Rip it up

I LOVE rips and shredding at the moment! Today I'm wearing 'rips on rips' with my lovely Raquel Allegra ripped cashmere jumper, 3x1 ripped jeans and my NEW Gucci loafers!

Raquel Allegra is a recent discovery for me. She pioneered the shredding technique after her laborious experiments creating full length webbed cocoons out of oversized vintage t-shirts. This technique is now synonymous with her brand. I love the contrast of the cashmere and rips in this jumper, her garments are always really unique. My jumper has sold out but you can buy some of Raquel Allegra's other things here.

Ripped jeans continue to be big for the coming seasons, invest in a pair now! Mine are by great US brand 3x1. For something readily available this side of the pond go for Levi 501 CT's. I have just snapped up a pair! They are the perfect slim boyfriend that can be worn up-sized for a looser fit, true-to-size for a regular fit, or down-sized for a slimmer more modern fit. They were re-released today... last time they sold out in 24 hours, so get in there quickly! Watch this space for a post on them soon...

For a pop of colour I'm wearing my recent investment, Gucci loafers, a style classic... which (I hope) will last me a lifetime... or until I get bored of them!

I really love this latest trend!  I've been gagging to wear trainers with EVERYTHING for years and now I finally can.  I love the Philippe Model white trainers that I wear with anything from shorts to dresses.  I also love anything with glitter and sparkle so the Golden Goose mid boot is perfect, especially nice with a maxi dress, every time I wear these I get loads of compliments!

Don't be scared to team these trainers with your day to day wardrobe, don't think too much about matching as they really do go with everything, just wear them with confidence!  Always look for a trainer that has the hidden wedge, you get a heel without even realising it, some of them have built in wedges of about 2inches! Below are some of my faves...
