I'm sure you remember how much I've praised the V&A in my previous post. Well, I got these buttons/bagdes there - they were designed by Yohji Yamamoto for the V&A as he had an exhibition there which unfortunately closed a few days before I visited. I couldn't see the exhibition but the museum shop was still full of little souvenirs connected to it, these fun badges among them. Figuring I would probably never be able to afford anything else by Yamamoto, I thought I'd get these badges for half a Pound each.
I'm a big fan on buttons/badges, they can transform a simple piece of clothing to something much cooler. My winter coat has huge lapels and I usually cram them with badges, prompting comments from random strangers like: "Are you a scout or what?". :P
I wore this ensemble to an exhibition opening and a party held by one of my friends, Sophie, and I was really happy to get a few compliments on it. I guess it's fine to keep stuff simple sometimes - most of my rather elaborate outfits fall into the "man-repelling" category. :)
Please disregard my belly. Thanks. :)
So what I wore: Yohji Yamamoto badges plus one from New Yorker, Takko jeans,
second hand top, H&M bolero and shoes from a random boutique.
I'm slowly but surely approaching my 50th blogpost which I aim to celebrate with a giveaway, so stay tuned! :)
