Jungle of faces




Illustrated People crop top
Asos embroidered jacket
Topshop skirt
YRU sandals
old hairclip
bag from National Museum in Delhi

I really love how this outfit looks and everything somehow works together even though every piece is a different colour and pattern. I feel like a mysterious jungle club kid. Also wearing a new Illustrated People crop top, which has the coolest face print. I looooove drawing faces and I love wearing artworks so what could be better? Not much, eh. :)

Scary Monsters, Super Freaks

^ Bowie



old fake fur gilet
Asos shirt
jeans from India
Gap denim jacket
fluffy bag from Claire's Accessories

I got the cutest little fluffy monster bag the other day; it's meant to be a tablet case but it's a surprisingly spacious handbag. I can match it with my fluffy scarves in winter! In fact I still have some fur left… could make a little set of monsters! To go with the fluffy theme, I also dug out this pink gilet which I distinctly remember buying in America, when I must have been 10 or so. It doesn't even do up anymore but I still love it. :)

Easter chill





tie-waist shirt made by me
mother's cardigan
H&M skirt
River Island pale blue hat
Asos pale pink tights

A cute pastel/white themed outfit for Easter Day. And it's not just the lens effect that makes these photos so dramatic; it was also very windy! :)

Spectacular Spectacular






Asos printed bomber jacket
gifted American Apparel scrunchies
leggings from Malaysia
YRU sandals
gifted necklace
Asos sunglasses
bag from the National Museum in Delhi

I have some inherent bias against stretchy fabric, I don't know why but I have so far refused to make anything stretchy. But weirdly enough, it's all I want to wear right now. Brightly coloured and patterned jersey in "sportswear-influenced pieces", I'm sure Vogue would say. I ran into my old teacher on the street while wearing this, and she commented that only I would wear so many clashing patterns at once. Yeeeah! :)

Quality Time

^Dave Frishberg



Topshop PVC top
pants made by me out of fabric from India
K's Birkenstocks

Excuse the ghostly/angry facial expressions, and I'm really pleased with how these photos turned out. They portray my exact mood at the moment! And also a variation on the summer day pyjama look - including some PVC because it's pretty comfy and also, you know, fashun. :)

Baby's breath





Asos matching giraffe print blouse and shorts
River Island straw hat
American Apparel scrunchie

I've downloaded about 10 photo-editing apps on my phone in the past week and they've inspired me to have more fun playing around with my "real" photos (ie. not just random selfies and insta snaps). Messing around with my fisheye lens converter doesn't hurt either. So here's me tryna catch the evening sun before it disappears behind the hedge. And am I wearing house pyjamas, you might ask? Yes, yes, I basically am, and they are wonderful. :)

mother's cardigan and zebra top
Illustrated People skirt
platform Converse

As you may know (or more likely not), I love two things in a lens: a very large aperture and a very wide angle. According to my physicist father, it would be physically very difficult, if even possible, to make a lens with an aperture as big as 1.2 that was also as wide as 10mm. I say technology is always improving. Until the day my dream lens becomes a reality, I am happy to play around with my new 0.2x fisheye converter. On top of my standard lens, it produces classic circular fisheye photos, BUT on my 50mm baby at an aperture of f1.4: BEHOLD THE BEAUTY! That distortion is completely real; the only thing I photoshopped was the black and white. :)

second hand PVC (?) top
vintage dress reworked into a skirt by my mom
Cheap Monday boots
earrings from the V&A
bag from Fabindia

Yesterday was my birthday, so obviously I went all out sparkly and princess-y. These earrings seem to match everything I wear at the moment which is great because now I just put them on by default. The day also involved unusual birthday activities such as vase smashing (accidentally) and plate shopping (unexpectedly). :)

Arctic Monkeys top
River Island palazzo pants
L's denim jacket
K's backpack
earrings from the V&A museum
old scrunchie

The cherry blossom has now gone so pictures by the daffodils it is. I'm happy for spring because it's the best season to break out all my jackets! I think jackets are my favourite type of clothing, but skirts are quickly catching up… :)
