stripes and solero cocktails


My two current obsessions: stripes & solero cocktails from Tokyo.

I love classically shaped garments with cute detailing. I picked this up in Topshop the other day and already have thought of a million different things to wear it with (albeit mainly to justify my own spending). I hadn’t initially thought about wearing it on a night out, but I think it works when teamed with something as dramatic as leather hotpants. Thoughts?

So today was the first day of my placement with Unique Thinking; I’m really excited for what the next couple of weeks will bring and all the new things that I’m going to learn! It’s been another gorgeous day, and after work I met Lucy for pizza in the sunshine at Avanti before rushing off to pattern cutting. I need to share some photos soon of my progress but right now I’ve finished my waist shaping and gone over the block with a tracing wheel so now all that’s left to do is cut out the actual pattern so I can make the toile! All in all, it’s been a lush day but now all I can think about is crawling into bed with a good book…

    I'm glad to hear that your placement is going well :). Stripey clothes are my favourite, I have so many striped dresses it's crazy, and now I'm really wanting a black and white striped skirt!

    The cocktail looks yummy & I love your top 🙂 xx

    Solero cocktails sound amazing! I used to live opposite Tokyo but haven't been for a while, even though I'm only about five minutes away now!
