Lets start the week with my penultimate look from London Fashion Week! This one was made up from a combination of some very old and some brand new pieces. These battered old Converse which I have had for ages, and have been a shade of brown since a festival last Summer. And of course my Loewe Puzzle which I wore everyday throughout LFW as it was the only one I brought with me. The new pieces come in the form of these AMAZING trousers, which I bought in my bid to wear less denim, something I have been predominantly been failing at, but this day was a success! These trousers manage to be completely awkward and also very flattering at the same time, which is what I love so much about them. The second new thing is of course this amazing blazer. I don't think I need to say how much of a blazer fan I am, but I have never owned one like this. The ones I have are always classic, minimal and chic - the three things I love about blazers so much! So a star print one is a welcome bit of fun in the collection, made all the more wearable for me due to the fact it's black and white. Paired with the trousers it was taking the principle of a tailored suit, but in a completely different way through the print and awkward length of the trouser. It was also comfy, so what more could I ask for?
Outfits aside, I thought I would just go for a little ramble about something on my mind recently, it's been keeping me up at night, tossing and turning into the early hours. Not knowing where to turn, who to look to for advice... a hugely important issue... my fringe. Should it stay, or should it go? That is the burning question here, and I leaning towards the latter. I have had my fringe for almost one year, and despite it being SO high maintenance it drives me insane, I have enjoyed the time me and my fringe have had. However, I always feel a bit like it makes my face look rounder, and that freeing my forehead counteracts that problem a little. But of course, any fringe owner will know, the main decision is if you feel up to the pain and misery that goes hand in hand with growing the damn thing out. From the sitting-in-your-eyes stage, to the curtains-that-look-good-on-others-but-awful-on-me, before the torturous almost-behind-the-ear-but-not-quite finale, the whole processes is a ball ache.
Now I don't want you all loosing sleep over this extremely vital issue. So, I have a plan to present; as of this very moment, the fringe is being grown out. And together we shall see how far I get with this. Perhaps in just one weeks time I will give up and head back to the hairdressers for a fortnightly trim... or maybe my true strength and determination will see me through. Dark times await for me and my fringe, but with your support, I am confident we can make it through to a n0-fringe life again.
