Listen to this whilst looking at Celine’s RTW Fall collection.
Phoebe Philo creates her second collection for Celine this A/W. The minimalist technique, the simple but luxurious fabrics, Philo knows what looks good. The collection is strong but simple, powerful but flattering, conservative but sexy. I’ve never liked the shape or style of A-line skirts, but the narrow A-lines and silk shirt combination is my favourite look of the collection. The whole collection brings back traits of both the 50s, 60s and even the 70s. Philo’s got the variety that every woman needs – the clothes can be dressed up or down and each have their own versatility. Bringing femininity back to the runway, then dressing it up in a manly trenchcoat? I applaud her.
My Sundays, as you probably know by now, are usually spent doing mostly nothing, but tomorrow I’m going to a festival. I’m super excited because I get to dress up festival-style! I’ve surfing the net for the best bohemian/festival-ly pieces.
Topshop have some of the best festival dresses, I like this floral number (£35) the most, the frills at the top and the flowy bottom is gorgeous. I’d team with pink, green or black doc martens to give it an edgy touch (and you can’t very well go waddling about a festival in sandals/pink kitten heels now can you!?).
This studded suede duffel bag in nude is very bohemian-y and perfect for keeping festival essentials in (plus it goes with the dress!!!!). You can find it now for just £35 at Asos.com.
In terms of designer wear, this bold-shouldered Balmain jacket is just irresistable. Wear to a festival with skinny jeans and army boots for a darker, military-inspired look.
So yeah, that’s the festival outfit idea that you lot should try. I’ll take some pictures and show you what I wore tomorrow, and I’m gonna conclude with Fyfe Dangerfield’s cover of Billy Joel’s ‘She’s Always A Woman To Me’, which you’ve probably seen in the UK’s latest John Lewis advert. I LOVE it…
Even if you can’t stand the pokerfaced Lady Gaga or the single lady Beyonce, you must watch this video. With its racy outfits, multiple homicides, strong language, and ‘prison for bitches’, the video of Telephone by Lady Gaga and Beyonce has controversial and amazing, written all over it.
Here’s whats been blasting out of my iPod this week. It wasn’t so much the song that caught my attention, but the video…
Hitting No.1 in UK charts this week, I haven’t been able to turn Owl City off. The lyrics are beautiful, and the video awkwardly wonderful. With electric keyboards, disco balls, dancing robots, plenty of toys and a jar of fireflies, the whole thing is simply magic…
