Here is why I dislike staying on top of trends: Too much shows, too much collections, too much editorials.. In the end, I am rarely able to remember who certain pieces are by and when they're launched (thank you for saving my brain For example today, I tried recalling Chloe's fall collection where a lot of pussybow blouses were on the runway. I thought it was 2007 but it was actually 2009.
As I turn to Google for answers like I always do and searched.. turns out most pussybow pieces came from 2011 (not 2012 like I recalled.. memory failure again). Well, it didn't bother me that I'm not the trendy bunch though.. Instead, I came to finding lots of great inspirations for my next attempt in wearing these bow adorned pieces (which I have also included as part of this post!) So yes, I'm done with one of my reasons why I refuse to wear every single trend per season.. I read & see.. I am likely to forget and eventually, I simply wear I like. // photos by Christy
clockwise from top left : from the 70s, caroline issa adding a pop of purple to her otherwise monochrome outfit, philosophy di albertta feretti fall 2011 - so retro girly, keeping it casual with denim micros
my steamer broke 3 weeks ago and I haven't been bothered to buy a new one. For now I'll just pretend that I've sat in the car for too long that my clothes wrinkled even when I've just walked out of the door
L-R : Chloe Fall 2009 - One of my favorite collections ever, Jason Wu SS11 - supersized versions, alexa chung proves that a little goes a long way, denim and leather can never go wrong
I've had this scarfs for awhile. Now mcqueen has many variations of the skull illustrations.. This peachy-pink version is my favorite. you can get the high street bargain version at ASOS here

Have to agree, even though I enjoy looking through the collections and editorials, after awhile, it does feel like my mind if being inundated and that's how collection years get muddled, etc. That being said, I like this combination of pussy bow and subtle skull print and then, of course, all the inspirational photographs. Hope you've had a lovely week! xx
