HOW I MET MY LOOK:
You may have guessed already (snap, insta-stories and Instagram) that I’m into fishnets. The 90s-inspired look has made a major comeback and everyone from the Kardashians to bloggers have been gramming the trend! They won’t keep you warm but they WILL add a tough-girl edge to any look. I love layering them under ripped jeans and having the waist band peek just above.
Today, I wanted to make them more the focal point of my look and paired them with a black leather mini skirt. In true 90s-style I wore a vintage NIRVANA tee, let’s just ignore the fact I can only name ONE of their songs (Smells Like Teen Spirit). For a little warmth (little being the operative word here – still freezing but you know.. fashun!) I wore my cropped Chanel jacket.
OOTD OR OTT?
Well, if you’re feeling confident and want to add a little SASS, it’s the way to go! The fishnets I wore are red and I think having that colour makes the look more playful and less serious than a traditional black pair.
WHERE D’YA GO?
I wore this outfit to an event at one of my favourite fragrance stores in London – Jo Malone where I picked up a very special mother’s day present: A beautiful bespoke perfume encased by gorgeous flowers all in one box! I remember the times I would sneak into my mum’s bathroom to steal some of her Dolce & Gabbana ‘Light Blue’ perfume before a night on the town with friends – Well mum, I thought it was about time I make it up to you with a perfume of your own!
Speaking of mums, I caught up with my lovely friend and talented photographer Rebecca Botin who is now a mum-to-be herself! Being the superwoman she is – carrying around not only her sony (A7S II) but also a developing human being, she snapped some pics of my lewk!
