EVERYONE IS BEAUTIFULTuesday, March 22, 2016
Now, I am not usually one to feel partial towards a canvas tote bag - if not for practicality purposes that is - but with an iconic, and charitably positive Bella Freud design etched on the front (and back) it is safe to say that my interest spiked and, I just HAD to have it. Sold at Sainbury's no less, in aid of last Friday's Sport Relief, and all the better then, especially as I am not currently (ah, as if such will change anytime soon) in the position to be able to afford a Bella Freud original (sob) this, will have to feed the desire for now. It made my day as much, when the designer herself liked my picture which featured said bag on Instagram, ALMOST as good as when the wonder that is Alexa Chung liked my tweet on twitter last month, the actual dream.
Aside from the unusually favoured tote, straight leg jeans were another purchase which evaded ordinary practice. The reason being for this past avoidance, or ignorance even, is that admittedly, I find any jean that is not skin-tight, or the exact opposite of that (and my most adored style) the flare, wide-leg or whichever, to exist in some sort of a sartorial half-way point, unsure of itself almost. Now, I am not implying that I believe this certain jean possess a conscience, instead, it strikes me as a denim which ultimately falls up frumpy, boring even. Topshop and their sales however, (this particular pair I scored for £10 around Christmas, would you believe) never fail in widening my wardrobe to depths never before explored, but still, with any jean there are certain requirements that each pair should meet - particularly the high-rise appeal - anything else just feels awkward to me. Frayed hems are of course, optional, but they make for such an alluring fit, so much so that I have to strongly resist the urge to DIY every single pair of my jeans, making way for eternally frayed ends, what have Marques Almeida and Vetements done to me?
Although I am now basking in the fact spring has sprung, I will be sad to part from my faux fur coat of recent discovery, the treasure of a coat was found at Primark no less, for £15, and with that I couldn't buy it quick enough. While my love of faux fur has reigned long, it had been a desire to no avail until I spotted this deep green dream of a coat, and it really is just that, I have never had so many compliments on an item of clothing before by complete strangers and friends alike, many have been shocked at my revelation that it originates from Primark, and the super soft quality and thickness evades from that fact in itself, it truly is the epitome of a Primark gem.
