The best gear from Gearbest

Despite trying to inject a healthy dose of colour into my closet, my heart firmly belongs to monochrome. As this Gearbest haul clearly illustrates. It's rare where I'm really impressed with all items from an online order, but this is certainly one of those occasions. 

Throwing it back to the 90s amidst Friends reruns and pokemon, I couldn't resist dipping into the cami dress trend myself. I've seen these literally everywhere and was not shocked in how easy it was to style, over a plain T or under some distressed denim. It's also super silky and comes with a handy choker so I literally have no excuse when that spice girls reunion tour comes around.

Already owning the black version of this, I could not resist the white version too. It's perfect texture and material provides that bit more insulation than a standard T shirt and is the ideal transitional piece under a leather jacket or simple trench. Needless to say it's quickly becoming a staple.

Feeling somewhat like a pirate in this cropped stripy number, but an on trend one at that. It has delicate tie detailing which you can style however you wish; I have actually been very impressed with how easy it's been to style as this isn't something I'd usually go for. If you're a fan of stripes and crops like myself however, this piece is certain to tick all of the boxes.

The velvet underground

T shirt - Sammydress
jeans - Zara
shirt - vintage
shoes - Lightinthebox

I've been stalking a lot of instagram accounts recently (here and here) and have become rather fond of incorporating twists of colour into my (as you are very aware) minimal wardrobe. Retaining crisp lines and geometric shapes but with a brightly coloured collar or stripe. 
This t shirt fits into this particular aesthetic ideally. The splash of yellow to the velvet underground design is pop art perfection and pairs so nicely with my fave blue jeans or under a chunky leather jacket. Also, this top is literally the softest t shirt I've worn in my life. For real.

Where do you get your inspiration?

Summer Romance

Potentially two of the prettiest items I've ever been kindly gifted. In this instance, from Zaful. This dress really is one of those dresses you want to flounce around fields of sunflowers in. Sipping something cool on a picnic blanket in the amber light of evening whilst sharing laughter and endless conversations. (Does anyone else have terribly in depth aspirations where clothing is concerned?) Anyway, I own nothing else like it, and it's perfect.
The underwear I don't even think I need to elaborate on. I don't even want to wear it, just to admire it from a far it's oh so very beautiful. Pair with silk negligee, a glass of red wine and a stormy evening for ultimate effect.

Which is your favourite piece?

P.s. I was lucky enough to be featured in the wonderful Majestigal webmag: check it out here..

Want to be VIP?

top - VIPme
skirt - VIPme
neckscarf - ebay
boots - Lightinthebox
bag - Primark

I was incredibly pleased when kindly asked to pick something from VIPme. The site is an Aladdin's Cave of unique designers brought together in one place to share their styles. I love scrolling through pages of unique and quirky pieces, looking at things I wouldn't see walking down the high street as well as having the benefit of not needing to leave my house.
This outfit I would wear to an art gallery excursion. A morning of cafe hopping sampling coffee and an afternoon of vintage market shopping along a the banks of the Seine.
The top is in that mesmerising chartreuse colour that is so perfect in any season and equally easy to dress up or down. The denim skirt is something I wouldn't usually opt for but I was pleasantly surprised when I unwrapped it. The dark denim means it fits effortlessly into my wardrobe and I am incredibly happy with it's versatility.

Here are a few of my other VIPme faves:

WFST shorts

Persun T shirt

Leahm Dress

WFST jeans

I also have a handy discount code that'll get you $5 off any order over $50 if you fancy a look around;

Sammydress me up

Sammydress is an old favourite for me. Like a comfortable stroll around your best loved store, knowing where everything is and always spoilt for choice. So naturally, when I was kindly asked to pick out some summery items, I could certainly not resist a visit.

I've worn this a lot. A lot, a lot. It's material and fit lends itself to being ideal in all temperatures, perfect for the temperamental English summers. I feel like all I need is a headscarf and a red bicycle and I'm set for a sunny afternoon on the French Rivera.

I'm so not over this pink phase. Dusky, rose or marshmallow, if it's pink, I am most certainly in favour. The sugary shade adds a nice injection of colour to my cave like closet, whilst retaining versatility to go with just about everything I own. I am most definitely thinking pink.

 Just when I thought I could not possibly need another white printed t shirt, I happened to come across this one and could not resist. Simple, monochrome and it's got a bee on it for goodness sakes, literally (especially if you're partial to a glass of pimms) the epitome of British summer.

Zafully Ready for Summer

shirt - Zaful
jeans - Zara
boots - Lightinthebox

I am a great lover of  blue and white shirts. Whether it be Ralph Lauren or Primark, I do not think you can have too many when it comes to this preppy pinstriped staple. So when I spotted one embellished with floral embroidery on Zaful, I'm pretty sure it was love at first sight. Embroidery has notably cropped up everywhere this summer and when paired with one of my favourite warm weather classics was certainly a match made in heaven.

Would you wear this shirt?

This Party Sucks

You're Dead To Me T-Shirt

The best thing about Killer Condo's clothing is the feeling I get wearing it. I can be in a mediocre mood, the sky a nondescript shade of grey with a hundred things hanging over my head. Yet putting on one of these t shirts and it's all change. Suddenly I feel invincible; the trip to Aldi to buy that kind of bread I like does not seem as daunting. I don't have to speak to anyone because the T does all the work for me (works best if I use the self-checkout machine.) I'm all for a slogan T-Shirt, but their selection is something else.

Which one would you wear?
