To MJ with L.O.V.E

It is just about near ridiculous the amount of Michael-esque clothing I own.  It seems my subconscious has tipped the deciding scale when determining what inspires my style choices and purchases.  I attended a Michael Jackson tribute party with my favorite girl Ashlea and therefore had a plethora of garb to decipher through.   There are no words that can accurately describe what Michael Jackson meant to me – all I can come up with right now is ‘everything’.    He was in my earliest memories as a child, his music is the soundtrack to my life and his immense love and caring nature for humanity has guided my perceptions as a growing and evolving person.  Now two years on since his untimely death (and let’s be honest, any time would have been painful), it’s important to me to continue celebrating his life and spreading his message – it’s all for love L.O.V.E.

P.S For those who haven’t seen ‘This Is It’ I strongly advise you do.  As a London ‘This is it’ ticket holder it meant so much to me that this footage even existed.  It is a window to his genius and a testament to his unwavering talent and generous nature.

A Flor-iental Express-ion

So a recent work event called for an outfit chic enough to rub shoulders with the fabulous while keeping in line with the Orient Express theme.  All items are my recent purchases so I thought what the hey – let’s (why do I refer to myself in plural?... getting scary) just combine them all together.  This concoction didn’t work out too badly, little bit 70’s, vintage vibe, little bit pagan?  Either way I loved wearing this trench dress as it works amazing as a dress or lightweight trench jacket.  Just to send this floral/oriental theme into overdrive I wore these incredibly textured gold leaf t-bar sandals.

P.S doesn’t this dress just make you want to jump into a pretty watercolor painting??

Woman I can hardly express…

My inner feelings on your fabulous-ness!  Quite certain this is what the late John Lennon would write about Kristen Stewart’s red carpet choice at the MTV movie awards.  Now I know it has been a week and a half since the awards aired but I’m still hung up on how K-stew got it so right!  With the punk/rock Americana chic vibe and the voluminous unkempt hair she has certainly re-invigorated the Balmain-iac in me.  Now where did I put my stash of safety pins….
