I tend to think of wearing all black as a guilty pleasure, so easy to throw on anything and leave it to the texture to do the talking. This has been my favourite look as of late, just chop and change the accessories. I never thought myself a skater skirt type, but after discovering this shape looks so perfect under any/all chunky jumpers, I was convinced.
This Neil Barrett calf hair beauty has possibly been my favourite buys of the season, after falling hard for it in Malta (after seeing friend Anna of Completed Works in the same) it consumed me and I “had to have it”, even attempting to get it shipped to Malta – who knew that most shopping sites don’t even ship there… So I sat on my hands until we were back on home turf. Finally rewarded and it is possibly the perfect sweater, neoprene like arms and soft hair, turns any drab black outfit into something great.
Basic studio wear, catching a coffee with Shini on Broadway Market; I say catching because the wind was so fierce, we were fighting to keep our hair on! and most of these pictures I was unidentifiable until I pinched her beanie and reclaimed my identity. I’ve been super busy in the studio working on AW14 as well as finishing off SS14 production, before leaving for Devon next week. SO excited for the holidays! I’m doing a pre Christmas sample sale today at The Trampery with many other amazing London designers, I hope you guys drop by!

Or more, ostrich printed cows leather. Wearing again, but in more detail, a favourite new wardobe addition from my own AW13; the ostrich biker jacket. Feeling more and more right that this image that’s been making the internet rounds is the gospel truth on the matter. Wearing with a pretty unusual jumper from fast becoming favourite Cedric Charlier. I was mistaken to be wearing a 90s-esque choker throughout the day when wearing under jackets and coats, which is no bad thing. Channeling my adolescent gothhood as it were. On the other end of the scale accompanying with high end accessories, Givenchy-bag-turned-clutch and black suede and gold beauty from Larsson & Jennings. Life is also better with a watch it would seem. Off to draw a new cartoon..

From white to black and back and vice versa; that’s the way it goes on this blog, except the introduction of a more colourful piece, unusual for me. My wardrobe is looking a little brighter with this ray of winter cosyness sandwiched in the middle. As for the shoes, I know I’ve jumped on the Nike bandwagon a little late (it’s never too late!), but ever since ordering these beauties they have not left my feet. Fashion flats all the way! Or rather, shoes that allow me to run around all day and do my job all the way!

Sometimes a photo perfectly captures a mood or a feeling; going through my mountains of holiday photos from last week (I’ve currently whittled it down to a select 100..) this one stood out as a perfect memory. I’ve been getting back on track with a mountain of work and orders (thank you!) this week, whilst my brain is still in Malta mode. I’ve officially got the travel bug and whilst autumn is my favourite season here, and knits and leathers have me feeling much more in my element than say, a bikini; I can’t help but think about when my next adventure might be and if it involves more hot weather, rooftop pools and turquoise stretching coastlines.
I moved my sample sale online this week so make sure you check it out for SS13 up to 80% off!

On our first evening out in Malta, dressed in this new heavy silk top from COS that I knew was totally impractical when buying, but it seemed like the perfect minimal evening piece. Equally so with this Bracher Emden laser clutch, bright white and just as pristine, I think it was made for this outfit, or any all white ensemble.

Walking around Marsaxloxx, in the south eastern part of Malta, around sunset after eating the biggest Maltese Sunday lunch. Wearing an easy holiday dress I picked up from Zara before travelling, and the Vagabond sandals I couldn’t live without all summer.

More delving’s into pinstripe; sorry I’m not sorry, etc.. although waring the same coat twice is hardly a crime, but so much love, for so much pinstripe could be. I am not so secretly heavily crushing on the Stella plaid which I may well move onto next. You know when you have dreams about THAT coat that it’s time to do something about it. Not that a white cashmere heavily price tagged coat is making any sense right now, perhaps the knitwear could. Perhaps I love it more as it seems like the only print that has escaped being copied on the high street to deaths door and back. Watch this space I suppose.

So here I am, after my one week hiatus of being bunged up in bed with the flu; I am thankfully now on the mend and find myself in Devon for a holiday! Pretty excited about my month of travel ahead planned and finding fresh outfits to wear from one limited suitcase shared with le boyfriend. Thank fully I’ve packed many layering pieces that fold away into nothing, such as this lace lingerie style dress.
My mum is pretty convinced I am walking around in my underwear the whole time, which I’m sure will be a thought shared by many who aren’t aware of Louis Vuitton AW13, Birkenstocks being in and many of the other in-jokes fashion are having at the moment.. Otherwise happy to have my heavy tread Stella’s with me for some countryside roaming.
It’s been a long time since I wore anything with a logo emblazoned across the front of it, but I instantly fell in love with the shape of this oversized sweatshirt by Acne, practising what I preach, you know? It’s also perfect for wind shielding, biking around East London to the studio, as I do everyday. As you saw on twitter this morning I actually fell off in the most dramatic way, the fantasy versus the reality – I am pretty clumsy so it’s useless trying to portray myself any other way!
This is also the first time I’m wearing these super chunky leather pants that I bought back in the summer.. ready for this moment. They remind me of heavy biker-wear, which I may need more of after this morning.. Hope you all have a good weekend!
