As Fashion Revolution Day has just passed for another year, it seemed apt to launch a series that has been in the works for a while, back and forth in my mind. The nuts and bolts haven't sorted themselves out completely yet, but we will get there - the point right now is to get… Continue reading the sustainers :: an intro.
Child star turned bad turned incredible. Basically sums up the life of my old favourite, and muse, Drew Barrymore. I did find it quite strange in my younger years that she had a boy's name, but she proved she could kick some serious butt in Never Been Kissed (after living every teen girl's nightmare) and Charlie's Angels (I've… Continue reading musings :: drew barrymore.
I HAVE THE MOST INCREDIBLE RESPECT FOR RAF SIMONS. My iphone finally autocorrected something useful, his name converted to Rad, which is actually quite appropriate. I already discussed my admiration the other day, but not until you go inside his thoughts and processes and everyday do you realise the extreme talent and love that goes… Continue reading raf and i.
Fall 2014 was clearly a great season for Raf Simons. Actually life seems quite grand as Raf, and I think my belief will be fully proven when I finally see Dior and I this week. Oh the excitement - I won't be able to sleep on Tuesday night because my brain will be brimming with… Continue reading manspiration :: raf simons.
I've already remarked in the past how the Swedes are infallibly cool, all that grunge, alternativeness and envy-spiking tans. They've got the art of natural down pat, and design skills galore. There is definitely a stat out there about how the crazy weather and dark nights lead to insane creativity and inspiration in Scandinavia (even… Continue reading swedish for a day.
Work-from-home day meant literally looking like I just woke up - unfortunately I wasn't the glamorous natural beauty that all the mags love to celebrate. Thankfully I wasn't expecting that, had too much experience with it already. Fresh(ish) and bare faced, ripped denim shorts, getting down to my work party of one. I have a… Continue reading got the brights.
Oh yes, I do love a beautiful Italian brand, especially when the wings are spread. When I studied Italian in high school I would scope out Vogue Italia wherever I could, and sit there attempting to translate. Just a paragraph would take an age - I do love a challenge. My love for Prada continues… Continue reading reliving :: prada ss.
If I had only one wish from a genie I would ask for the endless summer, so my fingers and toes would never know the cold - be protected from it forever. Because I don't like my chances of finding an antique genie bottle, I have a slightly more feasible plan. Time to invest in… Continue reading want list :: some warmth.
Did you drown yourself in chocolate already? Fortunately, or unfortunately, I am one of those strange types who fell of the chocolate craze band wagon years ago. My health kicks rid my diet of the sweet stuff, but there are still zero pangs of remorse. I get my "healthy" lot of chocolate every Christmas and… Continue reading inspiration wall :: apr.
This is how I use my weekends and holidays - outfit experimentation. Time to test the waters with new combos, new pieces, go crazy, because if you can't wear it now, then when can you? Today was my accidentally-on-purpose foray into the "I woke up like this" / pyjama look that has been infiltrating the… Continue reading anatomy of :: i woke up like this.
