Hurrah! After a couple of days of stalking my postbox my issue of Hot and Cool has arrived! I've been extra excited to see the results of Alice Goddard's (along with her friends Letty, Louise and Theo) hard grafting as I wrote the 'In Praise of Dressing Down' article. Really love Hot and Cool's liberal use of low-tech Word font templates and the editorials are perfect- think Teva sandals, girls sitting on sofas and tying up their laces. It's printed in black and white and rather Corrine Day meets Alisdair McLellan. You can see pictures here. Apparently it's been selling out like hotcakes but it's still available for £4 at B Store, Clare de Rouen, Wardour News and Rococco News in London. For my fellow non-Londoners, you can thankfully buy it online. The amount of hard work Alice and her friends put into the 2nd issue is insane and makes me wonder why I didn't put my gap year to such creative use..
Outfit wise: Margaret Howell caridigan (I dread the day my Mum asks for this back..) with second hand crochet hemmed shorts, new balance 420, 17 lipstick in 'hot chilli', and a small plait in an attempt to counteract the dreaded process of growing out a fringe.
