See, I told you I could take these bad boys off. Here I am wearing a jumper and coat in the heat of the summer. Fashion victim, moi?

I picked up this hot pink jumper from Zara - as soon as I laid eyes on it, I thought of Miroslava Duma in this shot:

I love it when a fashion plan comes together.

(Wearing: Zara jumper, vintage skirt, Aquascutum coat, Urban Outfitters boots and bag.)


I don't know about you, but I'm over summer, the little London saw of it. I want to wear all my big, chunky knits NOW. As if I wasn't already in a wintry mood, seeing Urban Outfitters' new autumn/winter collection definitely sent me over the edge. Navajo knits, grunge-y midi lengths (perfect for layering) and boots! Oh, the boots.

Above are a few of the fruits of my haul (thank you, Urban!). My new find is Vaudeville & Burlesque, a label exclusive to UO offering lots of pretty little dresses (the perfect 'gig dresses' as I like to call them) and cute blouses. I picked up this midi dress - perfect with tough accessories and lots of gold jewellery. The satchel is UO own label - I'm loving a cross-body strap at the moment. And my personal favorite, The Perfect Boots by Deena and Ozzy. I literally haven't taken them off. I also picked up an AMAZING leather pencil skirt - to be blogged.

Here are my favourite looks from the lookbook - obsessed with preppy little shirts and beanie hats for winter. Be still my beating heart...

Oh, and whilst I don't usually blog about men's fashion, I couldn't NOT include this sexy beardy man. Is he a babe or what? I am powerless to a man in desert boots.

P.s. I cut my hair! Bye bye long locks.

Proenza Schouler and pearls = as good a pairing as Harry and Sally, Simon and Garfunkel, and - a recent discovery - feta cheese and peas (on toast - try it RIGHT NOW). I have a bit of a weakness for Proenza, especially the SS11 collection - I picked up the T-shirt a couple of months back and the skirt on sale. I told myself that would be it but that was before I laid eyes on the Autumn/Winter collection. I solemnly swear to eat beans on toast for an entire month so I can lay my clammy little hands on THOSE chunky sweaters. Mmmmm.
