Best of… February 12

It’s uncharacteristically cold at the moment (for the UAE) and I’ve been thinking a lot about my leather jacket. I’m peeved with myself for leaving it hanging in my wardrobe at home when I could be rocking it all over Dubai next weekend.

Maybe I should get a new one.

Mine is more streamlined than this one (via Fashion Toast) and I really could do with a biker-y roughed up one too, couldn’t I? Yeeeesssssssss.  Rumi’s is by Philip Lim, or how about this one from All Saints:

Equally perfect.

Other things I don’t have (and could be keeping me warm):  The perfect casual blazer, or this slouchy cardigan, via Expresso.  Also, are top knots going to be everywhere in 2012 this like they were last year?  Or is everyone bored with them now?  I love them.  Feb Qin at the disco1

Converse are another thing I continue to see everywhere.  I’m trading mine in for a shiny new pair of these soon.  I ordered a pair of Bensimons (the French girl’s answer to Converse) on Shopbop recently, but was underwhelmed when they arrived. The size wasn’t even right so I couldn’t give them a proper chance (they are very small fitting so go up a size if you’re ordering)!

Hello Jules.  I love you.

Except if we met, that's not what I’d say at all.  Instead, I’d be busy devising an evil plan to cut off all her hair and turn it into fabulous extensions.

Oh look, a cosy jumper and a cup of tea (via Hey Pretty Thing). I’m exaggerating about the weather here- we still have highs of about 20-22°C but there is somewhat of an icy breeze.  Okay, exaggerating again.  Sorry.

Thanks for following! :) I am now preparing a couple of posts about how to combine the 'boyfriend jacket' and a black leather jacket (I plan a trip to Germany in April). I'll let you know when I am done as I would love to have your take on the matter, given your sense of style! :) xoxo
