Mississippi Masala is probably not the first film dealing with India’s diaspora (in the movie’s case a double diaspora) but one amongst a clutch of much discussed diaspora films of the 1990s (X, X). It is also well documented on tumblr so the images are a bit superfluous. Except to say that Mina’s wardrobe is very much 1980s influenced “ethnic chic”, kind of a Gurjari in Greenwood aesthetic. With a dash of Janpath market (pic 3). It combines this with 1990s American fashions (that denim…) and a nod to Africa in some of the prints Mina’s parents wear as well as the African wax print furnishings in Mina’s room (pic 5).

COAT: Alice’s Pig SHOES: T.U.K  TIGHTS: Aliexpress PURSE: Aliexpress BERET: F21

It’s getting so cold here it’s already starting to snow! I won’t be surprised if this is my last outdoor photoshoot for some time. But I’m glad it was in this Debbie’s Dallas coat in red! This is definitely one of the greatest things in my closet…I fell in love. Alice’s Pig is a London based brand that has such a quirky retro style I haven’t really discovered outside of subcultures of J-Fashion. Red and blue are two of my favorite colors, and this coat is so well made it’s amazing. It’s extremely soft, heavy weight, durable. I went one down from my usual size for a better fit. It’s truly timeless.

My red beret is back in New York still, so I thought I’d be rebellious and match the coat with burgundy. What’s better then these TRUE kitten heels by T.U.K ?! THEY’RE VELVET!!! So adorable! I’ve been a T.U.K fan for some time and to finally own a pair my life is complete. Oh, and they’re vegan! Plaid wool blend coat and velvet shoes, oh I’m truly embracing autumn right now you guys.

DRESS: Bea & Dot  SHOES: Bait Footwear

Sorry these pictures are kind of weird, hardly got any good shots, original files got deleted, and the weather was just too damn hot so I gave up!  I’ll properly coord this again eventually, but I needed to make some sort of an update. It was at the end of another photoshoot I did…I’m supposed to make an appearance in a very cool magazine! Can’t post the pictures yet though. 

By the way, this was one of those purchases were I wanted to dress more than I cared how it fit. Once again, defeated by the bust. If you’re pear-shaped you’ll love this but ugh, the dress makes no sense in the chest area. So tight (as you can see). I was trying to achieve kitsch house-wife status but it looks like my boobs need the jaws of life.  But the print was too adorable to pass up.

COAT: Forever21 TOP: Forever21 SKIRT: Target TIGHTS: H&M SHOES: Payless

Sorry I haven’t been posting. I’ve been working a lot, trying to save up money 😓. There hasn’t been time to do pictures…or really anything. Not to mention, my parents still haven’t sent me my old clothes yet so I’m pretty limited on what I can make do with. I rather just wait to post good things than to post a bunch of mediocre things (but I suppose there will be a lot of casual outfits until my clothes come). I’ve sketched up lots of coords! This outfit isn’t the kind of thing I’d preferably post on here but it’s still pretty cute! It was really windy and chilly out actually. 

Here’s welcoming September with open arms!

SHOES: ASOS BAG: Unique Vintage DRESS: Ducks In A Row TIGHTS: Target

Wow, holy crap I’ve missed posting. So despite this bag and these shoes are not the mostly comfortable/practical in the world…I’m a sucker for unique accessories. I was never into faux fur until this past year, so fluffy shoes and coats are becoming addicting! This dress runs hella small, so I sized up and my goodness it was worth the purchase!!! It’s built amazingly well, thick but not too thick, and is super dumper comfortable!! The velvet is soft and it’s definitely in my top 5 favorite dresses. I really really adore plaid, so I new i needed this to welcome in autumn. Halloween is coming up so I’ll be rewatching Over The Garden Wall (and tons of horror!!). I don’t know if I’ll be anything this year, but bet if I do there will be a photoset!!
