When I see something beautiful, I wow; beautiful and red, I buy. Simple as that.
I recently did a bit of online shopping(well, I always do a bit of online shoppings here and there, but just for the flow of the article…). It may be because of the weather getting warmer, or not. But everything that I got from my shopping at M&S was either red, orange, pink, camel, or a mix print of all those colours. Now Marks & Spencer may not be the first place you head over for fashion, but if you care to take a look, they actually stock some rather cute, and quality, and trendy pieces. This beautiful red blouse with delicate details came together with the faux suede midi skirt in the same box. I tried them on together and decided to look no further in my wardrobe since they worked just fine with each other. Of course the red blouse could have been teamed with jeans or smarter trousers for different looks. And the skirt(being the “IT” skirt of the season)could’ve also worked with a million other tops as well. But you see, I am a person who believes in fate, and they did arrive in the same box, so…

And the reason why I was in the courtyard of V&A? Not only for the photo shoot of course not. If you make it to one exhibition this year, make sure it is the Savage Beauty at the V&A. Remember, this advice comes from someone who’s not head over heels in love with McQueen’s designs(oops! Am I allowed to say it if I still want to write about fashion?). So I still went, just to check out what all the fuss was about. And I was stunned! What I saw was far more than a display of designer clothing. The way the whole exhibition was curated and set up, took people onto a breathtaking journey of how a genius was born, and flourished, and struggled, and vanished. By the end of it, it was so much more than simply having one to agree with the aesthetics, but just to cherish the delicateness of a mind that was truly one of a kind.
