Black Beauty

Truth be told, I went a little batshit cray on Black Friday. For me, it's really the only time of the year that I can actually afford to buy my one true love- handbags. And I went in HAAM. So, I can therefore now proudly present my brand new baby- the Mansur Gavriel Circle Bag. I'd actually been thinking about this cutie for a while, but when I saw LuisaViaRoma were doing a very welcome 30% off I happily leapt. My main concern was that I wouldn't be able to get a lot in it, but actually the size is perf, and you can wear it three (count 'em) ways. (The red is also pretty spesh). I also managed to nab the last one of this amaaazing Ganniesque H&M red knit- it was sold out last time I checked, but H&M tend to do restocks at fairly regular intervals, so it's worth keeping an eye out. There's actually quite a few good red sweaters out there RN if you can't track it down- including thisthis and this. Did you land anything good in Black Friday? Lemmie know x

The Death Of The Trainer? Not So Much

Earlier this year, Pandora Sykes- whom I adore and worship- declared the trainer to be dead. To be honest, I could totally see where she was coming from. In pure fashion terms, the Stan Smith, the Superstar and even the Old Skool had all been very much gobbled up by the mainstream, and had seemingly had their moment. Me personally? I'm a sneakerhead, and will always be so. Thankfully, Scandi gals weren't having any of this death thing- they embraced kicks again- and where Scandis go, everyone else follows (even Pandora agrees), and so, at the moment I'm eagerly coveting a list as long as my arm (the Balenciaga Triple SEytys AngelStella's Eclipse, Acne's Manhattan and Louis Vuitton's new offering for S/S18); but my latest additions to my collection are on my feet as we speak- the Clean 360  from Axel Arigato. If you like your kicks simplified but bold, these are your babies. (You can also shop Axel Arigato here and here). What are your current fave kicks, and which ones are on your wishlist? Let me know x

Cordially Yours

I'm so, so happy cord is a thing right now- and if you're of the same mindset- you need to act fast as the key pieces are getting snapped up. The H&M suit I'm wearing is pretty much sold out everywhere (I stumbled upon mine in store- if you do happen to find it anywhere, then size down- I'm wearing an 8). Luckily, Mango have dropped their latest Committed Collection (which is, as always, sick), and they have some excellent corduroy pieces (yessss) including this blazer and these pants. (I also love love love this jacket and trouser combo). There are also some beaut higher-end versions around, most notably, this Acne number (matching pants here), which you've probably seen on Amanda Shadforth and drooled over. Is cord doing it for you this A/W? Are you ready to unleash your inner Annie Hall? Lemmie know x

I Don't Have A Boyfriend, But I Do Have Balenciaga

As tragic and deeply impoverished as my love life is, I ain't bovvered, coz I always have handbags. So, say hello to my new lil' baby/boyfriend-substitute- the Balenciaga Bazar Pouch. I love that it's not chic (in the basic sense of the word) and that most people will probably think 'what the sweet Jesus is she carrying around that stripey rectangle for?'. I also like that is clashes with almost everything and that it doesn't NOT text me back. Result. If you're thinking that it's cute but you might like another slightly lower-key colour-way then try this or this. (Dupe-wise....jump on this or this). Let me know if you're feeling the Bazar stripes (and also if you know any cute single guys with tattoos- thannnnnnx) xx

Straight To The Point

I don't think I've ever wanted a shoe more in my entire life, than the Balenciaga Knife Mule. I checked FarFetch everyday until I finally found a pair of Size 5s *victory dance*, and they are undoubtedly satin perfection. They actually seem to go with everything too, in a clashy clashy kinda way, but I've paired them here with some check pants. So, let's be real for second- satin mules aren't really ideal footwear for popping to Sainsbury's or hanging out at the pub, and such a beautiful shoe naturally comes with a hefty price tag. So far, the high street has been a leeeeetle bit slow to dupe these babies, but.....Jessica Buurman have come through with a copy, and if you want a reallllly cheap hit then try these. I deffo recommend the Real Deal though, if you can stretch to it. What's been your latest big ticket purchase? Are you as obsessed with Demna G as me? Lemmie know, catch you soon x
