Kevin Rowland eat your heart out. Am so happy that dungarees are back in mode! Albeit worn more smartly than they used to be. Special thanks to Mr Nomad Thief for being a very patient photographer!
To me this screams Chelsea Girl, but to be fair, one with flair. I love the colours and textures she’s put together, I just want to feel up those trousers, socks, shoes. Now I’ve historically been pretty scathing about the whole Chelsea scene but I have to confess to a recent addiction to / fascination with / excitement about Made in Chelsea. The gossip and drama is of course irresistible, but the clothes too are a big draw. Phoebe I think dresses interestingly, and Louise particularly well for her pint-pot size.
Another good find from Zara, I got quite over-excited when I saw this (fake) fur (of course) gilet. The bracelet is from Next (would you believe it? I am not generally a fan of Next but it just goes to show you shouldn’t be sniffy), the shoes and necklace (again: would you believe it?) are from Aldo, and the jeans: Pepe. The gilet goes much better with a tan on a summer’s evening (yes, fur in summer – I think it’s always a good thing to be unexpected) but we didn’t get round to the photographing til now.
Now this outfit post was supposed to illustrate how some ‘brights’ can cheer you up on a dull day. But suddenly (here at least) it got sunny… The two tartans scarf is from Zara, and was motivated by seeing this lady at London Fashion Week. I’ve just realised that it’s the exact same scarf (I’d presumed she was wearing two.) The jeans are from Pepe, the jacket from Reiss, and the boots, Kate Cuba.
