A little black dress. We all know the tale of how fabulous an LBD can be. How it can magically transform a woman to be sleek, elegant and sophisticated. Audrey wore it best and the rest of all woman have tried to follow.
I love a great jacket. I am usually a fan of the leather types, but when I saw this rocker style one in Zara, I just knew I could work it in so many ways! I think the leather collar detailing makes it even more special and the oversized motorcycle shape actually works really well on my petite shape. It almost reminds me of a 50’s style “Grease” jacket but with a slight aztec inspired moment going on with it! Perhaps that description has a bit too much going on in it :p
Here is another perfect example of my in actual fact very casual sense of style. I chose this look to go for some drinks at a cool bar called the Terminus. The pink leather jacket was a Paris purchase. I found it in a cute, high end boutique store and it’s by a brand called Iro. It is made of the softest lamb skin I have ever felt and the discount on it was simply crazy! 1000 euros to 500 euros!
I’ll start by admitting that this outfit was for a dinner date. I loved it so much, I made my sister/photographer, take a few snaps as I was already running late out the door. But hey, fashion before boys :p
I actually bought these jeans the day before from Topshop. As often happens with my styling imaginations, it randomly came to be that ripped black jeans would look simply amazeballs with my pink Zara coat. It’s Disney princess sweetness mixed with British “it” girl edge.
This shoot happened on a random weeknight where I suddenly felt inspired to get all dolled up in my bedroom and pair my new Witchery turtle neck knit jumper with something else blue!
Speaking of my bedroom, it really is a lovely little location for a fashion shoot. My room is immaculately neat (this is the first thing everyone always comments on), extremely girly and has way too many odes to my love of NYC. You’d have to be a almost stupid to not realise this obsession within 10 seconds of entering my room! But the pinks, sparkles and grand collection of fashion books, do make it a cute room. It’s my little Camberwell fashion haven.
When I found this dress in a back lane way of Mykonos, I truly had my very own CarrieBradshaw moment (not that I don’t have them all the time with clothes haha). I fell in love instantly- the tulle, the bubble skirt, the modern ball gown shape, the pinks, the embroidery, the jewels and the sparkles- this dress is my dream. It’s the perfect party dress and the perfect statement dress. It tells the world how much fashion is part of my life. I really don’t see too many having the courage to wear a dress like this. In fact, given how unique it is, I really only see myself in it!
Paris. It really is a wonderful city. Throughout July I was summering in Europe with family. The trip in itself along and the family dynamics and dysfunction that came with needs a blog all of it’s own. Paris was our first stop. I had visions of taking photos for this blog in each city we were in. And although I honestly had the best intentions to do so each day, the actual holidaying and relaxing part seems to always get in the way! So alas these are my only cute blog photos from Europe! Perhaps this makes them even more special (or perhaps not :/ )
OKAY! So I guess this is my first official post on the blog. Although I’m sure no one is reading this, probably because no one actually knows it exists yet, I kind of like seeing my photos and fashion presented in this way. I’m free to write and ramble on as much as I want about my outfits and that is awesome. But I will put that down as task number one- gain some followers, even a few friends would be a good start.
