Brogues Best???

Who wears brogues best.... Alexa Chung springs to mind, the Brit TV presenting princess who combines granny chic, come public school-boy, come indie rocker effortlessly into a street chic look.

She represents whats great about Brits and particularly London style the ability to throw anything together and make it look well..... great. She's also one of the most copied, if you like her style then I've got something for you...think battered brogues and dolly shoes, something Alexa pulls off best...

Get them here

British high street at its best. They have a great vintage battered quality to them, preferred by the likes of Miss Chung. How would you wear them? Take a look at my suggestions...

alexa loves...

Grey marl, camel, chambray, tan, stripes, Burberry, socks and shoes...Oh and of course a satchel. And all perfect for this coming autumn winter.

Got it Made

Stumbled across a great blog today....

'I see it, I like it, I make it' is the general idea and what a great one. Making new fashion and accessories for the home. Loving the fur vest!! Thats a winter must have! It leaves me feeling inspired and now I wanna go get my creative cap on....

P.S. - I Made This aims to leave readers inspired and encourages re-imagining, re-using and re-invention of everything and anything, and even has a new book available. So speaking of cut offs and all things homemade.... here's a few things I see, I like, I'll try and make?

A modified shirt.

A draped jersey skirt like Dree?

A diamond cluster necklace?Lace wellies?

I think I can do it...I'll keep you posted. Meanwhile take yourself over to to feel inspired.

Cut off point for Cut Offs???

Cut offs, a classic; a staple. Whether your style is Audrey Hepburn; preppy and polished or models off duty; grungy and casual. Whatever your street style they're wearable season after season. I ask you... 'whats the cut off point when it comes to your cut offs?' Admittedly with the English summer it can be very unclear. However we still have a few weeks left so get yours quick before the sun goes in for good!... Come on girls get your legs out while theres still a chance.

Check out my ebay store, I'm selling a great pair of vintage white cut offs. Wear them high waisted dressed up or down. Get your white grunge on a la French Vogue, or have a summer romance a la Natalia. Quick get them before they go!!!
