Emma Manley, SS 14

I've been under the weather the past week, literally and medically, and even waving at my computer seemed as easy to do as finding true love on a reality show (not easy at all, but there's always hope). So I've been laying about, watching movies, dosing myself with stuff to destuff, and generally slacking off. I'm back in business today and the first order of business is to avoid any real business and escape a little longer with a virtual shopping spree. I have been wearing the same heat-tech cords, snowboots, and flannel shirts (okay, pajamas) for weeks now and I am suddenly craving STYLE.

Fuck winter.

I want to bare a little skin/style in a cropped, sleeveless leather top from Irish designer Emma Manley, with a flared knee-length silk skirt with very cool leather center panel. I want to wear a swingy, teal chiffon skirt with a metallic leather peplum top. Actually, same metallic leather top begs to be worn with every other bit of clothing in my wardrobe; it'd look great with skinny jeans for my birthday, tweedy skirts for work stuff, and even those Japanese cords that supposedly prevent frostbite at the dog park. That Emma Manley has a knack for luxurious but wearable clothing. 

I kind of want every single top in her SS14 collection, from the casual-chic wool and linen jumpers, to the studded and perforated leather jacket/top, to the fun patent-leather and silk blouses. I'll take a swingy skirt, or two, too. Oh, the teals, the navys, the clays, the metallics! The chiffons, the silks, the leathers! Oh, I think I will double-up the cough meds and take this spree from virtual to reality ... with me finding true love and hope for soon-to-come spring days.
