Well... they say you gotta start somewhere, so here goes: The first look du jour.
You'll most likely find me sporting a pair of trainers more often than not. I love my kicks, so it is no suprise my wardrobe is overflowing with them and they find they way into many of my looks. These just happen to be one of my favourites, my metallic red and gold pair of Springcourts. I can honestly say I would live and die in these (ULTIMATE comfort kicks), however I am prevented from doing so as there are times when certain footwear etiquette must be adhered to, no matter how bling your kicks are! But for today at least I have teamed them with a pair of trusty American Apparel wet look leggings, a vintage silk leopard print top and a black silk scarf. With a little... well rather large religious relic that camouflages in far to well.
Just incase it gets a little chilly I've got my Turn Up The Style, Turn Down The Heat jumper which I customised at a Global Cool event last January. It was all about upstyling your boring knits and creating something that you just can't resist to cuddle up in. My look encapsulated something along the lines of the militant officer colliding with the marching band. I loved adding the heavily fringed epaulettes, they make such a statement. I now can't wait for the days its cold enough to flaunt my refashioned jumper.
