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.

I’m not sure that scrumping a vintage gentleman’s dressing gown is a brilliant idea but I gave it a go. Kicking leaves is also great fun in one, especially when you know there are no ‘surprises’ underneath the leaves waiting to catch you out and ruin your outfit.

Channelling 70’s groupie chic in vintage fur, hot pants and gold lamé. I love looking at old pictures of the Rolling Stones 1st ladies and their dishevelled-glamour look. Anita Pallenberg is rock chic perfection. Here I’m wearing a charity shop find, this early 70’s fur and leather short jacket, teamed with some lace leggings and short hot pants. As much as the lace leggings will keep me chilly the vintage fur will keep me warm.
