Cracking Up

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Ok, I’m not really cracking up (although check in with me in a few days time, it may be a different story!) it’s more that the shoes are. Cracked, I mean. This is a new Stan Smith iteration, of which there are a few. Mon dieu, Is it true, this talk of red polka-dotted ones? 

Anyway, this outfit for rushing about town today doing a few last minute pre-LFW errands and calls. Never comfier than in a pair of white kicks, you’re just so connected to the ground and able. Also a new outing for my new Mansur Gavriel bucket, although not new new, as it was an eBay find and already a little worn from a previous owner, but I like it all the better for that.

Now the rest of the outfit might surprise you – the wide-legged trousers are actually Boden, I ripped them myself – just one snip near the seam and then rip with gusto – and really pleased with the result. Quite a light denim which falls nicely. And the perfect grey roll-neck was a vintage find at the Dalston Beyond Retro (full disclosure; I didn’t find this myself, big thanks to the Beyond Retro team who sourced a few for me to choose from in advance. But who know their stock better?). And the jacket, not even leather, but one I wear again and again from Miss Selfridge, it’s from the Petite section so just fits really neatly.

After these photos, I hotfooted it to Selfridges to get a LFW mani with the new Victoria Beckham Judo red for Nails Inc which is a wonderfully 70s orange interpretation and wish I could have shown you with this outfit as they really looked good together! No worries, will get them in tomorrow… Ah, tomorrow. Nine o’clock sharp at Somerset House. See you there!
