New Acne sunnies! My boyfriend says they make me look like Elton John but I’m not going to let that ruin it for me. What do boys know anyway!
Living in this coat forever as it’s the warmest thing I own. I’ve been on a the lookout for another one for some time but I should make myself one, maybe the navy leather coat from AW12.
I’ll be Instagramming from the ArtRebels account today for their Tuesday takeover, so find me over there :)
I had that song in my head all day yesterday, and it seemed kind of appropriate for the title here, although I’m not selling my body to the night or anything! The Nicholas Kirkwood sample sale is coming up next week and I was reminded of these beauties that I came away with last year. They’ve only made one appearance on the blog and maybe are used more for swooning than for wearing, which I’m aiming to change. Maybe I’ll be more sensible this year and only buy a pair if I’ll genuinely live in them, like this top and skirt that are on constant wardrobe rotation at the moment.
Super exciting week with the opening of Bengt‘s pop up shop at Somerset House! I know it’s a Londoner’s tradition to head down to the outdoor skate rink at this time of year, so make sure you stop by the pop up shop where you’ll find accessories and clothes from my AW12 collection. It will be open until the 6th of January so there’s plenty of time to check it out. I would love to know your favourite pieces from the collection, so when you visit make sure to tweet or instagram me!
Most of my eBay trawling has to be under the name ‘Ann Demeulemeester’ (of course!), the sheer volume of pieces you can find internationally, and sold for a fraction of the price; even often cheaper than the equivalent you would buy new in Zara. My most recent find was this silk/linen mix blazer; I’ve been looking for a thicker, longer jacket for winter and this is perfect! I’ve also been dying to pair this shirt with some Ann D, as I wanted so many of the dip dye pieces from her last collection, but they’re always such a high price compared to the normal silk pieces. Maybe eBay will yield some of that soon too!

Wearing my new Margiela for H&M boots! I’m so happy with them, and I have to say the quality is not at all far off my other Margiela shoes, which was my only worry when first hearing about the collab. I love how weird they look from a distance, like I’m walking on tiptoes!

Obsessed with chunky necklaces as of late, I love the not-so-polished feel of this one by LA label ‘Luv AJ’. When you look at it up close, you can see all the work that’s gone into it and it’s so much more beautiful because of that.
Another it’s-pouring-down-with-rain-what-do-I-wear kind of day! It seems in this situation I just pile things on, until there’s nothing left in my wardrobe. So, other than the family reunion on my body – I have this new clutch c/o Hoss Intropia, that I love, it has all the textures I could want in one thing; paired with this super soft cashmere scarf by Ahilya, who’s a happy new discovery for me.
Are you guys looking forward to MMM x H&M tomorrow? I feel like there’s so much more I want as the days get closer, really not looking forward to those queues though!

My hands have been pretty full the last couple of weeks with this little guy; his name is Kobi and he’s a 10 week old Siberian Husky pup! He was majorly distracted in these pictures by a dog chasing a ball across the park, but I’m sure he’ll be appearing on here a lot more often now.
I’ve been falling hard for Yang Li recently, the boyish up-and-down, long and folded shape is everything I want to be wearing right now. When I saw the SS13 look book on Dazed a month back, I knew it was going to end up here. In the meantime I’m going to keep drooling over the insanely good AW12 on The LN-CC!
