musings and wares from e8 and nw3

Month: September, 2012

new in; everlane

i love a designer t shirt, but don’t love the price tag. this brand in the states makes quality soft thin t shirts for $15, only online, hence the price. i’m sold. these just arrived and are great. i particularly like the box cut t.




coat up

i’m so pleased the weather is getting more autumnal, bring on the mannish coat.





leather pants eBay DIY, t shirt COS, coat Whistles, patent heels Peacocks, sunnies Ray Ban.

trouser time

loving the mannish trouser and sharp heel combo, as seen in Balmain’s resort collection among others. if only it would stop raining, i could wear this out.

still loving the crop top, perfect with a slightly voluminous trew.

diy ankle boots

i popped in to Zara the other day and really liked these ankle boots, but realized i had some pretty similar shaped boots at home (without the zip). so i constructed these spur trims to update my booties (i acquired the metal rings by chopping up a handbag bought in a charity shop). pretty good eh?




more camo love

Discovered this beauty recently at Anthropologie. the front is a khaki military style jacket, the back a knitted wool jumper. ¬†inspired by this ArtiZanna has been on the case, more on that later…
