As If!

You know how people often say when commenting on an outfit, that it's successful or looks good because it aims to look like something, whether a period style or a character, without looking "costumey". I totally get that! and it can be true for sure, but if you think about it, replicating famous movie character outfits is no problem to me if the look is wearable, right? I bought this dress because, if you hadn't already guessed by the post title, it reminded me of my idol (tbh) and style inspiration Cher Horowitz (in particular a vague mix between her mint green dress and the red dress). I would happily wear most of her outfits as casual style (perhaps aside from the yellow plaid ensemble just because it's so well known). Anyway, I can't say this outfit is an attempt at a costumey look at all, but I really love this dress so much. I had it taken up a fair bit at the hem and now it's perfect! I'm so excited I finally own more dresses (because lbr I really don't wear them often).

I've been playing Dishonored a ton the past month and I'm completely obsessed! The scenery is insanely beautiful, such as Lady Boyle's party, which is one of my favourite missions (and the official game stills do not do it justice at all). The way the female characters dress is so badass, like the maid uniform and Emily's incredible white ensemble, and it's cool how all the women seem to wear pants and never skirts or dresses.

In less than two weeks I'm heading overseas with my family, we leave on Christmas day *O* Off to LA, England and Sweden! I'm super excited to be visiting all these places again, especially as I haven't been in London since we lived there when I was 2 til 4 years old, which was also the last time I visited my family in Sweden. So now is the time for me to ask you guys... the most important question of course - shopping location recs for London and Sweden?! Or any places you think I'd like, shopping or not. I'd love to hear them all! So please share your expertise ♥

  1. When you're in London you need to check out Oxford street, which has the main chain fashion stores like Topshop, Zara, Urban Outfitters etc, Carnaby Street for independent labels like Lazy oaf and Ground Zero. Covent garden has a lot of chain stores too but it also has really good vintage shops, an Opening Ceremony, Adias Originals and lots of independent book shops. Go to KTZ in Soho; all these places are within a 10-15 minute walk of eachother. You should also go to Camden town too for their markets. Their outdoor markets are a bit poop but the indoor ones have lots of upcoming brands and cute accessories shops. While you're there you have to go to Cyber Dog which is a big cyber fashion shop which is an experience in itself. You definitely need a day in Camden because there are lots of fun places to go around there. Aaand lastly Shoreditch which is one of the most influential street fashion areas. Check out Sick, 3939, shop 172, Religion, Tatty Divine, alll the vintage stores because there are millions and there are usually a lot of free art galleries going on there~
    Nearish there is bethnal green where you should go to Primitive and Bolshie's new store that just opened~
    It's also worth checking out the Westfield Center in Shepard's bush or Stratford city. It's a huge mall and has lots of good foody places~

  5. Hi! When you're in London you should definitely check out Camden and Brick Lane, they've both got amazing vintage places, and both have a really unique but cool atmosphere to them which i think you'd love. Also if you're into high street shopping then theres the well known Oxford Street. I hope you have an amazing time, i really love your blog ^__^
