What I Wore : Week of 25th July, 2016

Dressing for hot weather is challenging. It is hot, so you don’t want too much on, but then you don’t want to be too revealing. Wanting to feel comfortable in less clothes in the daytime has always been an issue for me. This year I began to embrace the shorts under skirt look and I have…

What I Wore : Week of 18th July, 2016

I have had this H&M Dress for years. The quintessential summer dress, it has been with me on every summer holiday to date, and worn on many a workday when the A/C was broken. It is a staple that I will carry with me for summers to come. Is it boring? A little bit, but…

What I Wore : Week of 27th June, 2016

When did my obsession with grey and black begin? I can’t be sure. Living in London, I must be slowly emulating the weather, the melancholy. 5 Grey t-shirts later, there are no signs of stopping.   Monday Grey V Neck – Asos Black Drawstring Trousers – New Look Trainers – Nike Roche Tuesday Grey Tshirt –…

What I Wore : Week of 20th June, 2016

I rarely like wearing brand names, and I generally don’t like brands in general. I don’t like to be a walking ad. But, I wear coke merch. I don’t like being a free ad for coke, per say, as I am sure they are one of the worst out there, but they have created a…

What I Wore : Week of 13th June, 2016

Jeans are kind of the worst. When I was younger and the low rise flares were in style, an ill fitting pair would result in plumbers butt. When the skinny came into fashion,the battle of zipping them up became an issue. I thank the Gods for lycra, because I went to Levi’s and their lack…

What I Wore : Week of 6th June, 2016

Some days you wake up and put on an outfit with the best intentions, but as soon as you leave the house, you know it was a poor choice…That was me on Wednesday. My pencil skirt t-shirt combo seemed to be a classic move, but it felt tight, constricted and completely threw me off. On…

What I Wore : Week of 30th May, 2016

If someone had to ask me what my favourite outfit was, I would have probably said “I’m not sure, depends on the day” – but the real answer has to be this denim shirt I bought at Beyond Retro. I wear it again, and again and again. Every single week. Go back and look at…

What I Wore : Week of 16th May, 2016

You can’t tell from the photo, but this sweatshirt says YALE. It is like a colourful, more psychedelic version of what probably exists for alumni, and I don’t know if the vintage shop made the version itself, or if some random person thought it would be cool to make alternations, or maybe it is authentic…

What I Wore : Week of 9th May, 2016

I joined my first London gym in 2013, and it was a swanky place near my work. I was by no means a morning person, but work friends gave me the motivation to attend 7am classes and then come into work. Packing everything the night before was always a bit of a nightmare; picking out my outfit, making sure…

What I Wore : Week of 2nd May, 2016

In the handful of years that I lived with my sister and we were the same size (she is 7 years older so it took me a while to catch up), it was really convenient sharing clothes, stealing clothes, essentially doubling my wardrobe. Throughout the years it has not been as easy, as most of…

What I Wore : Week of 25th April, 2016

I love going to Kingsland Mall aka Dalston Mall. This mall is more of an extension of Ridley Road Market, with kiosks where I am sure you can haggle your way down on the price of some Chinese luggage or a sectional couch. There are a few ‘Everything for £5’ stores, which end up having closing down…

What I Wore : Week of 18th April, 2016

Where were you when you found out that Prince died? I was at my desk, on Google Hangouts, and found out through IM. I was told so nonchalantly, in the middle of a chat about visas and immigration. I was stunned. Tears welled up in my eyes, and the world felt like it was shutting…
