I need starch


Just one version of a winter look making a very regular appearance these days – denim shirt layered with a knit, beanie and boots.  The dark lips and nails are permanent.  I just need starch to keep that collar up…

Sometimes weekends just rock and this one was one of those ones – friends’ birthday and engagement celebrations, tree decorating and Christmas movie day with the family.  All to the soundtrack of The Complete James Brown Christmas, Barenaked for the Holidays and of course a bit of the Bublé Christmas –it’s all Christmas over here…

sydney knit – Rock & Rags c/o USC (ON SALE! & last worn here)
denim shirt – c/o Next (last worn here)
jean – Zara (first worn here)
boot – Zara (last worn here)
beanie – Quicksilver
watch – c/o Guess, clutch – Kurt Geiger
burgundy #2 nail polish – Nail Girls c/o Debenhams

coat- model’s own c/o Infindigo 





P.S.  Even Mr K feels the shame of that last catalogue cheeseball pose…

    You look so cosy yet still to stylish! When I’ve got that many layers on I look a bit Michelin man-ish!!! You look great though xxx

      me too nancy – just had to resole and heel them – cost as much as buying the boots almost but at least they’ll last a bit longer now

    I kinda love the way your collar rebels against your will and I certainly love your knit and skinny jeans combos! Can’t get enough of them with or without the beanie! <3

    Huge hugs to my beloved Karhu!
