Ann, please meet Junya



Ann Demeulemeester boots, Mary Meyer drop-crotch pants, American Apparel long-sleeve tee, Junya Watanabe shrug.

This outfit pretty much sums up how I dress, fashion-wise, nowadays.

A lot of black, and layers to keep me warm.
Oh and pants definitely, especially drop-crotch for that little extra swagger ;)

My favourite pair of boots from Ann Demeulemeester, the triple rows of laces, the slight faded black leather, it’s all a little goth-meets-mad Maxine! (kudos to luckyme@TFS for coining the last phrase ) These are so iconic and seem to make everything I wear it with, so much better to me. I would have never imagined that it would be possible to be in awe of a pair of boots, but with this pair, I most definitely am!

And my Junya shrug, it’s so incredibly soft and warm with a faux fur collar, which I am so happy with because I just cannot wear real fur. Mostly because of my bunnies and mostly because I am not comfortable with the idea of wearing real fur. It’s really a stylish blanket of sorts and I say this because the fluctuating weather in California has given me a bout of flu and it’s just so comforting to have something cosy to cuddle up to in the car, at the office, at Starbucks..you get the idea. In fact the shrug is laying on my lap right now and I am sporadically squeezing it and sniffing it as I type :P
