Quarantine look: 1

Since we can’t leave the house, I’ve decided to use every opportunity I can to wear a cute outfit. I know, I sound crazy. But if dressing up gives you a sense of sanity and control, then you’ll understand. I decided to make a mini series here on my blog, and document outfits I’ve worn during this time, not only to look back on but to get back to my roots. I originally made this blog to post outfit inspiration and style tips for people who needed them, and I feel like over the years I’ve strayed away from that, and created more of a lifestyle blog. I’ve been finding my love for clothes and creating looks again, so expect some new outfit posts from me during this pandemic and beyond! Outfit details below.

Zandra Rhodes Exhibition

Before visiting this exhibit, I’ll admit, I didn’t know who Zandra Rhodes was. I was looking for new fashion exhibits in London because I love to see the way different designers did/do their craft. It was so interesting to see her designs and to realise that her work has probably inspired many of the lifestyle wear that’s around today (being from the Caribbean and working at a lifestyle retailer, it’s been interesting to compare her work with the lifestyle brands we sell in-store!). Below are a few photos of pieces that I found really interesting.

This sunflower dress caught my eye first, because it’s my favorite flower, and second because so the cool materials and patchwork details that were used
I love how campy this dress is and the way it reflected light. I also don’t see many pieces with foil fabric, and I noticed that she used a lot of that
I loved the detail, materials and costume-like appearance of these pieces. As you can see she used the metallic/foil fabric again!
