in appreciation..

Those trend reports always makes me laugh: "Safari is hot for spring" or " A statement coat is this season's must have". It's all a load of piss really with one of their favourites being the "80s' revival". That particular trend though is no pain for me to indulge in and it's no hardship if I so happen to turn out "on trend" because I really do love that decade! My adoration is such a defining feature of my style personality that it is mentioned in my 'About me' - now that's love! I quite frankly never tire of an ol' 80s' revival - tis deliciously sparkly and sometimes vulgar, but most importantly, it's fun just the way I think clothes should be.
In a recent shopping binge, I bought..somehow 'nabbed' seems more appropriate here..this turquoise leopard print dress in a sale in Miss Selfridge. Now, let me say turquoise is a colour I personally never ever wear, my mother has quite the soft spot for it, but I, on the otherhand, find it bit sea - sickness inducing. I'm not sure if it was the drop waist, the leopard print - embossed satin, the colour or that lovely 80s' ruffle running along the side or merely a combination of all the above that made it scream "buy me" as on paper the dress was a disaster waiting to happen. Of course, I hammed up the 80s - ness on a recent night out with orange nails, leggings and pointy silver heels - I never know when to draw the line..

Hey Kat,
Latitude was ace times thanks. I took wellies in the end, defiantly a good move. Though I did pour beer in the left boot at one point which was soggy. Haha.
It’s a great festival, you should go next year. Perhaps it’s too far for you though?
I have seen the new HP, what did you think? I thought it a little clich├ęd and cheesy at times. Overall, it wasn’t the best one. Ah well, I can’t really expect everything.

I AM OBSESSED WITH THE 80s! I hate when people call it the decade that fashion forgot or whatever 'cos I look back at the Brat Pack films and adore what they're wearing.

Hmmmmm yeah, every seasons seems to mention the prominence of the 80s Revival ....makes you feel they're waffling a bit (which I found out is probably the case, following my two months spent interning in a fashion magazine! I made up so many!)
I like turquoise for a night out, but I think it's a bit much for everyday wear!
