FLAIR FOR FLARES


FLARES

Whether it’s couture, high end or high street, wherever you look, the 70’s trend is well and truly alive and here to stay. Yeap, they’re Ah ha ha ha stayin’ alive.

See what I did there.

You might be scared to take your first bellbottomed step into the flared universe and rightly so. This is one area that can go horribly, horribly wrong. Finding the right proportion is difficult, especially if you’re vertically challenged like me. A more high waisted fit will help elongate you while heels will be a necessity, which makes them not the most practical of jeans, but still a silhouette that can earn it’s place in your denim rotation.

They may not be everyone’s disco ticket, but they’re a good alternative shape, maybe a bench player that only really gets play time when the favourites need a break.

Your skinny jeans have been good to you, they’ve been there for every wardrobe emergency, indecisive outfit moment and the after thought of your outfit on more than one occasion. They’re tired, so give them a break and put a little flare into your life!

ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS


All I want for Christmas

Can anyone actually believe that Christmas is in FOUR DAYS?

When you’re a kid, you literally want everything for Christmas. All the things, ever created, everything, just give it to me.

As you get slightly older, you learn the valuable lesson about quality VS quantity, but yet you still want ALL OF THE THINGS.

Finally you get to the point in your life where you actually learn the value of money and you realise that most of the time presents are a massive waste of money, unless there’s something you genuinely want or need.

We become sensible grown up humans, asking for things like exercise gear to pre-empt the usual New Years resolutions, bath towels, sheet sets or Soda Streams. Gifts become less of a treat ad more of a necessity. Less of an “I want” and more of an “I need”. What happened to that little girl who asked Santa for a real live unicorn? Well screw it. This year I’m asking for a unicorn. A really big one. The best one money can buy.

… Either that or i’ll settle for anything Helmut Lang.


SAINT LAURENT & SWEAT SHIRTS

As someone who would live in track pants and hoodies all day if I could, the ‘sports chic’ trend has been a god send.

No longer is my old grey sweat shirt banished to be couch potato, gym or sick day attire. Throw on a pair of heels, som jewellery and old grey is free to proudly roam the streets, bars, pubs and work places.

Breathe in the fresh air old grey, the world is your fleecy oyster.
