The Throwback

The Throwback: Black and Gold

Hello world,

Another oldie, but goodie from The Fashion Nomad archives, this time from June 2012. I was a big fan of this canary yellow blazer from Zara and at the time insisted on teaming it with everything from black maxi dresses to shorts and wedges. The zip details on it are amazing and the colour is so bold, but it really was far too heavy for a jacket in June. But that’s the thing with fashion, sometimes you catch yourself wearing a bikini in February and a wool jacket in June.  It’s all rather crazy. It’s a wonder we bloggers don’t suffer from pneumonia half of the year and sweat ourselves silly the other half. but you suffer for the art of fashion.

Jacket: Zara, old
Dress: Tally Weijl, old
Ballerina flats: HM, old
Rings: Forever 21, old
Necklace: DIY, see how I made it here

Until then,




Fresh out of college with an MA in Journalism, a passion for clothes, fashion and styling shoots, I was also the fashion editor of a magazine my colleagues and I set up called SCOPE magazine, which was disbanded three years ago. For now I'm just a freelance journalist and blogger.
Other than obsessing about fashion, I love theology and history, writing apocalyptic fiction (it's weird, I know!) and the occasional weeekend of horse-riding if I have the time and I don't injure myself in the process.
