Humbug Stripes




Top - River Island | Blazer - New Look | Skirt - Topshop | Bag - H&M | Cuff - gifted | Ring - markets | Watch - Toy


Hello lovely readers!

I've had a lovely, albeit, lazy weekend. It's the first weekend after exams and I'm savouring every minute of it! I have ditched my old BlackBerry Torch, and instead bought an iPhone 4s; you know I've never been a keen fan of BlackBerry from this video, so it was almost a relief getting rid of it! Instead I have shiny new iPhone, complete with a Marc by Marc Jacobs case and the lot! I also have Instagram, so feel free to give me a follow; username: missiffa.

You all know that I am just a bit obsessed with maxi skirts, I've already mentioned how I love their versatility and, of course, floatiness! I wouldn't really call my style the epitome of grunge, but I enjoy picking up a few inspirational pieces from the aesthetic from time to time. Like the maxi skirt, if grunge was your kind of style I'm sure that this skirt would be a staple for you. The spring/summer catwalks were awash with colour and much of it came in big bold stripes. I was particularly inspired by Boohoo.com's coverage of humbug stripes . At Prada the stripes were proud and wide in orange green and pink, while over at Sonia Rykiel traditional summer shades of pastels eased along the catwalks. Personally, I love the idea of getting my inspiration from a classic hard-boiled sweet.

The purple tie-dye picture admittedly took a very long time to construct! I've only very recently started using Photoshop to edit pictures, and I intend to use the program to edit my photos in this way. What are your opinions? I've also provided another YouTube video for you all to view at your leisure, I have to say, I'm becoming slightly addicted  to accompanying my outfit posts with a YouTube video!

Love from,

Miss Iffa
xoxo

  37. Hi Iffa!

    Thanks for your comment on my blog! You have a new follower here too. :)
    I wish I could ditch my old Blackberry and get an iPhone 4S too. I'm just waiting till I graduate (in a few weeks) so that my dad can get me one :P
    I use Photoshop too. It's really tough in the beginning but I'm slowly getting used to the functions and I love it now.

    Hoping to get to know more about Koi Couture from you and your blog!

    Cheers.

  54. Hey sweetie, thank you so much for your coment on my blog. It was lovely to have your visit.
    I really liked the blazer that you're wearing with the long skit. Awsome to know that H&M has this bag available, unfortunatly we don't have H&M in Brazil yet.

    If your shoes are from H&M then I think we have the same ones, lovely outfit xo

  57. Oh man, your blazer is worthy of every ounce of jealousy. The burnt orange color stands really distinct from the striped top, making the print mixing so much more interesting. Personally, I'm not a big fan of maxi skirts on myself - love how they look on others, but it's just not something I've found the perfect way of wearing yet. Of course, you pull it off completely and this entire look is gorgeous.
