Capuchin Crypts - Rome…
Take me back… 💜
//Slip On Skater Shoes have taken over//
As well as the traditional pool slider, slip on trainers have made a big comeback this year and are everywhere at the moment. If like me you are a bit of a skate rat at heart, then you’ve maybe been rocking your Vans slip ons for years but it’s nice to have a more chic version of this Cali classic.
I picked up some Tiki 2 High Vamp Skaters from Topshop the other week on my way to work as I have my long awaited holiday in the sun next month and needed some decent summery shoes. Since I’ll be doing a lot of walking for my 4 day trip I knew it’d be best to get some trainers. Now, I’m the queen of casual, I have plenty trainers but I was looking for a nice chic alternative and knew these would work with some of the outfits I have planned. I love the mock croc upper making it look that bit more luxe.
Online they state the colour as white but they are definitely more of an off white as you can see in comparison to the white elastic inserts. This works for me as they aren’t as blinding and still look box fresh after a few outings.
Online reviews state a few people with blistered feet but many have persisted and state they do soften up and just need to be worn in. I’ve been wearing mine round the house with socks on to soften up the heel and widen them slightly for a better fit.
For £20 I don’t think there is much to moan about and I find them pretty comfortable and solid for such a reasonable price. I just need to dodge any dirt or watch my dog doesn’t drag me round the park in them in the meantime. Let’s hope I can keep them clean till July!
//Spell & The Gypsy Collective//
When it comes to fashion my roots lie in good old fashion rock and roll, from pre teen I’ve dressed alternative in some way whether it be a rockabilly inspired belted pencil skirt and tucked in band tee or studded side slit punk tees or pvc skirts and fishnet dresses, I think I’ll always be an alternative little creep, I like it that way :)
Summer is a time to have fun with another rock inspired look taking it back to the old school and going all out hippy Woodstock bohemian rock! Get some Grateful Dead chapped on and get snapping up some of my favourite brand of the moment, Spell & The Gypsy Collective.
Firstly, what a badass name! An Australia based brand so shipping and import tax won’t come cheap for us Brits but one look at their online store will have you weak at the knees.
From native inspired prints to floral bell bottoms to grungey sleeveless tees, these guys made a big impact on Coachella this year and it’s easy to see why. Even my girl crush Vanessa Hudgens was snapped wearing the red playsuit pictured above, which I know need to stalk her and steal it from her body, obvz.
