Thought I'd show you a little of my home again.
I use the mannequin to display something I'm thinking about. This is a recent find from a vintage shop. The lace reminds me a little of this Valentino (I can dream!). I pinned the front to change the shape and to give it a modern twist. I see this with strappy flats now and with beat up boots when it's colder.
My crowded dresser. Full of make up, jewelry and bits and pieces. It's messy and it's all accessible.
The watches I rotate between. The mens ID bracelet far left is one of my favorite recent pieces to wear with everything.
My hats stacked on top of a sewing table in the corner of the bedroom.
A part of my wardrobe including clothes hanging from the doors. Behind that, vintage bags hang on the corner of a large standing mirror. The rest of my bags are piled above the clothes on a shelf.
Sir Oliver loves yellow toys for some reason. This duck is his favorite because of the squeaky piece inside of it. He's my distraction to get away from my desk and go for daily walks.
I love burning scented candles (this one is my favourite) and incense. It's a several times a day ritual.
A few trinkets on top of my chest of drawers. It's a mix of vintage and new designs. The large turquoise cuff was a find from East London.
A recent beaded top found at Beacons Closet. It's by Tibi. I LOVE the faded pink and beaded neck and slit bracelet sleeves. It has huge covered buttons running up the back. Very Mad Men. I'll show it on me soon.
Some of the shoes: Left to right:
YSL Johnny mens leopard boots. Snake skin boots (DIY cut to ankle and metal tips added). Balenciaga cut out boots (seen on me here). Topshop Metal toe cap heels. All Saints white moccasins. Vintage mens loafers. Valentino studded flats.
Left to right:
Theyskens Theory metal trimmed wester booties. George Cox creepers. London Underground red winkle pickers. Chloe Susan boots (so glad they came back). Alexa Chung for Madewell leopard print boots (snagged the last pair in my size on the shelf). All Saints Damisi boots.
Thought it was time to share a few bits and bobs in my home. This is what I see every day when pottering around getting ready to go out or if I'm staying in working on projects.
