(Taylor) Please excuse my obvious inability to be serious in front of the camera. The entire shoot consisted of me laughing at my own jokes for an excuse to not pose, and Ben telling me to stop being weird. Our first outfit shoot became an accidental ode to socks and flatforms. This is not a new concept, but it's versatile, and warm. My socks are Hansel from Basel from The Happy Cabin in West End, my new favourite space. I was also trying to salvage some of my Splendour weekend state of mind, wearing shorts from Sunday Social's pop up stall. I don't actually wear much block colour, so this bag helps me to not accidently look gothic for once. This perception is often brought on by my love of vintage inspired black lace which I'm demonstrating here, and will continue to demonstrate way too frequently.
(Claudia) I still can't quite come to terms with the fact that I actually wore this outfit. I'm very much a black on grey on denim kind of girl so I don't know how I suddenly have all this pastel in my wardrobe. Like Taylor I was ridiculously awkward during our first shoot and Ben deserves a medal for dealing with our incessant giggling and bad jokes. I absolutely adore flatforms right now, as well as any sort of sandals with socks so my feet are probably my favourite part of this outfit. Otherwise it’s a pretty simple get-up and is generally a lot more "put-together" than anything I usually wear. I've never really appreciated purple as a wearable colour for me but I think the purple collar of this shirt sort of makes it that much better. No chance of me getting mistaken for a goth on this one, but under Taylor's influence I'm sure that'll happen at some point in the near future...
