Minimalist ways.

20:25







 Necklace- Portobello Market
Kimono Top- Market
Skirt- India
Shoes- H&M
Shirt and Socks-Asos

Sorry for the delay between blog posts, it feels like I've had a lot of work yet I haven't got much done- as usual. Whilst musing over Pre Fall 2011 Collections, such as Balenciaga, Viktor and Rolf, Albino, Moschino to Philosophy; I got a regal and preppy vibe, clashed with chinese styled embroidery (to a certain extent).Preppy- Hipster-granny popped into my headI immediately thought about a kimono top I bought for £5-perfect. Then mixed with argyle socks, tartan wedges, and my indian skirt(complimenting the kimono). It was EXTREMELY difficult to take the photos, it's so hard to find a plain and non-cluttered spacious area in my house, hence the dodgy staircase position.

On the other hand whilst flicking through the Pre Fall collections, I was somewhat disappointed by the still apparent minimalist trends that have been developing since last year and beyond. Means vintage shops to Camden to Fabric stores will be calling my name. I'll be looking through a lot more paintings, Fashion history books, cultural references to fabrics for inspiration for upcoming season.

Will be replying to all your wonderful comments this week, keep it up. Feel free to email me, and have a great week!

Off to learn french now, Au Revoir ;)
