‘we wore stolen hearts, vintage souls’

Picnik collage

I hate to admit it but I’m kind of pleased about the drop in temperatures of late- I’m not quite ready to abandon my hope of getting some proper snow this year. After all my Vivienne Westwood wellies are feeling a tad neglected… I also think it’s a bad reaction to pastel overload. I mean don’t get me wrong, I like pastels just as much as the next person, but I really have no desire to wear peach jeans (or pink for that matter), or look like a Care Bear just vomited sherbet on me. Nor do I want to look like a sporty barbie… I know we’re hosting the Olympics this year but come on! I think I’m definitely leaning more towards the twenties and fifties trends!

P.s Had my first vaccines for India today, and treated myself to the new Vogue (not so sure about how I feel about the Lana Del Rey interview), Company (seduced by Chung on the cover, and intrigued by new matt look and cheapness), and a bag of Marti mushrooms for being such a brave little soldier…

    What was Lana Del Ray's interview like? I agree with regards to pastels, I don't think I own any thing in pastel colours! I love your skirt! xx

    aww the interview was just dead lifeless! She clearly had dodged all questions (and that was said pretty early on in the piece). I like the idea of the mystery of it all but then it's a bit irritating that nothing of any relevance or substance was said in the whole thing!!
