The Iron Maiden

Fast Fashion Trend Of The Month

If you're like me and you spend half your time on Instagram and you have the ability to sense a new trend that's popping, then you would know that there's a 'Heavy Metal Fever' spreading like a wildfire which is making everyone want to be a Rock star for the season and guys, I think I've sadly joined the club. It's all about over-sized denim jackets, distressed over-sized T-shirts with the old over the knee boots and a 'beat' face to tie everything together. (Just keeping you guys up to date with the 'Instagram Baddie' trend *winks)

I've always been an advocate in tailoring any fast fashion trend to your own personal style, it's fun to see how people make different looks their own and how it represents their individuality. As you may know my style is revolved on looking  'Smart', but 'Glamorous' adding a pinch of 'Androgyny' to feed my bossed up ego. 3 main fantastic ingredients that sums up my style and when I put looks together.

Of course, with the Iron Maiden T-shirt that I cheekily got off Ebay, with my scissors on hand, and having watched only one YouTube tutorial on how to distress T-shirts, I was ready. I decided that if I wanted to wear a t-shirt like this, the entire look had be quite smart just to balance the Heavy Metal vibe the t-shirt gives off'. Now...this is the bit where I introduce to you the coat of my dreams...*sighs. 

This A/W, the military trend has been dominating the catwalk and all the high-street stores, and it's become highly popular with menswear. Luckily, I'm so in love with menswear clothing, I am easily inspired by looks traditionally catered for them and I am always incorporating it with my style. This double-breasted, masculine fitted, straight long-lined goodness, is from Zara. I call it my Balmain Inspired coat, mainly because it's one of his signature designs, with the gold buttons, the tailored fit and how expensive it generally looks! 

As soon as I wore this coat over the T-shirt, it pushed the entire look in the route that I needed it to go to and that was that. Here it is, my take on the Band tee trend.

Milan - Photography Edition

A Summer Evening in Milan

Photography Edition

Summer evenings spent in an enchanting foreign city is the best time to be an explorer, to escape from harsh realities and to be free in a place where you can be naive and re-live your childlike imaginations that you buried away. Milan, with it's rustic architectural buildings and traditional, grand space, made me feel like I was back in the Renaissance era, with The Milan Cathedral, Duomo, at the very center of all that was pure and beautiful. (As you can tell, my head was way up in the clouds *laughs)

The best friend and I  were dressed to the nines (as you do when you're abroad), with a bottle of water in one hand and a camera on the other, we were off to be our own Columbus in the bustling and exciting city. As we walk through the city center, I keep stopping, admiring and circling round and round as my head takes everything in a slow motion effect. Instead of taking packed public roads, we were lured into dimly lit , romantic looking alleyways (basically a place where you can have have a long sensual and passionate kiss with your lover and check into the hotel real quick *winks) It was bliss. The warm and inviting summer breeze that welcomes you will surely make you want to discover so many things that your heart desires. It's times like this when you appreciate the blessing of being able to travel and to be consumed in cultures that can take you to another frame of mind entirely.   

As usual, as an enthusiastic lover of art and beauty, I knew I wanted to capture everything that fed my creative mind and with my best friend on hand to help, here are the shots we captured 
Hope you are inspired guys!
