Take a Bow at the Tower of London

Well, this is it: the last of my England photos. These are from my last days in London when I visited the Tower of London and went on one last shopping excursion and picked up this sheer blouse with a bow pattern from Next. This shirt combines two of my current favorite fashion trends (bows and sheer fabrics) so I was pretty thrilled to find it. And even though the Tower was just as overpriced and crowded as I remembered it, it’s still one of my all time favorite haunts in England. So it was a pretty good end to the trip. Now I actually have to start writing my dissertation. Yikes.

Today I decided to postpone actually doing work by fiddling around online for an obscene amount of time and I came across this little story and video from the Times about a roundtable discussion between several rising designers about the challenges and rewards of the upcoming Fashion Week. I found it interesting and wanted to share.
