I definetly love the stripes! I'm looking forward summer, 'cause I'm fed up with this cold weather, scarves, gloves, coats! I want some sun, and fluid clothes like Lacoste, Jill Stuart, L.A.M.B, and Sacai.

Carrie!!! How are you doing my dear?
I am sorry I gave up on blogging for so long, school and London Fashion Week were quite hectic... but I'm trying to go back to being a decent blogger now ;)

I don't even know if I wished you happy new year! (god, I am a fail).

Anyway, your blog is still as great as ever, and I hope I will find time to analyse it more regularly ;)

Since I'm little bit thin and stripes makes me thinner than before, I don't really like wearing stripes. But.. The Jonathan Saunder's may suits to me!
Great finding..
It's really inspire me a lot <3
