Please excuse my inconsistency with the blog at the moment – I hate being a sh*t blogger but sometimes it’s inevitable for real life to take over. This is a small way of making up for it. In my defence, these pictures are proof that I have actually been out and about, hence why my poor blog has been neglected. But the good thing is that this has forced me to make an effort on a daily basis – after feeling stuck in a style rut, it’s great to finally feel pretty pleased with some of my latest looks!
I am currently having a passionate love affair with lips – I have always loved these and especially lipstick mark prints, and have never understood why they’ve not had more of a moment in fashion. This season however I have finally seen quite a few lip-themed pieces on the high-street. I’ve bought four things altogether that have lips, and dug out a few lipsy bits from my wardrobe. My favourite outfit from this bunch is the first one – I went lip crazy and forgot how much fun it is to match! OTT indeed, but so satisfying!
Even though bright colours still dominate my style on a near-enough daily basis, I am starting to become fond of black again. It can be a bit much with my ever-so-slightly olive complexion and super dark hair, but I loved my outfit from last Friday. It was very unplanned (“Oh wow, I’m all dressed in black!”) but there’s a safeness and undeniable sophistication to black that can’t go unnoticed. Plus, I get to add a colourful accessory – I don’t think I could do everything in black.
Yes, a lot of these pieces are new – I shopped like a maniac in Hong Kong and bought a few things in London too. I was disgustingly naughty in January and February but haven’t gone too insane this month – shopping lists will follow shortly…
I promise to get back to regular posting soon – my life has been a bit chaotic lately (in a good way). Also, the weather in London has been surprisingly mild – which means I automatically dress better. A few nice outfit posts should definitely pop up this month…
