Going on an Adventure

Boohoo Check Playsuit Koi Couture Shoes White Monochrome Peacocks Jacket Black
JumpFromPaper Wanderlust Backpack Limited Edition 2D Bag Caramel

I spotted Bethany’s incredible backpack disappearing down a station escalator, and as it turned out we were headed in the same direction I asked her for a quick snap whilst we waited for the train to arrive. JumpFromPaper bags are like a 2D piece of wearable pop art, and as well as looking amazing they’re completely usable too. I have one of their early designs and was surprised how much stuff I could fit in it! Bethany’s Wanderlust backpack is a really fun accessory for adventures and looked adorable with her monochrome Boohoo playsuit, Peacocks jacket and Koi Couture shoes.

Pretty in Pink

Hyper Japan Street Style Summer 2014

Reminiscent of Clueless and childhood Summers, I’m loving the current fun 90s revival on the high street at the moment. The adorable Adele captured the look perfectly at Hyper Japan with her pretty plaid dress and Primark jelly shoes.

Hyper Japan’s a fantastic event for fashion as far as both cute shopping and street style inspiration go. One of my favourite outfits I spotted last Saturday was worn by the adorable Aimee, looking pastel pretty in a fun Lazy Oaf cosmetics print t-shirt.

Miss Laura Bill

Lichfield Festival Vintage Tea Party Retro Street Style

One sunny Summer’s afternoon, the lovely Miss Laura Bill serenaded the crowd gathered at the Lichfield Festival’s Vintage Tea Party with a programme of gorgeous 1940′s numbers. Her style’s just as pretty as her voice, so of course afterwards I asked her for a photograph.

Lolli Punks

Inspired by Japanese street fashions, the last time I saw Reina she was looking elegant in classic lolita, but this time she wore a cute little dress by Nadia. She layered it over a Uniqlo top and under a Lolli Punks jacket, then accessorised with a TutuHA necklace, Primark shoes and a bag, tights and socks from Topshop.

Gorgeous Gingham

Sutton Coldfield Vintage Fair

Whilst I spotted Melanie looking glamourously retro on her way to Sutton Vintage Fair, her lovely gingham skirt is actually an excellent high street find from Primark. Her cardigan is hand knitted and the rest of her look comprises of treasures from table top and car boot sales.

Flare and Frill

Sutton Coldfield Vintage Fair

Today I ventured to a fair in search of vintage treasures and spotted Loulou looking fabulous on her way out. Her full H&M skirt looked perfect paired with a soft tulle underskirt off Ebay and accentuated with the cinched in waist of her River Island tops. She accessorised with a Ted Baker bag and Firetrap shoes.

Minori- Shironuri Artist

Minori Shironuri Make Up Artist

Minori Shironuri Make Up Artist

Minori Shironuri Make Up Artist

The curious painted face style of shironuri has a history dating back centuries. Taking the traditional Japanese make up worn by geisha and maiko and also by kabuki performers, it can now be found incorporated into modern street styles for striking effect. Whilst the white face distinguishes shironuri, it is used as a method of self expression and each individual wears it differently with wildly varying outfits. I particularly admire the style of Minori and how she takes inspiration from the beauty of nature. I had the absolute pleasure of meeting the artist and Tokyo street style icon at an event in London, and despite having seen so many photographs online I really had to marvel at the incredible detail and work in her outfits.

From her gloves to her extravagant eyelashes, Minori’s outfits are always a whimsical but perfectly cohesive vision. On the first day I met her, Minori’s outfit for her visit was inspired by the English rose and countryside; then on the second day she used a beautiful hydrangea and leaf motif. Her clothes always tell a story. A huge amount of painstaking customisation goes into them- from dyeing to burning- to create something ethereal and completely Minori’s own. Even her wigs turn into works of art, and her white face becomes a canvas for intricate and elaborate make up artistry in a most wonderful form.

You can find Minori’s website at minori.co, and below are two videos featuring her in collaboration with Tokyo Fashion.
