If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you’re probably aware of two things:
1. Over the past year or so I’ve been attempting to dress in a more classic way.
2. I spend way too much time browsing the Net-A-Porter website.
In this post, I completely dispel the authenticity of the first point, and affirm the second. See below:
Shirt & Shorts: ACNE @ net-a-porter.com
Need I say more? My leather leggings and plain white tees are quaking with fear at the sudden love I feel for this extravagant Acne shirt & short pairing – a short suit, if you will (because really, you couldn’t separate them). I saw them on the Net-A-Porter website yesterday and have been dreaming of them ever since. Classic dressing, be gone! Maybe it’s the drizzly January gone by, or maybe I’ve turned into a Magpie, but I’m back on the sequin bandwagon so it would seem. I’m not entirely sure when I’m going to wear this as February, although slightly less depressing than January, still isn’t an all out PARTAYYY. Appropriate for Valentines? Maybe.*
Having said that I’d still probably tone it down with all black err-thing, because I’m still not that crazy** Here’s some matching accessories I’d like:
Clutch: Proenza Schouler (who else??) // Watch: Guess// Shoes: Saint Laurent Paris // Earings: Mango
What do you guys think?
*Lots of maybes. Apologies.
I realise I’m usually all about the clothes, but can we please take a moment to talk about the makeup at the Chanel Spring 2014 Couture show? Fresh, sleek and surprisingly, easy enough to replicate at home (I hope).
Top (L-R): Skirt: Christopher Kane // Coat: Rag & Bone // Phone Case: Diane Von Furstenburg
Bottom (L-R): Shoes: Valentino // Bag: Zara // Lipstick: NARS Semi-Matte Jungle Red
Whilst what seems like the whole of the blogging world is still having a flirt with pink, recently my mind has been moving towards the slightly bolder scene of red clothes. Maybe it’s because it’s a classic colour that I don’t own enough of, maybe it’s because I’m holding onto Christmas or getting excited for Valentines way too early (unlikely), or maybe I just want to buy more stuff (likely). Either way red is currently the top of my lust list; clothes, shoes, accessories – I’m not fussy. My ideal red item would be a full midi skirt, but I’m having trouble tracking one down. Sad face.
Hello, and welcome, to the slightly generic and very belated Polway ‘Happy New Year’ post.
First and foremost: HAPPY NEW YEAR!
I know a lot of people aren’t big fans of the New Year (or so my Facebook timeline tells me), but I for one love it. As much as it’s a reminder that time is moving slightly more swiftly every year,* it’s nice to see people be so hopeful about the year ahead… despite the fact they’re likely to have given up on some, if not all, of their resolutions by now. Aside from that, it’s just nice to drink numerous alcoholic units with your loved ones and
sing shout along to Auld Lang Syne.
A brief ‘sorryI’mnotsorry’ for my absence over the festive period. I had planned on posting a lot, but my fear of the scheduling tool and a inability to say no to socialising for the past few weeks meant the blog was on the back seat temporarily.
So here’s to 2014. No resolutions for me this year, since the only one I kept last year was moving my blog to wordpress, but let’s just hope for health and happiness. And maybe some new clothes, that might be nice.
*Hello 2014, my 25th year on the earth.
