Speaking of trends, you can't go wrong this season with leather & lace. It was once so rad, (I love that phrase, thanks PD) but I bet you'd see it on any high street, or any shopping mall round the world. And yet: everyone can work this look their own way. It's like fur and tweed, or gold jewelry with a ripped old jumper: just mix it up. Masculine & feminine. Glam and casual. As long as they're pieces you already love, that have a history and a story all your own, as long as you love the elements individually, you can't possibly go wrong.

UPDATE: Okay, this is weird. Blame it on my fever, I'm feeling a bit delirious. I happened to check my sitemeter which shows where people are clicking from, and there were a bunch of people coming from ASOS. So I clicked on the link and someone named Nat said she's just discovered herself in this shot. I took just the one shot, and don't remember taking it - must have just passed her quickly, and clicked - her head was cut off in the shot. So Nat, if you're reading this, please get in touch! Email link on my profile, or comment here - let me know how to find you. I trust I've got your permission, which I'd normally ask, but I'd love a shot of you with a head! So, where'd you get the dress?
I had to register with ASOS to comment there, which isn't a bad thing, as half the people I shoot are wearing stuff from them, so, frankly, it's about time.
