london fairytale.

"There's nowhere else like London. Nothing at all, anywhere." - Vivienne Westwood

An outfit post which is intertwined with a visual depiction of a fashion capital: a dream for any fashion blogger. Which is why I was so delighted to shoot an outfit in the beautiful city of London, capturing many aspects of the city which I love. I had the pleasure of modeling for one of the most talented 16-year-old photographers I know, Katya of Katya Brigitte Photography. For one sun-streaked afternoon in London, with a sharp wind blowing through Hyde Park (one of London's most gorgeous tourist attractions), we photographed an outfit that I had bought almost entirely in New York City. Add in a couple of breathtaking vintage necklaces from India and you've got a very cosmopolitan, diverse outfit post in front of you. I have to once again thank Katya for such a lovely photoshoot; one that has been the best I've done so far as a fashion blogger. It was all due to the photography, which was balanced between striking colors (due to the vibrant backdrop of the city) and subtle black and white variations. 
Dress: Aqua (Bloomingdales)
Wedges: Steve Madden
Necklaces: Both vintage, from India
Every picture was taken in a different location in London, all close to a particular region of Hyde Park. Amongst the dreamlike fields, filled to the brim with flora and fauna, we perched on the grass and I posed against nature. We then walked to the mews across the park, where a set of colorful doors served as a perfectly bold background.
The dress was incredibly versatile, being one of the best items I bought during my month-long stay in New York City. The design itself consisted of a rich navy-blue hue which was adorned with typical sailor-esque white stripes. A sleek silhouette is the second thing you'll notice of the dress – form-fitting and a merge between a maxi and a mini. In terms of shoes, I wore my favorite new wedges from Steve Madden, which are perfect for almost any look. The true versatility of the dress shines through when accessories are added to the ensemble. I donned two different neckpieces – one that was a kaleidoscope of different-sized turquoise stones and the other a long stream of lush neutral-toned beads. With the accessories came a touch of India, a place so close to my heart, and yet another piece of diversity becoming a part of this London fairytale
Again, thank you to Katya for a lovely photoshoot! I may have left London a week ago, but the memories of the holiday will always remain with me, all because of these photographs. The title of this post is certainly not self-explanatory, but hopefully you got some sense of a "fairytale" setting through the photos and my outfit. London is truly a magical city and throughout my photoshoot, I saw that it has some old-world charm that is not found in many modern places in the world today. London connects history with a gleaming new world, creating an utterly unique fairytale for all of its inhabitants.
