|Traffic People Anchors & Stripes dress, £55 (was £109), ASOS|
Here's my thought process when I first saw this Traffic People dress:
"I don't like it."
"HOLD UP. Maybe I do."
"Oh look. It's got Kate Moss's tattoo all over it."
"Why is it called Anchor & Stripes? WHERE ARE THE STRIPES?"
"I don't care. I love it."
Can you see stripes? I can't see stripes. Maybe I have stripe blindness.

(Can we talk about why Michael Douglas didn't get nominated for a BAFTA for Behind The Candelabra?)
I do love an elbow patch. I am particularly enjoying these ones, which have a suitably homespun feel - like you were just having a rummage through your car's glovebox one day and found an old chamois leather and thought, "HEY! Why don't I cut this up into the shape of a loveheart and stick it on my elbow?".

Don't tell me you've never done that.
It's still winter, which means we're allowed to wear vaguely Fair Isle-ish knits for a goodly long while yet. This one from Joy may be depicting tiny rockets. Or are they oil rigs? The Eiffel Tower, perhaps?
|Louche Fletcher jumper, £20 (was £45), Joy|
No. Quite clearly it is the Very Dangerous Electricity Pylon from that public information film that scared us all senseless in the 80s (I still give them a wide berth, even when I'm not flying my kite with wild abandon). Climbing pylons can kill, kiddos. Wear them on your jumper instead.
|Izzie brogues, £15 (was £25), Kate Kanzier|
Kate Kanzier, already a bargainous source of shoes, is having a whopping sale. WHAT THIS MEANS FOR US: shoes like these Izzie brogues are so cheap, it would be COMPLETELY STUPID not to go and have a look around. Some pairs are just £5! That's absurd! You'll probably eat £5 for your lunch today. (PRO TIP: spend it on food before attempting to eat it. That pesky bit of metal through the middle will get stuck in your teeth otherwise.)
|Poste Mistress Sofia peeptoes, £49.50 (was £110), Office|
Rose gold is my favourite thing right now. I can't afford ACTUAL rose gold, but I can afford these Poste Mistress peeptoes from Office, which are the next best thing to the real deal. ALSO: pink sole.

TELL ME EVERYTHING. What have you been buying, what have you been bought? I've missed you.
