Model: Coco Rocha
Photographer: Sølve Sundsbø
Found: The Fashion Spot
I have been researching a lot of Sølve Sundsbø's work lately, and I will absolutely be looking out for him in future editorials. His work has no thematic or stylistic continuity, aside from its consistent vibrancy and freshness. He is officially added to my list of reasons that Norway is amazing.

What I find most intriguing about the work of Canadian duo Powerhaus is the unexpected amalgamation of luxe, spindly body decoration and pared down stylistic austerity. It's probably a well thought-out ruse to make their jewellery seem essential, and it has worked.

I've been feeling quite run down and grumpy lately, which, added to the awful weather, have made slouchy, knitted type creations very appealing. Clothes that aren't necessarily designed to flatter a figure, but encourage comfortable, relaxed burrowing and hibernation in times of sudden chill or attacks of fatigue.
In other news, a number of different factors (uniform allowance, birthday money, security deposit refund, discount store card) are about to culminate in a ridiculous shopping spree, and when I finally have a day off I am going to make sure I document all of my new treasures before I wear them to death. So that my boss would let me buy an entirely black uniform, I promised her that I would go into work tomorrow pretty much as Alice in Wonderland, which should be very interesting...

I think the way clothes are worn is far more important than the clothes themselves. This is why, for example, someone like Victoria Beckham always looks dreadful, even though she has more money than she could ever spend. It's also why I love to read street style blogs, which focus on personal interpretations of fashion over brands and labels. Here are two examples of very simple looks made excellent when worn with a striking attitude:
