I am obsessed with Lana Del Rey, I’m sure many of you already know of that due to my incessant mentioning of her in almost every post. I can’t pinpoint exactly what it is about her that makes me adore her so much. She has a voice of gold, she looks like a style icon in the making and she seems like a breath of fresh air from all the other pop-trash songs that are played back to back on relay all day.
I will admit that I very rarely buy albums, (I have only two: Lasers by Lupe Fiasco and this) there has to be something incredible about the artist for me to go out there and buy their album. I recommend you all buy Lana Del Rey’s Deluxe Album which comes with an extra three tracks!
“Well, you know, I kind of love Lana Del Rey, just because everyone hates her and I feel protective of her. I’m not a huge fan of her music, but I think she has been treated so unfairly and I feel really defensive on her behalf. I’m drawn to her. It’s a girl crush, and I don’t know why.” – Tavi Gevinson
Lana Del Rey recently bagged herself the cover of Vogue magazine, (read about it here) in my eyes this was inevitable really. The interview is excellent as expected, albeit, I do wish it was longer.
That’s enough of Lana Del Rey (for now). I recently bought two pairs of much needed trousers. My wardrobe is stocked chock-a-block full of denim jeans in almost every colour you can imagine, and I just wanted a change from the same old, same old.
The polka dot print of the blue trousers just really stood out to me as something that would match up well with the rest of my wardrobe.
I really love the pleather and fabric combination of the black leggings. I won’t be the first to admit that wearing 100% pleather trousers is difficult. It isn’t very practical as pleather has a nasty habit of warming up quickly and sticking to your legs as fast as you can say “it’s hot!”. Brava to the ones that can live through the heat of 100% pleather! I’m definitely not one of them, so instead, I opted for this pleather and fabric combination. I think it’s much more practical, comfortable and not to mention breathable! I also love the general contrast which speaks volumes through ever ensemble!
I have a habit of saying a lot about a little, so before I blabber on, I will bring this post to a hasty end. Do note fret, however, as I am planning out a video haul for you all very soon! Stay tuned!
