Best of… May 2013

This month, can we consider how some people are going to look cool no matter what they pull on them in the morning?  Basically, I have a theory that is the reverse of Twain’s the clothes maketh the man.

I read everywhere not to be fooled by messy, thrown-together perfection because it’s not real and it actually requires a lot of effort.  I want to believe that.  If you like, you can imagine that what you’re about to see requires careful planning, regimental wardrobe organisation, designer friends and endless supplies of cash.  You can do that but you’d be fooling yourself.  By you, I mean me.

I’m fairly confident that it’s the people here that are cool and the clothes only by association.  The (wo)man maketh the clothes.  There, I said it.

Thank you for welcome message, Thelma. I ended up having a great time in LA. As for your post, i think it's a mixture of some careful planning and great attitude (and some cash too!). So basically, i think you're just right. But, the thing is that if you have no attitude, then the rest is meaningless. Btw, i didn't know about Christina Caradona and looks like she has tons of great everything :)

There's a L'occitane stand-alone store in Blackpool Mat! You should check it, totally your style.

It was a very welcome return Marta. Can't wait to hear all about LA. I didn't know about her either until this month.
