WHY CAN’T I BE YOU? VOL VII: CARLOTTA ODDI

My latest sartorial girl crush is Carlotta Oddi, major babe and assistant to tits-mental Vogue Nippon editor Anna della Russo. Stylistically, (and for her sake, I hope mentally, have you seen the ‘Fashion Shower’ video?) the polar opposite of AdR, Carlotta’s outfits encompass all of my favourite things – heavy menswear and streetwear influences, prints, I also love that unlike a lot of high-profile streetstyle favourites, she’s loyal to a piece and not precious about piece repetition – for example, her Opening Ceremony varsity, and Balenciaga leather biker, which when I was considering buying it, upon trying it on made me look more like a badly wrapped barrel, SAD TIMES.

WAKA WAKA: FRED PERRY X PACMAN

Fred Perry have a reputation for great collaborations – notably their long standing line with Raf Simons and last year’s team-up with Dover Street Market to mark their 60th anniversary, which saw 20 designers including Simone Rocha, woodwood and Colette create their own interpretation of the classic Fred Perry polo.

Continuing to offer a fun (without being obnoxious) twists on classic styles, Fred Perry have just launched a line of polos featuring cult 80s gaming fave PacMan, (I promised myself a long time ago if I ever used the phrase ‘geek chic’ I’d hang myself) through ASOS. Ranging from £65 to £75, you can get them HERE.

PLEASE MUMMY / WISHLIST / VOL IV

I accidentally spent a disgusting amount of money by ordering a load of clothes that I was already feeling mildly guilty about buying to my old address, and surprise surprise they weren’t there when I made the pilgrimage over there. Obviously the natural thing to do in this situation is punch myself in the face and be a lot more careful with money for the rest of my life to commit sartorial self harm and…buy more shit!

From my new favourite website in the world, ssense

I bought some men’s sock suspenders the other day, I had a dream that I bought some and they looked really good, and who am I to argue with my subconcious. These give a similar look, but less ‘creepy victorian dad’. These bad boys are from ASOS

Image

I think people at work who are witness to my Hello Kitty obsession think that it’s ~ironic~, but  it really isn’t, I just love that lil bitch. I keep getting shouted at by scary old women on my estate for not having a bell, so I can justify this wondrous find as a NEED rather than a WANT.

ImageI have actually bought this but haven’t tried it on yet. Obviously, being a professional model myself it’s going to look exactly like it does on this lovely lady, and not like sausage meat wrapped in chiffon. Denial is not just a river in Egypt…

Image

I need a new wallet/purse so badly, scrabbling around in the bottom of my bag for change like a derranged pigeon looking for food isn’t my most attractive habit. This Alexander Wang baby is from shopbop.com and is only £125.

Image

My flatmate’s just bought this amazing Patrick Bateman-esque flasher mac (here), it’s a men’s, which doesn’t bother me, but they don’t run it in an XXS or even an XS, so I think I’d look more like a sofa with the wrapping still on it.

Image

I’m not just an incredibly pretty face, I am also incredibly intelligent and interesting which is why I’m going to read this on the tube so everyone will know. No, for real though I find anything about human behaviour really interesting, and I keep reading books about gay alcoholics lately so this’ll be nice for a change. Here’s the Amazon description:

“In his work as a practising psychoanalyst, Stephen Grosz has spent the last twenty-five years uncovering the hidden feelings behind our most baffling behaviour. The Examined Lifedistils over 50,000 hours of conversation into pure psychological insight, without the jargon.” So excited.

This is probably as ~summery~ and ~feminine~ as my summer wardrobe will get. I’m usually against slogan clothing, especially places I’ve never been, but I love how the florals contrast with the black, and apparently all I want to wear at the moment is sheer because I’m a pervert.ImageI’m not usually a Jeffrey Campbell fan, but I’m so surprised I liked these and they’re not black that they’re worth a mention. Again, these are from ssense.

BOY, YOU DA BOMB

Image

Bomber jackets are absolutely everywhere. I’m a big fan, I love a unisex trend in general and I always find it difficult to buy a jacket that is roomy enough to wear more than just a t-shirt underneath without having to size up. No surprises, but I’m a big fan of the Givenchy bomber jacket selection:

PLEASE MUMMY / WISHLIST / VOL II

I’m currently sat at my desk at work trying not to be sick all over myself and others. I’m convinced these are my final days. As I approach death, the light in my eyes dimming and my heart grudgingly sputtering along , here’s a load of reet nice things that would make me feel 100% better.

WHAT I WORE TODAY VOL.I

ImageHow embarrassing, the camera just turned on by itself and sprung into the hands of a passer-by! Total shock. Here’s me just on my way to Tesco for a lil drop of milk for me cereal. My favourite is red cherry wheats, available from Tesco.

BRAND FOCUS VOL I: CAST OF VICES

Recently in my never-ending quest for things to spend money on, I stumbled across Cast of Vices, a right nice accessories brand that tick all my accessories boxes – big chains, leather and an appreciation for a rude slogan. (I realise these three things make me sound like a foul mouthed pervert, and this would be accurate.)

There is a substantial selection available in their eShop, but at present, there isn’t a London stockist, but if you find yourself in ~gay Paree~ you can pick yourself up a lil somethin’ somethin’ at French favourite, Colette.

The eShop also features rare art books from Dash Snow, Dan Colen and Terry Richardson amongst others, band tees, and curios like an actual helmet off of actual Vietnam and US prison tupperware.

You can get all of the above from their website.

 

DISCLAIMER: I wasn’t paid for this, if I was, they’d probably want their money back.
