prabal gurung target
My procrastination/Fashion Week dressing fatigue didn’t prove to be an issue on Day Three of AW13 thanks to a wonderful early morning delivery from America. That wonderful Prabal Gurung x Target dress you see above? An unexpected birthday gift from my best friend Elle. The best things come in printed packages.

What I Wore:
Dress, Prabal Gurung for Target (similar here). Boots, Boohoo. Black sun hat, vintage (similar here).

Earlier this week I decided to embrace my natural curl and finger-wrap my damp hair before bed in the evening. The following morning I woke up looking like Shirley Temple. Forgoing my daily uniform of dresses (crazy curls + dresses + pale skin = every person I meet calling me a ‘doll’ or ‘Lolita’), I decided to balance it out by colour-blocking some peg trousers to my heels and throwing on some serious spikes.

What I Wore:
White ASOS premium slim peg trousers (similar here)
White heels from Christian Louboutin (similar here)
Boxy spiked denim shirt (similar here)

One ‘trick’ that is constantly recycled in my wardrobe is the nipped-in waist. I may have too many curves and too little height to rock a lot of trends, but I am fortunate to have a waist that begs for Corlette. The London-based luxury accessories brand specializes in hand made corset-style leather fashion belts and, frankly, does them better than anyone else. Because the brand was founded on the 18th century principle that a woman should always leave the house with a corset and gloves, Corlette have managed to create a full collection of pieces destined to become wardrobe staples.
