To break away from the catwalk reviews and personal style posts I've been focusing on lately, I decided to do a post that is more accessible (and also fun to do.) Urban Outfitters always have beautiful clothes (and books and records) in stock and these are my favourites that are available right now.
Darker colours are perfect for autumn. They are also suitable for office-wear. As Yohji Yamamoto said, "Black is modest and arrogant at the same time. Black is lazy and easy- but mysterious." I love the jumpers/shorts/tights look at the moment. Those dungarees are such a gorgeous, statement piece. I also love interesting tights and leggings right now. I keep laddering all my favourite tights so I think it's safer for me to invest in some cool leggings.
I've spent the past few weeks searching for a good quality Olivetti on eBay. I didn't realise that you can buy them from Urban Outfitters. That turntable is the most beautiful one I have ever seen. It does look a little flimsy though. (That is my feeble attempt at justifying the purchase of my chunkier Steepletone one.)
Left to Right: Bitching & Junkfood Velvet Swing Dress £75.00, Truly Madly Deeply Crop T-shirt £28.00, Cooperative Check Dress £45.00, Cooperative Cable Crop Top £30.00.
Monochrome prints are timelessly chic.
|Staring at Stars in 3D Jumper £42.00, Cooperative Dungarees £65.00, Sparkle & Fade X-Ray Leggings £28.00.|
|BDG Distressed Jeans £60, Parka Jacket £235, Vintage O&O Tartan Trousers £48.|
These three pieces have quite a boyish feel. I literally do not own a pair of jeans but I have been looking for some distressed/boyish jeans for ageeeeessss. It seems that womenswear shops only stock skinny jeans ughughugh. That parka is gorgeous but quite pricey. Tartan is my favourite. I really need to get some tartan trousers to wear to school with shirts.
