Whatkarenfound is a documentary blog for one year only of my fashion and lifestyle items I find and buy. I am not a conventional shopper. I find high street and shopping centers/ complexes uninspiring and patronizing! I shop alternatively, Charity Shops, Boot Sales, Markets, Auctions, Antique Centre's, Retro Shops and the good old Jumble sales. This is an experiment to see if what I find inspires my work as a designer and stylist. All content on this blog is created by Karen Savage. Enjoy !

About Me

London, United Kingdom
Karen Savage is a Feminist in the Fashion Industry. A thinker with a heart, who would like to share her Savage world. For over two decades, Karen Savage’s keen sense of ‘now’ and exuberant sense of humour have lead her on a gloriously winding path, questioning everything ‘fashion’ has to offer. From Designer to Stylist, Trend Forecaster to Creative Director, Blogger and Artist - Karen Savage has been there, done that and turned ‘fashion’ on its head and into something new. Karen is outspoken and charming, a self-proclaimed ‘Council Estate Princess’ via Birkenhead. The Independent crowned her the ‘Queen of Tongue n Chic’. Karen first sprung to public consciousness in the early 90s with her own critically-acclaimed fashion label SAVAGE and her controversial slogan-tees. She explores themes of feminism and sustainability in her work. The UK press just couldn't get enough of this ironic designer and everyone from Just 17, The Times to Radio 4s Women’s Hour has interviewed Karen Savage. Karen Savage is a Senior Lecturer at The London College of Fashion, St. Martin's College of Art and The Hong Kong Design Institute. She also freelances as a Creative Director in Print and Licensing.

Club Tropicana – Jump Around ?

Jumps suits, all in ones there not right and I don’t know why I do it to myself. It’s as if each time I buy one I believe this is the one that will perform jump suit magic on me. Boyfriends never like or understand them and I stubbornly won’t listen even if he might be right on this one. I bought this for the bright jade green colour and crazy appliqué pattern and it reminded me of what a lively older lady would wear if she retired to the sun. This piece for me is so Florida mixed with 80s Wham Club Tropicana, where I am sure by the time I retire the drinks won’t be free!

Found and bought in a charity shop in Weighbridge Surrey, very posh round there they know how to charge £8. Listen to me I have been living in planet boot sale for too long. Well I only hope I jump around in this jump suit in spring, if not its going back to the chazzer, not sure about this fuy: (
