The Alexander Wang effect

SO FAR this year Alexander Wang has had me wearing painted sweaters, leather culottes and now stomach-showing shirts. To say I'm a slave to fashion is probably - and embarassingly - the understatement of the century (although I'll never be converted to those leather gloves). But hey, HashtagBloggerLyf and all that. I probably lose a few internet points for not actually selling my home for his Spring 2014 PJ-suits, but here's hoping the Google Gods will forgive me. If all it takes to be on trend this season is a pair of Birks, some pyjama shorts and a few undone buttons then consider me sold..but don't expect me to pay full price.

Wearing Abercrombie and Fitch (yes, really)

The sun has been out for the past three days now - I think that must be a new record. To celebrate, I decided to throw on one of my first dresses of the year in the form of this Abercrombie long sleeve that arrived a few days ago. Remember my last wardrobe adventure with A+F jeans? Turns out they also make some great quality, nicely priced dresses too - with a very flattering fit if I do say so myself. There were so many choices on the site (jersey, lace, knit - you name it) that I wound up choosing a few other pieces to help me settle into spring too, including a light-washdenim shirt and woven shift dress. Not a piece of leather or black in sight ladies and gentlemen. Which begs the question: am I finally becoming the girly girl my grandmother always wanted me to be? Probably not. The legs might be out but the messy hair and biker jackets will never leave me - even in this scorching English heat. Who am I kidding..?

My first pair of Abercrombie jeans

LAST year the only denim item in my wardrobe was a pair of well-loved black skinnies (complete with one too many rips) and leather was the main topic of interest. Fast forward one year and - whilst I'm still in the leathers and donning the ripped knees - my collection of jeans has grown almost exponentially. Inevitable for a girl with over seventy jackets, sure, but you wouldn't believe who makes my perfect pair. Acne? Nope. Allsaints? Not quite. Try Abercrombie & Fitch.

Whilst I will admit that I don't often venture into their physical stores, I have become partial to eyeing up the odd sweater and essential basic online. But the best thing they offer? The jeans. Not only are they a seriously good quality product for a insane price (which means I can pay my rent for once), but the waistband never digs in or sits awkwardly so it's always flattering - which means no more muffin top and no more yanking up my jeans in the middle of street (which you know, happens a lot when you're the size of an eight year old). I've fallen in love with the A+F super skinnies in the lighter blue, but there's practically every other wash and colour you could ever want on site and in store. That denim collection I mentioned? It's about to get a whole lot bigger.
