Tutu Du Monde – Girls Halloween Collection

Halloween is almost here! And for those of you who find yourself supergluing a misshapen bat wing onto an old gym t-shirt the night before Halloween, this post is a warning to you – be prepared!  Now, I am not criticizing homemade costumes – if you can do it and do it well, I raise my glass to you! But for the rest of us, buying is the only way.

HM Studio

I’m going to make my first week back all about fashion – darlings. (Word association, sorry). And because it’s Back to School Week and we all have a ton of school admin crap to read (or not if you are me), I shall make this post light on words, heavy on pictures. Let’s begin here.

First up Gucci. My complete obsession and unrequited love – largely due to my epic fail of not having married a billionaire. Next we have Loewe – which I was told, in a very passive-agressive way some years ago by a complete bit£% i used to work with at a designer fashion brand, is pronounced Low-aire-vey.
