On a sunny saturday morning in London, there is only one thing to do...chill on grass and have a picnic with a good friend! The day began with layering a 3 quarter sleeve low cut twenty8twelve black midi dress with a structured crew neck Monki top. The two elements of harsh and soft meshed well together, which sprung a positive outlook on today. I later met up with a friend and went to broadway market to get some food before heading to the Fields sitting and talking for hours.

Within our discussion, our ideas for our next fashion media project came up. Mine was going to be about showing how small details matter, and my friend [Kaby] brought up the touchy subject, body image. Our time off really helped inspire these themes for both topics. For mine specifically, I wanted to show ways to appreciate the little things in design, and in general life. But I'm struggling to find ways to channel that idea in a fashion media context. Help?

Last Minute Prom Feed?


Just had a thought about the prom goers out there! Hello!!

I read somewhere that some girls plan their prom dress a year ahead of the event...if not more! However, from my experience, prom was literally a week after exams. So a lot of my friends were busy revising for the months before it happened, thus, had no choice but to shop last minute for that one prom dress. Sometimes clutches and shoes as well if they had time. Personally, I didn't stress about it. However, for those of you in THAT situation, or, have a last minute event to go to..Here are some looks I've "curated" that you can buy on from my minipopup shop. They're eclectic, ranging from quirky to dark. Leggooo!

BLEHCK



Factory: Caged Heat Net Maxi Dress (US $29), Strategia: 110mm Stretch Ankle Boots (US $321), Anya Hindmarch: Crisp Palette Metal Clutch (US $1638)

FIYAH!

Dolce and Gabanna: Polka dot-print stretch-silk dress (US $2095), Maria Frances Pepe: Never is a promise necklace (US $3729), Charlotte Olympia: Team Spirit Platform suede wedges (US $1259), Vlieger&Vandam: Guardian Angel embossed leather sleeve (US $332)

BELLELEGANT-EDGE

Alberta Ferretti: Tiered Silk Gown (US $4140), Alaia: Leather lace up leather sandals (US $2915), Dolce and Gabanna: Embellished woven clutch (US $2466), Sveva: Clorofilla Necklace (US $1177)




If you've noticed, I'm not one for the typical satin pink/blue/whatever gown a lot of girls gravitate towards. I don't believe you should have to spend so much on something you can't really wear again. From listening to some of my ex classmates talk about their past prom gowns, I was shocked to discover that they spent the same amount of money as a Dolce & Gabanna gown on their own satin disaster. Also, prom dresses don't necessarily need to be long despite popular belief! It doesn't make you look any better. The best thing is to bring your smile and personality, and that makes you ultimately look great!

Hope these unprofessional collages inspire some of you that need to go to prom or an event anytime soon :/
