kate moss – w mag march 2012

My friend bought W recently for her artist boyfriend who likes to draw inspiration from high profile editorials.

Flicking through it I thought I recognised the cover star & model in one of the shoots & it took me a few minutes to realise it was Kate Moss. I’m a Kate fan, but I often grow weary of the media hype surrounding her skinny jeans and rockstar husband, so I was happy to see this & remember that above all she’s a bloody great model.

Check out the rest of the shoot here. Shot by Steven Klein, natch.

girlcrush #grimes

A lot of my favourite things seem to come from Canada – Chromeo, Trailer Park Boys, Mountain Dew, Ryan Gosling and now Grimes.

I am so excited about seeing her play at Forbidden Fruit Festival in Dublin this summer. Not only am I a fan of her music, but her style too – a little bit 80’s electro, a little bit riot grrrl, a little bit grunge.

If it wasn’t for that pesky day job i’d have a lilac 50’s fringe in the morning!

Check out her clothes in the video for Oblivion –  obsessed with the gold & black hoodie and the huge sailor style collars.

Do It Like a Dude

It’s not a post about Jessie J, thankfully. Inspired by this post on Boy Meets Fashion, where I fell in love with his studded shoulder jumper, I took a peek on the Topman sale section to see what beauties awaited.

With a bit of imagination and the odd fix here & there (cutting sleeves off shirts, buying a size smaller/bigger, slashing necks on tshirts) you will often find that the men’s section is cheaper than the women’s in various shops.

I often like things oversized and comfy so buying from the men’s section makes sense for me when i’m buying for my tomboy downtime. Here’s a few picks from Topman, maybe you’ll find something you like and chances are there won’t be a woman in the same outfit as you either!

This would be cute with a ribbon or neck-tie.

Do you ever buy from the men’s section or would you be inspired to? Tell me all your secrets!

Glass of Guinness

Well, it is nearly Paddy’s Day. I got this dress online from She Inside – it is the softest wool and fits beautifully…on my housemate. (damn you, boobs!)

Here she is modelling it for me. Seriously, my photography skills need some brushing up! Be kind to her though eh? You can clearly see she’s trying to run away from me in the last photo! The dress is still available now & is even on sale, delivery time was about 8-9 working days, so hurry and snap it up!
