I used to be everything but minimal, but thanks to an urge to shun old insecurities and to the oh-so-right monochrome palette, I decided it was high time I found my glam and sleek self. Getting old, am I? Bah.
Apparently, church-inspired looks are going to be quite a biggie for next autumn/winter - which is not why I'm wearing this naughty nun's dress now, but still. A subtly opulent, yet very simple gothic look is one of the best ways to make use of a couple of rare and beautiful items in our wardrobes, as well as an excuse to take the current favourite Docs for a ride. I did just that this weekend, for a head-banging jump-around retro birthday party. And thus we arrive at today's burning questions and confessions. Where do you stand with trans-gender style twists? What would you be, and what would you wear at a Vicars & Tarts do?
As I said, after all those years of teeth chattering, I went on a mission to find portable warmth in cool coats, and found something I did not expect. Co-modelling some serious Wellensteyn is Sir Shebi, number one rock star, treasurer, high priest and chief executioner among other things, of his lot (let's leave it at that), with his own pricey little branded coat. He said to tell you it's not a bottle warmer he's wearing.
