Personally, I think this time of year is a difficult time in fashion. Firstly, you are tired of your winter woolies; having to spend money on large items such as coats and shoes as they are the only clothing you actually see is becoming tiresome and, to be honest, it is slightly irritating that my outfits are hidden. Don't get me wrong, I adore scarfs, coat, shoes etc but there comes a point when I simply want it to warm up a bit! This reason is also partly to do with the fact I do not like glowing red hands and ears to accessorise my outfit. Secondly, you seriously want to immerse yourself in the delicate, pastel colours, denim denim denim or futuristic sports luxe. Oh, new spring/summer collections arriving in high street stores are making me giddy with excitement. I've already began stocking up on my spring wardrobe but want to save my pieces to suprise at a later date, in appropriate weather when they can be seen. Thirdly, London Fashion Week is upon us and you cannot help but become carried away in the exciting next year's unattainable fashions. The skirt Daisy Lowe is constantly pictured in, by Christopher Kane, I am actually in love with.
So much in love, in fact, that I thought, 'Now is the time for me to exercise my limited sewing knowledge, scavenge for the sewing machine and make a trip to Fabric Land.' Sadly, my efforts did not prevail and I ended up with a too tight, badly sewn, basically awful excuse for a skirt. I could cry.
However, I will not be perturbed; I will try again. Also, watching Alexander Wang's A/W 10/11 collection, after being confused, then grossed out by the models' greasy hair-dos, I seriously wanted these knee-high, what I would call, socks that split and flare over the shoes. Take a look at his show here.
