After a series of bright ensembles during LFW, the soupy sky has caused me to return to burgundy, black and generally wintery colours. I might as well milk that until I bust out the neons for spring again. The weather has always been a very influential factor in throwing together my daily wear. When it gets too depressing, the brights get toted about as a form of protest. This blouse is one of the oldest items in my closet. I've had it for six years and it still is one of those items that I depend on. It's been to the grungiest parties and the longest days at uni; we go way back. I think in a time of hyper-circulation when it comes to new items, it's important to retain certain pieces that are dependable and personally timeless, otherwise you end up losing your grip on reality. I remember a friend from Scotland who would purchase a completely new wardrobe every month at Primark. Insanity has no limits when it comes to shopping.
I am wearing a Carven coat, a Diana Orving blouse, a Moxham bracelet, My Pet Square leather trousers, All Saints boots and a DvF bag.
