The Fashion Audit: Bibliophile, chain gang, lashings of lashes and Sole 2 Sole
What we love, we're not sure about, we're buying and can't wait for...
We Love: Bibliophile
Visitors to COS on Regent Street this week may be surprised to find an eclectic collection of tomes from The Wapping Project Bookshop among the minimalist decor and rails of trend-ticking pieces.
Until 14 March, 222 Regent Street, W1
We're not sure about: Chain gang
The Audit is all for a bit of directional high-street fashion, but this piece of man jewellery from Topman is taking things a step far. Styled over skinny jeans, it resembles an instrument of torture more than anything that should ever be worn in the cold light of day.
We're buying: Lashings of lashes
Benefit's super-sizing mascara "They're Real" was the best-selling premium mascara last year and, with one sold every 20 seconds, is set to take the title for 2012 too. Lengthening and volumising, the clever brush promises to reveal lashes that you never knew you had.
We can't wait for: Style bible
The last model has barelysashayed off the catwalk in Paris and the buzz of the international collections still lingers in the air, so what better way to keep up the momentum than pre-ordering issue two of the print edition of Style.com?
We're starting early: Sole 2 Sole
Harnessing the power of positive thinking, one could say that summer – aka sandal-wearing season – is just around the corner. Which makes now the time for a pre-emptive pedicure from the maestro Margaret Dabbs – right now our feet would scare small children.
