounded by art is one of my favourite things.

I do have to admit that I miss home a lot, England will always have a special place in my heart, considering the fact that my family and some of my best friends are there, but I'm going home for spring break which is pretty exciting!

I'm currently scouting out some indoor places where I can take outfit posts that are aesthetically pleasing to the eye so watch this space! Also I have a mixtape in the works too!

OUTFIT // GREYSCALE

JACKET TOPSHOP JUMPER AND TROUSERS AMERICAN APPAREL SHOES RUSSEL AND BROMLEY BAG ZARA

Hello my lovelies! I thought I'd share with you a lil outfit post, as it's been an eternity since I last posted one! As they say in Game of Thrones, Winter is coming (I cannot wait till it comes back in Spring by the way), and as the temperature descends, I have been layering up! This jacket from Topshop is probably one of my favourite pieces in my wardrobe at the moment, I haven't taken it off since I bought it, and although it's relatively light, it's still keeps you warm if you layer, layer, layer! Of course, I had to put a turtleneck underneath, and this one from American Apparel did the trick perfectly! 

What are some of your favourite pieces to layer with this AW? Let me know down below!
