Armand Basi One.

My favourite collection from the A/W shows so far has to be the Armand Basi One collection, designed by Markus Lupfer. I love the 80s vibe running through the collection, and the mix of shapes; I'm so attracted to both all of the tight skirts and pants as well as the oversized jackets, and of course the simple colour palette makes me happy. And I think it all looks great paired with the brothel creepers!

I've actually been after some creepers for about 6 months, as my housemate has had a great leopard print pair for years (but they're a size too small so I can't borrow them -sad-). I always seem to have a pair in my watching list on ebay, but never actually bid for them... I'm quite a nervous ebayer, haha, but maybe I will finally bid on some soon!

    I want to pair them with black stilettos and throw in some white lace.

  19. I know, you just seem to get sucked into this world of beautiful colours and fabrics when you are in Topshop. Then two hours later you wake up and realise how long you have been there.
    I had to have a shower after because I was all yuck from the stress of it all!
