Me x Pixie Market

I'm really excited to post these photos up because I spent a lot of time envisaging how I would photograph and edit them...lately i've been wanting to take my photos in a different direction aesthetically and I'm happy to say that I am almost there (where almost there is the best place to be). Picked a few cute pieces from the treasure trove that is Pixie Market...not really styling towards a coherent theme but rather choosing pieces that caught my eye down to the tiny details....be it the beading, zippers or bell sleeves. Most of these were taken on my Fujifilm x-pro 1 with the exceptional film pics (by who other than my Stephanie aka. voluntary sibling). I hope you like my new labor of love, let me know what you think in the comments or just holla at me if felt necessary. 

outfit two: Pixie Market trousers and crop.
outfit three: Pixie Market dress and leather jacket.

Christmas with Selfridges

People here in the UK take Christmas very seriously...and i'm not complaining. The lovely people over at Selfridges asked me what I'd add to my wish list this year, and when the yellow bag beckons, you answer. Choosing a list of theoretical Christmas presents from the site is not easy to say the least, and as you can tell I chose to stray from my usual jersey-laden / black shoe (ok, a pair was enough restraint) adorned comfort zone and instead opted for things on the glitzier side. I figured this was a special opportunity to 'choose' items on the girlier side (aside from the slightly predictable/irresistible LBD/leather jacket/ loafer combo), and also because with theoretical Christmas gift lists, you needn't worry about being a constantly tripping giant in heels. Hey, if you're going to be impractical and indulgently glamorous, 'tis the season to do it. 

Which items are your favourites? If you're compiling a wish list of your own, don't forget to tempt yourself with more shoesdresses and bags...happy shopping!

Go with it

Taken on what was definitely the coldest day in London since I've arrived, in front of what locals and tourists alike deem the ugliest building in London. Called for this very insulating hug of a coat and probably not eating lunch outdoors, though that's what we decided to do. I could probably hide 8 packs of chips under this coat and no one would realise. As a side note, I've had a revelation (but not really) that the longer I've blogged, the less thought I've given to the aesthetics of an outfit and more into its comfort/practicality. At first glance this statement somewhat resembles a boast but what I'm really trying to say is that I've worn the same black skinny jeans for the past week and a half- no one's confronted me yet so I'll take it as a sign to keep the streak going.

Paris in film

Some cheeky shots taken from our Airbnb abode last weekend in Paris....i'm only beginning to appreciate the web of destinations surrounding London and my mind is already full of places i want to visit next. Our place was such a dream- a token parisian flat that would make every instagrammer snap-crazy and conveniently situated in a neighbourhood with coffee, baguettes, kebabs and a parisian drugstore (!!!) on every corner. You'll see more of it in upcoming posts, but for now here were some of my favourite moments during our short stay...lazy mornings in with magazines,  and pre-halloween nighs out- fake blood and all. 

P.S. if you're intrigued, click here to receive credit for your first Airbnb booking...have fun finding your second home!
