OOTOD



No, it's not a typo.. it's an outfit of the other day (OOTOD). Although it is ending October, the weather has been pretty okay. I haven't needed a coat YET but I am excited to bring out the fur.

It is definitely chilly enough for polo/turtle necks to be a constant in your #ootds. I love polo necks but I really don't like spending too much on them because after all, they are pretty much like t-shirts. This stunning polo jumper-top is from Primark (of course). I guess I am a walking ambassador for Primani at the moment. I LOVE yellow's/burnt oranges/reds against my skin tone so I was immediately drawn to it. To tell you the truth, I think I am wearing it back to front - as in - the buttons should be at the back. HOWEVER I think it looks waaaay cuter with the beautiful gold/bronze buttons at the front though... very vintaaaaarrrge.

I live in black jeans to be honest. Like yes I blog in colour but if you saw me in person, I am usually in black jeans. I absolutely ADORE these beautiful coated Topshop jeans. I love the zip detail at the bottom and the high-waistedness of them. At the moment, jean/trouser ensemble is not complete until I add a cute buckle belt to it. It just adds a certain je ne sais quo to any outfit. 

Last but not least, my River Island babies... a visual orgasm and comfy as hell. Great shoes are to an outfit as water is to fish. OMG that is the worst hyperbole ever (i don't even think it even was a hyperbole). But you catch my drift.

Style Challenge with Farfetch.com

Farfetch.com recently challenged me to recreate a look most reminiscent of the leading lady of the movie of my choice - in celebration of film festival season. 

A challenge I could obviously not turn down - a chance to recreate an import piece of fashion history - heck yeah!

OF COURSE I chose to recreate a look from 90s fashion bible - Clueless (Cher as the leading lady) - 20 years on and Clueless is still one of THE best and most iconic fashion films ever made and an inspiration on many of the looks sported today. With their Mini skirts, plaid matchy suits, knee high socks, cute buckle shoes and totally quotable lines - Cher and Dionne were the envy of teenage girls everywhere! 

So here is it, a clueless look with a slight 2015 twist paying homage to two great 'visual mediums' - FASHION & FILM (F&F)!

S H O R E D I T C H




All the cool kids hang out in Shoreditch don't they? Trendy, arty Shoreditch. 
I've finally settled in to London living after almost a month here.. but I spend all my time in Shoreditch. Good vibes and unique places is why I love that place. 
This outfit is pretty Shoreditchy. Laid back cool if I do say so myself. The dress is a Sheinside number. A totally versatile babe piece. The boots are from TK Max a while back but the Topshop  boots everyone is rocking this aw15 is so similar. I won't say much now about the All Saints jacket because it honestly deserves a post of it's own - but AH-MAY-ZING doesn't even cut it!
