Khaki Killer






Top &Jacket - Topshop | Shirt - vintage | Trousers - thrift | Shoes - Koi Couture | Bindi - Sai Fashions

Summer is finally here! I broke up from school on Wednesday, and that means I have more time to spend on my blog and fashion line. I also have a couple of zines lined up to publish on my blog as well as my online store to open! I'm also looking forward to moving back to Dubai for a while: Dubai is my favourite country!

Since we broke up for the holidays, I've been in a very laid-back mood; so this outfit felt mandatory to post. I love the lazy "I just threw this on" vibe to outfits, it makes everything seem so much more effortless and naturally chic. Khaki green colours are my personal favourite colours for this summer, something which I feel is made perfectly evident from the images above! Using studs is the perfect way to toughen up any old outfit, and if you're not a fan of embellishing garments with studs, then slipping on a pair of studded loafers can be the perfect alternative. I will be selling these spiked loafers on my online store, (opening very soon now!) so if you were planning on where to find a pair for yourself, you don't have to look much further.

Culture has always played a big role in my life, and looking back at my childhood, I feel immensely lucky to belong to a heritage so rich in culture and art. Culture is most definitely a fascinating aesthetic, but it's even better if you feel a sense of belonging to that culture. I have always had an obsession with bindis; they look so dainty and unique as well adding that finishing touch to any outfit. For those who are curious, the bindi represents the "third eye", also known as the pineal gland, of your brain and is commonly used by people from South Asia.

Love from,

Miss Iffa

  41. First: Thank you for your kind comments! You're a really lovely person. How did you get the German translation? It's really good - and very sweet of you. :)

    That khaki jacket is so cool! I agree with you: It is a great colour- Very natural, and it fits to almost anything. ;) I love your outfit, looks very casual and at the same time totally en vogue. You're a talented designer/trendsetter. ;)
    You look gorgeous and are very beautiful!

    I hope you enjoy your holidays. :)
    It's good to see that you're so aware of your culture and the richness it has to offer. :) Eastern culture is very interesting, not only when it comes to art, but also when you take a look at its science past. (For a long time, their doctors and scientists were more advanced than their Western colleagues).
    Maybe you could tell your curious readers more about your heritage/where your cultural style is rooted?
    I'm very interested. :)

    Love
    Ninon
