Where: Oliver Sweeney x Oliver Proudlock launch at Harvey Nichols
As anyone who read about my experiences trialling Diesel’s Jogg Jeans may have realised, on Tuesday I unleashed my inner bad girl drop crotch denim wearing diva in a pretty major way. I don’t need to tell you how much I adore mincing around West London adorned with all things preppy, sparkly and generally Gossip Girl season 1 inspired, but it’s fun to mix it up now and again. I have plots and schemes to give my style a bit of an update over the coming months (more on that later) and this AllSaints ensemble was the perfect first step. There was no need to forsake my usual footwear for trainers or Balenciaga-by-way-of-topshop chunky punky boots and the top was exceedingly sparkly, always a plus! At the same time the whole look had a bit more attitude and, dare I say it, sex appeal than my usual blouse oriented concoctions. Not to mention that the low slung, thigh skimming, zip detail leather mini I’m now criminally obsessed with is totally Phillip Lim AW13! I even decided to push the boat out make up wise with smudgy eye liner and a bold lip. This, combined with my afternoon’s attempted booty shaking make me feel like London’s answer to Rhianna and resulted in some very embarrassing attempts to reenact the moves I’d “learned” later that night at Archer Street… Oh the shame.
Love Ella. X
