No I haven’t split my trousers or done something disastrous in the trouser area… I’m simply noting the fact that for two days in a row, I’ve worn…*gasp* trousers. For those of you not in the know, me and trousers have a love/hate thing going on. We embrace each other when the trousers in question are perfectly formed and/or are quite strange/unique. Otherwise, mundane, plain trews are just a pain to try on and a bore to wear.
Ok, yesterday I was cheating. There is a grey tutu over the Raf Simons trews but still, the sweatshirt on the top could have morphed into a skirt to be a poofy tunic so I’d still count that as trouser wearing. The Pierre Hardy x Louise Goldin shoes were apt as it was the day of the stupendously cool Louise Goldin show. French blogging royalty Garance and Geraldine are in town (it’s so odd seeing them in Old Blighty…) and they very kindly snapped me (yes I am a leacher of other people’s great photography skills whilst not being able to develop my own…)…
Today, I changed three or four times, beginning with a dress, then adding these trews and in the end shedding away the dress to opt for these Preen trousers and the very comfy Tristan Blair wedges. The zipper collar is also NOT at all heavy (to those that asked…) and I even added more weight with some Paraphernalia necklaces.
By the by, I head these posts with London Fashion Week, though the reality is I’ve barely been to any shows but instead have had to enjoy fashion week secondhand through other people’s pictures and text… it’s ok… I keep telling myself that in about a week’s time I’m going to be all over Paris like a messy, dishevelled rash that just won’t go away, so it’s fine.
**EDIT** Lovely Geraldine has just put her pics up and has captured my cheesy smile… I know people are far preferring the ‘slicker’ second outfit….but I do so love the self-created Aladdin pants effect with the Raf Simons trews… by far my favourite trews of the year (say it with me..elasticated waists are GOOOOD!)
