Here is the excited SS2010 collection by New York based Sunshine and Shadow.

choices, strong prints and close attention to finishing work together to build a distinctly subtle and perfectly casual luxuriousness.”

Trainers make me very happy so here is a collection of the good, the bad and odd…
Adidas Adicolour H, The first trainer that comes with a set of paints to customise your own sneek.
Adidas 3way Consortium 3rd Drop
Adidas Superskate (consortium) Part of their celebration of ’60 Years of Soles and Stripes’ collection…. I’m going to have to start counting my coppers for these beauties.
Nike Auto Flight High
Nike Blazer Boneyards (Stussy)
Adidas SLVR collection….. no, no, NO, NOOOO!!! so wrong on SO, SOOO MANY LEVELS!!!
Vuitton High Top X Kanye West… These bad boys were showed off in January for sale this summer and they are hideous. Tassels?! TASSELS?!!!!please Kanye, find something better to do with yourself.
Reebok Pump Omni Light (Mogwai). Gremlin’s insprired trainers… The folk at Reebok thought it would be a good idea to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Gremlins by bringing out a Monster Pack. I think they should of just watched the film instead of investive time and creativity into these furry beasts. Really, who thought it was a good idea?!!!
Jeremy Scott for Adidas (JS Wings). So fly.
….and finally the odd
Adidas X Jeremy Scott ( 3 Tongue). Inicially I thought these were ridiculous but they are actually quite sweet, especially with the bumblebee colours.
Nike Dunk (21 Mercer). Cool effect but I can’t look at these too long.

Tonight my boyfriend and I tried to have an evening without sitting on our laptops all night… It didn’t last long. So while he’s been figuring out HTML (F<*%i>! hell) I have been yearning after Sandra Backlund’s architectural and sculptural looking chunky knit designs… TOTALLY amazing.
On my recent trip to Vancouver to see my mum and brother I did a lot of wondering around, visiting shops and generally absorbing the city. However, being back in the rather dreich city of Edinburgh has made me wish I could see the town through a fresh set of eyes. It is a beautiful city, it’s just so familiar. So I am setting myself a task to go to parts of the city I have never been and rekindle my enjoyment for the city again, whether its taking photos, discovering new shops or just aimlessly wondering around looking for something to grab me….easier said than done I think.
In the last few years a number of my favorite local shops have closed and hopefully that trend doesnt continue with the current economic climate. These included two of my favorite clothing shops that had been about since I was a teenager, Odd Ball Mall and Odd One Out. The Latter closed it’s clothing boutiques in Victoria Street a few months ago to concentrate on selling their independent label Oddities online. Vixy Rae designed the label Oddities using Susie Q’s illustrations of Scotland, wild life and urban scenes on the clothing and accessories. If you are in Glasgow they have opened a small concept store at the Ivy bar, I haven’t been through but i’m sure it’s well worth a look. Check out the website for clothing and their blog, I hope their site proves as succsessful as the shop was.
On the plus side an amazing shop called Goodstead has just relocated their store from Bread Street to the busier and more central location of Rose Street. I went to the shop yesterday and its amazing space, well worth a visit if you’re in Edinburgh. They also have an extensive online store with brands like Surface to Air, Sixpack France, Wood Wood and Gsus Sindustries to name a few. They also have an extensive collection of trainers with more brands on it’s way. Owners Graham Blakey and Ian Craigie have done a fantastic job with this stylish boutique in the heart of Edinburgh.
