Dog Days Are Over

With London in sight, this intense step into the industry city and adult life brought a nostalgic sweetness to my mind today; thinking about the styles I've evolved through, and some questionable looks I've endeavoured to forget! I'm sure the embaressed experiments played a part in me establishing bohemian confidence now, but I certainly wish I'd looked a little more slick in blazers back in my school days. So in an attempt to rectify this, I picked up a retro green blazer at a market that was crying out to be clashed with electric acidic colours. Hope you all like my trip down memory lane as I look towards London at the same time. There's a menswear editorial I've included below that to me exudes this nostalgic sweet feeling.

In other news, I've just been enlisted as a contributing editor to Chictopia's online magazine forum, so keep tabs on that fantastic site for features from me!

    And thanks for your comment on my post about The Sartorialist.
    Scott Schuman is, from which I have seen when I met him,
    a man with great passion for what he does and he's very down-to-earth.
    He's very friendly too, and answers all of your questions very thorough - no short answers for him!

    I hope you'll get the chance to meet him someday, so you can see what I mean yourself.

    I love your pictures, by the way!
