Guys guys guys. So I've been anticipating the release of this up and coming fashion label Phidel's debut collection for a while now. They did such an an amazing job at building up towards the release of their collection, utilising social media platforms to expose the captivating photography and videography used to showcase their collections. The minute I heard of Phidel I was captivated.

Phidel was started by a young emerging designer from London. The designs are authentic and to me, represent a generation of people trying to step outside of the box society has a tendency of putting us in. So many young people are trying to start up clothing lines and brands, but I feel as though not all of them have the right mindset and it shows. It's safe to say that the standard of work Phidel has presented, is in line with the renowned names in high end fashion, although it still retains an undergound-esque ambience.

The minimalistic all black/all white themes and the experiments with texture are what intrigued me. A different spin on fashion within the 'Hip-Hop Culture'. Which is a culture that I personally love because of the rawness that it embodies.

This white leather jersey has to be my favourite item from the Resort 13 collection and hopefully will be a purchase. 
Let us pray.
I can't get over how clean/crisp it looks and the leather material creates such a statement that sets it apart from the thousands of baseball jerseys out there. This is why I have chosen it as today's desirable. I for one can't wait to see what else Phidel has in store.

Recent Purchase: Dr Martens 1461 Dupes

Hey Guys!
I recently purchased these dupes of the Dr Martens 1461 shoes, after I came across them in Shoe Zone for only £15! They remind me of the kind of school shoes my Dad used to insist on buying for me in Primary School, you know those Clarks/Brantano shoes. I remember I used to HATE them all because I thought they weren't 'cool', because they weren't the shoes everybody else had. I'm so glad I've gotten rid of that mentality because seeking confirmation from others for what you need to be doing is good for no one.

Enough of that, let's focus on the shoes. I actually love them. The geeky grungy aura that they posses. I will be forever styling them this summer, 'docs' & frilly socks and various other clothing items.  

My exams are pretty much finished and I am so glad! Since I have more time on my hands, my blog updates will be a lot more frequent and I will get some OOTD posts up, yes finally! 

Lastly, I just want to say thank you to all of you who have visited and commented on my blog so far. I was quite surprised to see multiple views from people outside of the UK (Hi!). I love hearing from all of you guys and so if you ever have any questions or even just want to say hi, feel free to tweet me @CharisseeC or comment below! Until next time.

One last thing! I feel like you all need to see these beautiful all white Docs. Just to share this moment with me. Am I the only one that finds these absolutely mesmerising?!
