For the past few months lace has been my material of choice. I love contrast - tutus and graphic t - shirts, blazers and pretty dresses - all predictable, yes, but it is such things that form the bedrock of my own personal style and the sort of fashion I am attracted to. Converse and dresses has been done a hundred times before, certainly, but with white virginal/antique/wedding day lace it is a wonderful juxtaposition even if it's not the most unique contrast. I was cutting out pictures from some old copies of Vogue today, and stumbled upon the centre image of Daria Werbowy in the editorial, 'True Romance' from 2007. Really excellent stuff and I love the aesthetic of this image (gotta love the utility jacket too..). I have actually never owned a pair of Converse, thinking them in the past to be a bit..I dunno ..'try hard indie'...that is before every Tom, Dick, Joe and Harry had a pair..but listen, I take it all back, and decide it's about time I bought a comfortable pair of shoes.
