My mustard suede brogues came from ASOS today, I’m so pleased with them! With the exception of cheap, black flats for college, these are the first pair of flat shoes (as opposed to trainers) that I’ve bought in over a year, and they’re definitely a great addition to my wardrobe. They’re much more of a true yellow-y mustard colour in the flesh, rather than the more lime green colour that they looked in the photo on the ASOS website, which is exactly what I wanted.
Following an equally crazy ‘Collection 1‘, Barcelona brand Skulls have released a lookbook for their ‘Collection 2‘. I love the quirkiness of each piece, and the interesting fabrics used make sure that one of these caps would certainly be the focal point of your outfit. Here’s what Skulls have to say about the collection:
“A collection based on my own personal craze, based on seasons ahead, with a colorful twist, with style and with the friends I have spent my skateboarding days. All hats one size fits all, 5 panel hats, Made in USA.”
My personal favourite is the galaxy print one, what do you think? The collection will be available from retailers soon.
Here’s a closer look at my new leopard print satchel I posted a few days back, I love it! As always, hypes, comments, new fans and new Lookbook-ers to check out are always appreciated!
You may have seen my post last month about A Bathing Ape’s collaboration with Sperry Top-Sider, which featured a preview of this gorgeous camouflage chukka boot, which we can finally have a closer look at. The collaborative effort with men’s shoe god Mark McNairy comes in two colourways, both equally nice, in my opinion. Unfortunately it has sold out on the Bape online store, but keep an eye out for it elsewhere if you’re interested! The brogue shoe from the same collection is still available.
The catwalk is boasting some really sleek hairstyles for A/W 2011, some less wearable than others! I’ve already unknowingly rocked a few of these, but I’ll definitely be trying some more! My favourites are the effortless Viktor & Rolf plait and Chanel bun, the slick Paul & Joe and Louis Vuitton ponytails, the Missoni style and the gorgeous glossy look by Aquascutum. Which are you going to try?

The infrared is the most classic AM90 colourway, and this exciting shoe is definitely my favourite of the Hyperfuse releases so far. It was first shown off at the Crooked Tongues BBQ in London, but unfortunately enough they won’t be going on sale! It is thought that a very limited 80 pairs were produced and handed out to select individuals, so keep your eye on ebay if you really want a pair. (Images via Highsnobiety)
You may have seen my post last month on my favourite winter metallics – now Elleuk.com are talking about their favourite futuristic pieces for Autumn/Winter, metallic trousers. Take a look at their ‘6 of the best below’. It’s a quite a difficult look to pull off, in my opinion, and requires the rest of your look to be more subtle. My favourites from this selection are the gorgeous Alexander Wang trousers, the more subtle of the 6.
Personally, I prefer metallic trousers to jeans and unfortunately the Wang pair are a little out of my price range so instead I’d love a pair of these Cigarette Metallic Trousers from Topshop, £45. Which are your favourites? Will you be rocking this trend?
A very simple and very cheap outfit! With the exception of my £80 Topshop shoes, my hand painted t-shirt was only 99p plus £1.99 postage from eBay, and my striped skirt was £3.99 from H&M. I bought this bowler hat from a market in London years ago, I think it was around £10.
