This might be news to some of you, but I am in London and I will be here for 6 months, then New York for 3 months and then back home to Sydney. So xssat will be bringing you the latest street styles from all around Europe for the next few months!

Britannia - Brick Lane

Britannia - Brick Lane

Yesterday was my first day in London, I knew I should try to stay up for most of the day and adjust my body clock so I went down to Brick Lane market. What a mish mash of characters and it was teeming with young people all dressed to be seen.

What I saw, I thought were all quintessentially British. From the classic coat reinterpreted by this guy above, all the elements of the outfit are very retro, the ray bans, the white sneakers and the pants, but together the look is utterly modern and very British.

Look at the girl above, her Madonna-esque outfit is fantastic, she reminds me so much of Vivienne Westwood. That essence of rebellious British youth expressed through fashion.

Black tie

I’ve been contemplating for a while whether I need to feature myself as more a presence here. Sure you see which outfits I like on the street, you even read my rambles on what I like about those outfits, but have you ever wondered just who am I?

Well, now you know, that’s me! I’m liking this bow tie trend so I went and bought a vintage bowtie. I’ve had those skinny jeans for a few months now but have only wore them a couple of times. So I decided to embrace my child bearing suitable hips and show them off.

And here in wardrobe remix fashion (excuse the unintentional pun), a list of what I’m wearing and where I got them from:
Bow tie: vintage from Surry Hills
Shirt: H&M
Belt: Sportsgirl
Jeans: Superfine
Boots: Vintage from Cream on Crown

More of these to come I’m sure.
