Bonjour mon petit fleurs,

I thought I’d be all charming and French for my first post in over 10 days(!) I admit that I have been quite bad but hopefully this look makes up for it ❤

I’m not quite sure how it worked out as well as it did but pictures don’t quite do this ensemble any justice. I got the blouse off the brilliant (and quite beautifully) priced Chinese retailer site AliExpress a couple of weeks ago and fell in love with it as soon as I saw just how much better it looked in reality than in the pictures on the site. I’ve been going through a monochrome phase which more or less started when I had a day trip out to Birmingham with a couple of close friends, so this outfit is one of the few I’ve put together over the last week.

The kaftan which I’ve been using as a drape over on top of my bedtime cami slips (don’t judge me! I just like to look good for myself rather than only doll myself up when in the company of a man – scandalous eh?), worked well over the shirt and being of a sheer material didn’t overshadow the blouse letting the two tone panelled detailing shine through. It gave me a really refined feel, like I was a divine priestess or something of that calibre. The skinnies were a necessity – of course, when are they not? And the chunky camden boots are my babies forever and ever. I hope they never wear out!

I didn’t really know what to do with my hair so just put it into a bun and attached the flower pin on to encapsulate that 70’s hippie vibe – Lover of nature? That I am xo

P.S Did anyone else notice the OVO decal on the store front? For those that are interested in Drake merchandise – the store behind me stocks it! It’s called Browns Focus and is on the street directly behind the one that houses Bond Street station.

Hope y’all like the fusion of elements in this look, be sure to let me know what you think 🙂

&

Happy Mother’s Day

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 😉
