Leather shorts look cool with anything; I also want to create a DIY worn out t-shirt with the above quote written on in a messy way.
Fashiontoast blogger, Rumi, has the coolest unique style from a blogger that I've ever seen, and I think it's because of how perfectly she coordinates her clothes to suit her body frame. The only thing I wish she attempted more of is dressing for cold climates, which she has done but her looks have consisted of an oversized coat and an enviable pair of heels.
The two looks on either side of Rumi are from Twenty-Seven Names's a/w 10 collection; I now want a sleeveless shirt. I think both of the looks could be done in a British s/s climate as long as it's not on one of those random heat-wave days.
I've purposely been avoiding posting autumn winter 2010 looks, purely because I've still got the mind of a common person in the sense that I still can't understand why the fashion industry is one season ahead of everyone else it's like they live in a different time zone to us.
Love it or hate it summer is all about flesh and getting the proportion right is key. I'm not naturally a flesh revealing person but it does feel great not having to wear layers of clothing.
The first look is from Margaret Howell's summer lookbook which I really like; I also like the other images in this post, they perfectly encapsulate my ideology of summer.
I won't be posting anything in the next two weeks I have exams! :/
I look forward to being reunited with you all after the next two weeks...keep inspired!
My previous posts on this summers main inspiration on me: here, here and here. :)
Sorry for the double post but I have to post this overdue amazing post:
As you may be aware menswear equally influences my style as does womenswear (obviously)
I love the colours in Massey's a/w collection and the looks; the bottom row of images are my favourite. The image to the very right with the jumpsuit, I would wear with heels and I would roll the sleeves up or wear a big woolly jumper or jacket over it to create a layered effect -the possibilities are endless.
Here's a post I did a while back and I enjoyed doing:
Sound of Music meets Louis Vuitton, or Louis Vuitton meets Sound of Music?
Either way I love the combination and I think Marc Jacobs has done an amazing job in this years autumn winter collection for LV. Jacobs explains how his inspiration was going back to the era when women could still be beautiful and lady-like whilst showing off their figures in a dress.
After doing this post I now want to watch the film and dress like I could be in the Sound of Music.
I can't sleep because I'm in one of those crappy emotional moods so I've decided to be productive and remove documents and images from my laptop. It's turned out to be less tedious than I thought, particular when stumbling across a few gems that I'm contemplating to keep.
