I've moved on...
...to a different domain. Why, what were you thinking? The truth is, I just woke up one day and decided it's time for a change—a metamorphosis, if you will; or, in layman's terms, if Britney can shave her head, then maybe so can I? Nevertheless, it's been a rather handsome 10 years of talking to you, and thank you for putting up with all my moodswings and terrible dad jokes. Fear not! The hormonal imbalance and jokes are more terrible on CUBICLE, see you there.

This is the bag that made my butch(?), German, motorcycle-riding, head tutor for my course go ever so slightly gay by pointing out that he spotted me in Chinatown the other day with it and that he thought the bag was awesome and would I like to go paint my nails with him. Is that a window of opportunity for a bribe swinging open kicking pigeons off that ledge, or is it just me? But in case he happens to stop by, I KID! (Hello Max! 85% or above please)

I’m in love with the bag. My Polish boyfriend loves that I love something Polish and I find that slightly unnerving. Do I really come across as someone who does not appreciate the country I grew up in? Although, looking back on how fast I got into that airplane that departed for London after highschool graduation, I’d guess so. Well let this post be a sort of redemption from all that, because you see, the grey necklace thing is also from Poland! (Thank you CADO Accessories for the generous gift!) If that doesn’t do it, I dunno what will.

NEXT AW10 Pressday

Let’s be honest, I don’t shop at Next, I don’t know what they sell at Next. I had no clue they sold homeware and womenswear and menswear and babieswear – wowza NICE FRUIT DRINKS – until I visited their pressday today. In fact, all I remember from seeing through their window displays while passing by on Oxford Street were mannequins that were dressed to represent women from 20 to 50 and sadly failing, ending up being more nondescript than anything. They were in dire need of a niche, a target audience that didn’t involve something like thirty something mother with a toddler, married to boy-man husband, living in an IKEA store showroom. It seems that for AW they made some very important decisions and decided to please the twenty somethings with twenty something boyfriends, living in an experimental home void of specific taste or style, and maybe with an accidental baby on the way? Kidding with the last bit. The collection was definitely trend-geared, taking ‘hints’ from some hot designer pieces, (see Alexander Wang-esque bucket bag, Mulberry rip-off satchel…) which I personally won’t applaud to, and stuck to themes like the military or the Lace & Leather trends. There is definite progress though, I’d definitely skate through the shop come Autumn, if only to look for more of those awesome crushed-ice fruit drinks they were serving today…

Thank you Tom and Katie (of Jam Social media) for the invite and the lime-fishing-from-Pimm’s-Jug treat!
