The perfect accessory.

I love a good accessory, who doesn't? And there is no better accessory than a cool pet, I'm not talking a handbag dog, I'm talking a dog to go for walks with, so you don't look like a weirdo walking in the rain on your own crying. Jokes. Anyway it's January it's par for the course. In other news how simple is this outfit? And I cannot get enough I this shirt, I've always ignored classics, I considered them too dull. However the collar and cuffs on this baby far surpass my wildest shirt dreams. So there we are despite the accessory of a great dog, I've gone for a classic item. Don't worry it won't be long until I'm back to my glitter and cape times. 

Oh and I'm outside the Coffee Counter in Brighton. The cutest new coffee shop complete with retro video console. Go there. Do it, keep out of the rain!

How to... Wear double denim!

Double denim, a crime against fashion or a brave choice? Whatever your feelings on the subject it's undeniable that this combination is controversial! A very good male friend of mine recently arrived at my house wearing strait legged jeans and a classic style denim jacket. He divided the room. My opinion? He went down in fashion history as a very brave man! 

Now here you can see I'm taking a rather subtle approach to this look, the denim shirt with just a collar and raw edged fabric poking out from underneath my jumper is a tiny nod to this look. And I think it works a treat. However when going nuclear with this vibe it's worth considering the risks. You can look like a cowboy, a nineties throwback, a member of Bewitched or a faded and failed musician. To be honest I personally think that all of these can be credible looks, although its been said before that I may not be the right person to ask when looking for the general opinion on a look! 

Lets just say that's its brave, and brave is good. Plus it's bloody practical. Who doesn't own a shedload of denim?! But my absoulote favourite and coolest way to do double denim is black fitted jeans with a blue denim jacket. Too cool. Who says I can't be subtle?! 

Oh yeah. Just casually hanging out in my kitchen with my denim outfit...
