Hello everyone! Thank-you for your response on my latest post about being alone and loneliness. I'm not the best at writing, so I'm so very glad you understood what I was trying to express, it was lovely to hear your feedback. I mentioned in my post on Monday that I was recently sent something from The Kooples, and here are the beautiful velvet and lace shorts I chose to recieve. Despite not knowing anything about the brand at first, I just had to say yes to have the opportunity to own such a lovely piece!  I adore the simple and androgynous style of their clothes, very me, wouldn't you agree? Anyway, I'm taking another trip to the V&A this afternoon to attend the members preview of 'The Cult of Beauty: The Aesthetic Movement 1860-1900' exhibition with my Grandma, I'm so very excited! I've been looking forward to this exhibition for well over a year, I just know it will be beautiful. Love, Jazzabelle.

  15. Oh I do love those shorts. They suit your style really well. I was looking on The Kooples website last week and wanted most things on there. They have some amazing flats studded with little metal skulls which are so cool. Out of my price range though!
