Channelling Chanel with leather accessories

(Photgraphy by Will Epps, check out his online portfolio here)

So, I wasn't intentionally channelling Chanel but when I saw the last photo I couldn't help but draw comparisons to their S/S 10 collection with clogs and a barn... The only differences are these shoes are from Office (again, I know...) not Chanel, they're not technically clogs and I'm not in the most fashionable barn in the World.

But anyway, back to the rest of the outfit, this wasn't really an outfit suitable to post, more just something to wear to show off the leather accessories, but it is made up of my Charity Shop cut off shorts and a black trapeze cut top from New Look Kids section, that place is a bit amazing at the moment.

The bag is one of my absolute favourite accessories, yet I never use it because I never really know what to put it with. It was from a teeny, slightly weird shop on Portobello Road in London.

Once again, these photos are taken by the lovely and very talented Will, check out his online portfolio here.

P.S. I'm flying home tomorrow, yay! I'm in Singapore at the moment, I've just had Singapore Slings in Raffles Hotel and thrown peanuts on the floor, a fitting end to they holiday I think you'll agree. I'll be back to normal blogging in a couple of days and I PROMISE to reply to all your comments and emails, it may take some time...
