Skirts with Braces

I like the look of skirts with braces. I like that you could wear this look to the office or on a day out.  It can be really sexy or casual and dressed down.

Hooded Cloaks

I'm still on that 'winter coat' thing. I now want a hooded cloak, in a stylish cut, not too long and drapey. I'm being inspired by Harry P, The Volturi,  bit of Star Wars and that Scottish Widow off the Lloyds TSB adverts.  Medieval pageantry as well.....?  Hoods up babees.

Lindsey Thornburg makes some awesome cloaks, check them out below. They're very modern, fresh and updated but I still want a more traditional black, possibly velvet one. I want to maximise my moody atmospheric power.

Waxed Barbour jacket

I've been wanting a Barbour waxed jacket for a while. I've had a quilted one for ages, to the point its almost a trademark, but I want a waxed one next, hopefully in navy.  Belstaff and Burberry also do good waxed jackets but right now, I'm all about Barbour.  Yes, I am being premature in talking about coats but summer's been so erratic and I've been wanting this jacket for over a year, ha.

Asics trainers, just a little bit different

I saw a Japanese guy wearing Asics trainers on the bus the other day and was definitly liking the look. I had to come home and recommend it as a trend.  They don't suit everyone but if they work for you, pls wear them =  guaranteed shoe appreciation.
