A MATCHES GIRL & ME

My beautiful friend Chloé is Fashion Editor for Matches (check out the blog) and the perfect Matches girl - a little rock n' roll, a sprinkling of Parisian cool, and always, always chic. Here she is in the perfect all-black outfit: Jamie jeans from Topshop (these looked so good on her I HAVE to get a pair), Day Birger et Mikkelsen sweater, Vanilla rabbit gilet, and topped off with an LK Bennett scarf from a Chelsea Arts Fair.

And what I wore for breakfasting at Daylesford Organic and skulking down the King's Road with my friend Trisha. I almost didn't post this because it's fairly pared down (and yes, THOSE Topshop leather trousers, AGAIN!) and because I look tired and windswept, which I was. The fruits of my shopping trip? Just a pair of gorgeous brown leather culottes from Zara (so Chloé SS09, right?!). I spent far too long trying to find a pair of tights to match exactly, with no luck even at Tabio (and the girl in Wolford trying to persuade me that shimmery teal tights would look good with the shorts...er...). And I contemplated buying a pair of the Russell & Bromley patent tasselled loafers before deciding that would have to wait until payday (and my podatric appointment - yes folks, I might be getting bunions at the age of 22! TMI, I know.)

I wore the Topshop leather trousers, Pierre Hardy for Gap biker boots with some Gap woollen knee highs poking out and a Primark jumper - LOVE the boatneck.

  6. Ah..the Pierre boots! They were the must-have when I was interning at Vogue. I couldn't get any. It was traumatic.

    That sweater looks super cosy! x
