The sun decided to tuck behind some heavy clouds this morning as I made the short walk over to MYKITA. As soon as I scooted through the front door I was greeted by...Read More →
Absolutely in love with bright cobalt blue especially in this case where it’s got a sort of ruffled sea anemone feel. Took these photos a while back when I was in London. Sitting next to the canal, barefoot, but with thousands of pounds worth of luxury dripping from my fingers. It’s a strange life sometimes.
There are some dresses that seem to transcend reality and all sense of normality – pieces that you’d put on and they’d transport you to an entirely different world. Since I first caught glimpse, Mary Katranzou’s architectural and hyperrealist prints have totally had my attention. They are mind blowingly surreal and utterly entrancing.
These dresses are paired down versions of the more abstract shapes that were shown on the catwalk last February. Luckily, there’s a fashion boutique not far from my flat that stocks the originals in all their obscure glory… definitely popping in soon to see them up close. Fingers crossed they will somehow not be as painfully perfect as they look from where I’m sitting right now.
p.s. just incase you needed added convincing (ahem, Anastasia Duck)… the dresses in all their AW11 glory are below. Seriously, these babies are other-worldly and what dreams are made of.
Pounding hail and scorching heat…. the weather currently feels about as fickle as a high school girl before prom. With temperatures planned to creep up to the 30s this week I can’t really fathom wearing anything other than loose silk tops and jersey skirts. I’m currently obsessed with this double layered Ruby Smallbone latte coloured top. Perfect for adding a bit of something special to an otherwise pretty standard outfit and the basis of my summer uniform.
Spent most of Sunday hiding from the rain. Either on a tram, in someone’s window frame or under a floral umbrella. But it was okay because I spent most of Saturday soaking up the sunshine by the river. Also, drank lots of iced coffees and failed to remember that here everything closes on a Sunday. Ah, weekends are so good. Hope everyone enjoyed it.
Oh, if only the web were my personal closet and I could put outfits together like Cher in the opening scene of Clueless the world would be a better place. I’d be rocking each of these outfits respectively over the weekend. I know colour blocked brights, bold stripes, and mashed up prints are all the rage these days – but you know, sometimes a healthy dose of monochromatic dressing feels like what the doctor has ordered. And by doctor I mean his wife (and by doctor I mean the dubious sort that Ross is in Friends*)…
Anyway, so basically I got seriously sucked into the Weekday website recently after spotting this achingly cool cougar t-shirt (hello, Givenchy AW11 anyone?). They’ve got loads of simple basics, which I love, and very sweet accessories that are pretty reasonably priced. I like a pair of sunglasses I can snag for under a 50… that way I don’t have to feel too guilty if I accidentally sit on them. Yumyum.
Hope everyone has a good weekend! x
