H&M shirt
vintage slip dress and sunglasses

badge from LACMA

Recognise these lampposts? You should (I reckon they must be the most photographed lampposts in the world). I'm back at LACMA a year later... and hopefully this may well become a yearly thing! Back in LA, one of my favourite cities in the world, but only a short stop this time. Just enough time to see art, shop and chill the hell out. :)

PS. Yeah so I know in the last post I said I was back to blogging, and it's since been over a month.... life. I am going to make a concerted effort now (at least until uni takes over my life again). Starting with holiday pics!

jacket from India
mother's velvet trousers
Primark heels
vintage sunglasses

On a visit to Portobello Road with my mom, I became enamoured with some vintage sashiko-style (but I think Deshi in origin... I don't know the right term... research needed) jackets/coats but my mother bemoaned the fading and the wearing. Then she returned from a trip to India with this for me, what a cutie! And pink too! :)

secondhand dress
Topshop crop top
Doc Martens
beaded necklace from India
bag from Sydney
tiara made by me

I've been wanting both a shirt dress and a pink shirt mens for a while so voila, finding this dress was the perfect combination. And this adorable bralet matches it so unexpectedly well! I've come to enjoy my mint green hair (just trust me on this; it looks a different colour ever day and in every photo) and it clashes wonderfully with pink. Good thing I have a lot of pink. :)

Being a little too occupied with life, I sadly missed out on blogging my hair in evolving shades of pastel purple/blue/green, but I am pleased to say it is nearly, hopefully, almost back to white. (Apart from the purple patches above my ears - no idea where they came from! Hair dyeing is so unpredictable.) Also, after the sauna that was London after the past couple of weeks, I'm spending most of this week in Manchester where the weather is still pleasant but significantly more bearable. As well as my white feeling (not over yet), I'm also wearing lots of blues. Blame it on the hair. :)

robe made by me
vintage sunglasses
McQ shoes

This time of year, every year I get a weird craving for wearing white... white floaty things. This is closest I have... prepare for a week of white out. OH, also I somewhat accidentally dyed my hair purple, its washed out to blue and this is the result... I enjoy it. :)

gifted shirt
Clio Peppiatt skirt
platform Converse
wings from San Diego
gifted tiara customised by me

Black lipstick makes anything and everything look a hundred times cooler, especially with this hair. These are a few snaps of what I wore to the Female Matters exhibition curated by young designer Clio Peppiatt (my boss for the summer) and Ione Gamble of Polyester zine. Amazing feminist art, lots of friends/people I admire, and all in support of anti-FGM charity The Dahlia Project. Fashion is great sometimes. :)
