Tower bridge, London

Black shearling jacket – Muubaa. Cashmere sweater – The White Company. Dress – ASOS. Black Jeans - James Jeans. Boots – Sergio Rossi via the Outnet. Bag – Alexander Wang Kirsten tote via the Outnet. Thank you Kit for helping with the shots!

I’m trying this new thing where I don’t make my outfit posts HappyMeal posts, because lately I’ve been sneaking in half-arsed outfit shots with some great eating experiences that really deserve full features of their own (eg 1 | 2 | 3 ). So when I say HappyMeal posts – introducing the cool eatery is the ‘toy’ bit, while my sartorial choices that accompany the post like an afterthought, the undersized, under-satisfactory kid meal. If you were in the kind of family where HappyMeal is currency of good behaviour, you’ll be familiar with the fact that once you get the toy out, you no longer care what goes in your mouth – a fry, a sawdust McNugget. As long as the toy keeps you entertained, your parents shovel the food in no problem. My point is, I’m now in a habit where I don’t post anything until I eat out somewhere cool, which is NEVER because I also happen to work full time and really would prefer eating pillow stuffing at home (preferably while sleeping). So here goes, back to basics, ‘punching-in’ my fashion blogger time-card, so to speak. Lots of me, from different angles, wearing stuff that’s probably not even fashionable to begin with. Oh but I love that shearling jacket from Muubaa.

  9. Have no fear, between the jacket and the bag and the bridge, it’s good to go.

    What do you season you pillow stuffing with? :P

  10. You know the sauce that come when you order Peking duck… that one.

  11. I’d be happy to leap off the Tower Bridge and quickly strike a pose, here you go, a unique outfit shot.

    It’s hard to find a right time and location to shoot an outfit, and it’s bothersome if you’re super busy with work and later give up hope.

  12. @Shini, Plum fixes everything. Good call.

  13. Oh my gosh I know, and we didn’t even end up taking your pictures (I have loads to send over though, would you like me to?) which is super sad.
    Maybe we need to find a time every week and do 7 at one go.

  14. @Shini,
    Neh, don’t think it will go up on my blog though, wrong mood hehehe.
    Next time bring a suitcase, shoot in north, east, south and west London….waahla, 2.5 months worth of outfit posts, done :P

  15. YES and hair & makeup in another suitcase, then no more trekking around town in the yucky rain while the sun is most clearly gone…. KIT LET’S DO THIS I’M SICK OF SPONTANEITY!

  16. I really really love your bag!

  17. Love your bag and your boots!

    xx.

  18. LOL! Great analogy. The only reason why my daughter or her friends beg for McDonalds is to get the Happy Meal toys. The food is generally thrown aside while they plunder the toys. I love the photo of the Tower Bridge. It looks so mysterious on a foggy day.

    I’ve heard so much about Muuba. Love the faux fur bits on the jacket.

  19. I love those boots and that bag! The dress looks great against all that black!

  20. Love the scarf in your outfit! Also love London so much..!

  21. I love this bag! Why am I never on the Outnet when they have these amazing sales? Next time…

  22. I never know what to do with those posts. Like I hate categorizing them under Outfits because they’re, like you said, really half-assed but they don’t fit anywhere else. Lol. Non-problem problems.

    But I think your blog is distinctly known for have awesome photography all around so basically anything you photograph is gold, whether it’s a half eaten burger or great topshop heels :P

  23. wow I love that 2nd shot of Tower Bridge!!! one of the best I’ve seen of it :D

  35. That picture of the tower bridge is amazing! sound like a fairy tale ^_^
    I’d love to come back to London…such a nice city.

  36. I used to be suggested this website by means of my cousin. I’m not sure whether or not this post is written by way of him as nobody else understand such special about my problem. You are wonderful! Thank you!

  37. […] What if I took any of the tote bags I’ve stacked in the dark depths of my wardrobe’s ‘forgotten’ aisle and attached some skinny belts to it? I could even try some multicolored, multitextured ones. Wouldn’t it be fun? {this is Alexander Wang The Kirsten Tote, images via 1, 2} […]

  38. When some one searches for his essential thing, therefore he/she wants to be available that in detail, therefore that thing
    is maintained over here.

  39. I really like what you guys are up too. This sort of clever work and exposure!
    Keep up the wonderful works guys I’ve added you guys to blogroll.

  40. I’m not that much of a internet reader to be honest but your blogs really nice,
    keep it up! I’ll go ahead and bookmark your website to come back later.

    Many thanks. twitter
