What mainly caught my eye about this outfit was the layering involved. The element of denim combined with the satiny floral jacket and sleeveless hooded sweatshirt is almost soothing to the eyes. The long black blouse underneath seems to serve as a template on which the rest of the outfit pieces are presented on. That coupled with the snapback, simple black leggings and plimsolls creates a very fashionable overview.
You wouldn’t think the distinct pieces in this photo would mesh well together but here is the living proof that they do. They really do.

Kudos to this Italian beauty and her sense of style.

This is the first post on my newly established fashion blog and I really hope it gets a good response!

The story behind this picture is quite amusing. I went out in Central London with the aim to take pictures of people I found stylish and suffered from a momentary lapse of confidence when it came to approaching those people.

After a pep talk I received whilst buying a neck strap for my camera (as well as a threat from the most amazing people I know), I saw this girl walk past with a friend. Her outfit captured my attention immediately and I debated on what to do for a minute or two before making up my mind and running after her. I kid you not, I ran.

I’m glad she was the first person I photographed for this blog; 1) because she was incredibly nice and 2) because her adorable Spanish accent helped to calm my nerves.

I especially loved her shirt, which had an almost Neo-Gothic feel to it. That paired with the grungy cut out shoes, 1980’s acid wash shorts and black lipstick I feel created the perfect balance, without any of the individual pieces outshining the others.

Hope you dig this look as much as I did 🙂
