Until the End of the World

I’ve always admired designs by Vivienne Westwood from afar but never indulged until recently.  I love that her style was born out of the punk era, so her fashion seems to speak to me musically (I always include a little punk or goth into my wardrobe).  It was my intention to visit her shop, World’s End, while I was in London this past August.  Due to time constraints, we never got to do it.  Instead, this sweater was my first ever purchase from Vivienne Westwood, and I snapped it up when I saw it on sale on Zappos.  It’s from the Anglomania line and the crazy threads woven through the cable of the chunky knit gives it that punk feel.  I can let them dangle or cinch them up and tie them for the asymmetrical look.  My favorite part is the safety-pin closure.  I absolutely love this sweater!

Shoe Dazed

I’m sure it’s been apparent that I’ve been doing quite a bit of shopping lately. I also recently joined Polyvore, so I created a set of some of the things that I’ve purchased (aside from the previously mentioned Juicy Couture venture). I seem to have amassed several pairs of shoes, including two pairs from Jeffrey Campbell.

If you are not familiar with Polyvore, it’s a site where the user can create “sets” and “collections” that can be shared with other Polyvore users, through social media places like Facebook, or they can be embedded in a blog, like I did here. I’m nowhere near being website savvy, so it took me a little while to figure out how to embed the image here, but I finally did. I hope you enjoy my first venture on Polyvore!

(Please note that I actually purchased the Naughty Monkey boots on Zappos.com.)
