Lea discovered the most beautiful abandoned church just a stone's throw away from Alexanderplatz. It proved to be the perfect backdrop for this feminine Carven blouse featuring a print akin to a Vermeer and delicate cutouts. I combined it with the mother-of-all leather trousers and my studded Chloès that are slowly but surely starting to look extremely "loved".

I finally managed to drag to myself to the hairdresser after months of neglegt. I feel like a newborn.

The current insanity of life has prevented me from posting lately, in addition to the fact that I am moving this weekend into a new flat and have packed exactly 0 boxes. I think the occasional tumbleweed period is silently allowed though (please nod in agreement). But, to more important things: handbag straps as pompous adornment, coupled with an equally pompous bracelet are something everyone should learn to appreciate. Thanks to the almost surreal winter comeback and -10 degrees, I have been forced to bundle and boot up appropriately, which doesn't leave much room for any fun, so it's all happening on the wrist. 

I am wearing a Carven coat, a vintage blazer, a Topshop x J.W. Anderson top, Current/Elliot jeans, Acne boots, a vintage Chanel bag and a bracelet courtesy of Monnier Freres.

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.

Digital Strokes

Shopping

Sale season is a time of jagged, chewed-on nails, headaches and salty tears rounded off with a strong emotional cocktail of relief, anger and joy. Do I need to remind anyone of the Outnet's 1£ sale and the death threats that ensued? You have already seen my crowning sale aquisition in my previous post and although my wallet is far away from my longing grasp for safety reasons, financial and physical ones, it doesn't stop me from oogling and browsing. Excessively.

From digitally stroking the blue collar on that Carven jacket or adjusting that faultless Preen medley of orange and blue lace prior to imagining that Rubik's cube jumper together with an A-line leather skirt – my digital shopping cart has reached an astronomical value that of course will never materialise. So I'll go now and empty it for the millionth time and pass the staff of financial ruin to you.

I'm finally back on my feet after being struck down with the flu, thankfully just in time for Christmas. A recent trip to H&M, armed with a Christmas gift certificate given to me by my work, rendered this beautiful leopard print jacket from H&M, which I paired with these new All Saints boots that visually transform my feet into bi-coloured hooves. Confusing silhouettes were achieved thanks to Carven. There's nothing sexier than appearing as if you have 4 arms.

I am wearing a Carven coat, an H&M jacket, an Acne jumper, Mango leather trousers, All Saints boots and a Celine bag.

Apologies for not having responded to all the comments yet, I'll catch up on that this week!
