That’s right party people, It’s ‘edie’ not ‘eddie’ has moved to pastures new.
Check out the new site with more frequent blog posting and a more fashion-orientated feel:
WTF?! Kanye West exhibited a collection at Paris Fashion Week?! WHAT?!
IS THIS EVEN ALLOWED!?!?!
Now I’m hardly a member of the fashion elite myself, but when I think of Kanye West I think of golddigger, Amber Rose, and Kanye himself generally being in the news for acting like a twat (a prime example being the infamous ‘George Bush hates black people’ saga. Need I say more.) So naturally it came as a bit of a shock to learn that Kanye’s ‘doing a Victoria’ and translating his *ahem* ‘talents’ into fashion.
Not unsurprisingly, Kanye’s show was a disaster – critics haven’t been particularly complimentary, and frankly considering how ‘nice’ he is to his fellow celebrities (*cough cough* Taylor Swift *cough*) why should they be! One esteemed fashion editor even tweeted ‘still laughing at the Kanye show – #MESS’. HA!
I can’t stand it when overly-cocky celebrities feel the need to turn their hand to something other than what they’re famous for – Gordon Ramsay for example; filmmaking?! REALLY?!
And now that Kanye’s been royally rejected from the fashion world, I only hope he gets the message and stays clear. And if he does – good luck getting anyone to come to the show!
HAR HAR HAR
She’s a bit mental, but I do have a soft spot for her Icelandic warbling.
And Crystalline is a good song if ever I heard one.
PASSED MY DRIVING TEST!
I am truly a genius.
So the new college year is about to begin, and this year I’m going to learn from my mistakes (now that I am old and wise and everything) and buy only a few key pieces for my college wardrobe, instead of the ridiculous amount of stuff I bought last year. Really, you only need a few statement, versatile and durable items that will last you until Spring, which fits in perfectly with my plan to save money! Below is my list of three A/W must-haves which I will be buying to keep me looking on-trend and generally badass until Spring arrives:
Item One: The Coat
Everyone needs a classic coat for the winter season. My main criteria involve versatility – I want to be able to wear it with anything – and warmth – no one wants to see me blue and uncontrollably shivering (it’s not pretty – trust me).
This double-breasted vigoré coat from Zara (which by the way is definitely selling some great stuff right now) is the perfect neutral beige to match anything I wear, and the thick material plus great length means I won’t freeze. The softly tailored shape will accentuate my waist and disguise my hips, and at £119 it’s not ridiculously expensive! A safe buy to last the whole winter.
Item Two: The Chunky Knit
Taking inspiration from old people nationwide, chunky knits are definitely having a moment for me. Although not as good as anything my Grandma can knit me, this River Island tribal-patterned cardigan is both practical and pleasing – no one’s going to lose sight of me in the refectory with this bad boy on. Perfect for a cover-up in early autumn, and can be layered up and belted when the chillier weather sets in. £40.
Item Three: The Chelsea Boot
Boots are always a tricky buy for me – I’m incredibly fussy – but now that I have my black sheepskin ones from last year, I feel it’s time to get something a bit more casual. These tan-coloured Chelsea Boots, £62 from Topshop, will go perfectly with the coat and cardigan above, and can be worn now when the weather is still average as well as in the dead of winter. Should the sun dramatically decide to reappear (fingers crossed!) I’ll be able to team them with bare legs and ruffled socks in an Alexa Chung stylee. Let’s just hope everyone else doesn’t have the same idea!
As always, let me know what you think via my twitter: www.twitter.com/EdieJefferys
Spotted this talented lady’s work at the New Designer’s Exhibition in London – not usually my cup of tea, but I can just imagine displaying her work above the fireplace in some rural cottage surrounded by fields, while woodland creatures help me tidy the house in a Snow White-stylee.

So yes, I’ve finally conformed to the masses and got myself a twitter! As well as being able to rant on the internet some more, I thought it might be interesting to hear from those lovely people who actually read this blog! So if you feel like asking me a question or telling me how I should stop moaning about my lack of clothes, tweet me and we’ll see how it goes! Or alternatively follow me, cos that would be really nice too.
Go on…. you know you want to.
