If Only: Outfit of the Day 44#

 As the weather becomes increasingly erratic, I find myself really getting into the flow of layering my outfits, both in these stylised outfits and my day-to-day outfits. While the pinning of sagging sleeves would prove a pest after a while, I am sure, I am really into layering silk kimonos beneath warmer knitwear, blazers and outerwear. It’s just so comfy.

If Only: Outfit Of The Day 34#

Is there anything more English than a flat cap? Besides… a Union Jack-printed flat cap, perhaps, but luckily I don’t think such a things exist (except for perhaps in the deepest depths of an Ebay store warehouse in China). I’ll admit, one of the things that I have found to be tricky since cutting my hair, is finding a hat that suits a pixie cut.  I know that hats and short hair can work – plenty of men look amazing in hats, after all, but I definitely find myself much more limited for choice than I am used to. A flat cap, however, works even better with short hair, in my opinion, than long. It’s a hat designed for a pixie cut… and, like I said, I find it weirdly patriotic. However, lets throw in some jewellery, a cute bag, a pop of red lipstick and these beautiful blue floral heels to stop the look from becoming completely androgynous. I’m just not in the mood for going entirely androgynous today.

If Only: Outfit of the Day 32#

Today is all about Grandad trousers… or, more specifically, Grandad culottes! Or maybe that should be ‘Grandma raiding Grandad’s wardrobe with the sewing box’ culottes? I don’t know anymore… I do know one thing, however, and that is that between this garish outfit and my bad hair day (it’s cowlicks galore on the crown of my head this morning!!), this look would be a guaranteed way to send every man in London running and cowering in fear at the very sight of me… perhaps it’s best that this is just an ‘if only’ series!

Honestly, Topshop is, in my opinion, one of those brands that shouldn’t be able to pull off a runway show. I was twelve when they made their fashion week debut, and so I’m pretty much always known Topshop as being a ‘runway brand’ since the age when I really became interested in fashion, and yet still, while child actors Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen and Victoria Beckham – an ex spice girl – have all been bale to establish themselves as, first and foremost, fashion designers, in our minds, Topshop for me is still just a high street store that sells edgy, sometimes questionable, generally affordable and sometimes overpriced items that we all wear. Nevertheless, Topshop’s more ‘high-end’ line: Topshop Unique, is definitely one of the darlings of LFW year after year. I don’t know quite how they do it, but I sure as hell love them even more for it. Therefore, today’s look revolves around a Topshop Unique skirt… roll on SS15’s collection!

Is this a going out outfit? A day wear outfit? I’m not quite sure yet, but I know that I love it, and I would happily wear it day-in, day-out… it just looks so comfy, and yet, throw on a pair of amazing heels, and it’s perfect for a night of dancing wildly… even if replacing slippers with heels does make it a bit of a contradictory statement…

New York Fashion Week: Day 4#

Today was the day that I have been waiting for most eagerly during New York Fashion Week… today was the showing of  Victoria Beckham’s latest collection. Always one of my favourites. And as ever, she did not disappoint. I swear, if I had to limit my dream wardrobe to just three designers, I know already who they would be: Victoria Beckham, The Row and Chloé. So classic, elegant and timeless, all of them.

So here we go.. the best of the day, as usual.

If Only: Outfit of the Day 25#

I think today’s styled outfit is inspired by London’s art galleries, many of which I have today frequented on a grand artistic tour of idea fuel. From the colours, the painterly skirt and the vintage-print blossom top, I’ve mellowed the mass of patterns and brights with Burberry’s beige trench cape; a modern twist on their classic, reliable beige trench that works so well to balance a busy outfit. The boots and crochet are probably considered an unusual choice with the skirt and top, but I think it would work really well.
