This is how I'd dress every day if I were allowed to - clean and simple, just how I like it. It looks el borangggg, except for the fact on closer inspection the black pants are in a subtle brocade fabric, and the trainers have a hidden wedge (hooray for the height advantage). Pow! Basics with a sneaky twist! I'm not sure what started it or where it came from, but I'm preferring a basic pared-down ensemble to trend dressing at the present. Which reminds me that I still have to show you my illustrated "perfect" wardrobe! (Soon, soon - I bought that iPad and have been sketching in my spare time)
Anyway continuing on that tangent, apart from one weekend in Sihanoukville where I spent a solid 6+ hours watching FashionTV, I haven't kept up with fashion month. It's a bit of a travesty since I'm supposed to be a blogger and have an opinion about that sort of stuff, but in reality my current state is that it's just a bit fatigued - mostly when it comes to the media circus, (more) street style, etc. Don't you fret, it's probably just a phase - but I do wonder; why is everyone feeling so super-saturated at the moment? See Francesca & Ivania - they both put it nicely. The funny thing is that this fatigue seems to be doing the rounds right now, and I've noticed a solid dose of this "back to basics" business on a fair few blogs. I wonder what the rebound will be and when it will happen?
