The Look: A Self Portrait Through Others, available here
Ali has the best shoes, always.
For me though, these are the best of the best.
This is the beautiful Olivia Chaney, performing last night at a gig in Bloomsbury. She sings a mix of traditional folk reworked in her own style and heart wrenching stories of her own. Oh look, you can see more about her on her ‘increasingly slick’ site over here..I’m hoping to work on a collaboration with her soon, fingers crossed.
I love DMs, when I was a teenager it was all I wore. I think my mother despaired of ever getting me into anything more girlie. They seem to hold the same power now, I’m always struck by how good they look even though my personal style has moved on.
I thought these ones looked great, spotted today on the tube, a pristine pair of classic eight hole black…with tiny frilly socks.
Lou Power, the brain behind the Beth Graham label, working out some practicalities of the new seasons collection.
This is so my favourite place to go for a cuppa tea at the moment, it’s so light and cosy at the same time. It’s owned by beautiful Demelza who who has this fresh faced Aussie style with just the best topknot and who makes all the cakes and amazing food in there.
This morning she was putting some home made lids on the home made marmalade (she does all these cool chutneys and jams that you can buy there too) and we got talking about this and that and, you know, clothes. She’s always has the best jeans on, I noticed.
“Those red jeans, everyone’s asking me about those ones! They’re actually H&M and I dyed them. They were this real flouro orange colour, really too bright and it just wasn’t me so I dyed them. I wanted them to be this rusty burnt colour and they turned out really well. They don’t have them in there any more though, they have another colour in there now.
I just live in jeans, bright jeans, that’s what I’m all about at the moment. Apart from today I’m in chinos, because I’m so hungover I couldn’t think straight, ha!”
