Last night, Claire Waight Keller unveiled the Spring/Summer 2015 collection for Chloe, making the entire fashion-obsessed-sisterhood swoon and lust with desire never experienced before. Messages amongst said brethren/sisterhood were exchanged for a guaranteed positive reaction. The verdict was in after the first look – we all want to be a Chloe girl and from this selection of images from Vogue UK, its pretty obvious why.

Confusing seasons.

When September delivers temperatures such as 19 degrees in the shade, then we have no other choice but to prolong the lifetime of denim shorts and ankle boots. Keep a fluffy jacket on standby for times when the breeze reminds us of a traditional autumn, and you have nothing to fear. This outfit is definitely a staple summer look – its 100% fail safe.

On another note, I was brave enough to weald the scissors and cut myself a fringe on Friday. I know its a little risky but I always cut my own fringe – its the only way of guaranteeing the exact vision of your expectations. I’m so glad I did. It turned out exactly how I wanted it.

New sneakers.

Nike Air Max 90 – All Black from Office Shoes

For someone who wouldn’t consider wearing trainers a few years ago, I have a new little collection building with this pair as a new addition. These will be used and abused, I know it. They’re the best pair of trainers I’ve owned and I’ve wanted them for longer than I should admit. I don’t know why I didn’t buy them until now, but as soon as I was paid, they were shopped, clicked, bought and mailed to me yesterday. Its love. Other all black trainers I’ve previously eyed up are these Nike Air Max Thea in Black Anthracite, Nike Internationalist in Black White and Adidas Zx 700 Lithe in Black Mono – all totally awesome too but it was the all-black sole of these Nike Air Max 90’s which well and truly won me over.

The Fringe Debate

It happens every year. And the moment I get my hair just how I wanted it, I re-route. I’ve learned, over the years, to hold my horses, because a snap decision and a snip here and there can take six months of correcting, but sometimes its just a scratch that needs itching. It changes everything – you can wear less make up, you can peek out from the depths with a seductive glance, if you have wrinkles, it can also act as a veil to allude others of ten years the other way. But, the weather is its enemy. However, if you can wear it as nonchalantly as Julia Stegner, Caroline de Maigret, Freja Beha Erichsen, Alexa and Lou Doillon, it requires little consideration. I think I just talked myself into it.

Exposure vs denial.

Autumn Dressing

The more I see something, the more I love it. Even if I didn’t like it, or it didn’t catch my eye – if its repeated enough, I will eventually cave in (unless its anything from Moschino’s SS15 show – Soz Jezza) Case in point – rust red. Its autumnal, its retro, its seventies, used in the right way, its luxurious and this Elizabeth & James skirt is the epitomy of all of the above. Mixed up with suede and wool, its an autumnal dream.

P.S I tried these shoes on at the new Jimmy Choo Townhouse on Sunday and they’re next up on my hit list. If ever your feet needed a shoe, and I don’t mean orthopaedic, this is the one.
