3 Brands I Need In My Life: January 2016

3 brands, Vivetta

Last year I started, and then embarrassingly quickly stopped, a would-be regular post entitled “3 Brand I Need In My Life”. I liked the idea a lot because, as much as I adore doing my “introducing” posts and going into a little more depth about one particular label, there are really a lot of labels I find out about, like a hell of a lot and want to share with you guys in some way. So I’m considering giving that another whack, but I’m still slightly undecided and would massively appreciate you letting me know your thoughts on the whole conundrum. Anyway, let’s get going. It’s a new year, a new fashion season and there are SO MANY THINGS I WANT IN MY WARDROBE!! Recently I’ve found myself afflicted by the the age old “clothes clothes everywhere but not a thing to wear” dilemma. This got me thinking that my sartorial arsenal could perhaps do with a bit of a refresh. And what better way to do that than by exploring a few exciting new brands?

Look Du Jour: Breton Again

By “impulse” I meant that I’d spent the entire season obsessing over them and trying to resist the urge to buy them (Saint Laurent does NOT come cheap) before finally caving and hunting down the last available pair, which happened to be a size too small. But hey, they’re so goddamn gorgeous I can deal with the blisters. Moving on, the skirt and top. You know when you buy something you love so much and feel so incredibly great in that you want to wear it All. The Damn. Time and subsequently do just that? That’s these babies for me. What’s funny is that they were purchased on the most random whim…

Staying At: The Mondrian LDN

Mondrian LDN

Ahhhh The Mondrian. You’ve definitely heard (or should I say read? Technically the case I know but sounds weird I feel) me talk about The Mondrian LDN before, particularly in the context of partying. I’ve spent many a fun night at the Rumpus Room after all and eaten and/or drunk at Sea Containers or Dandelyan bar a fair few times too. But until recently I’d never actually stayed the place so it was pretty bloody brilliant to do so a few weeks ago…
