California Dreamin’

10 Apr

There’s a lot of things that, as a student, I can’t afford. And apart from steak and champagne, the most upsetting thing beyond financial reach is a golden ticket to Coachella. Every year since I could discern that the Californian desert line up was the ultimate music amalgam to ever exist, I’ve wanted to go. Tomorrow marks the beginning of the first weekend, and again, I won’t be there.
However, I am absolutely adamant that one day, I will. So for that day, here is a collage of the outfits I would wear in that desert among the whisperings and the champagne and the stars.

The Interesting Biker Jacket

22 Jan
It’s about as obvious as Cara Delevingne’s eyebrows that the leather jacket is perhaps the  irreplaceable wardrobe item. For me, it’s a necessity as  important as the curious Little Black Dress hype. While I’ve always found the LBD  actually pretty boring and unlikely to make you stand out in a crowd (unless it’s from Stella McCartney and has sheer polka dot arms), if you get the right biker jacket, it’s just magic. I’m head over heels for the standard black offering, which is coquettish sweetheart and vampy man eater in equal parts; it is the studded beating heart of any casual wardrobe and it goes with everything including your hatred of Jack Wills gilets.
The interesting biker jacket is all of this and more. It is the black leather jacket’s punky younger sister. When I saw this pink River Island one I was surprised to find that I wasn’t flooded with thoughts of Grease’s Rizzo smacking gum, I was actually thinking potentially financially dangerous thoughts. Damn it guys, let’s all get one. Just make sure you have a black original first.
