like a sorbet popsicle...

shini of park&cube is without a doubt one of the most inspiring girls i know. her sense of style is totally unique and she manages to pair the most unexpected items together in a way that just works (shaming the predictability of a lot of magazine editorials). there are so many beautiful elements to her outfit: pop bright colours in orange and green, pastel shirt buttoned up to the very top and layered under a lace top, chunky ring, kate kanzier nude heels, the wang braid... in theory all those elements sound like they would clash, but in reality they gel together to create this outfit masterpiece. a serious lesson in how to get dressed.
to top it all off she is the most delightful and down to earth person. for example: yesterday we met up in covent garden (yes yes, for cupcakes) and shini showed up a bit late due to unpredictable london traffic. halfway through she realized that one of the people sitting with us was the fabulous and insanely talented vanessa jackman. her reaction was to turn bright red, cover her face with her hands and yelp, 'vanessa jackman?! your vanessa jackman! i didn't realize, i love your blog, i'm such a fan...' see, totally adorable and utterly down to earth.
