Winter Cut

studded motor jacket Vintage leather biker jacket Carrie Underwood Studded leather jacket Black vintage leather jacket Carrie Underwood Creepers Black leather jacket
Jacket: Vintage. Jeans (DIY knee hacked): Zara. Creepers: Underground Originals. Hat: Trash and Vaudeville. Jumper: Zara. Bag: Chanel.  Post sponsored by Dick's Sporting Goods. 

Last Wednesday I checked out (wait for it) Carrie Underwood's CALIA by Carrie Underwood fitness/lifestyle clothing line.  Michael is a closet country fan (sorry Michael) so this was the perfect opp for me to ask him to attend 'to take some pics' - knowing full well that he was grinning behind the lens.   

I was impressed by the quality and prints in the line (out March 2015 and avail exclusively at Dick's Sporting Goods).   

An unexpected bonus: Being the owner of fresh flowers in the middle of winter...

20 Things You Don't Know About Me

Coat: Sandro. Pants: Zara. Platform loafers: Mango.   Photo taken from this post

I have a half sister and one brother
My parents separated when I was around 5 and I was raised by my Mum
Since small I always knew that I would end up in New York but I didn't know why
I grew up in Tottenham behind the Tottenham Hotspurs football (soccer) ground
Don't laugh but I am convinced that I saw a UFO when in my teens
I have skydived 14,000 feet above the clouds
My Mum, Dad, brother and I were all born in August with back to back dates 
'Sailing' by Christopher Cross is my favorite song
I only wear 'Aromatics Elixir' perfume by Clinique
I used to have extremely accurate premonitions of my future
I used to work at Sainsbury's supermarket deli counter part time 
As a kid I was oddly terrified of a puppy that was given to me once. Mum had to give it away
I still have my old flat (apartment) in London
I went to an all girls Convent school and was taught by nuns
Michael and I met by pure accident online as complete strangers
It still hits me that I actually live in New York
The flat that I grew up in was haunted by a 'friendly spirit'.  I felt the presence when alone and my Mum later admitted to having the identical experience when alone in the same room
I hate avocados
I was a child actress in London for a few years and I STILL miss performing on stage
I got my green card about four days ago after years of fees and paperwork!

Go Big Or...

fur collar coat

Finding an old coat with a mannish fur collar makes me stupid happy.

platform loafers Chanel 14C red bag platform creepers polka dot shirt Chanel red classic flap bag Camel Coat NARS Dragon Girl
Coat: Vintage. Loving the pimpness of this blue collar take or Ellen Tracy and ditch the belt. High waist jeans: American Apparel. Loafers: Mango (yes they have a lace up version) or check out these bad boys by MSGM (on sale). Bag: Chanel. Try Rebecca Minkoff (on sale).  Lipstick: NARS 'Dragon Girl' (my fave red right now)

The coat's battered, rough around the edges and several sizes too big.

Of course that means it's perfect.

ps. Check out my Instagram pics from last night's Selma movie premier.
