Wild Waiste Part 2

Hey! Welcome to my second post all about my recent collaboration with Waiste Vintage. If you missed Part 1, then here it is. LINK! To catch you up a little, I had a hang out at my friend Sara's house, the owner and founder of Waiste Vinage. I selected a few pieces from her 'New In' page on her website, and then styled them up with my own wardrobe to make complete looks. For one of my choices, I could not ignore this 70s cheesecloth top. To give you an advance warning, the 1970s doesn't really escape any of my chosen items. Airy, easy and super playful - the cheesecloth top is more then a sweet comeback, its a vintage staple for your summer wardrobe. They are easy to find now on the high street but seriously please why bother, when they are in abundance in any good vintage retailer. I wanted to keep the whole look very light weight, so have gone just for some Levi cut off shorts, and my tan mules. However for a little bulk, I've added my silver cuff for some nice heavyweight jewelley. I found this silver cuff when I was travelling around southern Africa, me and my friend Brogan got matching ones. Cooler then your average friendship band I'd say. Anyway, I hope Sara doesn't mind my lolling around her bed with my shoes on.

Side Splits.

Me and Gemma spent our Sunday walking around the backstreets of Shoreditch, it was a bit creepy actually. Ghost town! But all the better for taking some photos for our blogs, nothing is worse when the scaffolders are swinging from their poles winking at you, and believe me they are the worst kind for gawping. We did our usual, Breakfast Club as a meeting place, eat and chat for ages and then go off for a mooch.

I wanted to show off this dress pretty keenly actually, I've had it a while but not got round to talking about it yet. It's another great example of a maxi dress being hella sexy. Long maxi dresses, and baggy jumpsuits have been my summer style of choice this year. They show off your figure whilst you remain super comfortable. This dress does lend it's self very very nicely to the seductive side with its side splits and cut out detailing on the waist line. It works beautifully well for a wedding but also works 100% as a going out/getting wild dress too. So it is a floral, but in a moody colour palette which I love, what a mischievous little number.

Wild Waiste Part 1.

Welcome to Part 1 of my posts collaborating with Waiste Vintage. Last week I spent an afternoon chatting, drinking tea and playing dress up with none other then Waiste Vintage owner and founder Sara Thomas. Her flat was a walk-in treasure chest, full up with all the bohemian things you can only see in your dreams. I loaded up a bag of my own bits to take over. From my tan suede boots to my crocodile hunter hat. Between some serious cat lovin' with Sara's furry hunk Hershey, and herbal teas - I choose four items off her 'New In' page on waiste.co.uk and styled them up into full outfits. This little 100% silk number above, really caught my eye. It's an original 1970s tunic with button up detailing along the shoulder, and down one side. There is something very decadent in its 'midnight floral' pattern, and I felt the need to build up the outfit with lots of black leather. For now, I've hidden underneath my cut off denim shorts underneath as it's not quite long enough to be dress even with my short height, but I was really wanting some nice tight leather pants. Maybe I'll save that idea for  when the winter rolls its sorry self around.

Simple Gladiator.

I didn't jump straight to it with gladiator sandals. I wanted to wait it out until I found a pair that I really liked instead of grabbing the first ones I saw. I really feel they can be hit   or miss, some styles can be too fancy dress for my liking. I don't want to actually want to feel like a biblical village person, instead I want an update. I was after a neat and simplified pair that I could wear with a unstated outfit and just feel chill in. So I came across these from Aldo, and they were spot on. Nothing over the top, good quality, nice simple silver studs here and there and an easy zip up the back. (Kurt Geiger also offer up some gorgeously simple ones). I have a soft spot for Aldo, so was quite pleased to get my only pair of gladiators I'll probably ever own from there. With the sandals being the key piece Ive kept the rest of the outfit very very simple. Loose fit denim cut offs and a clean white baggy T-shirt. Nothing too over the top to see here however I needed a bit of romance, as always, so thrown over my suede fringed waistcoat. Bed hair, sunglasses and I'm good to go.
