I mean, the title reads me for filth but it is mostly inspired by the fact that my phone is in my hands – once again. I may just set up a 10 sec self timer for the next blog post but we’ll see what happens when it happens.

This outfit is probably one of my favourites of this year, it’s elegant and super classy yet very me, yah girl loves to show a bit of skin and the peek of midriff keeps it feeling ebullient.The suit has a very tailored look to it and it fit so well, it was almost like it had been personally tailored. It made me feel like I was part of the mafia, waiting for Sonny to hit me back about where he dumped the body of our competition. Yeah, I felt mad boasyyy ∞

The perfect fall fit, trench coats as you all know are some of the most versatile collection pieces around and this one goes with almost everything in my closet.

I’m sure some of y’all thought I’d fall off this week – like I can’t even remember the last time I had two consecutive posts but ModainLondres is going to go through a renovation. My next couple of post segments won’t be about style but travel and perhaps, even a personal photography project that I’m working on.

Whatever it be, I’ll be around and I hope you guys are too x

Alternative Beige TrousersAsos (All you have to do to recreate the look in the photo is roll up the pant legs!)

Plaid Long Shirt Dress – I managed to find an almost exact match at YesStyle! A shorter version is however available at UNIQLO if that’s more preferable

Boots – Also found these beautiful boots on Ebay!  Definitely grabbing myself a pair as soon as I can!

 

I shot this couples photo at the Fashionstyleologer fashion book launch and just came across it now. Absolutely loved this woman’s style so decided to make it my next post as it is still technically street style fashion.

I’m not a big fan of wearing leather bralet’s during the day but I liked how it was considerably tamed down by the beige trousers and plaid dress shirt. A very casual and cool look 🙂

 

Fashionstyleology Book Launch

As promised, I’ve made a post exclusively for the photos I took on the night of the book launch. There was so many people there of varied work backgrounds, ethnicities and they all had their own wonderful version of style.

These are just a few photos of those that really caught my eye that night!

Designer Mahtab Jamali of Katayoon London looked amazing dressed in her own design and as did the designer Dorotea Pospihalj (below) also dressed in Katayoon.

I can honestly say his was one of my favourite looks of the evening!

Some of the people photographed even featured in the Fashionstyleologer London Street Fashion book!

I honestly do think that every fashion interested being should purchase this book. Not only is it able to encapsulate the habitual street wear trends of fashion at its best but it does so in one of the greatest fashion capitals in the world, London!

You can pre-­‐order a copy of the book ‘Fashionstyleologer: London Street Fashion’ by emailing book@fashionstyleology.com.

I asked to photograph this woman on a whim when a friend and I were in Starbucks because I loved how laid-back and casual her outfit was, as well as being very fashion conscious. Imagine my surprise when she told me that she was a fashion designer called Dorotea Pospihalj. The stars must have shown in my favour that day as I got invited to the exclusive fashion book launch of ‘Fashionstyleologer: London Street Fashion’  on the 12th of September by her associate.

The book is the collaborative work of 200 street fashionistas covering over a 100 streets with 50 exclusive photographers from 25 nationalities.

I for one am thankful for the opportunity as well as excited to attend the event. I hope to write about it, so there should hopefully be a short article and pictures up by this weekend!

Other than that, I hope everyone’s having a good week! 🙂

Beijinhos,

Nailah **
