In the English countryside at the moment enjoying some R&R before lots of buyers meetings begin to take place next week. I still have so many pictures from the show to share with you that I will start to put up soon, I promise! Right now I’m enjoying taking little 7 month old Kobi out for long walks and knowing that a large chunk of the work is done. :)
Despite living the last week in black jeans and a tshirt due to walking the dog or cutting out hides of leather on my hands and knees, it feels good to dress up in nice things at the weekend. I’ve been wearing my new boots at every available opportunity, their first outing being around my neighbourhood to buy a tin of beans from the corner shop. I’m not sure if Riccardo Tisci designed these boots with that job in mind but live in them, I shall.
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!
