BRILLIANT OR BONKERS?

I walk the line...

Unique. Individual. Distinctive. These are words that I'm pretty sure every fashion-enthusiast strives towards.

This looks bonkers. I can't pull this off. I look like I have 14 cats. These are words that I'm pretty sure every fashion-enthusiast has felt at least every once in a while. Or I do anyway.

GIRL CRUSH MEETS SPORTS LUXE

An ode to Emma Watson and tracksuits.

Sweatshirt: ASOS, Trousers: Zara, Clutch: Zara, Shoes: New Look, Cuff: River Island

Emma Watson has been so on point lately. She never puts a single perfectly-clad-in-Jimmy-Choo foot wrong. I mean, every outfit is like BAM - another one knocked out the ball park! For Pete's sake, the girl has a wardrobe so good she makes me talk in sports metaphors.

PRIMARY SUSPECTS

Jacket: Mango, Jeans: Marks&Spencer, Sandals: Next, Vest: Topshop, Clutch: Zara, Necklace: H&M

Just to clarify for those less-warped-than-I individuals who don't watch unhealthy amounts of TV crime drama, the title's funny/mildly amusing coz it sounds like 'prime suspect', and I'm wearing primary colours. Hilarious. And also to clarify, yes that is me in the photos wearing ABSOLUTELY NO BLACK - I know, it's an Easter miracle!

FASHION AND FEMININITY...(AND BALLS?)

When I tell people that I've recently started a  fashion blog, there seem to be a few stock reactions. One of which is the super supportive, super encouraging , super friend response of 'That's great!' - and to all y'all who did that, I send you virtual cuddles coz you da best. Another standard reaction making itself apparent however, is the quizzical head tilt, the 'don't you think that's a bit clich├ęd?' side look. The look that comes before the question, 'Isn't that a bit girly..?'. What I should really do to these people is get all Catherine Tate up in their grills and say, 'Am I bovvered?', but the honest answer to that question would be YES, Catherine - I kinda am. And it's got me wondering why. What is there to be bovvered about? I am a girl, so what's my beef with my blog being deemed girly or overtly feminine? I've been thinking about it, and I believe my issue here is that I don't see fashion (and therefore a blog about fashion) as feminine - or at least not in the sense implied through that pointed tilt-of-head.
