Another Huw Roman piece coming at you today! (click here incase you missed the first piece!) Envision a unique, upscaled upgrade to the everyday shirtdress, and you’ve got this gorgeous lightweight beauty! This is the Raglan Shirt Dress, made from a beautiful material called ‘oxijewel’ developed by one of Japan’s most reputable fabric makers, Toray. It’s extremely lightweight which makes it super comfortable alongside being super practical because a) loads of room to move within, and b) pockets!! It’s also got a bit of a ballooning bulge if you will (in a good way!) which gives it this voluminous elegance as you walk. Super intentional lol as the bulge falls vertically rather than out from the side in order to provide that depth effect! Absolutely in love with the sleeves on this; the bulge effect carries into the sleeves a tad, tapering down into a thickish cuff which is beaut! Hopefully you’ve had a chance to check out Haute Elan by now!

I present you Huw Roman Inc., an up-and-coming modest wear fashion company out of Tokyo aspiring to provide quality and comfort to women all over the world. The Huw Roman woman is a woman with strong moral principles, one who is honest, intellectual, sophisticated, delicate, independent, chic, charming, modern and who has a lot of faith in oneself. (Am I allowed to be slightly flattered?!) The core concept behind the brand is also based upon these characteristics, with “粋” (Iki) – representing delicacy, individuality and chicness and”薫” (Kaoru) representing the atmosphere of illusion, nuance, romanticism, and reality. I was sent this beautiful kimono sleeve jacket alongside another piece (you’ll see it soon promise!) and I kid you not, even my 98 year-old grandmother insisted on having a feel because yes, it looked that gorgeous. The magic lies in the material which features an uneven grosgrain fabric which is thin, glossy, and rich in texture. Using grosgrain allows the appearance of a more causal and relaxing look; so although the sleeves appear to be a kimono sleeve, it’s been designed in such a way that they gradually widen in shape towards the cuff. It also features a beautiful back slit kept together with a black… View Post

Mumbai was one of those secret ‘don’t tell mum until you’re back’ kind of trips, only because I’d just got back from Nepal a couple weeks prior and mum had gone through the routine ‘okay you’re back now chill out for a bit and save some money’ spiel so you get my drift yea?! India’s always been on my list but I swore to never go alone or in a group of girls what with it being blasted in the media at one point about female travellers being attacked etc etc etc. and if I went it would be to see the Taj first, but things don’t always work out they way you’d like them to do they lol one visa rejection later plus multiple counts of stressing, we were off to Mumbai for 3 days! I introduce to you Ms. Amani and Ms. Julie, two lovelies with whom I work with, and bloody 3 days in Mumbai being Julie’s mad idea lol but its them random ones that make you glad you went for it isn’t it! We nearly missed our connecting flight in Dubai (I’ve never had to run for a flight til this point, thanks guys!) but… View Post

I had other plans for this Zara dress, something along the lines of massive turban, rolled up sleeves and trainers, maybe some denim?! but then the lovely Manal (@chinutay) sent me a few scarves from her collection (@chinutayco) (which are oh so beautiful by the way!) and I got super excited to put something together as an excuse to wear one *insert shy monkeyface emoji* This is actually the first time I’ve ever been gifted or sent scarves by a brand/company, and maybe rightfully so because I’m quite particular with what goes on my head in terms of material, length etc. haha but eep, these are perfect! They’ve got the right amount of stretch and more than enough material to work with! Manal’s packaging is also super cute and personalized with a handwritten message and sprayed with her signature scent which smells divine mashallah x Haven’t experimented using them as turbans yet but uber excited to do so! I’ve got ‘Jaipur’ on me head which had me reminiscing about a recent trip to India which led to me going through photos, prompting a sit down of a potential Mumbai post coming at you real soon inshallah! xoxo P.S – THE DRESS… View Post

Mama took the cake for the number of opinions she had on this look [“what bone did you break?” “you look like a mummy” “I don’t like your shoes” “why are you wearing a bandage” etc etc etc!] but I kinda sorta loved it! I’ve been wanting to sport an overlay piece on top of a button down for a while but felt super weird and meh whenever I tried them on, not to mention uncomfortable and too layer-ish lol but woke up one morning and said meh. Just do it #nike #notsponsored . Tried an alternate turban look for this one, and totally felt uncomfortable and a tad weird at first [because of the overlay not the turban lol] but promise I embraced it! Thought I’d share and inspire even one of y’all to not give a rats bum and try something that might be outside of your comfort zone because life’s too short to not try new things isn’t it?!   Shirt: H&M Overlay: Zara Skirt: Zara Flats: Zara Earrings: H&M Bag: Chloe
