A la garçon-ish

Hello everyone,



First of all I want to give a warm welcome to the new followers! I am so happy and really flattered with your lovely comments. Thank you all so much!



Today's outfit was about playing with a slightly masculine look, I love being girly but some days I love showing my masculine side too. LOL.



Anyways, I just love my flat caps and this one is a favourite of mine. I bought it at Topshop many years ago and it was my first. Ohhhh, it's just so cute with pale pink polka dots on... It completely made me fall in love with the whole Mary Poppins chimney sweeper look.

I wanted to keep it looking a bit girly too, so I am wearing a mesh vest which is quite sheer, it's actually underwear from Valisere back home in Brazil (one of the best in the world in my opinion) but it doesn't matter too much because my bra looks like a bikini.



Teamed up with some little heels.

Keeping it simple today, that was the idea.

Happy find at Stella McCartney

Hiya,



So here is a picture of my new dress, the one I have bought at the Stella McCartney sale... with a lot of rummaging I came across this one and it was totally love at first sigh!

A simple cute shirt dress, perfect for day wear, caught my eye because it has a quite Westwood-ish cut.

Fabulous!

Pretty Portobello meets Style Bubble

Hello guys,

I have been a fan of Susie's blog for a long time. She is a real inspiration for bloggers everywhere....

Last week on my way to the Stella McCartney sale, I spotted Susie walking down the road a few metres away from me. I could not help myself, I had to stop her to say hello...

Turns out we were both going to the sale, so we had a little time to chat about sample sales and fashion things. Cool.

(Susie, it was lovely to meet you)

The sale was OK, by the time we got there, an hour after opening, a lot of the stock had already gone.
Still, with some rummaging I managed to find a very cute day dress. I'll post a picture of it very soon.

See ya!

Mutate Britain ( Street Art ) + Brag Boutique !



westwood t shirt



Hi guys!



Mutate Britain it’s one of London’s biggest underground art events ever!



Yesterday, I finally managed to attend the current exhibition which is called 'One foot in the Grove' and luckily for me it's just up the road, right here on Portobello :)



I highly recommend it! If your are in London, (into street art, graffiti and design in general) you must to come down to check it out. It's totally worth it!



The entrance is only £1 before 6PM and £3 after, open until 9PM. They also have a quirky bar and lounge area... I intend to go back in the evening as they have some different shows and wall projections which I missed on my day visit.



Here the usual peep:

A great day became even greater... when I came across Brag Boutique's clothing stall.



It was love at first sight! 'Brag Boutique', a London based clothing company proudly offering the very best in limited edition, ethically hand printed artwork & clothes. Nice!



I love all the hoodies, T shirts and scarves....
