SPRING SUMMER 14 - POWDER PASTELS

NOVELTY EYE'S SPRING EDIT CONTINUES

ph- Chris Murray



Another entry for my SS14 edition, these have been shot a while, it is just finding the time to share them you guys have been tricky. Loving these beautiful soft and sweet candy colours, with a punch of heavy blue denim. I think I probably wore all the pink items I own in this look. I am not a fun of the colour pink but if I'm to do it I will definitely do it this way - in a grown up manner. what do you guys think?

ENKI ETHIOPIA CAMPAIGN


Enki is a hand crafted boutique eyewear hailing from Sydney Australia. I love their designs, they are more than just sunglasses, they have a lot of character and depth in their designs. I love the carefully crafted bodied frames and their geometrical shapes, in their collection you will find different designs to suit all face types. I am in love with these shots by Sarah Christensen. At first glance it seems a very striped back story (look) where the intension was to allow only the glasses to stand out, which was definitely achieved if that indeed was the goal. Still I think these gorgeous traditional Mursi tribe ladies definitely stood out too, they made all the difference. They wear is so beautifully, frames perched on their perfectly structured cheekbones and beautiful smooth skin contrasting the bold designs in all makes these eyewear to be desired by all, definitely by me. Simplicity at it best, what do you guys think?

SPRING EDIT - PRINTS AND LEATHER


I am wearing an african print top which was a gift to me from a friend in Ghana. It came with trousers but I always wear them separately. Now they have two completely differently colours, I wear the trousers more than I do this top so it's worn out more. I love the colours and the pattern on reminds me of tie-dye. It's easy to wear, very breezy but also can keep you warm when tucked in. I actually want to pair it with a gorgeous brightly white midi A line skirt, tucked in with some beautiful slings sandals. Picture perfect for spring. So I'm on the look out for that skirt. In this looked I've paired it with easy black jeans and converses and threw on these malleable leather jacket for a very casual look for running errands.
