Gold Monaé

"Pure, intense emotions. It's not about design. It's about feelings."
- Alber Elbaz

Life can get hard sometimes, people become annoying, work becomes tiring and occasionally, your love life can seem non-existent or stagnate. Having the blog enables me to open up and express my most inner thoughts and desires, my true style (without conformity) through my outfits... how I dress  is often a reflection of how I feel. Deep, I know... but very true. Getting dressed and styling others, is my version of art.

The 'picture' I last painted exposed a well know obsession of mine. I guess you've just about realised that I've got an obsession with faux fur (or did you realise many posts ago?!). Yes, it is true, the obsession is real. Give me faux fur in any colour and I'll take it and put together an unforgettable and stylish outfit; its definitely one of my favourite textures to wear. 

As much as I moan about the cold weather in London during the Autumn and Winter seasons... I just have to admit, I love the fashion of the time, particularly because I get to wear faux fur. I love layering and playing with different textures in a multitude of hues. Whilst I'm partial to wearing the odd black and white outfit, it was actually Janelle Monaé who inspired this look. I've long admired the way she limits most of her outfits to black and white. Whilst I didn't try to copy one of her outfits, it definitely inspired me enough to create another outfit post for the blog. 

So out came another faux fur piece, a gilet which I picked up from MissPap., gorgeous, isn't it? As of late I've been wearing a lot of colour, I thought I'd mix things up a little, with the absence of colour; so I decided to team the gilet with other black and white pieces. Not wanting to be predictable with a black or white bag, I opted for this chic gold bag, which I picked up from the festive period sales, from Michael Kors. I finished off the look with these cool monochrome boots from Zara and a black beret, from ASOS. Cool, chic and somewhat casual, was the look I was going for, and I think I may have just nailed it... If I can say so, myself.
