>> A lazy afternoon spent meandering over the many MANY versions of Gershwin's Summertime thanks to this documentary on BBC4, has tricked me into thinking that hot and sweaty days are not too far away. To be fair, save for the few gusty days and one or two hours where I thought the temperature had dropped below zero, I've not actually felt properly cold yet. The fact that I haven't worn a solid chunky winter coat yet is slightly worrying. I've still not properly delved into my 80 plus denier tights box. I've been bare legged most of this winter thus far, albeit with a few goosebumps.
Anyhow, it's a false sense of security that lulls me into proceeding to get excited by what's around the corner. Such as this bStore x Liberty S/S 12 collection. I got a little bit excited by the accessories (see bottom) all the way back in June last year when I saw them in Paris. That was FAR too early to start feeding the brain with images of cute Liberty print clad mini satchels and peep-toe boots with perspex heels. Now is a more appropriate time, what with bStore's new Kingly Street location and other upcoming projects. In any case, I did say that we'd be knee deep in Liberty print collaborations so it's best to space them out evenly just in case they all land in your eyesight all at once.
