The Second Coming

For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise again. – 1 Thessalonians 4:15-17 Erm…. not quiet as dramatic as the above quotation but almost… for me anyway! Kate Moss’s second collection of the year has now risen and is on sale in a Topshop near you, and its good guys its really really good…. So good in fact I am currently on the phone to my bank in an attempt to extend my overdraft!! The collection is based on her long summers spent in Ibiza, the festivals she has attended, and the intermit finds she has acquired whilst on her travels and throughout he long fruitful life in the fashion industry. The high summer collection is a lovely mix of animal print, tie-dye, summer sequins and some beautiful limited addition pieces! In my opinion is is the best we’ve seen from Miss Moss in a while. The collections release is in accordance with payday so nothing (apart from your dreaded rent) should be holding you back in your quest for the perfect summer wardrobe. So sharpen your elbows head into town and peruse this exquisite collection…or, sit on your bum, like me, and order it from the comfort of your own home! I have...
