Saint Laurent Girl

 The amazing punk-themed MET ball this week got me thinking about Saint Laurent's shock AW13 Paris show again, I adored every second of the catwalk. Not only was it full of attitude and all things grunge, but really spoke out to us 'normal' girls who can't afford a whole designer outfit without having to rob a bank. Hedi Slimane controversially pushed the 90s bar, which we have been seeing on the streets for a few seasons now, onto the catwalks of the fashion capital. The creative director seemed to be promoting our generation of style rather than his collection, quite literally stomping a statement. LOVE IT. It's actually possible to imitate some of the very looks with thrift and highstreet buys, as you can see I've already been having a play with my own wardrobe.

I'm so, so chuffed with this shirt I found in Paris back in January for only 5 euros! Yes, Saint Laurent gets me all excited about wearing this in the Autumn but I'm looking forward to Summer with this red beauty too. It's quite thick so doubles up as a jacket, will look great with some cut-offs and it really does add some oomph to an all-black outfit like so. I think it's also going to be my festival staple for a few messy weekends too. Shall I stop getting excited about a shirt now? It's a bit strange right.
