However, Yesterday I had the pleasure of accompanying my friend Sheridan Ward (hair stylist extraordinaire) to have coffee with Neil O'Keeffe, editor and designer of Valstrom Magazine. The first issue is available now from valstrom.com and for £5 is a necessary purchase for those wanting to be "on point" (yes I said it and i'm proud!) with regards to modern fashion. Directional yet accessible, the magazine is very fresh and is filled with content without reams of advertisements (in fact I checked again, there aren't any) which we all know dominate the pages of our beloved Conde Nast fashion bible (VOGUE to those staring blankly at the screen).

The look is slick and chic and I love the Topshop Unique boots to the left. Perfect if you are looking for the versatile black boot.

It is apparent the vibe is consistent from shoot to shoot, with quality at the core. Spikes are everywhere right now and I simply need a pair of the Burberry Prorsum spiked gloves.
Valstrom Issue 1 has arrived and I am certainly going to do my part to ensure that this platform is one that does not fall by the way side. I've got my copy, now go and get yours.
Is that CRISTO CLEAR?
