Pick of the Month: October 2014



I have recently been going crazy over my new tartan plimsolls from River Island. I had been looking at buying a pair of these cute and comfy plimsolls for a while but I was indecisive between plain black or the bold tartan. And then I decided of course I am going to get the tartan ones, perfect for fall. However I did nearly buy both pairs.. oh. Anyway I picked these up on a great deal, getting them for 20% off the £20 price tag for a sweet £16 all due to the neat 20% offer from last month’s Elle magazine. I have been wearing these pretty much everyday since I bought them and they are very comfortable and just add that finishing touch to my outfit. I will be honest .. I am still considering that second pair of plimsolls!

So are you crazy for plimsolls like me?

P.S I recently started uni so I do apologize if my posting is lacking occasionally, I will try my best 🙂

Milan Fashion Week:Moschino Fall 2013 RTW

Fashion Week is moving swiftly on as we have now approached Milan! One of the collections to hit the runway this week was Moschino. This collection had an interesting theme running through it with a Tartan highland inspired look and an equestrian inspiration. The collection seems rather unusual and quirky to say the least but did contain the usual Moschino monochrome which is always making an appearance. Compared to previous collections this one is very ‘out there’ if you know what I mean and seems to be too much for a Ready to wear collection in my opinion. Here below are some shots from the runway show. Are you a fan of this collection ? To see all the runway shots go to Style.com. Credit to Style.com for images.
