Clothes are my religion

Hey people, i know it’s been a while again, i have been snowed in literally with everything! As i was been spending loads of hours over the past month looking for new interesting brands i discovered a very interesting brand called religion. I looked for an official website but i couldn’t find anything out there. Most of the clothing was on major networks and some on independent online stores. Anyway i love discovering brands like that because  i think the make a difference. I’m tired of all the high street major retailers copying each other style, its constant never ending war! Instead of going for the same look and trend all major companies should hire talented designers and come up with something fresh!

Liberty Jacket sale!

Hey i know it’s been a while since i last posted but i have been extremely busy doing nothing, i was on holiday for Christmas, had an excellent time! I went shopping on boxing day and i must have spent at least four hours checking out all the major fashion retailers. I went to most of the shops on the high street and looked at all the items on sale to see if i could find anything for me. Unfortunately i had to leave most of the shops because the queues were just massive, i would have spent at least an hour waiting for just one item i wanted to buy. Although i like Christmas shopping and i like going out and looking at shops most of the time due to high demand i cannot find what i want, that’s why id rather go out window shopping and then do the actual shopping online. Most e-shops have more stock online than in the shops. I have been looking for a nice casual jacket lately, and i actually found exactly what i was looking for at Reiss today, I wanted a pea coat style jacket but i didn’t want the traditional look, i was looking through the jackets and i found this liberty jacket by reiss for half price, most of the times are on sale( 50%) so if you want to buy something do it now while the sale is on!

The Distressed Look And The Copycats (brogues and toecaps)

I have been looking for a new pair of shoes to spend my money on this Christmas, however i still haven’t found exactly what i want, I’m close but still not sure. I went for a walk the yesterday and i must of went in every single clothing store on the high street looking at shoes and clothes. I quite like the new all saints range, specifically the toecap brogues that look all distressed and warn out are really nice and I’m seriously considering a pair of all saints toecap brogues shoes this Christmas. I have also spotted some nice shoes on the office website, again toecap shoes that look a little bit like the all saints ones however the haven’t got that distressed vintage look, instead the toecap shoes look brand new and have a really nice tanned leather colour. The final pair that i have been considering for a while are toecaps from River island, i like them but the look too much like the all saints ones, its as if all saints designed the original distressed look brogues and toecaps and then everybody in the fashion industry started copying them! it’s true! is it just me??. Anyway so yeh  you can see all the shoes pictured below and i have included a poll so you guys can vote for your favorite pair. I like them all and i had the money i would get them all, but for now i can only go for one!!I want you opinions.

Vintage Worn out shoes!

Does anybody like this new trend? You are all probably aware of the fact that the “worn out/washed out” vintage look is back in action all the major retailers are copying each others designs! I wish Fashion labels didn’t do that, however that’s how trends are created. A label comes up with a fresh original look and then the designs are almost plagiarized by other labels. So i’ve looking into this “worn out” look and i dont know what to think, Some of the companies have really nailed the look and some of them are just not getting it! Some of the stuff like the worn out jeans and tops are a little bit too much for me, however i love the worn out vintage shoes!

Vintage Bag

I have always loved the old school vintage leather bags, the ones that your high school teacher would probably carry arround. I never had one but i think now is the time to buy one. I have always used backpacks that are actually quite practical but the look really bad. So i was thinking about investing in a nice leather bag. Leather bags are really big just now and men’s just use them as a fashion accessorie. In my case ill probably combine both as i usually tend to carry loads of things with me, a nice bag would be the perfect accessory for me just now. These are the two styles i want to go for. The first one has the classic tan dry leather look which i love. It’s also quite simple and has an amazing colour. The second one is more vintage-shinny leather, proffesor bag look. I like the second option too as it has a lot of detail( pockets, straps etc). Which one do you think i should go for? Let me know what you think…
