Sepal, petal, ovule.

Happy August! August always feels like a weirdly anxiety-inducing time for me - it's far enough into summer for me to feel guilty about all the things I should have done/should be doing (like reading for my dissertation) and close enough to September for me to be worrying about it. But also it's summer!! So I should be enjoying myself!! My dark circles are being sponsored by Netflix and blank Microsoft Word documents.
I really wanted to show you my new favourite top! I've been wearing this thing so much since I bought it I can barely remember what I did without it. This is my first purchase from Sheinside and I'm actually pretty impressed! It's really cute and such a blatant rip off of Christopher Kane's SS14 collection that it really makes me think that the fashion industry needs to tighten up their copyright laws (not that I'm complaining, as if I could ever afford the real thing).

See? Isn't the picture on this top such a good double for the Kane one? Minus the sequins, obviously. I loved this collection so much when it came out - all de-constructed petals and anatomical diagrams you could cheat on a biology exam with (as astutely pointed out by one of my friends). I wrote something about it here for Liberty Belle ages ago and I'm so pleased I finally have something that looks a little bit like it in my wardrobe. I think it looks perfect with these vintage shorts, I hardly ever wear these to be honest but when I saw the top I knew the yellows would work so well together.
Also, I have really been enjoying trying out new things with my outfit posts recently. I always felt a bit out of place taking pictures in my bedroom, it never looked quite right somehow. This painting outside my room felt right though, and I really want to start taking pictures in more fitting locations! (Hence the outside photos from my last post).

Sigh. Completely besotted with this skirt and its 3D petals.
Top - Sheinside, shorts - gift/vintage, headband - gift.
I bought this beautiful set after a tip off from the lovely Kailey - the sequinned Oasap version was sold out & she sent me the link to this! It's so cute but unfortunately the skirt is just a bit too big for me, so I'm selling it on ebay & depop (@charlottekook) if you fancy having a bit of knock off Christopher Kane in your life (:

  2. love this look- I thought it might have been real Christopher Kane!
    The fashion industry can't control knock offs, because long ago the courts ruled that clothes are things we cover our bodies with and are not art and shouldn't be subjected or treated as such. There's a really good TED talk about this, I highly recommend you watch it
