Throwing back to ’99, when my sister and I modelled for Paul Smith.
It may have been a long time ago, but its proof that I was destined for fashion or better yet, fashion was destined for me! #90s
So last Saturday (9th November) marced yet another special day; My Birthday!
22..Meeeh. As much as I am so over birthdays now, one thing remains a highlight. CAKE. Yes; cake cake and more cake. Whats even better is my Marc Jacobs obsession is so explicit to everyone, even my birthday cake is Marc Jacobs. -jealous much?
For the bestest cakes ever; taste and design; enquire below!
Some say “tamato” and others say tomato.
Plenty say trainers and even more say sneakers…
Most say Adidas, yet others say “Adeedas”.
But whatever twang, dialect, accent or language someone speaks, we all know what is being said (well sometimes). With Nike remaining in the limelight, other sports brands make a Comeback, whilst Adidas host a “Throwback”!
Showcased at the Hoxton Gallery; in the heart of East London; the brand with 3 stripes surly showed its age; with over 600 different pairs of vintage, deadstock , re-issues and collaboration style trainers. (Most to which are owned by one man-and I thought I was a hoarder!) Whether its walk, jog or run; the exhibition was definitely a step back into history- History that I didn’t even know existed. Some of the trainers on display only dated back 10 years or so; however, many were creations from the 90s, 80s, 70s…
For all my fellow fashionistas, footwear lovers, trainer freaks, sneakerheads, avid sporty people and the curious passerbyers; if you do get a chance or happen to be in the area, go and have a look. The space is quite small, nevertheless it’s a space filled with character, colour, culture and lets not forget…cabinets! And whats more, it was rather interesting to browse through and worth popping into.
My dedication to Marc Jacobs has me buying Diet Coke. I don’t even drink Coke. Even as one who always take the sugar-free, less fat, diet, lite, extra lite and what ever has the least calories option; Diet Coke has never really floated my boat. But celebrating 30 years of the sugarless Brown fizz (Diet Coke) and with Marc Jacobs as the new creative director, I was not about to walk passed these limited edition beauties without picking one or two or three up!
There are 3 different designs, one for each decade that Diet Coke has graced us with its presence; 80s, 90s and 00s. Personally, as a 90s baby, this one is of course my fav and just because its the nicest!
