My life is a bit chaotic atm. First abroad, now trying to seal the deal on an appartment near St. Denis. But anyway, since I'm being so efficient, I've decided to procrastinate by thinking which shop i could ever buy my entire wardrobe from (capsule-stylin' yo!). Rather than throw myself in with the hoardes at topshop, to risk becoming a spleen with no sense of its ideal, I think i would chug on down to pixiemarket (really, who makes spleen references except weirdos? And someone labelled me a scenester the other day. Seriously? I make spleen references and you think I am down enough to make it with that crowd??? hahaha)
Although I would totally wear all of that, tracking down things on websites worn with other things annoys me (handy links or commentary like mother of all cool boden please?) so for now i would just imaginarily invest in these Acid wash grey treggings? jeggings? w/e. I nominate them leggings. Anyone who feels differently is an arse.
Only drop crotch pants to slim thighs in a photograph? ever? Perhaps. All I know is Blue bleach print drop crotch jersey pant with side slit pockets. Bleach? check. POCKETS? check. OK, i'm down. They have pockets.
I love burnout, I hate wondering what to do with my bra. PERFECT! haha. No, secretly its the cape like shape and my childhood urge to be a fairy-princess-spy-superhero-astronaut. Subtlest spy EVER. haha.
Mayhem slash booty by maud. Provides own ventilation.
Kick ass zip too!
LBD? Screw that, I'm onto LSD -- little statement dress. This is very little. Don't ask me what AdM stands for.
Flowery satin jumpsuit with POCKETS. (again, i like pockets.) Sold.
On the site they call this a light denim jodhpur, but i refuse so t do. Breeches? perhaps. Harem pant? meeh.... Tapered?...fine. But jodhpur...for riding horses with???? NOOOO. Did I ever tell youu about the time I worked in Barbour on Madison Avenue? Park avenue princesses would wander in, look st the riding jodhpurs and ask me time and time again if they were some new form of skinny jean (I guess the new one would be tregging). Eventually, I gave up, and just said yes (You know who to blame if in 2006/7 you saw people wandering around NY in riding jodhpurs) Just like giving into the old boys jokes as to whether I came with the store (english accent... english store....bad combination)
Enough with the tangent...
I rarely where tees anymore, and this is largely due to my heckles with necklines (too high round-neck, too low scoop). And prints. BUT I LOVE THIS ONE. Why? 1) neckline. 2) print with glasses on a neckless to dangle in front! genius! I couldn't make this myself! BONUS POINT to Paul the dreamer with glasses (I feel like a game show host)! And I suppose if you only have one tee-shirt, you wouldn't mind the hefty price tag. meh. hefty.
Just FM again, with a handy dandy 'Grey-luna' roll-neck. As modelled with above acid-wash leggings. Leggings. Looks comfy. Stylin'. Thin arms balance it well proportionately.
Oooh I love those shorts. Maybe I'll bother to track'em down. But this double-breasted bastardisation of a blazer and a tux is the ticket. More pockets...yay! Balances out them drop-crotch. (mmm...comfy....)
FINALLY, on a parisian note... I WAN'T THESE REPOSITIONABLE PURPLE CHALKBOARDS!!
$15.25 =BARGAIN Only shippable to US territories...natch... wankery tools.
