David Hockney: A Bigger Picture

Skirt and Shoes: Zara, Top: Topshop, Cardigan: H&M, Bag: Prada

Last month, I visited the David Hockney Exhibition at the Royal Academy of Arts. The grand scale of these retrospective works, using a pallet varying from shimmering yellow and blue hues to deep purple and orange tones, were incredible. Hockney definitely paints a picture of “fashion today”.

Next stop, we headed to Fortnum and Mason’s Fountain Restaurant for dinner, followed by tea and coffee at my favourite hotel in London: The St. James’s Hotel and Club! I can’t recount how many times I’ve come here, but its always great to go back to somewhere you know! I’ve also had Afternoon Tea and Lunch here too! Always a pleasure!

The weather hasn’t been great in London; hence I was wearing my new Zara Floral Print skirt and frill top! 🙂 Hope you enjoy the photos and are all having a wonderful weekend!

The Secrets of London

Dress: H&M, Coat: JOY, Brooch: Chanel, Bag: Balenciaga, Scarf: Louis Vuitton, Shoes: Salvatore Ferragamo

I went for a casual look today as today’s post is all about London! You’ll be surprised by many little things you can appreciate, from the architecture to the shop windows. Its not everyday that you have time to stroll leisurely and notice the small details that most people rush past. London’s hidden treasure is definitely St. Katherine’s Dock. Across Tower Bridge, I meandered along the river to Borough Market where I love getting fresh flowers and bread!

Its funny how many wonderful things we miss when we don’t take time to notice them.

Hope you enjoy the photos and have a good weekend!

Yayoi Kusama at the Tate Modern

Top and Shoes: Zara, Skirt: Aqua, Bag: Prada

The first time I ever heard about Yayoi Kusama was whilst I was watching a documentary about Marc Jacobs. To find out why Marc loves her so much, I came to the Tate Modern to find out for myself. Well, it was an exhibition like no other, no wonder it is selling out like crazy.  Each painting told a story mainly because her work contains a strain of self-absorption. Walking though the exhibition it feels like you are going though the journey of her life, almost like an autobiography in pictures. By the end, you think you know her…. But actually, you don’t at all.

Heather (my cousin) who had gone to see the exhibition before me advised me to wear something white on the day…. so I did…. Why? You’ll see when you visit! It’ll be a pleasant surprise! 😛
