I have a love-hate relationship with Pinterest. I love all the fashion, DIY and home inspiration I find there, I hate how 85% of the site is basically images of skinny, white women. When I started blogging, it was with the intention of creating fashion imagery in a similar dreamy, wistful aesthetic but as a fat, brown woman instead. For today’s look, I’ve drawn inspiration from a select set of imagery that’s had my attention on Pinterest all summer. It started with the Rennes Veritecoeur dress which I kept seeing everywhere early this summer but which was hopelessly out of my reach. Around midsummer there was this serendipitous moment where I was obsessing over black and white gingham and my tailor got in a bolt of gingham fabric which was just right, so I got my perfect flowy billowy gingham dress tailored. Although I’ve been wearing it constantly the past couple of months, I wanted to wait until I had all the components of my ultimate summer vacation outfit together before photographing it for the blog.

Next up was the hat. I’d been perfectly content with my trusty Olney boater all these years, until I realised that a flat straw hat is what I really really wanted after seeing this image of Imade Ogbewi from the Kinfolk summer issue. And this obsession was further cemented by everything from the Jacquemus Spring 17 collection. But even Jacquemus sized hats are way out of my budget, retailing at £200 on average, so I kept hunting until I found my handmade flat straw hat from Portugal for less than £25! Even though I draw a lot of fashion inspiration from Pinterest, my budget for translating that inspiration isn’t much, so I have to get creative. I switched the original ribbon the hat came with for a velvet one because hat ribbons in my wardrobe have to be velvet. And yes, someday I will have an outrageously massive wide brimmed straw hat, and I’ll handle it like a baby and also wear it for gardening, but in the meantime, working with a limited budget helps me harness my ingenuity a lot more than I would have if I could just buy everything I saw off Pinterest.

The bag needs no introduction to anyone who’s been following Summer 17 fashion trends, because these bags have been everywhere! It started with the Rachel Comey Baan bag and soon enough, traditional Indonesian Ata bags were hanging from almost every single fashion blogging shoulder on the internet. I actually had to wait and save up for my rattan Ata bag - at $75 plus shipping, it’s the most expensive thing my wardrobe has seen in a while. And it’s such a beautiful, delicate, unique piece, I’m utterly besotted with it! I so wish summer wasn’t coming to an end soon so I could keep styling this bag with every single outfit, but there’s always next summer and many more summers to come. And what August holiday outfit would be complete without a pair of Birkenstocks? Ever since I got my first pair last summer, I knew I wanted more of these unbelievably comfy sandals, which are the only things I can actually walk in thanks to my fallen arches. My pink Birkenstock Arizonas are currently sold out, but Birkenstock has a similar pair in the very reasonably priced Eva range. The Mediterranean inspired setting of Rural Blues on the outskirts of Bangalore was the perfect backdrop with just a hint of Santorini (another Pinterest favourite!) to complement the look.

So that was a glimpse into what goes on behind the scenes and in my head while putting together an outfit. A lot of the time, it’s not as easily defined since Pinterest isn’t my only source for fashion inspiration - but I do try and pin bits and pieces I see on my internet journeys so I can collect most of my inspiration in one place. Where do you find your fashion inspiration from? And how do you put outfits together? Let me know in the comments!

“Friendly Neighborhood Watch” | Young Sam x Reader | FLUFF

WARNINGS: suggestive, language


DESCRIPTION: There are four days left of school before Graduation Day. It’s so goddamn obvious you and your childhood best friend Samuel Drake feel the same thing for each other… but you won’t say anything because you don’t want to risk your established friendship, and Sam doesn’t want to say anything because he can’t risk giving himself away. But when two people are a perfect match for each other, some things are bound to be revealed sooner or later.

This is technically Part 2 of “Trick of the Light”, but you don’t have to read that in order to understand this (regardless I’ll still leave the link to it below). I’m really pleased with how this one came out because it just makes my heart so happy like aw Sam :,)) It switches between Reader and Samuel so sorry if it’s kinda unclear as to whose POV you’re reading from haha *sweats intensely*

And I also wanna tag @le-ephemere @hyperionbabe @a-n-g-e-l-frommynightmare and @nataliarmnov because you guys are SO NICE and left such sweet comments on Part 1 ily please enjoy

Trick of the Light

Inspired by this song (Rather Be With You - Sinead Harnett)

The only reason why you were with Rafe Adler in the first place was because you were lonely.

Well, more like the one guy you were ever seriously in to never paid attention to you the way you wanted him to, and conveniently, Rafe Adler transferred to your shithole high school and you thought he’d be a lovely distraction.

Except that, despite getting together with Rafe, you still couldn’t get over your one true crush.

The boy next door, your childhood sweetheart, your best friend: Samuel Drake.

You remember precisely when you started crushing hard on that boy. You were in middle school, still in your semi-awkward tween stage, lost in the masses of equally confused prepubescent boys and girls trying to find their places in the social hierarchy. Sam was one of the popular kids; he and his little brother were both notorious for their mischievous methods of cutting class and their bright, cheeky grins. Always the one with extravagant (although mostly exaggerated) tales of adventures, it was expected for girls and boys to flock around Samuel Drake. His heady Bostonian voice and loopy grin managed to light up any room he walked into; Samuel Drake had this laid-back, passionate, and approachable dynamic.

And on top of that… it was almost painful how good-looking he was.

