I always wanted to do a photoshoot at the Barbican. The iconic estate is an impressive example of Brutalist architecture and with its concrete surfaces an ideal backdrop for bright colours. Like this yellow Topshop dress that looks so sunny and cheerful in between all those shades of grey. When we shot the picture in front of the Barbican sign the clouds opened up and a ray of sun made the colour look even more intense. One thing is for sure this dress is a mood lifter. Everyone I passed by today smiled at me. It’s great when your outfit has such an effect on people.
The Oxygen Boutique sale is now at up to 75% off and the selection is fantastic. I always forget about Oxygen Boutique and when I’m on their website tell myself that I must check it more often. They have a gorgeous selection with plenty of unique pieces that you can’t find at other online shops.
I spotted lots of cool trainers and some very cute summer dresses and tops. You’ll find brands like Australian label Alice McCall, Alexis, Mira Mikati and Golden Goose. While I was browsing through the sale this striking jumpsuit with its asymmetric ruffled top by Alice + Olivia caught my attention. It reminds a little of the polka dot jumpsuit by W118 Walter Baker I wore in this post. And I love this super cute striped sundress from MDS Stripes. Just chuck on a pair of white trainers or sandals and you’re ready to go.
For those who wonder, Hayashi is a really cool contemporary boutique in my hometown Frankfurt but let’s get back to the Farfetch sale. It’s epic. You’ll find every brand and style you can imagine and it’s all reduced by up to 70%. You can browse by various categories and because it only just started there’s still lots to chose from.
