My Chronicles of PFW - Fashionably late

What can a girl say about Paris Fashion Week on her first buying trip? Dreamy, fabulous, inspiring...did it really even happen?  Was I really there? Yep, that just about sums it up.

P.S I am aware of the superfluous food photos.  This was pretty much Heaven's gates opening before me - entering a world of fashion interspersed with grand food!

Amazing breakfast - yes that is butter!

Pop Culture Pays Off

Some may call me crazy as I believe Michael Jackson is ever-present whether it be in music, dance or... fashion.  Oh how I love it when my case in point is proven, thanks to none other than Nicolas Ghesquiere of Balenciaga! As soon as I saw the FW12 Egyptofunk too cool for school t-shirt collection, I knew I recognised the glitter girl. I had seen her before, time and time again - also enamoured by the glitter stardust that MJ spread across the world... No really, just check out The Jacksons 'Can You Feel It' music video.  That is exactly what's happening, and that is exactly where this image was first spawned.  Genius! Not only was the glitter girl 'borrowed' from this video but the star boy print annnnnddd the wave print from the Egyptofunk range.  I'm yet to read elsewhere online where this inspiration has been acknowledged but I'm totally in love... not to mention it works perfectly with my Prince inspired Haider Ackermann brocade jacket in purple (naturally). POP REMIX PERFECTION!

#Instagram #Fan

Hi, my name is Lucinda, and I'm an Instagram-aholic...
Instagram put simply has me going cell-phone photo mad and did I fail to mention that #I #can't #stop #tagging #everything.....!  This little app found on my little phone means that I know what to do with any little spare time I have.  Yes, this may sound like a slight #obsession (see, again with the tagging!) however I am merely a victim here.  Instagram lures the user under the false pretence that they are indeed an amazing, unbelievably inspiring photographer.  It's like you have discovered a previously untapped talent for taking photos - #reminder -  I am merely a victim.  Enjoyable nonetheless, it pains me to admit that I have not posted here in over two months (not that time is on my side - it flies, it's a fact) and it's all because of easy, breezy, beautiful Instagram!  Awoken from a drunken instagram stupor, I have posted some (and the word 'some' is to be used loosely) of my instagram masterpieces below.
