Thank you Flora for the outfit shots!

Actually, that second to last row should have an equals sign in the middle, donuts = horse calves. The weather was illegally good today so it was only right to find an illegally great donut to accompany the almighty homicide of winter, and none other than the rose-jam-almond-shavings donuts from Chmielna street came to mind. Mother always said eating in the street is unladylike but one whiff of the donutshop and I was ready to peel off the sequins from Flora’s top (that she sewed on) just because they resembled almonds… what lady?

Who’s been called a four-eye before? I have, all throughout middle school and high school. Love how I had ultra-supersonic-laser-eye capabilities on every photo from the light reflection on my glasses – I had this anonymous glasses-for-nonrecognition thing going on except you knew it was me because its that girl with the white eye sockets. People would then always ask how kissing would be with glasses on and I would tell them it’s quite difficult because the specs could concentrate sun-rays into the partner’s eyes and make him blind. There was always one girl who said Really? to that.

I have no idea why we had so much glass-ism when we were young, what was so bad about them? Now I really crave for them.

Just over a week ago, I was invited to this year’s SpecsaversSpectacle Wearer of the Year awards, (Thanks again, Tom!) and there saw the glassophilics of glassophilics come together. Hosted by Ben Shepherd and Jenni Falconer, it was a combination of cocktail reception, celebrities, catwalk of the 9 finalists, and then the awards ceremony. ALL GLASSED, naturally. (That sounds like gassed, sorry, making up words here) I must say, it was quite refreshing to see specs on the catwalk, the effect it had on an evening gown was all I’m down to business tonight. I’m rather glad that glasses are slowly rising to a stage of being a celebrated item of accessory instead of an annoyance – although, we’ve all had that time when we used a brooch to cover up a dirty area on our sweater, if you know what I mean. (No face washing anymore!)

How did you come about to adore fashion; Who/what inspires your style?
[oh vandalism, ahmi]

I thought I had a cool and original style when I was in Poland, but when I came to London in 2006 for my Foundation degree I got to mingle with all these artyfarty types and realised I looked like something plucked out of the set of Little House on the Prairie, or like a door-to-door dictionary salesman. I really saw how fashion can express an individual and fell in love with that. Although, I did take a wrong next step and started reading Cosmopolitan to read up on fashion. BAD IDEA. All I learned from that damn magazine was how many ways one can get an orgasm. Then I stumbled upon blogs like Fashiontoast and Kingdom of Style and realised there’s much more to fashion than looking exactly like the next person.

Like everyone else, I get style inspirations from practically everything: blogs, magazines, movies, your average londoner… but I’d say I get direct inspiration from Taylor Tomasi and our very own Queen Michelle (Kingdom of Style). Oh also I get mucho influence from the Bible. No not the toga-dressing, Roman sandals thing – most of you know I’m a Christian, so I tend not to go for too revealing clothing – hence the lack of short skirts/shorts in my outfits unless accompanied by leggings or whatnot. No, I’m not aspiring to be a nun, but I do believe modesty is also what brings about class.

What is your favourite blog? [sharon]

Now now, that’s like asking me if I like mum better or dad… clearly it’s dad. I keeed. There are a few sites that I greatly admire, but I don’t really have a favourite that I read religiously.

I love a style that is completely unique and that doesn’t go with the immediate trend, so blogs like Kingdom of Style, Stylebubble hit my chords loud and clear; and then I enjoy the incredibly well maintained and adorned with immaculate styling of Le Blog de Betty. Being an anal graphic designer and all, I also admit that I selfishly frequent blogs with pleasing aesthetics, although of course it’s not the first thing I look at…

I just stumbled upon a blog that combines Graphic Design and Fashion – Nubbytwiglet, definitely worth a visit.

Where is your favourite travel destination; where would you like to travel to most? [Kim]

Not that I remember where I’ve been and all that from floating around with the schitzophrenic bunny, but I love the Austrian Alps – the idea of it, the look of it… I’d so want to settle on a hill and grow goats and stilettos and stuff. (Magic stiletto seed, I has)

May I have the url that you purchased the pants from? (these pants) [Suu]

Urm, I think this wasn’t a question for the Q&A but I guess it’s still a question – Today’s your lucky day, I’m deciding to be a kind soul and give you the URL. Except, the pants are out of stock so MUAHAHAH. Evil blogger prevails!
