Firstly, i'm sorry that the quality of these photos aren't that great, shooting inside, i'm finding to be a little bit hit and miss. I've had this vintage jacket for years now and i've only ever worn it once or twice but finally I was inspired to once again style and wear this velvet piece.
So I much prefer to take photos outside and obviously I prefer to share my outside photos on the blog. But the weather continues to mainly be awful, the rain has been pretty bad in the Southwest, a lot of homes have fallen victim to flooding, though luckily the village we live in is fairly safe from that. Though that's not the only reason why I have taken photos inside a little more over the last couple of weeks, sometimes I just think it's nice that every now and again I share what I wear on the day's when i'm at home and when i'm of the opinion that the outfit deserves just a few shots. But don't worry, I promise i'm not going to be sharing my jogger and hoodie attire with you all any time soon, well, unless things get desperate!
We don't have the best natural lighting in our home, which is annoying but it'll do. Simple in a thick-knit sweater, an old favourite leather skirt and yes once again, my Isabel Marant loafers. And still one of my favourite things to do, is to throw a tie on it. I find it crazy that more often then not I resort to a tie to add that finishing touch.
So, I thought it was about time I got a little more creative with this kilt of mine. I started with my forest green sweater, I really liked how it complimented the colours of the skirt. Obviously some trousers had to make an appearance, so I went with classic denim and because we all know I can't stop wearing them, my Marant loafers were my footwear of choice. Layered blazers and a beanie for touch of good old urban-coolness concluded my kilt challenge.
It's taken me a while to get these photos uploaded to the blog but here is what I wore up to London a couple of weeks back to attend the KTZ show during LCM. Sorry the lighting of the photos is a bit off but my friend and I were darting around London like crazy and by the time we finally had a minute to take some shots, it was pretty dark but considering my friend has never taken my outfit photos before nor used an SLR camera, I don't think he did to bad.
London collections Mens is sooo different to ladies London fashion week, a lot quieter which is kinda nice in a way. The KTZ show was very cool (I nabbed a front row seat, don't think I was supposed to be there though but the lady sat me down there, so I wasn't going to say no. FYI the view is so much better) The collection was full of texture, they showcased some all white looks as well as a lot of monochrome, with interesting details, like mirrored embellishments, whilst still bringing that sense of edgy urban-coolness to the collection. BIG thank you to Propercorn for making that special day possible! And also thank you for the porpercorn popcorn, sweet & salty rules!