Jin: It was a lazy afternoon. Jin made lunch and he called out for you, but you didn’t reply. Wondering what you’re doing, his feet lead him to your room. When he walks into your room, he finds you jamming to some sensual and slow music that was blasting through the speaker. When the beat starts to getting slower and the mood changes to a sexy atmosphere, you start to roll your chest at a slow pace, according to the beat of the song. Then you start to really getting into the song, showing a sensual expression that gradually grew throughout the song. Jin just stood there at the door way, staring at you with awe without a sound. He has never seen this side of you. He gulps at the sight of you. But little did he know, you knew he was standing there.

“Jagi … what are you doing?”

Rap Mon: The two of you are at a huge party. The moment you walk through the door, the music blasts so loudly into your ears you felt your whole body was vibrating. People around were grooving to the music with their hands slowly waving in the air and hips moving side to side. Rap Mon decided to go look for some alcohol for the both of you. With him gone for a moment, you slowly squeeze through the crowd and reached the dance floor. The pumping pop song ended and a more R&B and seductive song came on. Your first instinct is to dance. After-all, you’re at a party. You close your eyes, letting the music flow into your head as you sway your hips and butt side to side. Once the chorus came on, you start to body roll, starting from your upper body to lower. As the song goes on, you continue to dance. You felt a hand grasps on your wrist. You open your eyes and turn to looks who is was. Rap Mon. He pulls you desperately and leads you to a dark hallway. He pushes you against the cold wall. His eyes filled with lust and hunger. Then you felt his lips crash into yours.  

“Babe… don’t tease me.”

Suga: You got a text from him. The text indicated that he finally finished the song he has been working on for months now. You told him numerous times to take a rest, but you know that little stubborn head of his is determined to make the song perfect. You glance at the text he sent you, he seems excited and he wants to you to go his studio to listen to it. When you arrive to his studio, he greets you with his gummy smile. He excitedly opens up the song and hands you a headphone. The music starts and you were amazed. Months of hard work, you have to say this was one of the best songs he produced. The jazzy and R&B vibe got you slightly excited. You bob you head up and down at the beats. Then you initial reaction hits you, you starts to body roll. The vibe the song was giving had you going crazy, you couldn’t help but body roll. After the song finish, you turn to look at Suga and was about to complement him. All you saw was a pair of lustful eyes staring at yours.

“Glad to know you like it babe.”

Jhope: You joined him in the practice room late at night. You guys tried to spend as much time as possible since he was going on tour soon. He asked you to visit him in the practice room to hang out. When you arrived, you witnessed him doing robotic movements while the EDM music is basting from the bluetooth speakers. You sat on one of the chairs, observing your talented boyfriend while he practice. Song after song, you sat there looking at him. Then, your favorite song to jam to came on. Without realization you jumped onto your feet and start dancing along with Jhope. When he saw you dancing, he started laughing at how dorky and cute you are. This was the song you’ve always danced to whenever it came on and you didn’t care what others think. The chorus came on and the two of you shared a knowing glance and body rolled in unison. 

“We would kill it if we performed this.”

Jimin: The two of you have been dating for a while, and the public knows. They have been surprisingly supportive of the relationship. He was broadcasting live on the V app, so you remained silent in the other side of the room. He was talking about how the other members are doing, talking about the tour, and reading the comments. Since he loves his fans so much, he likes to show his favorite songs at the moment so he can share it with everyone. However, the song he chose to play was sort of. .sexy. The vocals was seductive and dripping in butter. Everything about the song got your mind thinking dirty. Jimin looked at you and smiled, hinting at something. He flicked his tongue slowly across his lips. Then he winked at the camera. He as doing it to entertain his fans, but you knew it was meant for you, too. You knew he was challenging you, but you were competitive as heck. You body rolled along with the music and swayed your hips. You squatted down with your knees apart, showing him that you’re not backing down. He looked at you with lustful eyes and ended the broadcast quickly. 

“Sorry guys, I need to go because (Y/N) got in some trouble.”

Taehyung: You were snuggled next to Taehyung on the couch, browsing on Youtube. Your boyfriend, Taehyung, was scrolling through his script. He has been stressed out lately because he was filming a drama. You found a song that you really liked and you even learned the choreography, too. You looked up at Taehyung, that’s when an idea came in your head. You got up from your spot and played the song. You went to the middle of the living room and took a deep breath. Tae was confused about what you’re doing. Nonetheless, you started dancing the choreography you knew by heart. The dance had some sexy moves and spinning around. You slowly rolled your body along the flow of the music. Every once in a while, you steal a glance at him. He was staring back at you and your body. As the song goes on, your body started to heat up by the fast moves. The song ended so you finished with a big move. You catch your breath and looked at Taehyung. He was staring at you with amusement and surprise. There was not a hint of stress in his features at all. He gave you a warm smile you two cuddled there on the couch.

“You should dance more often.”

Jungkook: He was having a day off, so he decided to spend time and shop with you. He wanted some new shirts and a pair of shoes. You didn’t need anything but you wanted to accompany him since he has been very busy lately. You guys looked around the mall, glancing at every little things around you. Jungkook found a shoe place so he dragged you into the store. The store was playing some R&B music, which you bobbed you head along with. Jungkook was looking around aimlessly, trying to find a pair that would catch his attention. However, you were actually dancing behind his back while he was still searching. You were in your own little world. When you glanced back at Jungkook, he was still oblivious to what you’re doing. Safe without his knowledge, you kept dancing to the music behind him. Jungkook found a pair of boots and picked it up. He observed it and turned around, catching you body rolling. He widened his eyes and you stopped what you’re doing.

“I’m just going to try these on…”
