Ok so I’ve literally worn these had boy ankle boots once to a ‘fashion party’ at Movida last June. They’ve been sat in the box since their one and only wear so I see little point keeping them when someone else could be enjoying their edgy pleasure.
As you can see from the pictures they’ve got a few natural creases to the uppers (the leather is beautifully soft!), the soles/heel tips are very barely worn and there are no loose or missing gold studs.
I’m currently obsessing over the classic Gucci chain print! I got this red scarf about 5 years ago, I brought it out from the back of my wardrobe after seeing Cheryl Cole on the XFactor wearing the similar McQueen rope print top (below)
Alexander McQueen: Rope print and applique detail tank, $324
I’ve been browsing over ASOS.com more recently and absolutely LOVE IT. They’ve got Motel on there who’ve been using the chain print on all of their dresses, tops and even blazers (my FAVE-est thing ever! Oh hello MASSIVE Christmas list!)
MOTEL: Chain and dogtooth print blazer, £50.
MOTEL: Chain print dress with exposed front zip, £28
MOTEL: Chain print jumpsuit, £45
MOTEL: Exclusive to ASOS, Chain print dress, £40
You can purchase Motel merchandise online from MOTELRocks, ASOS.com and Topshop.com. Motel is also stocked in many Topshop stores as a store concession.
I know this is slightly old news, I haven’t had time to get round to writing about this yet! Sorry guys! Also, apologies for this very suddenly turning into a CHANEL blog! Unfortunately, Chanel happens to be my favourite fashion house, so thats probably why I’m leaning more towards Chanel at the moment….
Anyway, this is by the by…
It has apparently been confirmed that British muscian and fashionista Lily Allen has been picked as the newest face of Chanel by Mr Karl Lagerfeld himself.
Lets be honest, it’s been on the cards for yonks! Lily is always front row at fashion weeks, whether that be Chanel or not, she’ll always be sporting at least one piece of Chanel. She owns dozens of Chanel handbags – and is most often carrying (rather roughly sometimes – which does upset me somewhat) the grey large camera bag.
I have to say I was, and still am, in two minds about this collaboration. I on the one hand, think its great. I actually quite like Lily now – although it was only last year she went a little bit mental and dyed her hair blonde-ish and then pink… and only a year before that when she was wearing the hideous prom dress/trainers combo. BUT how she has bloody well blossomed! Just look at her in the picture above, quite the ‘Chanel Girl‘. It makes me smile.
But still, what would Gabrielle Chanel say? Surely she’d be turning in her grave? Hmm. I’m not so sure. One thing I am sure about is I’m very excited to see the shoot and the campaign. I’m sure she’ll look amazing. She’ll be the face of the leather goods – about right really considering she’s never seen without the aforementioned leather goods in question!
What do you think? Good or bad decision on Mr Lagerfelds part?
