If ever there was a song to compliment this outfit, I feel as if it would be Black and Gold by Sam Sparro (all I need is a top hat and fishnet stockings). By gold I am referring to the amazing textured tweed Chanel-esque inspired sleeves on my new blazer. You may remember I attended my very first collection showing at the end of last year. It was Tato and Memi who took the title so I thought what better way to commemorate the occasion than to purchase my favourite piece from the collection (any excuse to shop right?). After a six month wait and the anticipation that it might not fit (I was stupid enough not to try it on), it is finally in my possession.
First a leather skirt, now leather shorts. What's next? Leather pants (well actually they are, hello Watson x Watson). I'm not exactly how my recent fascination with leather came about but I have been impressed by its versatility and textural qualities. I had this outfit originally styled with Ksubi waxy black denim but I found the leather shorts worked out much better - and added a touch of Rachel Bilson/ Dr Zoe Hart to the mix.
My observant readers, you may also notice a little arm gathering that has crept up on my arm. I am slowly working towards a fully fledged arm party so I can live life like my favourite blogger right now, the Man Repeller. Arm parties are quite a costly investment, I didn't realise how much a single bracelet would cost me let alone 4. It' a gradual process which I was hoping to shortcut by buying a Dannijo pre-packaged arm party but their shipping rates to Australia are ridiculous.
Fashion Week is upon us once again and I will be attending for the first time. I said to myself last year I would make it my goal to be there in 2012 so here I am ready and raring to go. I'm sure the week will generate plenty of content for the blog for the next month or so, so I hope you enjoy the content.
