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

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. :)

K's Ashley Williams jumper
vintage top and sunglasses
McQ shoes
bag from Singapore
hat from a pound shop
Tatty Devine necklace

Now that I've finished uni for the year you'd think I'd have more time for blogging but London life is crazy busy (no complaints). So I finally made it all the way to white hair! AND I LOVE IT! And everyone else loves it too. And I think it makes me look more tanned.... To be honest, after all I've put my hair through (something like six rounds of bleach, wut), it's in pretty good condition. Yeah it's fluffy but come on, it was fluffy naturally (don't brush curly hair). :)

Boater

Asos jacket and skirt
top made by me
River Island shoes
vintage sunglasses
old straw boater
H&M earrings


This is an outfit I really liked but didn't get chance to shoot myself (you can probably tell by the vastly different photography style) - these photos were taken by the lovely lady (oops, didn't get her name) behind the Street Style Carousel out in Spitalfields last weekend. The weather has been beautiful (minus a few notably horrible days) so I have been breaking out the summer straw hats! :)
