London Calling

LFW for Spring/Summer 2011-12 recently finished last week on the 21st September. There's something so unique about London fashion which I can't put my finger on it. This spring/summer season London brought out a sense of soft femininity but in a Rock n Roll I don't give a flying F*** kind of look. Not that this is a new concept for London fashion but it has evolved over the years; embracing more colour.

The colours for spring that came out this season wasn't your usual boring pastels; but you're rich colours of plum, cherry, mustard yellow, peach, olive green - a complete reverse from what we saw in the previous season where it was pop colour - blinding 
passer bys by the magnificent bright hues! 
London fashion certainly is a creative force to be reckoned with! 

Here are a few of my personal favourites:

LFW SS 11/12: Burberry Prorsum
LFW SS 11/12: Christopher Kane

LFW SS 11/12: Sass & Bide

LFW SS 11/12: Roksanda Ilincic

Someone Like You

The much anticipated music video for Adele's successful single from her second album 21 was released on 27 September 2011. 
This would have to be my favourite song by far. Not because it is a beautiful love song. 
But because it is a love song where love is lost but hope is not. Adele's voice is strong. Pure raw talent! One of a few artists who can bring such emotion where listeners find strength within themselves to keep moving.
What is your verdict?

Spring Look

More sunny warm days. More carefree days.

This Spring/Summer I hope to have a little more hair on the top of my head. I think it's time to grow my crop just a little longer. I've just got enough length to do a simple but small braided crown down one side that stops just behind my ear. I'm obsessed with french milkmaid braids at the moment...I smell a comeback thanks to Erdem's S/S 2011 collection.

Note to self: 1) invest in styling products, 2) invest in more colour and lace (you can never have enough!)
What will your spring/summer look be?

Going to the Chapel of Love

I love a weekend wedding. 
The anticipation and excitement that leads up to it. The preparation and organisation. The event itself. 
Overall it's an absolute celebration of love; between friends, lovers & soul mates. 
There's only one bad thing about weddings - the party eventually comes to an end. 
Here's to the next...

"we were given two hands to hold. two legs to walk. two eyes to see. two ears to listen. but why only one heart? because the other was given to someone else. for us to find."

a few shots I took at my friend Jenny's wedding last weekend:
decorative pews
bridesmaids shoes from ZU
