Stitch up my soul...

For those who haven't been following this is the fourth installment of a project I am working on, creating outfits that have been inspired by other bloggers...

The devil is in the detail... That is what I have learned from Stephen Moloney's blog Stitches, Fabric and Soul. The people he hunts down and photographs are the pick of the crop. The cool, the demented,the loved, the wild, the weird, all with devil may care attitudes. Their clothes say something about them. Souls exposed in the seams of their garments. I may not always love what the people are wearing but I am jealous of their bravery, wearing items they truly love despite the fact it might not "go" or be "on trend".

Stephen Moloney himself oozes a sort of careless coolness, a characteristic I wish I possessed. Never trying to be cool but always falling into that category. A relaxed outlook to fashion while still being heavily consumed by it... You want to be his friend, but he is too bashful. Killer coolness, a monotoned quirkiness, shocking, youthful, fresh faced and head buzzing with glitter falling from his foot steps.

Though I am nowhere near cool enough...
