Walking Glitterball Tall

20120308-172952.jpg

This pair of Kurt Geiger Snakeskin Salem boots (see previous Geiger Counter post for more details) are fantastically appropriate footwear for unpredictable Spring weather (if I’m allowed to call it Spring yet?!).
The perfect foil to any unexpected shower, these fakey snakey bikers look funky and fresh with any outfit – and give my smart pink 3/4 length Karen Millen coat a suitably subversive and casual twist.
I live on the South coast where it’s invariably brisk and brrreeezy, so along with the rest of Brighton I’m still wearing my winter woollies (which maybe answers my Spring question above!).
Today’s long, silver-grey glitterball-style sequinned jumper is by Fenn Wright Manson. Its delicate colour and scalloped edges remind me of oysters – and lovely lady parts, which is perhaps why subconsciously I find it so appealing! It’s lovely and long and wonderfully warm, and it belts up beautifully. Plus, when the light shines on the sequins I become my own little glitter ball – which the kids just love! I’m not one for muted colours, but this textured top magically lifts my spirits every time I put it on.
Unable to avoid my favoured colour-clash fashion entirely, however, I’m wearing these KG snakeskin boots, FWM silver-sequinned jumper and KM pink coat combination with an flippy orange dress from Dorothy Perkins.
Thus attired, I am ready and prepared for any meteorological eventuality, and fashion-forward whatever the weather!

Orange Crush

20120307-170041.jpg

As you may have noticed, I’m a big fan of colour: colour-blocking, clashing, accenting, flashing, indeed a veritable riot of colour is what I feel most at home wearing. So much so, that this is one of my more conservative outfits (although today my bleached white-blonde bob does have additional pink streaks in it, thanks to Kevin Murphy’s wipe-on-wash-out Color Bug)!
My hot pink 3/4 length coat is from Karen Millen, the skinny, high-waisted, zip-flare jeans are from the 1971 Reiss range, the orange jumper’s from Primark, and the leopardprint platform ponyskin shoes are by Deena & Ozzy courtesy of Urban Outfitters (see previous post). High Street heaven!


Leopardprint Love

Friday’s school-run shoes are simply outstanding – to my mind at least!
Dizzily high platform heels with leopard-print, furry ponyskin (or some such), they’re made by Deena & Ozzy and were bought in the Urban Outfitters pre-Christmas sale. For me it was love at first sight.
Surprisingly, despite their height, they are both comfortable and easy to walk in, presumably because of the chunky rather than stiletto heel, and of course the luxurious cushiness of the platforms. Which makes them the most perfect, fantastically funky footwear for the school-run. Who’d’a thunk it, eh?!
