Felder Felder SS13

Leopard-print, lace and leather; That's what Felder Felder girls are made of. Although for SS13, the twins added bold hues of blue, violet and tangerine to their roster, alongside the swathes of chiffon. All in all, it was a welcome detour from their usual hard-hitting edgy rock 'n' roll aesthetic. 

That's not to say, however, that the collection didn't have that strong Felder feel about it. Floaty, almost ethereal chiffon skirts and dresses, sheer button-up blouses and one-pieces with floral appliques, along with an interesting graphic print, reminiscent of the changing tides of the sea pretty much sum up the Felder Felder look for next season. 

Oh and of course, there was that trusty leather jacket x skirt combo thrown in for good measure, because we all know nobody does offbeat and edgy womenswear quite like the Felder Felder girls.

F*CK! I'm In My Twenties

Those of you that are in a similar age bracket to us girls at Tantrum HQ will have undoubtedly woken up at least once in your life and thought "F*ck! I'm in my Twenties" (and if you haven't yet, believe us, one day you will!)

So what does this mean? What exactly do the wondrous years of your Twenties entail? And how do you get through that decade without totally screwing up your life? If you feel like you're at a dead end with a crappy job, a non-existent love life and friends that won't return your calls, fear not. This quirky new book by Emma Koenig provides sweet salvation in knowing that you're not alone in thinking that your Twenties suck.

Tongue-in-cheek and written with that perfect balance of feisty/quirky that only a girl can muster, this book is an honest and witty insight to the inner-workings of a twenty-somethings mind. Complete with handwritten scrawls and kitsch doodles about, well, LIFE, pretty much, this book is a godsend for those who need a little pick-me-up to get them through the best/worst/most awkward decade of their life. Welcome to your Twenties.
"F*CK! I'M IN MY TWENTIES" by Emma Koenig is published by Chronicle books and available here.
