The Best & Affordable Dresses for the Holidays 2016

It’s not long until Christmas (… soon after that New Years) and some of you may want to be extra festive and wear a red dress for the occasion. I recently got myself two red dresses for the holidays for under £50 and discovered so many more out there in a variety of styles and lengths to suit everyone’s taste. If…

A Change in Direction

During the past month, a few things in my life have changed. I moved out of an apartment I had lived in for two years, whose atmosphere I was no longer enjoying. It was an environment that was not helping me to create the kind of content I wanted to and felt more like a prison than a sanctuary. I…

Kyoto Garden

Slowly but surely, things are coming together. Around this time of the year, I get anxious about the amount of work I have done and goals that I have achieved since the start of the fall – last September. I try and push myself as much as possible and have to remind myself to keep the momentum going everyday, regardless…

Thigh High

If you thought the weather man warning of potential snow in London would stop me from wearing a short dress in the dead of January, then you are sadly mistaken. Thanks to the invention of the thigh high sock and its partner in crime, the thigh-high boot, those hemlines can keep getting shorter and shorter during the winter. You’ll still…

Flared

Suits are still a foreign concept to me. I have owned blazers and my fair share of pants but the two of them together as a matching suit has never been something I could quite manage. A few reasons for this has either been because the quality was not good enough, the cut was not right, the lengths of the…

Blue Suede

There is a whole variety of suede options floating around on the internet this Fall and one destination that has some of the best and most affordable pieces is good old Asos. I was at their headquarters just yesterday and saw some of their gorgeous a-line skirts. Dare I say, I wanted them all ! But choosing this blue skirt from…

Black is Beautiful

Black in the middle of July, you ask? The answer to that is living in London where this past week we had a spell of rain and grey clouds. While continental Europe is tanning and sipping mojitos by the beach, England is ready for the fall season. I love summer whites as much as the next person, but this week…

Lagerfeld

Part three of my black and white look book which is now live on my Youtube channel is a laid back, punk rock festival look. I say punk rock only because of my Karl t-shirt that shows half of his skull, otherwise true punk rockers would find this outfit an insult to their sense of style. So let’s call this…

City of Angels

In the last of my LA series of posts, I decided to leave the best for last. When I think of LA, denim cut off shorts and plain t-shirts come to mind. It is, after all, practically the uniform out there. Even as the sun was setting when we were shooting by LACMA, the temperature remained warm enough for shorts. I…

El Matador

Flashback to this time last week when Kevin and I drove to Malibu, in particular El Matador beach, to sink our feet into the sand and splash around in the chilly Pacific Ocean. I never knew how cooler beaches on this side of the world were. I am so used to the amazing temperatures of the Mediterranean that I never…

Poetic Justice

Mom jeans, yes ! You know I love a shapeless jean to hide those untoned thighs right before open-thigh season arrives. I forget I own skinny jeans and at the rate I plan on doing food posts, they shall never see the light of day. See, I was going for a Janet Jackson ‘Poetic Justice’ look here but thought I…

Denim Doubles : Asos Magazine

Never in a million years would I have thought that I would run an online store and have the company under which I run it recognise my work. Asos magazine found me through my online vintage store Zenzele which operates under Asos Marketplace and got myself and friend Cobbie to do a Double Denim feature on friends who share a love…

London Fashion Week aw15

Saturday mornings don’t get as exciting as those that land on fashion week. Not that the weekend feels anything like its normal self but yesterday was jam-packed with shows which were all at Somerset House (thank God). The less running around ordering a car, the better. I started off at Orla Kiely’s presentation, set in what was a library filled with…
