Call me immature but whenever I wear these pants I can't help but walk around singing 'You put the lime in the coconut and drink it all up...', this really isn't helped when I'm wearing white on top, only adding to the general coconut vibe and making me dream of days spent lounging around on a beach in the tropics. I actually got into an argument, I mean yelling and throwing stuff, this morning about whether or not you should wear colour in winter (which by the way you totally should). I argued that as long as you're warm then what does bright colour have to do with it, my opposition deemed bright colours 'inappropriate' for winter. So because I am a spiteful teenager, I of course pulled out the brightest, most obnoxious pair of pants I could find in my house and wore them all day long. I always find that things done from spite never end well but this outfit has to be one of my favourites. I think this coat, which doubles as a snood, sets off the tropical vibe of the pants perfectly and makes it definitely 'Winter Appropriate', proving that sometimes mother doesn't always know best. What I lack in life experience I make up for with my awesome dress sense and general charm.
I'm not sure if you guys have picked it up but I have definitely been approaching writing posts differently. After coming to the startling conclusion that I don't have a boss and therefore no one to please except myself I realised I can be snide and sarcastic if I want to, leave the serious writing for runway reviews and making plans for the inevitable zombie apocalypse. I do hope you're enjoying seeing a different and frankly more me style of writing, and if you don't well...frankly my dear I don't give a damn. (10 points to whoever knows where that quote is from)

All photos by me.
Earlier this week I had the absolute pleasure of checking out the S/S Miss Unkon collection, I'd been lucky enough to see their show at MBFWA first hand but it was so nice to get up close and personal with the pieces and look closely at the details that you can't really see on the runway. I know that showing posts are never very exciting for readers because seeing images of clothes that you can't buy for another few months isn't all that fun, which is why I tried to focus more on taking detail shots so you can not only see the little details that really make these pieces special, but also the quality and love that's put into every single garment.
The thing that has always struck me about Miss Unkon is Courtney, the designer, and her hands on attitude. It's very rare that you attend showings and get to hear the story behind the designs from the designer herself, you can feel the love and passion for her line radiating off her and it only helps to make you even more passionate about it yourself.
When asked which piece was my favourite I did struggle a bit but couldn't go past the stunning form fitting dress with a chiffon skirt, the magenta embroidery on the top gets me every time...
Needless to say it's a collection that I will be hammering down the door to get at once it's available in stores.
