Did the shirt tied around the skirt remind you of a designer?
Did the name Philip Lim cross any minds?
Well, it didn't really cross my mind until I started tying my jumper around my waist - definitely for convenience as it is still too cold to head out in the morning in a tee. Anyway, it then got me thinking about the runways and how much I admire a designer's ability to stamp their authority on fashion.
I always do enjoy browsing through collections on Style.com because the direction each collection takes can range from precise tailoring to fluid flow, a simple white runway to a striking extravagant show and many, many shoes that I would shake my head left, right, right, left with disbelief. With anything and everything as inspiration one thing stands out and that is the willingness of designers to step out of the 'fashion rules' and deliver a show that might or might not see new rules being stamped out. The boldness of not caring about anything but presenting their vision is truly exciting, to me at least. Even when my style hardly gravitates towards trends, I still appreciate the vision of creatives.
Ramble over - I am just going to be slightly narcissistic (in a non-creepy 'I am obsessed with myself' way!) but seeing me with long hair again is seriously weird! For anyone that doesn't know - I had a hair cut recently and donated my hair to Pantene Beautiful Lengths for them to make wigs to support people with cancer. So, now I am sporting an 'above shoulder length cut' and seriously loving it. Narcissistic ramble over!
