Amidst a sombre world outlook, a harrowing time for many, Dries Van Noten's 100th show was the breath of life needed to revive our spirits and kick us into optimism mode again. While trends of power women, fur and stripes on stripes were scattered throughout fashion month, none delivered such a positive note. Collections referred… Continue reading dries van noten: our spark of joy.
Quite frankly, it could be. And tracking the daily lewks doesn't seem to be helping. We know my wardrobe has been uncovered as largely monochrome - blah blah blah - but what I've come to realise, an enlightenment that only hit me two days ago ( and one that makes so much SENSE in my… Continue reading is my wardrobe making me depressed?
On the day I wore ( read: attempted to wear ) my Camille Charriere copycat number, I noticed a little girl on the train unashamedly staring, as inquisitive small people are often known to do. I watched her out my side-eye, wondering, "What do you actually think of this?" Is it too boring and adult?… Continue reading fashion ( and the world ) through the eyes of a child.
A quick note for you before the weekend begins. HAVE YOU SEEN GORMAN'S LATEST COLLABORATION? Sorry for yelling but Liz Payne and Lisa Gorman have smashed this one. What are two of my favourite things? Gorman, and embroidery. It is a multi-coloured dream come true. While Gorman is famed for vibrant prints and patterns (… Continue reading tactile retail therapy.
My post on African fashion has been sitting patiently, just waiting for a new burst of inspiration, ever since I arrived home from Tanzania. It seems so long ago now ( isn't it depressing when such a perfect time of life all of a sudden blurs? ). Amongst many other things over there, the people… Continue reading a love letter to african fashion.
Last night, as I was preparing and planning today's inspiring-enough-for-a-Monday outfit, I realised the sheer lack of colour in my wardrobe and jewellery collection. I've been quite aware of this for some time - I steer towards a more monochrome palette on days when there is little inspiration or creativity; it's an easy go-to, never-fail… Continue reading a distinct lack of colour.
I always find it difficult to settle back in to normal life after time away, especially when that time is spent in an opposite part of the world. Life experiences rarely reflect my own and living conditions differ vastly. But the craziest thing I find is that everyone I meet has a genuine heart, a… Continue reading coming home.
Some days it feels like the world just really doesn't want you around. It pissed on your glorious sunshiney, gym-class, solid outfit morning. And that bitch enjoyed it. Every question is answered with a no, every call for help rejected. All faith is lost in the state government as they steal more and more money… Continue reading when the world says no.
Is it just me, or was today impossibly long, and nowhere near as productive as hoped? I set out the morning with such good intentions of reading all my articles opened, because, learning, finish that assignment that is lingering over my head, and put together an ingenious blog post. Sadly none of this was achieved.… Continue reading a solution for tired eyes.
Now that I'm in a job that doesn't occupy my mind non-stop, at least 8 hours every day ( not including the work-related nightmares / dreams ), I actually have time for Google. We’ve become best buddies. This is a somewhat dangerous thing, and hopefully only occurs when you are in an office with minimal… Continue reading the google of life.
