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.

 More back-to-school influences, I think… I swear, it’s not intentional. As for the bright yellow lingerie… I love a pop of colour! Too much? No, I don’t think so, but feel free to disagree. After all, it’s only an outfit of my imagination, anyway.

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.

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.

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!
