Did you know that they are rumoured to sew up the lips of naughty children as they sleep by night?

Do you remember the cutest dragonfly of all? His name was Evinrude and he was in ‘The Rescuers’.


Now you remember him :)


Perhaps Jeremy Scott will include Evinrude in his next Moschino capsule collection! Don’t write off anything!

Adidas x Jeremy Scott

Have you seen the new laser cut Adidas x Jeremy Scott winged shoes? I must admit, these winged shoes have been on my ‘to buy’ list for years but I never got around to getting them. Perhaps now I actually will – I’ll be able to show off some neon socks under these!

Black is still cool

I think out of all the colours, black is the most worn but the least liked. It seems to be the go-to colour if you’re uninspired  or just don’t feel like making much of an effort. It’s comforting in a way, I suppose.

I’ve come to appreciate black though, because of my collection of over-the-top shoes. In most settings, I can only wear the stand-out shoes with a toned down outfit, and black fits the bill nicely. Black is also a nice sort of blank canvas for powerful hats, jewellery and belts, if the situation (such as work) means that you can’t go all out on the ‘personal styling eccentricity’.

However, black can be made so interesting by using texture, volume, shape, proportion and so many other methods, like this collection of pictures shows. I hope you find them inspiring.

Styling Work: Ursus Cooler

I recently had a styling job for an advert for the Romanian beer ‘Ursus Cooler’. After a few days of shopping and fittings, we spent 16 hours on the beach filming. Here’s the final advert. You may have to log in to youtube to view the video because of age restrictions due to alcohol-related content.

I even had the adventure of driving the costume truck home because I had gone there by taxi in the morning, and there was nobody to drive the truck, so I offered to do it. I’ve never driven anything so big, and I feel that my next step up should be a concrete mixer! Ahaha :)


The advert was shot with Rock Productions.

Licensed to Ill + Dangermouse

I was in Topman buying a gift for a friend and I spotted this men’s t-shirt. I bought one for myself and cut it into a sleeveless boatneck cropped top, perfect to wear with trousers! I love the Beastie Boys, and Licensed to Ill is my favourite album of theirs, so I just couldn’t pass on this t-shirt.

I find that in general I prefer the graphics on men’s t-shirts, which means I have a lot of cropped boatneck sleeveless t-shirts in my wardrobe! I also have a lot of halterneck t-shirts – when I’m feeling crafty enough to use more than just scissors I take out the sewing machine and sew the t-shirt into a halterneck, like in this photo (the green straps are my bag).

That’s a very old photo – I’ve since grown my hair past my shoulders and shaved it all off again!

I don’t remember where I bought this t-shirt, it could’ve been from one of those t-shirt shops in touristy areas abroad – I like to get large sizes because it gives me more material to work with to make halternecks, and if I want I can switch fabric colours from one t-shirt to another.

Dangermouse was one of my favourite cartoons in the 80s! I also have a Thundercats t-shirt, bought from one of the same shops – again, I loved Thundercats as a kid. Don’t get me started on the Ninja Turtles…
