a peek at the future?
Now, I know that most of you reading this blog don't actually know me... in real life. If you did, however, you might know that one of my all time favourite stores is Urban Outfitters. As much as my dreams might be made of Marni and Minimarket, the fact of the matter is that a student (and errr... recently post-student) budget wont get you too far there. Today, when I viewed the Urban Outfitters Spring 2011 collection, I was reminded of just why I have adored the brand for so many years. It has, much to my admiration, grown up right alongside me. When I was in university and wanted to get quirky graphic printed t-shirts they had them in the bucket loads. Now that I've moved out of that stage, well just about, I've started to discover their boutique brands: tba, Mink Pink, Iro, and Carin Wester. They are beautifully made and seriously covetable. Not as affordable as the mainline collection but the quality and craftsmanship clearly show why...
Ever since seeing the Prada Spring 2011 show I've been on the look out for the perfect pair of flat packed wedges. Do you know the ones? They look a bit like you've superglued a brick to the bottom of your foot on purpose. I'm guessing some of you might be scratching your head right about now and wondering what I'm talking about. But trust me on this one, they are awesome, and Urban Outfitters are going to be stocking an adorable little yellow pair in the Spring by One Language. Elbows at the ready anyone?
p.s. please excuse the slightly dodge wobbly camera work in the video... it's a new little endeavour and I'm still getting the hang of it.
