Silk kimono from Vietnam, Topshop lace crop, Editor's Market skirt, Nike sandals
Perhaps it was the excitement of being at THE Topshop store on Oxford St, London, that so convinced me that my wardrobe simply needed a simple black lace crop. Tailors and silk stores were so commonplace throughout Vietnam I was bound to finally give in to the gorgeous prints staring back at me from behind the display windows - the fact that it was such a family business and tradition just seemed to make it all the more attractive as a worthy souvenir. And while crochet on denim is potentially one of the most convenient DIYs around, I got honest with myself and knew that I would probably never get around to making one myself and so picked up this sweet piece from the lovely Editor's Market in Singapore. As for the sandals (a sweet surprise at the Nike outlet in Hong Kong) - lace-ups, zip-ups, extreme comfort and with the support of a sport shoe - it literally put such a spring in my step I'm quite convinced I could actually go for a run around the block if I wanted to. No kidding.
My travels within the last 8 months, all in 4 pieces. Not too shabby for an unintentional globetrotting flashback. Time flies, and I have no idea how we're already a few days into March now, but there are a few little changes to be revealed soon and lots more exciting projects in the works headed your way! x
