August 13 2018

It’s been a couple of years since I purchased my first pair of Loubs! It’s also been a while since I thought me owning a £500 pair of shoes was really needed… Until now. Lol! I just came across these, and OMG I’m in love! 😍 They are a minimal leather black heeled sandal, sleek in every sense, with the added glamour of the PVC-trimmed straps and signature red sole. The Jonatina. As you can imagine, I am… TEMPTED! Are you? 😉 And if you could have any colour, which one would you go for? Black, Nude, Coral, Yellow, or… Read More »

I was in the middle of trying on my new buys, and decided to style and shoot this peacock kimono in my compound. I love the different hues of blue, turquoise and touches of yellow.
