Latest Inspiration

 

When inspiration hits you, it's a wonderful thing. I scour t'internet looking for anything at all that inspires me. It could be a picture of a puppy (usual), some wise words or some seriously shit hot style.

So, what's been inspiring me lately?

ROBERT WALLACE

I came across the 2015 graduate collection of Central St Martin's student Robert Wallace and it's all I can think about. It tickles every fibre of my fashion being, including my ruffle funny bone.

Sadly, he's been dormant since this collection and has very little by way of web presence so no idea when, or even whether, he'll be launching his career. I would kill for any of these glorious pieces though. Olive green leather ruffles? Oh hell yeah!

POINTY TOE SHOES

Ever since I can remember, I've had a weakness for shoes with a pointy toe. I remember being 13 years old and heading to the city to buy my first pair of buckled stiletto ankle boots from the goth shop in Virgin Megastore. They had a 4" inch heel and toes you could pick winkles with. I may only have been 13 but I felt so grown up wearing them.

Nowadays, my tastes tend to favourite flat shoes and for SS17 I have earmarked either some Marni, Krizia or Marques' Almeida pointy toes to hopefully make it into my wardrobe.
