Hey All,

I’ve waited long enough to get a pair and having finally chosen and ordered a pair they arrived last week, my flat slipper shoes. They couldn’t be more OTT if they had heels. Pony skin: check; Leopard print: check; all over spike studs, check, check check. I got them on line at Sheinside.com long with the leather trim blazer.

Keeping the outfit to a black/fawn colour pallet I carried this Kurt Geiger Perspex XL Pouch, it has a wrist strap and the inside purse is attached to the outside at the seams. It reminds me of that 70′s furniture, made from thick brown glass and highly polished chrome, nicely retro.

Stripes have this really wicked way of making a look seem more bright and vibrant even if they’re black and white stripes. Monochrome can look a bit uniform like, but add stripes, leather (or pleather) and platform boots and monochrome becomes more chilled out. The sleeveless Primark blouse has a clever double collar detail, the underneath collar is black to match the placket (the bit where the buttons go) and the top collar is white to march the shirt and tie-in the whole piece. Without the second white collar, the black detail would look a little detached and awkward.

The River Island leather-look leggings are the easy to wear and the Korky’s Lita-style boots are really high but really easy to wear.

I have a secret crush on Sid Vicious… I was watching his performance of My Way (originally by Frank Sinatra) on Youtube last week. I may well be slightly biased but, his outfit in it is pretty darn perfect; white tuxedo jacket, black boots, black leather trousers, spiked hair and, most significantly a white garter. I went straight to Debenhams and bought one. I sewed the long piece of ribbon to it; I wanted this one to be as similar to the one Sid Vicious wore.

If you haven’t seen the video I’ve posted it below.

Elvis Presley is a God. It’s official, no one can pull of head to toe leather like this man, not even Batman! In my own little way I’m trying emulate him by, erm, dressing head to, well, ankle in leather. The jacket done up looks a bit wrong but I reckon it looks a better open with a slouchy grey tee and some faux suede boots to match.
