OUTFIT | Twinning

blazer: thrifted,  tapered trousers: Primark,  turtle neck top: Thrifted,  hats: H&M,  slip on shoes: NewLook,   SISTER'S -   jacket: Tkmaxx,  scarf: Pull&Bear,  bag: Asian Boutique,  jeans: Uniqlo

I have recently found myself obsessing on slip on shoes and I've shared this obsession with my sister. Easy and effortless are perfect words to describe them really. I mean those over used words may be quite sickening in the world of style blogging but I don't think I can find any other words to describe them. They are trainers at the end of the day but if you happen to know any let me know so I won't feel that uncreative and boring about it.
My sister and I have a lot of matching piece; seen here from the head wear and foot gear. As I think of it now, we do actually own a few matching pieces in our wardrobe. I don't know maybe it's the whole sisterly situation. We share our appreciation in aestethics of some things but we have different styles. She usually dress accessibly and more classic although she did say that she's been enjoying the whole "urban vibe" on things these days, even mentioning Rihanna as we discussed it. With my style preference however, as much as I've been loving the whole skirt thing, I do often find me on a menswear inspired and androgynous fits (always).

I  had the oppurtunity to help my good friend Ruth to style this shoot for her project for the raddest of the rad brands, The Ragged Priest. If you haven't had the chance to explore the brand, they reconstruct/rework pieces and sprinkle the glitter of edge to them.
I've noticed that they played with basic / sporty elements whilst giving a mass attention to details. The mundane cuts set off with the gnarly use of fabric which gives them my interest; seen from the zipped details on the jeans, the grid styled tartan print, the gloss & shine on the sweats and the contrast of the fur & leather on the jacket.
I compiled these looks with an edge and youthful character. As for what pieces I favour the most, I'd say the jeans and the jacket do it well for me. They are such versatile pieces and put together an outfit instantly.
