Well, as far as I can see they aren’t crap. I discovered CRAP Eyewear this week after spotting on Facebook that old fave of mine, Lazy Oaf are now stocking a range of the American brands shades for Summer. The brand really appeals to be because of it’s surfer, skate and 70s punk rock vibes, also their lookbook photography is totally kick ass.
I’ve been a massive fan of both Jeremy Scott and Melissa Shoes since I first became aware of either of them existing. I first discovered the magical, shoes of my dreams via the first ever Vivienne Westwood collaboration with Brazillian shoe brand, Melissa. I worked across the road from the Westwood shop and the first time I saw their sky blue and red Lady Dragon shoes, I just had to have them. They were in fact my first ever designer purchase from a designer store and I’ve still got them today.
FINALLY! I have photos and information on the latest Dr. Martens Adventure Time collection, which launched officially yesterday I believe, although the DM website is down so I can’t say for sure. What I really wanted to show you were the blooming photos, I’ve asked the brand direct a few times and not had any help in getting this info and only found it thanks to @inkypics on Instagram tagging me in a post from Blue Banana.
The BMO ones are absolutely perfect, really, really love them and would totally wear these cuties.
I have got to admit it, I DID overreact quite a bit when I spotted this collection, but it’s SO me it’d be silly if I wasn’t excited, now just to find some spare cash to treat myself and decide which pieces are worthy for a place in my concise wardrobe. I used to always be a Converse girl but ever since buying my first pair of Vans, I’ve been totally converted and they’re now my main choice for footwear.
Yes, it was Valentine’s Day yesterday but to avoiding being a cliche I thought I’d share this heart shaped wish list the day after instead since I love these cuties because they are heart themed and nothing to do with V-Day and I’d wear these things any day of the year for sure. If money was no object I’d likely own every last thing on this collage TODAY! Obviously it’s all red, because I just don’t do pink!
I’ve had a bit of a weird day today visiting London Edge I’ll try and blog about it at a later date, but right now I want to have a bit of a ramble. I finally got to meet Perelandra of Pamper and Curves today and she’s inspired my to write this blog after it’s been lurking in my brain for a bit. In Perelandra’s talk today she started by talking about how when she had her first child it changed her body and made her feel like she’s lost her style identity, this is obviously a common thing to happen to women and even though I’m not with child (although someone did ask me if I was recently, LOL) or likely to be anytime soon, I can totally relate to this sentiment.
I kinda feel a bit weird about Black Friday and Cyber Monday being a thing in the UK now which is supposed to be the post-Thanksgiving sales, it is just a big marketing excuse for companies to make more money and genuinely fuels a bit of insanity of people buying pointless stuff that they don’t really need. However, it’s not just the big corporate brands out there that are taking part now, so I wanted to take some time to highlight some of the small, indie and alt brands that are out there that would appreciate your money quite a bit more than those big companies.
We were sent a JORD wood watch to review and as I’m not really a watch wearer (merely just an admirer) I thought this honour best go to Miz who actually really liked the look of these wooden watches for himself. Read on to find out a little bit more about this unusual watch brand in Miz’s own words.
So I stumbled upon these totally mad shoes and bags inspired by My Little Pony on Instagram, when I did some research it turned out to be from Finnish designer, Minna Parikka who I’ve spotted in department stores before and love, when I checked out the AW15 collection I just had to share it as it’s so totally made, kitsch and colourful.
Party on Garth! Party on Wayne! Wayne’s World is definitely one of my fave films, such a classic! If you didn’t already know, my degree is in Cinema (not that it came in handy ever) and I spend the majority of my spare time watching films and TV with Miz, we are definitely some kind of nerds/geeks or something. And yea, I don’t know what I’m doing in this picture…
