kimono/vintage    thigh high boots/office    dress/handmade

It's been SUCH a long time!! Writing here feels like a fond reunion with an old friend and I just want to spew out my whole entire life story. I feel like this year has been such a journey and played a very key part in my life. I've adopted the minimalism philosophy, began to pay more attention to politics (knowledge I always thought was important), began to think more strongly on issues regarding feminism, rape, democracy in Hong Kong and overall thinking more ethically about the things I buy - minimising waste, spending less and making a move towards cruelty free products. I feel like as a person I have improved, become more independent and overall nicer person. I still have a long way to go but every effort counts towards something, right?

Well, since jumping into the minimalism philosophy I've began to think carefully about my purchases. Though I think it is important to enthasise minimalism and treating yourself is not mutually exclusive! When you see something you absolutely love swaying temptingly on the hanger for £15, you cannot possibility say no! And that was the case with this amazing kimono I found in my local vintage shop.

This kimono is absolutely beautiful with red oriental embroidery detail contrasting against the sheer black fabric. It has earned me a few compliments and also got me street snapped when wearing it to GFW last week. I've also been loving wearing these chunky heeled over the knee boots. A casual substitute to a heel with a little more comfort. I've been wearing them a lot for drinks with friends.

Many thanks to Walu, my flatmate for taking these photos! I can't wait to attempt to get back onto this blogging game during the summer.

Much loves

My brother has been gifting Google products to people after his recent visit to their quarters in London, and as he puts it "everyone likes things more when it has google on it!". Pairing this tote with my retro Charizard print jumper - provided kindly by Sam- and my silver flatforms, I think it created a nice casual outfit with a hint of quirkiness and personality to it.
