Mary Katrantzou and 120 denier tights.

Mary Katrantzou tee: £27, Topshop NEWGEN. Denim circle skirt: £28.50, American Apparel via ASOS. Black chelsea boots: £60, Topshop. Watch: gift, Rotary via H. Samuel.


I wear tights thicker than most people's leggings.


Here is the evidence that I succumbed to one of the NEWGEN tees. It was a three-way tie between this, the Christopher Kane, and the Meadham Kirchhoff, but ease of washing (how frustratingly practical) and lack of creepy doll meant Mary Katrantzou won. Probably the most expensive t-shirt I have ever purchased, but I always end up regretting not getting a piece of the collection so thought I'd be a victim this time round (let's not mention Marni x h+m just yet...).
Last Wednesday I went to Reel Unknown (photos on one of the many disposable cameras I need to get developed) which I cannot recommend enough. I also participated in my first round of proper pub golf last week and I didn't do too badly, next week there's an English social with an Olympics theme so I'm guessing there will be a lot of lycra involved. FUN.


Don't forget about the Liverpool meet up!

  7. This tee was my second choice, but I opted for the JW Anderson one just because I knew I would never have the opportunity to get my hands on something by them again (not that I would for Mary Katrantzou either). I love the first photo and also cannot live without extremely thick tights! It gives me some comfort in knowing that some of the Marni peices didn't fit right, I can always use it as an excuse to myself now! xxxxx

  18. 120 denier be the minimum on tights, I think...I'm a big fan of impossibly thick tights, too.

  26. Good choice, your t -shirt is stunning and Mary Katrantzou is one of the most talented designer, I really love her colour palettes and prints!
