I always get the most compliments when I wear a vintage style, and as the blog has developed over the years I really do think I look my best when I combine elements of retro styling with more modern items. Here’s an example, this gorgeous shirt from ISON in classic Gingham works ridiculously well with these leather shorts and their sneaky skull detail. The shorts and the collar that I’m sporting are both from this month’s BISHBOX. I opened my box whilst live streaming yesterday, something I’ve finally gotten around to doing after a long time wanting to try it. It was a lot of fun but requires practice and I need to build an audience, but it’s the kind of activity that will get me out of my Skybox!
Unfortunately, I came to the realisation as I opened my BISHBOX that it just wasn’t great. Out of fifteen items, I will probably use just one regularly (The YUMMY collar that I’m sporting in this image) and except for some RAZOR jeans and these shorts, well, to be honest, I was disappointed. The quality of the designers in the box just isn’t consistent, in fact, the texture work on some of the items is incredibly poor. I’m not a design snob, and I realise that the box is only 1500L, but I’ve found this month (and last months) editions incredibly disappointing. At this point, I don’t know if I’ll be purchasing the next one, and if I do it will purely be because YUMMY is in it because I’m a hardcore YUMMY addict! Anyway, watch this space….
But onto the look. I really hope you like it, I think it’s a corker. The base skin is a new one from AMARA BEAUTY, which I’ll be blogging shortly…
