Its Autumn, Darling

Finally finally Darlingclothes.com have their Autumn Winter 2011 look book online. Do you think it was the almost instant switch to Autumn that seems to have happened over the last weekend?!


For those of you who have never heard of Darling, i would really recommend you have a little nosey. I fell in love with the label a year ago when i came across it in Hoopers. The'yre a London based company who have been on the scene since 2008. And if you are the sort of person who likes timeless, British design for a really good price, they'll be right up your street.  I got my Christmas party dress from them last year, and i have worn it a good few times since.  


There style is quite different from anything else you might find in Carlisle and i think that's what i like about them.  As there items are quite classic and not too fashion forward, they are a bit more of a blank canvas i think; you know something you can do a lot with?  


If it sounds like your thing have a sneaky peek at the look book online, details below.  After seeing that i dare you not to be inspired...it almost made me want to curl my hair and wear some little lace gloves!

Everyone Likes a Look-ey Like

Its true. Whilst i am not generally a fan of a blatant designer rip off, i couldnt help but noticing that Republic now stock Mel Shoes. To be honest, its a brand i've only recently heard of but they really remind me of Vivienne Westwoods Anglomania jelly style shoes from Spring Summer. Plus they are but a snippet of the price. AND given that it is generally wet here in Cumbria, one cant go wrong with a shoe of the wipable variety that isnt a welly. 


Definetly worth having a goosey gander at, online or in The Lanes…

Here We Go

I end this week feeling like i could have actually progressed a little further in my blog shaped travels.  Due to being on holiday from Monsoon towers for the last week i had planned to get this show on the road - something i have been toying about getting around too for some time. Truth is, i think i am little apprehensive.  That and the fact that i thought this would all be a doddle. But i keep fannying about and tweaking and twonking at things.  


Ever since i got my first job in a little sweetshop in the middle of nowhere, before i moved to Carlisle, i have always loved to go shopping.  I am not a fan of group shopping, or even boyfriend-shaped wanderings through town. My shopping needs to be solo and undisrupted. Do you know what i don't actually always need or want to buy anything. In fact most of the time i just like to wander about, taking in whats going on. Meandering through my favourite shops or sometimes just sitting in costa and watching what other people are wearing.  


It was whilst doing this the other day, and flipping through some magazines that i think i have decided that i would sort of like this blog to be about my ramblings, but also a sort of style diary for Carlisle...or anyone i find here even if they're not from here but wouldn't mind me taking a quick pic of them.  Work in progress...like the rest of this...








Promise it will all look more interesting when i figure out how to use the camera properly…
