February One

It was about this time last year when I started to dress only in black and white, with the allowance of colour being an American Apparel hoody.

It started off by coincidence; a lot of my new clothes just happened to be black and white, but then I really got into it, and consciously started only buying clothes in these two colours. It lasted for a fair while, but it kind of felt like I was wearing a uniform - black leggings/leather skinnies with oversized white t-shirts and vests with lots and lots of silver jewellery, and usually accompanied by my Alexander Wang bag. 

Ah, the thoughts of these outfits take me back to Spring/Summer 2010 (totally not on trend, I know) and hanging round Liverpool One after finishing work, then walking up Upper Parliament Street in the sun with the "Creative Collective" of School and Manesty's Lane.

Anyway, I phased myself out of it towards the end of the Summer, and by the time I moved to Amsterdam, I was back to normal, and not feeling averse to including colour into my wardrobe.

Not that I wear pure flamboyant colours - if I wear a bright shoe, I'll try and dress the rest of my outfit down.

Saying that, I've got this bright turquoise Nike SB Rucksack I use for work, and that kinda goes with nothing, so I have to discount that from any sartorial choices.

However, over the past couple of days, I've felt myself slipping back into it this black and white haze, mixed in with quite a lot of grey; I think you can get the gist of the colour palette.

Anyway, I had it in my mind tonight to create a little outfit post, and would you believe it, it's all black and white. 

A.L.C Shirt
Miu Miu Purse
Chloe Sevigny for Opening Ceremony Boots (I'd take these over the JC Litas anyday)
T By Alexander Wang Bandage Skirt
Dominic Jones Ring (Absolutely love his sh't)
Mac Lippy - Not sure of the name

I like the subtle sexiness of the shirt, contrasting against the beautifully ugly O.C platforms. The shirt is very sleek; very Michelle Pfieffer in Scarface. 

On a side note, I've had a busy few days; my gorgeous Mama has been visiting me, so haven't had a massive amount of time to do proper posts or any kind of outfits, and then my gorgeous girlfriends are visiting over the weekend so again, I'll have another busy few days with them.

Hopefully tomorrow I might be able to put together some kind of outfit post, I've managed to buy a fair few things over the past couple of weeks - Hello Monki sales!




  1. I am SO jealous that you have access to a Monki store Lauren! Really can't wait for it to come to the UK :)
