I was invited to the opening of Club Monaco's sloane square store...and as a shy seventeen year old I found it quite an interesting experience. So I drank until I was drunk as a jolly sailor in order to socialise; Ran into anders sølvsten thomsen (v cool tall dude,) met a really lovely interior designer from Greece and enjoyed the fab choice of tunes blashing out from the wicker marquee thing.
MAX AND RUBY! RUBY AND MAX (etc etc)
RAF AND RUBY, RUBY AND RAF
OMG! YEY! WOOOO!
Just a couple of emotions that perpectuated my mind when the funky jumper arrived upon my doorstep. Deciding between this, or a pastel 'n' padded Miu Miu coat for fall I chose the Raf Simons X Sterling Ruby jumper because its actually a piece of menswear (I constantly get told off by my mother for purchasing womens goods in the past) and I LOVE IT.
What I liked the most about this collection is the imbalance of heavy chunky jumpers and coats with extremely skinny drain pipe jeans (splattered with bleach or whatever) paired with Raf's/Ruby's & Adidas' own interpretation of the U.S military's bunny boots.
LOOK AT BEN ALLEN'S LITTLE FACE!!!!
A few days ago I bought Optology, an independent publication dedicated to showcasting the finest photography and styling talent from Magma on Oldham St in the heart of the Northern Quarter. What grabbed my eye was the paper; a tangerine hue arousing childhood memories in the primary school art cupboard and the simplicity of the cover. Beautifully curated and presented, a magazine with the only one intention of being entertainment for the eyes.
I haven't lately been perfectly adequate to my responsibilities as a blogger, The month of June has probably been one of my busiest months to date as I've had endless yet very pointless mock examinations...discounting my grade 5 music exam. I'm currently in the middle of a week's work experience placement at Waterstones (For anyone who wants to know, Its been pretty boring - I'm not even allowed to lift up a box of books, A hazard and you have to be professionally trained....) so I've haven't had much time to blog hence why my blog has become a barren of old crap. It's hard to settle the balance between school & blogging however once again I will try blog more often as the summer holidays swiftly approach. Lana Del Rey's music video for "National Anthem" has just been released mere hours ago, I'm not sure on the provenance for her videos but I'm sure she had help sourcing the retro clips to form her videos. But I do like the wit of having A$AP play the starring role of the President - I haven't quite fiqured out the message behind the video that looks like it has been shot with Instagram...Enjoy x
