The irregular geography of the warehouse conversion that is our flat lends a lifestyle not unlike a 11-year-old’s birthday party held in one of those kiddy indoor-playgrounds with rubber obstacles and plastic-ball pools that generally smell of feet and pee. OK, the latter probably not so much – on most days, at least – unless I once again decide to be clever with the pantry arrangement and place a melon on the top shelf and then 5 weeks later find out it’s leaked pee-like substance throughout the entire shelving unit. Rotten melon reeks of sweaty feet, why naturally! Anyhoo, from the mezzanine level I have a sweeping view of the entire flat, so by default anything that needs to be taken down to the lounge, or the general direction of the exit, is simply thrown down over the rails. With an accompanying ‘weeeeeeeeee’ noise at that. Said items either land on the bicycles or squarely on the couch, which is in fact where a haphazard pile of junk now lives – aka my new closet. Consisting of this Uniqlo Men’s pink cotton shirt, a few crumpled ‘silk’ tops, two pairs of jeans, a jersey dress, four jackets for the daily season-change and of course socks of unknown cleanliness sprinkled in between… these are things I’ve been pulling out for the past how many months I’ve had the day-job. If I’d known growing up was to be this messy I think I’d have followed the boy out the window when I had the chance, but then again looking at the state of the flat I’ve clearly convinced him to marry me and sign Neverland over in a prenup. From time to time I slide down the stairs’ handrail fireman-style and wail siren-noises to alert the hubby that I’m hungry.

Please do check out Uniqlooks to see what I’ve been up to and join in on the Uniqlo dress-up fun! Thank you Kit for helping with the first outfit and hubby for the rest!

  1. I love all these looks, especially the one with the white lace dress. It is beyond lovely and I like how you layered it. Also, you just explain my clothing situation exactly. I am glad to know I am not alone when it comes to having a messy wardrobe (only for temporary…I hope).

    I L-O-V-E the last outfit Shini! It is so freaking good. I didn’t t all think I had any designer to wear a little dress with a button up shirt underneath of it… now I do though. The leather trousers with the delicate little dress are amaaazing. Topped off with the OCs and the leather hat… seriously, will you have my babies?

    p.s. also ADORE you in the simple classic (dare I say, all American?) first look.

    p.s.s. the shoes in outfit two are awesome. #gimmethem

  39. Ah, the melon incident sounds familiar (I’ve done the same thing with a variety of fruit and vegetables, once tempting a gleeful line of ants to come marching into the kitchen). I like what you did with the shirt, the middle outfit with the black jacket is my favourite.

  40. I love all your looks.
