“You can only run away for so long. Then you have to stop, be still and feel the awkwardness.”
I’m REALLY struggling to log into WordPress right now. Not only that, but I’m REALLY REALLY struggling to copy my Tumblr posts over to WordPress. So, as a compromise, why not migrate with me over to Tumblr? My address is Judypink.tumblr.com.
I swear you will not be disappointed! ;o Life is a breeze!
Catwalk Summary: Massive emphasis on nature. Lots of cosy sheepskin, chunky knits, ankle boots, masculine tailoring, short skirts, maxi dresses and cable knit thigh high socks.

Rating: 7.5/10 – I was more impressed than I thought I would be.

I thought I liked this dress when I saw it on the Topshop Unique runway last London Fashion Week back in September. Now the dress is online, I KNOW I love it and I WANT.
Topshop Unique and Boutique, for me, have been lacking somewhat recently… maybe it was just the curse of that awkward transitional period between Autumn/Winter and Spring? I certainly hope so!
Topshop Unique Hawaiian Print Dress, £120.
The AllSaints SALE is now on at AllSaints.com across all sites, the UK/ European language sites and the US site. The AllSaints SALE is also across all UK/Europe stores and in the Bloomingdales New York Concession and the newly opened LA Robertson BVLD store.
Get yourself something pretty to wear for Christmas Day or how about a lovely party dress in time for New Years Eve? Good timing AllSaints!
James was getting his daily REDDIT update when he came across the below snowy scene…
I thought it was absolutely amazing and just had to share! Heh! It looks like Karl Lagerfeld has a doppleganger afterall!
You would really never think a snowed-under barbecue could look like a person, nevermind someone so uniquely looking as Mr K! UNCANNY!
‘JOCKEY’ Chelsea Boots, Topshop, £55.
As I mentioned about a week ago in my previous ‘Jockey’ Chelsea Boots post I was desperately after these boots… We went shopping in the West End this weekend and after giving up hope, I said “One last try in Topshop for those boots?”. So we went to the basement and the Shoe dept in Oxford Streets Topshop, I searched the shelves… and NOTHING. However, last year I managed to get my ‘AMELIE’ Topshop Boots on the ‘Buy It Now Regret It Later’ shelf, in my size… so with my last hope still hanging on by a thread I dashed over the shelf ‘just incase’. And yes, to my absolute amazement, there they were! MY boots, in my size! UNREAL.
OH AND it gets better….
As you may know, I used to work in Topshop Oxford Street this time last year and I bumped into a colleague who used to work on my dept… she gave me a ‘Friends and Family’ voucher enabling me to get 15% off my boots – to boot (bad pun, soz!)
BONUS ROUND INDEED.
Here’s some quick pics…Also, what is the best suede protector going? (Cheapish please??) Not the best idea getting red suede shoes in Winter…

Absolutely love the new AllSaints campaign imagery, so I thought I’d collate all the new images into one blog for ease of viewing. The shots look perfectly AllSaints, the photographer and editor have captured the brand perfectly!
My fave AW09 pieces are the ladies Damisi Military Boots, Mens Tread Boots (awaiting delivery), Mens Claxon Trousers/Blazer (awaiting delivery), Illume Tee (awaiting delivery); and of course, and the winter woolies! I’m really looking forward to Autumn to be able to wear it all. The weather is rubbish at the minute, so unpredictable! Thankfully layering is chic this season….
What are your favourite pieces from the campaign imagery/the new collection online?
