Leafy Demolition

Autumn/Winter always introduces new knitwear characteristics for keeping warm, and while I don't feel that this season has found a new language, the hedonism of layering in a tatty manner resonates with me. My outfit below inverts any sort of price tag hierarchy, with an Unconditional rib knit keeping quiet underneath a vintage glam-nan jacket, and all of this hibernating behind a £3 cardigan from a charity shop. Looking like a fashionable tramp by choice. I've also shared the Autumn/Winter lookbook Etro. Suits with ice pastel scarves and sparky feathers makes for an acid and wilderness inspired season.

I'm also selling a mini feast of former lookbook outfits on my Asos page. Click on 'Charlie's Closet' on the right!

Souls Filled With Crystal Light

Halloween is only a week away, and in preparation I picked up a pair of contact lenses from Vision Direct with a sting to them. Making me look hypnotized by the dark or too much time watching Buffy The Vampire Slayer, I'm almost tempted to wear them under normal circumstances! I've also straightened my hair for a rare play with my normally curly hair. The Slim Definer by Toni & Guy  is a handy tool for giving me something a little more polished and flowing in the locks. As for the outfit, it's raining right now, so I'm in a Topman twist on the poncho!

I was street styled the other day for a great blog project by Vincent Browne. He takes your photo, tackles you with asking the next face a question, and the story go's from there! I obviously wanted to know what a Carnaby Street fellows favoured song by Steps was. Keeping it real. As for the shirt, it's from the amazing My Tribe, where safari, tribal, batman and more find a patchwork home on the dusty denim shirts. Skinny chinos with an oversized shirt has that 90s charm about it. Check out more of My Tribe HERE!

Elegantemente Militare

Attempting to dress a little suave this week, I'm back to my paisley print interests. I tucked the shirt under a military knit that was customized by knuckling some Happyshack studs into the shoulder patches. With skinny chinos and a bootsale blazer that I tasseled with Topman accessories, it's a thrown together look in a smart sort of way! If only my everyday look could come close to the GQ editorial below though. I can;t get enough of the multi textured coat; bold and cutting edge but with something subtly vintage about the shearling feeling. Oh and P.S. I have 'flaming mango' hair now...
