'I have direction'.
'Yeah, towards the mall'.
Okay, so this outfit isn't an Alaïa, but I've still taken inspiration from the wardrobe of major 90s style icon, Cher Horowitz. When it comes to nailing the tartan trend, Cher is anything but clueless. A garment with echoes of Cher's most famous ensemble is doing something right, and when I saw this skirt during a shift at Sainsbury's, I couldn't resist the thick woven fabric, leather belt detail and gentle a-line shape. So I guess I've taken it upon myself to become Sainsbury's brand ambassador- have a look at their tartan next time you stock up on your bread and milk.
To accessorize, I added a black scarf comprised of soft, fuzzy loops. Clueless is full of fluffy fashion, and this scarf is kinda like the daytime alternative to Cher's feather boa look.
I admit that Cher isn't really a leather jacket gal. In fact, when you add my coat into the mix, it's more like Clueless meets The Matrix. I decided to add a grungey edge to her preppy look; a touch less Beverley Hills and a bit more Northern Quarter. At £20, it's not the cheapest charity shop item, but the genuine leather and faux fur collar would be heaps more on the high street.
This shoot was taken when I travelled up to Manchester. This is where Georgie lives. She's my friend because we both know what it's like for people to be jealous of us. (Merely a bit of Clueless banter, of course). Georgie and I wandered the labyrinthine streets of the Northern Quarter finding places for our blog shoots. The location featured is on Tib Street. We found it by accident when I was forced to leave the first location after a group of friendly but distracting teenagers kept shouting 'Iggy' at me. Ugh, as if.
The more eagle-eyed reader may have clocked my new hair. I bleached it myself. Expect the obligatory review blog post soon!
