T.U.K_2I remember way back in the mid 80s when my cousin made his transition into Rocker-hood +always wore creepers …. actually, I think he still does!

I love them + have been a fan of them myself from way back and am happy they’re back!

Breath Mint Anyone?

Edited by Jordana
There’s something about the fall season that brings both calming and chaotic feelings. As we kiss our wild summer nights goodbye, we say hello to late night study sessions and longer days in the office. As New York Fashion Week closes and we’re trying to catch up on the latest collections, London Fashion Week kicks off. This week’s round up of Links à la Mode from Independent Fashion Bloggers embodies a little bit of everything in an effort to give you a breather in between the deceiving calm that comes with fall. We’ve got runway reviewes ranging from Fashion Pulse’s take on Tory Burch to Fasshonaburu’s humorous experience at the Snuggie fashion show, and Style Amour rated the top five most disappointing Spring 2010 collections. There are also a few new DIY’s worth checking out, especially the Maison Michael bunny ears post from Monoxious. Last but not least, make sure you check out Ashe Mischief’s scando-style post on Sarah Von of Yes and Yes on Dramatis Personae.

By the way, if you haven’t checked out the IFB Dress Up Soiree & Evolving Influence Panel recap, click here.

As promised, here’s the latest on THE IMMORALIST …

Here are the pics from the after party which took place at ‘The East Rooms‘ and which featured performances by Ex Lovers & Ali Love + DJ sets by Disco Bloodbath and Gutterslut.

Recap:  The denim items were a result of the collaboration with Firetrap and will be exhibited then auctioned @ City Hall in order to support the Mayors Fund For London.  So if you happen to be in London town @ about that time + you’ve got some spare dosh, take a look at the capsule collection and support this really important charity!
