No More Rain (In This Cloud)

Hey guys!

I went to the final day of Graduate Fashion Week to attend the big Gala Show, get some more street style shots for Stylebony.com and talk to a few more designers.  The finalists collections were all amazing, they are so talented!  I decided i wanted my outfit to be completely different to yesterday's one, very casual, colourful and unstructured.

I ended up wearing my dashiki (i introduced it ages ago in a "New In" post here) Reebok's and rucksack and that was it!  I added black socks because i thought it would accentuate the white trainers and underneath the dashiki i wore a neon yellow bandeau top with calf length leggings.  Probably not the most figure accentuating outfit but i don't mind, i'm a huge fan of the oversized look!  The weather in London was A LOT better today, we even had some sun hence why the little legs are out!

I went for neon yellow nails again today, i had to redo them yesterday night though, American Apparel nail polishes chip too easily!  I think i'll give the Primark neon collection a go next!


I added a gold chain for that Fresh Prince of Bel Air/ 90's Hip Hop look, my gold Casio and little curb chain ring.



And that was it for the day! While looking up how to correctly spell Dashiki (in hindsight it's not that hard) i came across this dapper young man, he is the inspiration for my next look with this , i'm thinking a little collar action going on maybe? Oh and these men here - love the knitted hats, may try that next with it! One thing i learnt from this fashion week was not to put things in a box, try out new structures and materials etc and you may be onto a winner!  I hope you are all well!


UPDATE: I found out that I was featured on COMPANY magazines street style section on their website, so nice of them! Check it out here & on The Nyazi Report here!
