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.

Hey All,

It’s windy. No. Wait. It’s raining. No. Wait. It’s really sunny! No. Wait… it’s raining again.

and so on…

It’s raining in my heart, more like. I want to wear my summer wardrobe, now. Well with fingers crossed for more sun less drizzle, i stepped out in these poppy-print palazzo pants and sheer feather-print top. Was cold but worth it!
