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.

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?!
