No no, don’t worry. I haven’t fallen into some forgotten ditch. I’m still alive and kicking, just taking a much needed break from the online world. I think it’s been about three weeks since my last blog post. Quite possibly the longest blogging break I’ve taken since starting up this baby. I promise I haven’t forgotten about you. I went on holiday to Sweden and then to the UK and, I’ve got to say, that ditching my DSLR and forgetting about outfit shots was seriously therapeutic. Do you ever just feel like you need a break from the online world?
Anyway, let’s ignore my bad blogging techniques and instead focus on the beauty that is this pink leather biker jacket by the incredibly talented Charlie May. It’s from her SS12 collection; I fell in love with it as soon as I laid eyes on it. Charlie was kind enough to custom make this one for me and, ever since receiving it, I’ve been wearing it non-stop. It’s the perfect cropped shape and made from the softest leather. I love the zip detailing at the wrists and the edgy little studs on the collar. I feel so pleased to have such a beautiful piece of Charlie May to call mine. Thank you so much Charlie.
I don’t know how it is where you are, but Zurich is suffering from schizophrenic weather conditions. It’s freezing cold and stormy with random infusions of the off warm day. I feel like spring hasn’t come yet. As a sun worshiper this has all left me feeling rather blue. To combat the dreary feeling I decided to paint my nails in a rainbow of bright shades. If you’re in a place with rubbish weather, I suggest you do the same.
Tomorrow I’m off to Sweden and then to England. See you there. xx
I’ve been dreaming about sporty sneakers for a while now. It took me ages to decide which sort of pair to go for. There are loads of awesome variations out at the moment. With lots of websites offering the ability to customize the colour scheme the options are endless. Feeling slightly overwhelmed by the sea of choices I decided to go for something classic and simple. Behold. The New Balance 420 in navy. I love the old school shape, it feels like something my dad would have worn back in the 70s. These shoes took on a mighty undertaking. Not much can tear me away from my Converse but these have done the trick. They are permanently glued to my feet now.
p.s. the winner of the YSL giveaway is Lisette! Congratulations.
J.W. Anderson for Versace is an odd pairing. The two houses couldn’t be anymore diverse; Anderson champions an androgynous look while Donatella reigns as the queen of clingy. The two came together last night though to debut the new resort 2014 collection and the outcome has left me confused. The women’s collection was fine but exactly what you’d expect: lots of tight black dresses and few pops of standout colour. The men’s designs, however, are nothing short of atrocious. Zebra print jeans, a bodycon dress, a white fuzzy cropped top plus a black and white geometric outfit with what looks like a one shouldered swimsuit. What were they thinking? Please, feel free to tell me if I’ve just completely missed the sartorial boat on this one but I’d rather hope to never see a man wearing any of these looks. I know Anderson likes to push the boundaries of men’s fashion but, to me, this just looks cheap.
So tell me boys, will any of you be rushing out to buy this collaboration on June 15th?
