Zara is usually a hit and miss store. I can like some of their pieces but sometimes they have less beautiful things. But, NO. Their new SS15 collection blows every other competitor out of the window. There is not a single item I item I can fault. Try me. It is heavily based on 70's fashions which is a brilliant concept.

If anyone is feeling particulary generous, just take your pick at any item and my birthday is in 35 days.

The GRAMMY/BAFTA Review 2015

When I was born did my parents know or guess that I was going to be a fashion critic? No. I think they thought I was going to be a cleaner or a proffesional tennis player. We all know where those dreams failed and ended, years ago. (If I get a steamer the cleaner ambition may still be on the cards as a hobby). 

Today I am taking up that challenge - I am a fashion critic, kind of. Anyway, the BAFTAs and the GRAMMYs were seriously close to each other - like who does that? How can the two major television reality awards events (sub another of the Kardashians getting married) be practically on the same night? How is one expected to make that decision? I chose the BAFTAs because I was not ready to commit to being awake at unearthly hours. Obviously I caught up on the GRAMMYs through Vogue and YouTube. 

I attempted to keep a thought-track through both events but I failed miserably. Here's a rough idea though.

  • Stephen Fry hosted the BAFTAs and he was a real cracker. His use of metaphors is big-time competition for will.i.am.
  • Rita Ora's makeup at the GRAMMYs was absolutely beautiful and I now feel a need to have glitter falling out of my eyelids all the time.
  • Miley Cyrus had more clothes on than Madonna. I don't know if that's a good thing or not. Nut she looked good.
  • Gwen Stenfanie pulled some major fashion stops and I think she looked like gothic Alice in Wonderland. So pretty great.
  • Nicki Minaj knows what the GRAMMYs are about. She knows how to work that booty and look cute and sassy and like a huge piece of eye-candy. 
  • Eddie Redmayne and Stephan Hawking should definitely become my new best friends. Or just take me under their wings. It would be much appreciated.
  • Some of the dresses at the BAFTAs make my eyes water - partially with happy appreciative slightly jealous tears. Also just out of dispair.

SS15 Jeans Inspo.

If you need me anytime in the next few month, you will probably find me crying under some duvet in some dark room in the middle of the deepest forest in Narnia. You won't find me. The reason I will most definitely de there is because Narnia welcomes those who are upset because of clothes related melodramas. The White Queen gets it.

So, there's this boy in my class. Unnamed. Whenever he speaks or just enters the room, I get a sort of sinking feeling, like a hurricane or a really fast washing machine in my stomach. He just happens to be one those, you know. Like, when he speaks, he really goes for the overexaggerated French accent and remind everyoen 24/7 how he has been to every country on the earth at least three times and has a trip to Jupiter planned for next Christms. That type. 

That's the same feeling I got when I realised that within 9 hours the absolute nicest pair of jeans ON SALE had suddenly sold out. Not pleasant.
