Fauxionable Outfit – Shades of Brown

I love this cashmere cardigan that my lovely sister bought for me from her many travels. It’s lightweight yet it keeps me warm albeit staticky at times!

Shopping Haul from London

Since I had to transit in London on my way back from Uganda, I decided to make a short trip out of it. I stayed for 6 days in London and some of the goodies I found include a skirt and scarf from Retro Clothing in Notting Hill, a vintage clothing store. That aside, I found a Red Ribbon pin which I have been wanting to buy (but was too stingy to pay postage for) in a charity shop, Trinity in Notting Hill as well. Additionally, I bought a peacock top from H&M and two boatneck long sleeve tops from ZARA and a crewneck short sleeve top (but I’m not posting any pics because they’re just basics!)I had initially planned on picking up my first Chanel bag (I mean wallet!), from this trip since the pound is still relatively weak but unfortunately they have long sold out on the item that I wanted to purchase so I bought the logo pearl pin instead which I posted earlier.My loot from London…

Red ribbon AIDS awareness pin
I have been wanting to purchase a red ribbon pin since I first saw one of my professors with one decked on his blazer. He wears it on his jacket/blazer/coat every day and I soon realized that I had to have one! Well, its only fitting since I am passionate about HIV/AIDS and as a public health professional who has a passion for fashion as well, what more than to make a fashionable statement? I have been wearing the pin on the lapel of my denim jacket as part of my outfit for the past couple of days. Love it!
