London Bridge


It's been so gloomy lately, that I can actually make believe I'm in London. I am lamenting the severe lack of Topshop around, though... The huge boots I'm wearing are actually equestrian boots but since they're rubber they make a damn good pair of rain boots. Or should I say gumboots or wellies, if I'm pretending to be British?

In non-British news, I am completely obsessed with this Teen Vogue editorial. I am always drawn to glamourous grunge sorts of images, even if it never really comes through in my own outfits. Long live sequins and boots and bunny masks.



EDIT -Dude, I'm not IN London, the crappy weather just makes me feel like I am.

I'm not sure what you mean by "it never comes through in my outfits"... because it totally does. It's nice to see someone who embraces eccentric pairings and takes some (tasteful) risks.

Charlotte said...

I love that editorial! And your equestrian boots look so nice, much more streamlined then regular rain boots and they go wonderfully with your outfit.

Hope you're having a great time in London :D

That cardigan is the sweetest blue! You look great (but when don't you?!?!)

I agree, the TV photoshoot was surprisingly well done. I loved the colored streaks of hair...
