Natalie B. Coleman

I'm wearing the same outfit as yesterday. 

Pause here for emphasis. 

It's one of those day-in-day-out looks (jeans, striped bateau top, converse) that worked so well yesterday that it's now a day-in-day-out-and-day-after look. My hair is the same (frizzy), so is my make-up (lip balm), and I'm even wearing the exact same accessories (tweed cap, earrings, and printed neck scarf); If I hadn't changed my knickers and socks I'd expect to run into Bill Murray and Andie MacDowell at any minute. 
I had no problem copycatting my own look at 7 this morning when I was racing around the house, but all of a sudden, I feel like a bit of a slacker. Looking at up-and-coming Irish designer Natalie B. Coleman's  Spring/Summer 2011 collection, I feel like I've let myself go.


Her 'Damaged Goods' collection is “Inspired by the stories, the secrets, and longings for individuality in all women and with a background in strong narratives and quirky romance.” Love the feminine silk and sheer fabrics, the hand-painted illustrations, and the splashes of color.

I'm only going to the dentist but I suppose I could make more of an effort ...
