The Jack Wills Autumn Term Handbook

September 29, 2008

I have recently fallen in love with Jack Wills.
Here are just a few of my favourite items, starting with the grey cable knit jumper, something I’m coveting this winter-

I really really want this silk lined scarf!

Finally, the thing I want most- the Appleford Blazer.

Lunacy Boutique

September 25, 2008

I came across the shop Lunacy Boutique today, via an interview in Indie Quarter blog with one of the owners, Rebecca Bouge. I like her openness, the pink photos and her motto’s, so of course I went straight to the shop!

“we prefer Marmite clothes” (either you love it or hate it but at least it’s a better reaction that 20 people saying you look okay), “mediocrity is boring and bland!”

The first thing I saw were silver and gold bags in the shape of butterflies and stars, and I was sold, I love this shop!

Other things I love include a gorgeous blue dress, and a patent skull embossed bag.

They also sell Miso Pretty. Perfect.

New Boots!

September 21, 2008

Happy first day of Autumn! So the first thing I did after I got back was shopping! I only meant to go look at hairdye and buy soap, but I wandered into TKMax, and fell hard for these boots, by Bronx.

Totally inspired by bloggers such as Elenita, and Karla, I love the chunky curved heel and the lace up bit at the top. They are similar to a pair of boots I bought from Shellys a couple of years ago, but they had a wedge heel and more of a platform at the front. Sadly, they were not very well made and the sole came away from the heel at the back, so I had to get rid.

Anyway, I am in much love with these, although I wore them to the cinema last night (saw Tropic Thunder, so funny!) and they are not the most comfy. But I’m hoping I’ll get used to them!

There’s one opening round the corner from where I work. I’m going to have to walk past it every day.

How I am ever going to resist?

Dazed & Confused inspiration

September 13, 2008

Splashes of yellow. Black clothes and colourful make up. Super-shockingly-bright eyes. Poofy hair.

Inspiration – Kate Lanphear

September 8, 2008

Kate Lanphear works for US Elle, but I think her personal style is far more inspirational than anything that is in the magazine. She has inspired my recent love for all things black and grey. I used to think that I should try and wear more colours, or that dressing all in black was too boring, even though it is a colour that I have always been drawn to.

But Kate has shown me that you can avoid all colour, and still stand out and look stylish! It’s just all in the details, and the textures. And those studded Balenciaga sandals that she wears!

This will be my last post for a while as I am jetting off for 9 days in the sun (hopefully) tomorrow! See you when I get back. xx
