Sweater – Vintage, Shirt – Zara, Dress – Vagabond Van, Shoes – Chloe Sevigny x Opening Ceremony, Socks – Happy Socks (via Tobi), Bag – JHYoo, Necklace – Jennifer Loiselle, Watch – ASOS

Ever since I started going steady with my bicycle (relationship status: level 2, bickering has commenced, usually on the topic of why I manage to drive her into every pothole available on the street) (Purposefully darling, I like it rough) my flats: heels ratio produces a pacman piechart. These past few weeks I’ve been hearing new lines from people: 1) were you always this short? and 2) COME OON POKEMON. The latter mostly by my significant other, blowing past me on his own megafast singlespeed ride and yelling YOU ARE SUCH A SLOWPOKE. Hence the new nickname. Anyway, these Opening Ceremony boots put me back in that familiar airspace, +5inch AMSL, one where you can sniff the nearest bakery before the rest of the herd can. They also seem to put me on the ring of fire, with every step wobbling like 8.2 on the richter scale. WHAT IS UP WITH THESE GEOGRAPHY ANALOGIES. (Also notice how I go a little schizo with the brackets)

Thank you Kit for the outfit snaps!

  12. That is the best representation for heels and flats ever. I’m a big lover of heels but my body can’t handle wearing them all day, every day.

    Thanks @Thea Natalie, I’m actually not a drinker so I wouldn’t know so well! I do hear that The Haggerston on Kingsland road is also a nice place!

    @Shini, I actually think ninety-eight is a visual experience more so than drinking, you should definitely go and take a look for a mocktail one day :)

    Asiana magazine commissioned the space for an editorial last year. It’s run by a chicken called Wendy (I’m not even joking!)

  22. Bohaa, you need the bicycle with these shoes… They look amazing, but for walking?? That’s why I miss cycling so much… takes you from A to B in the highest heels without any pain. Keep the relationship going! X

  23. I’ve always been a ridiculously huge fan of that sheep you are wearing.
    If I ever saw you in public I would just run up and snuggle in it.

  25. I just love your style and your writing and you blog. And not in a ‘im 16-and-i-commented-on-your-blog-so-you-have-to-come-check-out-mine’ type way. But like, I always get happy when I visit and I always go ‘oooww, I wish I thought of wearing that in such and such a way’. Thank you for totally rocking and making my life a tad more happy and beautiful.

  30. Gorgeous! This outfit is so good Shini. I LOVE that little lamb jumper, the necklace and those shoes! I love the thought of you cycling in your beautiful outfits… in hugely high heels…. actually, no I don’t. It makes me feel terrified. Are you wearing a helmet? If not, I’m buying you one. With a slogan printed on the back… ‘Fashion before practicality’, perhaps? xx

  31. I am working on my own pacman pie chart of late but the red daemon (this is my bike’s name) just can’t be swayed into thinking that smooth pedals + rain + 4 inches = safety. Oh well…

    zomg don’t, absolute suicide! I think people are misreading my pacman piechart, 80% is flats! Heels and smooth pedals and potholes and london cabs and rain REALLY doesn’t make good soup.

  38. hahaha love the pie chart – I want to bump up the blue section a tad more too so i’ve been buying lots of safe height heels – some kittenish ones like your silver ones particularly. They seem a good compromise :) my goodness, I was wondering if you were going to mention the wobble factor of those heels! I tried on the shoe version and my god I was all over the place – hopefully the bootie (shake shake!) ones are sliightly more sturdy.

    Big love to that necklace too! xxxx
