Monochrome Lust List

Ziggy Denim - Autumn 13

Love is an understatement when it comes to describing how I feel about the Back To The Future trilogy. Michael J Fox captured my heart in a way no other grown man did (apart from Will Smith in Fresh Prince of Bel Air; if you can really call either of them 'grown men' at the time these were filmed) and so for obvious reasons I am totally loving the Ziggy Denim autumn 13 lookbook, which is BTTF inspired.

Ziggy does things in this collection that sets them apart from the regular denim heavy-weights, with a new take on prints and a mass array of colours. I am particularly looking out for the two-tone button front denim shirt, grey acid wash high wasited skirt and the denim + gold varsity jacket - drool! Denim doesn't feature strongly enough in my wardrobe and this collection could just be the thing to change that. Plus the first image - wow - talk about rig city! If wearing Ziggy jeans made you look like that I would buy every pair.

Current Blog Obsession: How Two Live

I am currently completely and absolutely freaking OBSESSED with twins Jess and Stef of the blog 'How Two Live'. Originally only recognised to me as "the girl who wears sun glasses in every one of her pics" I soon realised that there was not one but two (an observation I have failed to make of twins in the past) and then subsequently became equally in fashion-focussed awe of both sisters.

I think the thing I love most about the girls of HTL is they are not afraid to experiment with clashing colours and print-on-print, and in not one single photo do you ever see them wearing a boring monochrome ensemble (okay there was that Shakuhachi leather post, but that was the only one, and it was incredible so it doesn't count). I also love that in most instances their outfits match each other - so although one may look like an outrageous combination on its own when you see the girls together they instantly just work.

A fan of colour myself, I think I feel inspired by the girls because they do exactly what they want with it; and they don't stick to the boring 'normal' conceptions of how things should be worn and aren't afraid to try what others would usually avoid. I wish I had the self-confidence to be even half as fashion forward and self-expressive as they are! Perhaps when I finally get some outfit posts up I will be experiemental with some of the bolder items in my closet but until then, I will continue to swoon over these two.
