I've got fat hips but still ate cake
My fat hips have been creeping up on me for a while. Well it is more a bit more fat all over in fact, however after seeing Sister Wolf in her great figure splendour at 56 even whilst rocking a walking aide - I knew my hips were inflating. A quick text to Wee Birdy drew me no comfort because a) she had another appointment and we couldn't have a fat hip conflab at the my-wardrobe S/S press event and b) she replied No - fat hips!
So I hauled my fat hips to the my-wardrobe S/S10 press evening last week in the rain. Upon entering the thin hips world of the my-wardrobe crew I adopted a professional frame of mind and set about appraising the collection pushing my hips to one side.
I found this McQ dress first amongst the racks and rack of clothes. I loved the colour and easy shape of it - the material and print is beautiful.
Yet more colour and style in this gorgeous number from Manoush. It is glorious and instantly made me think of summer days even though Christmas hasn't come.
I also fell in love with a beaded jacket from Kite and Butterfly. Very glamorous but equally would work with t-shirt and jeans.
I snapped the summer sandal flats, more updates on the gladiator styles but mostly in sumptuous suede.
Being in the UK one can expect rain in Spring and Summer and what better than these cute welly booties from Vivienne Westwood
And these little beauties are Zandra Rhodes designs who had been backed by an American company whose names escapes me but I was told they'd been selected for SATC2. I heard this quite a few times and all I could think was what hasn't been selected for SATC2. But the shoes really are interesting summer footwear and in strong interesting colours.
I sort of passed on the swimwear due to my fat hips. It was a note to self moment, sort it out! However, the D&G pretty print had a lovely retro feel to it that was strikingly pretty and instantly made me think of Sorrento and Capri (in my dreams).
There was a very Navajo vibe going on in the midst of the usual glitz of summer stuff. I noted these earrings on a perspex table and then the House of Harlow loafers with similar details.
I was impressed with the House of Harlow shoes, well made and good material. The lattice flats are stunning in the flesh and somehow don't translate in a photo.
These See by Chloe wedges hit the nautical note and also reminded me I needed to nip off home. I was tempted by these little beauties on my way out and despite my fat hips a yellow and purple teeny tiny cakes found there way into my mouth - opps!
