A splash of Kling

History has an uncanny  way of repeating itself. Prancing around the streets in some of my recently acquired Kling x Marciano goodies (oh yes, there's more to come!), I couldn't help but acknowledge that I was potentially suffering yet again from an acute case of blinded by the label. Evidently, there is no way on earth I would have graced the floors of a Guess store (in-your-face sexy [read borderline vulgarity] has never been my cup of tea) without the marketing pull of one of the world wide webs' most loved style icons. Turns out, it truly was a siren call. Once in, I freely succumbed to the offspring of Miz Kling, with no restraint whatsoever. As I came up for air, I wondered for a split second whether I had just been tricked into buying something I did not really want. But all doubts evaporated as soon as I realised that I genuinely loved every piece I had brought home. And I haven't stopped wearing the lot since. Incidently, those boots are the comfiest heels I have ever had the pleasure of strutting around London in. I could almost sing

I'm wearing an Elin Kling x Guess by Marciano turtleneck and booties, Topshop skinny jeans, a Gaia Repossi ring (similar here) and a KlearKlutch perspex clutch.

  5. The jumper and boots are truly gorgeous pieces in their own right, so I doubt you were "blinded by the label". Kling's collection for Guess had really very amazing pieces! There was a leather skirt and leather pants that I fell in love with but couldn't find online anymore. Well, I guess she's a good designer, I mean Nowhere is amazing! x

    1. I got the skirt :)
      Thing is, she isn't really behind nowhere - the designer Nhu Duong is. I think she mainly does some creative consulting and has the final say about what goes into production etc.. not sure tbh, but she is not the one designing that's for sure.. which is why I had my doubts about the quality and fit of this collection. But its amazing, really, albeit a tad overpriced.

  15. Haha, c'est plaisant de ne rien regretter dans un achat surtout que pour ma part ils ont tendance à être impulsifs. J'ai toujours trouvé que Guess était vulgaire moi aussi, mais en effet pourquoi ne pas laisser une chance à quelques pièces?
    Cette couleur te va parfaitement, et les chaussures... que dire, fantasmagoriques?

  23. I love how you minimally styled this look...the transparent clutch, the edgy booties, the oversized sweater. I recently posted a YouTube video and blog post about fashion regrets, so I can relate to wondering if you made the right choice in Guess. Guess always gets me, too!

  31. I love the slim bottom half under the oversized top. It looks really nice here.
    I can relate to the 'label blinding'. It is something I constantly check myself on and I thought that was quite funny.

  51. Where can I purchase this jumper, as it is not on the Browns website anymore.

    It is amazing with the British weather as it is right now, I'd live in it.

    Please let me know if possible.

    Such an amazing person, the line is fantastic and your blog is pure bliss for a fashion student like myself.

    Many thanks,
