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.
There's enough content, labels and inspiring people on sustainable fashion to cover at least 5 posts a day, every day, for years and years. Sadly this isn't my full-time job. Sadly the time to put it all together doesn't exist in my life at the moment. So I settle for a couple of times a month,… Continue reading the sustainers :: mara hoffman.
So it is almost time for me to disappear for a while, breathe some truly fresh air, and experience a completely different culture. Scary that that day has finally approached. After so much planning and revising and organising it is time to just let it all flow. Hop on that plane, climb that mountain, see… Continue reading countdown on.
We haven’t handed one to the men for a while - and that just seems unfair. Tommy Hilfiger has delivered the goods this latest season. So Americana, but so wearable. Filled with patterns of the floral and striped variety, collars, drawstrings, and a good old 80’s spirit ( say yes to the bright primary coloured… Continue reading manspiration :: tommy hilfiger.
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.
Disclosure: never have I won a best dressed award, never do I want to win a best dressed award (these days at least). This isn’t something I’ve previously thought through too much, but after attending yet another event with this all-glamorous award, it got me thinking, ranting, conceptualising. I’d be lying if I denied that… Continue reading reliving :: j.w. anderson.
So far I’ve been pretty good at avoiding the trendy-designer gym wear, and have stuck to my ugly old thangs. The tops that used to be wearable and are now holey and thin - therefore perfect for a workout. Mismatched socks and almost-vintage leggings. Only once have I outlaid some money for Lorna Jane, and… Continue reading want list :: athletica.
Continuing on with the theme ——— a further celebration of the bandanna / neck tie / scarf. The internet knows I love it and refuses to back down, constantly feeding me more images and inspiration. Here is the ultimate mixture of 50’s and 70’s glamour girlhood. She’s classy yet edgy, elegant yet playful. And owns… Continue reading photoshoot :: that neck.
I feel like I am becoming a Thom Browne creation, forced to layer every item I own because of this unbeatable chill. It’s a miracle I am even typing right now, having lost my gloves last winter. Thom Browne is the Frankenstein of the modern day - of course only in an artistic and admirable… Continue reading reliving :: thom browne resort 16.
