Tweedle Me!

What can I say?
I really do love my lil' tweed jacket!
Here I am AGAIN ready to go out for a stroll in Soho.

I look like I eat lemons! Like if I smiled, my face might break!
Before you ask; Yes! I am a miserable old cow. I quite like me that way too.

Sucking on a sweet! Still no smile!

I am anxiously excited about my new "baby" which is a lovely toy TLR. I shall fill you in with more details at a later date. For now, I am rife with itchy anticipation while I wait for my test film to come back from the dark room!

What I Wore:
You already know that my Jacket came from ASOS

I bought the funky shirt from a charity shop for £3!!
My shoes are from Office

Denim Shorts from Warehouse

Bag from Marc Jacobs

Like my tights?
I am actually wearing 2 pairs. The cream "base" pair is my usual 110 denier selection from Tabio and the cream lacey pair ontop was a gift from one of my dear readers! Thank You again DM!

I don't have perfect skin! No where near it infact! Hiro is just good with light! I hand on heart, never photoshop my face (unless I tell you so). Quite frankly, you can like it or lump it...this is me! Warts n' all!

SANA QUZULAN GELO ~ Cover Liquid BB #2
I received this a few weeks ago and have been using it regularly ever since. I am blown away by it and would definately repurchase especially now that I have spotted it on Adam Beauty.

It provides a sheer but buildable cover and has a nice dewy yet non greasy finish. The oil control is not fantastic but I am now in colder climes so it doesnt bother me so much. It is moisturising without being overly so and it is smooth on application. Loving the pump bottle too!

(Psssst I am wearing this in the pics above)

As all my pics are trapped in film at the moment, I can only show you what we had for lunch during this outing:

The lunchtime pit stop was at: Taro
61 Brewer Street

I had a spicy teri-chicken don. They really mean it when they say "SPICY" here! It was nice and it filled a gap. This is very "Japanese for European tastes" type of grub. I say well done Mr Taro! That is the way to make the ££££ roll in!

This place has changed A LOT. I remember when I ate here about 6 years ago...it was very different then. The staff were nicer for a start.


  1. Ah, I adore the bohemian feel of the ensemble.
    The top photo of you tickles me fancy;-)
    That spicy chicken looks toothsome - am dreaming of Jerk Chicken right about now. Adore the tights, too. White/creme tights look good on your skin, it certainly doess not on mine;-)

  2. Lighting in the first pic is awesome~ And you do have the most exquisite haughty expression ^0^

  3. @ Insideoutelle - Oh dear! I do look haughty :(

  4. That's quite a frown OC. Lovely ensemble, though I might say that didn't you get some of that sauce from the food onto your precious tights?
    Ha! Now that would've made you more miserable-looking than in the first picture.
    Have a good day...

  5. @ Old Cow - oh noo :( I meant it as a compliment -- You look serious...but with PANACHE if that makes any sense ^^ I when I try to have that look I end up just looking...childishly petulant...

  6. @ Insideout elle _ i was just joking with you! hihihi *mischievous giggle*. I like petulant child poses...they are so adorable

  7. What a beautiful camera you have around your neck!

  8. Amazing post! Lovely style...great shots!

  9. LOL... love your "I'm an old cow" thing.. you are so cute ;) LOVE the outfit too - you can wear waist high shorts *jealous*

  10. i love love love the lace stockings :D!! me want me want! i hardly have the opportunity to wear them atm but still lovely to look at!! and u are no old cow, love it when u have outfit posts:) and ur face x

  11. Loving your outfit, and the second photo makes you look mischievous, cute! :)
    Yummy food, must try Taro next time i'm around Soho.
    Oo possibly another BB cream I should try...?:P

  12. You know you're beautiful right..?? Right..?? You ARE!!

    I love that first picture!! My hubby needs to learn how to take pictures like Hiro..I always look odd when he takes my picture..lol

  13. I can't believe every picture of you turns out so pretty! It makes me jealous (*sits in corner and crosses arms*), haha ;)
    Ok, so BB Cream...if you had to pick one BB Cream, what would it be? Fun fact: I think I'm one of the last few Koreans/Asians who has never tried this wonder cream o_O
    pssst....I can't wait to hear more about this lovely new toy camera of yours!

  14. you look dashing! Love the jacket.. I can never pull of tweeds like you!

  15. You're really funny when you kept referring to yourself as "old cow". I do love that sour look on your face. Think high fashion, not sour puss *kidding* I would end up like a joke if I pulled the same stunt like you. I love that gorgeous little camera hanging down your neck and your lovely shoes. Love the brown and pink combi. Or are they brown and pink?

  16. You look gorgeous - the lemons are clearly doing you good! I can never pull off blank/haughty/uninterested expressions in photos - I just look really tired and/or angry. The outfit is gorgeous!! I really need to buy tights this year.

  17. I really, really love the first picture of you. It is like a painting. I live the light the balance, the colours the composition what you are wearing everything. It is beautiful Xxxxx

  18. miserable old cows are more interesting ;) oishii!! BOTH your tweed jacket and lunch at Taro. xx

  19. i love all the photos esp. the first one!! i love the color of the tree in the background..its soo pretty!! and the food looks soo yummy!! makes me want to have some spicy teri-chicken don!! hehe also i'm glad you like it and i'm happy to see you are wearing it XD

  20. Haha! Lady i always look like i'm sucking lemons in my piccies too! If i do any other expressions i just look like a total dork. I think haughtiness is the only way forward.
    Ps. first pic is ah-mazing, not only is Hiro a great photog, he's also got a gorgeous (if slighlty miserable) model... i'm jesting, you look incredible ;)

  21. ohh i love the idea of layering two pairs of tights, though i don't know i ever would. and i love your nonchalant expression, sort of like a very high end doll but one that walks and talks and is brilliant :)

  22. the camera really adds that oomph to your look. and layering tights? GENIUS!! you look gorgeous me lady

  23. Missy.. you bring smiles to my face!! And I love how put together you always look! Your unique awesome style is just one of the things I LOVE about you!


Thank you for taking the time to leave a note, they are the stuff that keeps us going.
