LFW

So LFW has been and gone. I was planning to go this season as I had a number of tickets for Fashion Scout shows, but sadly I couldn't make a single one. I was pretty gutted about it, but at least there's always next season. Even though winter is approaching and looking at SS15 collections may not seem quite appropriate at the moment, I'd thought that I'd share my favourite looks from some of the shows I was planning on going to. 


Jamie Wei Huang-Metaphysics 



This was the show I had been most looking forward to and it did not disappoint. I just wish that all of the clothes below could magically appear in my wardrobe right now... This collection was inspired by our existence as humans within an urban society, and the mix of smart and sporty elements is a wonderful contrast. I love the variety of materials and textures used, especially in the outfit below featuring the pink fur. 






Ong Oaj Pairam

Ong Oaj Pairam's collection this season was inspired by his fragmented memories of growing up by his family's noodle factory in Nakhon Ratchasima. The look below was by far my favourite as it involved two great loves of mine-pastel hues and wide leg trousers. 


As beautiful as these clothes are, a part of me cannot wait for the weather to get colder so I can finally cocoon myself in layers of clothing. England, why are you being so abnormally warm at the moment?

Pressed flower iPhone cases




If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram (@luciasloves) then you'll already have heard about this, but I thought that I would make a blog post announcing the fact that I have restarted my tictail store again. This time I'm not selling my old clothes, as I now use Depop for that, but these handmade iPhone cases. They're just simple and beautiful cases made using real pressed flowers and resin. I hope that you love them as much as I do, and if you'd be interested in purchasing one you can buy them here at luciasloves.tictail.com. I'm selling them for £15 including postage within the UK. If you're anywhere else in the world and would like one, just drop me an email (luciasloves@gmail.com) and I will be able to get one out for you and calculate shipping costs. You can also email me for any particular requests or if you'd like them done for a different phone case. 
I would absolutely love to have your support on this little venture, and any liking/regramming of images on Instagram or tweets etc would be so appreciated and who knows, maybe I'll give you a cheeky discount ;) ? I will be hosting a little competition to win one of these on my Instagram soon so make sure to look out for that!

P.S. Apologies for the complete lack of outfit posts <3

Travel Diary// Nice Part Two








This post seems to have mainly focused on the architecture in Nice. I absolutely love all of the buildings, and could quite happily walk around the old town and promenade for hours looking at them. I saw the pink bike for the first time down a little side street and it immediately attracted my attention. During my stay, I saw it a few times in different locations around Nice which made me feel some strange sort of connection with it and I became rather attached.

Travel Diary// Nice Part One












I decided to split my travel posts from France into a number of separate posts because I took far, far too many photos (nearly 2000 in 10 days). This may have been the best holiday I have ever had, and I hope that these photos reflect it. 
I stayed with my family in a rented apartment in Nice, and it was pure bliss as it gave us the flexibility of eating out when we wanted to or cooking. In the end we ended up cooking far more as my dad is an incredible chef and shopping at the local markets was so fun. I definitely recommend shopping at Liberation market if you go to Nice, as that is where all the locals go and the few times we went we were the only tourists. Don't be scared if you don't speak French as the market stall holders were all incredibly warm and friendly. In fact every single person we met was so kind, and we didn't have a single bad experience. 
Apologies for the poorer quality of the last three photos as the light was far from ideal, but I thought I would squeeze in a quick outfit too. This was my typical lounging around the apartment and people-watching from the balcony attire. 
If any of you happen to be going to the south of France and have any questions or would like some recommendations, just drop me an email (luciasloves@gmail.com) as I have so much more which I could say!

Dreamer




Top c/o Laundry Boutique, Jumpsuit: Zara, Shoes: Office

Don't you just love versatile clothing? Anything which can be transformed and worn multiple ways is a winner for me. This jumpsuit from Zara is possibly my favourite clothing purchase of the year so far. It is has a brilliant silver zip right down the front, which means that zipped down nearly the whole way, you can just tie it up and hey presto, you have a pair of trousers. I cannot wait to show you a post with the jumpsuit worn fully in all of its glory. This jumpsuit paired with the monochrome crop top makes the perfect slouchy-yet-still-looking-like-you-made-an-effort outfit. The top is actually more of a textured sort of material rather than jersey which I was expecting, and it makes it feel 10000 times more luxurious and expensive. And I adore how 'DREAMER' is printed along the bottom, because we are all dreamers to more or lesser extents.
