Ashamed to admit that we have abandoned the blog once again in favour of a bit of travelling! I came back from Paris last week, but things have been hectic as I rush to pack for home. I have almost forgotten how to dress for Summer already (this season is non-existant in the UK).

Here’s a couple of pictures taken whilst I was in Paris – didn’t get too shutter-happy this trip as I was more preoccupied with food and company!

Outfit breakdown:

  • Jacket: Zara
  • Top: ASOS
  • Skirt: Weekday
  • Scarf: Hermès
  • Shoes: Alexander McQueen
  • Bag: Balenciaga

I received this leather jacket from Akira a while back, but only managed to get around to photographing it now. London is finally warming up and this jacket is just perfect for the weather – it keeps the wind out, but don’t trap the heat inside like a spring coat would! My usual gripe with leather jackets are that most of them do not have functional pockets. I’m really glad this one does as I have been trying to do without a bag as of late. I have seriously been wearing nothing else but leather jackets these few weeks, if you don’t have one yet, go check out what they have to offer at the Akira boutique!

I have been obsessed with red recently for some reason. I bought what is possibly the brightest item in my entire wardrobe: a classic balenciaga city in coquelicot. I quite like how it stands out against my dark outfits, and red just goes so well with monochromes.

Contrary to the post title, I haven’t been feeling well at all lately, hence explaining my absence from the online world in general. I am not going to bore you with details since this is not a personal blog, but as the song goes: It’s a new dawn, it’s a new day, it’s a new life – and while I’m not feeling good, I’m going to fake it till I make it etc.

These pictures were taken ages ago but I’ve finally gotten around to posting them.

All the pictures are taken by Caroline, thank you so much!!

Outfit breakdown:

  • Blouse: ASOS

It is excessively hard to get people to take photos for you without feeling like you are being judged for being too vain… So sometimes you’ve got to make do with quasi-outfit posts like this, sorry.

A closer look at the boots I purchased a while back! The incline looks rather high, but the serrated soles provide a great grip which makes them easy to walk in!

Met up with Dawn 2 weekends ago in Amsterdam and decided to be really brave and bring these new McQueen knockoffs from taobao out for a spin. They were bought a few months ago and I would really love to include the link here but it seems that it has already been taken off since the sellers are moving into Spring/summer wear right now. I’ve gotten so many compliments that day and even had a salesgirl from Bobbi Brown telling me how much she needed them in her life.

The lighting wasn’t great due to the gloomy weather but it did manage to produce some hauntingly eerie effect in some photos.

And for obvious reasons, that is why they have windmills in Netherlands. My complex geometries vest was flapping all over the place. It was hard to keep a straight face while the hood isn’t staying where it’s supposed to be.

It’s also the last time I’ll be travelling for a while. I haven’t been able to find anyone who shares the same aesthetics as much as Dawn does and it’s really sad that I won’t be seeing her for a while.

Black Outfit Breakdown:

  • Pants: H&M
  • Leather Jacket (worn inside): All Saints Datya Jacket
  • Vest: Complex Geometries A/W 2010
  • Gloves: Lanvin
  • Leather Tote bag: Taobao
  • McQueen replica boots: Taobao
