holidays

The Fourth

My family came here from somewhere else, but I was born in America. Arverne, Queens in New York to be exact. It was a tossup between here and London. I very nearly had a cute accent and addiction to PG Tips. Life is random that way.

Kind of like the day that the WTC got bombed. People were happy, or unhappy. Going about their day, working, talking on the phone, looking out of the window, loving life. Just being free and alive and unaware that hatred towards our country would end their lives and plunge lower Manhattan into screaming chaos.

Random.

This was my first visit to the 9/11 Memorial Plaza and it scared me to death to think about the devastation that this tranquil area represents. The sound of the flowing water trying to cleanse away the hatred and the hurt.

For me the worst part is the square the water flows into. I know it’s weird, but I think of all of those people and how their lives just disappeared into thin air, and in my mind’s eye I can see them all in there, under the water.

Staring at the sky and looking for planes.

So remember last time, when we went over to boohoo clothing to see the men’s aw2015 collection and glimpsed this tray of jewelry? They were sweet enough to give me some info on what’s coming for the ladies both for ss2015 and aw2015!

because SEB is awesome.

I got a copy of their newsletter, boo hoo Stylefix, which broadcast their summer social media campaign #WeAreUSA- featuring Angel Hayes,  and forecast the trends of the coming hot weather season. Be on the lookout for a Mexican and Western American influence, blue and white are hot, lace, and stealing from the boys in minimalistic, clean-lined pieces.

This summer, the London based retailer has focused on the multifaceted nature of the millenial female, showcasing hip/punk, sweet Lolita, and athleisure styles on people like dj Hannah Bronfman. The prices are hyper affordable, and a community has sprung up around the #WeAreUSA hashtag. Biggest trend this summer? Being who you are.

For the aw2015 collection the forecast is 70s. Leather look dresses with grommets and blouses with pussycat bows, instant sophistication. Also loving this plaid coat which is sweet without being sugary.

Jump ahead to the 80s and the red neoprene motorcycle jacket with sleeve grommets can work with the fringey skirt or the denim outfit. Loving how the denim top works a frayed edge into the equation. bhw3

boohoo Night is a sexy collection of tailored, bodycon dresses and jumpsuits with cutouts and embellishments for serious holiday party appearances. Stay warm and cozy under this furry overcoat. Don’t forget your mittens!
