Wearing: Romance was Born bomber jacket, Elliatt dress, Rusty sunglasses, Ecote ankle boots & Vanessa Mooney jewellery.

Typical me. Clashing prints to their limits. I guess that’s what generally eventuates when you have a wardrobe full of multi-coloured pieces and no basics to work them back with. Sometimes I certainly do long for a grey singlet, some black peg leg pants and a camel coloured coat to tame it all down. But the thing is, if I see a singlet in a yellow and orange hexagon print, I’m going to go for that over any shade of grey, any day. If the same pair of pants come in both red and black, there’s no doubt I’m going to go with the former option. I’m serious, I don’t own black pants – the only black bottoms I have are the ones I wear to the gym. Oh, and a pair of jeans. I guess the lack of a basics wardrobe probably comes from the fact that I haven’t really needed a white shirt or black pants for a while. The last time I recall wearing such a corporate ensemble was when I went for a part time retail position interview when I was 16. Actually, scrap that, I went in my school uniform – such a geek I was but at least I got the job! Though sometimes, I kind of miss the polished, understated and classic look that is often spotted in effortlessly dressed Parisiennes. Perhaps in the near future, now that I’ve publicly expressed my kind-of-love for basics, you might just see me in something less colourful on this blog. Or not. Only time will tell!

  • the jacket, i shrieked!!! i really want that koinobori pattern somewhere in my wardrobe but dunno if such thing available. omg so gonna get my hands on it ;-; damn i wish i was like you! i chose anything black, grey or brown everyday rather than pattern sobs. i really need to evolve my style. i recently bought flower pattern trousers to cheer up my outfit a bit. wish me luck hehe! srsly, based on your story, your closet must be so dreamy and rainbow vomit. i covet <333

    P. S. Parisiennes sobs. will never be or dressed like one. me too sobs

    • kisforkani

      I just learnt what koinobori is ! Thank you for enlightening me, I really hope to visit Japan and see this festival one day. I’ve never personally seen this print anywhere as well, which is why I was so drawn to it and you know what? I kind of crave neutrals in my wardrobe just like how you crave colour. My wardrobe is literally a rainbow vomit and sometimes when I need something sensible, I can’t find it! Yesterday I bought a camel coloured coat – making baby steps to starting a rack of basics !

      • oohh but i squint you have some solid-colored without pattern outfits in your posts. i think it’s already a good start :D and yays let’s start together! you with neutrals and me with patterns!

        P. S. oh yes please visit Japan someday! i think you’ll blend well with Harajuku girls <3

  • Keep doing what you’ve been doing so far Connie :) Not a lot of bloggers can mix clashing print on print with so much colour as nicely as you do! Never stop being the inspirational girl xoxo

    • kisforkani

      oh that’s too kind of you! thank you X

  • Helena Chen

    Who needs black and white when colour and prints are so much more fun! If only we could all pull off this trend so effortlessly :)

    • kisforkani

      haha it’s funny that. My mind works in opposites. Once I embrace prints I also suddenly love camel tones and blacks. Once i talk about how I love my neutral pieces, back I jump straight into the arms of colour colour colour!

  • This may sound weird, but the photo of your bent knees is so cool. It definitely has that psychedelia vibe to it with this shoes & Romance Was Born always have amazing statement pieces.

  • barbra baldwin

    Nice and Clean Hampstead

    • kisforkani

      thank you :-)

  • I am EXACTLY the same! Why go for the plain black option when there is a blue and green striped one?!

    I love that I am not the only one with this dilemma in my wardrobe!
