No, not exactly a cape. But wow, I haven’t worn my poncho in ages. Last times I remembered putting this beautiful thing out was during my visit at Tefaf in Maastricht and a sunny day in Cologne, which both is now exactly a year ago. Too bad but then again understandable since a poncho is something you can’t wear all the time. And still, I always try to be a little innovative with it. Surely, it would always look good with some black pants but then again…it bores me out to wear the same combinations over and over again (*this statement doesn’t apply to all of my black-in-black-love I’m deeply carrying in my heart).
Originally I wanted to go for my snake printed sneakers by Prego, which I wore during a day at Brick Lane some weeks ago, but then found another piece I didn’t wear in a longer time – the leo dress with its outstanding shoulderpads. Lastly worn during some hard study times (why the hell did I pull this for a day in library!?), I felt the urgent need to integrate it to my poncho outfit. Due to the fact that London weather is constantly changing from 4 degrees in the morning to 15 degrees in the noon up to 19 in the afternoon, I’m sick of changing my clothes twice a day (either I’m feeling too cold, then I’m leaving the tube feeling like I left the rain forest behind..). That’s why I thought that the dress will keep me warm and meanwhile doesn’t give a too hot ground for the poncho. As I’m just rarely putting any lighter shades on myself, I think that this is the best way I could have done an outfit exceptionally existing of beige and nude. I thought to combine this outfit to my favourite Guess heels but then found out that this looks way too bold. The heels would be fine but the black in contrast to these light tones would have been too harsh. That’s why I went for a completely new look and put on my just lately purchased Marant-alike sneakers.
