Gōngzhǔ

Kimono & Skirt: Stradivarius | Purse: TKMaxx

Accessories: H&M | Shoes: River Island

 

Hi all, hope everyone’s well and had a great weekend!

Here I am once again with a new post; more consistent from henceforth I’m planning to be. My hope is to have three posts up weekly; Monday, Wednesday and Fridays. I do hope you come by on those days to have a peek at what’s new.

Onto today’s look, I’m channelling everything I love at the moment – Spring, being my favourite season of the year, and the skirt on dress trend, which I’ve been rooting for since winter (Here). It was inevitable that I’d put together an outfit to reflect both. Coupled to these are elements of class; elegance; feminine appeal – in your words, ‘sexy’; the classic Chinese feel from the wide-sleeve kimono, which is complemented by the contemporary, vibrant mustard-yellow leather skirt.

Call me Gōngzhǔ Funmi (Princess Funmi, haha).

I hope you like this look as much as I do. What’s your favourite part of it?

 

Be Right Back,

Funmi xx
