Rags of Love

It’s been a long time since I’ve done an outfit post but I couldn’t blog about Rags of Love without chatting clothes, could I?! But first: Belphoebe. The first time I discovered Rags Of Love, I found a girl with a sense of humour, with similar taste in clothes, and an Angela Carter fan to boot. Times have changed; both Bel and I have left peter pan collars behind for pastures new (Bel has gone more neon Hackney kid, whilst I’ve morphed to mundane office twat) but the humour, intelligence and personality I first fell for are still very much present. Yay for Belphoebe!

Last Friday I met Bel for lunch at Exmouth Market and two hours of houmous and unadulterated #ootd photos later I skipped back to my office with a massive smile on my face. “Blogger” is a a bit of dirty word and I’ve personally found the blogging world to be a cruel place (aside from a handful of lovely individuals), so apart from replying to comments I don’t engage much. However, making new friends in real life such as Bel more than makes up for the crappy online world and bizarre self-aware system we met through and it is these happy thoughts I’ve been carrying around all week. I want to meet all of you in real life now! Whose next??!

You can thank Bel for these awesome pictures. You’ve seen generic going-out Laila and this is default boring work Laila – print dress, one of my three jackets (tragic) and lots of stuff shoved in pockets. My knees look sort of weird?! I associate most of my dresses with boys I know; this one is the “Danilo dress” as the first time I wore it Danilo was wearing a check shirt in almost the exact same colours.

Which bloggers would you like to meet?

Dress – Miss Patina. Jacket – market in Barcelona.

    ok so I’m starting to realize it’s small world! I had been a reader of Belphoebe’s blog a while ago but I couldn’t remember the name of her blog! that’s so cool you guys got to meet and take photos 🙂
    It’s hard for people that are not a part of the blogging community to understand it so that’s nice you got to hang out with a kindred spirit 🙂
    Also your dress is cute and your knees aren’t weird they look normal 🙂

  2. I absolutely love that dress – so cool you got to meet-up 🙂

    That’s so nice that you met such a nice girl and now friend! I agree with you on the cruel world of blogging – it can be overwhelming somehow, and sometimes also shocking. But nice too! I met 2 great friends in London through blogging and I am so happy about it! I loved your dress and jacket! Hope you go on having a great week!

    I’m jealous that you guys got to meet! We will definitely have to do something together when I’m next in London. Now James is at UCL that should be often – I’m aiming to visit once a month. You look so cute here. I love your dress and your brilliant big smile! I wouldn’t call your outfit boring at all, it’s much more interesting than any other workwear I can think of xxx

    Yay a Laila outfit! I always love seeing examples of your style. I love that you associate your dresses with people, you could write an entire book about that! I’ve had a few interactions with bloggers in real life, especially since we have a bit of a group here in Nashville. It’s an interesting thing. Hearing people’s voices after reading so much of their writing is always weird to me!

    As always- thank you so much for your thoughtful comments to me! I replied to this on my blog, but I just want you to know: I do the SAME thing when journaling! Write in shorthand or dumb jokes that only I will understand, because I figure I’ll be the only one reading it anyway!! I loved hearing that from you!

    ♥ perfectly Priya
