Spring...of the Pixie kind

Confession time, I'm not fussed about the Geldof girls (shocker) I don't hate them or anything, it's just I don't really get it?
Each to their own, everyone has the right to have a fashion icon/inspiration.
However whilst attempting to edit through my stack of Vogues, and box them up (...who would of thought it? I'm actually not half bad at packing, I really impressed myself, and also felt a tad ashamed of myself too:as I couldn't resist climbing into the box)I ended up dipping into one or two Vogue issues...it was inevitable.Whilst rapidly flicking through the pages and collecting numerous paper cuts (that's what I get for reading Vogues, when really I should have been busy packing them all away. What with the removal van due here in two weeks *panic*)I stumbled upon July 2007'Ageless style'issue.
Inside is a feature on sixteen year old Pixie Geldof, the photography and styling is beautiful with a hint of retro, and a reminder of glorious spring.

Thank gawwwd I did discover this issue of Vogue for it has reminded me that Spring isn't a figment of my imagination like I began to believe, it's real, it does exist.This winter won't last forever. The day when I can wave goodbye to my depressing winter wardrobe will be arriving sooney.No more heavy coats,no more winter warmers i.e itchy chunky knitwear accessories. And I shall be ecstatic when I can finally ditch the gloves (Joy!)and replace them with sunglasses (erm not to wear on my hands, but my head of course).

I literally cannot wait to wake up and be greeted by spring,and go sleeveless whoop, whoop,whoop and whoop again (too many whoops? Nah), plus I'm eager to whip out those jumpsuits.I almost OD on vintage jumpsuits/playsuits last summer: after snagging many funky ones from my beloved charity/ thrift shops.This year I shall be adding to my collection,I'm bagging the owl print and jungle j'suits from Trafficpeople. Who also have a crazy pair of very loud jungle print leggings...'noooo no more leggings Missy, you only have one pair of pins' alright I honestly tried extremely (?) hard to talk myself out of purchasing the jungle leggings. The burning question is has it worked?Hmmm, admittedly I'm not convinced or confident.
Time will tell.

Wow, I'm loving those images and that Traffic People gear. Not that I need any more vintage jumpsuits, playsuits or whacky leggings, either.
Don't get me started on those Geldofs. I grew up idolising Paula Yates, avidly reading her column in the Record Mirror.
I cannot abide those vacuous wannabes riding on the back of their parents' success (Daisy Lowe, can you hear me?)

You are far too kind.

I am very open about my dislike for them. In their shoes, I would be deeply ashamed of having a fame that was only acquired by having a now washed-up famous parent. It's not their fault that Bob Geldof is their Dad but they could lead a quiter life rather than show up EVERYWHERE. At the very least they could try and do something like Stella.

Maybe when they're older they will have some sort of life crisis and take up painting or something.

Thanks for sharing your old vogues though. There is some great styling in these pics. I had to recycle mine when I moved back to Canada. It sucks because foreign Magazines are anywhere between $10-$30 over here.
