I’ve been feeling pretty casual & laid back recently with the warmer days creeping in, sticking to easy dresses, old favourite jeans and comfy shoes. These skinny jeans from Label Lab are the most perfectly faded black, they look like my favourite love-worn pairs, except without the actual wear & fear of them biting the dust at any moment! I’m a little gutted that they’re not quite high waisted enough on me to wear with little cropped tops without my stomach being out (damn my long torso!) but they’ve now set me off searching for a super high waisted pair to do just that with.
This beautiful grey clutch is from British brand Makki, who’s focus is on responsible luxury & creating pieces which are ethical without sacrificing style. I have a black zip wallet from the brand already, and it’s one of the most hard wearing purses I’ve ever owned. Despite getting beaten up in my bag on a regular basis it still looks brand new, thanks to the super soft & durable eel skin all of Makki’s bags and purses are made from, which is sourced as a by-product of the wider food industry. The Nuevo Disco style clutch was one of their first products & is still one of their best sellers too, it’s perfectly classic & unfussy, giving center stage to the unusual material. I love how this elephant grey colour really highlights all the subtle different tones of grey, so beautifully showing off the texture & unique markings of the eel skin.
