Cape Update!





I think my hunt for the perfect cape might finally be over. Last night I purchased this beauty from Nasty Gal Vintage (for probably a little bit too much money but it's still at least 60% cheaper than the other capes I've been dreaming about). Super excited about it arriving! NOT excited about the customs duties I'll probably have to pay on arrival. I've already matched it to at least three pairs of shoes that I own, now just need a cute arm-crook bag/servant to deal with all of my things when I'm wearing it. They have lots of edgy vintage clothes on the website, I recommend you take a look.

Couture: Steven Meisel

Recently my friend Sophie threw a party, and another friend Christiana and I decided it would be an excellent idea to stuff a fluffy towel up her dress and pretend she was pregnant all night, whilst behaving very badly. She looked fabulous! Essentially, there are few things chicer than a beautifully dressed pregnant woman, fake or otherwise (fake is bound to provide a neater bump). Something Meisel demonstrates here with aplomb.

Ridiculous, anonymous party clothes are exactly what I need in my life right now.

Best Behaviour








Although I sometimes go through phases whereby I wear things that vaguely show my figure, I mostly love clothes that look like they don't fit, but are actually skillfully sculpted and draped. Danish designers Best Behaviour are the best example of this that I have found for a long time (I HATE the hats and shoes but they are easy to ignore amidst such excellent layering).

Rebecca Turbow





It started with two pairs of woolly children's Marks and Spencer schooltights and ended with a visit to the Rebecca Turbow website. I am finally ready to stop wearing black everyday, and embrace something that, though not necessarily more cheerful, is definitely a step towards a brighter disposition.

Carine Roitfeld











I'm sure this goes without saying, but I LOVE her.
