.. between me and Miu Miu’s Spring ’10 collection. I daresay¬†Miuccia Prada has bought out the shoe fetishist in me, I would do bad things to get my hand on these beauties.

I’m a big fan of Uniqlo– most of my jeans, and indeed all of my cashmere (just the one sweater..) comes from there. We all know the Japanese brand does staples to perfection, but what about those after something a little more.. trend led?

Enter this range of summery tees, depicting a selection of vintage Vogue covers from the thirties and forties.

The¬†Vogue newsletter assures me these little beauts will be in store soon. I do hope they’ll be blaring a certain Madonna song in the fitting rooms, too. Any excuse!

A New Leaf..

Hello all,

I have decided that rather than update my much loved (but much neglected) Domiknittrix blog, I would start an all new and improved version! I’m hoping to be branching out a little with this online venture, so as well as covering my usual fodder, female angsty issues (Don’t get me started on that Mooncup advert!) I’m going to try and get a bit of mainstream culture in the mix, be it what I think of the latest scenester album, or my reviews of only the finest fine art (Who wants to go to the Whitechapel?) . I’m hoping as well to get a few culinary trials up on here about as well, having been inspired by the Julie Powell’s delightful Julie and Julia book, where the author attempts to cook every one of the 524 recipes from Julie Child’s seminal Art of French Cooking, and blog about the results. I was thinking this curvy brunette could probably take on Nigella Lawson with some success, although I daresay she’s a lot more verbose than I am, and probably better at wielding a spatula in a seductive manner.

Somehow I don’t manage to look like this when tucking into several plates full of cake. But anyway, I can touch type, and that’s all that matters here.
