Checkered Coat – Asos

Checkered Pants – Asos

Blue Satin Shirt – Stravidarius (Sold Out)/Alternative: PLT

 

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

Roses are red and violets are blue but I prefer Orchids

Earrings – Zara

 

Back at it again with a spicy red number that make me think of those lil hot chilli sweets most people don’t like but I love.

I’ve low key hacked a way to take my own photos and so my excuse of not having a photographer to take my fit pics is no longer valid. God bless remote live shooting. (This is also why you’ll see my phone in my hands in most photos – don’t you worry, I’ll figure out a way to hide it better)

Now, there’s not much I can say about this outfit, except that it’s super comfortable and cosy despite giving you all the shoulder and the masala tea. Red is my colour, it signifies warmth, love, sexuality, passion, intensity and danger and with Scorpio Season fast approaching, who would I be if I didn’t seek to embody all those traits.

You may also have clocked that my title has nothing to do with this post – apart from the inclusion of the overarching colour scheme. Wellllll, it’s the first line that popped into mind and with this year highlighting the importance of authenticity in my life, I’ve decided to just put out what I feel or think – with minimal editing. Life’s too short to construct sentences that seek to worm their way around people’s self interest or audience like-ability. Can I get an amen?

 

Amen.

 

Until next week,

Stay genuine xxx

T-Shirt – Pimkie

Trousers – Zara

Sliders – Fila

Eyewear – HM

I don’t often shop at Zara but they have done well by me on the last shopping excursion I had (R.I.P Overdraft). These pants are probably my favourite thing in the world at the moment, they give me so much life with the socket buttons at the bottom half that can be fastened to show a sexy bit of leg (and give you a bit of the breeze in warm climates) or kept shut to give a more demure kind of look. They remind me a bit of speed racer (and I just googled the cartoon to see if that made sense) with the colour scheme and I can totally see him rocking these if he were a bit more fashion orientated – I mean the red scarf is still a look and who know, maybe I’ll incorporate that staple into a look with these beauties at some point.

The shirt is a simple little statement that I rock to the core, after all – FUCK THE PATRIARCHY! is definitely one of my favourite phrases (and genuinely, fuck it to hell and beyond). There has been a rivulet of pro feminist protest T-shirts this year, with Marc Jacobs (amongst many other designers) including them within their brands and I have wanted one for quite a while now, so when I saw this simple little number at Pimkie, I thought, why not? I want one, it’s super cheap, let’s get one! So I got it. I think style is an incredibly personal expression of one’s self and I’m with the idea of having my clothes express my thoughts, what I stand for and believe in, as well as what I don’t.

Now I wasn’t partial to sliders for a very long, long time but a good friend of mine (S/O to Princess Fabia) swore by the comfort of hers and I gave it a go with the FILA sliders. I’ve got to admit that she was right, they are by far the most comfortable shoes I have ever had and they’re pretty cute too (and they match the colour scheme of the trousers!). I went pretty bare on the accessories with this one, my fashion shades from H&M were the only thing I had on. And they kind of paint the world in sunlight when they’re on your face – something I appreciated very much in London (Lisbon, not so much)

Overall, I’m just really excited to make the most of my cute ass pants. Look out for more on ModainLondres soon!
