Midnight Rainbows

London comes to life at night, where the shadows and streets prey on the clubbing kids. I sound like I've been reading a feast of Neil Gaiman, but there's something darkly magical about the transformation of a business city by day to the eccentric colour of the nightclub. And it's a time I love to revel in rainbows and wear embellishments to electrify the dark sky. And for the perfect 'work to dancefloor' styling soundtrack, John Varvatos U.S.A is a designer that captures day and night perfectly in one thread and swagger. The clothes are suited and polished from afar, but up close have a fuzzy and distressed texture that could be Russell Brand going to an interview. I've included an outfit example of mine below that mirrors this slick grunge number for the punk dancefloor with my flatmate Constance. An All Saints jumper with bulletholes for the thumbs and a potato sack texture was just the gunshot for my attention.

  4. i love your hat, plus that jacket of yours is just gorgeous. the pictures of you and constance are lovely - it was great to bump into you both at the car boot sale a couple of weeks ago. well, apart from the fact that i looked so awful with my frizzy hair, bad skin and 'it's okay i'm just going to the car boot sale and nobody i know will see me' clothes, hehe. xx
