Gold Loafers

These are the shoes dreams are made from. I've been searching for a pair of metallic gold loafers for ages and have finally found some nice ones by J Crew. They're not the cheapest loafers you can find at £200 but will last and get better with age, I like a bit of tarnishing. They also epitomise the 'dressy flat' shoe that I think most of us are lacking in our wardrobes.

 Wear with: Rolled up jeans, all black ensambles, vintage calf length skirts- So many possibilities!

Classic penny loafers- I quite like them in silver too.

Topshop NEWGEN

Simone Rocha: Loved the use of different fabrics and textures in this collection. The pieces that really stood out were a silver metallic cropped top, black fur jacket and a wool/plastic top that best illustrated the juxtoposition between opaque and transparent materials, a theme that ran through the collection.

JS Lee
Simple pieces with suttle details, in a muted colour pallet.

JW Anderson
Rainbow jumpers

James Long
A sequin intensive experience.

On the Subject of Cats

I might be biased as a cat lover but I do love these wedges by Charlotte Olympia. They've been out for a while now and I was undecided weather I liked them a lot or thought they were silly- I'm going with like.

I'd wear them with rolled up black jeans like in this pic or black tights and a block coloured 'sack' dress. Wearing them with something too fancy would be a whimsical mistake.

I spotted these scarfs this weekend while shopping at Circus 11 in Old Street. By Silken Favours, I couldn't get enough of their various cat prints.
Available at Liberty's

Bernstock Speirs Hat

I can't decide weather this bobble hat by Bernstock Speirs is fabulous or just plain silly. Sure, I enjoy a dramatic hat just as much as the next girl but could this be a step in the wrong (wacky) direction?

Available at Liberty, £70

For the best t-shirts around I like to go to The CITP in Huddersfield (The Connoussiuers Independent Trading Post) to pick up a couple of designs by the propietor, Benaiah Matheson.

Like my brother (Benaiah Matheson) I have always been a big fan of orange clothing, so I am so pleased at all the orange on offer this season. Here are a few of the pieces that will hopefully be winging their way into my wardrobe over the next few months, yes I will be rocking some orange this winter!

Cos again- Firstly sorry for the very dodgy picture, I couldn't find an image of the dress online and when I went to buy it they didn't have my size therefore all I have is this snap of me in the changing room... I'll either wear this with a grey cashmere jumper over the top or with a long sleeve stripy tshirts. Black ankle boots and socks. 

Jumper... Cos.

Debenhams?- Shocking I know but this dress by Roksanda Ilincic is AMAZING! Again i'd dress it down with a tshirt underneath.

I'll probably leave the hat at home next time but I love to wear this dress by NW3 with stripy t-shirts or grey sweaters underneath.

My all time favorite orange moment- Vintage Lanvin.
