The final instalment of my ‘three ways to wear’ featuring this snazzy pink ASOS cross body, this time glammed up in what would be my ideal summer night out outfit. Black isn’t traditionally the most summery of shades but this LBD would work perfectly with a tan (if only I had one) on a balmy summer date with a handsome fella! I know you’ve seen these sandals before in my Athens looks, but now that the sun is finally starting to show it’s face here in London they’ve only just become appropriate.
All the way back in 2015 I was invited to Zandra Rhodes’ amazing London penthouse to view the SS16 People Tree x Zandra Rhodes collection. In an era of white walls and elegant rose gold accents for that minimalist Pinterest worthy look, it was refreshing to find the apartment as kooky and fun as Dame Zandra’s style. There was so much serious decor #goals!
A bit of a wishful thinking outfit for y’all today, pulling out the ultimate summer holiday dress from ASOS Africa despite lacking the necessary sun, or a holiday.
This is one of those dresses where once you’ve put it on, you don’t want to take it off. It makes a statement with a bold print, it’s super swooshy, a little bit sexy (that deep v!), plus it has POCKETS. Yussss. If I was a designer, everything would come with pockets. It’s one of the (very few) drawbacks of being a woman, our clothes just aren’t designed to be practical most of the time. Jeans with faked stitched pockets – what is that?!
Another day, another long list of things I love from ASOS. My choice form of procrastination whilst studying over the last month or so has been to sneakily open the ASOS ‘new in’ section and scroll through endless pages of product, placing everything I like in my saved items with the promise that “I can buy it as a graduation treat to myself when I’m done”. I’m technically done now but am obviously not buying any of it, because I’m officially an unemployed soon to be graduate with a heap of student debt. Not really conducive to an ASOS shopping spree.
Breaking my deadline-induced blogging hiatus because this look was too good to stay hidden away in my drafts for long. Y’all know I love a generous sprinkle of bohemian-ness in my outfits, so when Urban Outfitters asked me to style up a look inspired by the theme of ‘Bohemian Romance’ I was more than up for the challenge. The ‘bohemian’ is pretty straight forward – fringing, loose silhouettes, anything that goes with that flower crown snapchat filter. But romance? I always associate romantic looks with full-skirted silhouettes in pastel pinks for that “off to the diner to share a milkshake with the school quarterback in 1955” vibe. Anything pink and puffy, basically.
I actually searched the term ‘Bohemian Romance’, and it came up with a lot of very Pinterest-able brides donning flower crowns surrounded by fields and artfully decorated jam jars. A bit naff, so I decided to create my own little Mills and Boon, if you will, just without the scandalising naughty bits because this is a fashion blog and we don’t stand for that kind of stuff here.
