Native Heart

You don’t know how ecstatic I was when I came back from holiday to find these shorts waiting for me. I was sent them by Native Heart Vintage a lovely website where you can actually customise and choose how and what you want on your shorts!!! I had the hard choice of deciding between the multitude of different combinations... Acid wash, Ombre, American Flag, Pyramid studs, Dome studs ... If I could I would have had them all.
I finally chose the acid wash distressed shorts; I really felt they would go with almost everything in my wardrobe. When they arrived with a hand written note and beautifully wrapped it made me love them even more. Check out their site here.
 So unique.
I’m wearing my new favourite shorts with a Gok Corset. Ok so it’s technically shape wear ... but I love the little corset/ bodies that are around at the moment, sadly I have found it very hard to find one that fits my chest, this is simple enough to sort of work the “underwear as outer wear” look.
The paisley kimono was a find from Boohoo.... as I have said before they do surprise me sometimes and have some lovely pieces.
The shoes are Jeffrey Campbell Gypsy Clogs, I have wanted a pair ever since I saw them on Madeline from Jean Greige (I find her very inspiring and her jewellery is insane!). I scoured the internet for AGES before I finally found them on EBay of all places. They remind me of my Barbie’s shoes when I was younger- they make your foot look so cute!

  8. Those shoes are gorgeous. And those Gok corsets are really flattering (not that you need it) my mums friend has one and it worked amazingly, although I was wondering if they were comfortable..
    I so agree with Boohoo, sometimes the stuff is so horrendous but I've been seeing some real gems lately, as have you I see from that Kimono.
