Dreaming of a Warm Xmas

Spending some holiday time in warm weather this season? Perhaps you need a few "warm christmas-friendly" outfit ideas for casual or formal events where you don't necessarily break a sweat.

a) Are you going to a wedding in warm climate?

b) Is there a banquet(s)? Will you get a food baby? How fancy will it be on a scale of 1(no) to 10 (yes)?

c) What are you going to wear during the spare days? Are you going sight seeing, brunching n munching, meeting an old friend, visiting malls, or taking up a class in a warm country?

Happy Cyber Monday/BFAs/December! It's official, the spirit of christmas has infected London! Yesterday I was walking around the west end, only to find a mini "winter wonderland" in Leicester Square. The smell of fudge and fun was spreading all around town, I couldn't help but smile.

For this particular post, I wore a Burberry jacket I bought in hackney's own to "Bicester Village" (It's not called that, but pop over there's burberry/anya hindmarch/aquascutum at discount prices), my sick Ragged priest shirt dress which I can honestly wear anywhereeee, and my rick owen x adidas trainers which I now can't live without. ahhh.

Me and Nat were at the Victoria and Albert museum for Sibling's menswear fashion show as part of the museum's Fashion in Motion series, where they curated the most influential pieces. It was the day we saw pom pom heads, panda faces, and a shocking Rob Evans walking the runway. After that, we went to the other exhibits and I sketched (as per usual) what I saw. The End. The day was not to shabby I suppose..

SKETCHBOOK : Tate Britain

Had a hungover remembrance sunday strolling through the Tate Britain. It was peacefully quiet, more than I expected since London was focused on the Poppies at Tower Bridge that day. I went to see the who was up for the Turner Prize. The turner prize is awarded to a British artist under the age of 50 every year. It was named after the legendary painter Turner. 

Personally, I'm sad to say that the nominees "sucked" this year. There wasn't much shocking variety (I mean you can't beat the Tracey Emin year but still!) it was mainly...art film which got so boring towards the end. Basically, you know an exhibition was not good when you say "that's it?!" when it's over. The only artist I am routing for to win the award, is Tris Vonna-Mitchell. I thought his rhythmic audio during his film kept me (and others I saw in my surrounding) so captivated. It spoke to me!! Well, literally and figuratively speaking.

That night Nat and I attended the discussion by Showstudio with Maria Sharapova + Pedro Lourenco at the Nike Lab in Shoreditch. It revolved around the topic of sport, how it impacts fashion, Lourenco's collaboration with Nike, and apparently, women in power. Why apparently? Simply because whenever it was brought up (which was rarely) they didn't seem passionate or knowledgable when talking about it in my opinion, which disappointed me as a person who feels like it is such an important topic whether in sport or fashion. You can see the video for yourself on youtube, but they cut out so many great questions and completely mis-rephrased all the questions that were asked. I recorded the talk so I would know. Sassiness aside, I used to look up to Sharapova during my Tennis childhood stage, she was my favourite in the tennis magazine I used to buy every time. I almost wanted to go professional, but obviously didn't. The happiest part of the night was getting a picture with her, one childhood goal reached! Would have never been able to meet her in Hong Kong in those days. She's beautiful and tall.

P.S // I forgot to mention, the TATE BRITAIN CAFE HAS AMAZING FISH AND CHIPS OMG. MUST GO AGAIN!!! Don't get the pasta -_-
