It’s been months since I’ve bought any fashion for myself. Very little appeals to me at present, but I’m also putting almost every last dollar towards producing my little jewellery collection – launching in five weeks time. Over the last year my work has developed at a rate of knots. I’m extremely excited about the future of my label and although it means I’ve had to sacrifice my love for fashion in order to have undertaken my qualification, it is without a doubt the best decision I ever made for myself. I can’t wait to reveal the new works; it’s just a small debut range to start with but will be added to with regularity.
Tonight while letting myself indulge in some browser window shopping I came across these luxurious lace-up creepers. I’m only recently warming up to derbies and lace-ups; they’ve always felt too much like school shoes to me, but the platform seems to elevate them (!) from that association. I can see these working effortlessly in my wardrobe, perfectly matched back with my blister leather jacket and patina leather leggings, of course.
