Style | Lace & Fur

Psynopsis Streetstyle London LFW
Ella and I both enthusiastically bought a 2nd hand knitting machine after our Saint Martins knitting course. (She also prints on her knitting, which produces really interesting effects) . But when I met her after the Bora Aksu show I did not tell her that my independent knitting projects since then have been a valley of tears and a mountain of frustration… (well, you can't really jump at someone you meet at fashion week and start complaining about your DIY projects - though I could, I could...). Neither did I mention how much I like her lace skirt and tied fur collar. But I do! (…and next time we meet I hope we find time to talk knitting.)

Valley of tears and mountains of frustrations seems to be the story of my life these days. You'll get the hang of it...we both will :) And I'm really digging your friends skirt.

The lace skirt is gorgeous, and I really love the collar.

It looks really tough, but am so impressed with your knitting projects so far. I can't wait to see what's coming next, so I'm glad you're not giving up!

We may be like two peas in a pod. I've recently started learning something new and I am so unbelievably frustrated that I'm not excellent at it it's driving me crazy. Maybe even to the point were I obsess and overthink it, and therefore seem to royally eff it up! I Methinks we probably set our expectations of ourselves much too high, and we're probably doing fine in reality.
Anyhoo enough of my rant..... yes I love the leather, lace and fur textures and she's such a pretty thing

I like this look - lace + fur = cool. I know what you mean - you run into someone and have so much to catch up on but is it the time/place - argghh! You 2 need a coffee date (-:
