    Zara's are okay for jackets but tend to begin to lose shape after a year which is crap.
    I've actually owned a 60% wool Zara coat for several years now and it's fine apart from some minor bobbling. I bought it second hand also so I imagine it's been worn for at least one season before it was tossed.

    Went shopping out of town on Friday again and ended up exchanging the Zara coat I had originally bought online for a smaller size and so far I'm quite happy with it. The boots are good too, except I made the huge mistake of wearing them for the first time with trainer socks. 15 minutes of walking towards the train station and they peeled off the skin just above my heels so the remaining 20 minutes of the walk were rather painful. So needless to say, as soon as I got off the train I had an emergency visit to the pharmacy. Classic me, I always suffer from the footwear I buy!

    Anyhow, the rest of the outfit I put together for the Manson show last night was a pair of faux leather leggings I mentioned before and a geometric black and white cotton knit dress by Clements Ribeiro. I'va had this dress for sevral years now and still in love with it. Would have been nice if they added some elastane to the garment because it stretched out over the years but oh well. I wasn't in the mood for photos yesterday so I didn't take any full body shots but here's a pic of the outfit and a makeup look I stole from a runway show:







    I do a lot of sale hunting in the northern hemisphere off season (handily our winter) and pick up cheap things from places like Hobbs when they are throwing them out.
    Wow, you actually travel abroad to go shopping? Consider me jealous.


    I am waiting patiently for this off the shoulder/peasant/formless 70s through the lenses of the 90s to pass on.
    Yes! I think it's time for it to go now, I mean come on, it's been a while. Too much 90's nostalgia, I can't relate to it becase I think it was the worst fashion decade of the 20th century. Why are there still scrunchies and tattoo chokers, whyyyy... I don't mind check shirts though, I actually saw some really nice ones when I was out shopping and thought wow, this is totally what Shangrie-LIE would wear if he was a woman! I imagine he would look something like this:



    Goodluck with the summer wardrobe hunt by the way!

    Golden Eel, you need some layers son! That outfit doesn't look very warm. Maybe get a chunky wool blend grandpa cardigan, I think it would fit the clothes you already have. :D

    Finally, some wifi to reply with...

    Hah! I remove things that are dying, or I don't wear. Reasonably ruthless about that. But I understand finding something gone punk would behard to remove....:)

    I am glad you sorted out the coat! Ahh, shoes. There is no shoe on the face of the planet that doesn't cause me pain, even when I have owned them for decades. Apparently shoes and my feet were not designed to go together and so I am always a veritable dispenser of bandaids of varying sizes, shapes and integrity. Still! At least you could carry on and know that trainer socks are not a go for now :)

    I am sure it looked amazing together in ensemble - the separate bits do. And the geometric pattern on the dress is really cool. :) The makeup though, is extra awesome - not least the shade of green and the way it glimmers against your hair. Kind of Poison Ivy, but with runway chic going on as well.

    Er, I am mostly abroad for other reasons and go shopping while there??? Not specifically for shopping. Plus if I know the sizes and cuts are consistent (from the store) then I can order online pretty easily. And Europe is a lot better for winter coats than here. Waaaaaaaaaaaaay better.

    Please, please, please. It is making my summer shopping some sort of second level of hell. I have no problem with combat boots, check shirts, leggings and some of the more angled things .. but that is about it. Block heels and chokers, and everything a-line/floaty is terrible though. Not to mention the slew of jeans that are hard to wear. So the summer shopping is mostly depressing and not very fruitful. Difficult, because I still need clothing to wear and I can't wear 'business dresses' all day every day. Or at least I shouldn't. Oh well. Eventually I'll find some things!
