Okay, this post is slightly (very) more politically charged than any other I have ever written or will ever write. Which is also why I chose to put up pictures of me looking generally dissatisfied. Recently, I’ve been overwhelmed with information about the Brexit campaign and personally, I think it’s an incredibly stupid one at that. Why would you choose to leave the EU when doing so would probably – most definitely in my opinion- lead to another recession? (I quite like being able to travel freely through Europe too)

The Brexit campaign in my eyes is entirely based upon prejudice and racism which supporters of anti-immigration revel in. Furthermore, the UK would lose out on investment from abroad and in the long run, the power of its financial sector would diminish. Bye bye influence on the global economy!

I’ve been talking to friends, family and even strangers about the upcoming EU referendum and how incredibly important it is to vote to remain. Some of the people I have talked to were actually going to vote to leave but had no reasoning behind why they had decided to do so – which was frustrating for me. And that’s when I realised that quite a few people will ultimately vote for Brexit or not at all due to being unable to gather sufficient information or judging the situation superficially. This vote really does matter to every single person that lives in Britain as its outcome will directly affect us all.

Now, I don’t normally voice my opinion in politics or on anything at all really on social media platforms but this is too important to glaze over. So, I wrote a little poem to kind of sum it up, this is also the first time I’ll be sharing my poetry on ModainLondres 🙂

 

Leaving without cause for letting

Creeds drawn up over times unteeming.

Investment drying over periods of heavy rain

We can’t possibly choose not to remain

Deafening roars of self subjugation versus a country with flourishing life

Resurrection

Of commerce and communication,

Thoughts and contemplating over treaties of trade

And financial sector complaints.

I would lose friends and so would you

If and when

The UK chooses to refrain

From staying,

Streaming,

Conducting,

Teaming with the EU.

Staying in benefits us all

Leaving will cause our country to fall.

 

(And my best friend will have to relocate to Germany so vote to stay thanks)

 

These are my two cents and although, I don’t wish to influence or corner anyone into accommodating my stance, I do want to urge everyone that is able to vote to look up information on the pros and cons. Make up your own mind on the issue and please, please vote! I know a lot of the time, we (I) think that your vote doesn’t make a difference but I know that if all the people who did think that took a stand, then the results of any election or vote for dairy-free ice cream in cafeteria’s would reflect their efforts. Ripple effect and all.

But yeah mainly vote so my best friends – both of them, won’t have to move away ok thanks xxx

Hey Hey,

So I’ve decided against writing posts that focus primarily on talking about what I’m wearing and why I chose to do so because I’ve come to realise that sometimes, I just throw things on and my outfits come through for me (I love those kind of days). More importantly, I got bored with blogging because I was trying to fit this niche of a fashion blogger that posts about just that and that’s not who I inherently am, and it’s why I guess I stayed away for so long.

This blog will now be an open space for anything and everything that inspires or interests me and with this change, my posts will definitely be more regular and well, more me. I’ll be putting my poetry up as well as little travel stories/rants/anything that comes to mind really and I hope you’ll all be accepting of that change. It’s definitely going to change ModainLondres’s layout and overall appeal – maybe – who knows really? (Social media Gods do)

That being said, I am still very passionate about personal style and honing/expressing your own identity through the clothes that you choose to adorn yourself with. Like, hey peg trousers where have you been for the majority of my life? I’m way too much of a committment-phobe to commit to wearing skinny jeans 5/7 days a week and I never quite understood the aesthetic of loose-fitting clothes until quite recently – okay major lie*

I understood, I just didn’t think it was for me – until I rediscovered these trousers in my wardrobe, like damn, I think I might have worn them all week if I wasn’t so regimented with my denim. The khaki top was a birthday present from my sister – thanks again xx and it is so comfortable and the right level of cropped, it’s short but not short enough to feel outed by the cold and that just makes me happy (and warm)

Plus its a great summer colour *prays for sunshine tomorrow*

I’m also going to attempt to trangress the boundaries within which I feel comfortable and so there will be also be a few beauty and (LUSH) hauls on here fairly soon!

And I solemnly promise not to disappear for another 8 months

Minimalist color schemes, I feel are perfect for these dreary English Monday’s and I’d love nothing more than to drag myself out of bed at 6 a.m. and put on this entire ensemble before heading to work with a Starbucks in my hand. Definitely the ideal work outfit for my dream job working as a fashion journalist/editor for a well known fashion magazine. (One day, one day.)
The lace detail on the otherwise simple black halter neck dress as well as the white over the knee lace stockings were inspired by Japanese Harajuku style fashion. Now not many people apart from those closest to me know this but I’m crazy about about Japanese culture; the food, the religious traditions, the cultural festivals, the social conventions, manga (one of my favourite things in the whole world) and most especially, the fashion!
There are different categories within the Harajuku sense of style and the one I picked on for this look was a mix of kei visual/kawai. Overall I wanted to integrate those elements with a very urban street style look hence the lush bomber jacket. Another vision of inspiration for me was the Meidham Kirchhoff S/S 14 collection. Now I have gushed to friends and sometimes strangers about this particular collection, it is quintessential and I want nothing more than to own a piece of it.

(For those that wish to fulfill this wide-eyed desire of mine, my birthday’s on Wednesday – email for my postcode ;))
I didn’t notice it up till now but the ensemble I composed is very similar to the top right Meidham Kirchhoff collection piece isn’t it? This has all been done subconsciously I swear! How absolutely breathtaking is the collection though? (I feel incomplete without it)
I’m definitely going to buy all the jewelry I chose to complement the outfit, they’re all statement pieces and I chose to focus on rings more so than anything else because well, I have a thing for them. A real heady, intoxicating appeal for them. The ear cuff and necklace although sold by different labels look like a aesthetic set which is part of the reason I chose to pair them together however with this outfit it may be better to leave the choker out as it could understate the lace detail of the dress. I really want all of these items for myself. Really do.
Now on to the beauty products, the Tom Ford Black Orchid lipstick looks to be a deep purple shade but is actually a dark red and is surprisingly wearable in at least 4 different ways – as a stain, as a class lipstick, as blush, and with a gloss over. Very durable and very chic. The Rimmel Scandalous Eyes Waterproof Eyeliner is another favourite of mine. Last week I searched four different department stores on both Oxford Street and Bond Street to find it and lucked out at the Boots in the West One shopping Center in Bond Street Station. These babies are selling out fast and I definitely know why. This eyeliner is the best I have come across in years, being not only smooth but also long lasting, waterproof and easily applicable!
As for the glasses… they’re just really cool.
Here’s to hoping the weather gets better! Bjs **
