Seeing Red

Guys. Guys. Can we talk for a second. Like seriously! 20 & slaying boo, this look is probably one of my favorites to date and I'm super excited to share the details with you. My birthday in Paris was amazing, if you didn't catch my insta story there are some cute snaps on my instagram and more outfit details but for now this look...

Everyone whose anyone knows wide leg is in right now and thanks to the brand Slnghr the "paper bag trouser" has taken over social media and I am here for it. Slnghr  for those of you don't know is an online brand created by Joshua (@jwshua) and his girlfriend Anne Maria (@xammasi) and their minimalist pieces give high fashion vibes at a decent price. I myself have been following the brand for a while and had been trying to get my hands on these babies for agesss. But when they finally came my gawd. Firstly shout out to Joshua for the extra packaging the trousers came in LOL, I knew from the huge box I was getting good quality.

As for the fit...the pictures speak for themselves, the vivid red is to die on my complexion and for all the tall honeys like me, yes they go all the way down (without heels the actually drag on the floor). I'm between sizes so opted for the smaller size 6 as opposed to 8 which fits perfectly.

As for the top, you guys know I'm not about to go broke to look good- well at least not on this occasion. So I headed to my trusty aliexpress site and got this bomb "Thrasher" Tee for £7.14. YES not even £10. The quality of this was amazing, soft material and I've washed it numerous times and the logo is still vivid and in tack. Together with the red trousers and simplistic heels I created a look that can easily be transitioned from day to night. Oh and thanks to my good friend Reg for the pictures.

Summer Wishlist - DKO X ZAFUL

So with summer basically here and my bank account saying very little after completing my second year of university, I decided I would put together a little wishlist in collaboration with Zaful who kindly reached out to me.  I think by now everyone and their mum has heard of or watched a Zaful haul/review on youtube, mainly focusing on swimwear but me being my ever divergent self had to bring you guys something different...

I decided to put together two looks that I would most likely wear on holiday, smart casual vibes that can easily be dressed up or down for the occasion. As my 20th birthday is fast approaching and I'll be spending it in Paris; of course I had to throw in a few luxury items that I'm lusting over right now and hope to get whilst out there.

As you guys will know from my last post, I'm all ruffles at the moment and had to incorporate that into my looks. Look one, is very summer-esque  and the lace up detail adds a little something different to your standard denim shorts. As I'm hoping to get the Gucci marmont matelasse I decided to colour coordinate my bag, shoes and shades and add a simple chain to bring attention back to my collar bone which is one of my favorite features.

Whilst look 2 is more chilled with trainers instead of heels and a simple white crop shirt and lace up skirt. I can already picture myself outside the Eiffel tower doing what tourists do in this fit or maybe a see through white dress or black bodycon. There are an unlimited amounts of options on Zaful. I have seen this skirt on a number of websites and always said I wanted to get it so why not now? I added a simple choker and of course a statement Gucci Dionysus to add a little edge.

Oh and can you guess Gucci is one of my favourite luxury brands?
