Wore this to see a few shows but mostly to explore the LFW exhibition last weekend, but I didn't quite get a chance to shoot the look at Somerset House for the blog. I'm definitely not cool enough to be stopped every other minute by a street style photographer. In fact, I wasn't stopped once whilst catching shows and having a catch-up with familiar blogging faces, but that's more than okay for little me, so here I am, recreating the look with my sister in tow.

Sheer shirt, New Look; Pinafore, Miss Selfridge Petite; Socks, Topshop; Boots, ASOS; Glitter bear ears, Crown and Glory.

I bought this pinafore dress a couple of weekends ago for Chinese New Year. In Chinese culture, or at least in our family, we wear new clothes/show/hair for the New Year to signify a fresh start and bring good luck. Last year I opted for a leather cuffed Ever Ours dress (see my post here), but this year I took inspiration from 2YOON and went for this, pairing it with my sheer shirt, ankle socks and my ASOS Aggies. Yup, I feel about five y/o, six if you push it, in this ensemble, but I love the fit of the skirt and it is too sweet to pass up. Totes wearing it with a cartoon tee next. And then my Deathly Hallows shirt.

Anyway, this week so far has mostly consisted of freezing my unspeakables off on cold beyond cold train platforms, new brand launches at work, listening to NU'EST and SHINee at every opportunity and pushing plans aside in favour of spending quality time with my favourites. Lovely. Have a pretty Tuesday, all, and a big hello to my new followers - welcome to the madhouse! ;)

  8. The pinafore is adorable and the print is great as well! I've been wanting one but I haven't seen any - and also I'd have trouble finding things to wear under it, but your shirt is perfect. Have a good week, keep warm!
