Hello, hello little darlings, it’s been a while since I last posted. (Forgive me for these last two weeks have been a complete and utter blur!)
I love, love, love this set that I created on Polyvore an incredible amount! The bohemian feel of the shirt, the tribal print + fabric and the cut on it has permanently put it on my wish list – until I get it anyway (hopefully). Leather skater skirts are gorgeous, glamourous even if one gets the right fit and shade of black but few wear them right in my experience. It just makes them look so boring! Which is why until I put this ensemble together I’ve never really been a fan of them (narcism at its best haha)
The purple watch was just too funky to pass up when I came across it. I had originally been looking for a bracelet of a darker purple like shade but discarded the idea immediately after seeing the watch. Ain’t it cute? Cat eye glasses are also a huge trend in the fashion circuit right now – Get yours while stocks last. They just ooze sophistication and 1950/60’s glamour. I need a pair myself to be honest. I’ve always had a real passion for accessories – to the extent of going into overdraft on my bank account for them- the black bandanna and spread eagle necklace are both items I want/need in my life and pairing them together for this outfit was a real treat for me. The bandanna + the cat eye glasses were inspired by a vision I had about 1950’s pin ups.
And how adorable is the Kate Spade umbrella! So contemporary, so chic, so practical, so stylish and fitting for a bout of Monday morning blues. Also say Olaaa to the wonderful Nicholas Kirkwood sandals. I was going to complete this outfit with chunky platform boots but then thought of these babies and knew it had to be the latter. They are quite honestly the perfect shoes.
All hail Lady Gaga. I tend to include a bit of beauty in most of my created sets, for this one I chose Lady Gaga’s FAME. The eau de parfum and its alleged contents sparked interest over the main social networking sites when it first came out and although I myself was a bit put off by what I heard, you cannot knock the scent. It definitely smells too divine to discard because of a few pesty rumours.
Hope everyone has a wonderful week ahead!

Bag – Vintage Fendi (Ebay)

I was on the train on the way back from the private viewing of artist Halima Cassell’s new work at the Contemporary Ceramics Centre and was caught up in my own mind as always, I had been thinking  ‘I wonder why I haven’t seen anyone style long shirt dresses/jackets with t-shirts in so long’. Twenty seconds later (maybe thirty) I saw this girl walking in from of me. I legit could not contain my glee! And of course I asked to photograph her. This is genuinely such a great look.  It’s so… chic. The only flaw I could see with this as a whole was the green fedora hat (I didn’t think it flowed too well) but it didn’t look too out of place either.

Another detail that caught my eye was the vintage Fendi bag, now I adore all things Fendi and I can’t help but think I had seen it before in a charity shop in Brick Lane. I was right. It was the SAME exact bag I had been ogling two weeks ago, how strange! Perhaps this is the universe’s way of letting me know I should have bought it when I had had the chance.

Now I saved the best for last. I saw this amazing couple in Kings Cross St Pancras station and was awe-spired by their synergy. The vibrant colours, eye catching mix and match prints/patterns, the makeup, the facial hair? Wow. Just wow. I ran towards them as soon as they came into my range of peripheral vision. Asides from looking incredible in their chosen attire they are also well travelled, the clothing they are wearing has been collected from various corners of the globe. Be it from Thailand, Japan or Australia, you name it, they were wearing it.

A relationship in which both complement the others style, that mi amor, is what I want. Find me a man who’d agree to go out in public with me when I sport Princess Leia buns and he may put a ring on this finger. It would just be an added bonus if he wore his hair that way too 😉

I love, love, loved the floral printed trousers! The baggy pants paired with the well fitting black t-shirt with the leather pocket and the grey beanie + the gold pineapple necklace was a marvellous mix and match. I wish more men would embrace the floral hues and prints that the spring/summer seasons throw at us every year.

There’s a reason as to why many people (not just I) find Brazilian people so attractive, its not only their charming disposition or the fact that they speak one my favourite languages, it’s also due to their exotic style and manner in which they carry themselves.

And this Brasileiro carried it off perfectly!

This look whispers one word to me, a genteel, whimsical word that reached its peak popularity in France in the early 19th century; Bohemian.
