Black Or White

You know me, I love a bit of monochrome. Anything and everything. Black and white is easily my favourite combination - call me boring but I think black and white does things that other colour combinations just can't achieve! So when I was asked to review a piece by the lovely cats at Lovedrobe, I knew straight away what to choose!


Wrap/Kimono - Lovedrobe, Leggings - Newlook Inspire, Shoes - Matalan, Sunglasses - Pull&Bear, Belt - ASOS Curve. 

Oh this kimono! This kimono! It is beyond versatile. It's cut in a shirt style, complete with collar and cuffable sleeves but I decided to do something a little different with it. Rather than wearing it as an open kimono, I opted to add a belt and create a wrap top effect. It works great! The waterfall cut of the front of the jacket means there is a lot of extra material, perfect for wearing like this, crossed over, or classically left to fall of their own accord! Now my only little qualm with Lovedrobe is that their sizing is a tad small. This is a 26 and I range from a 24 to a 26 depending on the item, how it's cut and where it's from. The top of the sleeves on this are a little tight but not to a huge degree - however i would definitely recommend excersizing caution if you are a bigger size 26 when ordering from Lovedrobe! That being said, this item otherwise is fantastic! The material is a great, soft, light quality, the pattern is to die for and it is so versatile, as I mentioned before! It can be dressed up or down and can be worn in so many different ways!


I picked up these babies from Matalan, in their sale for £3! £3!!!! I was blown away and they are, without a doubt, the most comfortable shoes ever! They were also available in burgundy, silver and gold but as always, the patent black was a no brainier choice for me. 


Pull&Bear is a funny store. I've only ever seen one and it's in Cabot Circus in Bristol. It's almost a cross between Newlook and Urban Outfitters! The clothing sizes are sissy however the accessories and shoes are great. I couldn't bypass these ridiculous mirrored, clear plastic bad boys when I went in their most recently. I am so glad I bought them as I know I would have massively regretted it if I hadn't!

Lots Of Love,
