A Cold Desert Mirage

The Harper's office has certainly been a tapestry and sculpture of fashion architectural perfection. The fashion writers really embody the high end gloss of the magazine, like fashion school illustrations popping off the page in clothes we can only dream and sketch of. From capes to cashmere, to wilderness parka coats, there's an office jungle of wild style around me. But one thing I've seen consistent is the coherent love of black. I looked like an acid trip illusion from the 80's in comparison when I came in one day in my floral shirt, such was the intoxication of inspired black layering around. I've definately been inspired though, with their shadows creeping into my twilight. Helping on an article about black lace and leather varieties has given me the physics and microscope enhanced detail on how to layer and give depth to the winter seasonal colour. So for my own interpretation, I funneled an asos knit over tight fit jeans. And flying away from my Burberry aviator addiction, I've replaced the sheepskin with a similar camel caramel cream colour jacket. I love the way it ripples and glows, like the perfect Starbucks latte that romanticises a winters day out. Hope you all like the look, and I'll update with my wonderfully bizarre doings from Harper's next week.

  13. I'm not sure which I love more - the way you write or your style. You are so right about the perfect Starbucks latte; it truly does romanticize a winter's day. Also, adoring the caramel hue of your jacket! :)
