As worn at the Caroline Hili show during Fashion Week
This is the last outfit of the day to come out of Fashion Week, though there were a couple more I do not have photos of alas. In which case I’ll find other avenues for outfit posting; for instance, I really hope (fingers crossed) that my travels this summer will allow me that. Up until then, here is what I wore to the Caroline Hili show at Lascaris Wharf for the show and the Upper Barrakka Gardens for post-show reception in Valletta. It was the coldest night of all the week I must say especially as both events took place outside, which was quite risky for me to choose something less than warm (hence the baroque dress worn in a subsequent show as seen in a previous post). But hey, I thought the suede material would keep me warm, and it’s in the name of fashion, right?
For this outfit I wanted to merge the 70s suede look with some ethnic hints (choice of bag); the latter I decided to clash against the leopard print heels, which added a touch of formality. I don’t usually wear clashing prints, but in this case I wanted to be more adventurous plus the base of both were similarly on the black and yellow.
Outfit details: dress – a brand called Kimika by TKMaxx (Manchester) | bag – bought from Long-neck Karen tribes in Chiang Mai, North Thailand | shoes – Xus | necklace & bracelet – Mvintage | vintage belt – this belonged to my mum who had bought it from London when she lived there in the 70s
