In Indigo







































Our London wandering led us to the area once known as Cripplegate. Like the name suggests, Cripplegate was once a gate on the London wall and also the area of the City of London located outside of the wall which interestingly predates the wall itself. The area was utterly devastated during WWII, today it is home to the Barbican Estate.

I am very keen on Longchamp Le Pilage bags at the moment. They are so robust, brilliantly weather resistant, colourful and practical. 

DETAILS | Bag from Longchamp, shoes from Bloch, skirt from COS, coat from Jaeger, bodysuit from Benetton and necklace from a craft market in Johannesburg.

  1. I have had my eye on a le pliage bag from Longchamp for many years but only picked one up this weekend on my way back from Paris - there was something about the nylon fabric that made the purchase hard to justify for me but now that I have the bag, I can't help but wonder why on earth I waited so long to get one! Harrod's in Terminal 5 didn't have any ruby red ones, but now that I've seen yours, I think I need another. And a beautiful dark blue skirt to go with it :)
    xox,
    Cee

  2. My longchamp is a must when travelling, they just fit everything in it. I really like your necklace, I picked up something similar in a market in Tanzania

  4. Really liking your outfit Yasumi, the shapes are great and the colour of your skirt also. Hollie has one of those bags, I didn't really see the appeal at first but she's been using it every day for about a year now so I guess it's pretty practical.

    Interesting to hear about Cripplegate, I'm not heard that name before.

    1. Ha! Hollie must know why they are good then. Seriously handy things these...and they fold away nice and tidy.

    1. Thank you Kelly. I am not usually so bold, I think I just felt a bit bold on that day. It is fun to dress up I think....not that I do it very often these days -> addicted to my pyjamas :)
