Vintage Styling Stops Traffic

I love styling vintage clothing with modern accessories to create unique, one-of-a-kind outfits. And such outfits can cause unusual side effects, like a stranger chasing after you along the Shoreditch high street in London.

Dressed In All Black Sartorial Armour

Style – like life – can be black, white and all shades of grey. Perhaps I subconsciously wear black as a sartorial armour, a fashion shield protecting me from an unpredictable life that swirls madly around my mind.

sample-saleS

Are sample sales a waste of time? This was the question I pondered as someone who recently moved to London from Perth, Western Australia. My month of sample sale bargain hunting in London started by accident. I had just relocated to London from half way around the world had a bit of spare time on my hands whilst settling into my new London life.

sopwell-house

I long to escape to the countryside where fresh clean air, nature rhythm and the hum silence abounds. I am five months into my inner city London life. An experience that has been on my to-do dream bucket list for some time. All I can say is careful what you wish for. Whilst London has many amazing qualities and opportunities to offer, the main downside is the sheer absence of air quality.
