a little colour

T-shirt - Zara, Jeans - H&m,  Boots - Next, Necklaces - Vintage, Vivienne Westwood 

I often get asked via my instagram why I don't do more outfit photos, because the reason is rather evident I can't help but look like a bit of a tit when the camera is pointed at me. My style recently has become heavily influenced by my love for Pattie smith, staple items and charity shop finds.

Don't you just love it when your friends have crazy props available at work,  when ever I am in the Brick Lane area I love to swing by Tatty Devine, such a colourful shop and the fact one of my favorite people works there is a bonus! 

Outfit wise today's look consisted of everything black and the worlds longest leather boots, mainly for comfort. I love wearing clothes now that make me feel comfortable, never one to dress to make someone else happy, I never leave the house without my trust leather jacket from Zara and hello lovely little lapel pins the gin pin is from the lovely ladies at Tatty Devine, the cat face is from Rosie Wanders and a fun little badge from the new punk exhibition at The British Library.

Even though my outfit doesn't scream rainbow I love the fact that East London is always a wash with colour, new graffiti, colorful building and energy, so I don't often feel a need to be flamboyant.
