happy april 1st! let’s start out the day and the month with a thursday poll, shall we? now that it’s getting warm out i’m taking out all my spring clothes and one thing i find i always need a new version of is a staple tank top that goes with almost anything. i could see myself living in any one of these this summer…which do you like best?
The popularity of the Boyfriend Pant has just risen. The Spring/Summer 2010 runway trends(thanks Chloe, thanks Balmain, and THANK YOU Balenciaga)has brought a cool vibe to the much loved – “throw on your boyfriend pants and grab a carton of milk morning scenario”
The best way to wear this look is to roll up the cuffs just a little over your ankles, pair with sandals or wedges.Wear pretty tops to avoid looking to ‘Boy’ and layer your jewelry.
Cropped leathers and denim jackets also work a wonder on this look too!
Androgynous dressing is a look to inhabit, and I’m sure you can take this trend into Fall too.
We have just launched a Boyfriend Pant shop of all our amazing styles we have at the moment.
Coachella is blowing fire into my hearty heart. Every morning when I arrive at my desk in work, I find myself subconsciously clicking onto the Coachell website just to remind myself of the days that remain. It’s now down to 18 days and I really need to start controlling myself. Otherwise I’m going to be hospitalised before I even step on the plane.
We’re going to be heading there to do a Festival Free People Style Stalk, which is going to be amazing and hopefully be great inspiration for everyone who reads our blog, and follows us on facebook and twitter!
So, me being from England, I’m used to festivals such as Glastonbury which = Wellies, raincoats, lots of mud, and fuzzy hair. I believe Coachella is an epic contra to this. So Im taking a note out of Bleach Black’sbook:
“Think comfort first. It gets HOT AS *%@# out there…. expect to see lots of lingerie. Bring a bikini or some sort of swimwear. I promise, at some point, you’ll end up in a pool. Headpieces (hats/headdresses/turbans…). Plan on integrating at least one of these“
My survival kit will begain with Moroccan Oil, the heat will sure make my hair go tiger wild so I need to tame it, just incase I cause some serious damage while swinging it around!
Document, document, document the Diana F and Polaroid Land will be my BFF.
Everyone needs to have a dress up outfit for a festival, so I’m thinking feather makeup and headresses – A Noah’s Ark theme springs to mind.
