Polonecks remind me of being a child and wearing weird nylon-y ones to school. I remember
how I would fold the top over twice to make it lower. On a grown up me, however, I like to pull
it up to right under my chin, to make sure it's covering my whole neck. Maybe I'm now more
aware of the possibility of a double chin... luckily I have long enough locks to eliminate
these possibilities from day to day as most of my neck/chest/back is normally flooded in
hair. And you can tell that my job as a Beauty Editor is finally having an effect- I'm wearing make up you can actually see. This is my favourite lip pencil from MAC in Magenta which I think compliments the blue.
The navy of the poloneck in question stood out to me in Uniqlo- I've never bought anything
from there before. It was such a traditional (almost school uniform-like blue, ironically) navy,
and so unashamed in it's boring-ness that I saw it as fitting into my almost all monochrome
current wardrobe without any hassle. And none indeed as demonstrated above.
The H&M with MMM collaboration starts today. I think last week I decided I would get up
very early to miss the rush. It's now 11:18 and I still haven't left the house. I think the thought
of being somewhere extremely busy with fashion-crazy shoppers put me off. I'd rather go
tomorrow and see what's left in a calmer manner. Anyway, since it's a Maison Martin Margiela
day I thought I'd post these photos I took of a girl outside the SS13 show in Paris.
The cap, the hair tucked into her jumper, the simple black sweater with black tailored trousers
and a big neckalce. This girl was a dream. Such a simple look, with no 'stand out' piece but I
couldn't stop trying to figure out what made it look so good. Maybe it's a French nonchalance
Also, I recognise her from somewhere- can anyone help me out?
Model Marte Mei van Haaste was asked by Dazed to document her version of fashion
week/month SS13. I love the outcome- the side you never normally see- the late nights, the
models sleeping on floors just to get ten minutes shut eye, the hair extensions, the tube
journeys to castings and fittings and the messing around to pass the time. After all, most of
their job is waiting.
There are so many from this collection, I tired to edit them down to give a good over view
