If Only: Outfit of the Day 46#

I’m a few years behind everyone else, I know, but today I came across the ‘No More Page Three‘ campaign. For those of you who are unaware, Page Three is a controversial daily feature in The Sun newspaper, each day printing a photograph of a topless glamour model across the entire page. It’s something that I have never understood, especially in this day and age. Surely we should have moved forwards by now? Though I think such a campaign should be weary not to inadvertently rouse the pro-page3 squad into action to save their beloved daily… well, it’s basically soft porn, really, isn’t it? Let’s face it, there is no other reason to pose topless shots in a newspaper than for men to gawp at and teenage boys to… hide in their bed sheets. They are not artistically shot, and so cannot be described as art, naked models means that they cannot be classed as fashion, there is not cultural positive to them… I see no place for them within any newspaper.

I’m getting carried away… my point is, what better way to wear a campaign t-shirt than with a leather skirt and chunky shoes? Yes, that was my point, honest.

If Only: Outfit of the Day 45#

While this look started with the skirt, it’s fair to say that it really ended up revolving around the beautiful amethyst necklace. I’m such a sucker for gemstone jewellery, in all honesty… apparently to the extent that I will happily colour match an entire outfit to suit.

If Only: Outfit Of The Day 39#

It’d be wrong for me to post this without giving a shout out to my lovely flatmate for this one. Being from Spain, she always survives England’s pitiful excuse for a summer (especially now, on the brink of a new season), with skinny jeans and the cosiest looking jumpers that are just a size or two too big. It’s a look that we all reach for at the time of year, but whereas I’ve always stuck mostly to dark jewel tones (but for one regrettable orange jumper), she knows how to bring summer cheer to a sluggish day. Honestly, while I’m living here, you’ll be seeing a lot of influence from both of my two flatmates creeping into my style. The turban, however, that’s all down to the mystery stranger on Brick Lane.

London Fashion Week: Day 1#

 Day one of London fashion week.. is it me, or were there a substantial number of raincoats and PVC ponchos featuring on the runway today? Clearly everyone is, as ever, oh so optimistic as to the weather forecast for dear old England… nothing ever changes. Who says that fashion has no regards for practicality, huh?

If Only: Outfit of the Day 33#

Maybe it’s because it’s September, maybe because it’s school season, and I suddenly find myself once again wondering whether I am invisible to anyone under the age of sixteen as children leave school on their scooters, ramming the front wheel into my ankle, running their bikes over my toes, headbutting me in the thigh, their screeches of laughter and shouts to each other ringing through my ears, disturbing what was just a week ago a very peaceful route through the quiet residential streets of my neighbourhood. Maybe it’s the first crisp, falling leaves of autumn, but there is definitely an element of back-to-school chic intertwined with an autumnal colour scheme for today’s look. Slightly-clashing patterns, block colours, lashings of accessories and a hit of grown up lace lingerie peaking through a shirt… yes.. I like this one very much.

New York Fashion Week: Day 7#

It’s the final day of NY fashion week! Tomorrow, the big-eyed gaze of the fashion-mad population will turn their attention to London, but as for NYC.. things definitely ended on a high! Though I have to end on a weirdly geeky note.. as much as I love Marc Jacobs’ new collection, there is just something about his designs that reminds me of this… I blame the recent London publicity stunts regarding the new series last month.

New York Fashion Week: Day 6#

I have to admit… today’s shows left me feeling a bit cold. I think disappointed is probably the more accurate word, to be fair, but let’s go with cold. The lines that struck me as beautiful and just to my tastes, equally gave me a horrible sense of deja vu, a certainty that I have seen it all before, and that’s always disappointing during fashion week… still, we did see some beautiful creations, all the same.
