Turtlenecks have made a huge comeback this season, an almost unanimous feature on the pre-fall 2015 runways. A fan of this piece of fashion, I’ve always found a certain understated sexiness about it.
Having said that, this all black ensemble is quite a different look for me, a little too demure compared to my usual self! So to lighten things up, I’ve polished off this outfit with a couple of playful surprises: a Minnie Mouse necklace (the pendent is actually a headband with a pair of mouse ears, too cute!) and this bag from Issey Miyake’s Bao Bao collection, a gift from my aunt and uncle from Japan. I simply adore the geometric, origami like facade and the way the sharp, modern lines contrast against an otherwise classic ensemble.
