Sunset Prints and Shades

It was a lovely 23 degress yesterday as I left out to attend the 'Music Potential' event at the 'Oh Velvet' club on Birmingham's infamous 'Broad street'. I knew that I wanted to wear something nice but I did not want to wear any sky scraper heels.

To compliment my sublimation print dress from Zara, I chose to wear these gold low block heeled Zara sandals, that were very comfortable but still very chic and suitable for an evening event and at £19 in the sale worth every penny!

I pulled the outfit together with a gold chained bag from Urban Outfitters, a chunky necklace from Aldo and finally my fabulous Aviators and a wild fro (of course).

The last Goodbye - LCF Graduation style

OMG! I Shara Johnson am officially a graduate of the London College of Fashion. I cannot believe that time has flown by so quickly, I remember when I first started uni and looking down at the expiration date on my student ID, seeing June 2014 and thinking pffff thats ages away, and now its come and gone! (sighs)

It really was a great day, seeing everyone in their caps and gowns, LCF style of course, everyone had their own unique take on how they styled themselves for the big day. I myself wanted to wear something classic that would carry off the robe nicely that still had me written all over it. I opted for this gorgeous bandage French Connection dress that emphasises the curves and paired it with these beautiful green black and yellow shoes (Jamaican colours obviously) to give the outfit a burst of colour. The bracelet and ring ties it all together, and finally the last touch of my cap and gown (which made me feel very regal might I add lol).

It was so emotional! Even though its been a whirl wind 5 years, I am seriously going to miss being surrounded by creatives who are crazy about fashion design, who get excited by fabrics and the sewing machine. It's been a great journey and I am ready for the next chapter of my fashion life to begin. So with that being said, LCF this is goodbye!, thank you for all you have taught me, it's been real. xx :)

Write about your future - In Style!

Now that I've finished university, there are a plethora of things I would like to do, the only problem is half the time my brain gets so filled up with ideas I don't know where to start! I thought doing a to do list would help but I hate boring to do lists on scrap bits of paper, so to help me get inspired I found these fabulous books from Urban Outfitters to help me plan my future activities and aspirations in style!


The first book I came across was 'Shit happens so get over it', the title alone grabs your attention and the contents does not disappoint. If you've had a bad week or feeling a little disheartened on your way to success, this book is filled with encouraging and inspirational quotes from famous people who have had their fair share of struggles on their way. This book is definitely for you if you need a swift kick to remind you that the road to success is not always easy - but worth it.

My Future in list - The LISTOGRAPHY Book

From the moment I opened this book I knew it was a winner. It literally has a question per page and a list for everything such as: List all the countries you would like visit, recipes to try, habits to break, things you aspire to be fearless at (etc), This book makes you think about your life, and want to try things you didn't even consider...just buy the book lol you'll love it!


The Notebook

Last but by no means least there is the trustee note book. To be honest on the inside its just like any other notepad. However the outside is cutesy and pretty with the butterfly patterns all over it , which inspires me to write in it. I'm a typical creative in that sense, if my notebook looks pretty I will look forward to writing in it.

In conclusion what I am trying to say is planning and writing things down doesn't have to be boring at all, take a mundane routine like making to do lists and make it interesting!

Here goes: The Intro to Shara

Hiiiii Everyone,

Let me start by introducing myself, I'm Shara, 23, I'm a fashion designer, a freelance fashion writer and I love colour, everything fashion and big Afros. Moving to London at the age of 18 to study at the London College of fashion, my life for the past five years has been full of exciting new experiences, struggles, challenges, opportunities and good times. Most of all its been amazing! The open mike nights, the parks, the little restaurants, the markets, fabric shops, haberdasheries famous places like 'Bricklane' and 'Portabello road' and of course...the fashion! Moving to London as a student really has made me the person I am today.

I will also be blogging about fashion related events I go to, inspirational places I visit, or just general items that I've bought. The world is my oyster!
