panic on the streets of london panic on the streets of birmingham


clockwise from left: tee by Rodebjer, $100; ring by kimberley mcdonald, £3,530; clutch by yves saint laurent, £820; frilly vest by topshop, £16; pleat trousers by lanvin, £560; marc jacobs heels, £425

I cannot describe to you the desperation I am currently feeling to buy myself this pile of clothes (or hell, to have thrown at me in the least dignified and most degrading way necessary). searching for the perfect pair of pegleg trousers on the high street is fruitless and I think my best option is a train ticket to Cos in London.

I found a quote on
flora's box which makes the reality that it will not be at least 15 years until I can afford such beauties mildly less painful:

' lack of money is no obstacle. lack of an idea is an obstacle.'
by ken hakuta.

It's true, I'm on a similar hunt for those pants, so far I've tried Zara, they have a few options but nothing perfect.

The top, ring, shoes and trousers are to die for. I could live without the topshop top and the YSL clutch I think, but they do bring a lovely element to this look.
And I'm sure you'll be able to afford this sooner than in 15 years, maybe 10? he he

oh, i love it alll!

especially that adorable little eyelash tee & the brilliant lanvin (i die) trousers.

oh yes & i found these;

that i thought you might like (winkwink) whilst browsing & debating myself wether cheap knockoffs are really the way to go no matter how lovely the fringed wang ones im lusting after are...


ps, not sure if it was intentional but the title of this seems to fit the both of us perfectly, though im hoping its not as hellish over there as its been here, hee! love you doll!

Kylie said...
