There is something almost amusing about the way a person can captivate you and alter your views in a matter of minutes. I woke up this morning to take the time, like I do every morning, to read through some blogs like a gentleman would do with the morning papers (I am imagining the kind of gentleman that wears subtle check, smokes a pipe and peers over his glasses, not through them whilst sat at a desk in a study pretty similar to Dermot Mulroney's in the new New Girl episode).
Coming across this recent image of Alexa at Austin's SXSW festival, like always, I admired every piece that embraced her frame and realised how influential people can really be, for I had just two minutes previously been checking out Topshop's New In section and had been taken aback by the sheen of this skirt. It was so lustrous I almost reached for my sunglasses, I tried to but really couldn't imagine who would wear this and how but alas, as you know, shortly after, I stumbled upon Alexa and fell deeply in love like I do every time and found myself wanting to begin a love affair with her skirt. It had sheen and it had lustre and I'll be damned I had answered my own question, I would be the kind of person who would wear that Topshop skirt.
