The dudes and I went to the Originals store and Selfridges to check out the goods and we were super excited! Be warned, if you want a piece of JS x Adidas action...forget about going to Selfridges because they bump the price up of each piece by a good £10-£20!! I was shocked, definitely go to the Adidas Originals store. Unless of course its a last resort, for instance, the above leopard fleece hoody was only sold at Selfridges.
The leopard fleece hoody (paws and tails included) was a steep £150 :-( but how cute is it?! I was just trying it on to see how silly I looked but I love it!!! Its too adorable and I feel like a kid playing dress up, as my friend (Coco Pine - check the bitch out y'all!) noted it looks like I just fell out of "Where The Wild Things At" land, which is pretty darn fitting seen as it is my all time favourite chidren's book, along with "A Necklace of Raindrops" (dope kids book). Granted, it does look like I just killed a leopard - skinned and gutted it - and threw it on my back as a form of outwear, but that just adds to my fantasy imagination and all the fun of the jacket, no? I truly adore every detail of the hoody, and it plays a little on those Bape shark 'zip all the way up to the head' hoodies but 100 times better, sweeter and less overplayed. Like for real, paws and a tail? *I heart*!
The only thing I fear if I ever bought this and wore it around my area on the London streets, are the stupid fools who will no doubt pull my tail. I wouldn't mind the stares or laughs so much (they clearly do not understand) but the pulling of the tail would seriously push my buttons, and I would be tempted to turn around and claw at them.
150 odd pounds is a hella lot of cashmonies so I can only hope it drops in the sale, if it ever reaches to that stage! I also wanted the leopard print t-shirt but £40 (£50 in Selfridges!) was also too steep for my purse, I have holidays to save up for and my mummy and daddy are not the rich folks who fund my life!
The on trend, less sporty and more fashionable items from the Jeremy Scott collab were much more expensive. Items with thrills, fringing, sequins and also the black and white cup, cropped corset top (effing love this piece) started from around £150, so I gladly touched and admired without looking too shocked.
Me & my sister obviously couldn't leave empty handed; one of us had to get something. It was between the leopard print t-shirt for me, because if you don't know, I am quite fond of the odd animal print, and a zip-up leopard print jacket for my sister. £45 for the tee and £70 for the jacket....we chose the jacket of course! It seemed a lot more worth the money and it is the HOTNESS!!! I love it, on my sister, I look like a right dweeb wearing it. She looks so cool and I'm going to be a proud big sister walking next to here when she wears it :-D. This was one of the cheapest JS Adidas Originals pieces and totally worth the £70, and we were even more psyched as we saved £10 because it was £80 in Selfrigdes!
This is what I wore on one of the rare outings that actually requires me to take a break and leave my house. Its a very old dress that belonged to above sister aged 10. My mum found it whilst going through a cleaning frenzy.here and here...which are to be released on June 1st!
Sheeett its almost 5pm and I have not written a single word for my dissertation, which by the way is about the subculture of trainers...! Easier said than done, I promise you! If I don't do 1000 words today I will be royally bummed....
