About half my designs are controlled fantasy, 15 percent are total madness and the rest are bread-and-butter designs. Manolo Blahnik
Enough whining! You’ve all been terribly sweet with your comments and a big Thank you especially to Christina of Fuji Files for quoting Carine Roitfeld’s recent tweet 'Fashion isn't to make you look attractive, it's to make you look different'! Great reminder!
Now, this skirt is a project I’m not really convinced of… I like the brocade-like, slightly stiff material, but over the knees rarely works for me. So instead of just shortening it I thought I could do some clever gathering action. Now I think it looks even more like a theatre curtain and I’m still not sure I’m going to wear it this summer - BUT I realised I could do the same trick with my Missoni dress which has the tendency to get veeery long after a few hours of wearing.
So the skirt might not be the biggest hit, but the Antonio Marras leather jacket is definitely one of my favourite belongings!
The sun is shining and I'm off to the tennis court. (Still crying over Roger Federer's defeat. These strong, healthy Swedish guys... What can you do against them? Naaafing!!)
Happy Wednesday everyone!
