Leipzig

just spent a week in the freezing temperatures of saxony. beautiful and snowy. knödel aplenty.

coating up

when the cold sets in there is only one way forward, lots of layers including a silk shirt and a serious wool coat.

DIY sweatshirt

i got this two tone sweatshirt for a couple of quid in a sale bin but have never worn it because of the colour.
1. so i bought some machine dye

2. it came out great but i didn’t like the white stitching around the neck.

i’ve had this classic puffa coat since I was 14, i have a vivid memory of being in the Hampstead branch of French Connection in agony having just had my braces put on. this coat was a special treat, and i have to say i’ve worn it on and off ever since, although i can’t really get away with bare legs right now in these frosty days.
