Best buy: H&M socks


If you love the fine-rib-socks-and-wedges look for spring (as I do), then here’s a recommendation for you. H&M have the best socks on the high street. I’m still wearing the long ribbed fuchsia and grey socks I bought years ago and they have kept their shape, haven’t worn through at the heel or toe and – the best bit – don’t wriggle off your feet when you’re wearing boots. I dont actually wear wedges but I’ve just bought this pack of 2 silky ankle socks in porridge (to wear with my tan Church’s brogues) and rust (to clash with my emerald Kurt Geiger T-bars). And of course I couldn’t resist the wee plastic Minnie Mouse-shaped box as a(nother) knick knack holder for my desk…

Juergen Teller for Jigsaw


Spotted in the corridor of The Saga Centre building down the road, this photo of Lonneke Engel (above) by Juergen Teller. I remember the Jigsaw campaign it was for and I found two more pics online… (more…)

First look: Marni Edition Winter 2012

I adore the styling on these new Marni Edition images. Individually I don’t know if these pieces would speak to me but mashed up together like this, my heart says YES!!!

Getting my Yayoi Kusama on

When will we get to see the fruits of the Yayoi Kusama and Louis Vuitton collaboration (which promises to be bigger than the Sprouse collab)? In preparation for the Yayoi Kusama retrospective at Tate Modern, I’ve unearthed my ancient dotty Converse and Goodenough tee. Maybe I need these Lulu & Co jeans as well?

PS: This is not a Yayoi Kusama for Louis Vuitton bag but… could it be an indication of what’s to come?
